RE: George and Mary Litz-Hess
Debbie: You are welcome, this is great fun for me. One interesting thing to note is that George Hess and Mary Litz were first cousins.

Will keep You posted when there are major new finds.

Regards - Tom

George and Mary Litz-Hess
Debbie: Wanted to let You know that in the last few days we have been able to add George Hess and Mary Litz-Hess and family in the Stoneville Cemetery complete with stone photo's.

The only missing child is Sophia Jane Hess-Lippart, who we are trying to locate where her and John Lippart were interred.

You can go to George (103741015) or Mary (112107709) = note dates of birth have been able to be derived.

RE: Hess
Debbie: You are very welcome - it is a pleasure to see families linked together. Checked my tree and we are 5th Cousins 1x removed. A rather distant relationship - My tie to the Litz family is like this

David Litz - 4th Great Grandfather
Abraham Litz = 3rd Great Grandfather
Abram Litz - GG Grandfather
Charlotte Litz-Merritt - G Grandmother
Frances Grey Merritt-Schoening - Grandmother

To date we have linked about 300 direct descendents to David Litz (this does not include spouses) and well over another 200 who are not directly linked (Your family is in the later group). The "Hess" family as a subset is very large and as You already know there were atleast two other lines of Hess's in Clearfield that do not tie to Abraham Hess and we have even taken time to link them in order to eliminate future confusion.

Yes I am very interested in any information that You have. First hand information from direct family members is the best. Will be back in contact with You in the next week or so with some specific questions. Thank You for Your willingness to help.
