Last week, I added all of the edits that you sent for the Girtons/Shellhammers in Dutch Hill Cemetery in Bloomsburg, PA. Thank you for the updates. I haven't had a chance to reply until now. Perhaps Jacob Girton 71431668 and Anna Girton 114697855 headstones are still somewhat readable. I'll look for them for photo and also the Shellhammers at Briar Creek Union Cemetery when the weather is warmer.
|Ellen||RE: Daniel Shellhammer|
My apologies. I did not know the story about Daniel, son of PJ, and assumed that the Daniel who lived continuously in West Penn was PJ's son because he was the right age and in the right place. If you have a history of Daniel son of PJ that you are sure is correct that has him moving out west, then this Daniel must be the son of Simon, whom I did not previously know about.
With regard to place of birth, it was probably Penn, Berks, Pennsylvania, now West Penn, Schuylkill. There is a place named Pennside in Berks, but it is down near Reading and I don't show any connection in the family to it.
The death record for Daniel in Michigan is a bit bizarre, because it clearly states Daniel was from Germany but the 1870 census clearly states he was from Pennsylvania. I have no idea what Ger, Pennsylvania means in the biographical index.

Hi Margaret - The reason you received the decline is because I checked the headstone on my profile and updated it myself to verify your request. I changed the death date to June 18, 1901. If you had gone to the profile, you would have seen the update. This message should not have been posted on my wall - your question should have been attached to the edit button on the profile.
|Linda Halfmann||James McMaster|
I sent the following message to Juliet: "Hello. James McMaster, Phebe Curtis's first husband, is my husbands GGG grandfather. My husband and I traveled to Medina, Ohio and determined that James came (to Guilford Tep., Medina, Ohio) to marry Phebe Curtis in 1823. Their son, Marcus, is my husband's GG grandfather. There is no record of James death in Medina County. Do you know where James travelled from or any other bit of information about him? Do you know anything about Phebe and James' daughter Ann?" Also, you mentioned a Curtis bible. Does that provide any insight? Is possible to have a copy of Curtis family?Also, you mentioned letters that your aunt exchanged. Is it possible to get copies? Thank you so much for your help.

Hi it's the date that was in the Historical Society letter, those are usually made by someone walking through the cemetery, but as always exercise caution with any date :) as you well know mistakes are made in obits, transcripts, on markers and from family

Hi there :)
thanks for the Mallison edits - do you have a resource for me to cite in the bio, especially since the burials are very old.

It's memorial #74566393. The last name is spelled wrong!
Hi Susan, I've transferred the memorials so you can update. Thanks!

I think I got these dates from the transcription of the cemetery done in the 1930s by the DAR. Obviously, there is no longer a headstone at the location. I will transfer the management to you, since you are doing active research and may be able to find accurate documentation for the dates.
