Please delete the certificate. I will then make the changes. The last time I looked, Find A Grave rules said that death certificates should not be entered as photos. I feel the same thing about any printed matter. I would have accepted the correction without written proof. Thanks Sharon

RE: Gramma Puntenney
Member of Ancestry? If yes, try looking for Sarah Hollingsworth, b.1739 d.1786 or Hannah Nelson b.1720 d.1787. Should take you to "James Hollingsworth" Family Tree and most of my full sources.
Note: place Baltimore, MD = Baltimore County, Maryland.
You can contact me through Ancestry too.

RE: Gramma Puntenney
FYI - 15 Nov 1783, Delivered 27 Feb 1784
Baltimore County, MD, Land Records
Aquila Punteny, adm of his father's Joseph Punteny Estate.
Aquila appointed William Osborn who resided in Harford Co. in his stead. Reason given: Aquila was residing in Westmoreland Co., PA.

No, I am not a member of DAR. I obtained most of this info from books years ago while trying to trace Ann Shea nee Cutching "Nearest of Kin".

Unfortunately, I don't know if I can call you cuz! My primary line is Shea/Shay and their wives ie Ann Cutching. After all these years I have not proven or disproved the link I need to Thomas Shea.

George Hollingsworth, The Elder. I did not get a copy of original arrival papers from MDSA or do any in depth research on this fact. Re: not sure direct ancestor. I found info saying he was transported 1676 in "The Early Settlers of Maryland" by Gust Skordas, Genealogical Publishing Co., Baltimore, MD., 1995, p.233, gives Libre 15, folio 397.

Thanks for all your entries on Find A Grave.

Photo request for Mildred Wade
I'm in the process of obtaining the plot location for Mildred. The contributor that initially added the memorial has an incorrect year of death. Do you happen to know what year she died? That will be helpful to obtain the location. Thanks so much!

Elizabeth Boyer
Issue: Did Elizabeth marry DANIEL Delp or DAVID Delp. I believe David. There has been discussion about Elizabeth dying in childbirth in 1813 following her 1812 marriage. My problem with this is she is mentioned in her Father's 1820 will where he states I have given my daughter, Elizabeth, her inheritance and desire she have no more. The implication is she was alive at that time and her Father was perhaps not happy with her.

DNA Testing
Hello Carole,
I hope you don't mind me trying to answer some of your questions about DNA testing.
I am not connected to any DNA testing company.

I am going to give you some links for you to check out.
The first is the Taylor DNA project.

You can click on to the link label YDNA Results
classic view.

The link to the Geer YDNA Project.

Family Tree DNA site.

As you can see you don't have to worry about trying to try to read your results by yourself.

Y-DNA testing of my Parker line proved for the most part that I had the correct information for my line in USA. My England Parker research was a total wash out and I am waiting for Parker male from England to match with my DNA Group.
Yes you may find as I did that you have some wrong information in your file but my question to you is "are you looking for the correct information?? I suspect you are for you said that you have proven your lineage with a good paper trail and so look at y-DNA results as another tool you can use to also prove your work.
I am for yDNA testing 110% as it works
Feel free to ask me any question.

RE: Hathaway
You know, we have 'met' many wonderful people here but there are some really nasty people who have attacked us as well. Not to mention things like someone telling us 'thank you' for putting in a memorial for a family member and asking for a transfer. As soon as we transferred it they deleted it and put in a new one of their own. Just mean spirited stuff like that. Hang in there, you are taking the high road and we appreciated being related to someone like that!
