Three of my German lines are represented on this list, two of them — Fox and Mack — members of the Schwarzenau Brethren (and possibly the Sellerses as well).
Arthur Lee Gaunt, son of Jacob Gaunt and Melvina F. Bennett, was born March 2, 1858 in Knox Township, Jay County, Indiana. He is my 3rd cousin 3x removed.
Mary Jane Allen, daughter of William Kester Allen and Thelma May Price, was born 100 years later on March 2, 1958. She is my 5th cousin once removed on my Gauntt line through the Allens (and she is the 3rd cousin 4x removed of Arthur Lee Gaunt).
Pamel Jean Knox was born March 2, 1960. She was the fourth wife of Clarence Gilbert Lore, my 1st cousin on my Sellers line.
Sophie Richman was born March 2, 2000. She is my 3rd cousin once removed on my Brainin line.
Joseph Gorgas, son of Jacob Gorgas and Christina Mack, and Sophia Atkinson were married on March 2, 1794, possibly in Ephrata, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Joseph is my 2nd cousin 6x removed via the Macks.
Emanuel Fox, son of Justus Fox, died March 2, 1833 at the age of about 69, possibly in Germantown, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. He is my 5th-great-grandfather.
Vibilia Amanda Sellers, daughter of Alexander Sellers and Lavinia Coppelberger, died March 2, 1857 at the age of 3 years 9 1/2 months. She is my 3rd cousin 3x removed.
Miriam Kramer died March 2, 1996 at the age of 85 in San Diego, San Diego County, California. She was married to Rubin Perlman, son of Louis Perlman and Jennie Novitsky, who is my 1st cousin 2x removed.
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
