Comments: I am a descendant of John H. Guild (and Rev. George S. Guild), both of whom are buried at Independence Cemetery. If you are interested, I think I have a number of headstone photos for the "Guilds" that I could send you.

Also, Josephus McGimsey is an ancestor of mine. I've seen the spelling two ways, McJimsey also. Do you know for sure it is McGimsey with a "G"??

I think your site is very interesting and easy to navigate in! Thanks!

Comments: I am searching for my GGGrandfathers parents. David Pitzer was born in 1810 in Virginia. I have had a hard time finding just what line of Pitzers he is from. The earliest I have found him with my GGrandfather Philander Pittser, is 1860 In Waltz Township Indiana. His last residence was Erie Kansas. He married Nancy Snyder 25 Oct. 1838 in Clark County Ohio.

Just not sure where to look next. If there is anything you could help me with that would be awesome.

God's Blessings,

Pamela Pittser, Hudson, Troxel

That family (minus two oldest married daughters) moved to OR in late 1800's. Their youngest daughter, Minnie(my grandmother), married Charles A.Whitsett in Prineville, OR; they came with two children to Orland, CA in 1910. Two additional Whitsett children were born in 1912 and 1913. Sarah Bisher and husband Robert Mills Wright also came but later. At some point Hannah Bisher Lowry and some of her children followed her sister and family to Orland. Sarah and Robert are buried in Orland, CA as are Hannah and two Lowry sons.
