Bio and Links
Bio Photo I could care less about the number of memorial that I create. Or that I manage.I am more concerned about recording the persons in the cemetery for all time in the internet where weather, vandalism, and time doesn't degrade a person after they have been laid to rest. I have seen many headstone worn to nothingness, broken by cowardly vandals who take "kicking a man when he's down " way too seriously! The dead in this case are known only to God, they truly become nothing more than another grain of sand!  I try to keep that from happening, as much as I am able. I freely transfer the memorial that I create, I am not stuck on 4th generation criteria. If you are related, you hold more ownership to that person than I! I just hate to have other people step on my toes to glorify their own numbers. It's the deceased that is important in establishing a memorial, not the creator of the memorial page.

RE: Sonner family?

I have Corrells and Corlls in my tree. Are you in any way connected to the Baileys in Mahoning County?

RE: Sonner family?
Hello Bruce,

Thank you for the compliment. No, I have no connection to the Sonners, but I'm related to the Correll's through my Lind line.

RE: Johann Jacob Sonner
If we are talking about the same Johann Jacob Sonner (1797-1872) he is the father of William Sonner who is the father of James Sonner who is the father of Beulah Catheline Sonner Huff - my mother. Johann Jacob is the son of Anthony T. Sonner. Anthony T. is son of Johann Philip Sanner (Sonner) born in Wutenburg, Baden, Germany, died in Strasburg, VA. Both Anthony T. and Johann Philip were supporters and survivors of the Revolutionary War.

Thanks for sharing your family information and let me know if we are talking about the same ancestor.

RE: Paul Taylor
You are welcome for both Paul & Grace Taylor. I hate it when the computer isn't working correctly. When we get home, I will have to take my laptop in but it is still working pretty good. Barb
