Grandmother Althea
My Grandmother is Ruth Dorothy Garlitz... one of the daughters of Nancy "Newcomer" Garlitz. I visited my 95 year old father two weeks ago and have been going through the old photo's that I brought home.

Perhaps it was a holiday trip to Michigan??? perhaps it isn't her, but certainly looks like her. I will send the first photo with the three ladies on the porch to your email account and we can go from there.

Grandmother Althea
Hey Walt -

I believe that I have three photo's of your grandmother but unfortunately the only thing written on the back of one of them is "Taken in Michigan - 1942". I would like your help in identifying the other two ladies standing with your grandmother on the porch of a house... possibly her mother and sister??? as well as confirming ID of the others... Up for a challenge?

Zimmermans of PA
Hi Walter,

My name is Shirley and I saw that you posted some pictures and information regarding the Zimmermans of PA. They are an unknown part of my family and if possible, I am interested in learning more.

I will try to contact you via the email address you have listed. But you can also contact me here. I look forward to hearing from you.

RE: Thank you and hello again!
Thank you! Do you want me to transfer the Zimmerman memorials to you? I'd love to see more photos.

Thank you and hello again!
Walt, thank you for adding the photo of Lindley & Mary Jane Newcomer's headstone. And what a beautiful photo of Althea Zimmerman. Your name is familiar...we corresponded back in 2001 when I was just starting my family tree! I was Carrie Booth back then. You even sent me a book about Nathan Bedford Forrest. It's nice to "see" you again. I feel like you must have sent me the Civil War military report long ago, but I'll be darned if I can find it. (I'm much more organized now!) I'd love to read it again...could you e-mail it to me? I'll send you an e-mail.
