Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the 1980's I started researching my Linn ancestors (without benefit of computer) but got busy with my sons' activities and put it on hold. In 1999 a cousin got me involved with my Steinberg ancestors and I have been going full speed ahead ever since.

Upon graduating from the University of Illinois my father obtained employment in the State of Washington, far from any relatives. My ancestors (after entering the USA)settled in Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Montana, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New Jersey - I want to experience first hand where and how they lived so I travel the country obtaining data, meeting people, seeing the sights and tramping cemeteries. I missed the "cousin experience" growing up and think that is why I enjoy genealogy so much -- meeting new cousins (who cares if they are 1st or 10th cousins)and sharing our family histories.

I am researching Linn, Gibson, Weir, Scott, Polk, Steinberg, Koerner, Mitten, Bennett, Switzer (Swisher), Slonaker, Shaw, Goff, Townsend, McCarty and Whitehead, Miller, Schroen, Glabe, Schafer/Schaefer/Shafer. I am also reseaching Dishon, Deshon, DeShon, Deschamps and Herrold for my two sons.

RE: Memorial# 14204647 Jacob Hess
Hello. According to the article at http://files.usgwarchives.net/pa/columbia/cemeteries/old-ge-cem.txt
"While the work is being done on the cemetery, the building committee of the school board is going over plans for the new high school building..."
Apparently, the cemetery was moved from First & Center Sts. in the town of Bloomsburg to make room for the new school.
The photo of the "cemetery" you see on the Find-A-Grave memorials for the Old Lutheran Cemetery - aka the Old German Burial Ground - was taken and posted by another member but it shows the current location of the graves that were moved. They can be found at the back of the New Rosemont Cemetery in a section by themselves - well removed from the main cemetery. Hope this helps.

RE: Emerick
Jan,

It is your memorial and you can do what you prefer. It is a 22 year old obit and survivor information is not compromised. I would transcribe it for you to copy and paste into the bio, but I don't type well and it would take a lot of time. The source information is in the caption. You can copy and paste it into the biography. That will alert Ancestry that a biography is available on the memorial. Some members object to obituary images and also refuse to transcribe the information into a biography. Some have deleted memorials and created new ones to get rid of images. Old obituaries are useful tools and I have found information in them that is not available on websites.--Storres

RE: Lola Aikeley McLeod
Jan,

I have ongoing problems with my internet service provider and Internet Explorer. My edit is to add Thomas Gallagher 1893-1918 as first spouse. The system probably deleted the links to her parents resulting in the unknown. Her parents should remain the same. I was not certain about the first marriage to Thomas Gallagher until their marriage application appeared in a search.--Storres
