|Bio and Links|
I've been involved in genealogy for over 60 years. It started when an uncle asked me to make a family tree for an upcoming family reunion. That reunion is over, but the tree hasn't stopped growing. Cemeteries are a wonderful source of family history, and, observation combined with outright detective work make a fascinating and addictive combination. |
Please, do not put death certificates on the memorials, chances are I've already put any pertinent information in the biography. Let's celebrate the life of the person.

|EEBJ||RE: Mary Spencer Holst Hohl|
Thanks so much for your kind words. I feel that a person's Memorial should be more than a name and dates, so I try to provide additional information if I can.
I very much enjoy doing genealogy research, and find that an added bonus is learning more about history, which I didn't find that interesting as a school subject. However, as I see how my ancestors fit into history, it all becomes quite fascinating to me.
As your profile shows, you've been doing this type of work for a long time. I hope you've found all of your family. Best wishes to you,

|EEBJ||RE: John Hohl|
Thanks for your offer to transfer John Hohl's memorial, but I have no additional info about him, except that he immigrated on Mar. 6, 1896, arriving in Philadelphia, PA, with his parents Henry and Albertine Hohl. He is in the 1900 Census in Ford City, Armstrong, PA, with his parents and a sibling Peter.

|EEBJ||RE: Mary Hohl|
Thanks so much for the transfer of both Mary Spencer Holst Hohl and her first husband Dr. Elmer B. Holst. I see that you have even added some information. Our extended family still has some of "Grandma" Hohl's newspaper columns in which she sometimes wrote of the antics of her great-grandchildren. The whole family will be delighted.
Again, thank you for all your extensive work and effort.

Do you know what regiment William Cole served in, I would assume, during the Civil War?

Hello and thank you for all you do. I just wanted to give you a correction for the above mentioned memorial. I'm guessing it was wrong in the book you took the info from or just a typo but his sister Catherine was married to J.(John)DENNIS Shinew, not Daniel as written. I am only familiar with the Gunder's as to how they come into the Shinew line which happens to be that marriage. Again, thank you for helping others, like myself, find their past. Cat Shinew
