I grew up in Morristown NJ and got interested in genealogy at a young age when I found out my mother's mother's family line Meeker went all the way back to the New Haven Colony settlement days in Connecticut. The history of their family and the many families that married into their line fascinated me.|
Since then I've researched my father's line, Schultz, and many family names related including: Hatry, Munier, McKenzie, Thompson, Donaldson, Purdy, McBurney etc.. As well as my mother's line, McIntyre, and their many related families including: Meeker, Young, Mitchell, Waters, Nuber, Schaefer, Leonard, Joralemon, etc.
Researching my wife's family line includes these names: Laventure, Savaloja, Jacobs, Beyer, Morin, Caron, Wirkkala, Porter, Bacon, Hogg, Taylor, etc.
I am hoping to find the gravesites of these and be of help to any related to these families for inquiry about family info.
I presently pastor Hope Community Church of the C&MA in New Brighton, MN.

Thank you for adding Robert Hoggs middle name Shelby to his memorial. We will be in Delaware County, Iowa next week for a few days. If there is anything you need from there please let us know. We just received a copy of a photo of Dorothy (Hogg) Flannagan sitting in front of Robert Shelby Hogg's cabin in Delaware County, Iowa in 1992. I will add that photo soon. We will check to see if the cabin is still standing next week. We also just got a copy of the book "Descendants of Michael Hogg" by Marguerite Tibbetts revised in 2002. From the information from the this book I have now linked as many Hoggs as I can together. Robert Shelby Hoggs probate is over 200 pages long.

JOHN H. STRAUB—Pittsburgh has furnished the field of endeavor for three generations of the family of Straub, founded in this city in 1830 by John N. Straub. John N. Straub was succeeded by his son, John H. Straub, whose death occurred in 1901, and the present day representative of the line in Pittsburgh business is Walter S. Straub, grandson of the founder. John N. Straub came from Baltimore , Md. , to Pittsburgh , making the journey on foot at a time when the metropolis of to-day was but a town, and in 1832 opening a brewery that prospered in large degree and was operated under the name of John N. Straub & Company. In 1883 a merger was made with the Eberhardt & Ober Company, and the business that he had inaugurated and guided in such prosperous paths lost its distinctive identity. John N. Straub married Elizabeth Lang, who died April 23, 1888, and he survived her until Nov. 18, 1891. John H. Straub, son of John N. and Elizabeth (Lang) Straub, was born in Allegheny City (Pittsburgh ), Pa. , Dec. 19, 1851. He attended the schools of his native city and the Western University , and upon the completion of his studies in these institutions went to Darmstadt , Germany , where he supplemented his general scholastic training with courses in chemistry and music. Upon his return to the United States he became associated with his father in the affairs of the Straub Brewing Company, and for many years held the office of treasurer of that firmly founded, substantial concern. In the organization of this company he was a potent force, his wise business judgment aiding largely in the determination of its policy, and his fair-mindedness, democratic nature, and friendly good will contributing in generous measure to the maintenance of cordial and satisfactory relations in the plant. Mr. Straub was a Republican in political faith, never an office holder, yet a believer in the principles of his party and a worker for its success. He was a member of the Masonic order and a communicant of Grace Reformed Church.John H. Straub married, April 26, 1877, Caroline E., daughter of Carl John and Louise (Hatry) Schultz. Carl John Schultz was the founder and principal owner of the Schultz Bridge and Iron Company, of McKees Rocks, Pa. , now a part of the organization of the American Bridge Company. He was a native of Germany, there educated for the profession of architecture, and after coming to the United States was for a time engaged in professional and technical pursuits prior to the establishment of the company bearing his name, as the head of which he became prominent in bridge building circles, first in the construction of wooden and then of iron bridges. He was a resident of East Birmingham, public spiritedly active in public affairs, and filled a position of responsibility and importance in his community. He served for fourteen years on the Central Board of Education, presented the South Side schools with a library, was one of the staunchest friends of education, and served as burgess of South Side. His wife diedFeb. 21, 1900, and his death occurred a little more than a year later, April 13, 1901. John H. and Caroline E. (Schultz) Straub had children, Walter S., of whom further; and Louise Emilie, who married Henry Oliver Evans, an attorney of Pittsburgh , and they are the parents of Oliver and Louise.Walter S. Straub was educated in the Bethlehem Preparatory School and the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute at Troy , N. Y. He is now associated with the Vacuum Oil Company. Mr. Straub has a long and honorable military record, including almost two years of service with the American Expeditionary Forces in France . He attended the 1916 officers' training camp at Plattsburg and was commissioned second lieutenant in the Reserve Corps. In that capacity he was ordered to the first officers' training camp at Fort Niagara , at its close being assigned to the 304th Supply Train at Camp Meade , where he became adjutant to the train commander. He was ordered overseas, Dec. 6, 1917, and in France was stationed at La Pallice as motor transportation officer, where he established the first American works at what later became Base No. 5, one of the largest motor bases in France , being the first American officer assigned to that area. On March 12, 1918, he was located at Meaux , France , to receive convoy instructions from the French, and there was granted a license as convoy pilot, being assigned to duty with a French supply unit. On May 30, he was transferred to Marseilles , later becoming convoy pilot of the 309th Supply Train of the 84th Division, serving with that division until after the armistice. He was for a time at the headquarters of the 79th Division at Verdun , before sailing for the United States, where he received an honorable discharge.He has continued active in military affairs in the National Guard of Pennsylvania, and has been given the rank of captain in the 18th Regiment. It is interesting to note that this is the same organization in which, under the name of the Duquesne Greys, his father held the rank of major, serving on the staff of Governor Hartranft. Major Straub was in active service during the riots of 1877, when he was placed in charge of the commissary, charged with rationing the Philadelphia troops.Captain Straub married Rachel McClintock, daughter of J. R. and Elizabeth (Arbathnot) McClintock. They are the parents of four children: Walter S., Elizabeth A., Graham, and Rachel Graham.
