FAG is about sharing, so please be considerate and if you're not sure, just ask. Few people will say no. Thank you for respecting the work of others!

My favorite way to contribute is by submitting edits to fill in missing information, especially the important work of joining relations to help visitors find the relatives they're searching for. Surnames of special interest include Schultz, King, Burns and Gerfin.

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 and vital statistics of all of Christian Otto and Christiana's descendents.

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, joy 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.

Eliza Jane King Hawkes
Eliza Jane is my Grandfather Frank King Hawkes mother the only thing I have which I don,t know if it is true is that Eliza Jane was married to William Hawkes and they had 6 Children Thomas J,Helen I,My Grandfather Frank King,William H Jr,Celelia and Joseph T.I never did get to know my grandfather because he died in 1946 and I was born in 1948 so my mother Frank's daughter was only 16 when he died.By looking at things on the computer I found a Eliza Hane King Hawkes that died in 1902 by drowning in the Kennebec River.But I can not find any obit on her or any other information on her anything that you would have on this King family would be great.Edith Kelly Bond E-mail address is

Jennie Darling- Laurel Grove
I did not see Jennie Darling's grave.I have a picture of what I am assuming would be her daughters grave if you are interested. I also have a picture of Hala B darling's grave. Those two are on the same stone as Horace Schultz.

Christian Otto Schultz
Hello, Christine,

My mother, Jocelyn Florence Schultz De Noce, and I are also direct descendants of Christian Otto Schultz and Maria Christina Scharpenstein of Rhinebeck, New York. My maternal great-grandparents are Isaac Vanderhoff Schultz of Rhinebeck, New York and Luedna Violet Greer of Brockville, Ontario, Canada. I am wondering if you already knew that you are our cousin?

Effie Marquardt - Rhinebeck Cemetery
Hi Chris

I have made the suggested changes you send about Effie Marquardt's parents, but I do see that in Dougliss' obit it says that he and his wife only had one child, Edwin.

RE: Photos
Happy to do it! I wish I'd paid more attention, though, I usually try to get the photos more close up.

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.

At the end of the second paragraph of my profile page, I list 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 when he typed in the name of the ship; needless to say, we were all in a state of shock! Another excellent source is, and it's amazing what google will bring up sometime. Happy hunting.

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,
