David and Catharine Jackson
Hi William,
Thank you for all your efforts on findagrave!
I have been researching my gg-grandfather`s civil war unit, Company "D" 2nd Pennsylvania Volunteer Cavalry. Are you a descendant of David and Catharine Jackson ?
Based on the 1960 census, I believe William, John K., Henry, Newton, and Isaac Jackson were all sons of David and Catharine Jackson of Strasburg, Lancaster, Co., Pa.
William and Newton both served in Co.D 2nd P.V.C., brother John K. served in 30th Pa. Vol Inf.
William did not survive the war. His memorial page lists his death as 1861. Could this be an error?
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
I have requested edits that would link Newton and John K. to there mother (Catherine), and the other siblings.
Best Wishes.

Phebe Miller Higgins
Question? Are you sure that her madden name was Miller and not Gamwell? The book Bromley genealogy by Viola Bromley copyright 1911 lists it as Gamwell and this was used as the middle name of her son Moses. As you may well know using the mother's madden name was a common practice in first and middle names of her children and was passed down to other generations.
My father, Rowley Bromley got his first name from his mother, Emma Rowley.
Just wondering?
Thank you very much

Capt. Ben Start, father of "Doc"
Andelot Farm Cemetery is in vol 4 of Tombstoning in Kent County. Benjamin is entered as "Stark" is why I haven't found this before. The Home Farm entry for his wife, Catherine Lyzer has the citation for Stark being a misspelling. Are you familiar with the cemetery location? I will call Eddie at the farm office and find out what getting access entails if you know someone with a really small yard who would like to exercise their string trimmer. I wrote the Conservancy who referred me to Fish and Game where a clever lady knew the inside procedure and that Eddie was who I should call. I will redo my entry for Doc and his then unknown father. Cordially, Grace

RE: Start/Startt
Thanks, I have been on this since 1994; Jack's relatives had already done the "easy ones." Benjamin "Doc" apparently had siblings Jerome 1835, John W 1842 (not sure who furnished the dates, maybe the one you have,) James 1847, Franklin 1849. Also on the same sheet, from the Start file at the Centreville library, suggests Capt Start, Doc's father, had two daughters with a first wife, besides Catherine Lyzer. It has Solomon 1832 as son of John and Nancy, also. I thought he might be a sibling of Doc. Anything you in your other searches relevant would be very welcome. "Tombstoning..." has none of these folks as far as I can tell.

Do you live near Kent County MD? Do you know about Benjamin Stark/Start being buried at Andelot Farms? I am interested in whether that grave is marked and accessible for a photo. Some large tracts were transferred to a conservancy but I don't have enough local geography sense to know if Andelot Farms were included. Thanks, Grace. I research for Jackie Carpenter, great, great grandson of Doc Start, who I determined was still alive in 1890 being it is he who appears on the Veterans Census. He served in the Army from 1853-1858 at Benicia, CA and left a pretty big family in Shasta County and "left with the soldiers" per a granddaughter, now deceased.
