Some in my family want to believe that we are decedents of John Hanson the first president of the US under the Articles of Confederation. I do not think so as all of the Hansonís at Leverington have middle names of the Hansonís in the New England states. Six of my immediate Hanson family fought in the Civil War. My grandmother was a Hanson.

Steel & Hanson
I noticed in your virtual cemeteries the name Steel. I do not know the connection but my Hanson family buried in Leverington had a few burial sites paid for by [UNK]Hanson and James Steel. Hansons's Joseph, Samuel, John, Joseph,Jr and a few others.

Justin Rhyneer

Hello, I am Justin Rhyneer. I'm searching for the names of the parents of a John Rhyneer, born Jan (1st Month?) 28 1820, died October (10th month) 1906. He's my great, great, great grandfather and I'm hitting a wall with him. I'm guessing the spelling of the last name may have changed prior to 1820 records to any number of derivations of a name associated with German immigrants from the Rhineland. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

RE: Mary Idall

Tom I am not sure where the info is coming from as far as Maiden name spelling the name was Streaper in records for this line. I can put an AKA somehow.

RE: Robert Detweiler Alderfer
Tom. Bob Alderfer was a friend in college. I never saw him again after that.

I really don't know anything about Bob's burial, so I'll leave it to you and the other contributor to sort it out. Remember that obituaries and death certificates frequently have mistakes. The curator of the cemetery should have a record...ditto for the funeral director who buried him.

RE: Edit request denial
Well then will you at least put in the bio that he is the grandson of Peter Abel Memorial #149818716 so those researching can connect more of his linage? Thanks, Kasey
