Martins Ferry, OH 43935

At the ELLER Conference II, Estes Park, Colorado I submitted a Computerized Family History of Henry & Elizabeth BIGLER ELLER. There have been a few additions since that time; however Information is still needed on their children; especially their oldest son Joseph ELLER.

The purpose of this report is to tell you about a new computer program that I have obtained recently that uses the data of my Personal Ancestral File Program obtained from the L.D.S. Family History Dept. which has already been entered. It Is called PAF Ability, and prints in a new format. Instead of Family Group Records and Notes to follow; It Is a modified version of the "Register" or "New England System" used by the "New York Genealogical and Biographical Quarterly", and prints by Generation with different numbering system. After individuals are named along with personal data, the notes follow Immediately, making It easier to read and understand.

In comparison this version Is much smaller than the original submitted. This copy has 47 pages, including 5 pages of Index. The other one has some 215 pages of actual data Including a Descendancy Chart of 10 pages. There was no Index. Of course I included personal documents in the original, making It almost two inches thick.

Examples are being submitted for your examination. Also, In case it might be of Interest, I am including a page giving Information where these Genealogy Programs may be obtained. The Personal Ancestral File is from L.D.S. as mentioned previously; and the new PAF Ability from an Individual in Maryland.

I am sure there are other programs that would be just as satisfactory, and I have seen them advertised. This Is merely to tell you about what does the job for me. I have also done my husband's family; and hope to do other ancestral lines.

In closing, Good Luck In your own Research; and I present my latest version of the HENRY & ELIZABETH BIGLER ELLER FAMILY HISTORY to the ELLER FAMILY ASSOCIATION

Eller Chronicles Vol. VII (3) Aug, 1993

A Restoration Project
42nd 28th St.
Atlanta, GA 30309

  1. 1) Attached to this outline is a letter dated 21 October 1992 that details the two proposals of the project, that of David Eller and John Eller. The letter explains quite clearly the reasons why restoration is needed and that it is proper that we accomplish such efforts.

    This letter was posted to twenty descendants of John and Simeon Eller relatives who are closest to these lines. Within six months we had responses from 10 descendants who have contributed a total of $760. We continue to appeal to others of these lines to make a commitment. Our goal is $1000. The restoration of David's marker will be approximately $150.00. The gravestone for John will be about $450.00. Other expenses for this project will be a contribution to the New Hope Baptist Church Cemetery Fund and an honorarium for the Honor Guard which will attend the ceremony and dedication for David.

  2. 2) Organizing a Restoration Project:
    1. a. Obviously the first requisite is a NEED. Those of us who have visited the New Hope area have clearly seen the need to restore a broken gravestone. It is heartbreaking to see the stone of our Civil War casualty relative broken and lying on the ground. We also felt the NEED for a proper marker for John. This will be erected next to the gravestone of John's wife, Susannah Kerns Eller.

    2. b. Organizing this particular effort should involve two or three interested persons, it was thought. Myrrel Baldwin, Byron Eller and I did just that. My responsibility was writing the initial letter to descendants, contacting the New Hope Baptist Church for approval and establishing a target date for completion. Myrrel's responsibilities have been receiving and acknowledging contributions which he then forwarded to the EFA Treasurer, Nancy Eller. Disbursements for the expenses of the project will be made by the Treasurer. And, Myrrel is in command of having the marker repaired and contracting with a Wilkes County artisan to design a proper marker. Byron's involvement is in the area of planning a proper service and dedication for David Eller. Byron's connections with Civil War organizations have produced a N.C. Honor Guard which will be present at New Hope in July 1995.

    3. c). In summary, when such a restoration project is established, you must first feel the NEED. Then you must organize a small group to spear head the project and to carry out it's mission to a proper conclusion. Thought should be given to a budget that will be required, action taken to contact relatives and descendants for financial assistance AND participation in a proper dedication ceremony. You should target a time frame an conclusion for the project. Most importantly, funds collected for such a project, which is under the umbrella of the EFA, must properly be handled by the EFA Treasurer. At the conclusion of a restoration project, funds remaining after all expenses, should revert to the general Restoration and Research Fund.

(Eds. Lynn has provided a model for similar cemetery restoration projects. Those wishing to contribute to these projects should send their contributions to:
