Bio Photo Retired military service (USN) member now living in northeastern Thailand, near the city of Udon Thani, since 1999.
I have spent the last ten years trying to piece together the genealogy of the Dutch-American Schellinger family, starting with Jacobus Schellinger, who was born in Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, Nederland, circa 1625, and immigrated to the Dutch colony of Nieu Amsterdam circa 1650. I'm a descendant of Jacobus' youngest son, Cornelius, who removed to Cape May, NJ, circa 1690. My branch of this family then removed to Hopewell Township, Cumberland Co, NJ, circa 1810.
Having completed the majority of research on my line-of-descent, I now try to associate any "orphaned" Dutch-Schellingers with their family ancestors; this is especially true for Schellingers who were military veterans.

RE: Re YoD for Ernest L Thomas
Hi -- in Ancestry, I see him listed in the 1919 New Haven city directory, as a waiter, boarding at 15 Lewis Street. Emily J, widow of Henry, is at the same address. He and Emily J are also in the 1920 city directory, same place -- not surprising as directories generally published information gathered the previous year. Emily J is still there in 1921 but he isn't. I'd go with 1919 -- it is hard to read on the stone and whoever made the cemetery inscriptions list could easily have mistaken the final 9 for an 8 -- and then it got carried on in other compilations. Happy to help -- it's a nice, small cemetery and well maintained.

RE: Skellenger/Winn Marriage
Mike, there is no mention of Maybelle in Dr. Wilfred J. Winn's obit. Also, no mention of step-children. The only way to be sure is to find Maybelle's obit and see if Wilfred is listed as surviving spouse. Let me know if anything pans out for you. Sorry that I could not be of any help. :) Susan

Hi and thanks for your input. I'm glad you found him. If you'd like him transferred let me know. I only do this so that folks like you just might find their ancestors and fill in their histories.

Wilmington and Brandywine Cemetery: I thought about you when I saw the names! I hope it filled in a couple more blanks for you.

RE: Harry Baughn Skellenger
You are welcome. I only added the picture. I apologize for the quality of the picture, but his stone is covered and we aren't supposed to try and clean them.

RE: Sadie Skellenger Pix
Buried right next to Sadie was her mother, Albertie "Bertie" Burch Skellenger Leafbourg. I hope you saw that memorial, too. I always keep my eyes open for Skellengers. If I find your others, I'll add them, too.
