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.

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.

Marine Casualty Card Database

While I was writing Top 10 Blog Posts for 2019 I discovered that my top post was US Marine Casualty Cards from 2014.  Wow!  {There is also an update to the original post here  where I show some more information that was sent to me.}  I went back to read the post and discovered that the links no longer work.  I did a little digging and found a link to the Casualty Card Database at the Marine Corps University website.  At this site you click on the war you want to search and download a searchable spreadsheet.  Once you locate your Marine you send an email to request the card.  There are also links to download information about what the codes mean on the cards. I also found that you can search the U.S. Marine Corps Casualty Index, 1940-1958 , at Ancestry.com.  It gives the casualty date, type, unit, and service number.  There is a link to go to another website from the Ancestry database but that link does not work. {I believe it is the same as the link from my original post

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!!
