RE: john eves sr.
We're cousins! (I'll figure it out on paper later....) thru' 2nd generation of Eves in America--1st cousins-removed. AND also cousins-removed thru' Chandlee Eves & his daughter, Annie, who married a 1st cousin Eves to send my line along another generation....we're double-related in the Eves line.

I was b. Centre Co, PA, spent teen years in Hagerstown, MD. & after college & marriage in VA, & having our 1st home & kids back in MD, we moved West w/jobs--1st to Utah (US Public Health Service, Indian Health Service) & now we live in Wildomar, CA. We've been here 30 yrs. Our boys live in San Clemente & Manhattan Beach. One just gave us our first & only, we're probably "stuck" here forever :)

I have very VIVID memories of my Great-grandfather Victor Eves. He lived 'til1966 & died while living w/my Grandmother, Bess Eves Ishler, in Bellefonte, PA I have vague memories of his wife, Lulu May Thomas Eves....who died when I was a toddler...but for sure, I could tell you about their home & Victor Eves, who lived his straight-up Quaker life right across the street from the Centre Co. Monthly Friends Meeting House in Centenniel, PA (I painted a watercolor of it one time on a visit "back home" & have it above my fireplace mantel).

RE: john eves sr.
Do you mean we're related thru' John Eves the Irish Quaker? I descend thusly:
John Eves 1726 (of DEL, & then Millville, PA) & Edith Yeatman----->
Joseph Eves 1758 and Sarah Parvin---->
John Parvin Eves 1790 & cousin, Annie Eves (dau. Chandlee Eves1797---brother to Joseph..& wife, RAchel Kester)------>
Joseph Eves 1819 (who moved to Centre Co PA)& Hannah M. Schroyer (adoptive dau./ heiress of Quakers Samuel Downing & wife Jane Wilson)------>
John P Eves and Ella Nora Biddle (2nd wife)----->
Victor Claire Eves and (2nd wife) LuLu May Thomas----->
My grandmother, Bessie F.Eves and J. Wm Ishler---->
My Dad, Donald Wm Ishler and Twila J. Harshberger--->
and me.

You are descended through John Eves the Irish Quaker's first child, Mary? If so, we are related at least double, b/c I descend through 1st cousins in the first 3 generations....and maybe even more, b/c there were multiple inter-marryings in this family. I am from Centre Co,PA, but have been in the West now since 1982, but return when able to PA to visit relatives.

RE: Masters
I do not believe that I have been fortunate enough to have run into any of Joseph Master's descendants, except my immediate family, of course.

Can you help me understand who Vyrle Smith is? She is not linked to him as a wife. I am making sure she is related to him as I would like to upload a couple headstone photos but am unable to do so without paying to sponsor him according to a message Findagrave gave me which said only 5 free photos. I have asked Andy Myers to remove one of the service marker pics as well.

Thanks for any help you can give.

RE: May Family
Hi - no not related to the May family. If you are wanting me to transfer any records that are family - just use the 'Edit' tab on those records and send me a note - I'd be happy to transfer to family.

Thanks - Linda
