I am sorry that it came down to this as I dislike having to make a little request. Regarding Obits/funeral notices you may find for memorials I maintain at Chestnut Hill Cemetery, Portville, Cattaraugus County, NY. I have access to all the newspapers in the area and I am posting obits. as fast as my little fingers will go. Please don't send me a obit. for one I haven't got to yet, I will get to it soon. If you have a obit. or funeral notice for one of my memorials that is from, other than, Chestnut Hill Cemetery please feel free to send them. Thank You!

Maria was my 4th great grandmother. May I use your gravestone photograph for online family trees and personal photo albums? I would credit you as photographer on it. Either way, thank you for taking the photograph. It's wonderful being able to see it!

RE: Elizabeth Howard Slagle
My direct lineage in the Heller side goes to the founder of Hellertown,PA. Prior to that, they're all from Germany. Now once in Hellertown, siblings may have broken off towards Lancaster so that's a very good possibility.

As for the Hoovers, you're guess is as good as mine!

Hi Mark,

I would be connected as a distant cousin to the Slagle family. Elizabeth A. Howard Slagle had a sister, Esther Jane Howard Heller. Esther Jane Heller is my great great grandmother.

As far as the Hoover side of my family, I haven't traced them back very far yet. The Hoover family I have traced is still in my area (Boggs Twp/Templeton PA) so that is a work in progress as well.

RE: Elizabeth Ann (Armstrong) Arhibald
Its all right. Thank you so much for transferring those memorials to me. I have made all the appropriate changes and linkages to them that I know of. By the way, the Nov/Dec 2015 issue of "Family Chronicle"(now called "Your Genealogy Today") will he out later next month. It has an article I wrote called "Who is Alfred Betts?" about the years of research it took me to find the relationship between John Morris and his neighbor, Alfred Betts in Eldred Township. It begins with the 1847 personal agreement between John Morris and Alfred Betts found in the McKean county Courthouse. Alfred's mother, Mary "Polly" (Chamberlain) Betts Pinkerton Morris, being married three times, was the second wife of John Morris. That research located the relationships of the Betts, Pinkertons, Morrises, Archibalds, Armstrongs, Skeels, Scofields, Gregorys, Parishes, Houses and Couchs follows a route from 1820 Saratoga county to Olean, Portville, and Eldred out to Kansas where descendants still live.

RE: Lucas Family
Hi, Mark!

I had some of the info on Daniel and Philip. You just added to my stash.

From the sources I've seen, Peter married Polly Fahringer (Ferringer). There are still many families with that last name in this area of western Pennsylvania. I need to follow the Ferringer path a bit more. I think they appear on the ships' passengers' lists from about the same time the Lucases came over in 1740 aboard the Lydia.
