duplicate John Msuck memorial
Thanks for the heads-up. I didn't realize there was a duplication. I feel my memorial is more complete and John Mauck is an ancestor of mine; so I think I'll leave it up. I would notify the other poster, but it says she/he is inactive. Thanks for your email. There are more duplicates than I would have thought. Wish something could be done by the administrators. Geri

RE: Pleasant A Hall
Hi SMG, You wrote to me that Tolitha (Dolitha) Hall Shelton Haire Riddle was Pleasant Alexander Hall's aunt. I just wanted to defend her as his sister with all the research I've done. Actually, Pleasant should be Pleasant Hensley. His father was Wesley Hensley (1831-1992). Pleasant decided to take his grandmother's maiden name Hall. His mother was Nancy Hall Shelton who took her ste-mother's maiden name Riddle. It's all so complicated. Tolitha's grave can be linked to Pleasant as his sibling. I can give you her Find A Grave # if you are interested. Cheri

Pleasant A Hall
Hello again, I looked over my notes. I'm afraid this will get a bit complicated. I spent a long time looking for Tolitha (Dolitha) Hall Riddle Haire (1849-1913). In 1880 she and her husband took in my young g-grandmother. That is why I wanted to find out more about Tolitha.

In Shelton Laurel the children many times took their mother's maiden name to keep things straight. I started in 1880 and worked from there. Tolitha is Pleasant's sister along with their brother Ephraim Hall Shelton(1853-1939)and sister Lotty (probably Charlotte)(1851).

Pleasant's mother (and the other children's) was Nancy Hall Shelton (1832). She married Wesley Hensley. Nancy Hall Shelton's mother was Rhoda Hall who married Alexander Shelton. Nancy is listed in the 1850 census with Alexander and her step-mother Nancy Riddle. Nancy Hall Shelton eventually deleted Hall and took her step-mother's name Riddle because Nancy Riddle helped raise her and her babies. I think Rhoda Hall was not involved much with the family.

Tolitha, (Dolitha)is listed with Nancy Hall Shelton in 1850. Both of them were living with Nancy's father Alexander Shelton.

In the 1860 census Nancy (Hall Shelton) Riddle is listed with Wesley Hensley, Tolitha and Pleasant.

In 1870 Tolitha has become Tolitha Hall and living next to Alexander Shelton. Pleasant is around the corner with John Johnson. Lotty and Ephraim Hall are living with their father Wesley Hensley and Alexander Shelton.

In 1880 Tolitha is married (Haire). Pleasant is married to Catherine. They have 4 children; Asariah, Nancy, Henry and Telitha (1883). We don't see Telitha until 1900.

In 1910 my g-grandmother is neighbors with Tolitha in the Greeneville area. I looked around and found Pleasant with Rachel near her. I don't know much about Rachel.

RE: Caroline Pemberton
Thanks! I am glad that my pointing that out did not offend you. We all do things like that.
I have not had any response from the lookup people as to the death notice for "Richard" Pemberton, but I am almost sure it must be for Clay.
By the way, do you know if Caroline's tombstone was erected in the past several years? It apparently was not there in the late 1970s, forty years after her death, when an updated transcription of the stones was made. In the late 1960s there was an inquiry from a relative to the Lawrence County Historical Society about Frank having died and been buried at Mt. Vernon. At that time it was thought he might have been buried at the City Cemetery rather than Williams. Presumably someone found Caroline's obituary later which mentioned Williams Cem. so the family knew to put the tombstone at Williams.

Masters family
i just wanted to thank you for all the work you have put into Find A Grave and for all of the family members of mine that you have found and created. Isiah Masters was my great grandfather and I used to hear stories galore about him. I knew he was the one that had lost his arm in the Civil grandmother said it was at Gettysburg....was never certain, but was very happy to see you have it on his memorial. Plus all of the others....thank you so very much!

Mary Jane Wellington
Hi, I just returned from Kansas City where I attended my Aunt Janie's (Mary Jane) funeral. Going thru all of her old photos etc. got me going on my family tree again. I was happy to find this web site and more then that, that you had already posted this most beautiful tribute to her. Thank you for taking the time to do the work you do, I turly appreciate it. Once I get a little better at this, I'll be able to add some photos too.

RE: Wolcott
It is on the north side of Hutton and on the East side of the abandoned 99th street. Address is 9820 Hutton Rd. Property measurement from the county GIS shows it to be about 175' X 235'. Just under one acre in size.

RE: Andreas Kapp at Schaefferstown Cemetery
Type PASSER on your browser which will take you to the website, then click on Joseph Hiester Chapter which will take you to the Berks/Lebanon section. Search for Anthony Kapp and look for the church listing which will give Lutheran reformed Cemetery. Then search under "cemetery listings" which will give the location as Schaefferstown. That is how I came to enter him there under Schaefferstown cemetery. I can't verify that this is absolute correct. I do know that all burials they have listed under that cemetery are listed as "unknown", meaning they don't know the actual grave location.
Another scenario: I found today that I also had a Anthony Kapp, b. 3/16/1750, buried at the Lutherische and Reformed cemetery. He was listed as Capp in the record of Passer. Both men are given as sons of Michael and Margaretha Frey. The Lutherische cemetery is in Palmyra and is supposed to be defunct. I don't know the proximity of Palmyra and Schaefferstown.
Bottom line: I think all the Passer listings for Schaefferstown should be under Lutherische. If I were you I would invest in obtaining the records for that cemetery which should be available on line. If you sort this out, let me know so I can place them in the correct cemetery.
