Bio and Links
Became fascinated with cemeteries and genealogy when my uncle forwarded the history of the Easter side of my tree. I have since expanded my research to all sides of my tree and then some. I appreciate those that have taken pictures of my family headstones and hope to be able to help others during my travels.

Hi JM,

You mentioned that you had this document for Marshall Irvin Taylor b. 1894 and d. 1975. I would love a copy. Do you have it scanned as you can email it to me at

Thanks so much,

Re: Catharine Longwell Close
Thanks for the quick response! I am descended through Adam & Catharine's daughter, July/Julia Ann Close who married John W McClintick. I would be interested in seeing what is in the Riddle book.

Also, I'd love to see even the abstract of Thomas Longwell's will. Does he mention a sister, Catharine Close? I recently received an actual copy of their brother, John Longwell's, will. It confused me as he lists giving money to his 6 sisters, whom he listed, including Catharine Close. However, at least 5 of the 6 were deceased at this point! It really confused me. The only one he mentioned as deceased (in a round about way) was Mary. I think he listed all of his siblings because he never married. But, giving money to his dead sisters has me baffled. I thought this will would 'prove' that he was Catharine's sister, but it only confused me!

Catharine Longwell Close
Hi! You are maintaining a page for "Catharine, wife of Adam Close." She is my 4th great grandmother. I, too, believe she is a daughter of Matthew Longwell, but I'm still trying to prove (or disprove) that fact. Do you have anything that might help me? I just hired a genealogist in PA to help me out, too, so I'm hoping to document this so I can continue researching this family.
