Adam Joseph Humig

Brookville Democrat: June 2, 1898
Adam Humig of Oak Forest died Thursday, 26th inst., after a lingering illness, aged 74 years, and was buried Saturday at St. Philomena church. Father Andreas officiating. He was a good citizen, a faithful church member and has gone to receive his reward.

Not sure you are still doing this, since you never answer any messages. If you see this, and want to transfer the Humig's to me, please do. Thanks

William Humig
What can you tell me about William Humig, Birth: 1834 --- Death:1917 ?
I have been unable to find him in this cemetery, and nothing is mentioned in the records about him. Where did you find this? Would love to link him into my Humig family. He HAS to be related since there are so few with that name. Just wish I knew more. my 2 times great grandfather was Adam Joseph Humig, born March 15, 1824 and died May 26, 1898. They MUST be brothers or cousins. If you can help, let me know!

Bethlehem Cemetery Location
Hi Iva Sue--First, thanks for all you do on Find a Grave. I grew up in Bath. My main lines are Beesley/Burke and Luker/Balmain. I now live in Washington State so I don't get to visit too often.

I'm curious where Bethlehem Cemetery is in relation to Bath. Next time I'm back there I would like to visit it.

I do visit the Old Franklin Cemetery and the New Fairfield Cemetery when I get back there.

#47844266 George Gindling

I have been working on adding a few people to the cemetery listings. My great grandfathers sister married a George Gindling, and they are both buried at Oak Forest. I noticed you have an infant under that name listed. I had copied the cemetery records, and the only George Gindling listed is the one I was looking for. He was born on the same date as the infant you listed, April 23, 1853, but he died Feb. 14, 1900. Any chance you made a mistake, or are there 2 George Gindlings, born on the same day, and died at different times? Elizabeth Humig Gindling's obituary says she was buried at Oak Forest, and although she is listed as being buried in the Catholic Cemetery at St Philomena/St Cecelia, (no dates listed) there is also an Elizabeth Gindling buried at Wolf Creek, they died 10 years apart, and both were married to George Gindlings. LOL! It gets confusing. Hope you are still active on this.

Martha Davis Sater
In the Bio of Martha Davis Sater 50541769, you have a date of marriage that is after the births of their 5 children. Henry Sater 50541758, first married one Martha Sater Sater 74947350. On her memorial is a detailed reference showing two marriages, one in Baltimore, one in Ohio. She and Henry moved to Ohio, most likely when her parents did in 1812. After his first wife died in 1812, he married Martha Davis in 1814. They moved to Franklin, IN and had several kids. Please review the memorial at #74947350.

Mary Ann Polly Smith Fulton
Just wondered if you could close up Smith.
Might make it hard for someone to search for her.
