RE: Paul Ketchem Shelley # 121121113
The original memorial created for his mother, Annie Williams Hand Shelley, was incorrect. Annie did not die in 1924; she died in 1954(, perhaps a transcription error on the memorial. After the death of Paul's father, Annie Shelley married Judson George, in ~1906. Paul is in the household with Judson and Annie, and John Shelley, in the 1920 census. Here is the link, if you have access to Ancestry:

I have notified the person who set up the errant memorial.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for all your entries.
Writing to let you know that Mary Eckenrode Blaine # 168639038 is a duplicate to # 37331319. With you researching Donahue, you know how many different spellings there can be. Thank you again. Lois (Eckenrode) Stafford

I got the dates from:

These are not sourced but cross checking with other people mentioned it all seems to fit.

Also: There are Quaker records for Bucks county on ancestry dot com that name all the children of David and Phoebe Roberts. Nathan is included there with his DOB.

William Hunter
Thanks for the reference, Tom. I'm also on Ancestry, so downloaded the record myself.

FYI, Hunter's wife was a sister of my wife's third-great grandmother, Margaret Davis Cornog.

William Hunter (1784-1853) @ Newtown Square Friends Burial Ground
Tom, since there is, apparently, no tombstone, can you tell me what source recorded that William Hunter is, in fact, buried at this burial ground?

Thanks so much for notifying me of the duplication for Mary Honcrusti Good Hauenstein Snyder's memorial. I deleted the one I had built.

The family wanted this memorial listed as the burial ground is under different names.
