Bio and Links
I have always liked puzzles. When my daughter asked me why certain persons attended the same weddings, funerals, and family events that we did, it was time to organize and put together our puzzle. Unfortunately the night my father brought family information to start his lineage, he had a heart attack and died before we could begin. So our personal 'History Mystery' had a slow start. By good fortune and sheer luck I was connected to a distant cousin in North Carolina and it has been an addiction ever since. Now my grandchildren are assisting. And life goes on and the puzzle never ends.

Valerie Malmont
Thank you for posting the memorial for Countess Valerie S. Malmont. I might not have known of her death had I not seen it. I never personally met Valerie but in 2003-2004 she and several others joined me in a research project which delved into the mysterious life and death of Jan Bartell, an obscure author, poet, and off-Broadway actress. All of my conversations with Valerie took place via phone and email but even so, I feel very fortunate to have had that contact with Valerie. She was a unique and very talented person. She will be missed, I'm sure, by all who knew her.

Thanks for the info on Cora. I updated her middle name. I transferred her memorial to you. It should be with someone who remembers her and can add to it if need be.

Thanks again and have a happy New Year.

RE: Garnet and Mary
thank you ....very very much again for all of your work..maybe my grandfather was a machinist there in his earlier years. He did graduate from college as an adult (as opposed to right out of high school) so perhaps they sent him after 1940..sometimes wish I could ask my grandparents these things but of course that is not possible..thank you again for all of your work and the information!

snyder family
Thank you for all of your work! So fun to read :) I wanted to mention though that my grandmother (Mary Gsell Snyder) passed away in 2002 (month/date are correct...year is off a bit)....and my grandfather (Garnet O. Snyder) is listed as a machinist with the PA railroad..he was the office manager of Chambersburg yard, PA railroad rather than a machinist. Again...thank you super much for all of your is so informative to read about everyone :) I believe also to add a bit that my grandmother also had a sister Katherine (no clue of middle name or married name) Gsell and a brother Arthur Gsell (in addition to the siblings Fulton, Lillian in the listing). Arthur was married at the time as his death a few years ago to Sallie ..they lived in Hagerstown..I believe that she was his second wife though as they married very late in life...they were dating my entire life so I never met the first wife (or knew her name..I do believe that they had at least a son who lived in California as he visited my grandparents once when I was there). Again..thank you so very very much for all of your work!!

Martin Family
I was was very pleased to see the find-a-grave entry for Jacob Martin [Jr. I think], who I believe is my 2nd great granduncle. Don't know how far your research has gotten you, but you may have information about the Martin family that I do not have.

I would be pleased to share what I have, Much of my information came from family records with the rest from internet sources. Please let me know if you want to go further on this.

I have Jacob's birth date as 28 Oct 1816, but your date of 28 Dec 1816 may be correct. You may perhaps have something on Jacob, Jr.'s father, who I assumed was born in either Pennsylvania or Maryland in 1786.

Any help appreciated.
Will Schieber
p.s.: My grandmother was Edna Martin Schieber.
