  1. This was great! Thank you. I have started doing the genealogy on my husband’s family. Mary Gertrude Greenwalt Migan was my husband’s great Aunt. He is descended from John J. Greenwalt, her brother. I was wondering, did you go to Holy Family Church to get the information or did you go through the Archives at St. Mary’s Seminary and University. I am trying to find out what is the correct way that Greenwalt was spelled. I know that Holy Family Church didn’t come to be until the 1880’s and that Mary Gertrude Greenwalt was married there. If so, on the marriage record they should have her parents names and sometimes they put the spelling that was the original spelling.

  2. Melanie – That would make your husband and I second cousins.

    I believe Pam (the original researcher for that information) spoke with the secretary at Holy Family.

    Have you seen the family tree that I have partially done for the Greenwalt family? Unfortunately, I don’t have much information on John’s family.

  3. John– Your family tree is great! I was able to find some information about my husband’s family that my husband didn’t know about. Thank you! My husband’s name is Stephen. We went down and visited the graves at Holy Family Cemetery. We live in Carroll County. I have found over 12 Greenwalt’s buried there.
    I am doing more research on the John Greenwalt Family. When I find out more, I will let you know. John Greenwalt, Mary Gertrude Greenwalt’s brother might be buried at Mt. Olive or Mt. Olivet Cemetery. Steve and I are going to check it out.
    There is an interesting website, http://www.findagrave.com. My brother Charles told me about the site. People are putting graves sites on this site for genealogy research. It is free. I was able to find some more Greenwalts buried at Holy Family Cemetery on that site that were not listed on the Holy Family Cemetery site.
    Thank you again!
