I'm a retired registered nurse and zoo docent. Have been really into genealogy these past several years. Most of the ancesters came to the US mid to late 1800's. I'm now living in Dallas Georgia (Paulding County). I really appreciate all the help others have given me and would like to pay it forward by helping others.
Please feel free to use any information or photos as you wish, anywhere.
Bohlander Hi Jan My friend and I are going to start photographing in Calvary Cemetery as soon as the weather breaks. I have sent an edit to link Philip to his parents who are buried in Sacred Heart and to his 3 siblings 2 are already linked with photos attached. John P and Barbara also have photos as well as Barbara's parents. Please let me know if you would like any of them transferred as I am not related. Kathi
RE: Ada Kalinock Hi Jan, Yes I am David John Machamer Jr June 20, 1957. My father is David John Oliver Machamer Sr 12-10-21 to 12-2-2008. Yes! From my records my great grandmother (my fatherís grandmother) Ida Machamer was a Van Houten. Also, Oliver Jonathan Machamer is my great grandfather.
I may have the Elizabeth incorrect for the middle name for my grandmother. From my records my grandmother Maryís maiden name was Jones. From what my mother told me years ago my grandmother was adopted. I donít know where the name Dennis is from unless when my grandmother was adopted her last name was changed to Jones. I wrote the obit for my father David Sr and used Jones as my grandmotherís maiden name. I donít know who my grandmotherís father was but her mother was Ruth Jones who died in 1949 in Sunbury, PA. Robert, Ada, and Mary Lou are my dadís (David Sr.) siblings.
I also show that my grandfather John Oliver Machamer had a brother named Fred who had a daughter named Betty. And also a sister named Ada Machamer married name Clifford another sister named Ruth married name Timm.
RE: Baby Kraeling There is a Emma Kraeling record. She is the only Kraeling that is recorded as being buried in any of the City of Saginaw cemeteries (Oakwood, Brady Hill or Forest Lawn). Is there a possible alternative spelling of the last name?
RE: Gordon Spalt Jan, I did not see a memorial for his wife Clara but I will look again when I go back. I usually photo any others of the same last name if I see them in the area. Tod Homestead has an online site that lets you check for burials and she is not listed there either so I am assuming she is not buried there. Sorry. Sheila
