On 5/29/2014, you posted a photo of an eagle emblem representing the Knights of the Golden Eagle. May I ask what documentation you have which indicates that this person was a member of that organization? If you do have such information, you may add it to the 'Caption' section of the photo.

Thank you

RE: Memorial # 115881398 George Bambling
Hi Kim, Not to worry, but thanks for your reply. I think that must be George (father of John George) buried in Jeddo. Looks from census records that both John George and his sister Dorothy Browell lived in Jeddo, then later Hopewell. Many thanks, and regards, Hilary.

Memorial # 115881398 George Bambling
Hi Kim,

I am trying to look at the Bambling family and have found another Find-A-Grave entry for a George Bambling who died 1883 in Jeddo, PA. Wondering what the records say, as son John George is definitely in Hopewell (pic of stone there), but wondering perhaps if it is just his son, and is wife Margaret Burn Bambling definitely there? The newspaper clip of mining death at Jeddo definitely fits with George as he was a miner, and he was nearby to Jeddo in Foster at the 1880 census. Those Bamblings weave a tangled web. Hoping you can help. With many thanks, and regards,
Hilary Tait

Earl McDonald

I am researching a Earl McDonald in 1940 living with my grandmother Edith Horton b 1902 was listed as married and head of household.

Her 1st husband was Howard Horton
Her last husband was Edgar Layton. m 1947

Earl was born abt 1901 per census could he be her 2nd husband?

do you have any information on this household

also living there were her 2 children Mary and Winfred.

They were living in East Providence Twp, Bedford Cty, PA

thank you

RE: Ruth McDonald Kardos
Sorry, I am not related to either Ruth or her husband.

Five minutes ago, I updated both of their memorial pages to include what information I could find (obituary/death notice/nickname, etc.)

You could try calling the funeral home (number listed on their memorial pages).

Have another great day,
Ed Ross

RE: Karns Family Inquiry
I have many Karns in my direct family history, however I am a tombstone reporter, do not do genealogy with other people. All my Karns, which include one Philip, lead directly to Germany. Many came in at Philadelphia, went to Berks County, then to Bedford. Look in the Bavarian region,especially. Most of the families rooted in the Everett area of Bedford County have a German heritage, both Catholic Germans who came to escape Protestant persecution, and Protestant who came to escape Catholic persecution. There are many name variations of Karns, try not to get hung up on Karns only. Also many are of the Brethren faith, followed the trail west to Ohio. Look for the naming patterns, they follow traditional German patterns. The records at St. Thomas the Apostle in Bedford have many of the Catholic Germans, and as said, the Protestants are mainly Brethren. Try the Bedford County Historical Society, I have spent many hours there. Sorry not to help more, but frankly I just don't do genealogy. Good luck in your search.

Emma B Karns Ritchey 12744111
Kim, Congratulations!! I had twins. Sit back and take it easy, put your feet up. You don't want them early. I added the photo to David and Emma's memorials. I sent request to link 3 of their 4 children. I can't find any info on Grave V. I also have a photo of Maude Morgan (Rickle) with these. I don't know if she is connected. I haven't researched her, yet. I think the Ritchey's may link to my neighbors in Tatesville, Jessie Ritchey Border and/or George & Goldie. My GGGrands were Karns. I haven't figured them out yet. Good luck!!

Hello Kim, I found a photo today in my mother's collection of papers. It is the exact photo you have for Elizabeth Young. My photo has the name Bertha Young on the back. Are you sure your photo is Elizabeth and not Bertha Young? I have no idea. It was with a photo of Emma & David Ritchey's children, Aldie, Lily, Grace & Paul Ritchey. Are you familiar with the family? There was also a photo of Levi H and Emma (Martha Emma) Shaffer. I added the photo to their memorials in Indiana County, PA. I don't recognize any of these persons. Mary
