|I have been a student of my family history since my childhood when I listened to my Grandmother tell family stories. This continued with genealogical trips with my mother, and I continued the tradition with my children. My family has tended to stay in the Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia area.|
I'm always eager to meet "new" cousins.

I see that Jacob Wolfe was your 4th Great Grandfather. He was mine also. I was descended from Solomon Wolfe and Jacob George Wolfe, and his daughter Annette (Nettie) was my Great Grandmother. Hope to hear back from you. I have renewed my interest in family genealogy recently and find it fascinating. Almost like putting together a big puzzle and searching for all of the missing pieces.
|Dianne||RE: Underground Railroad|
Thank you, Mary!
I appreciate the info you provided. I had never heard the term 'conductor' used when references were made to the underground railroad. Yes, I knew what it was and to my dismay couldn't believe my daughter thought it was an actual railroad! Either they didn't teach that in school or her mind was absent that day. I want her to read what you sent - thanks again, Mary.

Hi- Michael Alt was also my 5th great grandfather and believe this gravesite is on my cousin's land in Upper Tract, WV if I'm not mistaken. I visited it many times as a child. My great grandfather was George Edward Alt (1889-1980). I come from a long line of Jacob and Michael Alt's before that! Anyway, just recently lost my grandmother, Imogene Shreve Alt, who is buried in Wilson Chapel Cemetery, in Upper Tract. Good to know our bloodline is out there, active and growing!

Thanks for all that you shared on him and your family, amazing how we trip over one another sometimes. Never knew why my great great grandma's stone hd "Diehl" on it, thought maybe it was her maiden name... and now I have a better picture thanks to you. If you chat with your dear aunt, tell her a distant relative says hello and would value any recollections of John or Rebecca or this mystery "Amelia" she shares with you.

I have added more to Rebecca's memorial, including the fact she and John lived in Ohio in their later years... though I have no idea if she stayed out there after he passed.

I have added John's death cert to his memorial. Help yourself, but... it says his wife was Amelia Diehl! Any clues?

PS- the contributor who has John Diehl also has his daughter, your Celestia as Celstia Leiniger. I sent him a SAC asking she be linked to him.
