All the people I record are my family with the exception of Dateland Fort in Arizona where an entire regiment were killed by the Indians. Recording that one was my pleasure. I also recorded Bethel Cemetery, DeKalb Co., Missouri as most of my mothers family are there. I kept only mine.

PLEASE, WHEN FAG WROTE THE GUIDELINES FOR TRANSFERS, THEY COULD NOT THINK OF EVERYTHING. THE MEMORIALS ARE FOR THE D.E.A.D. AND NOT FOR OURSELVES. THEY ARE TO HONOR THEM SO, WHEN ASK, I TRY TO CONSIDER IF THE OTHER PERSON HAS MORE TO GIVE TO THE MEMORIAL AND GO FROM THERE. I DO TRANSFERS QUITE A BIT AND WILL CONSIDER ANY REQUEST.
Not of course due to anything I did or deserved, I am proud that I have 15 direct Grandfathers that served in the Rev.War:
APPLE-Johann Martin 1752-1810 Pa.
BERGER-Michael 1736-1794 Virginia
CAIN-Daniel 1747-1851 Virginia

COTTER-James 1740-1816 S.Carolina
DEPPEN-Christian 1705-1781 Pa.
DITTEMORE-John Hartman 1735-1782 Massachusetts
HETZEL-Johann Peter Hetzel 1742-1810 Pa.
McNEESE-William Isiah 1730-1808 Tennessee
NEHS-Michael Jr. 1730-1815 Virginia
PAMPHILLION-Thomas 1714-1789 (Patriot)
SCHNEPP-Joseph 1733-1786 (Patriot)
SCHNEPP-Leonard 1753-1825 Pa.
STRAUB-Andreas Matteis 1735-1805 Pa.
WEAVER-Johann Enoch 1725-1806 Pa.
YEAKLEY-George 1738-1884 Pa.

George Yeakley was son inlaw to Christian Deppen.

MY QUAKER ANCESTORS WHO CAME ON SHIPS WITH WILLIAM PENN:
Giles Knight "Society of Bristol" 1682 & wife Mary English
Joseph English "Society of Bristol" 1682-Marys father
David Fairbanks & wife Ann
Thomas Paschall "Society of Bristol" 1682 & wife Joanna Sloper
Thomas M. Paschall "Society of Bristol"
Wiliam Troth & wife Isabelle Harrison
Charles Plumley & Margarey Page bef. 1682
"Society of Bristol"
William Plumley & Elizabeth Thompson bef. 1682
"Society of Bristol"
(it is possible that they all were on the "Society" and stuck together after the trip. I marked the ones that for sure were on the Society. All were my ancestors)
The "Society of Bristol" belonged to William Penn.
THE GIFT OF LIFE,A PRECIOUS GIFT, WE MORTALS TAKE FOR GRANTED, AND THOSE DEAR ONES WE LOVE SO MUCH IN OUR MEMORIES ARE IMPLANTED.
SO WE PASS OUR MEMORIES DOWN TO THOSE WE LEAVE BEHIND, AND TELL THEM OF OUR EARTHLY LOVE FOR THOSE WHO'VE BEEN SO KIND.
WE THINK OF THOSE BEFORE US, AS WE'RE STROLLING DOWN LIFE'S LANE, A DROP OF LOVE FROM EACH OF THEM FLOWS WARMLY THROUGH OUR VEINS.
THEY FOUGHT SO GALLANTLY IN WAR, BRAVELY SETTLED NEW FRONTIERS, TO MAKE OUR LAND A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE IN LATER YEARS.
OH YES! LIKE US, THEY MADE MISTAKES, AND SOMETIMES DELIBERATELY. ONCE THEY WERE YOUNG AND HUMAN, JUST LIKE YOU AND ME.
WHILE WANDERING THROUGH THE LIVES FROM WHOM WE HAVE BEGOTTEN, OUR OWN LIFE STORY COMES TO MIND. LEST WE TOO, BE FORGOTTEN.
AND WHEN OUR DAYS ARE OVER, OUR TIME ON EARTH IS SERVED, MAY OUR LIVES BE REMEMBERED, OUR MEMORIES BE PRESERVED.
ARRIVING AT THE PEARLY GATES, THE GOOD LORD SHOWS US IN. AND THEN HE TURNS TO US AND SAYS,
"PLEASE , MEET YOUR EARLY KIN."
DO WE LOWER OUR EYES AND DROP OUR HEADS, AND SAY TO HIM IN SHAME, "I'M SORRY SIR, IN MY MORTAL LIFE I NEVER HEARD YOUR NAME."
BUT NO! WE'LL RAISE OUR CHINS UP HIGH TO MEET HIS STEADY GAZE, AND SAY, "OH YES! I KNOW YOU FROM YOUR EARLY DAYS."
SOME WROTE THE STORY OF HOW YOU LIVED YOUR LIFE, OF HAPPINESS AND JOY, AND YES,SOMETIMES OF STRIFE.
MAY THE STORY OF LIFE CONTINUE OF THE OLDER ONES SO WISE, AS DESCENDANTS ARRIVE IN HEAVEN, OUR NAMES THEY'LL RECOGNIZE.
(Guess which ones we will be. And we have fun doing this too!!!)
