Bio and Links
Family historian, micropaleontologist, hiker, retired teacher among other things. Thanks to all who posted memorials and photos useful in my family tree, and made memorials of closer family members. I do not "own" my memorials and photos, your non-commercial use for family purposes is fine with me, credit is appreciated in your trees, histories and websites. Prohibited: commercial use unless you have my written permission.

Now working on Strausbaugh family tree, including Ory family in Louisiana. NEED HELP: looking for parents of Lucy Ann Elizabeth Strausbaugh, wife of Melchior Sachs. Married 1849 March 16 at Gettysburg at an unknown Reformed Church. Born in or near Gettsyburg, PA about 1829. NOT Lucy Ann the daughter of George Strausbaugh and Elizabeth Bittinger, that Lucy Ann married Joseph Warner and stayed in Pennsylvania instead of moving to Illinois. Anyone knowing her parents names please contact me.

RE: Thanks
You are very welcome, I did take photos of all Swan headstones that day in the cemetery so you might find more links. If you need any other information just ask, I'm glad to help.

Eliza Gleason #124453535
I am transfering Eliza Gleason to you since I saw a note on her memorial that she is your cousin. I got a correction from history seeker #47049540 as follows "she was the sister of Alexander Cameron not her father. Look here

Hope you can fix the memorial so correct parents are linked. There is no way to contact historyseeker who sent me the avove message. Can you please correct the parents names and put a note in the bio that you are sure of the correct parents. Jean Colson sent me an edit for the parents that I linked to Eliza which may not be correct. If not correct remove them.
Thank you,

Edward Strausbaugh
there is no marker for his grave. the site is right next to his wife. His son Edward is on the other side of the wife.

RE: Thanks
No problem Chris - Looking back, I should have told you I posted another picture when I did it and gave you the option to keep it or have me delete it. I'm glad it worked out and you liked it. If you run into any more that I've posted and want me to delete them, just let me know and I will. Take Care - Jim

RE: Jean C. Hedges
Chris, Thank you for the info that you have provided to me. I, too, want an accurate genealogy. I don't have much on them. But I think I could safely connect them, always looking for more. Christina
