in 1942 my wife and I were married, by then we also had 3 kids, tom susan, and little berto.
we were living 15 miles from the shore, and had a small but nice house to call a home for ourselfs and our 3 kids. times were good and we had received letters from oversea from out relatives, our cousins were considering moving to america due to the hard times in europe and the closing of the corn factory, and the clothing factory for his wife.
we had let them know through many letters that america was a great land, these were foreign relatives, and they should bring the whole family down, and come live in america.
I was working at a clothing material factory in town, and was making enough money to continue our lives as far as I could see, but there was a storm one day, and our home was destroyed in it
from then on I was homeless and have been, I am online today to look for my wife and children, there last names may have changed but if not they are nay,
I am looking for any information about William Jorlan Rasche. He was born in January 1901 in New Jersey, and he died in the Philippines in 1945. I believe his father's name was Albert and his mother's name as Magdelene Tommerdich, but this is unverified. I am interested in verifying who his parents are, and learning any information about them. If you can help me, I would appreciate it!
Trying to find more information about my 5th great grandfather GILBERT MILLER (b. abt 1803 - d. 20 March 1885). He was born in New Jersey to his parents, Gilbert (b. abt 1775) and Elizabeth.
He married Rebecca P Scull (b. 9 August 1807 - d. 25 Apr 1893) 7 Feb 1825 in Egg Harbor Twp, Atlantic, New Jersey.
They appear in the 1840 United States Federal Census in Egg Harbor, Atlantic, New Jersey (ref. Year: 1840; Census Place: Egg Harbor, Atlantic, New Jersey; Roll: 247; Page 15; Image: 34; Family History Library Film: 0016515).
Known child born from this marraige is a son, Parker (b. abt 1826 - d. 1901).
He passed 20 March 1885 in Monmouth, New Jersey.
As much information as anyone has would truly be appreciated!
My father was Harry B Owens Jr & my mother was Margaret L Devilbiss. I am looking for my cousins. The children of Snader Furman Devilbiss. I have found some tree matches, but I would like to connect with them.
My great great grandfather was an apprentice to a man named Ayers (sorry first name) between 1833 to 1840. My great great grandfather's name was Joseph Burchard Stites. He was born in 1825 in New Jersey, we assume Cape May. Joseph's older brother, John was the one who apprenticed him out. We don't know where from. I'm not sure if Joseph and his family moved from New Jersey to Philadelphia or he was taken from New Jersey to Philadelphia for the apprenticeship. I also know that Joseph was not supposed to be taken out of Philadelphia, but was and Joseph ended up in IL, I have two places: one was Christian County, IL and the other was Pike, IL. Does anyone have any information about anything like this in their past?
Also, while trying to find information about Joseph, I did come across some information that I found interesting: two, possibly three Stites males who were in the same generation of Joseph's father (sadly, we know nothing of him except that he died at sea in South America), early 1800's, who married two or thee different Ayers girls (I assume that they were sisters) so I'm wondering if there was a connection between the Ayers girls in New Jersey and the Ayers in PA and that's why Joseph was apprenticed to them.
I am looking for any information about my great great grandfather's family. I don't have a lot of information. I have his name: Joseph Burchard Stites and that he was born in 1825 in New Jersey, we think Cape May. His father (we don't have any information) was killed (we don't know what year) in a maritime accident and was killed "presumely as sea". We know that Joseph was apprenticed (we don't know what year or for what) by his older brother by the name of John to a man based out of Philadelphia named Ayers (we don't have a first name, but interestingly enough, there were three other male Stites' who would be in the same generation as Joseph's father married Ayers girls and I was wondering if there was a connection there as well, and so maybe that's why Joseph was sent to go with Ayers) and Joseph was told that he would not be taken out of Philadelphia, but was anyway and as a result, he lost track of his family.
If anyone has any kind of information about Joseph, John, or this Ayers person, that would be most appreachiated.
I am looking for any relatives that are related to Albert Carver, Roy Carver and Fred Carver. I know Albert has two children Jack and Shirley Carver. There mother I think was Minnie Carver. Al and Minnie Carver were my Uncle and Aunt. If you know any more about our family please email me email@example.com. Thank you. Royanne
Looking for the Pahides family..my Aunt Jacqueline is looking for her family that she has never met. She is not out to gain anything just the connection. Just to meet her family. Her half sisters name is Rula (julie) Pahides, she believes her Fathers name was Socreates Pahides. My Aunts mothers name was Mary Minerva Bowers. She knows they resided in the Pennsylvania. Philadelphia area, United States. She was approached many years ago by an unknown woman who asked her for her name, the woman had a young girl with her who looked exactly like my Aunt. When my Aunt told the unknown woman her name the woman left and my Aunt never heard from nor saw this person ever again.Even if there were a promised marriage between my Aunts Father and someone else this should not have been a reason to never allow my Aunt access to her family. We all need to know where we come from and our familys history and maybe any genetic health issues. Rula (Julie in greek) would be about 55 today. Please if anyone knows of this family contact me as soon as possible
Thank You for your time and patience
