Thank you for your generosity in transferring:
Josiah Mountz # 45228749
to my care. With your help I have successfully connected him with parents, one sibling, wife and children. As I receive more information, I will be adding it to Our shared memorial.
With sincerest appreciation,

Added James O. Miller and Mary Ellen Enders, her parents as you requested.
|Deborah (Hoffman) Weiner||RE: Mary G. Messner|
Yes, Mary and my G-grandmother, Mary Ellen Hoffman, lived on the same farm together, originally the Peter Enterline Farm East of Enterline. I was very fortunate to have this photo identified for all to view. Wish I knew how she died.
