Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Pattie and my Husband is Tim Brigham. I am the youngest of 11 children of Milton Omer & Mary Elizabeth Keever (Freeman) Lynn Sr. I have been doing Genealogy for over 38 years.

In addition to the guidelines for transferring and adding information I believe in being kind and not possesive. If I ask for a transfer of a distant relative and get that transfer but in the future I am asked for a transfer of that memorial by a direct descendant of that person I will very happily honor that request even if that person is as far down the line as a 10th generation descendant. Genealogy is most important.
I do not wish to have either actual obituaries or Death Certificates added to my memorials. Just a quirk of mine.

Also, if you wish to use my photos anywhere you need to ask permission and add an acknowledge where you obtained the photos and from who. Do not take credit for work you have not done or photos you have not taken. And they have done so without consent from me to use my photo.

Thank You,

Hi Patricia and Timothy, Thanks for the additions you sent for Anna Gregory. I like to confirm info before I make changes and I could not find a source for the place of birth and death. Can you direct me to any sources? Please and thank you. Jane

Elizabeth Shearer Young
Hi Patricia,

I saw you were a descendant of Emanuel Young and Elizabeth Shearer. Elizabeth Shearer as you may know was the daughter of David Shearer and Veronica (Fanny) Funk. My grandmother was Emma Brubaker (Shearer) Hess the greatx2 granddaughter of David and Fanny. I was wondering if you had any additional information on the Shearer family?

Sebastian Nussear
Good afternoon all,

I am looking for where my ancestry was buried. You have placed Sebastian Nussear at New Cathedral Cemetery, but when I called they said they have no record of him being there.

Can you please share your research and or findings as to why you place him there?

RE: Leah Blecker
Hi again. The record for Leah Blecker being buried in Mt. Hebron is in "Names in Stone". It says she was 38 but it is possible the stone was misread and should have said 58. I have found that "Names in Stone" is full of mistakes, some because the old stones are hard to read. I have also asked Mike Hahn to look into his source and hopefully he has a copy of the "Piper List". Up to you about leaving the memorial in. I am currently documenting (walking every row, every section) the entire Zion Lutheran Cemetery and have just been trying to "clean it up". Have already had about 20 memorials removed because they are actually buried in other cemeteries. It happens. Louise

RE: Jeremiah Andrews
LOL I feel your pain, how about emailing me at We could even include Jodie in a round robin if you like, to save on repetition.

Yes, clearly you're right, the trees with the Mont. Co. William Andrews as Mary's father are wrong.

There's a rub with the Franklin Co. William - HIS father (theoretically Jeremiah) is stated as born in MD. Whereas in every census record for our Jeremiah, his birthplace is shown as PA.

Census takers do make mistakes however, and William himself might have been mistaken. I'd like to see more census records for Franklin Co. William and his family group to see if the discrepancy is repeated, or maybe get some additional clues.

RE: Jeremiah Andrews
Would you be able to share the census record you that shows Mary Margaret Andrews living with William Andrews in Franklin Co PA?

RE: Jeremiah Andrews
Thanks for the clarification. It's maddening when a mistake like that multiplies beyond all hope on Although, it's Mary M Andrews' father these other trees indicate came from Montgomery Co (not her husband).

What details are you confident about in regard to your William Andrews, father of your Mary M. Andrews? It would be fun to see if we can place him.

RE: Jeremiah Andrews
I'm guessing your question about Semler/Andrews relationships is from an interest in Mary M Andrews, who was married to a John Semler.

Quickly browsing through several online family trees, it appears that Mary M Andrews SEMLER was not an Andrews from "my" Hagerstown bunch.

Her father was born in Montgomery, MD. Not ruling out a connection farther back, however.

On the other hand - it seems that my Aunt Ruth's husband's mother, Rebecca Semler, WAS a descendant of Lewis Semler - the same as John Semler, Mary A.'s husband.
