Events in My Family Tree: September 27

I just love the name Dickensheets.  According to Ancestry.com, the family name is the Americanized spelling of the German Dickenscheid, fromn a municipality of the same name.


Eulalia Marie Rice was born September 27, 1904 in Grant County, Indiana.  She was the wife of Rinaldo Wise Gaunt, son of David Wise Gaunt and Margaret Williams, who is my 5th cousin once removed via the Gaunts.

Male twins, who may not have been given names, sons of Charles Cooper Stradling and Anna Gauntt, were born September 27, 1917, probably in Burlington County, New Jersey.  They are my half-uncles.

Clarence Leon Gauntt, son of Robert Elwood Gauntt and Elsie May West, was born September 27, 1928 in New Jersey, probably in Burlington County.  He is my 4th cousin once removed on my Gauntt line.

Evelyn Render, daughter of Bertram Ruthledge Render and Ruth Schumeister, was born September 27, 1952 in Omaha, Douglas County, Nebraska.  She is my 4th cousin on my Nowicki line via the Schumeisters.

Dennis Yurkovic was also born September 27, 1952, possibly in Morristown, Morris County, New Jersey.  He is the husband of Janet Beth Podolsky, daughter of Arthur Podolsky and Harriet Farbman, who is my 3rd cousin on my Gorodetsky line via the Farbmans.

Sarah Saavedra was born September 27, 2010.  She is my 3rd cousin.


Jorge Emilio Nuñez and Sandra Budwick were married September 27, 1985.  Sandra is almost definitely my cousin, but I haven't quite figured out the relationship yet.  But I'm continuing to research her family!


Henrietta L. Dickensheets, daughter of George W. Dickensheets and Albertine P. Gaunt, died September 27, 1918, possibly in Gloucester, Camden County, New Jersey, at the age of 30.  She is my 4th cousin 2x removed via the Gaunts.


  1. Good news. The Burlington County Library has lifted the appointment requirement. I'll try to get out there tmw.

    1. Hooray! I look forward to hearing what you can find. Thank you for letting me know!
