Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Endless Mountains of PA. This area includes the counties of Bradford, Sullivan, Susquehanna and Wyoming. Most of my ancestors migrated to northeast PA from New England and settled in this 4 county area. The local Historical Societies are wonderful! I just found Find A Grave and it has been very helpful to me. I want to return the favor!

Robert Gardner Shoemaker
I have Robert Gardner, Minerva, Caroline, Henry Davenport, and Lucy as the children of Robert and Amanda Rogers.

I have Hannah, Miranda, Oncelina, Robert S., Lucy E. (1825), Sally, Catherine, Delen C., Ellen, and Gardner B. as the children of Lud and Lucy Champion.

There is a difference on FindaGrave. Lucy E (1864) would be Robert Gardner's sister according to my stuff.

I have some pictures of the Shoemaker Reunion with "Uncle Gard" if you would be interested sometime.

RE: Daisy Pearl Kostenbauder
Daniel Kostenbauder was her grandfather. He died in 1881. In the 1900 census, Daisy is with her parents, George and Hattie living in Locust Township, Columbia County. In 1920, she's living in Edwardsville with her first husband and mother. By that time, her father was dead.

Her brother, Raymond's, obituary listed brothers and sisters as "Mrs. Edward Frederick, Mrs. Clarence Brotzman, Oscar, Clarence, Albert, and Nelson".

Yes, I am verifying that before sending.

RE: Lucina D Woodruff McMicken
Thank you for making that correction. I try to be careful, but obviously did not get it correct. We have been busy working on getting all the people (that include many Woodruff family members) that are buried in the Skinner's Eddy Cemetery - now known locally as Ghost Hill - memorialized if they have no previous memorial. I was surprised to see Mrs. Lancer McMicken as the informant on James Woodruff's Death Certificate. I never knew Lucinda Woodruff McMicken, but I knew Lancer McMicken in his later years. I have saved a booklet that Lancer authored. Do you have a copy of it? If not, I'd be happy to share it with you.

Lena's Obit
Lena's obit was published in "The Daily Review" dated May 10, 2008 but she didn't die until September of that year?
Help please?

Also, is Michael Jennings still living?
there is no date on the headstone.

RE: Sturdevant
Thanks, like I said this family likes to confuse people I think. LOL

RE: William H. Sturdevant
The image came from the same place the bio came from (Wyoming Valley in the 19th Century by SR Smith, Volume I, Wilkes-Barre Leader Print, 1894), so I deleted it. Again, apologies for any inconvenience caused.

RE: William H. Sturdevant
Thanks for the clarification, and sorry for creating confusion. I will check the image to see whether it can stay or not. Thanks.

Thank you for all the records you comb and the information you put out there.
I have a question on William Henry Sturdevant it says he was born at Braintrim Luzerne County in 1838. But the cemetary record states a date of 1848. I know there are two Wm. H. Sturdevants in the same area. Could you verify the place and date?

Just so you know I think the Sturdevants are a difficult family because they seem like to name their children the same thing as another Sturdevant family in the same area. It drives me crazy.
