RE: Van Pelt Family
Hi Brenda,

Yes I have pictures of Martha as well as Gilbert. Send me your private email address and I'll be glad to email you copies of them. Unfortunately I have no document supported lineage on Martha beyond her or her brothers. I have visited her grave a number of times just outside of New Athens. I remember my grandmother, Lemuel's wife Ella, speak of a possible relationship through the Todd line in Kentucky winding up at Abraham Lincoln's wife Mary, who was a Todd. Seems our Todd lineage was from the same town/area in Kentucky that Mary Todd Lincoln hailed from. I've never researched it but do find it fascinating. is a good address for me so drop me yours and I'll start digging through my digital archive and send you what I have. Good to meet you.

What did you mean with this story? You fought for the country and were a true pioneer only to be bulldozed into the river. RIP
Thank you Linda

Rev. Nathan Winters
I saw the note you left with the flowers on Rev. Nathan Winters gravesite here. Rev. Winters is my 4th Great Grandfather, and I was hoping you could tell me the story about the sword that you mentioned. I would like to know more about the family if you know more. My grandfather was Ronnie Winters, who was a pilot during the Korean War and died in 1958 in a plane crash, so I know almost nothing about the Winters side of the family. Thanks!

RE: Hawkins-Settle Cemetery
That has been a few years ago and we came from the other direction a long way. I remember we ran into someone who pointed us in the right direction. There is not much there, but we photographed and posted all the stones we found with inscriptions. If you send your email address I will send you a copy of the photo layout (pdf file) we added to the local and state library.

I encourage you to join the Mayflower Society if you can prove through documentation that you are BLOOD related to Wm Bradford. I've done it. I'm related to TWO of the original Mayflower pilgrims.

I can't make any changes as I did none of the memorials. I did ask for a change in Darlene to Darling and asked to connect Neal to his parents.
Let me know if there is a problem

Lieut. Col. Winters

While taking photos at my local Cemetery I took one of Corp George Herr. His grave is not listed in Findagrave so while adding it and doing research to also include his birth and death dates I found his service records on Ancestry. Also included was two after action reports and one was written by Lieut Col Winters himself. I added them to George Herr's page and just informing you of this in case you wanted to read or copy it. Winter's report is the last article in the Bio. I also googled the 59th and found a timeline for the regiment which I included.

I decided to add links of his commander's memorials to his bio which is how I ran across your Winter's page. Just thought since you had photo of him and such a complete history that you might be a relative and would like to see his report and feel free to copy it. He was quite a leader and I enjoyed learning about that piece of history.

I am not a relative of George Herr, I just want to honor the vets. I have located the Gt.Granddaugher of George on Ancestry and will be transferring the memorial to her to care for.

George Herr's memorial is: # 101499436

Thank you for your time,
Margaret Ballinger

Tried to e-mail their tombstone pictures, but it won't go through. Thought you might like them for your own family history records.

I put a small happy face balloon with a lei dangling so you can find her. If you follow the road fence line it's near the area before the first dip on the right. Please leave the balloon and I will put it on a child's grave there.
