Elliott was my great great grandfather.

I really don't know that much about Annie Bond or her family.I only know what my grandma told me about her mother, Ethel Alice.I was very lucky to be given genealogy records from the Lancaster County Library on Annie Bond and her ancestors.I was also very lucky to find her tombstone.I know that because of the flowers on the graves of my other relatives in the Lancaster Cemetary that there is someone else out there that I'm related to.I hope you find these records and email me.

- Mr. & Mrs. August Pelzm.June 11, 1908 (37 KB)
August Pelz and Ethel Alice Robison were married on June 11, 1908.I never knew Ethel but I did get to know and love my great grandpa Pelz. He died when I was 11 years old. When I knew him he was very old.He would sit where ever grandma put him and watch his great grandchildren play.He knew who we all were and laughed at our antics.Sometimes he played peek a boo with us. The thing I remember the most was his cookie jar. My grandma worked at a bakery and always made sure he had cookies in his cookie jar for us when we went to visit him.When I got older my grandma (Clara) gave me her father's cookie jar. (It is a ceramic pig)It still sits on the counter in my kitchen. I know my great grandpa wasn't perfect, but he was the only great grandpa I knew and I thank God for my memories.

Alfred Knoll and Daralene Sharon Foltz were married on June 30, 1956 at Concordia Lutheran Church in Ft. Wayne, Allen Co., Indiana.My mom was Lutheran.I believe my father was raised Catholic.My father died of cancer at the young age of 58.My father was a Staff Sargeant in the Marines.While in Korea he recieved a Purple Heart.During an x-ray he was injected with a dye that contained a pollutant that eventually settled in his organs and turned into a black cancer.I am happy and thankful that God let me have him for as long as he did.I pray for the families of our service men who are still suffering from the effects of the same dye and cancer.

This is my grandpa when he was around 28 years old.Until I saw this picture I never realized that we looked so much alike.When I was 28 my father died of cancer, my grandpa and I became even closer.I still have memories of my grandfather defending me and loving me no matter what.When no one paid attention to me he was always there.I always called him "Mmmyyy Grampee, no one elses"(even when I was 30 years old).I know that he is patiently watching over me from heaven and will guide me when I'm ready.

I never knew my great grandfather Samuel but I must of knew my great grandmother Lillian because she didn't die until I was 7.My mother told me that she didn't like children.When she would visit her grandmother, as a child, her grandmother would give each of them a dime if they would sit perfectly still in a chair and not move or talk until it was time to go.
