In October I started typing in my Aunt Freda Hill and Aunt Margie Simon's family tree information, that I inherited, into the Family Tree Builder (A book case and two filing cabinet draws of paper – they did not use a computer). I will be typing for a couple years. I plan to update and enter my family information into my tree as I go.
I have particular interest in finding proof for two ancestors:
(1) Johan Peter Johan-Peter Reitz
Born: Jan 8 1788, Died: Jun 21 1867. Believed to have died in Coolspring, Jefferson, Pennsylvania, USA and buried at Lutheran Church cemetery near Richfield, Juniata County, Pennsylvania, USA. The maiden name of his first spouse is not known. He and his second wife appear in the 1850 PA census. I am a decendant of his second daughter Elizabeth Kreilich from his first wife. The daughters moved to Sundusky, Ohio.
(2) Mary Archer (Lee) Born: Estimated: 1802 Probably Brooke Co., West Virginia. Estimate based on 1850 census data and Died May 1 1851 in Brooke County, West Virginia, USA. She marred my 3-great grandfather Samuel Archer II. I do not have proof of who her parents were. Family trees on Ancestry.com suggest parents William Lee (born 1767 at Donegal, Ireland, Died Aug 27 1819 Cove township, Barbour, WV) and Jane Lee (Elliott) (Born 1768 near Donegal, Ireland and died May 15 1843).
