1. Grello, Larry, email, 22 Feb 2005. "If you are interested, attached (in html format) is a report on genealogy that I believe to be correct (based on gathering information on various trees, sources, etc.) on the descendents of Etienne Gayneau through the Ganoes ... through my wife's line. . . . I don't have proof of that ... just data from somebody's tree on Rootsweb. The information I have proof (through own research, incl. census data) is Thomas Ganoe (born about 1817) to the present. The older information is based on other people's trees and information ... just looking to put the information out there ... hopefully ... for somebody to confirm, correct, etc."

NOTE: IT APPEARS WE ARE STILL WAITING VERIFICATION OF OUR 'MISSING LINK'.

If you have not read Helen Danemark's analysis on James, as Jacob's father, please do so now!

2. Jacob, Sr. is estimated to have been 44 years old when his first child with his 19 year old wife, Elizabeth Armitage, was born in 1779.. Where was he before this? Was this his second marriage?

NOTE-2: The above excerpt from the John Addleman (1773) & Sarah Ganoe family bible was rediscovered by Paul Vance, a descendant from Sarah M. (Addleman) Thompson in January, 2003. The 1860 census revealed that widow Sarah (Ganoe) Addleman (80) was living with her daughter Rachel Shugart (54) and her granddaughter Emma Thompson (11) at the home of William C. Shives (27) and his young son, Charles T. Shives (1/2) in Warriors Mark. [Wm. C. Shives was Rachel (Addleman) Shugart's son-in-law.]

James W. Wilson, Janesville

   "JAMES was born at the old family [Warriors Mark] homestead in Huntingdon Co., PA. He was a Civil War veteran and was but a youth when he enlisted at Philadelphia in the Heavy Artillery. He went to Fortress Monroe and served three months in heavy artillery, then re-enlisted, in the 188th P.V.I. (PA volunteer Infantry), in which he served until the end of the war. He participated in the engagement at Drury Bluff, May 16, 1864. He was engaged at Cold Harbor June 1-6, 1864 and at Chapin's farm, Sept. 29 the same year. . . . James was wounded in the right hand at Cold Harbor on June 3, 1864, and after a short stay in a hospital in Washington was given a furlough of 30 days which he spent at home. While there he married Miss BELL GANOE. but at the end of his leave of absence he returned to Washington and a few days later was transferred to a hospital at West Philadelphia. On Nov. 29, 1864 he rejoined his regiment in front of Richmond and remained there all winter. . . . Mr. WILSON did Provost duty for five months, and was not finally discharged from the service until Dec. 19, 1865, when he was paid off at Philadelphia."1

Addleman), d Feb 1911], children:

   ". . . Such a man was WILLIAM VAN DEVENDER GANOE, who was born at Warrior's Mark, Pa., on June 8, 1847, with ALFRED & NANCY DOUGLAS GANOE as father and mother. No details of his early life have been available for this memoir except that he was left fatherless at the early age of eight years. There were four brothers in the Ganoe family who heard and responded to the Call to Arms sounded by our country in the great civil strife of '61-'65, and of these four William Ganoe was the youngest. He enlisted on August 25, 1864, at Holidaysburg, Pa., in Company I, 205th Pennsylvabnia Infantry, serving first as a drummer boy, and later in the year becoming an orderly. On June 2, 1865, he received an honorable discharge from the service.

   Upon his return from the War he was invited by Mr. William Van Devender, an uncle by marriage, and after whom he was named, to come to Canton, Illinis, where he was enrolled in a business college to fit himself for a business career. Upon his completion of this course he was employed by a wholesale drug company, and as evidence of his ability and worth was offered a partnership in the business. During a part of this period he taught penmanship in Monmouth College. . . .It was not long until he felt the inward call to the Christian ministry and gladly answering it he took service under the presiding Elder on the Smithville CDharge in the Illinois Conference, serving there in that relation for two years. Learning that his brother MARTIN was contemplating entering the Central Pennsylvania Conference, he determined to come east and enter that Conference with him. Togerther these brothers were received into the Central Pennsylvania Conference at its second annual session, at Lewistown, Pa., in the year 1870. . . .

   On March 4, 1872, WILLIAM VAN DEVENDER GANOE and CYNTHIA CONSTANCE ADDLEMAN of Warrior's Mark, Pa., were united in holy matrimony, from which union two children were born, both of whom survive their father: Mrs. ELSIE PRICE RORABAUGH of Jersey Shore, Pa., and Lieutenant Colonel WILLIAM ADDLEMAN GANOE, who is in charge of the military unit at Boston University at Boston, Massachusetts. . . .

   The passing of Mrs. Ganoe in February, 1911, left him sorely bereaved, for she was both companion and co-laborer in his loved work, . . . he finally relinquished the task and went to spend nineteen years more in a beautiful retirement in the home of his daughter, growing old sweetly. . . . In 1930 he was honored by First Church, Jersey Shore by being made their Pastor Emeritus. The end came as he had desired and prayed, quickly and peacefully. On Monday, November 14, [1932] he entered the land of eternal day, his days on earth being numbered eighty and five years, five months and six days. Funeral services were held in the home of his daughter . . . [and] taken to the quiet resting place in the family plot in the beautiful little cemetery of Greencastle, Pa., there to be beside that of the dear companion who had preceived him to the homeland more than a score of years before."1

[William is reported to have written several books in his life, some of which were about the military and one about his early life in Pennsylvania.]

   "Our records show that WILLIAM ADDLEMAN GANOE, appointed from the 16th Congressional District of Pennsylvania,was admitted to the U.S. Military Academy as a Cadet 31 July 1902, age 21 years 2 months. His legal residence was Jersey Shore, Lycoming County, Pennsylvania and he listed the Reverend William V. Ganoe of Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania, as his parent or guardian. He was graduated and commissioned a 2nd Lt. in the 28th Infantry, standing No. 52 in a class of 111 members, 14 June 1907.

   "According to the 1964 Register of Graduates and Former Cadets, published by the Association of Graduates, West Point, New York, his present address is 4196 Roberts Point Circle, Sarasota, Florida."

   "GANOE, WILLIAM ADDLEMAN, My Heart Remembers, New York: Thomas Y. Crowell Co. (Vail-Ballou Press, Inc., Binghampton, NY), 1950, 245 pages. This copy of the out-of-print book was purchased by Martha Addleman Ennis in a used book store in San Francisco several years ago. She loaned it to this author for reproduction in April, 1990. The book was published when William Ganoe was sixty-nine years of age. It focuses upon the daily occurences of a Methodist Minister's young son in southcentral, Penn. A major theme is the closeness between mother and son. Many parts of this novel were probably autobiographical. William's (1881, Blue) father was a Methodist Minister, Rev. William V. Ganoe (1847), and his mother was Cynthia Constance Addleman (1852). William attended the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and graduated 14 June 1907. A copy of this book is also held by the Blair County Historical Society in Altoona, PA."
