HI Sharon, I just sent you a message about Boxrud's. Then I looked here and saw your Frederick, Maryland connection. My great

grandmother was a Boteler from the Brownsville area. We may well be related.

Hi Sharon, we corresponded briefly by email back in 2000. I'm just getting started on this site. Hopefully I can add some useful info to the Barnes lines that connect to my ancestry.

Hi Sharon! Thanks for the merges today - don't forget to do post-merge cleanup!

Cheers, Liz

P.S. The Matching and Merging FAQ has an overview of responsibilities in doing merges. The Help page on Biographies has a lot of great information on what to include and what to omit in a Biography.

I also find this page really helpful:

Hi Sharon, I saw your note about a merge. It seems that Gilbert has been both elusive and popular. Regarding Kennedy-1004 and Kennedy-739 - would you be able to take a look at the profile that I had for Gilbert (Kennedy-14090). I believe the Find A Grave memorial marker gives more definitive information about parentage, but I also have some links on what I think should be his correct parents. Thanks in advance.

Sharon: Have you considered the name Casteel to be a possible variant of the Dutch name "Kasteel", meaning Castle. Although it is not listed as a name variant for Casteel on its WikiTree page, the Dutch list nearly 8000 people with the term Kasteel in their name, back to < 1600. The German designation for a castle is "Schloss".

Practiced by adding Eleanor Carty's husband, Titze-52 since my sister has a drawing of him. Interesting what google comes up with!

Please continue your work for now. My time is a bit fragmented at present and it would help me to understand this site better to see what you do. Again, thank you for your efforts to build the tree!

If I read your tree correctly, we have a common ancestor, John Thomas Schley who built the first house in Frederick, MD. However, Gedmatch does not find common DNA for us.

Also saw you created C.C.Carty, my grandmother (Cora's sister) Ruth's dad. According to Williams History of Frederick, C.C.'s grandfather is WIlliam Proctor Carty, whose father is unnamed but is said to be from Philadelphia. And there the trail ends for the Cartys. Another source thinks that this line of Cartys came from Virginia, but to me the dates are suspect.

Thanks for your work!
