RE: Anna Elizabeth Goldman
Sorry for the confusion...

You have the memorial #42629345 named Anna Elizabeth Goldman Batdorff listing her as the wife of George Peter Batdorff. In reality, as the pictured tombstone shows, her name was Elizabeth Batdorff, and she was the DAUGHTER of George Peter Batdorff and his wife Anna Maria Kurr. The confusion comes because we are speaking about two different George Peter Batdorffs... the above mentioned Elizabeth's father and mother are the afore mentioned GP and Anna, he being the son of Hermanus Heinrich and Maria Anspach. the father of Elizabeth of the memorial was only married to Anna Kurr; while another George Peter,the son of Johannes Martin Batdorf and Maria Elisabetha Walborn, was the husband of Anna Elizabeth Goldman and Eva Elizabeth Reith. The memorial you created actually belongs to Elizabeth, the daughter of GP and Anna Kurr, not Anna Elizabeth Goldman.

I hope this clears the fog of confusion.

RE: Shields Twins
90? Wow - bless you - I think you're doing just great to be on a computer and doing what you do. And it is much appreciated, so keep up the good work.

I am not related, but I got into researching the Sheilds family because my aunt used to own the Shields' farm, and Cortland gave her some old photos when she bought the place back in 1971. So when I was adding the photo and saw Cortland had a twin, who was also on the site, I wanted to see them linked together.

If you want to temporarily transfer Cortland to me, I will make the link and then transfer him back to you.

Cortland Shields

Do you know how to make inline links? If so, I would love to see Cortland connected to his twin brother: Kenneth Shields

Thomas Lauer Batdorf #42936604
Hi Alberta,
I was wondering if you could make a slight alteration in the description of the children for Thomas Lauer Batdorf.
Sophia Batdorf was not a daughter of Thomas
she was my Great Grandmother.
She is in actual fact Myrtle Sophia married to John F Batdorf, which is the son of Daniel Thomas Batdorf who married Sophia Troutman.
I've been looking heavily into the batdorf's and I know this part has errors in this part of Virginia Faust Batdorf's book - which I am slowly working my way through.
Daniel Thomas Batdorf in actual fact had 2 families. I managed to find his grand daughter of his second family.
Thank you
