- After one false alarm and the real deal, we became grandparents to our 5th grandson.
- Helped two sons move into their new homes.
- Our home vegetable garden is now done for the season, and weeds pulled where they once rooted in my flower gardens.
- Most importantly of all, I am realizing that the Monath family descendants are slowly dying out and difficult to find.
So, I will take a chance and hope that this person is also researching her family roots, and will contact me when she sees this picture that I found among my parents' photos.
Using U. S. Federal Census reports and newspaper clippings that were found at the York County Heritage Trust, I am 99% sure that her name is Phyllis M. Monath-Emgee, daughter of William Wesley Monath and Mary Elizabeth Sullivan-Monath. Grandparents would have been William H. Monath and Ida May Yingling.
So, I think that I will sit on this for a bit and hope that the lady who is on Facebook might see this and make the first move. I by no means am posting this photograph for no other reason but to make a connection.
Finding two bits of information, no matter how small or insignificant, makes for a satisfactory day of research.
Thanks for reading!
