i just called evanville ind. to the main chapter, on margaret waters.
she was the only one here in indiana. i will have to get a form to fill
out to request all her info from washington d.c. she went in on richard
waters maryland. others of her line warfied, jacob livinggood[sp]
francis schoph,nacy waters maryland samuel sands, there was also on the
micro film samuel waters from hancock co. ind. from what i
understand she might have lived next door to my grandfather and didn't
even know it. she was at the ole'teachers home, that they built next
door to my grdf. I'm not saying we got the right one yet, ever who
gave this info could have gave it through margaret to get into the dar.
the salyer name did not come up again. also ever witch one of these
names could be related to the salyers. we got 2 ways to look at
this so far the margaret i found is still the only margaret
waters here in indiana thats in the dar. welp, whatta think? could there. Isn't.

This is why familysearch is such a mess!

Charles Salyer
This family is my mother's maiden name. We have all the children from the various family in Bibles, in census, church records, civil records, The Salyer Family book. A few years ago I worked with the waters family as well. My personal records are not available right now. Check back with me in 6 months. Part of the Salyer family hired a genealogist who has made many mistakes. As far as family search goes it's a accurate as the sources that are attached. The rest is just mythology or guess work. So go with the ones that have the sources.

RE: Kough Family
Ok, I'm going to decline it for now, but make a note in the "note" section (good place for it eh?!) that his POB/POD may be Clinton PA so that anyone else doing research on the Kough's will have that.

Kough Family
BTW- While researching Edward Kough I discovered that he had a 22 year old son, Richard, who died at age 22 of lung cancer. When I looked at his death certificate I discovered that he was a Delaware State Trooper. I work for DSP, so in essence he's part of my DSP "family". What an awesome find! Are you related to the Kough's? I'd love to have a picture of Richard for his memorial.

Edward Kough
Hi Shirley! I've been doing some research trying to verify the edit request you submitted to change Edwards POB and POD. The SSDI says he died in Sussex County, Delaware but the death certificates for that year aren't available online yet. Do you happen to have a copy of his death certificate or his obit saying he died in Clinton PA instead?

I did not post the document you are asking about, someone else did, so I do not know if the image is the complete document or not. The parent child relationship was made based on the assertions of another find a grave member, and not based off of my research.

Hope this helps.
