Who are you looking for? Cemetery near West End (Temperance)
Comments:
Thomas Black died August 1862 at the age of twelve. He was killed on the Little Saw Mill run coal railway. He was riding on a train, and was thrown off by the jolting of the cars, one of which passed over him
We believe him to be a son of John and Sarah Black (GGGrandparents of mine# and I am trying to find where he might have been buried and hoping there is some information as to his family. John and Sarah was last alive in 1865, in 1870 they were no where to be found. In that census all of the children was living with a married sister who had married J.J. Evans with the exception of Thomas Black, plus Mary L. and J.J. named one of their sons Thomas.
We are trying to get parents of John at least and Sarah #don't have maiden name) so we can go on researching our Black family.

Who are you looking for? Victor and Helen Bauer Family
Where did they live in the Carnegie area? Boroview Ave in Glendale
Comments:
Victor and Helen Erb Bauer were my grandparents. They lived first in a duplex at the corner of an alley and Boroview Ave, then in the late 1940's they purchased the house of Dr Black at 100 Boroview Ave, across the street from Dr Ramsey. The Bauer House at 100 Boroview Av overlooks about a 2 acre downslope to Carothers Ave and looks over the Glendale Firemen's Club. Children of Victor and Helen are Victor Jr, Bette Healey, Bill Bauer, Clare Davin and Bert Bauer. I would like to know which Catholic Church my grandmother would have belonged to when the family was younger so I can search for records. Any information would be wonderful. Thank you!

What are their surnames? Bibey-Black -Dowling
Comments:
I would like to meet someone who is part of any of the above names. My family tree is fine with the exception of where my grandmother and grandfather Bibey were married, John Black and wife Sarah were my Great Great Grandparents and I can't find who their parents were, Dowling was my Great Great Grandparents I don't have his given name but Sarah PARKS was her name/ their daughter Anna Eliza Dowling married Elijah Phillips and I can't find where. He was a Teamster but died 17 Jun 1897 in Carnegie. I believe Anna Eliza and her parents were from Virginia.

Anyone related through any of these families?
Contact me please.

Comments:
Hi Terry.
I enjoyed seeing my dad's old photos on the website and hope other families see relatives in the team pictures. Just wanted to point out one typo in the photo of my dad and his brother: William Joseph and Howard Brown Winstein. The last name is misspelled. Dad was descended from Henri Windstein (born 1809) whose "d" was lost in his naturalization papers. The family has spelled it Winstein since then. The caption under the photo says "Weinstein." Thanks for posting the photos.

Who are you looking for? a research for an ancestor
Where did they live in the Carnegie area? Collier area
What are their surnames? Ernest Bisi
Comments:
Hello,
I write you from Italy because I need an help.
An ancestor of mine, Mr. Ernesto Bisi, in 1896 built a macaroni factory in Collier (Ewingsville), Carnegie. The plant that was very close to the Panhandle Railroad was called "United States Macaroni Factory". In 1907, at the age of 48 year, my ancestor died and the bussines of the pasta passed to the management of the wife Emilia Bisi (Biagiotti). I don’t know if the Bisi family kept the plant open until 1917ca. but I found that in that year Mr. Salvatore Viviani and his brothers bought the plant and the house of my ancestor to found the VIMCO empire. I found a story of Rev. Milton M. Allison pastor of the Coalbrook Presbyterian Church, Neffs, Ohio, written in an article of the writer Jean Walker and published in July 26, 2000. In this article (almost at the end) a little story of Bisi and Viviano (VIMCO) is described. I had been able to find the indenture where my ancestor bought the ground for 2500 USD the 28th September 1895, from Mr. James Wing, but it is not easy to understand where the ground was situated. I’d like to know how the Bisi Macaroni Factory ended...and some information about my ancestor.

Can you help me?

Sincerely

Luciano Garbi (from Italy)

Hello,
I'm looking for some more information about my ancestor Ernest Bisi who first founded in 1896 the United States Macaroni Factory (near railroad)in Collier,Carnegie. I know that he bought the land in 1895 for the construcrion of the factory from Mr. James A. Ewing for 2500 USD...
I also discovered that in 1917 ca. the factory was bought by Viviano Family (VIMCO). Does not exist the VIMCO building yet? I'd like very much to see where my ancestor Bisi early factory was located.
Sorry for the trouble and thanks for your cooperation.

Where did they live in the Carnegie area? Mansfield, PA
What are their surnames? Shaffer, Blake, Hallas
Comments:
I discovered tonight (on a rootsweb Allegheny deaths site which referenced your historical society)that William J. Shaffer was killed in Washington. We have his wife Alice Shaffer's bible in which she shows her address as Mansfield, PA. William was her second husband. Her daughter Annie J. Blake sometimes used Shaffer as her name. Annie dropped the Shaffer later. Annie J. Shaffer married William J. Hallas. I have been having trouble finding info about William except for his death date (from a funeral card I have which was printed in Cumberland, OH). I suspect he met Alice in Illinois or Missouri, then they moved East perhaps because he was from the area originally or because of work. If you can provide any assistance I would be greatful.

My message is for the families of the buried at the Chartiers Cemetery. The Cemetery has posted signs on the clean up at the cemetery. This year the clean up has included Eternal Lights and again Military Markers (the ones that hold the flags). I have contacted the American Legion Post 82 out of Carnegie PA Commander Charles Magnus. And I have also paid a visit to the Cemetery myself. I was advised that both must be removed in the winter to prevent anyone getting hurt.

On a land issue for timber culture act. Erastus was listed as living in Chartiers in 1888. In 1904 the land issue was cancelled. He had a brother John and Augustus Homer who is my great grandfather. All my records just say they came from western Pennsylvania so this land record was a break through. I see Chartiers as being part of Pittsburgh, if that's correct. From other sources he was to have followed an oil company to Texas. Which one that would be I don't know. Any information would be great... thank you!

THE DRIFTERS: A CHRISTIAN HISTORICAL NOVEL ABOUT THE MELUNGEON SHANTYBOAT PEOPLE

THE DRIFTERS: A CHRISTIAN HISTORICAL NOVEL OF THE MELUNGEON SHANTY BOAT PEOPLE
Tonya Holmes Shook, Marquette Books, 2005, $19.95, pb, 311pp, 092299319X
This novel takes place in America, beginning around the 1830s and ending after the Civil War. The characters, Melungeon shanty boat people, are a biracial mix of Cherokee and Caucasian bloodlines. Their story is told through the viewpoint of the main character, Harriet Holmes. Created by the author around known portions of the author’s family history, the novel is a fictionalized biography of Harriet’s life. Photographs of Holmes family members, including Harriet, appear throughout. The book opens with Harriet pregnant, fifteen-years-old, and newly married to shanty boat dweller Canady Holmes. Through Harriet’s experiences, the reader learns of societal wrongs suffered by the clannish Melungeon people, who must hide from Indian removal. The Holmes family barely scratches out a living as they travel along the rivers of Kentucky, Virginia, and Tennessee. The tension created by this family’s struggle for survival and the hardships they endure during and after the Civil War carries the story.
The author does not spare her characters from brutalities in this riveting tale. Indeed, if a flaw in this tale could be found, it may be that the reader must suspend belief to accept that so much tragedy could happen to one family and that the mother of that family could come through it all with self and sensibilities intact. Readers will be curious to learn how brushes with Christians along the way help Harriet to have hope for the future of her family.
This novel will elicit every emotion from a reader, as it is a love story as well as an account of suffering. The author’s fine storytelling, coupled with believable and endearing characters, presents an unforgettable tale. This fast-paced, dramatic narrative will draw those interested in Native American history, and will also most certainly provide enjoyable reading for a wider audience.
Judith Carroll

Aulena Scearce Gibson, columnist for the Lawton Constitution's "Tree Tracers", reviewed the novel with these words: "a wonderful novel- comparable to Alex Haley's, Roots."

Preface

Before the settlement of Jamestown there lived a people in America who built houses and had a complex social order, but history books have little record of them. They trace their ancestry to Portugal, Spain, North Africa, Turkey and Greece and to Native Americans, with whom they intermingled. According to old Mediterranean Library records, their countrymen were taken as slaves of the Vikings seeking to colonize the new world. But they eventually were abandoned, left to survive as best they could in a foreign land. As the generations passed, these people acquired certain physical and cultural characteristics that distinguished them from European ancestors. They were called Melungeons.

Dr. N. Brent Kennedy, author of The Melungeons, The Resurrection of a Proud People: An Untold Story of Ethnic Cleansing in America, has researched the genetic and cultural peculiarities known to this people. Like African American slaves and Native American peoples, the Melungeons were treated unfairly by the European settlers, who forced them off their land. They were tagged as “free people of colorö and at one time were prohibited from owning land, attending school, and marrying outside of their “own kindö except in Kentucky.

The ill treatment of the Melungeon people helped create a distinctive and clannish folk that had low self-esteem and peculiar ways. A mixture of Mediterranean and Indian blood, they were a developing race who clung to their own tried and proven traditions, who trusted no one outside of family and married among themselves.

This novel tells the story of one Melungeon family. It is based on word of mouth stories from descendants of Harriett Riddle Holmes, my great-great grandmother who began her married life on a houseboat during the same year as the Trail of Tears. She survived through dire times of the Civil War, experienced heartaches relating to her sons William and Jasper, and relocated to Texas after the war where some of her sons participated in cattle drives.

This story begins in the southeastern Cumberland area of Kentucky in l837. Harriett Holmes was a real person, but one with no history, or none that is readily traced, a phenomenon common to the lineage of the Melungeon people. Many tried to assimilate into the dominant society, but the rejection caused them to be more clannish than ever. Harriett had few friends outside of the kinship clan. This social isolation contributed to a development of a unique culture, one that the reader will vicariously explore in this book.

This book is basically a fictionalized biography. Her name, children’s names, and story line are factual, but the glue cementing accounts together comes from my imagination. I hope the reader finds this book enjoyable and educational.

Where did they live in the Carnegie area? unsure
What are their surnames? Grove
Comments:
i'm looking for the family of Hugh Grove. His first wife had died, when he met and married my grandmother, Ida Frances Jenkins Campbell. My mother, was Very Jane Campbell and her own brother was Bernard. she always spoke of her two stepbrothers with much affection. I believe one was named Kenny and one was Huck, Buck or something in that nature. Grandpa Hugh died before my parents were married, but my mother adored him and always spoke of him kindly. Hugh is buried with his first wife, I think her name was Marie.

Comments:
my mother's favorite cousin was adelaide. when we visited pittsburgh from dela, we would always visit them on carlysle st. adelaide was a rather tall & large woman who made us laugh all the time. Her husband John, had one leg amputated. our visits of course, were when i was a girl back in the 60's. i'm sure john & adelaide are both gone now, but i wondered if anyone knew Dale and where she might be now. i just can't remember their last name.

Who are you looking for? 1870 marriage records
Where did they live in the Carnegie area? Red Row??
What are their surnames? pollock, chillson
Comments:
After the marriage of James Pollock and my aunt, Mary Baumiller, they moved to Scotland for ten years before returning to Mansfield Boro in 1880. On the Scottish birth records for the eldest four children, it says that James and Mary were married in "Coal Hill, Mansfield Boro, Allegheny, County, Pennsylvania." After they moved back in 1880 they lived in a section of the city called Red Row. I have a picture of the house in which they lived. I suspect that James and Mary had a civil marriage as Mary was German Evangelical and James was Scottish. Since Masfield boro wasn't incorporated until 1872, would it be correct to assume that they were married in Carnegie. I haven't seen any mention of a lost town called "coal hill" either. Been looking for this info for fifteen years. any help would be appreciated

Comments:
In earlier messages I was looking for Anna Eliza Phillips, well, I found where and when she was buried. At Chartiers.
She died in 1917 and at that time Maude Heberle was the informant.
On the death certificate her fathers name (no given)looks like Dowling and no place of birth, her mother looks like Sarah Parks with not place of birth. Anna's place of birth was listed a West Virginia but no other information.
So in regards to who I am looking for? Here are the names pertaining to Anna Eliza Phillips:
Phillips
Heberle
Guthrie
Dowling/Douling
Parks

Also, any Bibey that might be related. Anna Eliza Phillips and Elijah Phillips were the parents of my Grandmother Anna May Phillips/Bibey, she married Alfred Bibey. They were both born in Carnegie/Pittsburgh area.

Anyone, that might be researching any of these names, please contact me. I would very much appreciate it.

Anna Eliza Douling married Elijah Phillips. "Annie" was born 1846 either in Pennsylvania, Virginai or West Virginia, she posted all three on three different census. She was last listed in the 1910 census living with her step-daughter Maude PHILLIPS/HEBERLE. "annie" died somewhere and is buried somewhere, I just don't know where. Maude and her husband are buried in Chartiers cem. They were last living in Midway, Leslie sent me obits for both, no mention of Annie but one son Charles E/Elmer who worked for the railroad and a Margaret GUTHRIE (maiden name?) who the Heberle's raised from childhood.
I would appreciate anyone who knew this family or are related to please contact me. I really want to continue on with this line and can not until I find out "Annie's" parents and where she was born. Thanks.

Just a brief correction. The GREAT Terry asked if one of the names that I have as McDino could be McDine. Yes, after looking over the signature that is what it is. My previous post may still have other spelling errors. I left off some names that I just can't decipher. I will attempt to try my best to list them here but be aware I may be close but not accurate.

If I can get the old scanner going I will try to scan the images in and if they come out good I will post them on our web site. I will provide a direct link later if it works out okay.

I am going to post this to the Carnegie Rootsweb list also, just in case some people aren't subscribed or just happen by this great site. My grandmother Sophia Kinney maiden Wentzel passed away in 1953, anyone find an obit for this, Terry? I found out that a William Zethner may be related, a cousin of my dad's. I don't know what side of the family though, Kinney or Wentzel. Here is what I gleaned from my grandmother's funeral book. I don't know any of the entries, maybe someone knows? If you do I would surely love to have correspondence with them or their relatives.

Comments:
These people are getting away with neglect, accountability, and respect for the dead. People really trust cemetery owners to keep their grave sites and general grounds in good condition in reverence of the sacred deceased and in honor of the people who pay a handsome price for services. I have stopped by to discuss my concerns with Tom and Karen Kerr of 742 Nobelstown Rd. just across the street from this garbage dump. I have documentation, several pictures, witnesses, dates, times, informal and formal communications with the Chartiers staff and will be exposing all of this to the Pennsylvania State Complaint Hotline, local media and others as I deem necessary to obtain satisfaction if my demands are not met. My demands are that my parents' memorial be correctly set in a footer and in a stable condition as I was promised at the time of their death. In addition, I just paid and received a deed for two burial plots next to my parents' location. I want a total refund of my money for the two plots. My Interment Deed No. is 4173 and cost $1,720.00. I do not want to be buried in this garbage dump.

Thanks to you all at Historical Society of Carnegie, I found out Grandfather Conley's first name by finding his wife's Death Notice in a 1925 Carnegie Signal Item.

The city directories are on microfilm at the Carnegie Library in Oakland and are a wonderful resource for ancestors you can't find in the census records.

Edward Bibey died May 13, 1952, the informant on his death certificate was Mrs. Mildred Price. She gave 116 8th Ave. as address for both. However, she did not know her fathers parents names. Mildred and her husband were living with Edward and his Mary/Marian in the 1930 census. I would very much like to hear from anyone that has information on any Bibeys and any one relatd to Mildred Price nee:Bibey. I am trying to get this for genealogy purposes. My family has been very difficult to trace all the children for some reason. Wish I would have paid more attention when I was little.

What are their surnames? Phillips
Comments:
In 1910 Anna E. Phillips was living with Frank C. HABARLE in Carnegie. This information given in census.
Frank C. Habarle age 42, birth place Wisconsin Head of household. Other residents: Maud J. age 40, b. Pa.,wife
Charles E. age 21, b. Pa, son
Margaret J. 12,b.Pa,adopt. daug.
Anna E. PHILLIPS age 63, b. West
Virginia, mother-in-law.
Anna Eliza Phillips nee: Douling was the second wife to Elijah Phillips. Maud J. was his daughter from his first marriage, hence the mother-in-law. Annie as she is refered to in most of the census has placed her birth state as Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania, however for some unknown reason we feel West Virginia is the place. However, we can't find further information. I have queries on message boards in all three states besides the Carnegie one and this site. We would hope someone knows of the HABARLE,PHILLIPS OR DOULING families and if so please contact me. Even if someone knows when she died and where, we can at least send for her death certificate and hopefully get her parents names and where she as well as they came from. Please someone help!

Who are you looking for? relatives
Where did they live in the Carnegie area? various
What are their surnames? Bibey, Aston, Phillips, Douling, Black
Comments:
If anyone knows someone with a connection to any of these surnames, I would appreciate letting me know. In particular (Garfield) James Aston and his wife Ella Louise. They lived with John and Lois Bibey in the 1920's and later moved to California. He worked for the railroad. We know quite a bit about Garfield James but Ella Louise is still a mystery. On her death certificate (Garfield James) information given as to her parents - father John Bybee, England - mother unknown. John and Lois Bibey supposedly had a daughater named Ella but we can't make the connection at this time.
Anna Eliza Phillips (my great grandmother, maternal) maiden name was Douling, we have not been able to find any further information on her or her parents.
Hope someone can help, I know there were children and marriages occured and surnames changed, so if you have relatives from the past that had these names I hope you will contact me.

Does anyone remember my great grandfather, George Richard Hilton?

For many years in the early 1900s he sold heating and lamp oil from a wagon in Carnegie and Heidelberg. After retiring, he served as janitor of Heidelberg School, where he encouraged students--and gave them music lessons--to be involved in the community band that he led.

He died in 1940, before I was born. I have seen only one photo of him and thought someone out there must have a record of him--perhaps an old school yearbook, newspaper clipping, business photo, etc.


Thanks in advance,

BILL

My grandfather, John A. Sommers came from Ireland and was naturalized in 1884 according to the 1910 census. He and his wife, Maria Rosina Gray, (England) were married Oct. 10, 1898. She later signed her name as Rose M. Gray. I believe they lived in Hazelwood PA or Sharon PA. They had 4 children, Rose (1902), John (1904), Elmer (1905) and Ralph James (1911). I believe John Sommers died April 18, 1912 at the age of 36. I am trying to find either John or Rose's parents names or when Rose died and where in PA.
Thanks

Margorie Lois Bibey went by Lois Bibey, she married for the first time sometime in the 1940's. Can't remember her husbands surname. Her second husbands surname was Nagy. Lois was a professor in San Diego, Ca where she died. She had a daughter and we can't remember her given name or what happened to her. At one time we believe she was a Rhodes Schoolar but don't know what years. She is probably married by now and maybe has children of her own. We want to get in touch with her because we believe she might have our Grandmother Bibeys "Family Bible". At least we are hoping she has it. If anyone has any information please contact me at my e-mail address.
Thank you.

I have in the guestbook all of these names at least once many more than that. Terry, wants to have a mailing list and I think its a good idea. I belong to several lists from England and I read every e-mail that comes through. As you go, though, the subject is a clue to if you want to read a particular one if you are in a hurry or if you've been gone for awhile and have hundreds of mail. So that is the one thing I would advise people to do, be sure you write a surname you are looking for and always in CAPS.
I think its a good idea.

Anyways if anyone would know how to find a picture of the flower shop let me know please

>>They were Catholic any ideas what cemetery they may be buried at?? Both
their obits say "place of buriel" Carnegie PA. Esther died Nov. 16, 1913 and
was buried Nov. 19, 1913. <<<


I would take a guess that two leading candidates would be Mt. Olivet Cemetery
and St. Joseph Cemetery. Both are very close to Carnegie (and I have
Carnegie ancestors buried in both). Mt. Olivet is just off of SwallowHill
Road -- a tiny bit north of Carnegie, but only about a two or three minute
drive on some main roads. St. Joseph is another old cemetery just north of
the old center of town. It's also very close, though a little bit trickier
to find for the uninitiated. Located at the top of Magazine Street.

Your best bet is to call St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church, which oversees both
cemeteries. There is no office at either cemetery. You can reach them at
412-276-1011. I would definitely try calling several days
before you come.

Lots of luck.

These were my great-great grandparents. They lived 42 years in Carnegie PA, had 10 children there and are buried there. I will be in PA Aug 9 any help/advice you can give me. They moved to Struthers Ohio around 1909. I have looked at the 1900 census and cannot find them. Do you have Census for 1870 and 1880? They were Catholic any ideas what cemetery they may be buried at?? Both their obits say "place of buriel" Carnegie PA. Esther died Nov. 16, 1913 and was buried Nov. 19, 1913. Thomas died April 25, 1914 and was buried April 29, 1914. The obit said they were taken to the home of their son Charles Gallagher, who resided in Carnegie PA.

I was really hoping to visit their grave and take pictures for my records.

I am also looking for immigration/naturalization records for both. Thomas was born in Ireland and Esther in England.

Elijah Phillips and Annie/Anna Eliza/Eliza Douling were my great grandparents on my maternal side. My Grandmother and siblings were all born in Carnegie but in the 1910 census Anna E. Phillips was listed as living with another family, listed as mother-in-law in Washington, Washington County. I have been trying for months to find her maiden name and now I have it I don't know how to continue. She has been listed as being born (also her parents) as being born in Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Since I am not certain what her first name was or where she was born I am stuck. Her son Edward Phillips was killed while working on a railroad car, there was a right up in the paper about it in 1922(I have a copy)and I sent for his death certificate and verified his parents as Elijah Phillips and Anna Douling, both being born in Pennsylvania. At the time of the accident Edward was living on Bouquet Ave, Washington, Washington County, Pa. If anyone has any information I would really like to hear from them.

My great grandparents on my maternal side was Elijah Phillips and Eliza "Annie" Phillips nee: Douling.
My grandmother was Anna May Bibey nee: Phillips. I received a copy of my grandmothers death certificate and it verified my great grandfather as Elijah Phillips and Eliza Douling.
Now on the census 1900 she is listed as a widow and "Annie" Phillips and then her children was listed, one being my grandmother. My grandparents are both buried in Chartiers and I checked the list on their web site but no Eliza. But she could be buried somewhere else. We are not certain when she died, we think sometime between 1910 and 1920.
If anyone has any information about Eliza "Annie" Phillips/Douling I would really appreciate it.

My sisters and I were recently in Carnegie and visited the Historical Society, the people there were very helpful. We went to chartiers cemetary and saw a lot of our family grave sites. We also went to the different locations we used to visit when we were children, it was very nice to go back down memory lane. There are still a lot of information that we haven't been able to find as yet, one is the name of our cousin "Marjorie" Lois Bibey's daughter. She married probably in the early to middle forties, we don't know for certain if she had her daughter by her first husband or not, but they did divorce and she remarried a Nagy. If anyone remembers Lois or attended her wedding, or anything about her I would really like to hear from them. We are hoping that the daughter has our Family Bible that was my grandparents (maternal side)and maybe pictures. We have none of our grandparents Alfred and Anna May Bibey - nee:Phillips. If anyone can help with any information, we would appreciate it very much.

What are their surnames? Kelly, Moran, Campbell
Comments:
The Campbell's lived in Carnegie---not sure when. I know they were there perhaps in the 1940's and 1950's. Mary (Moran) and William Campbell were married in 1922 and their children were Rosemary, Sister Catherine Sienna, William, Joseph, and James. These children would be in their 70's today and hopefully they still live in the Pittsburgh area. I would love to contact them!! My mother's cousin knew Rosemary quite well many, many years ago. Mary Campbell died in 1962. She lived in Mount Lebanon at the time of her death. Mary's parents were James and Susan (Kelly) Moran.

I am looking for any information on Thomas Bird who was married to an Anna Kelly. They had 2 daughters Ruth Anna Bird born 11/14/1891 and Mary Frances Bird born 1/5/1886. I think they lived in Bridgeville since both girls were baptized at the Holy Cross Church on Sarah ST. An Edward Bird and a Mary Bird were sponsors at the baptisms and are probably brothers or sisters of Thomas. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I thought I'd try this again in hopes of getting some response. My great-great grandfather was William Scully. He lived in Walker's Mill and was born in 1868. His parents were John and Mary Scully. (However, the 1870 and 1880 censuses list his mother as being Ann. I'm not sure about the error here (if any)). Both parents were born in Ireland. William also had a brother named John. William was married to Barbara Conley also from Walker's Mill. If anyone has any possible connection to this family, please do not hesitate to contact me. I have more information.

I am researching the Cubbage family of George and his son John. George bought land on the west side of Chartiers Creek in 1804. He married Nancy Caldwell and they had five children.

John was married to Eliza Ewing, Mary Huchinson and Ann Jane Jamison Holland, my great great
grandmother. John's son George was in the Civil War and killed at St. Petersburg, Va. He is buried in Poplar Grove Cemetery near St. Petersburg, Va. Would love to find old George's burial site. His wife Nancy is buried in Venice. Hello class of 64

The murder has gone unsolved for over 50 years. I am having difficulty searching archives of newspapers or even death certificate since i only have the year and not the month or day. Would appreciate hearing from anyone who knew of this house or knew any family members. please email me with any information no matter how insignificant. Thanks!

My Mother was an orphan in the New York Foundling Hospital, she was born March 14, 1900 to Minnie McCann. I recieved the obituary fron your society about a year ago and just put it on the side, until I checked at the Ellis Island site and found Michael and Jane withe the children, Kate,Minnie, Nellie, Agnes, John, Edith,and Michl. Most of these names show up on a list on your site. The age of Minnie is close to the age of Minnie the records of the foundling hospital have for her. This is one of the better leads I've had over the many years.
Thank you, Andrew J Rosik

Who are you looking for? Any Yourd Family
Where did they live in the Carnegie area? Owned several parcels in Carnegie
What are their surnames? Yourd aka Euwer
Comments:
In Warner's History of Allegheny County, Samuel Yourd (probably born about 1768) came from Ireland and purchased property in Penn Township, Allegheny County., in 1801. His father, Archibald, was believed not to have come to America. Warner's record gives no indication of Samuel's wife's name or whether he had brothers, but that he had a son, Archibald (1798-1860) who married Mary Woods and became the parents of John Yourd (and several other Yourd Children.)

Came from Ireland about 1802 and settled near Mansfield, (now Carnegie) before locating in Penn (Hills) Twp.

The History of Allegheny County, PA, volume 1, 1889, Warner and Company, Chicago, page 71 states that S. Yourd was an elder in the Mansfield Presbyterian Church in 1857. On page 33 merchants in Chartiers Borough in 1867 include Samuel Yourd and _______Caldwell. John Yourd noted that he moved to Carnegie, PA after the Civil War. He is buried at Chartiers Cemetery at Carnegie. His inheritance of his father's land after his mother died in 1867 included 30 acres and 93 perches, nearly half of the farm which Archibald's father, Samuel Uerr, bought which is marked in a survey made by C. Snively on October 18, 1859. The property is bounded by lands of Thomas May's heirs, John Aber and other lands patented by Archibald Yourd's father, Samuel Uerr, also known as Samuel Yourd. Special conditions to his father's will included the option to rent the land for $25 a year payable to his mother, Mary Woods Yourd, as long as she lives. If he declined this option, his mother could rent it to someone else.

My Great Grandmother was Susan Margaret Yourd, a daughter of Samuel Yourd. She married William Fisher at the (First) Presbyterian Church (of Carnegie) in Mansield
(now Carnegie) by Rev. Robert McPherson.

I would love to share family history with other Yourd/Euwer Relatives

John A. Lewis was last living at that location during the 80's, maybe during 1990 or later. I'm told he moved to one of the outlying areas. I also lived at the Terrance during the war and moved sometime in the late 40's, early 50's.

I am writing in response of what is happening at Chartiers Cemetery. I have just rencently lost my 3 year old grandson John to leukemia. My eighteen year old nephew and my in-laws are all buried at Chartiers Cemetery. Just recently management has selectively enforced rules that you can't decorate graves. They are throwing angels, flags flowers, bronze flag holders and the list goes on into the dumpster. My husband tried to speak with the manager and she was very rude to him. And all she would say is this stuff has to come off. Let me tell you about the stuff. They were two small garden flags. One on my grandson's grave and the other on my nephew's. They each had an angel and my daughter-in-law had placed a small yellow bus that my grandson loved to play with. We also had three solor lights. My grandson son was afraid of the dark. Ruth, the manager told my husband to get that stuff off. He tried to explain to her that this was all we could do for him. She was cold and uncaring. My husband was horrified at her cold responses.We cut the grass every week because the cemetery is not cared for at all. My daughter-in-law and I worked for four days this summer putting a stone border around all three of our graves. Cemetery employees were aware of what we were doing yet no one said this was not allowed. I recently met Karen Kerr and Edna Keller. Karen's two month old daughter and Edna's mother are buried at Chartiers Cemetery. They have also attempted to speak with the manager but received the same cold response. Karen had to retrieve the angel that was on her daughter's grave from the dumpster. I still can't believe this is happening to the families. I wish the manager could hear my daughter-in-law cry herself to sleep each night and see the empty look in my son's eyes. This was their only son and our only grandchild. He was our angel and the depth of our sorrow is unending. They want to enforce rules that no one was even aware of. I have tended to my in-laws graves for 23 years and nothing was ever said before. The cemetery was always well taken care of until Corner Stone Family Service, Inc. took ownership. Sincerely Rose Alisesky

What are their surnames? WERLE
Comments:
My great grandfather, Philip WERLE, apparently came from Germany to live in the Pittsburgh-Carnegie area in the latter half of the 19th century. He married Elizabeth SCHADE of Collier Twp. in 1890 and died on 12 July 1924.

I know little about Philip except that he was a member of Rich Valley Lodge #616 of the International Order of Odd Fellows. The IOOF Web site doesn't show this lodge, so I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about its history, where it is/was located, whether it's now inactive, and if there is an archive somewhere with member information.

Thanks for your help,

BILL

Who are you looking for? Henry F. Struth
Where did they live in the Carnegie area? Heidelberg
What are their surnames? Struth, Carrick, Humble
Comments:
I am researching my family tree. My grandfather was Henry F. Struth of Heidelberg, Pa. His date of birth was 4/9/1895. He died in January of 1972. I am not sure where he was buried, but it was somewhere in the area. His wife, my grandmother, was Laucretia Struth (maiden Carrick). She was born 5/6/1903 and died in March of 1975. She is also buried in the area. They attended St. Joseph's Catholic church in Carnegie/Glendale. That church was closed down I believe. My grandmothers sister was Edna Humble (Carrick). She was born 10/30/1910 and died 8/12/1998. Her husband was Andrew Humble who was born 2/12/1902 and died 9/1979. Again, all from the same area. My Uncle Raymond Struth used to own an auto repair shop in Heidelberg on I believe Railroad Street. He was born 11/19/1923 and died 10/11/1988. His wife June Struth still lives in the house in front of the garage. My mother is still alive. Her name is Hannah Curran (Struth). She will help me in getting some information, but not all of it. So anything you can add will be most helpful.
thanks,

We do not know exactly where the family lived. In the 1880 census they were in Lincoln Township. A family of Charles and Phebe (Phoebe) 9 children, George, William, Charles, Harriet, Mary, James, Robert DAVID (our grandfather) and Alexander. Charles Sr. was born about 1839 in Scotland.

If you run across anything of interest I could certainly use the help.

Thank you.

Keep up the good work!

My great grandmother's obituary says she was the widow of John Parker Miller of Walker's Mill.
I know they were born in OH, but lived in PA from about 1895, then she died in 1936, in OH. Her name was Ella M. (Liggett) Miller.
I don't know where John died or when. Can anyone help me, please?

I am making stabs in the dark for my maternal grandparents' family. Don't know that they lived in Carnegie for sure, but I'm trying every resource I can online before I spend $$$ to have other research done. Harvey Beamer married Lilly Mae Stiffy (don't know when) and had 5 children: Walter, Frank, Ralph, Mary, and Helen.Frank was my gf, b. 1906. Mary and Helen married two brothers (McKnight) and both sisters died within 2 days of each other during the 1919 flu epidemic. Mother Lilly Mae Stiffy Ewing died in childbirth, when..??? I don't know where they're buried, but they're somewhere around the Pittsburgh area. If I could access obits or cemetery records,I might be able to to get somewhere...any suggestions?

Great Information! Although I didn't find what I was looking for it felt great to see more information about this area. A kind person sent me a list from the 1920 census that included William Edward Kinney (my Grandfather)b. 1869(?), wife Sophia(b.1879? d. 1952-3?) and children, Leo(b.1899), William, George, Charles(my father b. 1913, Rose and Violet. I lost the email it listed their ages. I don't know when they moved to PA, and don't know if William had brothers/sisters or if parents followed along. Most moved to Michigan. Am looking for death notices of William or Sophia. Can anyone help maybe? Sophia was buried in Chartiers cemetery(known by receipt/document), no headstone I believe? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can offer to anyone, help in Central New Jersey area.

Just want to share my EXTREME joy about the success I had with Terry's Memorial Day Project.

I just got a phone call from a guy who was standing in the Chartiers Cemetery in front of our ancestor's grave reading my message. And he had his mother with him. She is 84 years old and the grandaughter of August, one of the owners of the Abbott Packing Company.

Now get this!!!!! This guy lives - guess where?

Oakmont just about 3 blocks from me!!!!!!!!!!!

When he and his mother return to Oakmont later this afternoon they are going to stop by to visit with me.

Thanks, Terry, for the great idea and for carrying it out for all of us!!

My father-in-law William (Bill) FOSS, b. 1881-2 & his sister Myrtle, b. 1885, in the East Pittsburgh area & were raised by a Germany nanny after their parents Henry-Harry & Hannah (Hansen) FOSS died between 1886-1900 from an (epidemic?) in the Pittsburgh, area. His parents supposedly left an estate & he had a private tutor named HOFFMAN. Bill was in United States Intelligence Service in WWI & went behind the lines. He had a thick Pennsylvania Dutch accent up till the time he died, at age 98, & a fluency in German. We have made 2 trips to Allegheny & Westmoreland Counties doing research on this family & the only info we found was Bill & Myrtle living with the nanny in the 1900 Federal Census at 3rd Ave., New Kensington Borough, Westmoreland Co., PA under the surname FOOSE.

Who are you looking for? 'Lois" who is probably a cousin.
Where did they live in the Carnegie area? Beechwood Ave. Carnegie for sure.. Maybe Walkers Mills before that
What are their surnames? Not Sure, best guess Conley or Connolly or Feeney
Comments:
I think this lady would have been born about 1922-4, she lived with my grandmother, Nell McGarvey and my mother, Margaret McGarvey, for several years in the mid 1930's I think she was an orphan and probably related but there are no living relatives that remember her. My mother, who died in 1991, always wondered why she never wrote to her because they were on good terms and Mother talked about the good times she had with her including a trip to Oklahoma in about 1935. She was like a kid sister to Mom. I think she just moved out when she was in her teens. No idea if she married or what her name might be for sure except "Lois"

Zofia and Teresa were cousins. Teresa was living at 212 Okiellia Street, Carnegie in 1906. (The spelling of the street name might be wrong.) Zofia came to Teresa's home when she emigrated from Galicia.

Zofia was married Feb 27 1909 to Jozef Mirota by Reverend Frank F. Poszukanis at St Mary's Church in Carnegia, PA. At the time of their marriage, Zofia was living in Idlewood near Carnegie and Jozef was living in Cherry Valley, Washington County. I have found their civil marriage record but have not been able to locate the church records.

Where did they live in the Carnegie area? Not known at this time
What are their surnames? Richardson and Holmes
Comments:
My ancestors were James Richardson (1721-1805) and Mary ? (1724-1806). I do not know yet where they resided, but they are buried at St. Luke's, Woodville. I'm also trying to find the maiden name of Mary.

The other ancestors are Obadiah Holmes and Jane Richardson (daughter of James above). I also do not yet know where they resided, but they are buried at St. Luke's as well, although their resting places have not been located.

Obadiah and Jane had ten daughters and two sons. I have found only Mary (my ancestor), Rachel, and Shepley Ross. So -- I am also looking for the other children. Are there any extant church records for baptisms from the 1780s through the early 1900s. I assume these people were Episcopalian since they are buried at St. Luke's.

This is a great web site -- thank you so much for taking time to make the information available. I live in California so cannot physically research in Allegheny County.

What are their surnames? FRANKS, HILTON, LAUTERBACH, SCHADE, WERLE
Comments:
This morning, out of the blue, I got a great early Christmas present: T. Cook sent me an e-mail saying the Historical Society of Carnegie has a new Web site. As a newcomer to genealogy, I was very pleased to get this news.

My father, William J. HILTON Sr., was born in Carnegie, and his parents (Edward R HILTON Sr. and Sophia Elizabeth WERLE) were born in the area. I've been running into dead-ends about my great grandfather, George Richard HILTON Jr., but when I did a search on your site I was ecstatic to learn that his death notice is available through the Society. I'm ordering it today, and I'm certain it will include information that will help unravel some of the mysteries I've been trying to solve for the last several years.

I also did a search on "Schade" and was equally rewarded to find that the death notice was available for Jacob SCHADE Sr., who was my grandmother Sophia's grandfather. I have a wonderful full-sized pastel portrait of Jacob and a little information on him, but again the death notice will undoubtedly prove helpful.

Other Carnegie-area folks who are direct forebears but for whom I have little or no information are:

Elizabeth LAUTERBACH (wife of Jacob Shade; no dates known)

Emily FRANKS (wife of Gearge Richard Hilton Jr.; b. 12 Jan 1873, death date unknown)

Thanks a million for performing this valuable service. I'll be sending in my Society membership along with the request for death notices.

With best wishes,

Bill Hilton Jr.
