My Previous Request & Edit Suggestion
Hi Diane,

Ignore my above request & suggestion. This is not the correct Martin B. Witmer I'm currently researching. I've not been able to connect this Martin to Eli & Catherine Baer Witmer.

So far as I know this is their son Martin # 75640450.

If I come up with another scenario I'll be in touch. My apologies for any confusion.

Hi Diane,

I'd like your permission to use your headstone photos in an Ancestry family tree. Cite/Source is always given to the original photographer.

Thanks so much,

RE: James Edward Lang
Yes, I am related. He is my great grand uncle: James Edward Lang # 119808646 How thoughtful of you to offer transferring his memorial. In fact, I would be very happy & honored if you would transfer his memorial to me. I would take good care of it & continue making connections & adding information.

Thank-you for creating his beautiful memorial & doing all the work you do for so many people.

Bless you & Thank-you!

Re: James Edward Lang
I have made a mistake on his birthplace.

There are 2 Red Oak, Iowa's. They are 4 hours apart. One in Montgomery County, Iowa and the other in Cedar County, Iowa. He was born in Cedar County, but Red Oak does not appear in the drop down menu, so I have sent another edit with just Cedar County, Iowa. Sorry for my mistake.

Thank-you & bless you

Sarah Randall Langford
Hi Diane,
There is an interesting story behind her maiden name. I will change it because it is spelled that way on her death record. When we went down to Pulaski Co. Kentucky we met a man in the cemetery whose relatives have lived there most of his life. He asked me who I was looking for. I said Randolph he said spelled Randolph or Randall. I said the former, he told me good because if it was spelled Randall then that part of the family were mule stealers.
They had to change the spelling of their last name so they would not get caught.
So half of my relations have a spelling of Randolph which is the correct spelling and the other part spells it Randall. It makes genealogy a challenge!
