Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired engineer living in Michigan who fills in many of his days with golf and woodworking.

But my favorite retirement activity is discovering my family genealogy history along with the stories and oral history as it has been passed down through the generations.

I have documented 7000+ family member's genealogy using MyHeritage software on a private family web site. Now I am adding some of my ancestors to Find A Grave to make some of my findings public.

Family names being researched include: Brock, Weaver, Critchlow, Yetter, Gilchrist, McFadden, Ellenberger, Orr, Miller, VanDyke, Hoffman, Stevens, Shaffer, Atwell, Snay and Ghost.

Genealogy records available for any branches of my family if you are related to one of my documented memorials. Also fell free to use any of my posted photos. Higher quality versions are usually available for the asking.

I noticed that you have referenced that he is buried in Lancaster. that seems odd since he has had property in Westmoreland County since 1769. And some of his children are still in the Westmoreland area. I am descended from his daughter Mary who is married to Christian Fleeger, lives near West Sunbury, Butler County. Mary and Christian are pro ported buried on their property on Jamisonville Rd.

RE: Hebert Simons
Seems odd though, about the same age but the WWII enlistment has a different date. It was a shot in the dark and both from Indiana. I'll keep searching. thanks

Hebert Simons
I looked on for Herbert Simons. Found this US Army enlistment WWII for HERBERT SIMONS.
Event Date: 18 Oct 1943 (but he died Aug 1, 1943?)
Event Place: Evansville, Indiana
Birth year: 1918
Birthplace: Indiana
Education level: Grammar school
Civilian Occupation: Semi-skilled chauffeurs and drivers, bus, taxi, truck and tractor
Marital status: divorced without dependents
Military rank: Private
Serial # 35807894

according to this he enlisted Oct 18, 1943. The picture I have was taken Jan 1943 and H.L. Simons was a Sgt. Either this is another Herbert Simons or the initials are for another person. Any suggestions?
