Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Rebecca, and I've been helping my Mother Sandra with her Newlin/Snapp family research since (2004). And, since I'm an avid Genealogist, I'm having lots of fun researching and learning all about my ancestors and relatives, "even the ones I've never met." But it's also very awesome "finding out where all my Ancestors all came from," before they made there journey to America. From what my family and relatives have all said, and, from also discovering through all my family research. It looks like most of my Ancestors were of German, German-Dutch, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, British and French origin. That's why I'm so "silly." (Hee-Hee) :)

Through my family research, I've learned that most of my Ancestors came to America, traveling on either a "Palatine German Ship," or British, or Scot/Irish Ships, first arriving in the ports of Pennsylvania; before migrating to Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Ohio.

"Go Ohio Buckeyes!"

Though many early European Settlers first arrived to the New World (America), on the "Mayflower" in (1607). It appears that most of my German, German-Dutch, and British (English) European ancestors have been here in America, especially when "Quaker" William Penn settled in Pa., and colonialized Pennsylvania to be a state in (1682). But, so far my mother and I have traced her earliest (Uhland/Newland/Newlin) ancestors as far back as the early 1720's; and I've researched my father Melvin's Eckard/Triplett ancestors to the 1750's. But, I'm sure some of my earlier ancestors were here even earlier than that when "European Settlers" from all over the world, came to "Colonial America," during (1492-1763).

Though I've always enjoyed learning about World History and American History. By researching my ancestors, I've also found a lot of my ancestors have fought in almost every war, from: The Revolutionary War (1775-1783); War of 1812; The Civil War (1861-1865); World War I (1914-1918); World War II (1939-1945); The Korean War (1950-1953); and The Vietnam War (1954-1975), and so on... And it makes "Me" very proud to know that a lot of my Ancestors, not only stood up for a cause - but they also were brave enough to sacrifice their time and life, to defend and fight for my FREEDOM! And for that, a loving "THANK YOU" to all my ancestors/relatives who fought for my Freedom, and for World PEACE! And may God Bless them "as they rest in peace," until I get to meet my ancestors that I never knew, and be reunited with my relatives that I did know, someday in Heaven.

(Noted): If you see a surname with a (/),
it means that surname is close to two
different border-riding countries, that,
the origin could be either country.

Being a Baptist (Christian) I have read throughout the Bible, how important knowing ones "Ancestors," really are. For, God even encourages us to not only know and pass down ones "Genealogy" to the next generation "and so on." But, when we take the time to remember our ancestors and loved ones (who made "us" who we are), we are not only showing them respectful honor "by remembering them," even if we never got the chance to meet them. And, by taking the time to acknowledge their "names" and their place in history," we're also making sure their legacy lives on "through us." I saw this touching saying on someone else's memorial page, that really said it all: "Every soul's story deserves to be remembered," by as many people as possible, for as long as possible, whether a life story or a mere scrap of information about their life or what they looked like or who they were, as long as someone remembers their flesh-n-blood departed loved ones, they are still "alive!"

Thank you, and have a "blessed" day!

Thank you for posting her obituary. I am not related to her. I was just fulfilling a photo request for her headstone. I am sure the person who maintains the memorial was happy to have the information.

RE: Edinburg Oh Cemetery Furbee
Thank you for reply. The reason I thought it was related to you is Quote, this A, W , was moved by his father Mr. Boon to the Ravenna Cemetery. That is what I was wondering, do you have any A. W. Boon's that might have some connection to any of your relatives buried in Ravenna? The Furbee, could just be a misspelling. I guess I am trying to figure that out, because the person who had this person moved was a Mr. Boon. Hope this helps explain better

Edinburg Oh Cemetery Furbee
Hi, I am entering Edinburg memorials. I found myself confused with some transcriptions from 1993 PC Genealogy Society records. I have a mystery, could you help me? There is a FURBEE, A.W. "Moved to Ravenna by father Mr. Boom....b or d Oct 24, 1929. I followed you memorial link Robert Alexander Boon. Do you know who Furbee is and can you give me more info? Since you are a Boom/n descendant, perhaps you know about this in your research. Was there a Furbee, or is that a misspelling? or is the transcription wrong? Thanks for any insight.
