+++PLEASE CHECK MY NEW EMAIL ADDRESS+++

All the people I record are my family with the exception of Dateland Fort in Arizona where an entire regiment were killed by the Indians. Recording that one was my pleasure. I also recorded Bethel Cemetery, DeKalb Co., Missouri as most of my mothers family are there. I kept only mine.

PLEASE, WHEN FAG WROTE THE GUIDELINES FOR TRANSFERS, THEY COULD NOT THINK OF EVERYTHING. THE MEMORIALS ARE FOR THE D.E.A.D. AND NOT FOR OURSELVES. THEY ARE TO HONOR THEM SO, WHEN ASK, I TRY TO CONSIDER IF THE OTHER PERSON HAS MORE TO GIVE TO THE MEMORIAL AND GO FROM THERE. I DO TRANSFERS QUITE A BIT AND WILL CONSIDER ANY REQUEST.

Not of course due to anything I did or deserved, Im am proud that I have 15 direct Grandfathers that served in the Rev.War:

Andreas Matteis Straub 1735-1805

THE GIFT OF LIFE,A PRECIOUS GIFT, WE MORTALS TAKE FOR GRANTED, AND THOSE DEAR ONES WE LOVE SO MUCH IN OUR MEMORIES ARE IMPLANTED.

SO WE PASS OUR MEMORIES DOWN TO THOSE WE LEAVE BEHIND, AND TELL THEM OF OUR EARTHLY LOVE FOR THOSE WHO'VE BEEN SO KIND.

WE THINK OF THOSE BEFORE US, AS WE'RE STROLLING DOWN LIFE'S LANE, A DROP OF LOVE FROM EACH OF THEM FLOWS WARMLY THROUGH OUR VEINS.

THEY FOUGHT SO GALLANTLY IN WAR, BRAVELY SETTLED NEW FRONTIERS, TO MAKE OUR LAND A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE IN LATER YEARS.

OH YES! LIKE US, THEY MADE MISTAKES, AND SOMETIMES DELIBERATELY. ONCE THEY WERE YOUNG AND HUMAN, JUST LIKE YOU AND ME.

WHILE WANDERING THROUGH THE LIVES FROM WHOM WE HAVE BEGOTTEN, OUR OWN LIFE STORY COMES TO MIND. LEST WE TOO, BE FORGOTTEN.

AND WHEN OUR DAYS ARE OVER, OUR TIME ON EARTH IS SERVED, MAY OUR LIVES BE REMEMBERED, OUR MEMORIES BE PRESERVED.

ARRIVING AT THE PEARLY GATES, THE GOOD LORD SHOWS US IN. AND THEN HE TURNS TO US AND SAYS,
"PLEASE , MEET YOUR EARLY KIN."

DO WE LOWER OUR EYES AND DROP OUR HEADS, AND SAY TO HIM IN SHAME, "I'M SORRY SIR, IN MY MORTAL LIFE I NEVER HEARD YOUR NAME."

BUT NO! WE'LL RAISE OUR CHINS UP HIGH TO MEET HIS STEADY GAZE, AND SAY, "OH YES! I KNOW YOU FROM YOUR EARLY DAYS."

SOME WROTE THE STORY OF HOW YOU LIVED YOUR LIFE, OF HAPPINESS AND JOY, AND YES,SOMETIMES OF STRIFE.

MAY THE STORY OF LIFE CONTINUE OF THE OLDER ONES SO WISE, AS DESCENDANTS ARRIVE IN HEAVEN, OUR NAMES THEY'LL RECOGNIZE.

(Guess which ones we will be. And we have fun doing this too!!!)

RE: Isaac Dixon
Hi. I am not related to Isaac Dixon. I just visited Greenmount Cemetery and took some photos and tried to do some research on the photos that I took. Are you related? Should I transfer the memorial to you?

RE: Uriah Weaver
Hi Linda,

That's quite all right, I wasn't sure about those 2 and that's why I went ahead and sent them. Don't ever hesitate to ask me if you need transfers.

Have a good weekend! It is beautiful weather for February here in Muncie, Indiana!

Palintine and Baden-W
Hi Linda,
Yes Rhineland Palatinate or Rhineland -Pfalz is new to the 20 the century The state of Rhineland-Palatinate dates from 30 August 1946.[4] It formed from the northern part of the French Occupation Zone, which included:[4]

parts of Bavaria (the Rhenish Palatinate)
the southern parts of the Prussian Rhine Province (including the District of Birkenfeld, which formerly belonged to Oldenburg)
parts of the Prussian Province of Nassau (see Hesse-Nassau)
parts of Hesse-Darmstadt (Rhenish Hesse on the western bank of the Rhine)

A referendum confirmed the state constitution on 18 May 1947.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhineland-Palatinate

And the Webers Weaver's are from Großgartach,Liengarten,and Horkheim, Heilbronn, Baden-Württemberg GER.
Today's Baden-Württemberg is formed from the historical territories of Baden, Prussian Hohenzollern, and the Württemberg part of Swabia.[9]

In 100 AD, The Roman Empire invaded and occupied Württemberg, constructing a limes (fortified boundary zone) along its northern borders. Over the course of the third century AD, the Alamanni forced the Romans to retreat beyond the Rhine and Danube rivers. In 496 AD the Alemanni themselves succumbed to a Frankish invasion led by Clovis I.

After World War II, Allied forces established three federal states in the territory of modern-day Baden-Württemberg: Württemberg-Hohenzollern, Baden, and Württemberg-Baden. Baden and Württemberg-Baden were occupied by France and the United States respectively. In 1949, each state became a founding member of the Federal Republic of Germany, with Article 118 of the German constitution providing an accession procedure. On 16 December 1951, Württemberg-Baden, Württemberg-Hohenzollern and Baden voted in favor of a joint merger via referendum.[6] Baden-Württemberg officially became a state in Germany on 25 April 1952.[6

Dittemore Ref
Mothers Maiden name:

Devorss, John G.
1932-2016

MCMINNVILLE, Ore. JOHN (JACK) GLENN DEVORSS, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and best friend, died on September 13, 2016. John passed peacefully after suffering a heart attack on September 11. He was surrounded by his adult children, adult grandchild, and loving wife of 59 1/2 years. He was 84.

John was born July 29, 1932, to John William DeVorss and Florris Glenn (Dittemore) DeVorss of St. Joseph. He was an only child and stepped up to the responsibility of being the man of the house and farm at the early age of 14, upon the premature passing of his father.

John graduated from Benton High School and finished not only academically at the top of his class, but also proudly served in ROTC and the Rifle Team. After finishing two years at a local community college, John enlisted and served in the Navy during the Korean War.


After his military service, John returned to Missouri, and on March 2, 1957, married Roamona Louise Lewellen, also from St. Joseph, and a graduate of Benton High School.

They chose the adventure of moving to California to start their family. John worked for Bethlehem Steel as their children began to arrive: Glenda Louise, in April 1958, John Bolen, in May of 1960, and Rhonda Kay, in December of 1961.

John was soon after offered a position overseas with CVG Steel as a trainer and teacher, and packed up and moved Roamona and children to Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela, for two years. Upon their return to the U.S., John and Roamona lived in Newark, California, as he was employed by Pacific State Steel; Ashland, Kentucky, with Kentucky Electric Steel; and finally ended up in their forever home in his beloved Pacific Northwest, with Cascade Steel in 1969.

John was a pioneer at Cascade, being one of the first 25 employees hired and helped build the new mill. John enjoyed the wealth of natural resources in Oregon and pursued many years of hunting, fishing and camping with his family up to the time of his retirement in 1997.

He thoroughly enjoyed nearly 20 full years of retirement doing everything he loved: traveling in the U.S., a trip to Spain, a trip to Mexico, and many, many hours on the Oregon coast with his cherished family.

His only grandchild, Nicole, was his treasure and he awoke every morning, simply to have another day with her, and the rest of his family and friends.

He was one of the happiest, wise, caring and kind people to ever grace this planet. He knew no strangers and was a best friend, as well as a father figure to scores of people that loved him and will miss him deeply. They will remember him as a charming, funny, storyteller who loved to laugh and to make others laugh as well.


He was rewarded up to the very end of his 84 years by defying the only things that ever worried him losing his independence, losing his health and losing his mind(!). He bravely passed to his next journey having conquered all his worries, even though he tirelessly and without complaint, managed his many health challenges over the past 10 years.

John is survived by: his beloved wife, Roamona DeVorss; his daughter, Glenda DeVorss-Rose, of Dayton; his son, John (Bobbi) DeVorss, of Carlton; daughter, Rhonda (Karen) DeVorss, of McMinnville; and his precious granddaughter, Nicole, daughter of John and Bobbi.

He will forever be remembered adoringly by his extended family, by his many nieces and nephews, and his great nieces and nephews, as their dearly loved Uncle Jack.

Services will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 1, at the Chapel of Macy & Son.
