Transfers to you
Greetings Becky,

I transferred three memorials to you in Maplewood Memorial. You indicated you had the obituary for Mary Beers. I would be grateful if you would e-mail it to me so I can put her obituary in my private genealogy files.

Have a wonderful day!
Alex Roller

I deleted the birth info, I don't know where that came from.
Obit has been posted, thank you!
If he is family, send your contributor number by way of an edit to his memorial. I would be happy to transfer.
Thank you!

Thank you, I've made some updates. I bet my mother or her siblings knew Anabel (or her mother or husband), as they were from another of the missionary families there at the time. Thanks! -Dave

Thanks for the suggestion on Alice's memorial. I had come to the same conclusion after seeing her death certificate, which listed her daughter as Anabel Bijjani. Thankfully we have linked up Alice's memorial to Anabel, both husbands, and both parents. Again, thank you! -Dave

Do you have ancestry? We could definitely check!

Harry/Harvey Wade #126703129
The stone has his name as Harvey and your record has him as Harry -- but from his obit (and the obit for his wife Bertha), it's clearly the same person. So I sent through a link to his wife and added "Harvey" as a nickname.

Thank you for checking about a marker for Alfred Livingston. It is a shame that he does not have one. I was glad to see that you added the newspaper article about his death. That was the next thing I was going to send you.

I am researching my 7th great grandfather Samuel who I suspect is related to Humphrey Cole. Therefore, I wondered if you could give me the sources for this posting on Find-A-Grave.

Thank you,

Becky, thanks for the transfer. I have updated his page at Lynn Creek. I did change his place of birth because of information in his obit.
(No mention of any Zirkles, though.)

As you can see on his memorial page I created the memorial from the headstone I found in Montrose Cemetery, Baldwin County, Alabama.

RE: Hannah & Jacob
WOW Becky, now it is my turn to help you some. Very little really. I am connected in a few ways to the Zirkle but it was not until I found myself looking at William Young and Carol Sue Coffee in the "Red Book" that I really got interested. You see, in Champaign Co., Ohio, John Wolgamuth and Ann Zirkle had a son named William Harrison Wolgamuth that married into the Snapp family. She was my great grandmothers sister on my fathers side. I knew my mother was a decendant of Ludwig Zirkle and I called my Wolgamuth cousins and we started trying to connect Ann to him and we did. Next William (Butch) told me he had no information on his Zirkle family, in fact he did not even know of them. So, his mother was Ann Disney and a decendant of Jacob and Hannah Shaffer. What a find that book was with the photo's. Anyway, I should not ask you but I am going to anyway, do you have a family tree for him? I have some but not near what you have and I really don't think I can find the time to do another. I can add to yours because, in the book it has the names Nease which they come from the NEHS family and I have them back to Michael Nehs and Michael Jr. who were both in the REV WAR. I also have a marriage bond for Michael Sr. In the book I found Dittemore. She was the sister to John Hartman Dittemore who died at Camp West Point during the war. There was a daughter of John's, Lydia that married a Cotter and I am hers also. Do you have the time for all of this. If you do, that would be one hell of a tree!!

Now for the best part, In 1859, a wagon train from St. Paris, Champaign Co., Ohio left for Kansas. On it were William Harrison Wolgamuth and wife Delilia Snapp. Jacob and Hannah Zirkle, Delilah's siblings, Ballum Snapp, Peter Snapp, and others I just can't name right now. Oh and Delilah's sister, Elisabeth Snapp and her second husband, Jacob Reeder and about a ton of children from them all. I have the story of how they stopped in Hume, Missouri before they went on to Kansas. The Zirkle and Wolgamuth families did well but not the Snapps and Reeders. A few left and went back to Ohio. My Grandmother, Delilia Mae Reeder DOILE was born in St. Paris and she was 2 when her mother died. Now I know I do have somekind of connection to you and it thrills me.

So, are you up for this? I would like it if you would call me, 520-568-7274. What a small world. And Becky, Butch informed me he is related to Walt Disney but I haven't pinned him down on it yet. lol He and Carol Sue will be coming over for a few Cardinal games this fall and I can't wait.

Of all the people who I would be so happy to be connected to, you are at the top of the list.

will be visiting Carlton Cemetery mid Sept. Will try to get photo of this if possible. Would it be a plaque since it was a cremation?
Regards, Ann in Canada

Yeah at least he is found and linked to the family. That is all that matters. I have his son, Clinton linked now. :)

RE: Aaron Doan
Thanks for asking but i am a life member of the Doan Family. I did ask their genealogist if she had anything on my Aaron also. She doesn't. All I can figure out is he died between the birth of youngest son Wallace-1865 and the 1871 census where Waty Eliza is listed as a widow and head of household. Thank you so much for looking into it for me. Suzanne

Hannah & Jacob "George" Zirkle
Becky, Do you remember me, Linda Doile Morris. You helped me with the Doile family in Emporia,KS.
I was sent this Zirkle Book sometime ago because a woman found Zirkles on my tree. My mothers tree. Meanwhile, a couple that I went to highschool with in Winslow, AZ turned out to be from Zirkle's in Kansas. Another line I had never looked at even though one of the Snapp girls married a Wolgamuth and his mother was Ann Zirkle. And I know 2 of their decendants, sisters that one lives close to me here in Arizona. I know both of them well. They had never looked into the Zirkle family of theirs. Just thought you would appreciate how small the world is and Becky, I don't know if you are from them but...I have an entire line that no one seems to have found yet. The Zirkle family are connected to me with three different families in my mothers family. Nehs which the book had at Nease, but I have a marriage bond signed by all parties that gives me this spelling. Also ancestors, then the Hirkle family that I also share an ancestor, and last, Dittemore family that I come from 3 different ways. (only in Missouri as my mother would say). I am very interested in giving this all to someone who is doing the entire Zirkle family, all the lines. As for my Highschool friends, Butch is the Zirkle and his wife, well her mother and mine were best friends. The common that that brought them all to Arizona was the Santa Fe Railroad and....I almost forgot, the Zirkle's that went to Kansas were from St.Paris, Champaign Co., Ohio and left there on the same wagon train that my Grandmother Doile did as a child. Her mother was a Snapp (Schnepp) and it was her sister that married John Wolgamuth, son of Ann Zirkle.

Hope to hear from you,

RE: Laurance A Buist and Israel Doan
Hi - I have also worked through the Doan family books, so am pretty convinced I have the right Israel. I also have a photo, but nobody to verify it!

RE: Laurance A Buist and Israel Doan

Thanks for your reply. I think the immigration records you have found are for a great grandson of the Buist in Dysart cemetary.

I have lots of clues, but the story is complex. My maternal great-grandmother (Lilias Chalton) had several husbands - when her first husband died, one of her daughters (Gertrude Chalton) was sent with other orphans to Canada and ended up in London, Ontario.

Lilias then married George Buist (grandson of Laurence Buist in Dysart) and had a daughter - Lilias Buist. Very soon after, George disappeared and Lilias senior went to stay with Gertrude in Canada, leaving her daughter with a family in Wolverhampton, England (don't yet know that connection, but that's another story). Eventually Lilias junior visits her mother, and then ends up becoming the housekeeper of Israel Doan in Lobo, Ontario. Israel's wife goes to a mental asylum, and Lilias junior comes back to England, pregnant with my mother! We have correspondence between my mother and "Uncle" Doan recognising the relationship.

Other than geographical proximity, we haven't found a connection between the Doans and the Chaltons/Buists. I though maybe you had the key, but looks like it is just coincidence.

Thanks for you help, anyway
