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

John A. Titsler
I have a photo of a young child with John Wayne Titsler written on the back of it. Guessing date of around 1900 to 1910. Do you have any idea who this child might be ?

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 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.

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.

Henry R. Jackson
Ted - you were correct on Henry's father. His obit from the Greenville Record Argus stated his father was Alanzo, and this was my information for years. After your note I check the census records and verified his father was Alan. - Thanks.

Pember Waid
Hi there. I see you have added Pember Waid's record at the Blooming Valley Cemetery on Findagrave. He was born Jan. 21, 1774 in Lyme, New London, CT. Anyway I see you have Phoebe Matilda Waid listed twice as his daughter and one of the links does not work. Just thought I'd mention that you are missing a record for one of his children who was Martha L. Waid, my fourth great grandmother. She was born May 8, 1804 in Joshuatown, New London, CT and died Jun 22, 1833 in PA. Martha L. Waid was married to Lathrop May Allen who was born Jun 19, 1973 in NY and died Jan 9, 1870 in Athens, Bradford, PA. They had Fayette A. Allen, Clarissa "Clara" W. Allen, and Henry Oscar Allen.
