I ran across his obituary, and made a memorial # 61367764, if you can copy it and add it to the one you have, I will delete mine when you are done. Wilma

RE: Josephine Kuhn
Done! I am not comfortable correcting or adding to the page of someone else without first getting permission.
I noticed that HER surname is spelled without the "t," but her father's has the "t." Probably an error on the father's since the DC does not have the "t."
I did not change her maiden name since you only said to add the photos.

Ur more than welcome, working and sharing vs. the attitude, "That Is Mine, Mind Your Own Business" makes us more effective.

As I said, I have that picture of J.W. Gallaher
on a postcard and on the back it says (In my father-in-law's own handwriting) David B. Snyder's great granddaddy--J.W. Gallaher--the
old Engineer Born 1761 I have his J.W. Snyder
b c 1817 so I don't know the story yet.

TROXELL graves at Egypt Cemetery
I have noticed that Henry S Troxell (#124143660 at Egypt Cemetery) has a duplicate memorial (#159418841 at Saint Johns Union Cemetery in Mickleys). I have been to the cemetery in Mickleys and have personal pictures of his grave there. The same is true for his son, Daniel David Lewis Mickley (Egypt - #124143753) (Saint Johns Union Cemetery - #159418855). The mother of this family and another young son, Thomas W are also buried at Saint Johns. So is Mary Smith Troxell's mother!
