Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since 2001. I have added both family and non family members. Any additions or corrections are greatly appreciated. I have also added people that had both positive and negative contributions to society as well as some that were just caught up in events that they couldn't control. I feel we can learn from their mistakes as well as their accomplishments. Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.- George Santayana

I like to do corrections so send me what you have, preferably using the edit tab located on the upper right hand corner of each memorial. I want the memorials to be as complete as possible. Due to time constraints I don't always reply but I will do them within the 30 day period.

Note: As of 2/23/17 I should be all caught up with corrections. Please resubmit any that I may have missed updating the memorial.

RE: Maggie Lit
She was an amazing woman who left us too soon.

My Itty Bitty Kitty was the father of her cat's kittens. For the life of me, I can't recall her cat's name, but she loved it like a child.

When my husband and I divorced, I re-homed all my cats but one--Madeleine, called Maggie, who I had named in her honor.

After that, I was busy with a brand new baby, and Hy took all of Maggie's time, so we fell out of touch.

I was stunned to learn of her death, and I want her to be remembered. I will never forget how kind and good she was.

Cheery Hello!

I am quite excited to hear that you are part of the McIlroy family through the Streets. We are cousins through marriage! What a delight meeting you!

Thanks for the 'heads up' with the parents.

Always a delight to meet family!

Jacob Sibley's memorial
Hi: Thank you so much for adding more information on Mr. Sibley's memorial
It is such a shame that this happens. Sometimes I wonder if a person who ends their own life just can't see that nothing lasts forever, not even bad times.
Such a tragedy for his family. I'm sure that they did everything they could for him.

Take care.

Jacob Sibley's memorial
Hi: I noticed that you entered information for Jacob Sibley and I wanted you to know that there is a lot of information about him in the Philadelphia Inquirer on Sunday, May 28.
His burial was today. I don't know if you want to put some more detail in your memorial to him.
I did leave a token on his memorial.
