RE: George W. Edkin Memorial
It may forever remain "probable" rather than "proven," but I've been researching this family for at least 15 years. Someday I just might find proof.

George W. Edkin Memorial
Thank you for transferring to me. People have pondered this guy for decades, but I'm about 95% certain that he is a son of Thomas J. Edkin. There were about 5 people named George Edkin born in PA around the same time as this fellow. Two died in childhood. Two of them (son of John G. Edkin and son of Francis Edkin) are well accounted for, buried right here in PA with their wives. That leaves only George, the son of Thomas. He was in PA in 1850 census and then disappeared. The George in this memorial turns up in Michigan in the 1860 census and says he was born in PA. So unless he comes from an entirely different line, I'm pretty sure he is the son of Thomas Jefferson Edkin.

Albert and Robert Hanford
Hi Becky,
I have been researching street names in this area: Hanford St., Columbus, Ohio. I wondered how such an English sounding name came out of such a German neighborhood as this. In my search I learned that this street is named for R.G. Hanford who owned the Columbus Nursery from about 1870 to 1882. I am sure he is your Robert Gilmer Hanford's son. R. G. Hanford and his family are listed in the Columbus, Ohio 1870 Census. His wife is Julietta, son-Gorge, all born in New York. Then there is Elizabeth, Robert, Julietta and Albert born in Ohio except for Elizabeth and I can't read where. The nursery has a full page ad in the 1876 city directory listing the proprietors as Hanford and Son, and noting they have 9 greenhouses with all variety of trees, plants and even goldfish! The earliest listing I could find for him was 1862 in the city directory. There both Robert and Albert are listed as working for Bateham, H. & Co. Robert is living in the location that most likely became the nursery. R.G.Hanford's land in shown on an 1872 map of Columbus, Ohio as about 30-40 acres. The location of his original home is now the n.e. corner of Hanford and High Sts., but his house is no longer there. It is condos and businesses now. His original land is a 3 x 4 block area in what is called Merion Village. Thank you for the info on this page. It was very interesting. L.M.

RE: Mary Frances McCoy

I couldn't really read the stone from the picture. I was going by the name and DOB. However, I did think the death year looked like it was 1 and then an 8. Is the name actually Mary McCoy or Mary F. McCoy or Mary Frances on the stone? The stone may be a child of Asa and Minnie McCoy or she could be a daughter-in-law???????????? I'll do a little more digging around to see if I can come up with a likely match. I will let you know if I find anything. I haven't been able to find anything more on Mary Frances who was the daughter of William and Virginia other than what you have; the name and birth date.

Mary Frances McCoy
Born 26 Mar 1928 in Braxton County. Buried in Flatwoods Cemetery. I believe her parents are William McCutcheon McCoy and Virginia Christian Moore. She appears in the 1930 census with William, Virginia and their son, Donald.

Linda Tomlinson
Rachel Tomlinson Dau of Joseph
Hi Becky, My name is Linda Tomlinson. I'm researching the Tomlinson family and found a Find A Grave record that you posted for Rachel Tomlinson, daughter of Joseph Tomlinson, Find A Grave Memorial# 55628434.

You have Rachel Tomlinson's mother and Joseph's wife as Margaret Cook but I have a Quaker record that Rachel is the daughter of Joseph Tomlinson, son of Joseph Tomlinson, and Margaret, daughter of _______ Baker.

I am descended from Joseph Jr's brother, Richard.

You have her married to Moses Doan which might be true but I hesitate to assume it's correct unless I can resolve this conflict with her mother's name.

RE: Relative of Sarah Ann Koppelberger Connally
Just a note to say thank you for your note :)

I did find some more information on line as well as a few books in the library (I work at a University) on Quakers and the American Revolution and history of Pennsylvania.

I find this all so fascinating. And in addition, my husband also has a connection to the Doan family as well. I thin I might have meantioned his Empire Loyalist ancestors.

But he also had Quaker ancestors in England who were transported to Australia for being "trouble makers".

I'm going to check out the books and the Doan group as well.

I'll drop you a line now and then as I progress.
Thanks again.

Hello - I visited Steward's Boy J B Anderson's grave this morning at the cemetery on the edge of Murmansk and I have uploaded a couple of images for you. He was very young - it was very moving to see his final resting place and headstone. I hope the pictures are helpful.

Relative of Sarah Ann Koppelberger Connally

I was just doing some quick check up on those Koppelbergers buried in Arkona Cemetery because I might be nearby next month when I visit friends in Ontario.

For the first time I discovered that Sarah Ann had a son, William, who had a daughter, Helen, who married John Doan.

From there I started reading the information that, I take it, you have included for many of the Doan family in Bucks County and in Canada.

It's absolutely fascinating. The Koppelbergers were initially from Bucks County and Pennsylvania. Some remained there and some moved to Upper Canada/Ontario. Most of them moved back to the U.S. to Michigan and Wisconsin.

Anyway, so is there somewhere I could find full history of the Doans and what happened to them?

My husband's relatives/ancestors were almost all Empire Loyalists who fled to Upper Canada. So the story of the Doans is very interesting to me.

Thank you very much.

Goff family
I have been attaching the Goff family to my tree. Your memorials are unbelieveable for accuracy, story, and details. My most supreme compliments for the wonderful work you do. I should have you do the memorials in my family. (LOL)

George William Goff, 1894-1985, married Dorothy Anna Harttel, abt. 1914-1980, in 1942. Dorothy was the daughter of my great grandfather's youngest brother, born Karl Hertel, he later took the name Charles Albert Harttel. Dorothy's mother was Viola Helen (Henning) Harttel.

It was pure joy to add the Goff family to my tree.

Very Sincerely,
Sylvia M. Hertel

RE: George Dossey
I'm sorry I didn't see your email. Don't we receive notifications when we get a message? No, I never found anything on George Dossey. I didn't know him, but i think the lady that found the MC gave up.
By the way, my dad just died yesterday, and I had entered him in Find a Grave months ago because i knew he was dying. When i entered his death date and added stuff, I noticed his name isn't in a link anymore. But his brother's name is still a link. Why would my dad's name lose its link? Do you know?

RE: chester arthur boggs grave
hi! it seems that chester arthur boggs owned the property where the cemetery is. his property butted up against the oscar kazee property. oscar and ollie (wife of chester arthur ) were brother and sister. so, if chester owned the property then it would be called the bogg's cemetery. there are several different cemeteries in lawrence county, ky that have same names.for instance: my husband's family in buried in the castle at blaine. well there are several castle cemeteries in lawrence county, and i find that the castle cemetery in ulyssis has some of the people that are buried at blaine listed at the ulyssis castle cemetery, and i don"t know how to get that corrected. i couldn't find the listing for this cemetery on the internet. i'll keep trying to find it. the listing i have is:pfc harold boggs 1922-1944, chesster arthur boggs 1887-1960, ollie kazee boggs 1887-1972, clyde kazee 1903-1945, pollie kazee 1876-1918,m.f. kazee 1872-1950, elmer kenneth boggs 1916-1918,julina boggs 181-1914, nancy boggs 1866-1933, charley albert boggs 1892-1894, martha jane boggs 1835-1886, eliphus boggs 1833-1916, infant of eliphus and julina boggs no dates. hope this not too confusing and that it helps you. thanks. any more question, contact me. chris wheeler.

RE: George Dossey
Awe, thank you, Becky! The envelope was addressed to a C. D. Caylor in 1951 and it contained the marriage certificate of George Dossey and Gentry Roberts Dossey. But I did notice that the same george Dossey married again in 1912, 3 years after marrying Gentry Roberts Dossey. I figured she must have died since divorce wasn't real common back then. But maybe they did. Who knows? I'm curious as to how this letter was found at a park in Kansas on the ground. I would like to see it go to a descendent of George Dossey, or maybe a family descendent of Gentry Roberts Dossey. Thanks Becky.

Mary S. Scott
Maria Anglemire Tedrow
Dear Becky,

Received your note with the biography data for Maria. I revised it a bit to clarify family members and relationships.

There is some confusion about the state where Maria was born. In the 1850 U.S. Federal Census, Maria's birthplace is also listed as New York but the 1880 U.S. Federal Census and her actual death record state she was born in Pennsylvania.

Part of the problem is that the family of Emmanuel Anglemire lived on the border between Pennsylvania and New York State for a while. I would have to review the information I have on this family to make a better determination. One of the problems seems to be that the family moved around a lot.

Emmanuel Anglemire never seemed to be in one spot for that long of a time.

I have a copy of the autobiography of Ephraim Anglemire and also the Civil War Pension Record for Ephraim and Daniel Tedrow. I will try to check out these sources for further confirmation.

Maybe we can compare notes in the future and see what we both know about Maria.

Best wishes,

Mary Scott
