I knew this was bound to happen and I have to correct some errors. The first concerns the three Catherine Kremers or Kraemer. Philip Wolford was married to Catherine Kraemer and they lived in West Manheim Twp., York Co PA. Some of their children went to Centre Co. PA. Her name is correct. I mentioned that their son John was married to a Catherine Kremer. That is not correct. He was married to Catherine FUHRMAN of York Co PA. Her dates are however correct. Their son John was married to…Continue

The following is from the will of Philip Wohlford, son of the previous Philip who moved over the mountain to Sugar Valley in Clinton Co PA where he lived outside Loganton. He and his wife are buried in the cemetery behind what had been the Lutheran Church. Loganton suffered a disastrous fire in 1917 and half of the town was destroyed including the original Lutheran Church. A bank occupies that spot today.

This is the John Wolford who I posted about before Philip. Spelling should have been Wohlford or Wohlfart.
Any of you who followed the Jerry Sandusky trial last week, caught glimpses of the beautiful courthouse where the trial was held in Bellefont PA. That is the same courthouse where brothers John and Philip filed their wills. I believe the older wills are now in the hands of the historical society.
John's children began the migration of Wohlfords. Kleckners and Snooks from…Continue

After chatting with you for years at different chat room, I miss you greatly. Night Jim.
Jim was a fount of knowledge, I learnt so much about the American Civil War from him, and he will be missed.
For his family, this was written a while back but I feel it applies to Jim.
Jim, you gave so many people the courage to think and talk about the Spirit world, and to expand our awareness. Bob & I will miss meeting you in Oct. You have lived a full and interesting life. Rest well my friend knowing you will never be forgotten.
Dear Jim, now you will be one of those we are hunting down. Rest peacefully with Spirit.
Your generous and friendly spirit will be greatly missed.
Very sad to hear of Jim's passing. Such a very friendly, nice person. Now you'll be able to meet all your ancestors.
So long, Jim. It was wonderful doing research with you. We will all miss you.
You will be greatly missed. Rest in peace, my friend. :(
RIP Jim. Now you are reunited with Mollie, Stormy, and have all the answers you have been seeking! You'll be missed by all!! :(
So far I haven't made any Byrne connections to New York, but your James Byrne is offered as an Ancestry.com hint for me all the time. My James Byrne (my great-uncle) was born in Newtownbarry/Bunclody, Wexford, Ireland ~1876. My research indicates that he emigrated to America in 1893, and I know he lived in Denver (with his sister/my grandmother Sarah Byrne Murphy) ~1898-1900. Another relative has family letters from Ireland that refer to Jimmy dying in a horse accident ~1901.
