Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy research for over 30 years. I enjoy meeting and sharing information with other genealogy "nuts" and have made several friends by doing so.

Yes, I can and will make mistakes, but if you ask me nicely, I will gladly accept your edits. Don't "edit bomb" me with dozens and dozens of edits, to simply ad "United States" or birth dates based on the tombstone info. I will not do it.

I will transfer memorials as long as they are not directly related to my family.

My main research is Delaware Township and the surrounding areas in Northumberland, Lycoming and Union county, Pa.

Sarah Leinbach
Another problem:
Find A Grave shows: Sarah Leinbach, w/o William & Catherine
15 Dec 1857 - 25 Jan 1859

The 1850 census shows Sarah, age 5, with the family, and she is absent in 1860. Perhaps the death date is correct, but not the birth date.
In other words, c.1845 - 25 Jan 1859

Leinbach girls, Stitzel Cem
Hoping you can check Mary Catherine Leinbach and sister Susannah. Back in February we found likely errors.

Thanks for adding the grave photo to Dorothy Simon's memorial. Could you add it for Charles William Simon's (148380494) memorial too?

Strickland Graves at St. John's Church Watsontown
Hi Kathi.
Thank you so much for your work at St. John's Church near Watsontown. You have listed my gg-grandparents and my ggg-grandparents who are at rest there.

You made a reference to church records. Do you have access to the St. John's Church records? (It was identified to me by the name of St. John's Delaware Run Union Church.)

Years ago, I was told that the church records for St. John's church had been flooded in the 1950's and the rest destroyed by fire in the 1960's.

I have searched unsuccessfully for 40 years to try to find Abraham Strickland's parents' names and where Abraham was born. I have also never been able to find Abraham's wife, Margaret's maiden name, her birthplace or parents' names. (I have 26 Nov 1807 for her birth date, from her tombstone years ago. Do the records show 26 Jan 1807 instead? There had been problems with vandals the summer before I found St. John's Church so I may have mistaken the month.)

Christopher Strickland was their eldest son and Susanna Derr Strickland was his wife. His younger brother, Lewis Strickland (spelled Leis on this site) died much too young.

Once again, I appreciate all you have done to help preserve and share family history for so many people. Thank you.

Mary G. Leinbach 1848-1852
Mary Catherine Leinbach, d/o William & Catherine,
appears with her family in the Northumberland County census of 1850, 1860, and 1870.

Is there a photo of the Mary G. Leinbach's gravestone, to help clarify the contradiction of the census vs. the Find A Grave assertion?
