Johan Adam Beckenbaugh
Hi Jim,

I think I'm a cousin, but I have conflicting information. I'm supposedly a descendant of George Peter Beckenbach (DOB 10/12/1738, DOD Apr 1785), born in Baden, Heidelberg, Germany, son of Johann Adam Beckenbaugh and Anna Maria Schmitt.

I see you have a different son George listed as Johann and Anna's son. I'll have to find out how I got the information.

RE: Anna Henwood
It's a beautiful graveyard. Well worth a visit, I think. That's why I started volunteering to take photos there--I went there whenever I was in the area anyway just to look around, so I thought I may as well make myself useful.

I'm about an hour and fifteen minutes away, but have business near WLH every few weeks, which is mostly the only time I make it there.

By the way, I noticed a George Wood in the background of the group shot someone added for Abraham Henwood and others (I also have a shot of that grouping). I don't have a connection for him to the Henwoods, but I do see his memorial doesn't have a photo. I'll upload a crop of my group shot to his and try to get a better photo next time.

Anna Henwood
The reason I got on to the Henwoods was that I had done a request for a Wood earlier, and when I saw the marker in Merion 120 for

William Wood (Find A Grave #91322485)
1812 --1898
His Wife
Sarah Wood (Find A Grave #91322464)

plus three of their children (Eliza, Frances W. and Charles Rea, and William's mother, Sarah-- all six of them on the one marker), I thought I'd snap it in case they were part of the other Wood family.

So, in case you don't know, Anna Henwood was née Wood, daughter of the William and Sarah, above. I added the connections, but the manager of her memorial hasn't accepted the edits yet. There is another sister or two not on the group marker, but said to also be on Merion 120, as is Anna. I did not see any other markers on that plot, but I could have missed them. I will look next time I go to WLH, but that may not be for another few weeks, so I won't claim the request just yet.

RE: Kelli
I can't remember the exact month of her death, but she was born in Nov 1977, and was 29 years old when she died, so I guess it was 2006 or 2007 (if I did my math right!). Thank you and have a nice night!

Hi Jim,
Like I said I don't know how to use this site well, so I hope I'm doing this right! There is another grave I am very interested in seeing: My best childhood friend,Kelli Gillespie, who was born on November 11, 1977 in Baltimore, Maryland. God bless her heart, she died at 29 years old of breast cancer. Right before she died she married a man with the last name of Gilley, and I believe she's in Parkton Cemetery off of Taylor Avenue in Baltimore. (Along with my great grandparents the Emerson's). If you happen to have any information I would be very interested. If I can help you in any way please let me know.
Thanks and God bless!

Sarah Good 1781-1836
This may not be my Sarah.
There were so many Sarahs back then and even more than one Sarah Good and some even from the same area.
Thank You for your help.

Jim- Thanks so much for these- I can see you have been busy at Glen Haven. This has been my most challenging part of my family history- few obits, death dates etc. So every piece of information is a huge help and I so much I appreciate the efforts- I think someday I will get lucky with all the details- and these Matthews will start appearing!

RE: Sarah Good
The Sarah Good I speak of was married to Alexander Good who was supposedly born in or near Baltimore about 1781. We think our Sarah died, probably, before 1840. There was a move, by wagon train, from W Va to Ohio in the 1836 time frame and Alexander then married a much younger woman. My grandmother who started researching Alex Good in 1948 never could find the woman she thought was Sarah, nor the parents of Alex not any of his siblings.
I can't make the facts totally fit, but, the dates for this Sarah Good's birth and death fit. If her married name was 'not' Good, but rather her maiden name, perhaps she was a sister.
I sure would like to make some head way with this 60 year plus search.
Thanks for answering my email,
Sharon in Kansas
