Bio and Links
Bio Photo My Tribute for my Mom, Patricia Helen "Tricia" Knapp Hetzler, entries for Memorial Garden - Church Of The Incarnation, honoring departed souls, families, friends and parishioners. Uploads are completed Dec 7, 2016. Thank you Christina for assistance.

Veterans, thank you for your service. Open my flag to see related veterans I found.

A FindAGrave Link: Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery, I have taken to see that photos are completed for each memorial, genealogy links researched for their ancestors and descendants. NOTE: The Following Link Is To My Ancestry Tree For The Cemetery, An Ancestry Membership Is Needed To Access or, Ask Me For An Invitation If Needed, I will Send one. Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery.

Hello, Glad to meet you. I am on call for memorial photos. I live in Weddington, NC (Union County) This site has been great, as I seem to make new friends and meet many cousins that I may have not known otherwise. My hobbies include photography and genealogy, this site has my interest on both of these.

Family ancestor lines keep expanding and I keep learning history. This is a journey. Listen to the stories they have.

They are family members.
They are
immigrants,
settlers,
innovators,
leaders,
farmers,
shoemakers,
plumbers,
cattle ranchers,
Horse Brokers Union Army needed many!,
locomotive engineers,
planners,
household mothers and fathers,
stone masons,
Metallurgists,
iron workers,
Foundry Owner,
grocers,
merchants,
infants,
tailors,
moulders,
ice merchants,
engineers,
builders, developers, realtors,
Priests,
Ministers,
deliverymen,
cabinetmakers.

Unknowingly, I lived places ancestors had previously settled. A 3rd Great grandfather had emigrated from Bavaria, Germany to Rochester, N. Y., where I was born. Another Third Great grandfather emigrated from Saarland Germany to Steuben County, N.Y., near where I went to college.

A 6th Great grandfather lived and died in Addison, Vermont, 35 miles line of sight from where our three children were born and raised in Brookfield, VT. The builder of that home was a veteran of the War of 1812. The home was built prior to prior to 1800, the timbers were first growth Spruce, Ash and Maple. Beams over 40-FT, boards wider than 42-IN. Its first owner had moved from Connecticut in 1820, leaving the County my maternal ancestors lived.

My 10th Great grandfather settled Stamford prior to 1680. Even now, where I live in the Carolina, I learn of a Grand Aunt having lived in Hendersonville, nearer our present home in the Carolinas. The education continues with military heroics.

Learning a 7th Great grandfather was KIA on board on Lake Erie during the French and Indian War in 1756, seeing many ancestors with service in the Revolutionary War. A 5th Great grand uncle, Joseph Turner, a Revolutionary War Veteran is buried in Fort Ann, NY at the Blossom Farm Cemetery. More, reviewing ancestors pension papers for the War of 1812.

Reading service records of 2nd Great grandfather who served in the Civil War, along side his brother Jacob, who were at Appomattox, April 9, 1865 . Hearing from a Great niece of his who has the sabre he used. The opportunity to hold a Great grandfather's military discharge orders from the Spanish American War.

Opportunity to read commendations of a Father-In-Law's service, Memorial# 107185570, in WW II during his 4 years and 4 months service from Northern Africa through Italy and finishes the campaign in Eastern Germany.

Meeting a cousin whose Uncle served WW I and WWII as a Medical Doctor. Learning of the citations of ancestors' received during the Korean War. Not to ignore recent military heroes.

Last Checked only 50 (2.0%) of my 2,430 suggested "edits" sent (family lineage) have been declined. I strive to improve) Thank You.

When someone says they are a Tenth generation descendant, you may ask them who their other 1,023 8th Great grandparents are. ; ). We have eight 1st Great grandparents, 256 6th Great grandparents and 4,096 10th Great grand parents. Last report I have located memorials for 16 of my 10th Great grandparents (13th Generation).

Regards
Greg Hetzler

# 129862587. RE: Your Denton photo requests
Really interesting, Greg, to find out about your ancestor and to learn more about our town. We'll try again if you've got more requests for other cemeteries in the Greenwich/Stamford area.

Your Denton photo requests
Many of the older stones at Union Cemetery in Greenwich are unreadable due to acid rain. My son and I looked for your stone for nearly an hour today in this smallish graveyard, but no luck.

There are newer Denton family stones that are readable, however.

RE: Jane Augusta Armstrong #38859064
So question, how did you come up with Lucina "Barber"
Was she a relative of Betsey's...
Yes, I am sure it's frowned on for doing what I have done
And yes they are very much paying attention to what I am
Doing. I just did Charles Wright Armstrongs page. He is
where our family connects into. George Chandler Armstrong
wrote about his father Lee (History of Defiance Co. Ohio)
And the book ended up at Cornell. I found references along my journey for W D Armtrong and new it was William Decatur. I still don't know if he(Lee) was a good man or a complete jerk. Charles Wright was listed as Paralpsis as cause of death - no money So was he buried with Abby at Forders Cemetary, the farm, Paupers grave....
Charles and Abby Jane Handy connect
To Frank Henry and LouesaBelle Chaffen Armstrong
then to Charles Orville and Jessie May Kelso Armstrong
then to my Father in law and to us, children, and grands.

Back to Lee Armstrong, one daughter and other family was found in Michigan, daughter in law was a Handy and I found Handys In Dekalb County, IN from Connecticut same age as Lee So did he follow family or group from the EastCoast....both
and did he possibly marry a relative of Betsey's and just dump
all the kids and start over.

One child died in 1843 listed with Krafft Cemetary. Nancy was
Listed in 1850 census so ? Who is the child

I saw your name on Sophronia Shipmans page as well, so I
Was able to connect you were following the family too. Thanks
For the info and someday maybe I will be able to afford
Ancestry and some of these other sites....Dawn

Jane Augusta Armstrong #38859064
I have been trying to attach all the children of
Mary Spafford from Connecticut and Lee Armstrong
Decatur Co, Indiana and your name popped up with
Jane Augusta and there was a reference to a Barbour
Collection Pre 1870 Marriages for Connecticut. Her
Brother Leander Alonzo was born in Conn. and died
In Hampden Co Massachusetts and was listed as
Married. This is the first lead I've gotten. Would he also
be listed in that collection. The family was so scattered
and still working on the puzzle. Leander's number
#36567141. I keep going backwards and adding notes/
with flowers when I can, just adding in missing links.
Thanks if you can help. Dawn

I noticed you added a photo of a cemetery record to the wrong "Hendrick Brat". You posted the photo to 84357437, it should have been posted to 116655950.

RE: Memorial# 150651175
Thanks, Greg. I also have him in 2 Ancestry trees I created for my stepson and my granddaughter. I updated his bio and linked his memorial to Find A Grave memorials for his parents and a sister. I will take good care of him, and thanks again for your kind initiative.
