Hello,
Glad to meet you. Use the Edit Tab and provide in the Other Suggestions Tab the Citation(s), facts, supporting your Edit suggestion.
Thank you.

This is a journey. Listen to the stories they have.

I am on call for memorial photos. I am available to assist.

My Tribute for my Mom, Patricia Helen Knapp Hetzler are entries for Church of the Incarnation Memorial Garden to honor the departed souls and their families, friends, and parishioners. Over 1,260 Memorials were created including photos and family links for many. The additions were completed Dec 7, 2016. Thank you, Christina, for assistance. Update edits are always welcome.

Veterans, thank you for your service. Open my flag and you will see what relatives I found.

This site has been great, as I seem to make new friends and meet many cousins that I may have not known otherwise.

A brief detour about ancestors discovered and learned. They are immigrants, settlers, innovators, leaders, farmers, shoemakers, plumbers, cattle ranchers, horse brokers, locomotive engineers, planners, household mothers and fathers, stone masons, iron workers, foundry owners, grocers, merchants, infants, tailors, molders, ice merchants, engineers, builders, developers, realtors, Priests, ministers, deliverymen, cabinetmakers.

Unknowingly, I lived places ancestors had previously settled. A 3rd Great grandfather had emigrated from Bavaria, Germany to Rochester, N. Y., where I was born. Another 3rd Great grandfather emigrated from Saarland Germany to Steuben County, N.Y., near where I went to college. A 6th Great grandfather lived and died in Addison, Vermont, 35 miles line of sight from where our three children were born and raised in Brookfield, VT. My 10th Great grandfather settled Stamford prior to 1680.

Even now, where I live in the Carolinas, I learn of a Grand Aunt having lived in Hendersonville, nearer our present home in the Carolinas.

The education continues with military heroics. Learning a 7th Great grandfather was KIA on board on Lake Erie during the French and Indian War in 1756, seeing many ancestors with service in the Revolutionary War. A 5th Great grand uncle, Joseph Turner, a Revolutionary War Veteran is buried in Fort Ann, NY at the Blossom Farm Cemetery. More, reviewing ancestors pension papers for the War of 1812.

Reading service records of 2nd Great grandfather who served in the the Civil War. Hearing from a Great niece of his who has the sabre he used. The opportunity to hold a Great grandfather's military discharge orders from the Spanish American War. Opportunity to read commendations of a Father-In-Law's service in WW II during his 4 years and 4 months service from Northern Africa through Italy and finishes the campaign in Eastern Germany. Meeting a cousin whose Uncle served WW I and WWII as a Medical Doctor. Learning of the citations of ancestors received during the Korean War. Not to ignore recent military heroes.

When someone says they are a Tenth-generation descendant, you may ask them who their other 255 6th Great grandparents are.;). We have 128 4th Great grandparents, 512 6th Great grandparents and 8,192 10th Great grandparents.

Last report I have located memorials for 16 of my 10th Great grandparents.

I researched the builder of our 1820 home home in VT. The settler was a veteran of the War of 1812. The home was built with the timbers of first growth Spruce, Ash, and Maple. Beams over 40-FT, boards wider than 42-IN. The first owner had moved from Connecticut in 1820, leaving the County my maternal ancestors lived.

Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery a cemetery I have taken to see that photos are completed for each memorial, and, that genealogy is done to link them to their ancestors and descendant memorial. Sleepy Hollow II Pleasant Grove Cem 1831I live in Weddington, NC (Union County).

Last Checked, only 63 of my 3,023 suggested edits sent (family lineage) have been declined. 97.9% correct and improving.

Yes, this is a long review but, it was there to learn, not create.

Thank You.
