Thank you...
for letting me know about the duplication of my memorial for Rev Henry Andrew. Harry is the name in the stone, but church records (he was in seminary at death ) say Henry, and he was probably named for his father's father Henry. Anyway, even though mine was there first, the other contributor has his memorial linked to family and has a picture so to make it easier, I suggested he take my bio info, add it to his, and then I'll delete mine. Thanks once more for letting me know so we could clean this up.

Edit for J Frank McMichael
I believe that the mother of J Frank McMichael (#113526853) is Esther Ann Steele McMichael (#41652380) at Mt. Hope United Methodist. Esther Ann Steele was third wife to James McMichael. Hester Phillips died in 1860. I guess Hester and Esther wives could have been confusing for lots of people! Actually Esther was called Annie, at least in censuses.

Israel & Levina Zimmerman
Tom, I just found out that my great grandfather, Rudolph S Carpenter's (#141804026) parents were Israel & Levina Zimmerman, #'s 87024600 & 87024631.
I question spelling of Levina's maiden name. I have it as Levina Seiber, you have it Levinia Seber. Which is correct? Looks like only one "i" on headstone.

Rebecca Hastings Edit.
You're welcome, Tom! I love reading these out of print books on Ancestry, because they provide so much info!! I really enjoyed reading through J. H. BRYSON'S LANCASTER DIRECTORY for 1843, last night, that had many ads that were quite interesting! I'm still on the search for which Company in Lancaster, produced my late Grandmother's baby cup, given her in 1895, but it was made in 1851, in Lancaster, Pa. It states on the bottom, "Quadruple Plate". Any ideas?

Monsieur Donahue,

I just signed up on findagrave and started looking around. A question: my mother's grandfather was a James Hensel, born in 1906, with a brother Warren W. They were both in the Cecil County 1920 census. James was buried at Cherry Hill(basically where I live in Cecil). I'm just wondering if it's certain that the James Hensek listed as a "calculated relationship" is the actual sibling of the Warren William you listed. Being new to this, not sure how to check the things for myself. Thanks!
