Family Tree


Loamie Freeburn, daughter of George Snyder Freeburn and Caroline Enders Freeburn, was born on April 8, 1874 in Perry County, PA.  Her first husband was _________ Fitzjarld (Fitzgerald).  She died on June 24, 1958 at the age of 84.  (Source: Certificate of Death)  She suffered from diabetes and I remember her giving herself insulin shots.  She also loved to fish.  Her obituary lists her as a member of the First Methodist Church of Hanover, PA and a member of the Harmony Council, Daughters of America. 

I have begun researching ___ Fitzjarld.  I believe he worked for the Pennsylvania RR. I inherited his pocket watch which is a rare "Ball Watch Co." watch.  See left. On the face are the intials "B of RT" which indicates he was a member of the "Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen."  Apparently their symbol appears on gravestones of their members. See leftFrom his wife's application to marry Alexander Hay she lists herself as "Loamie Fitzjarld" and the date of death of her first husband as "Aug. 2- 1906" My mother, Florence Johnson, remembers that he was good with his hands and made a metal stove for his daughter Anna.

Charles R.              b. 18--
