The SOWLE family of Broadalbin, Fulton Co. and Venice, Oneida Co. in New York then Wayne Co., OH came to Indiana in 1837. The patriarch is Joseph Sowle who along with his wife Rachel (Allen) Sowle had a land grant for his paticipation in the War of 1812. Along with them came most of their family of fourteen children, including two sons Abel & Francis Tripp, who bought orginal land in Steuben County,Indiana.

The KOPE family came from Pennsylvania in 1822 to Cannan Township, Wayne County in Ohio. The patriarch is John Henry Kope (sometimes spelled Cupp or Kopp) and his wife Ann Magdalena "Mary" Van Han or Van Hern. Henry became a successful farmer while in Wayne County during 1822 to 1852. Henry, Mary and their son George Fredrick, daughters Elizabeth Ritter and Lucy Ann Ritter and their families came to Steuben County, Indiana in 1854 and settled in Pleasent Township on a 128 acre farm.

Armenella Hazlett Ramsey
Hello Michael,
I am Mervyn Hazlett Hall and I reside in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. I have information relating to Armenella and Francis Ramsey and I am related to the former. I believe her father to be a brother of my great great grandfather Irvine Hazlett.

I was amazed to find a photograph of her on Find my grave and really appreciate this addition to my family tree.

If you have time then please contact me.

Yours in kinship,
Mervyn.

Alpheus Sowle Photo
Hey Michael, Did you receive my e-mail message with the attached photo of Alpheus Sowle? I may have forgotten to give you my e-mail address so I'll send it with this. I am at foxy4401@hotmail.com so IF you have received my message please respect my attempt to add to your Sowle Family History. After all, I was kind enough to share the photo with you. Thanks for your response, your double cousin (Sowle & Allen). From Bill Fox of Wichita, Kansas.

Mt Zion Cemetery Pleasant Lake
Aha! I thought the problem was something of that sort. The VA has it right and the Find A Grave datbase has it wrong, in Angola. I wrote to edit@findagrave.com at the same time I wrote to you so they may yet fix it in their database. Thanks for the reassurance.

Mt Zion Cemetery
Are the Mt Zion Cmetery in Angola and Pleasant Lake the same? I am creating a memorial for a former squadron mate, CAPT John Davis Libey, USN. The VA Locator puts him in Pleasant Lake but Find A Grave has Angola as the only Mt. Zion in Steuben County. The web pages for the two towns do not claify the issue but the web page for Mt Zion in either town seems to show the same location on the map for each.
