|Bio and Links|
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.

Burton Ray Klinger is not directly related to me, but is distantly related to my late mother-in-law. Thank you making contact!

"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.

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.
|Carol Tatum||RE: Catherine Sargent Engle double oops|
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,

Transferred to you by now.
|Carrie Karbley||RE: George Jewel Micott|
Ellen, Thanks so much for the reply, Yes this was indeed a sad story that many homes went through in those's war years and even more so when Lucille lost their child at birth right before George went oversea's. His story puts flesh on just the bare facts in a family tree. From the records it appears he survived the crash of the heavy bomber and was interned in a prisoner war camp [makes the story of Unbroken come close to home]. I do have family up in Bethlehem and have just come back from a family funeral the other weekend. I have Boyer Family buried in Grandview in Allentown besides and family over in the Catasauqua cemetery, Fairview. Carrie C.
|Barb Beverage R||RE: Captain William Thomas followup|
Went back to look at sources for William's birth. It was hand-written by his father, Joshua, for his pension application. All the children's births are written there, day, month & year - no place. I agree that a 1792 / 1793 year would fit the census, but, the primary record cites 19 Sept 1791. The family did resided in Lincolnville & Camden prior to the islands, so Lincolnville birth would fot/
