Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have made many memorials for very, very distant relatives (and some non-relatives) gleaned from death records and obituaries. I will be more than happy to transfer management of any memorial closer than mine, just let me know the relationship.

I also welcome any corrections to my records, as no one is perfect, myself included, but please include a source with your correction.

Feel free to use any photos I've taken of headstones, but please give me credit for the picture, as it was dang hot when I traipsed through some of those bramble and poison ivy infested plots... LOL.

Additionally, many thanks to those contributors that were gracious enough to transfer the memorials for my close family members, outside of the FAG guidelines, even though they were not obligated to do so.

Edith Wheaton/ William Wheaton
I collect old diaries and have recently acquired one written by Edith Wheaton in 1882. She frequently mentions Will and Mary. She also talks about Jim ( James), her parents, grandma and numerous aunts and uncles. I have only just started reading it, but I noticed an entry early in the year where she takes a train to Palermo, NY and stays there for a week with relatives. She herself appears to live near Pineville as she goes there frequently. Will and Mary visit almost daily so they must live close by. Anyway, as you left a memorial on William Wheatons page, I was wondering if you are related to them and would have any interest in whatever info I can glean from the diary.
Thanks for your time,

RE: Alice Shurtz
Her son, Paul Mone Shurtz, has a record of a Ohio birth which states his mother as being "Emma Weibler" and his father as "Andrew Shurtz":

Ohio, Births and Christenings Index, 1800-1962

Birth Place:
Toledo, Lucas, Ohio

Birth Date:
20 Dec 1898

Christening Place:
Lucas, Ohio

Father's name:
Andrew Schurtz

Mother's name:
Emma Weibler

After your question I looked into it more. The Ohio birth record was a mistake. Her name was Emma Jane Wade. Plain and simple. Thank you for asking!

Alice Shurtz
Hi there,

In regards to the double burial records of Alice Shurtz - daughter of Andrew Shurtz, 1861 1910 & Emma Weibler Wade, 1867 1943.....

I believe that Alice was first buried at Forest Cemetery, Toledo, OH with her paternal uncle, Edmond A. Shurtz, 1858-1863, until the death of her father in 1905; then Alice was moved to lay at rest with her father, Andrew Shurtz, in Woodlawn Cem., Toledo, OH.

I hope this helps and thank you for your information. Every bit helps!
