Bio and Links
I live in central Pennsylvania. I have been interested in genealogy for over 30 years. Most of my research is on the descendants of German immigrant J. Adam Bohlender but I have also served as the K/Catherman Reunion Association genealogist since 1999. Since retiring in 1994 I have traveled tens of thousands of miles to do original research in courthouses, cemeteries and libraries.
I have made every effort to be sure that the information I post is accurate but I'm not perfect so if you see something that you think might be incorrect please contact me. I will also be happy to provide sources for any information I have posted.
Note: Many of the births and deaths I have recorded are attributed to Snyder County, Pennsylvania. Researchers should be aware that Snyder County was not created until 1855. From 1813 through 1854 it was part of Union County. From 1772 through 1812 it was part of Northumberland County.

Ruth Edna Aikey Boney Fenstermacher

Hi, While I have no problem changing the mother from Edna to Esther - because the Census does prove it - the rest of the note is confusing.

" Your note: The Edna Aikey who is buried in Hartleton Cemetery was the second wife of Lewis Calvin Aikey which is verified by her death certificate. There is also an error on her memorial because she is linked to Lewis Calvin Aikey as her father but he was her husband. I have already submitted an edit to get that corrected. I'm willing to send you an edit so you can link her to her correct parents."

There is a 69 year difference between the ages of Edna and Lewis. I would like a copy of the death certificate - and any proof of marriage because I can't find any.

Is there a Ruth Edna Aikey in a different cemetery that is causing the confusion?

Thanks JMartin

Some of the headstones out at the Fort Bliss cemetery are hard to read due to age of the headstone, striations in the marble and etchings on the white marble with no letter darkening. Click on the photo to enlarge and they are easier to read.

Since Bowersock is an unusual name, I went ahead and also took pictures of the other Bowersock buried out at the cemetery. They are Jimmy G and John D Bowersock. Maybe they are related to George Bowersock.

OK, I couldn't find the probate court record to see if Catherine was named or not. Thanks, Mike

Geron Michael
Catherine Bolender Stout
Carl, We communicated previously. First, could you change Geron Michael to Michael Geron? A small change but I would appreciate it. Next, Oddly, my wife is descended from George Stout 1771-1846 through his son, John Stout. This caused me to look at Catherine again. The marriage record Ohio Counties, 1789 - 1994 shows George Stout Jun marrying Catherine Gruber. The jr. is confusing. George Stout 1771 - 1846 does have a son George Stout (ie Jr.) 1797 - 1864 whose wife Elizabeth Crist Stout died in 1838. I would think this George would use the suffix Jr. since his father was alive and well in Fairfield Co. The older George wouldn't be likely to use Jr. since his father died in 1820 in Pennsylvania. Could George Stout 1797 - 1864 be the one who married Catherine Gruber? If so, then there could have been a divorce. I know he is younger than Catherine but she had attracted other husbands, so she was apparently attractive and outgoing.
