    1. [LAWSHE] Web Page Update
    2. John Charles Tippet
    3. Fellow Behymer/Beckelhymer/Picklesimer/Hymer/Simer/etc. researchers: Please be advised that I have just posted a major update to my web page. This represents a year's worth of work as the last update was posted in Aug 2006. Point your browser to: http://members.cox.net/johntippet and click on Bechtelsheimer Genealogy. Included with this update are the following: (1) I have added a signficant number of new death certificate transcriptions for the state of Ohio as follows: a) There are now 500 Ohio death certificates listed for the period from 1909 - 1953 (was: 293) for an increase of 207. All but 44 of these have been transcribed with these 44 yet to be looked up. I plan to look these up on my upcoming trip to Clermont. Thanks go to Kathy Gilbert for many hours spent in the Cincinnati Library looking up some of these records. b) There are now 10 deaths listed from the Ohio death certificate index for the year 1954 (previously there were none, i.e. this section of my web page was "under construction") c) There are now 373 deaths listed from the 1958 - 2000 Ohio death certificate index (was: 356) for an increase of 17 d) There are now 171 Clermont County death certificate transcriptions listed for the period 1856 - 1908 (was 167) for an increase of 6 e) There are now 59 Clermont County death certificate transcriptions listed for the period > 1953 (was 12) for an increase of 47 f) I added the Clinton County death certificates for the period 1867 - 1908, for a total of 5 g) I added the City of Cincinnati death records for the period Jun 1865 to 1909, for a total of 15. These records come from the Blegin Library at the University of Cincinnati. Thanks go to Kathy Gilbert who provided these records. h) I added 3 additional entries to the T P White Funeral home records for Clermont County, OH (New Richmond) for the period 1889 - 1925, for a total of 255 i) I added the T P White Funeral home records for Clermont County, OH (New Richmond) for the period 1926 - 1936 (this was previously "under construction") j) I added the T P White Funeral home records for Hamilton County, OH (Mt Washington) for the period 1935 - 1976 (this was previously "under construction") (2) I have added a signficant number of new death certificate transcriptions for the state of Kentucky as follows: a) There are now 272 Kentucky death certificates listed for the period from 1911 - 1951. All but 67 of these have been transcribed with these 67 yet to be looked up. I plan to look these up on my upcoming trip to Clermont. Thanks go to Kathy Gilbert for many hours spent in the Falmouth and Kenton Co Libraries looking up some of these records. b) There are now 255 deaths listed from the Kentucky death certificate index for the period 1952 - 2000. c) Previously there were 380 deaths listed from the Kentucky death certificate index for the period 1911 to 2000 with none of these having been transcribed. My web page now breaks out those prior to 1952 (which for the most part have been transcribed) to those 1952 and after which are indexed only. (3) I have added a signficant number of new death certificate transcriptions for the state of Missouri as follows: a) There are now 112 Missouri death certificates listed for the period from 1910 - 1956. All but 13 of these have been transcribed. These 13 are for deaths that occurred in the years 1936 to 1944. These will be added once the Missouri State Archives has added death certificates for these years to their web site. Previously there were 68 deaths listed from the Missouri death certificate index for the period 1910 to 1955 with none of these having been transcribed. (4) I have updated in red font those who are not in the author's database or whose parents have not as yet been identified in the death indices for the following states (unknowns/total): Alabama (11/13), Arkansas (12/16), California (180/415), Florida (44/68), Georgia (85/136) Idaho (2/7), Illinois (14/58), Indiana, (13/92), Michigan (20/31), Minnesota (6/12), Montana (5/14), North Carolina (27/78), Oregon (17/35), South Carolina (2/11), South Dakota (4/6), Texas (54/85), Utah (3/4), Washington (16/43), and West Virginia (0/58) plus the SSDI (1,084/1,819). If you have any information on these individuals, please contact the author. (5) With this update, a significant number of additional census entries are included. These are primarily for the Lawshe family including all spelling variations. Included are all of the male lines and most of the female lines through at least 3-generations from Elder Johan George. All censuses from 1790 through 1930 have now been transcribed. All told, this consists of 27,276 lines of census entries. Included are all entries for Behymer, Beckelhymer, Picklesimer, Pickelheimer, Hymer, Simer and now Lawshe (all spelling variations). Approximate increase in the number of entries for the various census years is as follows: 1790 and 1800: no change 1810: 25% 1829: 6% 1830: 23% 1840: 19% 1850: 15% 1860: 11% 1870: 13% 1880: 10% 1900: 4% 1910: 3% 1920: 1% 1930: 1% Note that entries in red font in the census section of my web page represent individuals whose parents are unknown to me or who are not in my database. These missing link entries amount to about 7.5% of the 27,000+ lines of census entries transcribed. Almost all of these individuals show up in the Beckelhymer missing links section of my web page. If you have any information on any of these individuals, please let me know. (6) I have now posted 3-generation census summaries for the descendants of Margaret Bechtelsheimer and Abraham Lawshe. (7) I have updated the 3-generation census summaries for the following children of Abraham, Sr: Daniel and Elizabeth (8) I have updated the 3-generation census summaries for the following children of John, Sr: Elizabeth, David, Nathaniel, Abraham Adam, Jacob, Solomon and Joel (9) I have updated the 3-generation census summaries for the following children of Jacob, Sr: John 3rd and David (10) I added a section for Hunterdon Co, NJ wills. Currently there are two Lawshe wills posted with the rest "under construction" (11) I added a section for Hunterdon Co NJ marriage licenses for the period 1795 - 1875. Currently there are 30 Lawshe marriages listed. (12) I added a section for Somerset Co NJ marriage licenses for the period 1778 - 1875. Currently there is 1 Lawshe marriage listed. (13) I added 10 Hamilton Co, OH deeds for the period 1787 -1859 (previously, this section was "under construction") (14) I added 8 Bath Co, KY deeds for the period 1811 -1912 (this section is new) (15) I added the City of Cincinnati birth records for the period Jun 1874 to 1909, for a total of 36. These records come from the Blegin Library at the University of Cincinnati. Thanks go to Kathy Gilbert who provided these records. (16) I updated the Clermont County, OH birth records for the period 1867-1909. There are now 264 entires (was: 231) for an increase of 32. (17) I added the following surnames to the SSDI: Hymer, Pickleheimer, Psimer, Simer and Simers (18) I re-posted the Beckelhymer main descendancy narrative on Johan George Beckelhymer through 5 generations of his descendants (5,084 individuals, up 11% from that posted previously). With this update all of the census enumerations are referenced in the endnotes section of my web page (currently 5,251 references, up from just under 4,734 for an increase of 11%). Some, but not all of the other records posted, such as birth, marriage and death records are referenced in the endnotes section of my web page.. (19) I re-posted the Beckelhymer missing links descendancy narrative for those lines for which there is no obvious connection to one of the main branches of the Beckelhymer family tree (867 individuals, up 1.4% from that posted previously). This section includes almost all of the missing-link individuals from the 1790 to 1930 census enumerations. Again, please let me know if you have any information on any of these individuals. The format of the descendancy narrative is slightly different (but I thnk improved) from the previous posting. This is because I upgraded to a newer version of the genealogy program I use and it works a little differently. (20) I added a web page counter. (21) Lastly, I updated the acknowledgements section of my web page to include Kathy Gilbert and Theodore Thatcher Lawshe III. Kathy has done a fantastic amount of research in the Cincinnati records and surrounding areas. We all owe her a big thank you. And, I relied heavily on the prior reseach of Theordore Thatcher Lawshe III. Enjoy! John Charles Tippet [email protected]
