Baby Jenks Southfied Cemetery
Hello Eddie: (Good name it was my father's name). Indeed, there are two baby Jenks buried in Southfield Cemetery. The one that died in 1887 was the child of Oliver and Eva. I made a memorial for him and linked him to his parents. The other baby must belong to Albert. I think we straightened it out. Thanks for getting back to me. Enjoy the holidays...

RE: Francis & Mary Stevenson
Dear Eddie:

It was so "very thoughtful" of you to take the time and energy to clean the tombstones of Francis and Mary Ford Stevenson. I know that my wife, Mary Catherine Vermillion Burgner would have appreciated the "kindness" you have shown for her ancestors. I'm sorry to say that my wife "passed away" on November 6, 2013. She was also interested in the genealogy of her ancestors. Again "Thank You" so much for the time you have shown.

Francis Stevenson photo
I want to "Thank You" so very much in finding the tombstone of Francis Stevenson. I know it wasn't an easy task to perform. The tombstone is "very old" and the condition of the stone is not the best. Again "Thank You" for taking the time and effort to find the stone.

Hello, your memorials of the above and his wife are a duplicate of mine..however I'm glad to delete mine because you have more information, but wondered if you would like to copy any info that I have that you don't before I do that. I'm from Southfield where my kin are buried and have also studied the early pioneers of that area, posting their memorials on the local cemeteries. Mine is spelled "Jeffrey"

RE: Michael Swartz and Mary Ann Minter Swartz
Thanks for the information! I located Andrew James and Cecillia in baptismal records with parents being Michael and Mary Black. Catherina and Jeremiah baptismal records were located with parents being Michael and Mary Swartz. All where baptized in Manchester, MD except Catherina, who was baptized at St. Jacob's Stone Church.

Andrew James was born July 23, 1839 and baptized on August 12, 1839.

Cecellia was born June 4, 1843 and baptized on September 17, 1843.

Catherina was born April 23, 1849 and baptized on May 9, 1849.

Jeremiah was born July 23, 1850 and baptized on September 6, 1850.

Also, I have from marriage records that Henry M. (Swartz)Black's first wife was Eliza Amelia Grogg, married on 5/11/1869 in Carroll Co., MD. Eliza Swartz died 5/11/1870 in childbirth and is buried in Lazarus Cemetery. Eliza's parents were Jesse and Catherine Fisher Grogg. In the 1870 census there is an infant Catherine Black born May 1870 living in the Grogg household. I have no idea of her whereabouts. She does not appear in the Grogg household in the 1880 census.

As for Daniel Wolfgang, this is the following census info I have (all in Manheim Twp., York Co., PA):
1860: Daniel 43, Sarah 41, George 15, Saranda 11, Jacob 8, Theodore 7, Mary 68, Leah 28;

1870: Daniel 55 (Constable), Sarah 47, George 20, Lucinda 18, Jacob 17, Theodore 13, Leah 45;

1880: Daniel 62 (Painter & Plasterer), Barbara E. 38 wife, George M. 36 son, Saranda 25 daughter, Sarah M. 5 daughter, Franklin Fleming 1 grandson, Leah 48 sister.

Daniel and Barbara Ellen had a daughter Sarah Mandilla born July 5, 1874 and baptized on October 4, 1874 at St. Jacob's Stone Church.
Daniel was in the Civil War and served in Co. B, 166th Regiment, PA Infantry. He was listed as an invalid in a July 6, 1881 pension filing. Barbara filed for a pension as a widow on December 15, 1888.

Would you know who Michael Black's parents were? In the 1850 census for Manchester, MD there is a George and Mary Black. George born about 1784 and Mary born about 1777. George must have died before 1860 because in the 1860 census Mary is living with a John and Ann Wampler in Manchester, MD. I cannot locate their graves or other information to tie them to Michael Black. Thanks again!

RE: Henry Minter
Eddie, will be more than happy to transfer once we figure this all out. No too many names Minter in this area around 1850. I did find a Henry Minger age 20 born India? on 1870 census. Not sure about that but he was in the house of Abraham Stoffer. They all can be found in local cemeteries for further identification. Believe there is a family connection? I enjoy figuring this out. Were they missionaries?
