51 Samuel was run over by a team of horses hitched to a grain binder. This happened in the farmyard in full view of his son David who was then 16 years old. Samuel Bowman ran in front of the startled team thinking he could grab the reins and get them stopped. Bowman, Samuel M. ...[Eby 542] (I17490)

53 Under Hannah's entry in the Ebybook [6931], it states that she was married to David WISMER "a sawmiller", and that they live in Plattsville. Under David Witmer's entry in the Ebybook [8337], it states that he is a "sawyer" and married to Hannah Shantz and that they resided in Plattsville. I believe it is possible that Hannah married David Witmer not David Wismer. A number of children are listed under Hannah - they can be added when it is verified whether the family name is Wismer or Witmer. Shantz, Hannah ...[Eby 6931] (I50656)

55 "Anna" was the only daughter of Joseph H. Bauman and his first wife Anna Shantz. Ezra Eby gives this childs name as Anna. The Bauman Family History gives this daughter's name as Lydia.

Elgin, and his sister Candice (who latermarried Archie Stauffer) were raised for a few years by my grandparents,Daniel and Angeline. My best recall is that Elgin and Candice's father was

58 "Carl settled in Maryland, near Baltimore, where he resided for some years. When pretty well advanced in years he, with his family, moved near Rochester, New York, where he died, leaving a large family whose children are now pretty much scattered throughout New York State in the vicinity of Buffalo, while others are residing in Michigan."

Note by J. Scott Campbell (March 2007). It would appear that the above statement is not correct. From research I have done, it would seem that Carl P. Wing moved to Pittsford, Monroe County, NY very shortly after the family's arrival into the United States in 1829. Barbara Wing (Huber), Carl's wife, died in 1836 and their son , Freddie (George Friederich Wing) died in 1831 and was also buried in the Oakwood Cemetery at Penfield. This would suggest that the family came to this area of New York State about 1830.

62 "My great uncle, Aaron, is one and the same who married Lydia Shantz.... records of the Mannheim Mennonite Church cemetery shows that Aarondied at age 83 in 1957. The tombstone records his wife's name as LydiaShantz. I don't know whether he had a second wife named Lydia. I alsodon't recall that Aaron had any children. I do recall that my great uncle,Aaron, came to visit us on the farm when I was under age 5 or 6. He alwaysbrought white mint candies and offered them to us children, if we had thenerve to ask. I never had the courage to request a candy, but would ask my
aunt, Ellen, to ask on my behalf." Ken Eby

63 "The Schiedel Book", source of much of the information on the family of Abraham & Mary Ann (Zeller) Weaver doesn't list Alberta as a daughter of the family. That information comes from Mary Ann's obituary in the Gospel Herald. No dates are available for Alberta. Weaver, Alberta (I30246)

65 "You'll be flying along some nights with a full moon. You're up at 45,000 feet. Up there you can see it like you can't see it down here. It's just the big, bright, clear moon. You look up there and just say to yourself: I've got to get up there. I've just got to get one of those flights."-Roger Chaffee (The New York Times, January 29, 1967, p. 48.)


"Problems look mighty small from 150 miles up."
Roger B. Chaffee quote


January 27, 1967, Cape Kennedy, Florida ... It was a seemingly typical Friday at Cape Kennedy. The mild winter winds blew softly and carried a whisper of the activity on Pad 34.
Cradled in its gantry was a powerful Saturn I-B rocket, unfueled, but waiting... waiting for the countdown of a simulated launch. In just eighteen days this mighty giant was expected to soar from its pad into the mysterious realms of outer space; the first manned flight of the project known as Apollo. Eventual destination -- the moon.
Perched atop the twenty -two story rocket was a comparatively small white capsule bearing a colorful painting of the American flag, the words "United States" stencilled clearly just above it.
Inside the capsule, preparing for the simulated liftoff were three men, the prime crew of Apollo 204, courageous and proud in their roles.
The test began at 1:00 p.m. EST with the entry of the silvery suited spacemen into the cabin. At 2:50 p.m., the hatch was closed and sealed, and the cabin filled with oxygen. The men relaxed in individual contour couches and they, too, waited.
The test had already been delayed due to a malfunction of the oxygen and communications systems, and outside the command module, 220 feet off the ground, technicians doggedly worked, monitoring test equipment and making last minute adjustments.
Adjacent to the launch pad, 1,000 feet away, was the blockhouse where other technicians and NASA officials were gathered to view the happenings over a closed circuit telemetry monitor.
"T minus 10," a voice boomed out from the concrete structure, indicating the wait was nearly over and the simulated takeoff close at hand.

Now, 6: 31 p.m. EST -- a brilliant white flash!
"Fire in the spacecraft!" cried a voice from within the capsule.

The television monitors and all communications went dead.
Dense smoke poured from the hatch as workmen rushed up the 25O-foot steel gantry in a high speed elevator in an attempt to save the astronauts. Twenty-seven men were overcome by the bitter black smoke and intense heat, and it took nearly five endless minutes to pry open the charred metal door of the cabin ... Too late...
Americans were stunned by the loss of their heroes, Virgil Grissom, Edward White II, and Roger B. Chaffee. The nation, and indeed the world, mourned.
Since that tragedy on the launch pad, countless pages have been written eulogizing the three comrades and speculating as to the cause of the fire. A board comprised of highly qualified experts, after weeks of intensive investigation, revealed that a single electrical spark is thought to have touched off the burst of flame. The exact cause may never be known.
Roger, Gus Grissom, and Ed White knew and accepted the dangers of their chosen life. They were pioneers of space, and the universe was waiting to be conquered.
"If we die, we want people to accept it. We are in a risky business and we hope that if anything happens to us, it will not delay the program. The conquest of space is worth it."
These words were spoken by Lieut. Commander Grissom, but their meaning was shared by each of the astronauts.
