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. NEED HELP: looking for parents of Lucy Ann Elizabeth Strausbaugh, wife of Melchior Sachs. Married 1849 March 16 in Gettysburg, non-Cathlic rite. 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: Dale Edgar McLaughlin
You are very welcome. We are trying to go earlier in the day before it gets unbearably hot. I understand Tuesday will be a cooler day. Hopefully, we will make more progress then.

RE: Ada Copeland King
You're welcome. What a fascinating man he was--I first became aware of him from reading "The Education of Henry Adams," he being one of Mr. Adam's closest and most admired friends.

I am still not sure how he "passed" in the black neighborhood where he and Ada lived, but I guess he was rarely at home.

Funny, I thought of him just a couple of weeks ago when the Rachel Dolezal brouhaha came about. I believe his intentions were less selfish than hers, even if things did not turn out as he planned.

RE: Virtual Cems
I've yet to enter the Damm folks - for real - but there are others who I created a memorial for but will not be flagged in any VC cause they have x-rated names - just a letter or two off...I can say to check out Dr. John Broome in Christ church in Port Republic Calvert county Md. I listed him in 2 VCs. Gotta think on this one. Don't want anyone to get mad but hell - it's his marker done long ago.
Times change and it says something else now...

you're welcome!
Check some of my virtual cemeteries for some neat stuff and some crazy names - 'They were Americans too'...
2 favorites of the crew @ CH are the Simmons, Mable and A.R. 'Dick' - check the photos well
My favorite @ CH - Carl Braatz - check him out and leave some flowers!
