Bio and Links
Family historian, micropaleontologist, hiker, retired teacher among other things. Thanks to all who posted memorials and photos useful in my family tree, and made memorials of closer family members. I do not "own" my memorials and photos, your non-commercial use for family purposes is fine with me, credit is appreciated in your trees, histories and websites. Prohibited: commercial use unless you have my written permission.

Now working on Strausbaugh family tree, including Ory family in Louisiana. NEED HELP: looking for parents of Lucy Ann Elizabeth Strausbaugh, wife of Melchior Sachs. Married 1849 March 16 at Gettysburg at an unknown Reformed Church. Born in or near Gettsyburg, PA about 1829. NOT Lucy Ann the daughter of George Strausbaugh and Elizabeth Bittinger, that Lucy Ann married Joseph Warner and stayed in Pennsylvania instead of moving to Illinois. Anyone knowing her parents names please contact me.

Thanks for the correction! I've also linked her to her parents.

RE: Lillie
Yup. That's what's left of her marker. Right next to her husband. His marker has toppled over.

Hi Chris,

My name is Carol Latham. I see where you have commented on several of my families sites. Are we related?

RE: Photo thanks

He was one of the more difficult ones to find, since it was so hard to read. I didn't have my usual "grave diggin'" tools with me since I'm on vacation in the area. But the nun in the office there is so helpful, she gave me archival maps to find the 16 graves I was hunting. Had it not been for the map, I would have likely missed it. I spent a good two hours out there, and it was hot, sweaty and wonderful.

RE: Thanks
You are very welcome, I did take photos of all Swan headstones that day in the cemetery so you might find more links. If you need any other information just ask, I'm glad to help.

Eliza Gleason #124453535
I am transfering Eliza Gleason to you since I saw a note on her memorial that she is your cousin. I got a correction from history seeker #47049540 as follows "she was the sister of Alexander Cameron not her father. Look here

Hope you can fix the memorial so correct parents are linked. There is no way to contact historyseeker who sent me the avove message. Can you please correct the parents names and put a note in the bio that you are sure of the correct parents. Jean Colson sent me an edit for the parents that I linked to Eliza which may not be correct. If not correct remove them.
Thank you,
