Jean Curran Otis Hi, Ted - thanks for working on the Cambridge Springs cemetery listings. You list JEAN ELIZABETH OTIS, d. 15 jul 1985. My info. has her death in San Diego and her parents as TROXLER and CURRAN (fa). Are there any other family members buried with or near her? Is there a husband? (don't know his name) Appreciate your help! Nancy Williams
James Howard Mays Hi Ted, I see you have a listing on Find A Grave for James Howard Mays. I found his death certificate on Ancestry which gives the same death date you have but a different birth date. I'm wondering if you are a relative of his. I also see you are a native of Spartansburg, PA. I have an ancestor, Gustave Schmelzer who lived there most of his life in the late 1800's. I would appreciate it if you would reply here or contact me directly at email@example.com
Pilgrim F. Isherwood Pilgrim Isherwood burial at Mitchell Cem. Crawford Co. Pa. born 2 Jul 1767 has been found in the 1870 census Rockdale Crawford Co. Pa. living with daughter Eliza(Elizabeth) Robbins He is 83 So best to just delete death date 1851
RE: Caflisch, Delling, Owen, and Minds The Utica newspaper article for columns wide, and goes from top of page to bottom. It has several photos, too. The only I could make reference-able (is that a word?) copies was to scan it in pieces, then do an old school literal cut-and-paste, to put them back together into one sheet. I can send it to you if you like, but I don't think you';d be able to get it Find-A-Grave.
Also, a couple of death certificates are online for some of those killed in the train wreck.
I just completed a genealogy of the Sykes family - 10 pages of descendants!
Caflisch, Delling, Owen, and Minds Hi, Ted; I am the Town Historian for the Town of Clifton in St. Lawrence County, NY, where the Owen family lived - and very near Conifer. I ahve seen some of the PA death certificates on Ancestry.com for these people who all died in an horrific train wreck in Mount Union, PA. Originally written as 26 Feb 1917 as the dates of death, they were corrected by hand on the original to "27 Feb 1917" with a time of 1:26am noted. Also, I have an original newspaper clipping on the funerals from the Utica Globe, which states that the patriarch, William C. Caflisch (the one whose funeral everyone was travelling to on that ill-fated train) died in Brooklyn, NY. That could be a mistake, as Conifer does make sense, but it is what was reported. Mark Friden
Cordeloa Cole Info Hello Ted K I am researching my 3x great grandmother Cordelia Cole Loucks, #68572557. You have her death in Spartansburg, PA, 1 Mar 1891. You also give a marriage date to Ebenezer Loucks, of 21 Oct 1852. Can you tell me where you found these dates? I cannot find the proof anywhere online. This is the last evidence I need for a DAR application. I am not averse to a road trip (I am in Ohio) to PA but want to know where to focus my attention.
