+++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!!!)

Linda - I don't know how to transfer unless you request a transfer in your Contribution tools.

RE: John Martin Apple
I live in Cottonwood, about half way between Phx and Flagstaff. Would love to meet with you one of these days. My no. is 928 646-0348. If you want the Apple names at Andersonville, I would be happy to provide them. I also work at our local Family History Center. If there is anything I can do for you at the Center, let me know. I'm always pleased to find a long lost "cousin."

Cotter
My last name is Cotter, and apparently, we are related, however distantly. My father was Charles H. Cotter. He passed in San Luis Obispo from a heart attack in the early 1980's. I can be more precise if you can contact me. I am interested in finding more about ( based on your information), James Cotter.

RE: Winslow
Hi,
Not that town in Okla. Allen families were Stranton, Holdenville---Garvin and Hughes Counties. Names, Blevins, Willoughby, Scott, Gadberry (also in Missouri), and Native American, thus Indian Territory late 1800's.

Never ending is the journey of a tree :)

RE: Schnepps
Hi Linda,

My daughter owns a house in Maricopa (city not county). She is living in CA now & renting it out for the time being.

I don't have anything on the Schnepps other than what I have be able to discover online. I had never even heard of them before I started genealogy.

Some thoughts on our grandfather Joseph Schnepp:

1. I think it likely that he arrived as an indentured servant.(he apparently traveled alone & his young age)

2. He was definitely Catholic at the time of his 1st marriage to Maria Christina. He converted to Lutheran on 11 Apr 1757. "Peter Nahrgang and Joseph Schnepp, confirmed in the Lutheran religion from the Catholic ..." - Personal Register of the Rev. Daniel Schumacher (Ancestry)

3. He seems to have lived in Windsor Township, Berks County during his marriage to his 1st wife, Maria Christina.

4. It is possible that Maria Christina died from child birth. I have daughter Catherina born about 1770.

5. Joseph married 2nd Anna Elizabeth about 1771 (daughter Maria Magdalena born in Jul 1772). He would have needed a mother for Catherina ASAP...

6. By 1773 Joseph lived in Brunswick Township, Berks County & remained there until his death.

7. At the time of his death, Joseph owned 2 parcels of land: 1 of 50 acres, 1 of 100 acres & was a farmer. 1784 tax list shows Leonard having 100 acres, so maybe this is one of the above parcels.

8. There is some connection (10 years) to Johann Jacob Rausch.
a. 24 Nov 1754 baptism - daughter, Susanna, is burned in a fire at home of Jacob Raush in Windsor Township.
b. 21 Feb 1764 baptism - son, Johann Jacob Schnepp in Windsor Township. One of the sponsors is Johann Jacob Raush. I believe Jacob Raush & Johann Jacob Raush are probably the same person & that Joseph's son was likely named for him.
