The back of the item says, "Marlin Zeigler and Mother." It came from stuff I got at an auction in Perry County, which is where I live. I have the image scanned and could send it to you. Contact me. I would like to make sure this photo - at least the image if not the original - gets preserved for their family.|
|Comments:||Hi Linda, what a great job you have done with your genealogy website. I found you when I googled J Coble photographer Newport. I have an unidentified picture, negative #402, same setting (rug, curtain) as your #399 but a different chair. I don't know if there could be any connection. I have a connection to Zeiglers. My gggg grandmother was first married to Daniel Zeigler (I think possibly Martin's brother). He died young in 1816 and she remarried a Hufferd. He was a shoemaker and his son, Jonathan, also a shoemaker, was partner with a Lahr in Millerstown. I would love to hear anything more you know about Martin Zeigler, and compare notes/photos.|
|Comments:||Hello! I love your page, especially the Hiatt part. My great grandmother was Mary Lee Gill, and her mother was a Hiatt. I was noticing that the line you are researching has similarities to mine. I have a birth record for My great great grandmother's father, Lawerence Hiatt b. Dec 1853 in Rockcastle to a W. P Hiatt and Mary French. Just wondering if you have come across any of these names in your research.
I am in the middle of transferring all my stuff on ancestry, to my webpage (above) so you can check there, but I haven't gotten everything over there yet. Its a slow process! Thank you and keep up the good work!
|Comments:||I am doing some genealogy and hope your site will help me.
What a sweetie, my mom was married to a Hiatt too, I doubt very seriously that she would take the time to look up my Hiatt roots. I looked up what you had and found this:
Then I worked my way back by continuing to click on their father link, and sure enough, it brought me right to my George and Martha Wakefield Hiatt. You know, there is a site on facebook called Family of George and Martha Hiatt
and we are all eligable for the DAR or SOR by way of George's maternal grandfather, Richard Williams. Check me out on Facebook:

|Comments:||I am also looking up my family heritage since the last of my dad's brothers and sisters have all passed away. I was so pleased to fine you had information on my great grandparents Isaac & Mary Bowman. I am making a family tree for the 9 of us cousins who are left.
Great site! Your cousin Lori Lindgren Voorhees is married into my husband's family. Although I had a lot of information already, your site helped me to round it out. I LOVE all your wonderful stories and pictures - that's what genealogy is all about - keeping the people alive in our memories. Oh, and congrats on being a RAOGK volunteer - though I'm not doing it right now, I have been and I intend to again - it is a wonderful way to help others in the genealogical "family".
First let me say that I have thoroughly enjoyed your web page. My mother passed when I was four years old and I have been trying to gather info. on her family without much luck. I was hoping that maybe you could help me.You see, my mothers maiden name was Ellen Frances Niess and the only info. that I have is that her mothers name was Mary ( I don't know her maiden name ).Her father was Albert Niess and she had a sister named Rose and a brother I believe was named John. My mother was from Pennsylvania, I believe Harrisburgh. She married a man by the name of Leonard Barkanski and had a son that died during infancy and three daughters. She later divorced and married my father Herbert Colvert. Ellen was born on December 28, 1935 and died on January 21, 1975. She resided in Alabama after her marriage to Herbert but her family remained in Pennsylvania. Any information that you may have would be greatly appreciated.Please contact me. Thank you for your time and your hard work and dedication, Michelle

Celia/Sally Bailey married William P. Hiatt in Rockcastle County, KY. She was the daughter of Peter James Bailey and sister to two of my ancestors, Elizabeth and Lucy Bailey. Elizabeth and Lucy married brothers, David and Samuel Parsons. They were brothers to Benjamin Parsons of Renfro Valley, KY. Celia had two children, probably dying shortly after the birth of her daughter, Celia. Her son's name was Bennet. If you have any information, I would love to know anything about them. I would be happy to share the information I have on the Bailey family.

|Name:||Diane (Gruger) Eden|
|Comments:||Hello! I believe Henry S. Gruger is from my Gruger line. I just wanted to know if you have any information to verify who his parents were. Everything else you have lines up with what information I have about him. Here is what I have:
Peter Gruber/Kruger( -1818) md 1807 Margaret Sneider/Snyder
Adam Peter Kruger/Gruger(1808-1891) md 1833 Hannah Catherine Sallada(1815-1897)
Pearson Emanuel Gruger(1834-) md 1858 Rebecca Ellen Metzger(1836-1875)
Henry(Harry) Shumaker Gruger (27 Aug 1874-23 Apr 1956)
...Pearson E was brother to my Great great grandfather, Francis Reuben Gruger, who went west to settle in Kansas.
I believe that Henry was also somewhat of a genealogist himself, as he is listed as author of some descriptions of cemetery listings.
Please let me know if you other information that identifies this Henry. Even though he is not my direct ancestor, I am always interested to know about the siblings & offspring of my Gruger line.
Thank you so much!

very interesting I would love to know how far your work takes you.
Somehow I found your website. I am looking for information on the name Howenstein. It was listed for your site, but there was not definite information there.
Mary Houndstone (Howenstein) married John Snyder, 1824, in Franklin County, Penn. The had four children: Ephraim Snyder, d. 8mos.; Amdam J. Snyder, b. 4/8/1827, d. 1890, Wash. state; John M.P. Snyder, b. March 5, 1829, d. 1913, Wash. state (my gggrandfather); and Sarah Ann Snyder, b. 4/22/1832, d. 1855.
Any family connection? The Ziegler's also married into the Snyder family, at the level of the first offspring of the orginal immigrants, in the late 1700's.
Thanks for your information. I know Mary died and was buried at Falling Spring, Franklin County, Penn. But I cannot find any information on her before the marriage. She was Mennonite.

I found you by doing a search for Bessie Greenawalt Hafer. My mother and I are working on our family tree and we had lost track of her. Bessie would be my great-great-Aunt (sister to Roy Greenawalt, my great-great-grandfather). Please let me know if we can share more information.
|Comments:||My father is from PA and I'v just started this. Grandfather was Leon Traub, Warren Pa. Do you have any info on this family? Perhaps we are connected. He married Mildred King.
Thank you for putting your information out! Your story about Susanna Leader's (German)Bible, Elizabethtown, Lancaster County, 1842, really hit home with me because my mother always told me that she thought her father's side of the family came from Germany, and it appears that that it is likely. Also, she said that they came from Lancaster County PA, and Harrisburg PA. John E. NIESS was my Grandfather, Lived in Washington D.C., his father was John E Niess(b.July 1880)and brother of Edwin A. Niess. I have some photos that I can scan and send to you. Thank you again for your great research. A huge part of my family history just came together! and I just met a relative- Hi Linda.

|Comments:||Hi, was surfing "anything with Benzel name" and came across this site but don't see any Benzels while reading your genealogy. My people came in 1912 as Germans from Russia and lived in Wa. state, Co. and Montana where grandparents are buried. Just recently came across those Benzels who live in the eastern part of U.S. and wondering if we all have a common village in Germany.
I just recently published a novel "Dakota Breezes" at publishamerica.com, go to link "search for books" and type in name of the book to get particulars. I'm so proud of my Benzel name that I use it as my pen name, and dedicatd the book to my late father who gave me the love of reading.

I surmise that his father went by Groff. Would you have a Solomon Groff (Grove) that might match? My Maria Philipbeana Hauenstine (b. abt 1818) was the daughter of a Peter Hauenstine. I also have several other Swiss line that all left Switzerland around 1700. Let me know if any of this sounds familiar and we can share info if they do.

|Comments:||Dear Linda, By coincidence I came across your genealogy page
while searching for the name Estenberg on the web. Like you,
I am a remote descendant of Peter Estenberg. His great-
granddaughter Elsa Sara (b. 1772) had a younger brother, Sven
Svensson (one of the "seven other children"), who in his turn
seems to have had 13 children. One of them was the father of
my mother's grandmother (her mother's mother). I have one
more reason for being interested in Estenberg: He had the
same job as I have. I am professor of Greek language and
literature in the University of Lund and live a few minutes
walk from where he lived (and where his daughter Elsa Sara
was born). The old names keep returning in my family. My
mother's grandmother was called Elsa, and so was one of my
mother's sisters. My eldest daughter is named Sara, and her
eldest daughter was named Elsa. Sincerely yours, Jerker
