+++PLEASE CHECK MY NEW EMAIL ADDRESS+++

All the people I record are my family with the exception of Dateland Fort in Arizona where an entire regiment were killed by the Indians. Reording that one was my pleasure.

PLEASE, WHEN FAG WROTE THE GUIDELINES FOR TRANSFERS, THEY COULD NOT THINK OF EVERYTHING. THE MEMORIALS ARE FOR THE D.E.A.D. AND NOT FOR OURSELVES. THEY ARE TO HONOR THEM SO, WHEN ASK, I TRY TO CONSIDER IF THE OTHER PERSON HAS MORE TO GIVE TO THE MEMORIAL AND GO FROM THERE. I DO TRANSFERS QUITE A BIT AND WILL CONSIDER ANY REQUEST.

Not of course due to anything I did or deserved, Im am proud that I have 15 direct Grandfathers that served in the Rev.War:

Andreas Matteis Straub 1735-1805
John Peter Hetzel 1742-1810
Leonard Schnepp 1753-1825
John Martin Apple 1752-1823
Geoge Yeakley 1738-1784
Christian Deppen 1705-1781
Wiliam Isaiah McNeese 1730-1808
Michael Berger 1736-1794
James Cotter 1740-
John Hartman Dittemore 1735-1782
Michael Nehs 1730-1815
Daniel Cain 1747-1851
Michael Berger 1736-1794
Jacob (Kile) Coil 1734-t
Thomas Pamphilion
Joseph Schnepp (patriot)
Enoch Weaver (worked towards the revolution



THE GIFT OF LIFE,A PRECIOUS GIFT, WE MORTALS TAKE FOR GRANTED, AND THOSE DEAR ONES WE LOVE SO MUCH IN OUR MEMORIES ARE IMPLANTED.

SO WE PASS OUR MEMORIES DOWN TO THOSE WE LEAVE BEHIND, AND TELL THEM OF OUR EARTHLY LOVE FOR THOSE WHO'VE BEEN SO KIND.

WE THINK OF THOSE BEFORE US, AS WE'RE STROLLING DOWN LIFE'S LANE, A DROP OF LOVE FROM EACH OF THEM FLOWS WARMLY THROUGH OUR VEINS.

THEY FOUGHT SO GALLANTLY IN WAR, BRAVELY SETTLED NEW FRONTIERS, TO MAKE OUR LAND A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE IN LATER YEARS.

OH YES! LIKE US, THEY MADE MISTAKES, AND SOMETIMES DELIBERATELY. ONCE THEY WERE YOUNG AND HUMAN, JUST LIKE YOU AND ME.

WHILE WANDERING THROUGH THE LIVES FROM WHOM WE HAVE BEGOTTEN, OUR OWN LIFE STORY COMES TO MIND. LEST WE TOO, BE FORGOTTEN.

AND WHEN OUR DAYS ARE OVER, OUR TIME ON EARTH IS SERVED, MAY OUR LIVES BE REMEMBERED, OUR MEMORIES BE PRESERVED.

ARRIVING AT THE PEARLY GATES, THE GOOD LORD SHOWS US IN. AND THEN HE TURNS TO US AND SAYS,
"PLEASE , MEET YOUR EARLY KIN."

DO WE LOWER OUR EYES AND DROP OUR HEADS, AND SAY TO HIM IN SHAME, "I'M SORRY SIR, IN MY MORTAL LIFE I NEVER HEARD YOUR NAME."

BUT NO! WE'LL RAISE OUR CHINS UP HIGH TO MEET HIS STEADY GAZE, AND SAY, "OH YES! I KNOW YOU FROM YOUR EARLY DAYS."

SOME WROTE THE STORY OF HOW YOU LIVED YOUR LIFE, OF HAPPINESS AND JOY, AND YES,SOMETIMES OF STRIFE.

MAY THE STORY OF LIFE CONTINUE OF THE OLDER ONES SO WISE, AS DESCENDANTS ARRIVE IN HEAVEN, OUR NAMES THEY'LL RECOGNIZE.

(Guess which ones we will be. And we have fun doing this too!!!)

RE: James Burr McKee 124393894
Hi Linda.
I'm a very distant cousin of James B. McKee. I have just located the death record of his son James Jr. and created a memorial for him and linked him to his father. Census info was also added to his memorial. I also located existing memorials for James and Antoinette's other children and sent edit requests to link them to James. I have had no luck locating a death record for Antoinette. Perhaps she remarried after James's death but I have found no record.
Good luck with your search and let me know if you find her!
Thanks
Fay

RE: Volentine Gile/Coil
Linda,

Thanks for all the information.

My George Coil was born about 1830 in Pendleton Co, (West) Virginia.

You spoke of Ruddell's Station. The time, 1780, The Revolutionary War. The attackers, a large force of Canadians and Indians, under the command of notorious Col. Byrd (or Bird), a British officer.

Some of the captured were taken to Detroit before being released. Most were simply released at Rudell's or Martin's Stations. George Washington was not around and was probably not even aware of the event.

RE: Hello
Linda,

Valentine is my 6th Great Grandfather thru his son George. George's daughter Margaret Elizabeth married Johan Phillip Fultz/Voltz. Their son Peter married Christina Carr. Their Daughter Elizabeth married Joseph Henry Boughn/Baughn (my 2nd GGF.

Martin's two children also moved to Fayette County, Ohio, Both Valentine & Mary are buried there.

I don't have much on the Coil family, but ask and I will answer what I know.

Shiles
Linda....very interesting about Eli Shiles as his stoeyhas confused the heck out of many of us. There has been a Shiles presence in lower and Eastern MD/DE since the immigrant Thomas Shiles showed up there very early...the 1660s/70s. The family expanded and spread over the years and most are traceable back to Thomas. The weird thing is, there is a line that ends up in the very same area of Broad Creek hundred in Sussex Co DE that Eli is in. This area was Somerset Co., MD until the lower boundary of MD and DE was established in 1750 and 1763 by te various authorities. The area is very rural and it makes me wonder why someone would settle there for international business. Plus, the Shiles name is not all that common. Was Eli a cousin from across the pond or was he really a native of DE?

I don't descend from Eli, Jesse Shiles, born about the same time as Eli, is my ancestor and he descends some sort of way from Thomas Shiles the immigrant. I need to get a copy of this Eli book!!. It's either a big coincidence that he's a Shiles in a rural location with no family connection to the native family of Shiles that had been there for 100 years already or he's a cousin from England or somewhere. It's intriguing for sure. Cardiff is definitely not a local name either.

Thx for writing....I'd appreciate any more ideas...also, if you get your hands on that book, I'd love to know more what it says!

Eli Shiles
Hi - I've been working the Shiles line for years. Elias is of the DE Shiles line - probably a Thomas or Joshua Shiles. Write me and we can compare notes.

RE: Cotter
Dear Linda,
I would love to get whatever you have on my line. How do I get you my address securely? I am just now resolving an identity theft issue that has plagued me for 3 years ( by the way Lifelock does rock).
