death of My Grandmother
Mabel Gladys Troutman
Holzbauer in January 1989
in San Diego, CA and My Dad,
John G. O'Connell, Jr., (1922-
2002), who had been researching
his O'Connell lineage quietly for
years, ask me to go with him to
the nearby LDS/Family History
Library near Greenville, SC I'm working
these family lines: O'Connell-Holzbauer, Barwin/Behrwindt/Schweinfest-Jones,
Holzbauer-Troutman, Troutman-Butler
(as of the Eli Ambrose Troutman-Mary
Butler Oliver Troutman marriage (1852
-1894), his 4th marriage;(have been
working the other marriages and the descendants from the other Eli Ambrose Troutman children.); O'Connell-Foster,
Jones-Smith, Holzbauer-Scherner,

RE: Family linkage of Troutman

I don't mind making the memorials for Hiram's parents, but do you happen to know where they were buried? I did not find pages for them on Find-A-Grave when I looked. I'm afraid I know nothing about Hiram Troutman or his family other than what you've told me. I happened to photograph his headstone one morning while photographing a difficult-to-access ridge in this particular cemetery, and I try to photograph the soldiers headstones if they are not already listed here. Is he an ancestor of yours? I'll be happy to transfer his memorial to you.

RE: Joseph Booker Memorial
You're quite welcome. I will try to remember to go back in early January (or whenever the new mausoleum is complete) and take a picture of the plaque.

I don't know if the family has ordered a medallion for his plaque.

The Lynches
I've walked the cemetery at Belmont Abbey, filling in what had not been put up on Find a Grave. There was no Lynch grave stones to the best of my knowledge.

Do you know if there were stones placed on their grave sites? If I've inadvertently missed them, I can go back since Belmont Abbey is close to where I live.

I looked on Newspaper Archive to see if I could locate her obituary. No success.

There might be someone on the forums who has access to other databases who might be able to find it.

Thank you for sponsoring her memorial.

Do you have a connection to her and/or know something more about her?

RE: Homer H Spencer (42006932)
Thanks John.You an transfer maintenance to me if you want. I doubt Otis is related since Homer's ancestors left CT before the Rev War to settle in Dutchess Co NY. They moved to Bradford Co PA just after the Civil War.

RE: Homer H Spencer (42006932)
John, I'm not sure what you mean about an Otis Spencer. Henry Homer Spencer (also called Homer H Spencer) was my mother's grandfather. He is buried in the Monroeton, Bradford County, Pennsylvania cemetery. I know this because I just had his monument reset on the base after falling down. The connections I sent you are all my relatives. Can you clarify your response?
