I would be happy to remove the link to Catharine if you can provide me with the marriage record of John to Margaret.

Thanks for your permission for Sons of the American Revolution to re-post your photo from Tobias Hanline's memorial.

Military records can be found using ancestry.com
By adding military records, it is my way of honoring deceased veterans. In many instances I have found memorials of veterans that do not mention their service. So, I add the military record to their memorial. There are also veterans who have no grave markers as well. To me that is disgraceful.
I am happy to know that you appreciate my efforts.

nHello Karen, in regards to Congressman Focht's parents: Rev. David Focht 64497556 and Susan Focht, I went to both their memorials and the option for adding childen of both is already filled to their max for entries. Also since the Congressman is in the famous section no relative entries can be made from his memorial. Thanks,
|Jacobsmom||RE: Hill photos|
Yes, bigger than I remember it to be. Glad to take the pics for you. I also have John, Jacob and Margaret Hill and R Ada and Rachel Hill pics if you are interested in them. John and Jacob seem to have died the same year or at the same time and both were very young.
Absolutely my pleasure. I had no idea how close to you he was, but knew he was a respected gent in his day, so thought I should mention it. If memory serves, his daughter Martha took care of both her parents (as a single lady) til they passed, and then passed not long after herself. Anyway, they seemed a very decent family. I should ask you... any chance you are in Union County? I just found out my great great grandpa is buried near Hartleton (exact location, down to the plot) and it's making me crazy because I really want to go but can't, as I'm a fulltime caregiver to my incapacitated mom (and we're in eastern PA). I'm chomping at the bit because it's possible his parents are there too, and that's been a longstanding riddle. If you might take pics, and it is of interest, I can offer reciprocation via census lookups or I can do pics (if you need any) in Montgomery or Lehigh counties which are not far. Let me know your thoughts when you can, take good care until then.

Thank you very much for taking the time to go to the cemetery to find my 5th great uncle's headstone.
I also appreciate that you told me that his wife's stone is on it to. I probably wouldn't have found out if you hadn't have told me

Uriah is on a map with roster that was researched and published by a veterans' group in Knox County just before the start of WWII. It's my understanding that they used their organization's records and township records for the project. The rows and grave numbers on this map are reversed from the published list of all graves in Knox, so I have a copy I've added the alternate numbering to. The graves of vets were marked by a black rectangle with triangle at one end. The non-vet graves are just empty rectangles. The roster has the name of each vet with the row and grave number, plus a code for the war in which he served. I'll have to dig it out of my files but will send you this info.

Note that on Michael APP's page I do say that some people give the name of his wife as Elisabeth POLSIE. I've never seen documentation of that. Perhaps he was married twice but again I've never seen proof of that. Michael's will names his wife Elisabetha Hannah APP nee SCHOLL and the will was written in old German script. So go ahead and link to her ---- if it get's proven that Elisabetha POLSIE was then Michael's first wife I can always change that.
I had hoped to find out one way of the other how to sort out Michael APP's wife or wives and how to figure him out. After I decided that the Michael APP of Lancaster Co was a different man than our ancestor in Northampton Co I decided to post so the question about his wive or wives can be settled once and for all.

I sure appreciate your kind words about U.C. Gregg's memorial. He sounds like he must have been a wonderful educator and Christian. I feel bad for him being buried away from the rest of his family. I check on him almost every time I go to Greenwood. If you'd like a transfer, please let me know.
