I have been interested in genealogy since 2001. I have added both family and non family members. Any additions or corrections are greatly appreciated. I have also added people that had both positive and negative contributions to society as well as some that were just caught up in events that they couldn't control. I feel we can learn from their mistakes as well as their accomplishments. Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.- George Santayana
I like to do corrections so send me what you have, preferably using the edit tab located on the upper right hand corner of each memorial. I want the memorials to be as complete as possible. Due to time constraints I don't always reply but I will do them within the 30 day period.
Note: As of 2/23/15 I should be all caught up with corrections. Please resubmit any that I may have missed updating the memorial.
RE: Detweiler memorials So, Rebecca Bowen was your great grandmother? My tree "grows" from Peter Charles Detweiler and Luzetta Rebecca Horn. How cool is that?! Their daughter, Lulu Horn, married James Goethe. Their son, James Hamilton Goethe, was my father (he died in 1991)~ From whom are you descended?
Thank you so very much for letting me know! This is so cool . . . you've made my day! I'm not great determining relationships, but I think we're second cousins (?) since we share the same great grandfather. Because we have different great grandmothers, I'm sure there's some terminology to denote that. I've seen your name many, many times as a contributor, but would never have dreamed that you were part of my family
RE: Memorial # 144010256 Thanks for the quick reply. Yes, it is abandoned, and I can't get the former owners to talk with me. I have researched the Williams case for over 30 years, and have recently discovered new evidence that I hope will exonerate him. I've also determined the identity of the person who almost certainly committed the crime.
How did you end up with her memorials? I had known her for 25 years and talked to her a weekly basis after Eugene her husband passed away in 1998. You said family member, okay my grandfather and Eugene were cousins. How are you related?
