Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have lived in Abilene, Texas all my life. My husband and I have been researching our ancestral families since the late 1960s. Travels have taken us to several southern states, mainly South Carolina and Mississippi, and also to Pennsylvania and Ohio where my husband's paternal lines lived. My family history goes back to Virginia, South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi and Texas. Major surnames are Daniel (my surname),Robbins, Burnett, Stuckey, Cox, Flanagan, Hearrald (Harrall/Harrald). My husband's major ancestors are Boggs, Lopeman (both Pennsylvania and Ohio), Horton and Williamson (North Carolina, Alabama and Texas).

RE: William Boggs 1813-1876
Your information will be absolutely secure. Even my tree is listed as private, but I will send you an invite so you can look at anything you want. There is quite a bit of information about the Boggs/Ash and many other families online in Butler County,Pennsylvania. I actually found most of my information about 10 years ago when I first started my genealogy. After a couple of years, I took a long break. I had kind of hit a wall when it came to finding information. Late last year, I renewed my account and was surprised to find so much more information had been added. Years back I found a couple of books on the history of Butler County that a genealogical society had transcribed and made available online. The amount of information on the families was unbelievable.
As for the DNA, I thought it would be interesting to try out. I was a bit surprised at the results. Many of my ancestors are from the U.K. However, the DNA test showed European(which covers my German line) and a large percentage was Scandinavian. Not even a small percentage showed up as British Isle. However, after reading an explanation of it, it made sense. Over the millennium, the area know as Great Britain has been conquered by multiple nations. This has brought in many outside bloodlines. Obviously one of them was the vikings, which would account for Scandinavian bloodline. It's something to think about. And who knows, you may find a distant relative you didn't know of.
We'll keep in touch. Thanks for the screen name.

Would it be an imposition if I asked your screen name on Ancestry? I would love to send you an invite and possible you could send me one. I would love to compare data. Have you done the DNA test?

RE: William Boggs 1813-1876
Well I am glad to here you have a photo available. After I sent you the message about removing the photo, I went to the entry for the cemetery and found about 8 photo requests for that cemetery. One of them I believe was about 3 years old. Doesn't look like anyone in that area is on
Thank you for looking.

RE: William Boggs 1813-1876
Okay, I'll see if I can explain it well enough. I am a direct descendant of Martha Boggs(3rd great grandmother) 1808-1886. She is a half sister to William. They have different mothers. There common father was Robert Boggs 1772-1844.

Martha married Sylvester Ash.
They had Robert Ash 1837-1910.
He had Blanche Elizabeth Ash.
She married William Edgar Blocher.
They had Stanley Blocher.
He had my father Ashley Blocher.
I am Ashley's son Gregory.

William Boggs 1813-1876

I found an entry in for William Boggs at the Evans City Cemetery in Butler County, Pennsylvania. I tried to request a photo of his headstone, but when I do, I get a screen that tells there is already a photo and I can't request another. If it's not too much trouble, could you temporarily removed the photo of the cemetery sign so I can request that someone in the area take a photo of the actual headstone? After the request goes through, I would think it would be okay to go ahead and re-load the original photo.

Thank you,

Greg Blocher
P.S. I'm going to assume you are related to him. He is also my 3rd Great Grand Uncle.

It's Masonic. If you Google Masonic symbols, you should be able to find it's meaning.
I also noticed that you added a duplicate memorial for William Stuckey. I had one with the same birthdate in Bethel under W N Stuckey.
