William Andrew Siegfried


William Andrew Siegfreid is my 2nd great grandfather.  He is the son of William Henry and Eve Greenzwig Siegfried.

William was born 21 October 1857 in Millport, Lower Towamensing Township, Carbon county, Pennsylvania and he died on 16 February 1927 in Sugarloaf Township, Luzerne county, Pennsylvania.

William married Emma Lydia Shellhammer in 1880.  They had the following children:

  1. Otto Siegfried
  2. William Edger Siegfried
  3. Arthur Siegfried -- I'm not sure if this is really another child or if he is Archibald...more things for my to do list!
  4. Archibald (Archie) Siegfried
  5. Cassia Siegfried
  6. Charles Crawford Siegfried
  7. Darwin Wesley Seigfreid (my great grandfather)
  8. Gertrude Siegfried
  9. Harry Siegfried
  10. Harty Titus Siegfried
  11. Hattie Siegfried
  12. Dorothy Siegfried
County Historical Maps of Pennsylvania (Harrisburg, Pa.: Archives Publishing Company of Pennsylvania, Incorporated, (donated) 1950). Digital version at FamilySearch Books Online - free.

I found William living in Luzerne county on the 1880 census in Black Creek, the 1900 census in Sugar Loaf, the 1910 census in Sugar Loaf and the 1920 census in Sugar Loaf.  I do now know when or why he moved 

I also know that William is buried in Red Rock Cemetery, Red Rock, Luzerne county, Pennsylvania.

I want to know more about this family!  I will continue searching for more clues.

Stitching Update…Lots of pics

LHN Family Sampler (excuse my crooked house…not sure why it looks like that)American Flag Quilt Sampler by Rosewood Manor.  I love stitching on this; I did however run out of the Brethren Blue.  I decided to put this down for a little while and have picked up the family sampler again.A close up!HAED Natures Mourning.  I have not worked on this in a while.  I plan to stitch on LHN Family Sampler until Friday and then work on this next.Last but not least is a little freebie that I did before Christmas.

Using Evernote for my planner

In my last post, I mentioned how I am using Evernote as my planner; a few of you have had some questions so here I am.

I started using Evernote the week of December 23rd.  I was looking for a new planner for 2017 and I was not liking anything that I was finding.  I keep lists of all sorts of things in Evernote so it only made sense to try and find a way to use Evernote for my planner.  I did a little bit of research and found these templates for 2017.  With a little adjusting, I was able to make the weekly template work for me.

I first created a folder called Day Planner {I put the folder in my Inbox stack because I spend the most time here}.

!Inbox -- default notebook.  Anything coming into Evernote goes here to be sorted and dealt with {It is piling up today}. Ideally, this is emptied every day but for me, it is more like a few times a week.

!TO DO -- This is the notebook that holds some of those lists.  My genealogy to do list, my blog to do list and my brainstorming list live here…

Family Sampler Update

I was hoping to get more done on this this past week but another trip to the ER on Wednesday night did not leave much time for stitching.  I was very dehydrated and my potassium was low and I found out that I have a UTI.  I was really surprised about the UTI because I did not have the normal symptoms.  The antibiotic has really been helping.  I was not feeling well and just laying on the couch but then I got dizzy and fell so Jason had to come home from work and take me to the ER.  Yesterday was the first that I really spent any time stitching but I did get a lot done. 
I switched to my HAED Nature’s Mourning for this week.  So far today I have gotten a lot done.  Hopefully this week I will stay healthy and want to cross stitch.
Enjoy your week!
Happy Stitching!!
