Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my ancestry for about 20 years. My parents, grandparents, great grandparents, and 15 of my 16 GG grandparents were born and lived in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I no longer live in PA, but have visited and photographed some of the tombstones in cemeteries in Lancaster County.

Sarah Louisa Clemson
Hello Kathy,
I was just researching Sarah today and found online a bio of her son Harry Ellis Clemson, in which it states that he is the son of Oliver P. Clemson and Sarah Rea.

Sarah Louisa Rea was the daughter of John Franklin Rea and Catherine (last name as yet unknown). She married Francis Marion Wilson in 1857, he died in 1863 and she then married Oliver in 1869.

RE: Sarah L Clemson
Hi Kathy,
No, it doesn't mention that she was the wife of Oliver Clemson. When I found the marriage information on, I added it to her memorial. You can let me know if it should be changed. Thanks! Dee

RE: Sarah L Clemson
PA & NJ Church and Town Records, 1708-1985 (Ancestry,com) has a marriage listed for Oliver P. Clemson and Louisa Wilson in Phila. on 28, Jan 1869. If this is incorrect, please send me a note and I'll correct it. Dee

RE: Bessie Mast Philips
Hello again. I am related to Abraham Lincoln Mast in the Abraham Mast and Sarah Myers family. I have done a lot with both families and have run into a problem getting the link for Mary Mast Dague fixed. The manager who is not a Mast will not correct it.
However, it is nice to finally connect with someone who has a common genealogy. I have not been able to do so until now. There are a lot of names that appear in our ancestry. The Myers family has existed in PA for as long as the Mast's. Apparently, our ancestor, Jacob was the first distinct break from Amish since he and his sister, Elizabeth who married a Reeser, stayed in PA while the rest of the family moved to Holmes County in Ohio. I have been able to link to them thanks to find a grave.

Best Wishes
Fred Mast, III g grandson of AL Mast

Bessie Mast Philips
I just came across a memorial containing a note from you about her and that you are related.
I am not sure how much you know about the rest of her family, but I am the great grandson of her older brother, Abraham Lincoln Mast. I have been working on linking all of the siblings to the parents, Abraham Mast and Sarah Myers (Mast). I have run into a road block with a sister in this family named Mary Mast Dague.
I was just wondering if you have any information on this complete family so I can get verification of my records. There is a memorial for Mary 16726566 which has her linked to parents incorrectly and also lists incorrect siblings.

Hope you have additional records on Bessie's family that match mine.

Would you like Doris and John transferred to you? If yes, use the edit tab. I can't transfer Nellie. I didn't create her memorial.

Glad to help and sorry it took me so long to get out there... Stanley and Alberta Szydlo are also listed on Find-A-Grave as being buried at Mater Dolorosa but the office has no record of their burial. The office did tell me that there is a record for Marcin and Jozefa but there is no location indicated. She found Walter and Stanislawa and I added Stanislawa but I couldn't find a marker for Walter. I did find Walter's obituary. If you'd like me to transfer Stella to you, let me know. I can also retrace my steps, save the obit I found and post it on the memorial that just appeared!

Did Walter live on High St in Holyoke??? I found a newspaper article referencing "Walter Sydlo, 43 of 80 High St...." I can send that article to you if you'd like but it's not something that should go up on F-A-G! There are a few other articles I'd be happy to send to you if you'd like them.
