Peaksville City limits, town in near distant view, lookng east.

I began my genealogy work about 30 yrs ago, in hopes of finding my fathers heritage. It was a difficult journey but finally put the pieces together. After I had done that I found the Peake gelealogy online which had been done by John T. Suchy. I am so glad I did not see his file during my initial searching, but when I did I found that his simply VERIFIED all that I had found. Up to finding his file online, I had spent the first 15 years piecing the Peake names together, with all the Johns, Wm's and Humphreys, every Peake family named their children these names. It was, who goes to what family? and scratching head.

My family names are Peake, Eisenbach, Kunkel, Stevens,Tarbell,Henning, Moffett,Lotspeich, Holland, Worden Most of my memorials are those of these family names and I will not transfer them.

Many thanks to those that have transfered memorials, and to Ronald Sommers for obtaining so much information on the Kunkels side, as well as Marcella Chapel for securing so many photos of the old Grassyville Cemetery for us.

If you must copy and paste the BIO info from a memorial page and into your account on Ancestry or My Heritage Tree or any other genealogy website, (you know the ones that CHARGE a FEE to view.) Credit your Source please. I don't mind any family member having the info, but to just take it as yours is disrespectful considering all the big$$$$$ and time, I have spent to obtain it. 30 years......and you get it in minutes and for FREE. Shame/shame. NOTE: plagiarize...
To use and pass off the ideas or writings of another as one's own.

This has happened many times with the Lotspeich name. I love to share what I have, but my info was used,(info they never had before) and not even a thank you mamm, or an invite on the reunion trip to GA., the homeplace of the Lotspeich's I found for them. Sour Grapes, perhaps.

My endeavor here is not to get a Kgillion memorials under my belt and then dissappear and become inactive, personally I am not that important to have such an EGO, my work is to inform my cousins out there searching for their family. I love hearing from them and share. I think the Kgillion memorial data entry folks drop out and become the F.A.G. police................

PS: I am thrilled when a NEW Cousin contacts me via F.A.G.

Your very welcome. You may wish to look at my Veterans' project which is also on my profile page. Hoping to get it finished by Memorial day. I like the Google Earth version best. Just Click the link and download the KML file.

RE: Cornelia Peake Mcdonald
Thank you for your interest in the page. I was not involved in the deletion of anything. I posted the original photograph of the marker on the first entry when I entered the Colonel many years ago. There is no need for concern about how my memorials are "taken care of". After consideration of your request, I prefer to maintain it.

Thanks again,

George Seitz

JoAnne, I am Patsy Stonestreet Day and I descend from Mary Stonestreet Peake, who was married to Humphrey Peake,Sr. Do you have any research on Humphrey and Mary? It is my understanding that they were close friends of George and Martha Washington and they are mentioned many times in his writings. Please share any info you might have on this family. Regards, Patsy S. Day e-mail:

I am most happy to transfer his memorial to your keeping. I would like elaborate more on what happened, but not on this page open to public view.

My 2x great grandfather was also a surgeon in the CSA. I'd certainly get him a military marker . . . if I knew where he was buried. Sigh. Glad you were able to solve the mystery!

Good luck to your cousin! Hopefully, it is something that can be cleaned off. Do let me know if you are able to, I would like to see the result.
