Find A Grave Memorial# 38771886
You mention that Mary Amanda Binkley was the daughter of Daniel Binkley and Catherine Zartman, with brothers Thomas Binkley and James K. Binkley. In researching my great-great grandfather, Thomas Binkley(born 1838), I have only ascertained one sibling, Amelia Ann Binkley, born in 1830. Thomas married Matilda Fisher in 1859; Amelia married Basil M. Clark. After Daniel Binkley died in 1870, Catherine, Thomas and his family, and Amelia and her family all migrated to Illinois in 1873.
I find no census records of Mary Amanda Binkley in 1860 with parents Daniel Binkley and Catherine Zartman, nor any records of James K. Binkley born to Daniel and Catherine. Do you have any source information for the relationship of Mary Amanda and James K. as children of Daniel Binkley and Catherine Zartman?

RE: Zartman Facts & Photo
Thanks so much! I never heard of the shaving cream. I am very hesitant to do anything to gravestones. I have used a soft brush and tracings, but that's all. Sounds like you've been doing this a long time.

I have a digital copy of the Zartman Family History by Rev. Zartman. But I will also check out the library.

Again, thanks!

Zartman Facts & Photo
I, too, am interested in the source of the facts that you've added to Peter Zartman's memorial. Also, what technology did you use to enhance the tombstone inscription?

Thanks, Wanda Taylor (pemichongan)

Thank you for posting this photo. I am researching this family for other family members. The photo was a treat to find.

George Hawk
The headstone photo has been posted. His stone has his year of birth as 1866.

Lewis Hawk
I meant George was born after Lewis was taken prisoner.

RE: George Hawk
My statement regarding his birth record says "perhaps she had George out of wedlock...don't know."

He does show in the 1870 census as being 4, living with his mother, 2 siblings named Hawk and one sibling named Carnicom (misspelled Carmean on the census). Being 4 in 1870 would put his year of birth as 1865 to 1866 depending on the date of the census. Lewis was taken prisoner in June of 1864 and died while in captivity. If the dates are correct and George was born in July of 1866 his birthday is 23 months after Lewis passed and it would be the longest human gestation on record.

I have requested a photo of the headstone.
