Bio and Links
Bio Photo I now live in Massachusetts and am enjoying the opportunity to learn about my early ancestors here. My heart and much of the family I am researching is in Pennsylvania. The majority of my family is of German origin, emigrating in the early to mid 1700s. On my father's side I have a particular interest in the following families: Stine/Stein, Smith, Hauze, Burkert, and Flick. On my mother's side I am deeply vested in Virginia/West Virginia and the Hite and Manning families, as well as the Strouse family in Pennsylvania. See my Virtual Cemeteries for direct ancestors.

If the memorial I have uploaded is not related to my family, I would be pleased to turn over ownership to a family member.

Photos on Find a Grave should never be used without permission, and the source should always be credited. This is consistent with FAG guidelines. Attribution credits people's work, and also provides provenance for the photo.

My policy is that others may use the photos of HEADSTONES I have posted for personal use, but users should reference that it is a photo posted on FAG by Ellen and give the date and memorial number.

As a courtesy please DO NOT copy PORTRAITS unless you are immediately related or a direct descendant. I gives me the creeps to see my close relatives on strangers' trees. The same reference request applies as appropriate.

Thank you.

RE: James America
One cemetery. African American burials were welcome there (rare for the area). Tremont in Norristown was also open to AA burials. There is an entire African American cemetery relocated there (Roberts) from the West End of Norristown. The Pennsylvania RR pushed its way up the Schuylkill River when it built its Schuylkill Valley Division in the 1880's and that cemetery was in the way. Oh well! Today its a bike path. I do not believe there are any records for the Roberts Cemetery which was not uncommon for the time.

James America

Death Certificate lists burial place as Red Hill Cemetery which is an alternative name for the Jonathan Roberts Burial Ground which is located on Red Hill.

Plymouth, Plymouth Co, Massachusetts - JORDAN family
I accepted your edit on Baruch Sr. JORDAN the second husband of Mary (WHITON) WILDER-JORDAN-SAYER. Mary had three children with Baruch: John in 1694, Mary in 1696, and Baruch Jr. in 1699. Do you have full birthdates for them by chance. Hingham Genealogies provides the birthyears for all three of them but they were probably born in Baruch Sr.'s hometown of Plymouth and not her hometown of Hingham especially since they were married in Plymouth.

You said,

"I apologize, I didn't scroll down far enough to find the transcription."

I added you edit anyway, because you supplied a source that could be useful for someone who has no access to the cemetery. The tombstone reading I did is one source, and this is another, which most probably includes everyone in the cemetery. It is bound to help someone.

RE: Thomas Andrews
Your contribution is greatly appreciated--it is essential for memorials to be audited by someone like yourself. By going carefully through all of the available information and checking it against the data on find-a-grave, you fulfill the quality assurance role and make the site a better resource for everyone. Thanks again.

For Patience's first husband the basic reference would be Hingham Genealogies Volume II p. 11, 12 which shows that John ANDREWS was born 30d 9m 1658 in Hingham, Plymouth Co, Massachusetts the son of Thomas & Ruth ANDREWS.

Click here to see the revised virtual grave for Patience (NICHOLS) ANDREWS-BEAL (1660-1709):

Thank you for your submission. The "no children were born to this marriage" or words to that affect indeed do belong to Joseph BEAL but apply to his second marriage with Deborah THAXTER whom he married after he survived Patience (NICHOLS) ANDREWS-BEAL.

Thanks! It's easy to make little typos & easy to fix.

I added your "unpopular" edit, with an explanation in the Bio section. Perhaps a researcher will see it and come up with the goods. Thanks for keeping it accurate,
