I was wondering if you would remove the photo of my father that you added to his memorial. I have something else planned.

You left a note that he is an ancestor so this should be quite interesting. I have made a suggestion it be added to his bio.
VETERANS ADINI STRAIT: ON Washington July 11, 1936

Mrs. C. M. Steimetz
545 Centre Avenue
Reading, Pennsylvania.

Dear Madam:

Reference is made to your letter in which you request the
Revolutionary War record of George Beaver, who resided in Franklin
County, Pennsylvania, at the time he applied for pension.
The data given herein were found in the papers on file in
pension claim, 3. 39985, based upon service of George Beaver in the Revolutionary War. George Beaver enlisted in Berks County, Pennsylvania, in January 1776, in Captain Caleb North's company. Colonel Anthony Wayne's 4th Battalion, Pennsylvania troops, at the end of three months was transferred to Captain Thomas Church's company of Riflemen, was engaged in the battle of Three Rivers, Canada, and after serving one year, was discharged in Chester County, Pennsylvania, He was allowed pension on his application executed October 20, 1819, at which time he resided in Peterstown, Franklin County, Pennsylvania, In 1822, George Beaver went to Montgomery County, Virginia, taught school part of the years 1823 and 1324, and returned in July 1828 to Franklin County, Pennsylvania, vrtiere he lived with one of his married daughters. On August 12, 1828, he gave his age as seventy- three years and three months, but did not state the place os his birth nor give the names of his parents.
In 1828, the soldier's family consisted of five married daughters, three of whom resided in Montgomery County, Virginia, and the other two in Franklin County, Pennsylvania, and four married sons. He did not give the names of his children, nor the name of his wife. In 1828, James Edwards, the soldier's son-in-law, then of Franklin County, Pennsylvania, stated that he had taken George Beaver to Montgomery County, Virginia, in 1822, and had brought him back to Franklin County, Pennsylvania, in 1828, In order to obtain the date of last payment of pension, name of person paid, and, possibly, the date of death of George Beaver, you should
apply to the Comptroller General, General Accounting Office, Records Division, this city and cite the following:
George Beaver
Certificate #15997
Issued November 30, 1819
Rate of f8 per month
Commenced October 20, 1819
Act of March 13, 1818
Pennsylvania Agency

RE: Ogden picture
I did get your message, I just haven't had a chance to put it in the mail yet. I have been back and forth to the hospital for the last couple weeks with my Mother In Law. I will get it sent this week, thank you for your reminder and patience.

Ogden picture
I have the original of the picture of John and Elizabeth that you shared. The original has Elizabeth holding Phillip as a baby. I acquired it at a flea market in NC. Would you be interested in it? Also I see Smith in your Bio. My Mom was a Smith and had family from Nebraska, Iowa, Washington (state). Any connection?

Beverly, I see that you created a memorial for Micheal and was not aware at the time as to where he was buried. My wife and I are indexing the Brethren Cemetery, southwest of Elkhart, and found his tombstone in the same row with his parents Street and Mary. I recommend you move your memorial to the Brethren Cemetery and then I can add the tombstone picture and family links if that is agreeable to you?
