|John Robinson||RE: HEISELY MARKER IN HARRISBURG|
Well, as it so happens, we are planning an exhibit and talk about Mr. Heisely and the Durang brothers of York and their connection to the National Anthem. It will be the weekend of Sept. 13-14 at the John Harris-Simon Cameron Mansion in Harrisburg.
Do you have an email address that I could give to those people planning the event so that they might write to you to see how you might be involved?
How fortuitous to meet a descendant online!
|John Robinson||HEISELY MARKER IN HARRISBURG|
The Heisely marker described in this sentence --
"The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has erected an historical marker for George Heisely at the Northwest corner of North 2nd St and Walnut St in Harrisburg." -- is not quite correct. That marker was erected by the City of Harrisburg, not the Commonwealth. I thought you might want to know this.

Tom, I sent edits in the "My Edits" tab on your profile for links for your Copeland memorials to their parents, added a middle name for one and some date and place information. I thought you reviewed and approved the edits is why I thanked you. If a memorial owner does not do that within 30 days F-G automatically updates the memorials and this must be what happened.~Laura.

I have been gathering information on the Heisley dynasty of instrument makers. You really put a lot of info together that is extremely helpful. The early instrument makers made them one piece at a time with precision and craftsmanship. Their accomplishments are worthy of a lasting legacy. Thanks

John Locke Find A Grave Memorial# 115974320 is my great grandfather. would you kindly allow me to manage this record as well as his mother Johanna Locke?
|Janis Tomko||George Michael Hoff|
I noticed that you added quite a few Hoff memorials which included photos and bios. Thanks so much for creating these - particularly the one for George Michael Hoff (Memorial# 83589351). From the tombstone photo it appears that his wife was Eleanor Ludwig. I have been trying to find more information on this couple and if they had a son named Richard. I know this is a long shot, but are you related and do you by any chance have any further information on Michael and his child[ren]?
|Zim||RE: Frederick A Heisely|
WOW!!! What a family history. I am truly impressed. I almost didn't send you a note I was just going to post the picture and keep on going. I'm so glad I did.
Here is something that will make you go HMMMMM.. Peanut House/Zimmerman House...my last name is Zimmermann. A friend of mine says, there are no coincidences it is your loved ones on the other side saying Hello. I think our families are saying Hello.
I posted Catherine's picture and Thank You for the shout out but it really wasn't necessary.
I found the lot on the Section 22 map. It is lot 77.
Thank you again for all the info.

|Zim||Frederick A Heisely|
Find A Grave #80258852 I couldn't help myself. I had to notify you. I posted a picture of Frederick A Heisely's headstone. It is the best headstone I have ever seen.
There is also a Catherine Heisely - died Mar 13, 1868 - buried next to him. If you create the memorial I will post the picture. If not, I'll post the memorial and the picture.
Allegheny Cemetery does not have them listed on their website but they are buried in Section 22. One day this week I will stop in their office and ask for the lot number.
Let me know what you would like to do.
