Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been climbing around
on my Family Tree, swinging
on it's branches, and digging
at it's roots for over
30 years, (since 1975).
I have been widowed since 1991, retired in 2005.
I LOVE Find-A-Grave. It is a wonderful
asset to the genealogy world.
If I've created a record that someone
needs to correct, update or add
information, please let me know and
I'll be glad to add your information
for you;... or if the person is your
direct family member, and you would
like to have me transfer "ownership"
of that memorial page to you, please
let me know...If that person is not
related to me and they are directly
related to you; I will be glad to
transfer their memorial to you.
However, I want to note:
Nearly all of the memorials that I
have created are connected to my
family tree and are a result of a
lot of years hard work and research.

To all the members who have been
kind enough to transfer "ownership"
of my family members to me....
Find A Grave is one of my favorite
It has given me a place that I can
remember my loved ones and honor
their memory.

If you have time, please leave a flower
for my dear husband, Roy E. Hughes.

Thank You

Asa M Foster
LoRetta, thank you for creating a memorial for Asa M Foster. He was killed at Frayser's Farm, a battle in which his brother Richard lost his right arm. Richard is my husband's great-great grandfather.

Enoch DeWitt DuBose #139764829
Hi Loretta,

Kelly K (#47222682) thought you might be able to help with Enoch DuBose. Does his name ring a bell? I'm wondering if you have or can help me find more information about him. I'm writing about the unit he served in during WWII and would like to learn more about him. Do you know any living relatives? Please email me at your earliest convenience?

Thank you!

George Heilig
The George Heilig that died in 1845 was NOT named George Michael. His younger brother born in 1798 was a twin and they were named George Michael and George Henry. In accord with PA German naming customs as Kerchner explains in his article, George could not have been the George Michael that was his younger brother but most likely was Johann George, the same name as his paternal grandfather. If the name had been George Michael it would very likely have been carved on his tombstone as was his father's name George Michael. This is futher proved by court documents that refer to George Michael JR and pins down the referenced land to that that Michael Heilig inherited. The Germans at this time frame called sons and daughters by their middle names as Kerchner explains. The father of these two men was George Michael who wrote his will in German and the land parcelled out to George is different from that parcelled out to Henry (George Henry) and to Michael whom the courts called George Michael Jr. There is a reference to George Michael having entered the name George Michael for his in the family Bible which seems no one can produce but one thing is certain in the Organ Lutheran Church records the baptisms of both twins George Michael and George Henry are recorded in 1798 and following then just like in the father's will the sons are referred to by their middle names: George, Michael, and Henry in keeping with the then current German custom.

Sallie Baggett
LoRetta, after posting the previous inquiry on William Harrison Baggett, I found a death certificate for him that confirms that he is buried in Cade Cemetery, same as Sallie, so I'm going to make a Find A Grave page for him.
