  1. Hi! Your “contact us” form has a broken link. I’m researching your very same line of Springsteens, and I’d like to share information. I have located a brother and other family of your John b. abt. 1782.

    1. Hi Kimberly-

      Thanks for letting me know about the broken link- must have happened with the last update.

      I would love to share info on the Springsteens- how are you related?

      1. My friend descends from a James Springsteel (“l” not “n”) who is almost certainly a brother, son or nephew of your John and Mary Springsteen. The “L” ending of the surname appears on John’s entry on the 1820 census in Crosby, Hamilton, Ohio. I can also tell you what this family was manufacturing in 1820.

        Can you email me at k.platt@jacksonandplattgenealogy.com for more details?

        1. Also, the Springsteels we’re tracing use the more common Springsteen spelling almost interchangeably. Apparently, Dutch surnames and their spellings were a lot more flexible, and an “l” or “n” were attached to the end of a surname as a term of endearment, much like “-ita” in Spanish.

  2. Where is this graveyard located? We have searched and searched and can not find it. Henry Weidner is one of our relatives and we would like to see where he is buried. So if you could email me the directions from Charlotte NC to there it would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Hi Gina-

      I am forwarding this on to my co-editor. Sorry for the delay- your note was in spam plus we have had big problems with the blog technically.

      Thanks for reading, and if you would like to add pictures or a post about this family line, just let us know!

  3. Hello,
    Quite by chance I started looking at blogs. Mostly want to find my great grandfather Barrett Smith who lived in Edgar County, IL. And that is how I found your blog. The particular day you were writing about the McKelveys. My ex-husband’s mother is a McKelvey. I have a James McKelvey in their tree (I am the one that does the genealogy) who was born in 1843 in Ohio. I have no other particulars. My challenge is to stay away from relatives that married with the Boyds. Apparently they are not my line. I would love to know if this might be your family.
    James: 1843 Ohio, died aft 1910 Ohio. Married Margaret Hutchinson (1850-1920) and had four daughters, Anna Luella (1869-1956), Nancy Isabelle (1872-1926), Mae (1884-1971) and Mary L (1888-1978). I believe James father is Joseph who was born in or around 1816 in Pennsylvania (my work has taken me to Westmoreland County, PA more than once but I have found nothing to make that a fact). I think Joseph is the son of Edward who came from Ireland and move to Belmont County, Ohio. He can be found at his son’s house in 1850.I find him as early as 1830 in Belmont County, Ohio. Edward’s sons (and all he had were sons) were, William (1806-1884), Samuel Robert (1808-1846), Andrew (1809-1865), Edward (1811 – ?) Matthew (1813-1860), Joseph, John (1819-1877)and Robert (1820-1884).
    Let me know if this is a match to your family.
    Thanks, Debra

    1. Hi Debra-

      What great timing! I had 3 McKelvey posts this week and then another on Matilda L. McKelvey at http://heritageramblings.net/2014/05/06/tombstone-tuesday-matilda-macelvey-beerbower/

      I appreciate you including your McKelvey details in your note, but sadly none of your dates or names fit with the little I know about our line. I just don’t know anything about any generation before Matilda, and not even about her before her marriage. I also looked at the report sent by the other McKelvey researcher, and none of your info fits with his. Apparently McKelvey was a more common name than I thought.

      Have you looked at the McKelvey book on FamilySearch? (Source #4 on today’s post & online.) I can’t remember all that was in it and it was mostly Illinois and Iowa, so probably also not your line but maybe worth a look. I have not seen any other compiled genealogies on this family, but keep looking.

      I will keep your note and if I find anything that fits, I will let you know. Please let me know if you find any of ‘my’ McKelveys in your travels. Happy hunting!

  4. I am researching my brother-in-law’s family. Currently I am working on Edward Payne. I am finding a wealth of information on him but specifically I am looking for Nancy”nannie” burnell Payne. Do you have her cause of death? I am curious. Thanks,

  5. I have something that belonged to Samuel T Beerbower and am looking for the right relative to give it to, please respond. Thank you.

  6. Hi, I’m trying to reach Pamela McMurray about her research regarding Buster Brodie. I may be able to answer a few questions for her. Years ago I wrote the book “The Munchkins of Oz”. I was most likely the first to publish information about Buster’s work in “The Wizard of Oz.” Steve Cox
