Bio Photo I am originally from Indiana and was always delighted by the stories my grandparents would tell about our ancestry. I finally began my search and years later I have gathered many details, some better documented than others, and met numerous cousins.

James Arthur Bitner
Hi David,

I came across your name on find a grave on the page for James Arthur Bitner. Iím not sure if Iím related, so I have an odd request. Iím using DNA to try and find my grandmotherís birth parents. She was left in an Indianapolis orphanage in 1906, shortly after her birth I believe. I have a DNA match with Gates in their tree and if I trace it down from a John and Mary (Weaver) Gates I come to a Rebecca Gates who married a Stephen Bitner, then onto DaytonH Bitner and down to his children. Again, Iím not sure if there is any relation, but the one picture I can find a James A. Bitner on ancestry is him wearing a hat covering most of his face. Itís not a great picture but his nose reminds me of my grandmothers. I know, not much to go on, but the paper trail is done for me. No history of fire or flood at the Marion Co, IN courthouse but no one can locate my grandmotherís adoption record, and even though it supposedly open, they wonít let me research the records in person. Iíve tried.

Good morning! My name is Allison Sachs Smith and I think I may be descended from Leonard and Eva Seitz who came over from Germany. I noticed your last name was Seitz and was wondering if you had done any research. I'd love to compare notes if you found anything!

RE: finding the cemetery
Hi David,

Yes, the cemetery is off the road about 10-20 yards in a wooded area between two homes (the county considers the property abandoned). The address 8042 Greenwich Rd, Catlett, Fauquier County, Virginia 20119 doesn't actually exist (I made-up the number based on the street addresses of the homes to the left and the right) but a GPS devise or Google Maps would put that address right at the cemetery. I posted a couple more images today showing the relation of the cemetery to the road and nearby fence. There's lots of poison ivy back there, so be careful; after the first hard frost I'll head back and take a closer look for gravestones that have fallen over and been covered by growth.

These GPS Coordinates, Latitude: 38.70623, Longitude: -77.66584, will put your right onto the gravestone.,+-77.66584

Good luck and God bless,

RE: John Seitz
Sorry, don't know anything about your family. Memorials were entered from some old notebooks that my sister and I filled out while walking cemeteries in Dearborn County over 50 years ago. Back then photographs were dear in price, so we did a lot of handwriting of the records while we searched for our great-great-grandmother. Not like today when I can walk a cemetery with my digital camera in hand, snapping photos without a care!

If you would like the transfer of your great grandfather, I'd be happy to give him to you.
