Sarah McBride Bowman
Hello Penny,
Do you have any information on Thomas and Sarah (McBride) Bowman. Sarah McBride Bowman was my great-grandmother's sister who I thought stayed in Ireland. Her parents and siblings who immigrated to Wilmington, Delaware are buried in Wilmington, mostly in Mt Salem.
Thank You,
Jim McMillan

RE: Stephen Cole
Hi Penny,

Yes, Martha Hunter was the wife of Stephen Cole, but I see the memorial is gone now. I'm guessing merged with another that existed.

Thank you again for your work and help,

RE: Stephen Cole
Dear Penny,

Thank you for taking the time to answer. I'm assuming you saw my later message that I figured that out. I'm new on Find A Grave and learning my way. I have sent the mgr of James' memorial a note explaining that Stephen is the brother and then submitted your memorial as the father.

This family has gotten tangled on Find A Grave. It's important to me because it is my direct line.

Thanks, Christie

James William Wilson memorial problem
I just wanted you to know I have written to try to get the memorial fixed for James William Wilson. The memorial that is at Hopewell for James T Wilson should be corrected as the stone is for James William Wilson. The James T Wilson that was in Snow's Battery lived until 1910. The dates on the James T Wilson memorial are for James William Wilson. Anyway, I see you added another for James W Wilson - are you related?? He is my husband's so many great-uncles through JWW's wife.

Annie Lane Elliott
I found images of her christening and death records that show her name was Annie Love Elliott and not Annie Lane Elliott.

Geoffery Smith Garstin
Thank you for the volunteer work you do for us. There are so many of us who can't go where you have found families.

Geoffrey Smith Garstin was the son of Reginald Howard Garstin smith and Johanna Pfeiffer. Johanna took Geoffery to New York for his university studies. The name GARSTIN was a name worthy of consideration in India. Reginald's grandfather was an engineer and General Edward Garstin . Before General Garstin married he had a dalliance with a " local woman. The birth and baptizment show no mother, only the General, and the infant's name, Charles Garstin Smith. When the General married he and his wife took their DAUGHTER to England but, not Charles. We believe Charles was raised by a Smith family, otherwise, we have no explanation for his surname SMITH. After the family of Charles and Mathilde Smith emigrated to America, Reginald Howard Garstin Smith Married #1 Johanna Pfeiffer/Pferffer; the couple had 2 children, Charles Garstin Smith and Howard Pfeiffer/Pferffer who died before his maturity. Reginald married #2 Grace Jane Brantingham. It is our collective opinion that Johanna told GEOFFREY to switch his given name because it sounded more established than SMITH! I wonder if Johanna knew this back story to the name Garstin?!?! Geoffrey left several millions of dollars to the University of Delaware; his wife was Ann Nields.

Thank you again,
