Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for over 40 years - it is a real passion of mine and I am very happy helping others discover their ancestors! This is a FANTASTIC SITE and it has already filled in some blanks for me. Please let me know if I can help anyone. ~ Catherine

**************************************************

DEAR ANCESTOR

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone
It reaches out to all who care It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I'd exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew that someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Many thanks for the information and links. They're much appreciated. Please note that I've added photos to the memorial.

KS birth is plausible
Family is on Coffey County KS 1880 Census and the state census of 1885.

Ah I see now.
Jennie Hastings had a step-father named Williams... hence Jennie Williams (aka Jennie Hastings).
Now if Townsend was a Civil War vet who moved to KS when land was offered, then moved back, as many did (KS was a shock compared to PA)...that might help the KS assertion.
On the other hand, plenty of vets moved to WI, MI as well in 1870s-1880s for land deals too.

And the informants can be wrong... as was the case with my great grandfather having his oldest brother listed as father... well he was old enough and the other father was deceased shortly after my great grandpa's birth'; raised by his mother and oldest brother (some 30 years older).
Checking more on Campbell.

Death Certs often list the mother's maiden name even though they are married at the time of birth, usually the case with PA Death Certs.

RE: Ola M Trader
No problem. I just transfer Ola to you. Just an FYI I also linked her spouse Robert to her. Cindy

Lentz
No, Jeremiah Lentz is not a relative. When I'm in a cemetery, I photograph stones of surnames that are in my tree. Lots of times they don't fit into the tree at the current time. I think the only Lentzs in my tree at this point are on the side of my late uncle's late wife. She was Reba Geraldine Lentz.

RE: Lentz Memorials
Thanks for letting me know about the Lentz duplicates. I removed mine and added my pictures to yours since there weren't any pictures of the memorials on yours. Jeremiah's marker has his year of death as 1925 instead of 1923, so I'm not sure what that's all about.

RE: Anna Bertha Lentz Stornbaugh
I added Anna Bertha, but still haven't put in siblings. I don't even have their other daughter, Bertha Virginia in here. Too much to do, so little time.
Send me your email address please. Mine is still jmorefld@shentel.net
