Info on John Andrews Neighbors. 1824-1862
Hello, my name is Debbie Thomas and I am trying to get information about my ancestor John Andrew Neighbors 1824-1862. You listed find a grave information for him #6686143. I realize it has been quite awhile but wondered if you had any other information other then what you listed. My great-great grandmother was the last to see her father alive when she was 7 years old. He had visited his family and then left to return to his unit during the civil war. He had forgotten his Bible and she was sent after him to give it to him. He died soon after that incident and the family did not know where he was buried. I contacted the cemetery you listed, and they were unable to actually find the grave or any marker and said that they did not have a record of the early burials. I am going to Arkansas to visit other ancestor graves in about 10 days and thought to go to the Old Austin Cemetery if I could find information. Thanks for any help you can give. Also thanks so much for the service that you do in providing this information for families.

RE: Could we be related ????
So sorry. But I 'totally' missed your last remark, until I was on here for someone else, and just now happened to see it. So sorry that I haven't responded until now, but didn't see it. Yes, I too agree, that my mother and one of our family's relatives 'should' be that 'missing-link' to the information from the family that we could-be/are related, and it would be me anyway, it would be you. I think it would be great if we ended up cousins. FANTASTIC actually.

Best Wishes; and lets keep working TOGETHER on it, who knows where we'll end up. LOL. :).

Blessings; {and hopefully, cousins};

Could we be related ????
Hi there Mr. Benz;

My name is Sharon K. (Wasner) Harshman, and my (adopted mother - father's side)is connected to the Bischoff AND Benz lines. I am doing the lines, and tonight came across your page on F.A.G.. and so I think we may be related to her.

I am just curious as to how you are related to them, and where are your names coming from?
My mother, is still living, we lost my dad on March 30, of last month, and just buried him in Florida on Friday. :(.

I don't see the name (at least I don't find),that it is all that common, so it's interesting to me to see someone else who is also researching it, that I've never come across before now, since I've been a member on F.A.G. for more than 3 years now, and a member of, even longer.

My mother father's name was Jesse Gilbert Bischoff, and his parent's were Fred and Anna J. (Bauer) Bischoff, and it was Fred's parent's where the Benz comes in at, with Fred's parent's being: Charles Phillip Bischoff and Christina (Benz).

Do any of these names sound familiar to you at all, and if so, would you please let me know how, and if they are connected to your line.

Thanks for reading this. And I will wait to hear back from you.

I do have a tree on Ancestry, under the name: Bischoff F.T. / Owner: sharonharsh1, in case you want to look at it.

Blessings,and Happy Hunting;

Sharon K. (Wasner) Harshman

I just started doing some research on my family's history and ran across some of your info. John Bernardi was my great-grandfather. I never knew him but knew my grandfather Leo very well. Thanks for what you've done so far and hope you are feeling better!
