|Sandie Jane Martin||James H. (Hill) George|
I can not tell you how happy I am that you took a picture of the grave yard that my Great Uncle James Hill George is buried in. My grandmother Anne Brigstocke George was the last of 10 children born in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania in 1885. In the 1900 census her mother and father were listed as having 10 children with 6 still living. I have tried over the years to find two that I didn't have information regarding. My grandmother told my mother that there were several James Hill George's in that family one being her father. Her brother just before her 1883 was also James Hill George. I couldn't believe my eyes when on the bottom of the page was listed James H. George born 1882 and dying the same year. This is one of the James H. George's she was talking about. The family came to the US in 1879 from Wales with other children but I always thought a boy child was born and died in Wales. Sorry for the long history, but I wanted to know if you would be kind enough to send me an actual picture of the gravesite if it wasn't to much trouble. My mother will be 97 in November and I would love to give it to her for her birthday. Now I need to find one more and I will be finished with research on her mother's siblings. Thank you kindly, Sandie Jane Martin

Thank you for posting such great information about Brice S. Blair, he is my 3rd great grandfather. I was wondering where you found the information for him as I would also like to read about the Davenport too. Also may I have your permission to repost his picture to my ancestry.com family tree.
Thank you again for all the work you have done on Brice.
I am doing family research and your efforts have made linking family members so much easier. Thank you so much!

|LESLIE S ROBERTS||Christopher Wren, cont.|
It's me again. I forgot to mention that my father's family, including Jenny Wren Roberts, are also buried in Edgehill Cemetery. I have a few photos I could add, if appropriate.
|LESLIE S ROBERTS||Christopher Wren|
My name is Leslie Roberts. My grandmother was Jennie Wren Roberts.
I believe that the gravesite you have pictured for Christopher Wren is her father, my great grandfather. I believe this because I recently came into possession of a book written by him. It is about Indian artifacts, and references his membership/leadership in the archeology/.... Society, and shows him as an author and historian.
Do you have any other information about him? If so, I would love to know what you have. In particular, I am interested in who his parents were and who his children were.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
Sincerely, Leslie Roberts
Hi Bob, You mentioned that your wife was a cousin of Edwin Jenkins. His mother Elizabeth's father was my grand mother Edith Powell Gansel brother. I used to play at their home, I believe on Shawnee Ave., when I was very young. There is a big age gap between me and most of my cousin's because I was a change of life baby. My brother Harry Powell is 14 years older, and the sister who passed before the age of three would have been 19 years older. Some times I get confused about my relation to these people because I was always taught to call any one older than I aunt or uncle, but they were really cousins. My e-mail address is email@example.com if you would like to let me know your wife's connection. Thanks again for transferring the memorials. Sharon

|Cinda Six||RE: Hoffman stone|
You are very welcome!
|LMD||RE: Lena Jaikes Osmund|
Lena is the daughter of my father's 1st cousin, Sophie Grigger Jaikes. Which leads me to asking you if you are related. I do not wish to overstep my bounds. And leads to me to another question, do you know where her gravesite is located? I have been to Edgehill Cemetery many times, although I live 2 hrs away, and i know where her parents are buried, but I have not found any of the younger generation.
