I am helping my mother with her genealogy research by locating our ancestors' graves. Then, I got involved with several friends, helping them create their trees and memorials. You can see the names we are following in my virtual cemeteries. Along the way, I have found others' ancestors and created their pages. Now I have documented our ancestry to Col. Daniel Boone which was very interesting. And, finding the "Women of the American Revolution." Next trying to break down several "brick walls."

If I have entered any information that is incorrect, please contact me for a correction. I want to keep the information as accurate as possible.

I'm happy to transfer management to family members, just ask! Please use the "Edit" tab and "Suggest a Correction" when doing so and remember to give your member# along with your relationship or reason for the transfer.

I believe that memorials should belong to family members whenever possible, as family have a personal interest in honoring their relatives and are better able to complete, maintain and improve memorials with additional details and research. I am more than willing to have family members "adopt" them.

Please feel free to use any photos I have posted in your research work. Photo courtesy of Find-a-grave member #47361005

RE: John Heivly headstone
My pleasure. I was mistaken though, his military service wasn't mentioned on his stone.

Sarah Miller Edit 135518396
I do believe Elizabeth Bentz is the second wife of Judge David H. Newcomer. They had one child: David McGackey or McGaughey Newcomer. Almost all older death certificates has misspellings or mistakes. I believe the first wife of Judge David H. Newcomer died after the birth of Benjamin Franklin Newcomer in 1842 or 43. She was born about 1810. Her name is unknown and not shown on census records. I believe Judge David Newcomer married his second wife, Elizabeth Bentz around 1846 before the birth of his last child David Mc. That shows the second wife on the census records with all the children, but she was not the mother of all the children. See the tree on Ancestry of Hutson Kessler family tree. That may shed some light on this.

Sarah Miller Edit 135518396
It appears the edit for the mother of Sarah Miller is Elizabeth Bentz and not Elizabeth Smith. Elizabeth Bentz was the second wife of David Newcomer and not the mother of Sarah. The wife linked to David Newcomer is his second wife Elizabeth Bentz. Is this correct?

Yes, the stone did mention his military service.

John Hively
I believe I've found this gentleman. However, the name on the stone reads John H. Heivly. He was born in 1842 and he died in 1919. Could this be the man you're looking for?

RE: Mary Jane Montgomery Frier #155062175
Thanks for your prompt reply. Yes I do think that Robert Fryer/Frier's wife was Jane Kennedy. I was aware that the DAR and others have a Jane Montgomery OWP Stafford, Va but have concluded from the following:
In will for James Frier dated 12 Oct 1766, Londonderry, Chester Co., Pa, he names his son Robert Frier of Loudon Co., Virginia, son James Frier, son-in-law Abel Hodgson and son-in-law Andrew Bear and daughter, Jean Bear. The will also mentions James's widow, Jane Frier. In a deed for the same James Frier (Fryer) dated 1767, Londonderry Chester Co., Pa land is divided between eldest son, Robert Frier (Fryer) of Loudon Co., in colony of Va, and Jane, his wife, son James Frier (Fryer) also of Loudon Co **** The marriage date of Robert and Jane must have been before 1766 when the will was written. Robert Fryer and James Fryer are on the tax lists for Chester County., Pa 1762,3,4,5,6 as is Donald Kennedy, whose will I quoted. True I do not have a marriage license but neither does the DAR.
Loudon Co VA deed Book-F pp 296-298 between Bryan Fairfax and Robert Fryer of county Loudoun farm let parcel of land ** Robert Frier, Jane his wife and James Kennedy his son. Thus I find both families in Chester Co., Pa. Fogg's Manor is the church where the Kennedy's are listed, do not have marriages that far back, but why would Robert Frier go to Stafford to get married or name a child James Kennedy? Sorry to make a fuss but I will of course abide by your decision.
Sincerely, Norma

Mary Jane Montgomery Frier #155062175
Correction Regarding the maiden name for this lady:
Will March 9, 1773 Londonderry Township, Chester Co., Pa David Kennedy "to daughter Jean Fryer Sixty pounds" Robert Frier is of Londonderry township, Chester co., Pa. I find Jean/Jane used interchangeably in these records. I have not found a marriage record.
