Dillon/Haberstich at Trinity Lutheran
Good Morning,
I am a maternal 3x great-grandson of Daniel and Hannah H Dillon (Memorial# 63846396 & 63846359 respectively). I have been looking for Hannah H's maiden name for some time now and have recently come across some circumstantial evidence that leads me to believe that it was "Haberstich" and her parents were (hypothetically at this point) Samuel and Hannah Haberstich (Memorial# 63844934 and 63844952 respectively). You added the memorials for all 4 of these individuals - for that I thank you!
From _CLOSE_ examination of these 4 photos together - it _APPEARS_ that Daniel and Hannah's markers are directly in front of Samuel and Hannah Haberstich's markers - which would lend a great deal more credence to a familial connection between these individuals. However, the resolution of the marker photographs is not good enough for me to _POSITIVELY_ confirm this.
My question(s): Do you gather plot plans before doing your photo expeditions or do you maintain a row/marker to photograph record of your walking tour? Or - hopefully more likely - do you have higher resolution copies of the photographs for these 4 markers - particularly Daniel and Hannah Dillon's markers that you would be willing to email to me?
Thank you in advance for your time and effort on my family's behalf!
Best Regards,
David Brown (Find A Grave#47251759)

Ott Family Graves
Hi Tricker-You manage memorials for several Otts in Gethsemane in Laureldale, Berks. Not requesting a transfer, but am wondering if they are ancestors of yours. My great grandmother Theresa Ott Wisser is connected to this family. Always looking to say hello to a cousin I've never met!

RE: Daniel Rapp 70852817
I do not have him in my records as a veteran. I read his funeral story which said he had a private funeral and no mention of military. Probably a misplaced marker.

Find A Grave Memorial# 70852817 and 70852829

Daniel and Mary Ann Rapp are my 2nd great grandparents. Would you have any additional information about either of them? (parents, children, other relatives, etc?) Your photograph of Daniel's grave indicates that he had served in the Civil War, yet I'm unable to find anything to verify this fact. Do you have any record showing which regiment he served with and/or his dates of service? Any information or assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, Tricker! This memorial is my aunt. Would you mind adding "Habel" as her maiden name & linking her to her parents at #59292071 & #59292082, John & Elizabeth Habel. Also, if you run across William P. Habel (b. 1863) & his wife, Elizabeth (Groff), b. 1/1866, I would appreciate a pix. They are my great grandparents. Thank you, so much! Linda Tyler

Hello Tricker,
Through reading through the various entries I was able to add information that you are asking me to edit as unknown. I'm not sure what to do here. Drop me an email.

RE: Marion R. (Baver) Briner

Ahh Haa.. I must say, I completely agree. Perhaps we may all get so focused on obituaries sometimes.. I didn't think of looking for birth announcement either. Great call, memorial updated.

Thanks a ton!

RE: Marion R. (Baver) Briner
Dear Jim,

Thank you for the link. I actually came across it in a search while awaiting your reply. I hope you do not mind, but I wish to hold off on making the update based on that site, as it's unknown where the data posted on it actually comes from (I've had it produce errors in the past). I will however post a comment of this date as "possible" in Marion's bio. I hope to uncover something more significant and reliable, but no luck thus far.

I appreciate all your work and look forward to a day we could finally meet on one of my return trips home to Berks Co.

I saw that you had made a suggestion for Marion's date of birth. Could you possibly send me a copy of the source for my files or point me in the right direction?

Much appreciated as always!

If you get back to Forest Lawn sometime in the future I would appreciate a photo of the plaque after the date was added. Our family has moved away and there's no one left to take a photo.

RE: Trostle
I wasn't looking for anyone in particular when I was there shooting photos. And I have no idea who I'm shooting as I do. If they look like there's any intelligence left on the stone I take a shot and figure them out at home. See the photo of Peter Schweitzer 1730, I'm really proud of that one.
Anyway, not knowing it was George Trostle at the time I didn't look for his wife. She could be there right next to him. Maybe you want to ride out and take a look. George was near the back rows, about center.
