Talk about a short list! This makes April 23 look busy. I really am starting to wonder about the statistics of these types of events.
Jesse Fitzgerald was born April 24, 1777 in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. He was married to Sarah Sellers, daughter of Abraham Sellers and Sophia Bodder, who is my 3rd-great-grandaunt.
Hannah Ann Gaunt, daughter of Benjamin Selah Gaunt and Hannah Ann Peters, was born April 24, 1852 in Burlington County, New Jersey. She is my 1st cousin 3x removed.
Lucy Ann Gaunt, daughter of Reuben Lewallen Gaunt and Jane Weatherby, was born April 24, 1855 in Westhampton Township, Burlingotn County, New Jersey. She is my 2nd cousin 3x removed.
Priscilla H. Githens, daughter of Alfred T. Githens and Margaret Middleton, was born April 24, 1857 in New Jersey, probably in Gloucester County. She is my 3rd cousin 3x removed on my Gauntt line through the Githenses.
Jerome Elkins, son of David Elkins and Edith McStroul, was born April 24, 1938 in Milwaukee, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin. He is the 1st cousin of my aunt Mary McStroul.
George Mack Holsinger, son of John Holsinger and Elizabeth Mack, died April 24, 1862 at the age of 57 in Bedford County, Pennsylvania. He is my 2nd cousin 5x removed via the Macks.
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.
