Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the Fifth Great Granddaughter of Christian Otto Schultz, of Rhinebeck, NY, through his son Peter. Peter was one of eight brothers who were revolutionary war patriots. I'm working on the burial sites of all of Christian Otto and Christiana's descendents. There are many of us, so it is a work in progress!

My paternal Grandmother was a King, and what a lot of Kings there were and are! They were boilermakers and laborers and other hard-working folks from Bath, Maine. The families were large, most had little money, and the stories are sometimes hard to take. Infants died more often than in the wealthier side of the family, women married and died young, children didn't always get to stay with their Mom and Dad. The Kings that survived were sometimes badly damaged by their experiences. Theirs is a story of generations of survivors with no choice but to find the strength to survive and overcome life's tragedies. It's not a pretty story, not always an honorable one, but it's honest and has moments of triumph and hope.

On my Mother's side, we have Burns and Gerfin, two names that lead back to Canada, PA, Maine and MA. Behind the Burns, we find the early settlers of Union, Maine, including Phillip Robbins who's home now houses the historical society, the Cummings, with a few courageous fellows who headed off to Lexington, and before them, William and Johanna Towne, my 9G Grandparents, who's three daughters were accused during the hysteria of the Salem witch trials. Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Esty, were hung. Sarah was accused after she protested her sister's innocence and spent nearly a year in jail. Her case was finally dismissed by Grand Jury.

Christine ~ I too am a great granddaughter (6th) of Christiana Sharpenstein and Otto Schultz but through their son Jacob who married Ursula Schryver. They in turn had a daughter Anna, not sure if you have this information as I didn't see it listed on your page. If you would like more information please message me and I would happily give it to you for your research. I have been making some trips to Rhinebeck, the next time I am there I will stop at the cemetery and try to find the graves.

uboat.net
At the end of the second paragraph of my profile page, I list uboat.net as one of my main sources. That's where we found what happened to my father's ship, the MS Lake Osweya, several years ago. Our government never told us anything except 'lost and presumed dead' and that's all we had for years. My son stumbled onto uboat.net when he typed in the name of the ship; needless to say, we were all in a state of shock! Another excellent source is usmm.org, and it's amazing what google will bring up sometime. Happy hunting.

Regards,

Patricia

I've made the transfer. So glad you left your token so that this could be done. It's always good to be able to give these memorials to family so that they can be completed and linked.

Take care,

Patricia

Hi Christine,

I just came across the token you left on this memorial. Since you referred to Mr. Wicks as your cousin, I take it you're related. Would you like to have maintenance of this memorial? Now that I have the information entered, my goal is to transfer all of these Merchant Marine memorials to family. If you're interested, let me know.
I enjoyed your page and the way you described your history. Very interesting.

Regards,

Patricia

Hi Chris

I've asked D Thomas to delete his entry but he has not - that's all I can do. Thanks for added info though!

You're very welcome for the photos. I'm glad I could help. The blankets were already in place when I took the pictures.
Have a good one...Glenn

I can't send openly information about living family members etc. That should be done by email. I am Marshall Davies Lloyd mlloyd57@gmail.com. Please contact me so we can share info. Lucia is the daughter of Susan (Ten Broeck) Kendall. Her husband Wallace Crane Kendall is on Find A Grave --http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=68836233 which gives you her father Robert Livingston Ten Broeck.

John
Yes, this is John's resting place. Angela must have had him buried right there in Jackson ville. I do explain at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=101922113 that it is his maternal line that raised him. I met both him and Angela years ago and have been in communication with his kids. John married 1.Jane Howard Austin
with children: 1. Julia Anna Tenbroeck; 2.John Scott Tenbroeck; and 3. David Austin Tenbroeck.

His mother Alice Ursula Ten Broeck (Birth 02 Dec 1912 in Rhinebeck, Dutchess, New York, USA-Death 26 Apr 1993 in Portland, Multnomah, Oregon, USA) m. John Biehl (1898 1981) by whom she had 2 half-siblings to John TB: Paul Biehl and Francis (Frank) J Biehl. Family tells me Roland Martin Lyles m. Opal and had a third half-brother James C Lyles.

I wouldn't put much stock in documents from Alice that said she had no dependents. Most women in that era would not admit to children out of wedlock.
