Col. J. Patrick Egan
He is listed in a book I have as Col. J. Patrick Egan, died 17 Apr 1888 at the age of 56 years, served in the Civil War, and buried in St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery.

His death certificate says he was 49 years old when he died and has his name as Patrick Eagan.

RE: Littleton Parker Ewell
Hi Eddie,

Thanks for getting back to me in regards to Littleton Parker Ewell, buried in St. Mary's cemetery in Pocomoke, Md. Sorry the police harassed you while in the cemetery. If you'd had a shovel, I could understand them being suspicious, but not a camera and clipboard. Geesh. I'm glad you found my ancestor's grave before they asked you to leave. What an amazing thing it is for you to have found his grave and me to have checked on "find-a-grave" again. I had checked a few years back with no luck finding him. Littleton Parker Ewell was a Confederate soldier in the 39th Va. Inf., but when they disbanded, he went missing and no other information on him has been found til you found his grave. Yes, if no other descendants of his come forward, I would be interested in taking charge of his memorial page. Thanks very much, Eddie. My "find-a-grave" membership number is: #48630833e

Thanks again!

Sorry, but I just realized I called you Edie in my prior message!

RE: Jacob Leightner

I found him through a Pennsylvania veteran's burial card on Ancestry.

And, yes I have Keefer (Kiefer) as the last name for the older children. However, I have Margaret as her first name - according to his son William's death certificate!

And I haven't been able to find where Margaret (Rebecca) is buried. I'm thinking maybe Mt. Zion, since both George Michael & his 2nd (or 3rd) wife, Hester, are buried there. And their daughter Amanda is also buried there.

I've also seen where he might have been married between Margaret (Rebecca) & Hester. To an Elizabeth Yost - with a son John. But I don't know if that's accurate or not.

Don't know if that helps or not, but that's what I have so far. Along with several variations of the spelling - Lightner, Leitner, Leightner!

If you have more information, I'd love to hear from you.

I ask that you correct the spelling of her (maidenname) from JAENAGIN TO JARNAGIN. Close examination of your photo will show this to be correct. Thank you.

Memorial for Littleton Parker Ewell
Hi Eddie,

Littleton Parker Ewell (Memorial #89771240) is my 3rd Gr Grandmother's cousin. He was a Confederate soldier in the Civil War and I never knew where in Pocomoke, Md. he was buried til I came across his burial site that you provided. I am curious as to how you found him and who, if any, of his descendants requested it as I'd like knowing more about his service. Thank you kindly.

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.

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!
