Gilbert Update.  On August 6, 2006 I put some of these same people on the site.  I recently did more research and have added some observations to Jonathan Sr. (1617-1682), Richard (1550-1626), Thomas (1592-1659).  Right now it seems that most of the line from Truman Hiram Gilbert to up to Thomas Gilbert (married to Elizabeth Bennett) looks reasonable.  I'm uncertain about Richard (married to Marjorie Morken/Morgen).  More research!

Updates from Will of Peter Michael Berst:
Death date: Peter Albert Berst
Full name and namesake: Peter Michael Berst

In the codicil to the will of Peter Michael Berst, dated October 22, 1936, Peter Michael revokes the bequest made in his will of September 2, 1926. In doing same for son-in-law, John Summers, the following is included "having predeceased me." There is not a statement like this for Patrick Mangan. Did he and Gertrude divorce? Or was he simply gone? Or out of favor?

Burial information for Martin Alexander Berst (1867-1872), son of Martin and Marianne Haberkorn Berst

Cemetery plot record for Peter, Martin, Michael M. and Charles A. lists two un-identified Martin's - dates of death:  October 8, 1864 and June 5 1865.  I have no Martin's with those death dates in my list.  Am wondering if they might be infants of Martin and Marianne Haberkorn Berst?

Also - note:  Martin and Marianne Haberkorn Berst are not buried in this plot Martin purchased with his sons.

A 'thank you' that will be lost at the bottom of this page!

"The Bersch Gang" - Mary Somogyi for graciously sharing her 30 years of research; Brendon Hansen and Wendy O'Brien for searching out documents, photos, and other wondrous finds in the Buffalo area (Brenden and Wendy are sisters who grew up in the same area of Buffalo where George Martin and Eva Marie settled); David Berst, Lisa Murdock, Rhonda Hastings, Richard Engstrom, and Serge Berst. All connected through the Bersch family from Riedseltz! They have joined with Lyndel and me (Becky) to fill in every possible blank in our family history.

So many updates this time! And time to make a change to how I'm setting up a couple of pages. First, I am going to stop using the "Surname" page and use just the "Name" page. Second, I'm going to show updates by also placing a link to the new names on this page.  (They will also be added to the main "Name" page.)

May 21, 2006 update and an update to George Martin Bersch families: wife, Jacobee HIMMELSPACH; wife, Marie Eve STREICHER; wife, Eva Marianna (Mary E.) STARK .

For the last couple of months I have been working exclusively on the Bersch/Berst/Best family and a LOT of associated lines. Several descendents of George Martin Bersch have grouped together to share our research. THANKS to: Mary who is sharing 30 years of research. Brendon and Wendy are sisters who grew up in Buffalo. Wendy still lives there and the two of them have been researching local churches, cemeteries, libraries, etc. and are sending so many wonderful items. Rhonda joined us and brought along Arlene and, direct from France, Serge. David and Lisa are also reaching into their files and memories to help out. Lyndel, who is responsible for getting me my start on the Bersch/Berst/Best line is sending out more material. Richard, who is not certain he is of our line is monitoring our progress. As you can well imagine we have tons of new documents to keep us entertained!

I'm afraid this site is getting clumsy but I would rather spend my time updating with new family than streamline it.  So, please bear with it for a while longer.  I'll try to add some new tools here and there.

In the meantime - here's today's updates:

More on the John and Ebenezer line and more detail on the descendants of Henry John Markwardt, Sr.  Henry John was the step-father of Mary Powers (wife of Levi Barber).  He was the grandfather of Grant Henry Marquette.  Grant Henry married Mabel Beyer who was the daughter of Ida Barber (daughter of Levi and Mary) who married Robert Beyer.
