Good to hear from you and Happy Spring!
I'm declining your request to change the birth year for Jesse from 1797 to 1799. There is an original image of the birth available on and it is written pretty clearly as 97 rather than 99. Do you know of another source that says 99?

RE: Re #116277077 Genevieve Barbara Volk Engelhardt
Hi, do not have solid date for her 1st marriage. I added the Social Security name change dates to her memorial. She claimed Juergens in 1970, probably when she was applying for her own SS benefits. She was listed as single, name Volk in 1920 and 1930 censuses, so the marriage was later, likely in the gap you mentioned between 1957-1960. That's all.

RE: Alvina Deinlein
Your welcome. I have 4-5 other photos with the same last name to post, as they were all in the same lot.

Thank you for the edit you sent me for this person. Do you have any other additional information about the Earl family? I believe I am a member of this family and am looking for more information to confirm Im on the right path.

Hannaford/Hanaford - East Monmouth Cemetery
Hi David, you created records for Josiah and Lucy Cole Hannaford and Corydon Hanaford in the East Monmouth Cemetery. I walked the cemetery today and did not find them. I then had the idea to check Find A Grave to see if they were in another Monmouth Cemetery and sure enough they are all in the Monmouth Neck Cemetery with photos.

RE: Benjamin Davis
Hi David, thanks for pointing out my duplicate, I have deleted it. With the "Troops" I goofed and thank you for bringing it to my attention. It comes from US Sons of the American Revolution Membership application.Under the listing for offspring it had that Benjamin served in the Rev. War under Sumpter's Bridge,State Troops. My mind just didn't catch that Troops belonged to the troop. I simply attached it to Ben's name when there is a clear comma between troops and Benjamin.

I do try very hard to document all of my information, am familiar with the number of errors with Ben Alexander's work and don't take other Ancestry members info without verifying since they will frequently had children born 10 years after the mothers death,ect.

Alexander ?? I must have picked up the author's middle name from the application and attached it to my Benjamin.

Benjamin Davis
David, were you aware that someone has created a duplicate memorial for Benjamin Davis? They have him listed as Benjamin Alexander Davis. Go to memorial number 150787009 to see. A lady named Lynn McGee is the creator of that one. Perhaps you should let her know & merge those memorials. Thought you'd like to know. Wonder where she got the middle name from?

RE: Rachel and Joseph Davis
Those were the only ones I saw for her (Rachel Davis). I wanted you to see them so we could figure out which one was really for her. Thanks & I will delete those from her memorial.

RE: Benjamin Davis
Look on Rachel P. Davis' memorial. I posted several Rev. War docs that state her as the widow of Joseph Davis.

Can you call the cemetery and ask what section he is in? Other wise it'll be almost impossible to find him.

Photo request
RE: Sarah Shirley (from 2011!)


I rec'd a request (not on Sarah), noticed a page full of unclaimed trying to work on them all. Also, Weesaw Twp working on their records to convert to computer, so difficult time to consult their records, but here is an update for you on what I have found so far:

Birth 22 SEP 1852; Death 06 DEC 1934; Notation info came from Death Certificate. They do have her listed in New Troy Cemetery, Section 5, Row 19.

I have walked the cemetery 2x, have not seen a stone for Sarah Shirley...yet. Cemetery does not have signs for sections or rows. Also I think that might be a former version of identification of sites. Big storm today, so have to go back. I will let you know. Linda

RE: Robert Espalla
Bottom step reads Ph. Wittman - most likely Phillip Aloysius Wittman who is buried there.

Sorry, I needed more research. Could not find the "townlet" or even creek suggested as burial place. Just got caught up in weddings and funerals here, plus wallet stolen. I have not forgotten, though. Barbara

Wittmann Family
Hi David,

I was just searching the Wittmann family and see you maintain Charles Wittmannís page. You must be married to one of his daughters.

I live in Mobile and writing a book on Bottling Companies of Mobile. I see Mr. Wittmann worked at Fosko and later Pepsi, then Pepsi-Dr. Pepper.

Do you have any knowledge of this? Or is anyone still living that would know about his career? Iím looking for stories, pictures, etc. I tried emailing you but your SPAM filter keeps returning my message. Jerry L. Reeves -

RE: Elizabeth Catherine Gilbert Bassler
I have updated some data with this family, as much as I could find with Ancestry. They now have death certificates, including Eliza's who died in Zelienople in 1908. If you do not have access to Ancestry, I can send you a copy of the certificate if you give me your email address.
I feel sure that Eliza was buried with the Rev but has no stone. Still, to be sure, it's best to check the obits. Are you in the Butler area? If not, let me know and I can try to see if it tells in the paper. I could also visit the church since I am in the area all the time doing research. Or you could call the church office. Since she was the minister's wife, they may have the info. Just let me know what you want to do ( I have given you my email).
I will go to the grave the next time I am there to get a picture of William and Julia's stone(s).

RE: Bedoit
I was shocked and saddened when I saw Christian Bedoit's memorial. I had not known about the child.

I recall Bill III was living in Phoenix, Arizona, and moved to Long Beach, CA, in July 2007. That was the last time I spoke to him. I coincidentally found out in January 2008 that he had passed away in September 2007. At that time, he was managing care for both his parents, William & Rebecca, who were in an assisted living facility in Tennessee. Seemed they depended on Bill very much. I believe he was also managing the finances and his father's estate. Bill unfortunately passed before his parents. I don't know where he is buried, or how he died, but I believe it was while he was in Chattanooga, TN.

There isn't anything in particular I was looking for, I was just curious to know what happened to Helen, as she was living with Bill when he died. I thought you might know something about how Bill died and was buried too.

If you do find out anything about either one of them, please let me know. Thanks for replying too. Nice chatting!

Samuel Alexander McGaughey
I am not aware of any evidence that Jane McLaughlin is buried with Samuel. There are a number of unreadable markers in the immediate area. If I had to guess, I would think that she is also there. Perhaps the church has burial records but I am not local to that area. I would also like to know the answer if you ever find out.
Are you related? I have a distant relationship to Samuel.

RE: Emma Weise in West Union
Yes, I chalked it. It is a GAR marker. She is buried by the James K P Anderson's family. That is the dark marker to the left in the picture. The little gray marker in the middle says Father (James). The marker to the bottom left of Emma's marker says JKP. So she is buried just outside the Anderson plot. She is obviously buried by herself. Maysville did not have the 1879 paper so I was unable to find anything more on her.

Henry Louis
His grave is at the Adath Israel Cemetery in Price Hill. There are many more Louis markers there. The pictures are now available (that is what has been photographed, and records of birth, death, and grave sites) at United Jewish Cemetery's website. Just go into geneology and put in the last name to see all the listings. The first row of hebrew reads "here lies" the last line is an abbreviation of a verse from the Bible, the first book of Samuel, 25:29, "may his soul be bound up in the bond of eternal life". I hope that helps!

Hi there - I will be happy to take your photo request at Mt. Glenwood, but you will need to get the grave locations for me from their main office in Glenwood. The Willow Springs cemetery does not have an office onsite and there are only one or two groundskeepers there daily. Thanks...

RE: Friedrich Hohmeyer
There is writing on three sides of the monument.The major group are the Ahrens and it looks like another name is Munn.
The monument writing was actually easier to see in the pics than it was in person.When I was looking at it I had a hard time finding the name Homeyer.
Next time out I will do the old paper rub and see if I can figure out what is written.
I have the pics of the other two sides where there are names.If you'd like I will send them to you.
