Mary Margaret Evans Coulson #94338407
Hi, Nicole,

Thank you for making the memorial for my 8th great grandmother. It is exciting to find information about people who lived before 1776.

Would you be so kind as to share how you found Mary Margaret's birth information?

There is a letter written in 1930 that has been shared on some family trees on ancestry. It states the following:
"In Ashbourn Derbyshire England we find an attractive young couple, Joseph Coulson and Margaret Evans. There were born about 1669 and 1675 and married about 1700. They sailed for America after their son Thomas was born 1703, settling in Germantown..."

There is also on ancestry a source from London church records that gives Morgan & Mary Evans as the parents of a Margaret Evans, who was baptized 2 Nov 1668 in St. Saviour in Surrey, England.

So the letter states Margaret was born about 1675, and the church record says 1668 or earlier. I tend to favor Ashbourn, Derbyshire, because Joseph's parents were from Hartshorne, Derbyshire.

I look forward to hearing what you have learned and what you think of these sources.

Marie Anna Shultz Rinker
Hi Nicole,

The information on the memorial for Maria Anna Shultz Rinker lists her date of birth as 1730 and her date of death as 1826. Her age at death is listed as 90 years old. However this age at death doesn't correspond with her birth and death dates. Is there an explanation for this or is there just a typo here?
I have her name as Anna Marie Schultz Rinker. Do you have or have you seen documents that would clear this up?
I am also the 5th g-grandson of Anna Marie Schultz Rinker but have no documents for her. I have just taken other relatives information.

Hi, Nicole,
I am so excited to see this memorial! Did you actually see the tombstone or did you read somewhere that she was buried near her husband?

Do you live near the cemetery? If so, can you take a photo of the tombstone and upload it to the memorial?

Talk to you soon,

New England Cemetery McDonalds'
Almost forgot... I work about 20 miles from this cemetery and live about 30 miles from it. At its peak in 1850-1860, New England had about 60 houses in town; now maybe only 15-20 are there - its mostly rolling farm land around that area and very remote. Although I know some McDonald's, none are from that area. Sorry I couldn't help.

RE: John J. McDonald Photo
Hi Nicole -

Yes, there are 3 other McDonald's I found in the cemetery. Two are on each side of his headstone (they appear to be his two wives) and another McDonald two spaces to the left of his headstone. If you would please create the memorials with their information below and make the photo requests, I would be glad to post them. Here's the info:

Rebecca Jane (Tidd) McDonald
DOB - June 23, 1844
DOD - Dec. 2, 1885

Elizabeth Jane (Tedrow) McDonald
DOB - Apr. 13, 1852
DOD - Apr. 19, 1895

Sampson Alonzo McDonald
DOB - Feb. 13, 1871

Thanx - Jim

Hello Nicole,

I am doing some McGrew family research for a friend of mine. It appears that she also has both James and Finley as grandfathers on different branches of her family. I would love it if you could contact me at to compare research and see if the two of you may be related. Thanks!

Samuel Knisely
Hello! I'm going to give you my email address so I can copy and paste the transcription of the 1844 jail paper for John Knisely that I found. It was on ebay, so I transcribed it, researched it, and told the descendants of John's illegitimate daughter about it. One of them ended up buying it. I had a copy of it saved on my computer, but this was years ago, and I don't know what happened to it. I think I've probably changed computers twice since then.

Is the Glen Knisely you're talking about, Donna's husband? Donna's my Grandpa's first cousin. My maiden name is Shumaker, and Donna's also a Shumaker. Are you from Ohio? I was born in Crawford County, and my dad was raised in North Robinson. Anyway, here's my email address:

I look forward to hearing from you!

Samuel Knisely
So glad to hear from you :) Were the photos passed down to you through your family? The furthest back photo I have of this line was Samuel and Sarah's granddaughter, Alice Magers, if you're interested.

Also I wanted to let you know that there's a typo on the photo caption of Samuel Knisely... you wrote he was born in 1822 in New Philadelphia, and he was actually born 1784 (or maybe 1782) in Pennsylvania. He moved to Ohio as a young man when his dad came and settled New Philadelphia. Your ancestor, John Knisely, was born in 1822, and he was born in New Phila. He died in 1887. Are the photos of John and his wife perhaps rather than Samuel and Sarah?

Also, did you get my second message that was about John's illegitimate daughter? I tried to send you a message a few days ago but the message was intercepted by filters that thought I was spamming you.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Nathan McGrew
Nathan McGrew had a son James but I researched that he married someone else. That James had a son Finley who died in his 70's and my James had a son Finley that family legend passed down as dying young. Many researchers list Nahan but I do not accept this listing. I doubt that we will know as the courthouse burnt down. Just to many James McGrew. Amelia's will was probated in Monroe Co. Thanks for ALL your efforts.
