RE: Percifield - Tibbitts
We are not related to either names. We belong to Topeka Gen. Society and as such, we have access to the cemetery books that were published by our members which includes every cemetery in Shawnee County dating from inception to the 1970's. So we entered every name that hadn't already been entered on FindAGrave. We knew that there were mistakes in spelling but we are trying to get the names out there so that relatives such as you can tell us when we have made mistakes.
We also read old newspaper obituaries and find information in them such as maiden names, dates, and try to enter them if the manager will allow. We enjoy doing this work and feel that it is helping some researchers to find some of their ancestors. Nancy & Larry

Tibbitts at Pleasant Hill
Thank you for correcting us. We have deleted all the "Tibbits" at Pleasant Hill. The record book that I have was incorrect so I have corrected it as well.

Oh, you are welcome. Georgia Neese is a distant cousin. My mother was a Neese and I followed the trail for the complete connection.

RE: Thank You
Hi Granny Kate ... that is awesome ... To give you some history ...Mary Ann Hertsel was born in Ohio around 1823 ..Her maiden name was Mary Ann Triplett ... she married Jesse Hertsel in 1840 and moved to Whitley County Indiana ... Jesse died Dec 25, 1864 in Whitley County ...sometime between 1864 and 1880 she moved to Mission Creek Twp Kansas and lived with her daughter's family, Charles & Delia Allen ... she had brought her 3 or 4 youngest (of 11 )children with her ... after 1880 four of her children show back up in Cass County Indiana ...All of them added a "l" to the spelling of thier last name making it Hertsell instead of Hertsel ... Mary Ann does not show up in Indiana at all ...I am speculating that after her death and perhaps Delia's death in 1889 the rest of the family relocated ...I have been searching for Mary Ann for quite a while ... BTW ..I am the soul decendent of 5 generations of only children from Mary Ann's youngest child ...Jesse C. Hertsell ... Any information you can find will be greatly appreciated ... Dave

I am tracking my family ..One person in particular I can't find is Delia's mother ...She moved to Kansas and was living with Delia in 1880 at Mission Creek Twp outside of Alma Kansas ....

Thank you again, Dave
