Bio Photo Working on civil war history and geneology Benner,Fraelick,DiNunzio,& Mastromatteo surnames.
I have always had an interest in History. My GG-Grandfather Pvt. Amos M. Benner (FAG #52690427) served in Co.D 2nd Pennsylvania Volunteer Cavalry. Mustered in eastern Lancaster Co. Pa. They were known locally as the "Pequea Dragoons". I have been researching this unit (Co.D 2nd PVC) for years. Hope to soon put up a web-site for decendants and researchers. Please contact me if you have any interest, information, or corrections.Thanks!

If I have created a Memorial for your ancestors, friends, or family members. I will be happy to transfer to you. Unless the person is on my direct line.

RE: John & Mary Ann Fager
Thank you so much for solving the mystery for the Fager deaths. I am quite sure you are correct that Anthony Frances is their son, and that he was born and died in Lancaster, Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Census and city directories show the family lived there during his lifetime. I would appreciate you linking him to his parents.

My husband is not closely related. John Fager is the maternal grandfather of wife of 1st cousin of husband of grand niece of husband of 1st cousin 4x removed of my husband. I am happy that you have become a contributor for the memorials for this family.

George H. Benedict

Yes, I am a descendent of George H. Benedict and his wife Susan Markham of Harrison County, Iowa. However, I have no evidence he served in the Civil War and if he had, it likely would have been from New York.
Perhaps your George was a cousin of mine? Have you by chance traced his lineage to Fairfield County, Connecticut?

RE: Hooley/ Burger
Hi Glenn,
Everybody in that Burger/Hooley plot is my family, actually. I wouldn't want to bombard you with edit requests, so you can transfer them over to me if you like. I still have a lot of discovering left to do for that branch of my family tree.
Thanks so much, again.

RE: John W. Hooley
Hi Glenn,
Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph my family plot. John W. Hooley is a close relative of mine and I had no idea where he was buried except for a hunch. Your photo answers a lot of questions! Thanks again! -AJE

RE: John & Margaret H.
Thank you Glenn. John was a barber, According to my mom he could not fit "Himmelsbach" on the barber sign so he shortened his name to "Himelsbach" that is how it became spelled with one 'm'. In my research with this side of the family I have found it spelled both ways, again it was shortened to fit on lines and things. Thought you might find that fact interesting. G

Thank you Glenn. Albert and Mary are my great grandparents. As I find more information on them I will add it and continue to grow my family tree.
