Bless you for requesting the parent connections!

RE: George Andes / Mary Hubbert
Dear Cuzn:
Mary would have been my GGG Grandmother. Some of my original research included some questionable info about Mary being a Shafer or being married previously to a Shafer. Info is correct other than her name. Another version shows Samuel Howbert/Hubbert/Hubbard with multiple wives? or guesses by different people. i discarded most of this because it didn't work with other info I believed correct.

See links for Samuel's death:

I did find a George Shafer [33] farmer, married to a Susan [29] with a son, William F. [8] Rockbridge co, VA in 1850.

I have no record of John & Mary Andes' marriage just supposition that they may have married in the 18-21 yr old age range. Most families had children right away and had a lot of children... 5-10.

I did track about 130 Andes members trying to discover connections. Who are you descended thru after George?

You may write me directly if you wish at:

RE: George / Mary C Andes
Yes, John and Mary are right next to each other. And yes, it does say wife of John :) I added the info as a caption to the picture. I cant tell if there is an inscription at the bottom. It's a bad picture/stone, plus it looks like the sun was in front of me which isnt a good way to take pics. Their son George is buried down the road in St. Luke's. Here is a good resource, kind of the Bible of us picture takers around here -

RE: George Andes / Mary Hubbert
I agree with all you have said. I also believe George to be Mary's brother. I have seen all these sources before also. I have been stuck trying to find a George that fits.

Do you have anything else on Susan (Andes) Shaver? These children seem to have been born long after this couple would have been married ca 1805? If George is first born, they had no children for 11 years. And only 3 children. That seems odd to me. I am not completely convinced.

Samuel's parents George & Elizabeth (Cochenour) Howbert both come from the Shenandoah Valley too. He was born there ca 1802.

I am a descendant of Samuel Howbert & Mary Andes Howbert.

Mary Andes Hubbert
I have been searching for Mary's parents for many years but have been stuck because i was under the assumption that her father's name was George per her son's BIO below.

I believe as you do that her brother is likely the George Andes who married Anna OREBAUGH. Do you have a source that links these folks as family?

Lutheran minister, educator and banker, was born at Peter's Creek, on the Lynchburg turnpike, two miles from Salem, in Roanoke county, Virginia, on October 23, 1844. His father was Samuel Hubbert, a farmer; and his mother was Mary Andes, a daughter of George Andes, of Shenandoah County, Virginia.

Re: Branner
Yep, you understand me correctly! Too many contributors out there (not yourself) treat this site like their Ancestry family tree instead of what it is...Find a Grave.

Hi there,
I'm thinking my reasons for declines are not going through, and I always type out why in the little box.
To keep it short...I know who John's parents are as I'm a descendant. That's not the issue. The issue is there is ZERO proof they are buried there. Not only that but she is listed wrong (as Easterly, after husband #1) and they have all kinds of burial unknowns linked to them (which don't belong on the site). It's a big old mess. I've declined to make these links in the past for these exact same reasons, unfortunately that's not going to change. The names of his parents are in John Branner's bio, and unless there is some solid proof that Casper and Catherine are buried there in unmarked graves (church records, maybe) then that is as good as it gets.
Hope that explains things,

I have added the section/lot numbers as you suggested. Let's just leave ownership of the pages as is.
