Thank you
Jack, you are great! Thank you so much. I figured Blooming Grove was probably wrong. As for Magdalena, I am really glad you found this. I am sure I have looked for her before, but for some strange reason did not find her.

One last question--are the tombstones still legible? If so, when you have time, could you take a pic? I am also wondering if it would be worth my while to drive out there (I am in Michigan). Are there more records that aren't online? I am especially interested in when/how the Wursters came over. And whether Wursters and Kurtzes come from same area of Germany and might have known each other before coming over.

Hi. I am trying to locate information on Johann George (Georg) Wurster, his wife, and his daughter Magdalena Wurster Kurtz. There are 2 entries for him on Find-a-Grave, one at Anthony Cemetery in Williamsport, PA (Find A Grave Memorial# 27600534), and one at Blooming Grove Cemetery in Cogan Station (Find A Grave Memorial# 68033985). I can't imagine that he is buried at both, though perhaps he has 2 headstones, one at each. Do you have any information? Would you be able to take pictures. His wife is presumably Barbara Dolker (Delker). Thanks for any help you can provide.

Samuel Southard
I'm so sorry about how long it as taken me to respond to your very generous request of taking a pic of Samuel Southard tombstone @ Quaker Hill Cemetery. This information was helpful in climbing me family tree. Thank you very much. Have a blessed Thanksgiving :)

Dear Jack, Thank you for getting these two photos for me so fast. I have also put in a photo request for Catherine Meyers/Myers Stryker and her husband. Hopefully they are in your area. Sincerely, Ruth

#62582770 Joe Edward Nixon
Hello Mr. Diehl,

My name is Kathy Finnigan Quade and I am researching my family history, The Williams of Burleson County.

In researching my family, I had a great Aunt by the name of Allie Matilda Williams. She married a Fletcher J. Nixon on May 7th, 1894.

According to an old family photo I found in my Aunt's chest, Allie and Fletcher had 3 children.
Jesse Lee Nixon
Ethyl L. Nixon
Joseph Edgar Nixon

Joseph Edgar is the person I am writing you about. Is it possible that Joseph Edgar is your Joe Edward Nixon? Do you know his parent's history? Their names or where they are from?

All I have is this picture of their family, with my aunt's handwriting listing Fletcher and his sister with her baby, Allie and Joe Edgar as a baby, a small girl which is listed as Ethyl Nixon and a young teenager which is listed as Jesse.

I am so excited to have found this possible lead.

I am the youngest grandchild and my older cousins didn't even know where their great Aunt had been buried. It has been a long journey, but an interesting one.

I believe you would be interested in the Williams if they are your family. You may view them in my public tree "Williams Ancestry Tree" at if you wish.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Have a wonderful holiday.

Thanks so much, Kathy Finnigan Quade
