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!
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".
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.
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.
Sturdevant 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.
