Hi - a question - the birth date given in your memorial for my 3rd great-uncle George Henry Marion Bowers of Chambersburg PA is 29 January 1839.

Yet the photographed headstone is inscribed "25 Dec 1838".

You're welcome! You're able to read the stone okay? He was hard to get to.

Hello Dennis, I am trying to learn more info in regards to my thrice great grandfather James A Nicholson. I was wondering where you learned he was the son of William and Catherine Nicholson?

In the History of Big Spring Presbyterian Church, I read of William and Catharine "Nickle" that weds in 1827, the only other "Nickle" mentioned is a John. I also read of Richard and James "Nicholson".

In the History of Franklin County, I find several "Nicholson" members, Scot-Irish Presbyterians. It also mentions that Anna M. Nickles, born in Letterkenny Twp, Was the daughter of William and Catherine (Myers) Nickles who marries Hugh C. Cover. William Nickles came from Germany to this county in 1827.

Appreciate any help. Thank you in advance.

RE: Dennis John Crimmins second wife
Dennis married first Cecelia Smith abt 1862, who died in 1899.
Dennis then married Emma Rebecca Fortenbaugh on Nov 11, 1892.
After Dennis died on Oct 13, 1909, Emma Rebecca Crimmins then married Samuel Clark Crawford on Aug 18, 1914. At the time of their marriage, both Emma and her new husband Samuel Clark Crawford were WIDOWED.
Samuel Clark Crawford had previously been married to Emma Husan, who had died on Aug 8, 1913 (abt. a year before he married Emma Rebecca Fortenbaugh Crimmins.

Thanks so much for your help!
