Born and grew up in Warren County, NJ. Most of my ancestors come from Warren Co., NJ and Berks and Lehigh Counties, PA. Some names are Smith, Read, Letson, Danley,Berry, Petty, Lichty, Bachman, Dietrich and Kroninger.
I am the great grandson of William Andrew Balliet and I communicate only to ask that a truce come about. MY CONCERN: There are two (2) Find A Grave #'s for William -both contain correct information.
MY GOAL is to CORRECT the Find A Grave Memorial for William!
Your Mem #53731427 was entered 6/15/1010 THE OTHER MEMORIAL came from Contr #47133543 Shirley entered partial information as you did on 4/19/2008.
Can the two of ya ladies communicate to combine information and delete on of the two memorials or would you perfer to transfer the Memorial to Williams ancestrors (me). . My contributor Number is 39265068. . Could I kindly ask that a reply come from yourself in regards to this communication.
balliets when i took the pictures i didnt realize at the time they were requested photos. i will go back and get the other ones you needed. the cemetery is less than 10 miles from my house. not problem at all. that cemetery is very well kept and i cant believe how thick and green their grass is already.
RE: zigler Hi Shirley.. you are most welcome for the transfers..
Some of the surnames of my Warren, NJ people are Shimer/Scheimer/Shymer/Shimmer (the many variations of spelling for this branch of my family almost drove me crazy trying to untangle this line), Stover/Stauffer (another difficult one to untangle.. as it seemed like they all gave their children the same names.. so I had several cousins of the same name, born around the same time, with the same named fathers who were also cousins who inner married with other cousins.. I YI YI.. it was maddening and thoroughly confusing at times and I'm still not certain that I have it 100% correct) There were also marriages of my Stover and Shimer lines into Knecht, Bachman, Spangenberg & Reigel families on the Easton side of the river..
Looking thru your memorials, I noticed that we do have kin buried in some of the same cemeteries in Warren.. so ya never know.. there could have been some 'interactions' between our familes a century or two ago..
I have had so much fun researching and have learned a great deal more about history than I ever learned in school.. The search for my ancestors has been one of the most rewarding & educational ventures I have ever undertaken so far.. and I have barely even scratched the surface.. And becoming a find a grave contributor has been my way of 'paying it forward' so to speak, for all of the assistance I have received from others on my Ancestry quest.
So if there is anything else I can assist you with here in Williams County, Ohio, just let me know and it would be my pleasure..
RE: Peter Zigler edit Hi Shirley.. Transfers of the Zigler family memorials have been made.. If you come across any more memorials of your people that I hold, just let me know and I'll send them your way..
By the way.. many of my people are buried in Warren County.. and also just across the river there in Easton.. I hope to make my way there some day to visit their final resting places.. it's on my bucket list..
Peter Zigler edit Hi Shirley.. I've processed the edit you submitted for Peter.. I've also linked him and his siblings to the parents, Reuben #106388652 & Catharine #106388697 Zigler, in the same cemetery. There are 3 more Zigler's buried at West Jefferson namely Jacob 1858-1935 & his wife Anna 1862-1935.. and an Emma C. Zigler 1862-1939 whom I believe to be the sister of Jacob (or perhaps his 2nd wife.. the cemetery record I have doesn't list the relationship between Jacob & Emma yet it does list Anna as his wife & she shares his stone). The Reuben & Catharine Zigler plot information lists 4 children (Peter, Josephina, David & Benjamin) who died young, all share the same grave marker and are buied next to the parents.
Would you like me to transfer managment of this family over to you?
forest Lawn request If you contact their office (through email) and request their location I would take a photo for you. I have been in their office a few times and I think they are tired of seeing me. They would be more willing to do a lookup if the request came from a family member. Once you have the location just enter it into the memorial page and it will show on the photo request. Thank you, Karen
