RE: Mattis?
I sent you one or two e-mails.

RE: Mattis?
My Mattis ancestor arrived in Philadelphia 28 Aug 1750 aboard the ship Two Brothers. He settled in what is now Montgomery county, near Skippack. I am trying to find info on a grandson named John Mattis, born 4 May 1780 in Worcester Twp, died about 1833 in Limerick. I also have a 6th cousin who is researching Mattis family from the same common ancestor. Any help would be appreciated. My email address is

Are you researching the Mattis Family in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania? I may have a connection for you.

Thank you so much for posting the Grave of my Uncle George buried in Sicily-Rome American Cemetary in Italy. This will have a special meaning with Memorial Day approaching, then our Family Reunion on the last weekend of May.
My bucket list is to get to the cemetary in person, but if that doesn't happen I now have a beutiful picture of the headstone.
Many thanks;
The Charnichko Family

Thank you for helping me by posting a photo of the tombstone for Henrietta (Buffington) Bickel, which to my surprise, also includes her husband Henry Bickel. I appreciate your willingness to help me in my research on the Sallada family and related lines.
