The Story Tellers

    We are the chosen. In each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. --Author unknown.

ACQUISITIONS

The Henry County Genealogical Society has recently purchased the following additional materials which can be found in the Edwin Wood Memorial Library in Deshler: U.S. Census Bundle 1607-1880, Passenger & Immigration Lists Index ­1500s-1900s (CD), Immigrants to PA 1600-1800 (CD) and Passenger & Immigration Lists Index 2000 Supplement (CD); the book, Wood County Source Book One from Newsletters 1981-1990 and on microfilm, St. John's Lutheran Holgate 1860-1941, St. John's United Church of Christ Holgate 1860-1990, St. John's Episcopal Church Napoleon 1857-1969, Holgate United Methodist Church 1891-1916, and Immanuel Lutheran Church Hamler 1896-1971.

SEARCHING FOR RAILROADERS

    If your ancestor was a railroad worker, here are some suggestions for finding information: write to the State Historical Society Railroad Museum in the appropriate state; the United Association of Railroad Veterans, 187 Illinois St., Patterson, NY 07503; or for pension records, the Railroad Retirement Board, 844 N. Rush St., Chicago, IL 60622.
    If your ancestor had a Social Security number starting with a "7" he probably worked for the railroad between 1937 and 1943. The Railroad Pension was set up at the same time as Social Security and railroaders received their own Social Security numerical prefix.

Alvin Tussing, George Thomas, Donald Rayle and Ernest Wiedenroth won medals as sharpshooters, Alvin scoring the highest. Robert Lee was awarded a medal for having the cleanest bunk for the entire camp period of 30 days. The boys advanced in standing, Ted Long, Robert Lee and Ernest Wiedenroth are sergeants and the others were advanced to corporals. Robert Lee, Alvin Tussing and Donald Rayle were in Co. F; Ted Long was in the band; Ernest Wiedenroth was in Co. E. and George Thomas and Waldo Long were in Co. M. The boys liked it so well that all say they will go back next year.

THIS IS A CEMETERY

    Lives are commemorated--deaths are recorded--families are reunited--memories are made tangible--and love is undisguised. This is a cemetery.
    Communities accord respect, families bestow reverence, historians seek information and our heritage is thereby enriched.
Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are carved in stone to pay warm tribute to a loved one. The cemetery is homeland for family memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living.
    A Cemetery is a history of people--a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today. A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering--always. Author Unknown
