Mike & Brubakers
I will probably see Mike on Friday so I will be sure to tell him you said hi.

I have a lot of Brubakers in my tree so we probably are related somehow! My Brubakers probably started with the Wilts - I have a ton of them.

Harvey L Pletcher
Please remove the link to Harvey Leander Pletcher's page from Barbara Etta Swab Pletcher's page since he is not one of her children.

Apparently, there are two Andrew Jackson Pletchers and the one who is the father to Harvey Leander Pletcher is the one who was married to Mary Jane Mikel.

Our Great Grandfather Andrew Jackson Pletcher was born in Ohio, 20 Aug 1848 and died in Harlingen, Texas, 22 May 1925 and was married to Barbara Etta Swab (he never remarried).

Here are the names of Barbara Etta Swab and Andrew Jackson Pletcher's children:

Emma Jane Pletcher Weeks
George H Pletcher
Mary Margaret Pletcher Ballinger
Jacob Samuel Pletcher
Ida Elizabeth Pletcher Moomey
Infant (it is our understanding that Barbara Etta and baby died during child birth)

We are not aware of any other children and if you find something contrary to our information, please let me know.

Barbara Etta Swab Pletcher
Please remove the link from Barbara Etta Swab Pletcher's page to Andrew J Pletcher's headstone page.

Barbara Etta Swab and Andrew Jackson Pletcher are my Great Grandparents. Their daughter is my Grandmother (Mary Margaret Pletcher Ballinger) and our Great Grandfather was never married to Mary. He was born in Ohio, 20 Aug 1848, and he died in Harlingen, Texas, 22 May, 1925. His death certificate shows his father as Christian Pletcher and his mother as Margaret Hunsicker. His body was removed to Toledo, Ohio and one of his daughters (Emma Pletcher Weeks we believe) made the arrangements for his burial.

Thanks for your assistance and should you find where our Andrew Jackson Pletcher is buried in Ohio (we believe him to be buried in Bechtel Cemetery but can't find a record on Findagrave confirming that information), please let us know.

Bowers, Pletcher, Burkhart
Planning another trip back again next September, now that I have your good phone number, and am planning to stay longer, will try and contact you.

Didn't have enough time to finish all that I wanted to do.

I am sending the actual articles to you.I don't know what will happen to my yearbooks when I am gone.I would rather the articles be with Peggy's family.I do my own family history.The articles belong to you! I will get them in the mail tomorrow! Peggy was very special,she always reminded me of a "pixie". Tiny, a "cutie petootie" and always a smile.

Peggy Jo
Hi,I was a classmate of Peggy's in Ken West. I remember she disappeared in May of 1972.I also remember being notified the police had found her body in June(my birthday). She was a a lovely pal in school and always shared a smile or joke with her classmates. I still remember her to this day.
I do know she is buried in White Chapel in Amherst,NY. Just wanted to pass that on to you.I still have the news articles in my yearbooks. I will never forget her.
