I am the Fifth Great Granddaughter of Christian Otto Schultz, of Rhinebeck, NY, through his son LT Peter Schultz. Peter was one of eight brothers who were revolutionary war patriots. I'm working on the burial sites and vital statistics of all of Christian Otto and Christiana's descendents.

My paternal Grandmother was a King, and what a lot of Kings there were and are! They were boilermakers and laborers and other hard-working folks from Bath, Maine. The families were large, most had little money, and the stories are sometimes hard to take. Infants died more often than in the wealthier side of the family, women married and died young, children like little Hattie King and her two sisters didn't always get to stay with their Mom and Dad. The Kings that survived were sometimes badly damaged by their experiences. Theirs is a story of generations who found the strength to overcome hardship and tragedy. It's not a pretty story, not always an honorable one, but it's honest and has plenty of moments of triumph, joy and even hope.

On my Mother's side, we have Burns and Gerfin, two names that lead back to Canada, PA, Maine and MA. Behind the Burns, we find the early settlers of Union, Maine, including Phillip Robbins who's home now houses the Union Historical Society, the Cummings, with a few courageous fellows who headed off to Lexington, and before them, William and Johanna Towne, my 9G Grandparents, who's three daughters were accused during the hysteria of the Salem witch trials. Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Esty, were hung. Sarah was accused after she protested her sister's innocence and spent nearly a year in jail. Her case was finally dismissed by Grand Jury.

RE: Harriet King 96795671
Glad it helped. I would imagine there are a few "switches" within those two cemeteries, since they are relatively close together.

Harriet King 96795671
While taking photos in the Maple Grove Cemetery in Bath, ME, I came across a stone for Harriet with her first husband and some of her children. I can see by the article you have on her memorial that she was listed as buried in Oak Grove Cemetery. These two cemeteries are related, so I am wondering if there was some sort of mix-up, or maybe she has a stone in both cemeteries. I will upload the photo to your memorial. If you are related, maybe you can contact the office (which handles both cemeteries) and deduce which is actually correct.
Good luck.

Louise TenBroeck and Vernon Cronk

I see you have a photo request for Louise and Vernon. Vernon was my Great Uncle and I have a picture of their stone which I will upload.

I assume you are on the TenBroeck side. Little known is Vernon was married prior to Louise and also had two children which I recently reconnected with the daughter of one of them. It's an amazing but long story.

All the best,

ps: My mom's maiden name is Cronk

Hi Chris

As I recall this death is listed in the cemetery interment records but I do not think there is any stone.

I'll submit GPS info when I see/find the stone, we do know it's by a road! I must have taken the photo before I had my GPS camera

Eliza Jane King Hawkes
Eliza Jane is my Grandfather Frank King Hawkes mother the only thing I have which I don,t know if it is true is that Eliza Jane was married to William Hawkes and they had 6 Children Thomas J,Helen I,My Grandfather Frank King,William H Jr,Celelia and Joseph T.I never did get to know my grandfather because he died in 1946 and I was born in 1948 so my mother Frank's daughter was only 16 when he died.By looking at things on the computer I found a Eliza Hane King Hawkes that died in 1902 by drowning in the Kennebec River.But I can not find any obit on her or any other information on her anything that you would have on this King family would be great.Edith Kelly Bond E-mail address is

Jennie Darling- Laurel Grove
I did not see Jennie Darling's grave.I have a picture of what I am assuming would be her daughters grave if you are interested. I also have a picture of Hala B darling's grave. Those two are on the same stone as Horace Schultz.
