Bio and Links
Genealogy is my hobby and I have found Find A Grave to be a useful way to discover more info about ancestors. I enjoy making contact with newly discovered cousins so feel free to contact me for more info about any of the memorials I created as I probably have more information on the individual. My virtual cemeteries include my direct ancestors. I am particularly interested in my ancestors from the following families: Hunt, Becker, Renz, Stump, Iungerich, Warner, Lowry, Jory, Stahl, West, Cline, and Hendricks.

Re: Photo request for Wm Jory and family at Mt Hope
I posted a photo to the 5 memorials, as you requested, but unfortunately it is just of an empty plot. You can read the details in the caption of the photo. Note that the plot map indicates that there were two other Jory's buried there, but they don't have Find-a-Grave memorials because they died after 1892 and Daryl Verstreate, who created the memorials (and tens of thousands of other memorials) from the Mt Hope Interment Records, only did it up through the records that end in 1892.

Picture of Raymond Sherman's Grave markers
May I have your permission to use the pictures you took of Raymond Carvell Sherman, Raymond Carvell Sherman, Jr. and Alise Williamson Sherman's grave markers on my WikiPage database?

Raymond, the elder was my uncle (my father's younger brother) and Raymond, Jr., of course was my cousin, born the same year I was, and died, sadly from ALS.

Thank you so much for taking these pictures.

RE: William Franklin Baker
He may well be there without a gravemarker; I just wondered since there are no other Bakers in the cemetery.

There was a listing before in that Pleasant Hill for someone who was actually buried in a cemetery of the same name in WV and I wondered if this was another. But with all the connections to Belmont, this is probably the right one. (Unless, of course, they meant Pleasant Ridge, but there aren't any Bakers there either!)

William Franklin Baker
What is your source for William Franklin Baker being in Pleasant Hill in Belmont County? I've photographed the whole cemetery and don't find him in my photos.

RE: re Samuel Hendricks
I didn't realize there was more to know about such listings. I do know a case in which one of my other Mennonite ancestors (Benjamin Rosenberger) did serve in a non-combatant sort of role (I've seen it referred to as "baggage wagon driver," or something like that - we'd say "logistics" today, I think) early on and then his father is recorded to have paid in lieu of service for both Benjamin and his brother later on. So, maybe there were a couple of phases in Samuel's participation. I'll keep my eyes open for any additional info.

As Samuel's direct descendent (hi, cousin!), you may have a document I've been looking for to prove his sister's place in the family. I've read that in 1765, Samuel's siblings deeded the entire family farm to him and that Christiana would be listed. I don't have any other "hard" evidence of her being a daughter of Henry Hendrick. Have you seen this deed?

re Samuel Hendricks
Hi, Elizabeth. I looked up the reference for Samuel's Revolutionary War service (PA Archives Sixth Series, Vol I, p 614) given in one of the SAR applications and can verify that his name appears as Private 1st Class, Company of Capt Benjamin Weevers, 1st Battalion of Philadelphia County Militia, using the spelling of the Captain's name given in the original record. He's one of my 5th g-granduncles. His sister Christiana is my 5-th g-grandmother.

How funny! Cathi Moore is one of my Stanyard cousins. She's a PA researcher and there are many Lambrights in PA.

Thank you, Liz. I have updated his memorial. My cousin is a Lambright descendant and I apparently entered this site before I started researching his family tree. Any idea who Nancy's parents are? I'd be interested in seeing how or if they connect to him.

Thanks again,
