Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Sonoma County with my 19 year old son. I graduated from Sonoma State University with a BA in Anthropology and have started a Master's program. My eldest son lives in London. My youngest is a computer genius and currently in junior college. We are researching Davis, Yost, DeLeone families and are always interested in Dory, Gushurst, Haske, Reese and Wall(ing) ancestors.

While searching for my family graves, I often find information, such as the WPA transcriptions from the 1930's, which has not been entered into cemeteries on FindAGrave. If I have someone that you believe may be yours, don't hesitate to contact me for a transfer! If they are mine, I will keep them though! I am not one of those obsessed people (you know who you are) who create and hoard memorials, like it's some kind of a race, so even if you are only distantly related or just a friend, just ask and they are yours!

yaac, jwg

RE: Rosina and Rosemunde
Hi Lisa,

Yes, my Great Grandmother Rosina had her legs removed at the age of 69 -- due to Diabetes. She also went blind. She was apparently a very Saintly Lady. When my Father was dating my Mother, my Mother lived in the house adjacent to the Herbert Homestead -- so she knew her Paternal Grandparents very well. In fact, Jacob Herbert (Rosina's Husband) and my Mother shared the same birthday (June 21).

My future Father got to meet Rosina circa 1945-46 -- and he was immediately taken by her personality and loveliness. He helped attend to her leg wounds and would also carry her upstairs to the only bathroom in the household -- when needed.

It makes sense that these are the two Nuns that are on the wire recording with Rosina. I did convert those recordings to cassette tape back in the early 80's. Perhaps I should now convert them to CD's for posterity.

Please continue to keep in touch. I recently found photos of Secunda (without the scratch) and Jacob Schmidt. I think I E-mailed them to you already -- but just to be sure, I'll do it again now.

Cousin Bob

RE: Rosina and Rosemunde
Hi Lisa,

Believe it or not -- I have a recording of two nuns who were related to my Great Grandmother Rosina Herbert.

My Father bought a wire recorder in 1947 and traveled to the nuns to record a loving greeting for Rosina -- who was blind and had both her legs amputated -- but she was a loving soul.

Being blind, my Father tricked her, and after she listened to the nuns loving messages, he recorded her comments about it -- then played her comments back to her. She then commented on her comments -- and again Dad recorded her comments -- then played it back again.

I think it went on three times -- and Rosina was just laughing over it all.

She died a few months before I was born in 1948.

Looking forward to a letter regarding your findings during the Ohio trip.

Hi Lisa,

Yes, I know that.

Where did I make a mistake -- cause I did know?

RE: Reese
I have a great aunt (Miriam Reese Lewis) who's father was Henry Lewis born on October 13, 1862 in Trevethin Wales. I do not know if Trevethin is a county or village or what.....his siblings were Ruth, Cahterine, Margaret, Anne, Jacob, Elizabeth and Thomas. He also had two sisters who were both named Llydia and they passed away as infants.

I assume there is a Reese connection because my great aunts middle name is Reese but I have not found it yet.

Is Trevethin any where near Glamorgan Wales?
