RE: Susan A. Granger
Hi, Eddie. Thank you for updating the record. I agree that she should remain listed in Ann Arbor, and having the note attached is effective. Yes, Susan Delamater Granger is my ancestor. Would it be too much trouble to have her transferred to me?

Thank you for help.

Thanks for your time and all the information as I continue to dig. The Ebaugh family is large and they all have the same first names!!! Easy to go down the wrong branch!

Rachel E Trine Ebaugh
Hi EddieM,
I see that you have an interest in the Trine family and you maintain Rachel E Trine Ebaugh memorial # 10128299. The bio says "However there was also another connection: Noahs brother, Jesse Ebaugh, was married to Rachael Barbara Ellen Trine, the sister of David Urias Trine. I am interested in the Ebaugh family and in particular Jesse Ebaugh and Rachel Trine Ebaugh. I believe she is memorial # 68094056. Do you have any information on either Jesse or Rachel and who are the people on the stone with Rachel? Thank you for your help..Barb #48070356 or

RE: Prudence & John Simpson
From the obit on her page, my guess would be that he is buried back in Ill, most likely in or near Peoria.

RE: Prudence Simpson
You're welcome. Glad to help. I also checked a couple of markers on each side of hers but no John Simpson.

At his daughters request, he was exhumed and moved to a cemetery in Washington, DC. You can contact the Berkeley County Historical Society, in Martinsburg, for additional information.

RE: Walsh Research
Awesome, thanks Eddie. I will check out those resources.

I'm working on a television show and would be willing to pay your cousin for permission to use the photos of the Walsh's. I'd need to get it squared away this as soon as possible though. My direct line is 570-439-1175 or she can email me at

RE: Walsh Family

Wow that's incredible. Thanks for making the information available to other researchers. Would you be able to put me in contact with your cousin? I'm actually doing some research in West Virginia right now. My email information is available in my bio.

I also reached out to Doran/Walsh/Gallagher.

Thanks Eddie,

RE: Joseph Zeigler
I found a Joseph D. Zeigler on the Illinois Civil War musters. He was a 1Lt in the 114th IL US Infantry, mustered in 9-18-1862. Native of Waynesboro, Franklin Co., Pa., living in Springfield, Sangamon County, IL, at the time of enlistment at age 20. The PA connection helps perhaps.

RE: Joseph Zeigler
It appears the photo may be correctly matched but of course I cannot say for sure. In the 1881 Bios of this county, Joseph's father Henry was stated to be from Franklin Co., Pa. You can read that info here:

I have no other info regarding this man or his family other than what is already posted and the above info but can look around for any other tibits a bit later.

Thank you and Merry Christmas!

RE: Charles Gersch
Thank you for your work too. It is fun to walk the cemeteries.
I would love to have Charles, Augusta, Minnie and Augusta the little one, Transferred to me.
I am not sure if there are others in that cemetery of mine, but if they are, I will write again.

Charles Gersch
By the way, are you related to him?

Added by Laurie on Dec 19, 2016 10:07 AM

RE: Charles Gersch
Charles Gersch is the son of Ludwig Gersch who is born 22 Apr 1827 and Henrietta Ritter 8 Jul 1826
He is the brother of my great grandfather Gustav Friedich Gersch 1850-1903
Charles first wife is Augusta Poegel 13 Feb 1862-25 Dec 1862 and his second wife is Minnie Schwartz, 1858-1943-- both are on the same monument.
Web: Illinois, Select Deaths Index, 1877-1916
Name Chas Gersch
Birth Year abt 1856
Age 52 Yr
Death Date 21 Apr 1908
Death Place Chicago, Cook, Illinois

I think the monument is either wrong or the date is not seen correctly. I have walked and recorded many cemeteries and others have seen the dates differently and I then can see the correct year.

RE: Margaret Sillix Photo Credit
Glad you are alright with the photo credit.

I will keep my eye out for your Minter and Lozier updates.

Good hunting and have a happy Thanksgiving, Patricia

RE: Margaret Sillix
Good morning. Thank you for the transfer. It is nice that another unknown child is found.

If you look at Margaret in my tree you will see I have added the headstone picture. Is this form of photo credit acceptable to you or would you like something different. It is very easy for me to change.

Havve a good day cousin.

Regards, Patricia

RE: Julia Lozier Sillix
Hello Cousin: Thank you for the transfer.

I searched for information on Julia regularly, and only recently found much. Her last name eluded me for years. Now, thanks to you, I know her resting place.

I don't have any information on the child. Their daughter Catharine Elizabeth Sillix Bowen was supposedly born May 1, 1851, but that information came from a death certificate not a birth. I will keep looking.

Back to Mary Ann Sillix Bitner. On several of her children's vital records Mary's maiden name is listed as Hoffman, Huffman, Huff, Hoff.

Thank you again for the transfers, I will take good care of them.

Regards, Patricia

RE: Mary Ann Sillix Bitner
Mary Ann Sillix Bitner preceeded her mother Catharine Minter Sillix in death. In Catharine's will she bequeathed Mary's portion of her estate to Mary's children.

Checking census records for Mary I found her with her husband, Tobias, and her children matching that listed in her mothers will.

Bequest to Mary's Children:
1. Daughter-in-law Harriet Nouse Bitner, wife of James Andrew Bitner
2. George W Bitner
3. Lucinda Bitner Weber
4. Sarah C Bitner Homer
5. Son-in-law: Jacob Homer, husband of Sarah
6. Martha Jane Bitner Nouse
7. David Clark D C Bitner
8. William Bitner
9. Mary E Bitner Weimer

RE: Catharine Minter Sillix
Thank you for the transfers and the sponsorships. Is is a wonderful gift.

In a prior message I was trying to say that I think both Mary Magdalene Hoffman 18171916 and Mary Ann Sillix 18231873 were the biological daughters of Henry Hoffman. Henry did not die until February 2, 1824, about two months after Mary Ann was born.

If there is ever anything I can do to aid your searches please let me know.

Regards, Patricia
