John H. Hensel memorials
My memorial #113941232 for John H. Hensel is the correct one. I personally took the photo of his gravestone in the Mount Zion Cemetery at Peach Bottom, Lancaster Co., PA. I have been trying without any luck to get the person who put him in the WRONG Mount Zion Cemetery (Find A Grave #8485846) to delete it for a couple of years. I get no response. This person incorrectly put five members of the Hensel family in the Ephrata, PA Mount Zion Cemetery.

Good Morning Tom,
I checked the death certificate of Ora Ellis Blackburn and it says she was buried in Williamson Family Cemetery, Rising Sun, Maryland. I see you have added a photo of the memorial. Am I to understand that you took this picture in Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church, Pilottown Rd, Peach Bottom, PA ?
If that is the case the death certificate must be wrong and I will make the change.
Please confirm.

I've updated this entry with the obit. The month of death was Oct. 1902, but I changed it based on the obit.

You recently sent me a change notice on her, so I am following up.

Thank You

By the way I was absent from Find A Grave for about four months because my husband and I were looking for a house. We found one that we love and it's in Quarryville. Actually closer to Georgetown. So now my research will be very much southern Lancaster County related.

Many thanks for the transfer. So I guess we're distant cousins.

Rosella (Booz) Scott (133910164)
Thanks for finding her and connecting her to husband Benjamin Franklin Scott. Their death certificates give exactly the same address as the place of death. Benjamin was a brother of my great great grandfather William H. Scott. You will see I submitted a few edits for Rosella, including month and year and place of birth. I have done a lot of research on this branch of the family. Benjamin and Rosella had several children. I haven't yet found their graves. I notice you have a virtual cemetery for the Booz family, so you may be related to Rosella. If you're not, I'd appreciate a transfer, given my own family connection, as explained above.

Fanny Redman
Sorry, the phone rang and startled me and I hit something on the key board that sent the message. That was the first time. The second time, just now, I don't know what I did.

Anyhow, my source is a release of heirs of David Myers, Fanny's father, which lists her husband as Jacob Redman of Eden Township. I don't know if Jacob was married more than once. Fanny's mother was Mary Homsher Myers. Is this helpful?

If I find anything new on it I'll let you know.

Thanks, Stephanie

The above is my 2nd cousin. If not a relation of yours I would like his transfer. I have additional information and connections to include.

Thank you,
