Henderson Sizemore Born 1821
Hello Gary: Thanks for creating the memorial for Henderson Sizemore. He is one of my distant cousins. I am trying to confirm his parents. Your listing is the only one on Find A Grave. You have his parents as William and Anna Asher Sizemore. I have seen Henry HuntingShirt and Rachel Jones Sizemore as his parents, along with James and Elizabeth Fields Sizemore which are said to have been listed on Henderson's military records as his parents (I have not see said military records to confirm this).

I was wondering if you have conclusive documentation...or can explain why you have his parents listed as such? I'm not saying you are wrong, by any means...just looking for the truth.

Thanks for taking the time to respond to my inquiry and for all the work you do with Find A Grave. It is appreciated! Take Care. Deb Foster ddnsfoster@aol.com

Peter Balthasar Suman
Hello, Gary~
Peter Suman is my 6th great grandfather. I'm researching and haven't been able to find verifiable sources on what I read online about Peter. Will you share with me the sources on your biographical information? I appreciate any info you can share.

I see a citation in an addendum on your bio, and sources there, but I'm more interested in the sources for your main bio. You have substantial info there, including immigration, which I have not been able to confirm.

Thank you so much!
Laura

Jonathan Randall (119876654)
Gary,
I noticed you created Jonathan's memorial. Are you any relation to the Randall's? Johnathan was my third great grandfather. The memorial lists his parents as Jonathan and Massy Randall. Jonathan Randall Sr.'s memorial list parents of Jonas and Sarah Randall of Baltimore. I contacted Prserving the Past, the creator of Jonathan Sr.'s memorial. He was sure they are not buried in Riverside. I live outside of Baltimore now, and if Jonathan and Sarah are buried there I would love to find them.

Hi Gary,
Question for you...what documentation do you have an Barbara's birth location? Other than the obit stating Maxatawny Township (which covers more than just Kutztown), I've got two of her sisters claiming that is incorrect, and one of her daughters naming Allentown as her birthplace. I've yet to get my hands on her birth certificate to have something more concrete to go with. Would you be willing to share your source??
