Bio and Links
I am very involved in genealogy. I've been researching four families for 20 years now. And still searching!

It's good to post information to help another researcher find his/her roots. Others have helped me in the past; might I do the same for you.

11/1/14-I have been diagnosed with lymphedema in both my legs so it is most times difficult to get up to SVC to take photos. I have taken many earlier this year that I have yet to post. Will continue to add them and hopefully will be able to get back to the cemetery and continue to contribute.

Susan Marie Samans1910-1914
I had visited the grave of Susan when my grandmother died in 1960 or so. WE went there to see Susan's grave after we buried her mother who was my grandmother. her grave was on a hill as I remember and my dad was quite when we went there. He never told me about her but my mom said he always thought he had brought something home form school, she got it and died..all because of him. Susan diedof scarlet fever though..not his fault but...I did a lot of poking and prodding and finally came up with the info on the Wiants. Here is what I had written on her find a grave site:

Thanks for info. Have most I think. Wyatt was a rev and neighbor of my grandfather 'a up in Greenville. Susan was my father's young sister.....who died of scarlett fever I think it was. So sad. Dad never got over her death. My grandmother was pg with my uncle who was born in 1914 and never knew his sister. Rev Wyatt had room in his plot and let her be buried there.

I looked to see a connection between the Wiants and my family (Samans). I looked at great aunts husbands sides etc...and then I saw that I had two people in my tree named Fehr! One was named Conrad but I had an 1806 birth date for him...but then there was the grave stone picture and when I did the math I saw the date was actually b 1785 not 1806. Anyway Conrad's sister (One of many siblings the had) was named Eve Catherine Fehr and she married into the Wiant (Wyant) family when she married George Peter Wiant (Wyant). So although it is a distant relationship to the Wiant family and I really wonder if at the time they new of it back then at least it's a connection :)

Thanks to ancestry.com's relationship connector I now know that Eve Catherine Fehr was 3-4 years of age and she died and was buried at the Shenango Valley Cemetery in Greenville Pa, Her brother, Carl Hubert Samans named his daughter Susan, b 1937-d 1972 after her. Susan is buried in the Wiant Family plot at the cemetery. The Wiants are distant relatives of the family of Susan's mother Katehrine Lum Samans.

Thanks again :)

Barb
