Garrett Hill - Middletown NJ
I just received a photo request for James Ashton in Garrett Hill. According to Find A Grave it is a virtual cemetery created by you. Is it an actual physical location? I live in Middletown and know of no cemetery by that name. Could you send me the location? Rick Jones

James Perry Beall 1904
You need to look at the memorial for Mr Beall and check the obituary found in Crawford County records stating that James Perry Beall's father was Comodor Beall .. .??
I'm not related, just adding obits -- saw some conflicting data & thought you would be interested.

The right Mattern...
Hi Sandra,

I'm looking for a way to make sure I have the correct lineage - My mother-in-law was a Mattern. I have traced this line back, and am now running into the "Mottern"s. Before I go any further, I'd like to make sure I have the right people.

Would you be able to help? I have a SoR application from 1957 that briefly explains the surname change, but to me that seems like "Mottern" would continue and the "Mattern" would disappear.

Please let me know if you are able to help - if possible, I'd love to run a list of names by you or even double check a tree if you're on Ancestry.

Thank you!

I'm making myself confused - It IS a dup of 34971732. The problem is the spelling; Van Schoonoven vs Van Schoonover.

I'm mistaken - one is the son.

Are you related to anyone descended from Samuel Holmes #93482990 & Mary Holmes #93482789? I just added Natalie Holmes as a daughter.

RE: Cahill
Philip E. Cahill, and Mary Maguire,(McGuire)? My sister, and I are just into genealogy. My family had a lot of pictures, and documents, letters, etc. I have also met some awesome cousins on genealogy sites and gotten very good copies of records, photos, etc. I keep pretty busy. I have 3 sons 2,4,6. I don't get a lot of time to do genealogy but if you give me a little more information I can send you some emails with what info I have. What child of Philip E. Cahill, and Mary McGuire are you descended from? Thanks. Daniel
