+++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:

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




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: George Fletcher Clark Jr. and Evelyn Reisner
Hi Linda,

On May 9, you sent me this msg:
George Fletcher Clark Jr. and Evelyn Reisner
I am taking a guess here, are you related to this family? You see, they were from the same family way up the tree. If you are, will you contact me.

I had contacted you , but heard no response.

What is your link to the above persons?

George Fletcher Clark Jr is my wife's 2nd cousin, once removed with the common ancestor of Franklin J. Clark, b. 1832.

Her grandmother was Pauline Adelia (Clark) Miller (1900-1991). Find A Grave #43698836

I have identified several of her Clark family members from the Jasper Co, IL area.

Hi Linda,

in response to your request on May 9, "George Fletcher Clark Jr. and Evelyn Reisner
I am taking a guess here, are you related to this family? You see, they were from the same family way up the tree. If you are, will you contact me.", I have replied twice.
I thought you wanted to correspond????

Joseph Gray
I have transferred Joseph's memorial over to you. You don't need to transfer it back. He is not my relative.

RE: Elizabeth Ann Myers Gray
These are graves I added to Find A Grave. As far as I know, I am not related to them. I am related to some Myers/Meyers...Bartholomew Myers (1814-1904). He is my 3rd Great Grandfather. He married Barbra Bigle. I don't have a lot on his line. My search has them with 3 children...Catherine, Jacob and Mary. If they had more children, I am unaware. I don't have any information on their parents or their siblings. They lived in Shelby and Rush county.

RE: Fairbanks--Gray
I don't believe I am related to any Grays or Fairbanks. I don't have any of them in my tree.
You must have me mistaken with someone else.

13th Generation Fairbanks in America
RE: Fairbanks family
I don't know how accurate this is, but on a family tree on Ancestry, I see that James' father was also James (1710-1768) who was married to Elizabeth Neal (1710-1837). That James' father is listed as John (1670-1760) who was married to Mary Battson (1670-1715). James, James and John are all shown as being born in Talbot County, MD.

John's father is listed as David Fairbank born in England in 1650 and died in 1717 in Talbot County. He was married to Anne (no maiden name shown) born 1650 and died 1715 in Talbot County. It shows that David arrived in America in1680 but I don't think that date is right because John was born in 1670 in MD. There is no back-up reference for the arrival date.

The tree doesn't go any further back than David.

My Fairbanks line descends from the New England Fairbanks family. Jonathan came to America in 1633. I have researched the Fairbanks Family in America book which lists generations from 1633-1897 but your line isn't in there because it only covers the decendants of Jonathan and Grace of Dedham, MA.

Jonathan was from Sowerby, Yorkshire, England. Maybe our lines are connected somewhere in England, but further research is required.

Again, I took the info on James from someone's personal tree on Ancestry, so all the family links are based on that research.

Hope this gives you a starting point.
