RE: Burke Thanks..... The reason you don't see her in the 1910 census is because she and her 2 siblings were counted in Greenville, PA. When their mother died, they had to go to the St. Paul's Children home in Butler. Their father had no one to help him care for the babies. They went into the home which closed and were then transfered to Greenville. It was a terribly long way for their father to travel from Kittanning to Greenville and they probably saw him very infrequently. Thanks Melanie
RE: mystery on the 1920 census. they are at the bottom of the page and Wilda is on the next page at the top. There may very well be a Wilda Schall who married a Sowers, but the lady in that grave is a Schrecengost. Her father Edwin died about 1969 or 70 in Strattanville (clarion Co.) I went to his funeral. I cant find his grave, but know it was in the church yard of an old white church, probably Lutheran. More later.
Wilda Sowers I was wondering how you came up with Schall as her maiden name. Burke said you gave him the maiden name and Middle name. Katherine is correct for a middle name, but Aunt Wilda is my grandmother Hazel Schrecengost Schall's sister. My grandmother married Ross Omer Schall, but her maiden name, and Wilda's is Schrecengost. They had a brother Ernest Jacob Schrecengost. Their parents are Anna Cravener Schrecengost and Edwin Alonzo Schrecengost. Are we related??
Beer Family Hi, I am a descendent of Daniel and Maggie (Watterson) Beer. Are you related? Also when I clicked you name I saw a message to you from a young fellow about taking pictures at Warrington Friends Meeting House. I almost fell out of my chair! If thats the one near Wellsville, PA. I have ancestors there also (Irrgang). Would like to find out, or exchange info. on Beer Family if you are connected. Mark Weitzel
I will stake claim to your requests for photos of William Ross and Jane Nesbit Ross' headstones. My prior experience within Warrington Meeting House Cemetery has been that many of the stones of that era are very difficult to even read. I will do my very best though to not only search the yard, but take time at each stone by trying to scribble/trace potential stones of these names.
Please do me a favor though and send me an email back next week to remind me to go hunt. I shoot a lot of pictures daily and my day usually depends upon if I desire to shoot cemeteries, abandoned buildings, wildlife or architecture. I will be more than happy to help you if you reply to me to remind me.
Kinter Hi Lynn, Thanks for the note. Yes a few of the Kinters are in my famiy tree. I don't know where James Ross or Nancy Lucas Trimble Kinter are buried. I have not researched that line only direct ancestors. I will definately keep you in mind should I happen upon them somewhere. Good luck on your search. Jill
