Find A Grave Memorial# 23411576
I googled it and the obit did not come up. Can you email the obit to me or just put the obit on his memorial.

Find A Grave Memorial# 23411576
I don't see his obit on his Find A Grave memorial. You said you have one? Could you email it to me or scan/post it to his Find A Grave memorial?
He is a 1st cousin x 2 removed. I am related to the Deckers severals ways. Lydia Decker is my GGGgrandmother married John Sayles and Sarah Sayles if my GGrandmother. More Deckers is my GGgrandfather Gustavus Decker...I have a lot of Deckers in my family.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 23411576
I saw those 2 names mentioned as their parents also. I am pouring through subscription websites and other websites looking for obituaries on the Deckers. I pay for obituaries individually through Rutherford if I find the obits there. I have paid people to go into libraries around the copy an obit that is no where else found and the librarians won't do it. The Decker family is tough to research. I too like proof which is why I buy genealogy family books and use google ebooks geneaolgy. I snapshot the pages as my proof if I find the proof. I've tracked down cemetery sextons Deckers are supposed to be buried in and have them verify which are in there. If you find the parents, let me know and I will let you know if I find them. Can't give up.

RE: Lucky Lytch
Thank you Mr. Decker. I hope that I didn't duplicate yours. It may have been removed, I hope, because yours is much better. Yes, Larry tells me that his grand parents were the best. He misses them very much. I just linked the father to Seth on here. Finally found him. Took some doing as his name was changed from Lytchliter to Lytch when he moved from Iowa, I believe. Fascinating family history. Thanks, Geoffrey.

Never mind on the removal of a photo. It is 2:30am and guess I'm tired...didn't see cremated note.

Please remove one of the photos so someone can post the headstone photo. There is only room for so many photos and one should be the headstone.

RE: I'm confused
Hi Cousin!

I'm confused too --- but I think the guidelines suggest keeping the oldest memorials.

Why don't I transfer any of your family that you wish to have? I go through Johan & Margaret to John Miesse & Catherine Kline, so we're pretty good after the first generation. It would be easiest if you could please use the Edit tab to make the requests.

The same works in reverse. Please let me know if any of mine are newer than yours.

Hoping this method doesn't put too much work on your end! I'm under some deadlines, so if you'd rather wait until March, happy to take a closer look at the conflicts.

Hello Geoffrey, your memorial for him is a duplicate. I have preceded you. Among other things, his burial place will not be the St. Stephen's Basilica.

Best Regards

Hi. Your memorial is a duplicate of the Find A Grave Memorial# 123778534. Please, remove it. It is a good rule to check if there is already a memorial before adding it. Regards.

Thressa Decker Grave
I just wanted to let you know that I was out to the cemetery today and could not find Thressa's grave. Two of us walked all around that area. I found her parents' markers, but not hers.

Johann Peter Klopp, Sr.

Thank you for the wonderful bio you posted on his memorial. He is my direct 6g grandfather on my mother's side. Years ago, I had his German will translated. He didn't exactly leave the settlement at the Ephrata Cloisters. As a married man, he chose to live with his wife and those of his children that were with him on a farm he purchased a few miles from the Cloisters. Therefore, he was what was called a 'Householder' by the Cloister Brethren. His death as "old Brother Klopp" was recorded in their records. There is mention of two of the Cloister brethren in his will and he left the Cloister Community money with a stipulation that his heirs were not to protest that bequest. Through his daughters, he has many descendents in Lancaster County, PA. My mother was from Lebanon County, PA. and traced her line from John Peter Sr. > John Peter Jr. > Peter III > Joseph > Ephraim > Nathaniel > Paul > Grace, my mom. Johannn Peter Klopp was a truly remarkable man, you've honored him well. If you haven't visited the Ephrata Cloisters, you might put it on your 'bucket list.' It has been restored and is a lovely place, very serene and uplifting, a haven of peace in this hectic world. Thanks again,

Catherine Elizabeth Batdorf 1697 married Christian Wilhelm Walborn

On Catherine Elizabeth Batdorf Walborn's findagrave, you mention that when her father (Johann Jacob Peter Batdorf) died, her mother (Anna maria Catharina Anspach Batdorf )"left with her two children anyhow".
This is my 6x great grandmother.
According to "The Batdorf Family" by Maxine Blankenhorn Bennett, 1984, Anna Maria Catharina Anspach Batdorf, widow of Johann Jacob Peter Batdorf, went on the ships with 5* children and 3 died before they reached America, leaving Catherine Elizabeth Batdorf born 1697 and Martin Batdorf born 1698 and their mother the only survivers of the Batdorf family when they arrived in America. Her father and 3 other siblings probably died of Typhus. They had traveled from Germany to Holland and then to London England to get the ships to America. There were very poor conditions with overcrowding and poor sanitation both in London waiting for the ships and on the ships to America. Most of the children under 10 did not survive. In New York, they were quarantined on Nut Island (Governors Island)
and then moved to Livingston Manor (near Columbia County, NY) to work in the tar and pitch factory. They eventually moved to Schoharie NY, and then they went thru the woods, built rafts and went down the Susquehanna River to the Tulpehocken Settlement in Pennsylvania.
The family feels that the 3 Anspach males that were on the trip and in Livingston Manor and then on to Tulpehocken Pa were Anna Maria Catharina Anspach's brothers- Baltasar, George and Leonhard Anspach.
wondering if you could change that about the 2 children. thank you .

RE: Sarah E Allen
Mary E. Allen is buried in Thomas J. Allen's lot, and is likely either his daughter or his daughter-in-law. That's all I know about her. Her place of birth comes from her burial record.

Are you refering to Sarah Eckert Allen in Evergreen Cemetery? If so, I entered her place of birth as reflected in Evergreen's records.
