RE: Chadwick info
okay you did good thanks!!!!

Added by scott r on Feb 24, 2017 1:35 PM

Thank you for your time and efforts with looking for information about Guy Doan and Mary Ditter! I'm just starting to research the Ditter family so to date don't have too much information. Unfortunately my grandmother who was married to John Ditter passed away many years ago along with my mother hence I don't have family to consult with. I did find a photo in my mother's photo album of Guy and Mary Doan on their 60th wedding anniversary. Luckily the back of the photo states that Mary is John's older sister. I was
hoping that you were a distant relative of Guy Doan and could confirm that I'm on the right track.

Frances Schooley Memorial
Hi, Becky,

I've found the memorial you created for Frances Leary Schooley (#168434891) who is buried at the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Buffalo, NY. Frances is my grandfather's sister. Are you related to the Learys or Schooleys? (and by extension to me?)

If you would like to transfer that memorial to me, I will be happy to maintain it. I've just added a photo of Fances on her wedding day.

Thanks for your good work.

Douglas Grant Hertz
Hi Becky,

I found your bio on Douglas Grant HERTZ. I found some newspaper clippings that added new information to our family knowledge of Douglas. However, there are many inaccuracies in what is posted (not your fault). Douglas liked to exaggerate. He even added 10 years to his life and he was born in London not Sutton. I have his birth certificate. If you would like to contact me as, I can correct some of the in accuracies.

Hello Betty,

I'm hoping you can help me learn more about George Doan and his family, more so, his son Guy Doan and his wife Mary Ditter? I realize that your information is directed toward the Doan family but would like to pick your brain for possible information regarding the Ditter families of Kelvington SK.

Thank your in advance for your time in this matter.

Susannah Custer
Becky, If you will check with the DAR, you will find that Dianna Black proved that her mother was from the Elsberry family in Virginia. Not that Susannah Custer did not marry a Daniel Cain, just not our Daniel Cain. Both of them served in the REV WAR but the one Daniel Cain who married Elsberry was the one who also served with Col. Lowther. It has been a really tough thing to prove but it is done now. Daniel Cain had a daughter Hannah Cain that married Samuel Knight. His family came over with William Penn on the "Society" in 1682. Daniel also married a second time to his son inlaws sister, Sarah Knight who was 33 years younger than he. They lived in Greene Co., Ohio at the time. If you will check it out and change the mother, I know a lot of us that would really appreciate it. It takes an act of God to correct a mistake and this has been a wopper. Let me know what you think please. But, even the DAR considers it proven.

By the way, Daniel was my Grandfather and his second wife Sarah, well she is a cousin--I guess that is confusing enough.

Linda J. Morris
This is just too funny Becky. First you search for Doile's for me, then I find out you are into the Zirkle family too. Now I find you have Lowther's too. I have Col.Robert J. Lowther who married Katherine Cain and his father was Col. William Beamer Lowther and Sarh Hughs. I also have his name as being in charge of a unit that one of my ancestors was in. Am I on the wrong track? Katherine Cain was the daughter of Daniel Cain and Miss Elsberry. And it most likely he was the one who was in Col. Lowthers regiment. I come from Daniel Cain too. Anyway, how much more do you know?

Hi Becky,

In the Thomas L Baxter memorial (Find A Grave Memorial# 91744114) there is a bio. Do you remember what the source of it was?

Thanks, Tony

William Lowther
Hi There.

I have checked some more books on Moate and I have found reference to Lowther buried in the Quaker Cemetery. It just gives reference to Lowther from Ballinakill Moate and Tubber Moate. No first names and no headstone.

Thanx for the comeback. Would like to talk one on one more about how we might coordinate efforts to work your sites. You have my e-mail so hope to hear from you directly. Yes Maggie was my second wife.

Hi there. I have checked the book on this cemetery and unfortunately there is no headstone for the person you are looking for. There is also a list of people buried here without a head stone and its also not on this list.

I just checked the bio about this person and I think it may be the wrong location. The pets in who wrote this bio refers to Carlow as the location which is now known as Westmeath. However westmeath and Carlow is are two totally different locations.

This maybe the issue. Regardless, if you want a scan of the book pages, just send me your e-mail and I can forward to you.

Sponsoring a Memorial
Hi Becky:
Looks like you have set up a number of my Hoover and Logsdon,memorials and perhaps some Imthurn and Fankhousers that I haven't stumbled upon. Thanx for your efforts!
If it is agreeable I would like to sponsor some of the memorials but I don't quite understand completely just what I am letting myself in for.
Of course since these would be families that I have researched for 25+ years I have a great deal of information that I could submit to complete the various family groups and am more than willing to do that but due to my advanced age I wouldn't want to take on something that in a few short years would be left to flounder so it would help if you could give me some info or refer me to something that is already published that would ease my concerns before I enter into the endeavor.

Thanx for your efforts on the various families!

Kindest Personal Regards,

Ned Lawrence Hoover

Henry Routt
Hi , My name is Carol Routt and I am working on the Henry Routt family. He was married to Margaret Turner. He is the father of Jesse Routt. His memorial number is 101597593. You have that he is married to Margaret Elizabeth Hill Campbell. That isn't correct. If you look up Jesse J Routt's death certificate Missouri, his mother is listed as Margaret Turner. Margaret also had a son previously, named Millard Turner and in Henry Routt's obituary in the Emporia Weekly Gazette on 23 April 1931, Henry is survived by his widow, a son Jesse Routt of Kansas City, and a stepson, Millard Turner. There could be another Henry Routt, but the father of Jesse Routt was married to Margaret Turner. Thank You, Carol Routt

Additions to Elizabeth Brick Hoover
Dear Becky,

Would you consider adding a bit more onto Elizabeth Brick Hoover's page on the Rainham Mennonite Cemetery? These are the suggested additions:

Elizabetha Brick Hoover was born to Peter Brick and Barbara Eckert on 02 Feb 1815 in Germany. She arrived on the ship Marigo on 11 Aug 1833 in the Port of New York. The family moved to Canada West (Ontario), where she found temporary work amongst Mennonites in the Rainham Settlement. Her parents, and other German Catholic relatives settled in the New Prussia settlement in Waterloo County, and later Formosa in Huran County, Ontario.

Elizabetha married Jacob Hoover and joined the Rainham Mennonite Church, of whom he became the deacon. They had eleven children. She died on 23 Jan 1897 in Haldimand County, Ontario.

* * * * *

If you could add this on, this information might be of value to seekers of Elizabeth's very large amount of descendants.

May the peace of Christ be with you, in this Christmas season!

Peter Hoover
