|Bio and Links|
Hi, I am Cindy Elschide. I began doing genealogy in 2000. Since then I have expanded my family tree in one place back to 1080 and in others several generations also. I started out with just a few names and now my house is over run with (about 30) 3 inch binders and tubs of papers, folders and pictures etc. I always say I get more fun going to a cemetery and finding an ancester's grave than most people do going to an amusement park and riding the roller coaster.|
My husband & I have been known to center a vacation around cemeteries, libraries and courthouses. With visits with family and a little bit of site seeing thrown in.
My father's line includes Brooks & Haybron(southern Ohio); Gandee, Harper, Shafer or Shaver, Tanner, Hinzman, Raines and more (West Virginia); the famous Indian Scout Jesse Hughes who has many things written about his life; and I am cousins with Presidents Washington and Herbert Hoover.
My Mother's line includes Collard (originally from Belgium), Curwick, Kerouac (Jack Kerouac, the author and including being related to Madonna and Celine Dion); Newells' from Cambridgeshire England and Snows from East Riding Yorkshire England; Brownfields, Sallee's & Cox from Ohio, and other places of ancestors are Netherlands, France, Italy and more.
My husband's line includes Peter Kappis/Cavis a Germany Mercenary in the Revolutionary War; Peter's son who was the Engineer for the John Bull Train which currently sits in the Smithsonian in Washington DC; Ehlschides from Germany; His grandmother Helen Robertson was born in Scotland (her grandfather died while building the Firth of Forth Bridge) and his grandfather (Gerald McCann)was descended from Irish (Boyle and Corbett)who fled the potato famine to come to Canada.
I had visited the Find a Grave site before but just recently realised that I should have been adding to it--a long time ago! I find it has brought great enjoyment to me to share the photos I take with everyone on the web in hopes that they help others.

Hello. Do you know for certain who Sarah's mother is?
According to birth and death dates reported, Sarah was born 13 days after Margaret EUTSLER Zinn died.
All of Samuel Zinn's children born after Sarah have an unknown mother. Do you know who that is?
Best wishes and Happy St. Patrick's Day from Janet Find A Grave 47198955

|Kate Selby||Sarah, wife of Daniel Hendricks|
I found your memorial through a hint at Ancestry regarding my great-grand-aunt Sarah Ducker Hendricks She lived in Kentucky and was born in 1815. However, she was married to Enoch Smith Hendricks, she was born 8 Nov 1815, she died in 1862, and the names of her children were completely different. So we are not related after all, but I wanted to let you know so you can cross Sarah Ducker Hendricks of Pendleton County, KY, off your list of possibles. Thank you for providing such complete information about your family members.
|Jerry Hughes & Roger Young||Edward Widerfelt # 119453140|
Hi Cindy, I too am a volunteer on this site and find great pleasure working my local cemetery and helping family find their loved ones. I was recently at Roosevelt and capture photos of Edward Widerfelt and his spouse. I search ancestry.com and found a tree that mentioned Margaret as Mother, maiden name was McNally but they had a birth year of 1825, I found your listings and saw you mentioned Edward of Long Beach and I am certain this is probably one and the same Edward that is son to William and Margaret you manage. I have linked him to them both and hope that this memorial comes in handy for your work. Sincerely, Jerry Hughes
|Melanie Mick||Margaret Green Douglas|
I just started working on a family tree for one of the the daughters of Warren, the youngest child of Margaret according to this info. I was wondering where you got the info below, on the 1940 census Warren and Margaret are both listed as step children of Leroy. Not saying you aren't correct...I just wonder if you have any info that I have not found yet. Also, Warren was born before Margaret's mother passed away, he was born in 1933 and Sarah passed in 1935. Anything you can provide would be greatly appreciated, I just started this research without much to go on.
"Margaret is the daughter of Nicholas Greene and Sarah Angeline "Angie" Rodebaugh. After her mother died Margaret then married her Mother's husband Leroy Douglas. They had one son-Warren."
|Jennifer W.||Re: William R Kerr|
I was wondering if you may be able to help. I found your comments about William R Kerr (son of R. Kerr and Lucinda). I am trying to get the lineage of my mother's direct line from her biological father. So far I have Roger Dyer Kerr (my mother's father) who is the son of Atlas Gilbert Kerr, who is the son of Elijah Green Kerr. After that there is absolutely nothing. On Elijah's death certificate his parents are listed by his second wife, Sarah, as unknown (my mother's lineage comes from his first wife, Esther, maybe Easter). I have done some extensive looking into things and formed an educated guess that Wm R Kerr may be the father of Elijah Green Kerr. I found a marriage certificate for a William E Kerr that listed Wm R Kerr and Martha J Kerr as his parents. The occupations and cities were similar for William E Kerr and Elijah. Wm E Kerr's wife's middle name was also Belle and Elijah named one of his daughter's from his second wife Belle (possibly after his sister-in-law?) Anyway, I was wondering if you may have any info in regards to the children of William R Kerr and if Elijah Green may be one of them. Thank you!

I am wanting to learn more about Robert Hendricks because I believe he was my mother-in-law's grandfather. Her mother was Birdie. Her grandmother was Amy Williams (maiden name). My mother-in-law was never told anything about her grandfather. We have no photos of him either. If you have any information about him I would appreciate it.
