RE: August Seltmann
Info supplied by direct family member Thomas Seltmann on He, like us, is retired and has been researching his family since 1975. I am related to Donald Seltmann 1921-2008 through marriage.

I should also mention that Thomas has shared family photos of August and his wife Amelia.

RE: Alexander Baird
It was good to hear from someone on the Baird family side and I love seeing the pictures that you have posted. I haven't been able to find anyone still around Hancock Co, IL that are related. Keep up the good work and maybe we will find some more pictures some day. Have a great day!

RE: Moses Embree
Moses EMBREE, son of Robert and Mary EMBREE, was born 16 December 1652, at Stamford, Connecticut.

See Stamford Ct. Town Records; pre-1870 barbour collection (LDS microfilm)

Moses Embree is my direct line. You and I are cousins. I thought that I had sent you additional info earlier, but if you failed to receive it, please email me at Put "Moses Embree" on the subject line.

RE: Moses Embree
Dear Cousin.

I thought that I had answered your query; but my message probably was lost in the Find A Grave system. I apologize. I have a great amount of info on our common ancestor, Moses Embree and related families, that I am willing to share with you if you email me directly at Put "Moses Embree" in the title line so that I can retrieve your message from my SPAM filter and repeat your query to me. Then I will send the answer to your query and more, via email attachment.

Genealogy has been my hobby and avocation for over 65 years. I'm 86 years old, and have served as historian and registrar for a number of heritage organizations including the Mayflower Society, SAR, Soc. of the War of 1912 and Sons and daughters of the Pilgrims.

I'll have to check my old research note files that are currently packed away; but I think that the specific info you asked for regarding our common ancestor, Moses Embree, was from one or more issues of the TOWNSEND NEWSLETTER published some 30 years ago.

Hi FamilySearcher. We were in touch a while back and you mentioned that we shared some places we'd lived. You also mentioned you had moved back to the Midwest. I, too, have moved "back east" (from CA) but I'm in Virginia. I'm now in the South. We absolutely love it here. I've been looking at photo requests because I'll have some time to explore and take photos. I've been fascinated by cemeteries for a long time. I think I had a pleasant experience at Rose Hill in Chicago years ago. There are a lot of family plots around here. It should be interesting. On top of that, there are many Civil War sites very close to us here in Frederick County, near Winchester. I'm still hoping someone can "claim" my photo requests in Chicago. Too much to see and do. Not enough time even though I'm retired! Take care.

Does not help that they seem to adopt the name of whoever the husband at the time is.

Good luck.

My apologies, but I have no recollection of the reason for the request.

RE: Virginia McNamara of Elmhurst, IL
Hi, I do not have any more information. I think I attributed it to what happens sometimes with manual changes vs. edit suggestions.

When manual changes are made at the same time an edit suggestion is out there waiting to be approved, the edit suggestion changes itself. This results in some "bogus" edit suggestions.

Memorial# 102918289 - Joseph A. LaBounty
Please reconsider changing Joseph's middle name to AUGUST.

Joseph's middle name on WWI draft registration is AUGUST.
Joseph's middle name on WWII draft registration is AUGUST.
Both of these documents were signed by Joseph himself.

I find NO records where Joseph uses ARCHIBALD as middle name.
I do see that he has a SON named Archibald, but that is not Joseph.

I also cannot find any records where Joseph uses the first name JUSTIN.

Can you share your source for the middle name ARCHIBALD?
Can you share your source for the the first name JUSTIN?

RE: Lt (jg) Ribar
I imagine the use of Lieutenant is generic as this is the term of address to a person for 02 and 03. I doubt there was a post-mortem promotion, but you never know.
