you sent me this - I had you unlink him from Phoebe, as I found out he was the son of Solomon's first wife, whose grave I cannot locate at this time.


so you want me to reconnect them? you want to connect him with Phoebe? or just to leave a note

Phebe Purdy Ellet Cemetery
Hi Zella,

I linked Gurdon & Phebe as spouses and linked Solomon as Gurdon's father. I also put an explanation of where Gurdon is buried in the bio.

If you have the correct birth & death dates for Phebe, I'll be happy to put them in her bio.

What a mess. wow!

Laura Kenworthy Low

Thank you for the message. I was working on Laura's information very late the other night so when I created her memorial, I placed her with her daughter with the intention of continuing my research for her the next morning. I got distracted with another family line so thank you for reminding me. She was married four times and I found all but Mr. Low. Luckily, I found her obit this afternoon and it provided both his name and her burial location. Based on his obit, they were buried together in Toledo Memorial Park.

Kind regards, Jamie

Charity Ann Albertson
Speculate! Ugh, I hate misspellings! BTW I just read your bio. Really wonderful what you are doing with the older and hard to read stones. I believe Charity Ann Albertson is one of those graves that is hard to read and probably broken and forgotten. (Because she died young and her husband remarried, started a new family...) She may be buried in Fairview cemetery. (

RE: Angeline Johnson
Hi Zella,

Her name is screwed up alot on documents. But Angeline is the name that is repeated with some regularity.

I have been checking into her mother who I believe is Charity Ann Albertson (so do a few other people) but there is no real solid proof.

William McHenry had two wives. George Lott McHenry 's death certificate lists Albertson as his mother with no first name.

Also Angeline may have wanted to be called something else as she aged.

We can only seculate...

Aquilla White - Memorial# 48706684
Hello Zella,
I saw that you visited this McDowell Cemetery in Altoona and you made this tribute in 2010. I believe this might be my husbands relative, Aquilla White. This is not a common name, and I was wondering what you remember about this grave and where I might find out more information. We visited it a year ago and it was so over grown, we couldn't distinguish which headstone was his.
Any more info you could remember or point us in any direction, would truly be appreciated.

Margaret Middleswarth married Charles P Frain
Reuben Middlesworth is my great grandfather's brother. He is the son of Moses Middleswarth born 1810 and his wife Eliza Houtz born 1813.
They lived in Snyder County Pennsylvania.

Reuben Middlesworth moved from Beavertown, Snyder County Pennsylvania to Jasper County Indiana.
His first wife was Sabrina Kern, and when she died he married Sophia Smith in 1870.
Margaret's parents are Reuben Middlesworth and Sabrina Kern. (1st wife)
In 1872, Reuben Middlesworth died - from what i can gather, he was a Shoemaker and his son Ammon Middlesworth developed measles or scarlet fever, and Reuben and Ammon both died from that in 1872.

Here is the proof that Margaret Middlesworth is the daughter of Reuben Middlesworth.

1860 Fed Census Beavertown Snyder Co Pa -
Reuben Middleswarth 25 yrs born abt 1835 Pa
Sabina Middleswarth 23 yrs born abt 1834 Pa
Almon Middleswarth 5 yrs born abt 1855 Pa
>Margaret Middleswarth 3yrs**born abt 1857 Pa
Ellen Middleswarth 1 yr born abt 1859 Pa

Margaret is 3 years old and born in 1857 Pa

1870 Fed Census Remington Jasper Co Indiana
Reuben Middlesworth 35 born abt 1835 Pa
Sophia Middlesworth 25 (2nd wife)
Ammon Middlesworth 14
William Middlesworth 9
>Margaret Middlesworth 12 born abt 1858 Pa

1920 Fed Census Akron Ward 3, Summit Ohio
born Pennsylvania
Spouse Charles P Frain
father born Pa
mother born Pa

1930 Fed Census Akron, Summit Co Ohio
Margaret Frain
born abt 1854 Pennsylvania
father born in Pa
mother born in Pa

I know this because about 50 family members shared information and we found out how we were all related. I have many cousins from Moses Middleswarth line. Also the Snyder County Historical society in Snyder County Pa has 4 loose-leaf binders on this family, because Moses Middleswarth, Reuben's father, was the son of Ner Middleswarth born 1783 NJ and Christina Schwartzkop, and Ner Middleswarth was a Senator and Congressman in Snyder County Pa.
I am trying to get all the history correct. I have spent much time since 1999 on this Middleswarth family.
Thank you for any help you can give me in getting these records straight. It is very important to our family.

I knew that I had the information somewhere. Both obits were on the same page! Talk about right church, wrong pew! Anyway, here is what is found in The Christian Recorder ITEM #41922 -

Died, March 20th, at fifteen minutes before one o'clock, ALICE, daughter of Thomas and Mary SHARTER, aged r years, and 7 months, and 19 days. Her parents have lost a dear child - the youngest of the family; but their loss is the departed one's gain. The Sabbath School has also lost one of it's youth attendants. Her illness extended through a space of several weeks. She has gone to the Sabbath School above, where her teacher will be JESUS CHRIST, who died for her.

Died, April 27th, at twenty minutes before 6 o'clock in the morning, SARAH TAMSON SHARTER, aged seven years, ten months, and three days. She was, also, the daughter of Thomas and Mary Sharter. She was ill about ten weeks. During that time it was my lot to pray with her and for her, and when I noticed the sufferings of these children, it caused me to think what sin has done; but, on the other hand, I hear Jesus say, "Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of heaven." Here we see that Jesus loves little children as well as old people, and none are so small that Jesus will not stoop down and take them in his arms, and put his arms upon them, and bless them. (There are several more paragraphs which I will not include because of its length)

I just found another obit for Harold Maxwell Osborne dated one day later reading that he would be buried at Holy Cross Cemetery as I originall had. So hold off on adding the grave photo you have of him and 1st wife June at the Glendale Cemetery.

Thanks again

Cemetery Change

I changed Harold Maxwell Osborne's burial location to Glendale Cemetery. I now have access to older newspapers and found his obit and he was buried in Glendale Cemetery not Holy Cross Cemetery as I original had on his memorial. Can you add the photo you have on his 1st wife's (June) memorial to his.
