|Lynda Elliott Dixon||RE: Charles Pellikaan|
Lynn - I see you lost his grave photo in the process - I saved it to my computer and can add it if you would like, however, I didn't take the photo - the person who made the original memorial did. I did see that yours was made before that one, but it was in the correct cemetery, so didn't know the protocol. Also didn't know that you could make memorials for findagrave without knowing the cemetery!
I found Greenwood Cemetery from his obituary in the Clarksville paper - it also ran in the Calhoun pape, and a search turned up the memorial.
Thanks for fixing it. Nice to see the Pellikaans together.

I am crying with the memories. Thank you for incorporating into the memorial page. They were indeed wonderful people. Millie started off there as a bookkeeper and Willie started as a delivery man. For a short time, they even employed my father as a delivery boy. My father was 9 years younger than Willie. Thanks for the tears-they are good.
Your find a grave friend-Barbara

Hi Lynn, I just sent an edit to you regarding the birth date of George T. Scott. The date is from his father, James Scott's pension record.

|Jane E. Delger||Helene Elisabthe Bremer * 1874|
According to the church records of Edewecht (near Westerstede in Oldenburg) she was born in Jeddeloh and baptized in Edewecht on 6 Sep 1874.
I have entered records for her whole Family in the Oldenburg Auswanderer database.
They lived at various places in Ammerland (WST in the abbreviated place-name) and I have tried to pull together whatever I could from the various church books of Westerstede, Wiefelstede, and Edewecht. Your generous notes on findagrave helped me to identify the right family. Thank you.

|Steve Kemp||RE: Brackenridge markers, dates|
Thanks, Lynn. I should have guessed that was the case (for James B.) born 1774 and not 1744. In 1789 he was petitioning the court in Huntingdon County, Penna. for the appointment of a guardian. So far we cannot trace his mother past that year, and nothing about her exists on Find-A-Grave. His father (Robert) is presumably buried on the farm in Woodcock Valley, then Bedford County, where he (and James' oldest sister) were scalped and killed by Indians in 1779. That seems to have been among the last raids into that part of the state by western or "Ohio Valley" tribesmen.

|Steve Kemp||Brackenridge markers, dates|
I'm passing on to you the information given to me by a friend who is a descendant of James Brackenridge. She is from Missouri and has looked at the inscriptions closely and though noting they are hard to read, she has done her best to make corrections. There is only one James, apparently, and the persons reading the transcriptions at the time the books were published simply could not make them out. I know how often that happened... here is her message to me, following...
As for the graves, the reading of the stones is inaccurate - Eve/Eva's stone says relict of Jas - an abbreviation of the time of course of James - my James Brackenridge (her probate confirms date she is James wife as she has the same children as heirs) there is no Jasper. James' stone read b. Pa 1774 d 6/23/1853 Not 1823, and 1853 matches the probate file. His stone is currently very hard to read. Since those were so badly misread I question all the dates in the stones from this reading. Issac is his son. I wonder if the Thomas E was actually born in 1825 (misread of stone) and is the son whose handwritten memoir I have a copy of and who says he was born in 1825 and I know he was still alive in the 1890s. I thought he probably died in Colorado since he was living there in the late 1800s, but perhaps he was buried with the family. The current database of the St. Louis genealogical society has Eva listed correctly as the wife of James and does not contain the errant James.

|Mike||Bernard & Mary Droege|
You entered the memorials for the two above (59139452 & 59139468). They had a daughter Elisabeth that died in infancy (1902-1902 #59139455). Three years after this Elisabeth died, they had another child that they named Elizabeth (Elizabeth M. Droege Imming 1905-1980 #26924687). It seems that they wanted a child by that name that lived until adulthood. I have contacted the person who set up the memorial for this other Elizabeth to establish the link to her parents and 12 siblings. I am contacting you because you indicated in your memorial that Bernard and Mary had 12 children, when they actually had 13.
I know the above from studying the family tree for the Droeges. If you need to contact me I can be reached at email@example.com

You had done such extensive work on the family that I thought you might be "kin" to them. I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate your through research, and being able to know that if you say it, it must be right!
The pictures I have come from a photo album belonging a grand daughter of William Lichtenberg. It is her grandmother's album. She knows nothing about the family, and there are no names on any of the photos. I've scanned them into my computer, but am at a loss as to what to do with them now. Perhaps I'll find a Lichtenberg "blog" where I can post them.
Again, thank you for accurate and productive work for all Find a Grave members.

126993669 posted by you :) i was wondering if you had any other information on him?I came across this the other day (so neat )
From the Montgomery Heritage Vol III, page 97 in the San Antonio library
Alice McGill Weideman lost her husband, Charles, when he was killed by a bolt of lightning when he stopped by the Hawkins Farm to take refuge under a huge oak tree next to their barn. The lightning storm had come up suddenly as he was on his way to Carrier Mills with his team and wagon. A huge bolt of lightning tore through the tree, hitting Mr. Weideman as he set on his wagon and killed him; The Hawkins and Weidemans were neighbors so they were friends. Richmond Hawkins had just lost his second wife, so he and Alice McGill Weideman were married and they and their children from both marriages farmed and lived .

P.S. Forgot to mention, the only edit that I did not accept was in regards to the naming convention, changing the first name and nick name. I did add his middle name as you can see. Sorry I forgot to mention this information earlier. Again, I did add that information to the bio section. Thank you again. :)

Hello there. Thank you for all your edits. I accepted them all except this one.
I placed the edited information you sent me to the bio section. I kept what the marker says as this complies with Findagrave's FAQs and this also helps avoid duplicates from being created as well. Hope you understand.
Thank you for taking the time to send me those edits. I appreciate it very much.
