RE: re Samuel Hendricks
Yes, hi cousin! In looking at my tree, I see that Cristiana was married to John George Gottshall/Godshalk is that what you have? I simply copied that from somewhere, I didn't research that myself. If so, we are related through that line because John's brother, Peter Gotshall, was my 5th gr-grandfather :)

I'm not sure that I have any documentation to show that Cristiana was the daughter of Henry Hendricks but I will look. If you drop me a note at we can continue to share in an easier way than trying to do it here. Liz

RE: re Samuel Hendricks

Thank you for contacting me about Samuel Hendricks! He was my 5th gr-grandfather so I guess we are distant cousins. If you are interested in comparing notes about the family genealogy let me know as I am happy to share.

Unfortunately, PA Archives series 6 vol 1 page 614 is not proof of participation in the revolutionary war. That is a "return of the first class" and not an accounting of people who actually served. The class return is like registering for a draft; if the military needs more men they call up the next class as identified in the list.

Samuel Hendricks also appears on several other lists which point to his not having been a soldier. In one in particular, PA archives series 2, vol 14, page 37, he is listed on the return of non-associators. Non-associators were men who paid a fine rather than serve in the Revolutionary War.

I believe previous researchers- including perhaps the one who completed the SAR application- thought the class return meant actual service and mistakenly said he was a Rev war patriot. I know I made that same error initially. He was a mennonite and many mennonites refused to fight in the war.

I'm very interested in finding proof he did actually serve; however, at this point all evidence points toward his not having served in the Rev War.

Thanks again for contacting me. I appreciate it.

RE: Abraham Clemens Kratz
I live very close to Blooming Glen as well. Maybe this weekend I'll have time to run over and look at the plot marking at the Blooming Glen Cemetery. I'll let you know. So many of the stones at the Deep Run Cemetery are unreadable. They have a listing of their records online, which is where I looked for the listing for Abraham. There was none listed. I'll let you know when I get to Blooming Glen.

RE: Whiteman headstone
You're very welcome!

I enjoy taking the photos for others but I have to say when I take a photo of anyone who served in the military it means so much more.

I was truly proud to grant your request!

RE: Rosenbergers
Glad to do it. Next I'll try Deep Run East - so big it's scary! Let me know it there's anything I can do to help you in this area.
Happy hunting!
