RE: Re-Minnie Scheid McAfee
I see Amelia (Minnie) Scheid McAfee’s death certificate lists John as her father, but it was Jacob Scheid.
All of her siblings and her mother’s obituary list her as daughter/sister, etc.
She is in the family with them on the census, so I was hoping you would connect her to her parents. I sent edits, but wasn’t sure if you saw them yet. THANKS!

1860 Lock Haven, Clinton, PA, Jacob Scheid 50, a Boatman, real estate $5,000, personal estate $1,500, Phoebe 45, Catharin 20, John 18, Jacob 14, all born Germany, Caroline 11, Frank 7, AMELIA 5.

1870 Lock Haven, Clinton, PA, Phebe Shide 55, real estate $6,000, personal estate $1,500, Jacob 24, a Boatman, Caroline 19, MINNIE 14, John 27, a Boatman, real estate $2,000, his wife Maggie 24.

Her mother's obituary:
Clinton Democrat, Lock Haven, PA, September 26, 1889.
Another Old Lady Gone.
Mrs. Philippine Scheid, widow of the late Capt. Jacob Scheid, died Saturday a.m. at 1: 30 o'clock, of inflammation of the bowels. She was 73 years old on June 24th, and was born in Flonheim, Hesse Darmstadt. She came to this country with her husband in 1842, and to Lock Haven in 1846, and Saturday it was just 23 years since her husband died. Mrs. Scheid has left four daughters, Mrs. P. W. Keller, and Mrs. John Barrett, of this city, Mrs. Charles Krause of Philadelphia, and MRS. JAMES MCAFEE, of Punxsautawney. Also three sons, John of Philadelphia; Frank, of Williamsport, and Jacob, of this city..
The funeral of Mrs. Philippine Scheid Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the deceased's late home on Jay street was largely attended. The services were conducted by Rev. Darmisetter, of the German Lutheran church. Interment was made in Highland cemetery. The pallbearers were Messrs. Henry Hills, Jacob Bearwailer, Henry Glass, John A. Marshall, J. J. Fox, and John Fry.

Marianne, I was in Weatherly, Pennsylvania visiting family. We have family that are buried in Union Cemetery there. I looked for your photo request but I could not find him. I wish I had more time to look. It had rained that morning & storms were moving in so I got maybe a half day of research. I live in Missouri so I don't know when I will get back to Weatherly, PA. I'm sorry I couldn't help you.

Peter Uplinger - Memorial# 44083205
Hello Marianne,

Could you possibly email me a copy of the obituary which you have posted on Peter Uplinger's memorial? I tried to locate it in my Newspaper subscription but was unsuccessful. Peter Uplinger was the brother of my mother's grandmother, Margaret A. Uplinger who married Nyman B. Chittester.

It would be very much appreciated.

Thank you,
Cari Wilkes

Marianne - Thanks for the obit, as it helped clarify all the various children. The Lord family is fairly large and is a subset to the Bloom Family in Clearfield Co. The Bloom's seem to be a never ending story HaHa !!!!

Hope You are on the mend and Thank You for all the help.

Happy 4th of July - Tom Schoening

Re- Helen A Nye-Memorial 72835980


Thank you for keeping me honest! You caught me with 2 poorly sourced events.

Worked these two many many years ago and had FamilySearch IGI records for spouse relationships. Those of course have disappeared (probably rightly) and now I am left with nothing. FamilySearch shows them in the Pedigree Resource File now, but I don't feel that is very reliable either!

My newspaper searches for b-d-m data comes up empty too, so I've deleted both maiden name suggestions.

Sorry for the trouble, and thanks for all your postings.

I'm wondering if your would be willing to transfer your memorial for Norman R. Adams (126079159). He is the son of my great uncle Frederick W. Adams. I would like to add new information to his memorial.

Thanks for your consideration,

Marianne - Thank You for creating the Memorials for Sarah Jane Jordan Newcome and her four Grandchildren. Thank You as well for researching the four grandchildren and finding their death certificates. We had family stories of two sets of twins that died at birth. You were able to confirm that and provide names for two of them for the first time.

Thank you as well for transferring them over to me for caretaking. I appreciate it very much.

Samuel Boyer
Thank you for the posting on Samuels Obit. Have been working on my g.g. grandfather George Boyer for awhile. Pretty well there but always searching for obits and old pictures. George Boyer was the father of this Samuel. His mother buried in Beechwood Cem.,along with his baby sister. His father remarried in Jan. 1850 to Anne Scot Patterson, at her fathers ( Andrew Scott) house in Jefferson Co. Have longed to find more on the children of George & Sarah (Moore) Boyer and their lives. In hopes to put a face to a name.
The obit was wonderful as it has names of siblings and facts. Still I research for facts. This I can hand down to my children & grandchildren. George and Anne moved to Kansas later with their children, George W., Pheobe , Ellen Elizabeth and her dau Isabella S. Patterson. George is buried in Greenwood Cem. in Morris Co., Ks. in a G.A.R. Plot. I have civil War records and such.
Once again thank you for the obit and hope to see some faces to these Boyer's in the future.
