Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband, Franklin, and I are history nuts and love grave hopping. We are also Civil War buffs. We welcome any questions.

We will also help anyone with their genealogy searches in NC (Jordan, Hooks, Tetterton, Locke, Watson, Boone, Bost Klutts/Kluttz, Lentz, Lyerly, Redwine), NH, NY (Goodbread, Stock, Bruce, Frink, Milroy, Hickok, Schuler, Honeywell, Weatherwax), MA (Bruce, Dustin, Prentice, Barnes, Locke), ME(Shibles, Prentice) and NH (Shibles, Griffin, Prentice, Dustin, Priest). That is currently where we have ancestors.

If you feel you might be related, please contact us. We are trying to fill holes in our trees and would dearly love the assistance. Please feel free to copy any photos that we have placed. (please ask those who placed pictures for their permission.)

Thanks so much.

Debbie and Franklin Jordan

RE: Our husbands' family connection
I sent an invitation to your email. The name is Steele, Jr. Maple Street Tree - Remodeling in Progress.

If you don't get to it, let me know. Occasionally people have had problems getting to my trees through the Ancestry system.

I'm planning to be at the library tomorrow if you have some other questions about Locke, Brandon, or other family names.

RE: Ann Brandon Locke
Hi Debbie. She is my husband's relative, too. We have been in contact over the last year if I remember correctly. I think I'm about to figure this out. If I'm getting this right, her mother married John Locke in Pennsylvania where they lived until he died. The mother then married John Richard Brandon who moved the family to Rowan County, NC.

Two Locke brothers--Col. Francis and Gen. Matthew Locke--married two of their step-sisters, Ann and Mary respectively. Give me some time and I will go to the library and figure this out from the info in the Locke genealogy book there. This is one of the trails I have not had time to look into recently and "connect the dots."

I've just purchased and started to add my info to a new computer and don't have it at my fingertips today. But I have, too, a bunch of Brandon genealogy for sharing. This might be easier by email. Mine is Feel free to contact me. My old email was which I think was the way we were in touch earlier.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Klotz / Kluttz / Klutz / Klutts / Clutz
Hello again im not trying to pester you but I have found another copy of memorials in the lowerstone cemetery it seems that Johann Leonard Klutz Sr. 8729704 your memorial is a copy of another memorial here Johann Leonard Klotz Sr. I aslo responded to the other poster about this it seems he has the last name correct but the middle name misspelled the original Name according to Ralph Dean in his book of the entire Kotz family (which I have a copy) and other sources indicates that the name should be Johann Leonhard Klotz Sr.
Its a on going task to have these corrected but as i progress toward capturing the entire klotz family on this site and were the Klotz/Kluttz/Klutz/Klutts/Clutts/Clutz family tree is being built. What makes it confusing is the name Klotz changed spellings as the family miragrated to other states here in north carolina it changed 3 different spellings as to when each family changed it is hard to determine but im fairly close to putting it down as to were it did change. As to this memorial and others it makes it confussing because of the name spelling and we all are posting the correct people but making copys of them by the name spelling.

Kluttz Family
Hello debbie was researching the Kluttz family history I ran across the family member Eva Trexler Kluttz 8730605 In The lowerstone Cemetery were a lot of my family are I saw that you have her as Kluttz her stone has Klutts and I noticed that someone has her also in the cemetery as klutts which makes two memorials the correct spelling of the last name should be Klutts even though it changes later in years to kluttz and it varies in spelling depending what state the folks migrated to. If you would release her to me I will correct all with both memorials and link her to the rest of the familys thanks.

RE: Crankshaw
Do not have a death date or burial for Mary Ann Rose Crankshaw. She was in Manlius, near Syracuse in 1830 census, so I expect she was NOT buried with Moses back in Schenectady. She may have been alive in 1840, but she is not in the census indexes. Possibly living with one of her children, or even remarried? Don't know. I am from Moses>Samuel>Hazael>Harvey>Clinton>me.
You are Moses>Jacob>Sarah>?

RE: Crankshaw
Do not have death date or burial place for Mary Ann Rose Crankshaw. She was in Jamesville, NY in 1830 census. Her eldest son, Samuel William Crankshaw b. 1797 was my line, brother of Jacob of the "Bruce" line. I have been to Johnstown and met some of the Crankshaws there and have worked on the history extensively. You must have seen Moses Crankshaw, husband of Mary Ann Rose, on findagrave that I put up. He died in 1813 and was buried in Schenectady. You can follow his links to Samuel>Hazael>Harvey>Clinton (my dad).

RE: Buck
You might email Find A Grave and find out why. Or you can email the edit department and have them merge the two together. You can get the email address on the main section
