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.

Accentuate the Positive 2014 Geneameme

Jill Ball at  GeniAus  posted : Accentuate the Positive 2014 Geneameme Here are my answers: 1.  An elusive ancestor I found -- Unfortunately, I have not been able to find the parents of Rev. Alvah Russel Rutan but I am hoping that 2015 will bring some great clues on where to look so I can find out who they are. 2.  A precious family photo I found was of my Great grandparents.  I love this photo of them!  On the back are their names in her handwriting!!  There is no date either.  I think this was taken at their house in Shickshinny, Pennsylvania. 3.  An ancestor's grave I found was -- No cemetery exploring for me in 2014 but I will be back out there as soon as it gets nice out again!  Unless you count the ones I have been able to find on Findagrave.  I have been lucky enough, recently, to have come across a lot of my Houseknecht's headstones on Findagrave along with some new family members that I have been able to add to my tree.  (

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 to   history.division@usmc.mil   or a request in writting to: United States Marine Corps History Division Attn: Reference Branch 3078 Upshur Avenue Quantico, Virginia 22134 .    I immediately sent an email {about 12:30 am because

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
