"A cemetery . . . tells the story of the past, not of its institutions, or its wars, or its ideas, but of its individual lives, -- of its men and women and children, and of its household. It is silent, but eloquent; it is common, but it is unique."
-Joseph Anderson, American Clergyman
1836 - 1916

I welcome all corrections, and with a few exceptions, I am happy to transfer any of the random memorials I have created - on to those who have a relationship, or historical interest. My ancestors, family, friends, local memorials, and special history interests, I do maintain in my care.

RE: Margaret Landis/have requested obit. to be posted

Oh gee, thanks for a quick response and your research efforts. Just checked Find A Grave for Joseph and Margaret I and see you've already made the links, so all I can do is thank you! And especially thanks for the obits of William and Margaret.

I noticed Rosy's obit also appears in the Myersdale Library Special Collections Project. If you got it from there, I wonder again if whoever typed up the obit from there made a mistake. It says the obit possibly came from the Meyersdale Republican.

Obit do have errors. Was annoyed with my half-sister when she gave the wrong maiden name for our grandmother's mother when she (grandmother) died. And this was only in the 1990s, so ... people do make mistakes. Also wonder whether Magdalena (instead of Margaret) is wrong or just a middle name. She's Margaret or Maggie in the census records I've seen.

Anyway, thank you so much for your efforts. Perhaps in Rosy's entry you can simply note that the obituary is incorrect; that she was the daughter of Joseph Landis, not Peter. Otherwise, it looks as though you've made the mistake, not the obit.

Take care.

Dear Georgia, thank you SO much for your sponsorship of little Sammy. I'm sure you've tickled Paul and his Sammy to no end with your gift. You're such a sweetie in thoughtfulness! ❤
Sammy does look much like our sweet buddy, Henri. I never noticed until you pointed it out. Thanks again, dear friend! Have a great weekend. With much love and many huggles, Suse

RE: new photo and elusive cemetery
I photographed everything there during my last trip a year or so ago, so I don't expect to find anything new. I know how much finding this site means to them, so I'm more than willing to meet them and lead them to it so they can see it for themselves.

RE: Love You
New update Sept. 24, I was able to get to the doctor today. He gave me more pain pills and other medicine for my heart. He said the one side of my heart is working at 20%.

He is going to have a nurse come out 3 times a week. He said she would be able to draw my blood so I will not have to get out. Today I sat and blubbered and bawled like a baby at the doctors. He said I need to go to a heart doctor as I might need a defibrillator if not a pacemaker.

Jane A, Conklin
Hi, My Mother is Laura Conklin Scudder. (85 years old)
We are researching and find some similarities to you. Joseph Lester Conklin married Hannah Jane Enich. Did they have a daughter named Jane A. Conkln 1841-1907? I see other sisters such as your Sarah, Phebe, Josephine, Nancy, Hannah Jane and Maria, Efalinda.....

We believe they did and she married Lewis Ketcham Scudder in our line. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Good to see you here!
Thanks, Georgia. I've really started to get into the genealogy thing in the last year or so. Fortunately, you and Becky and others have done a lot of finding and posting on find-a-grave so all I have to do is follow along.

Amanda Wingate
I've searched for Amanda but cannot come up with anything. Could she have gone by another name? I only found one other person in the Haseville cemetery with the Wingate name. I know the person who keeps the records for the Haseville cemetery so I need to see if I can get a copy of them. It is not infrequent that a person is buried and there is no tombstone. Most of my records are based on a canvas of the cemetery and reading the tombstones and newspaper articles. I can give you a list of the Wingates I have in my file for Linn County but that is about all that I can do at this point.

Yes, I was at the Haseville cemetery a year or so ago and need to go back. At least some of the Gooch's in the cemetery are related to me. I was born about 1/2 mile from that cemetery. The Gooch's all came from Virginia but we haven't determined if they go back to the same person yet. Some say no, but I'm not convinced yet. Otherwise how did both lines end up in the same area at the same time.

Gooch Cemetery
Yes, I was able to get the article. That was article had some more information that I had not seen in some of the other similar articles but as I have studied the history of Linn County it is not surprising. If you look at the pictures of the cemetery today it is in bad need of work on both sides. I've gone in and cut grass and sprouts and have worked on some of the fallen trees and I'm hoping to get them all out this year and get the cemetery to where it can be mowed and you can get to all the tombstones. I had to crawl under a fallen tree to get pictures of one a few years ago.

Thanks for your information. Every little piece is helping put the puzzle together. Don DeWitt from New York and I are working to get the Gooch family connected as much as possible.

William Greenup Gooch
You have a note posted on his page 25741481
that says he had a fourth wife. The posting on Findagrave only shows 3 wives. Can you provide any information on his fourth wife and any children by his fourth wife. I have been able to find 13 children but his obituary says he had 14 children with 12 living at the time of his death in 1893. I know Albert died before he did.
