Eva Boyer Heckert Fetterhoff
Agreed! My cousin tree is a mix of everything Mennonite. . . ALL OF THEM and over and over again. Explains some rare cancers we have. In fact, if it weren't for the introduction of the Fetterhoffs, I'm sure all would be worse for wear!

Yes, PLEASE research Eva. Of course 42 isn't the oldest you can be to have a child, but it's just too weird to have your husband's mother be your sister. Wouldn't that mean her husband is her nephew? Do you hear that song playing? "I am my own grandpa?" Please keep in touch!

Can we swap trees?

Emma S. Saussaman, nee Bowman, is the daughter of John F. Bowman and his second wife, Mary Ann Lentz Bowman. Would it be possible to maintain her memorial and add information? Thank You.

Homer Enders #50397230
Hi Russ,

I sell identified antique photos in my eBay store. Today I've listed photos from an old album that likely belonged to descendants of Hezekiah and Amanda Fitting Matter.

I research the photos in and and request edits in findagrave when I can link families or provide additional info.

One of the photos in the album is Sarah Jane Matter Enders Fetterhoff memorial #28053076. I sent an edit request to link her to her son Homer and it was rejected. Just wanted to let you take a look at my research so you will understand my request.
Here's a link to Sarah's photo on eBay

In the 1880 census record for Isaiah Matter, you will see his daughter Sarah Enders living with him, and his grandson Homer D Enders. For some reason, Homer's name doesn't get included when I print that census record, but he is in that household on the original census.

I found an online family tree that shows his father was Samuel Enders, but no supporting documents.

Anyway, it's your decision about linking him to his mother.

Here's a link to all the photos from that album if you'd like to see them

Enders Family Info

I am a family member of the Enders line. I recently saw the Enders Family book that was published. I have some updated information on my family line to add to it. Are you the right person to provide that information?

Looked @ Willis' father's link, guess his name was "Carvin" after all. However, I also looked at a family tree on Ancestry and noticed that they had his name listed as "Carvin Cooper Lebo"???

Just thought I would mention it.

Re: Willis Lebo

It also appears that Willis' father's name is "Garvin" rather than "Carvin".

Re: Verna M. (Rowe) Lebo
Hi Russ,

Found Willis & Verna Lebo's marriage
License on Ancestry, and added a copy to her memorial. Her parents, Clinton & Katie Rowe are also buried in that cemetery, and are also your memorials.

Kathy 😊
