Louisa Nagle Kinley and / or Pealer


I have a death certificate for a Louisa Pealer with a date of birth as 4 Oct 1830.  My Louisa Kinley has a birth date of 4 Oct 1830 {she is buried with her husband George Kinley} which I found on findagrave.com and confirmed by going to the Creveling cemetery in Almedia, Columbia county, Pennsylvania and taking a photo of the headstone.  The death date of 5 Nov 1908 matches as well.

Pennsylvania Death Certificate for Louisa Pealer
On the death certificate it lists the informant as Fanny R Sutliff and from census records(see below) I know that George and Louisa had a daughter named Fanny. Louisa's parents are listed as Jocob and Rebecca Moyer Nagle.

Also, the death certificate lists the date of burial as being 9 Nov 1908 at Almedia.  Bingo!  The cemetery that my Louisa and George are buried in is in Almedia!

Another clue...the death certificate states that she died in Fishing Creek, Columbia county, Pennsylvania.

(The funny thing about the death certificate is the note I wrote to myself...the person writing this is either confused or drunk.  LOL).

I do believe this is my Louisa.  I will look for a marriage notice and or record for her second marriage to another person with the surname of Pealer.

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…

US Marine Casualty Cards

Earlier this week I got my copy of Family Tree Magazine and I was reading an article that led me to World War II History Network and from there I found a link to an article about the United States Marine Corp making their casualty cards searchable.  You can find the database at Casualty Cards Database.
Fred Thomas, my husbands great uncle, was in WWII and in the Marines.  I searched the database and found :

On the first page it states : While the cards for World War II through Korea are not classified, however, they can often be very graphic.Therefore, to maintain the dignity and honor of the Marines, the individual cards will only be released, upon request, on a case by case basis.To request a card, please send an email tohistory.division@usmc.milor a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division

I immediately sent an email {about 12:30 am because I don't sleep} requesting more information a…
