+++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, I am proud that I have 15 direct Grandfathers that served in the Rev.War:

APPLE-Johann Martin 1752-1810 Pa.
BERGER-Michael 1736-1794 Virginia
CAIN-Daniel 1747-1851 Virginia
COIL-Jacob 1734-1810 Virginia
COTTER-James 1740-1816 S.Carolina
DEPPEN-Christian 1705-1781 Pa.
DITTEMORE-John Hartman 1735-1782 Massachusetts
HETZEL-Johann Peter Hetzel 1742-1810 Pa.
McNEESE-William Isiah 1730-1808 Tennessee
NEHS-Michael Jr. 1730-1815 Virginia
PAMPHILLION-Thomas 1714-1789 (Patriot)
SCHNEPP-Joseph 1733-1786 (Patriot)
SCHNEPP-Leonard 1753-1825 Pa.
STRAUB-Andreas Matteis 1735-1805 Pa.
WEAVER-Johann Enoch 1725-1806 Pa.
YEAKLEY-George 1738-1884 Pa.

Patriot was given to men who either gave food or shelter to the troop when in need.

George Yeakley was son inlaw to Christian Deppen.

Joseph Schnepp was father of Leonard Schnepp

MY QUAKER ANCESTORS WHO CAME ON SHIPS WITH WILLIAM PENN:

Giles Knight "Society 1682 & wife Mary English
Joseph English "Society" 1682-Marys father
David Fairbanks & wife Ann
Thomas Paschall "Society" 1682 & wife Joanna Sloper
Thomas M. Paschall "Society"
Wiliam Troth & wife Isabelle Harrison
Charles Plumley & Margarey Page bef. 1682
William Plumley & Elizabeth Thompson bef. 1682
(it is possible that they all were on the "Society" and stuck together after the trip. I marked the ones that for sure were on the Society. All were my ancestors)

The Society belonged to William Penn.








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!!!)

John and Catherine Snepp
Linda
My sister entered this memorial and she did extended families when she was bored! LOL
She is gone now and I maintain all her memorials. We are not directly related to John and Catherine. Their daughter Elizabeth was married twice and one of her husbands was John Legate. Legate is our mothers maiden name. Since John and Catherine's children were half siblings to the Legate children she included them in her tree.
Sorry for any confusion!

Charles Dittamore
Hi Linda...See the boarder living with Hattie Dittamore and her husband Simon McKinzie's household in Grangeville, ID on the 1900 US Census. It lists a 24 yr old Missouri born Charles Paris. I think the census taker got the last name wrong and this is one of the many Charles Paris Dittamore's or even another line of Strole couisins i.e. or in-laws rather with the name Charles Paris Strole being passed down. Not sure but gotta be some cousin not just coincidence. This one seems like a possibility given his birth place and year.

I've seen so many instances of the name Charles Paris being passed down, can't recall just where to look, it may take me awhile. I had spotted this right away and forgot to look into it. pc

RE: Mary Ann Nichols Trimble
I saw the 10 messages. :-) Wondered what happened...no worries.

I've been busy the past few days getting ready for my move. In about a month from now, I'll be in my new home. Until then, all my stuff is packed including my family history books.

We definitely have some common relatives in the Nichols line. I do remember that a couple of the sisters married Isley brothers, but would have to look those up for more.

I'll print your message and take a more in-depth look once I get moved and can spend a little time on where the connections fall for us.

Thanks!! I'll be in touch soon.

Penny

Mary Ann Nichols Trimble
Linda,

Good morning! Yes, I am definitely related to Mary Ann and Maud! Mary Ann Nichols was married to Melvin Franklin Trimble -- they are my great-great grandparents. Somewhere along the line Nichols was previously "Nichaels".

Although I don't remember all the stories, I do recall my grandpa, Floyd Trimble, talking about his Aunts and Uncles quite often. Floyd's father was Robert Franklin Trimble. By way of my Aunt Ellen (Floyd's daughter), I have some information on the Dittamore line and a TON on the Trimble line. Grandpa and Aunt Ellen were my catalysts in developing a love for my family history. Ok, I admit -- it's also an obsession! But, a good one.

The last few months I haven't had much time to pick up on my research as much as I would like. I'm in the process of moving to a new home. Once I'm settled, I'll be at it again. I would love to share more on both lines of our family. Sounds like we need to keep in touch! :-) Thanks for reaching out to me!

RE: Fraank Trimble
We were serving a church mission on the Hopi Indian Reservation in 2012-2013. We would go to town (Winslow) for supplies and when we had time we photographed the cemeteries in Winslow and Holbrook. We aren't related to any of the Blacks from Winslow that we know of. We are related to the Merrell family that were early residents of Brigham City, AZ. We hope adding the photos that we took help the relatives of those buried make a connection!
