|Dave Williams||Are Kriners of German Ancestry?|
Hi, Beth...George David Williams here. Now retired in NC, but grew up in Hagerstown, MD, and beginning to investigate my ancestry. Was raised in Salem Reformed Church, and recognized the "Williams" headstone from their cemetery. Jonathan Jacob Williams was my great-grandfather, and he was married to Annie May Kriner. (suppose that may make us "Great Cousins" or so? And while I can trace the Williams side of my family back to ASA Williams in the late 1700's, I can't trace Annie May Kriner beyond her father George Kriner.
So I am curious if, given the spelling of the name, "Kriners" immigrated here from Germany (as the "Newcomer" side of my family did -- which I have traced back to 1552.) Especially of interest since I just did the Ancestry.com DNA and was surprised to find I'm much more German than Welsh! Any event, my first acquaintance with this site, and it's VERY helpful, and compliments to those who participate. Hope you don't mind my getting in touch, and all best, Dave
|Steve Dowlan||Information about Christian Dowlan family?|
I found the obits you posted for Margaret Kriner, Charlotte Kriner and George Dowling. George's father, Chrsitian, is my fourth great graandfather. Do you have any more information about Christian's family? I have all of hte publicly available articles about the Bourne cabin, but I don't think I have all of his many children. I'm specifically looking for a connection to Wallace Dowlin of the Waynesboro area, who I believe is my fourth great uncle, assuming he is the child of Christian Dowlan. Thanks in advance!

Hi Beth, good work! I have made the cemetery correction. Do you know if Uncle Art is also buried at Parklawns? (My Mom and Dad are there too, along side Uncle Clyde and Aunt Cressa). S Poole
|Mary E P||Pisarowitz family|
Hello Beth, I am linking the family together. I found another deceased relative on Findagrave, in Prague, Cz Rep. If you do a search on just the last name and put in Czech Republic, 4 memorials appear, so our tree is growing! Best to you and your family.

I think Mary is very interesting. There were quite a few Hemphill people in Franklin County, including my ancestors.
Franklin County was formed out of Cumberland County in abt 1784, so it was one of the newer Pennsylvania Counties.
I have some Wills from Franklin County, maybe two books of them.
I had an Andrew Hemphill in that area and his brother, John Hemphill. We don't know what happened to John. He sold his half of the farm he had in Lurgan Twp. to Andrew and went somewhere. He may have been injured in the Revolutionary War. There is a roomer that he may have gone back to some county to teach school.
He might have been an ancestor to Mary.
However, there were other Hemphills in the area too.
If I were you, I would try to find ALL of Mary's children, and see who else is there.
There were some Hemphills who went south.
