RE: Lance Families
Thank you for the memorials and photos for George and Viola Fries Lance, and the link to their son Clayton. That's great! He's actually George F. Lance III--grandson to the George F. and Clara Collins Lance I wrote you about. I'm still hopeful for Joel and Anna Fritts Vance. I wish Charles Evans burial register was online. I'm finding so many people who are supposedly interred there but do not have memorials. Thanks for all your help. Marina Yeager, wife of great-grandnephew to Edward Yeager (Mayor from 1902-1904)

Lance Families
Hello. I'm interested in several Lance family members who are assumed interred at Charles Evans Cemetery.

Joel Clark Lance 1811-1888
Anna Fritts Lance 1812-

George F. Lance 1843-1908
Clara Collins Lance 1848-1931 (his wife)

Another son who died at Reading may also be at Charles Evans Cemetery but I do not know that for a fact. His death certificate only says Geigertown, PA.

Joel C. Lance Jr. 1847-1915

Whatever help you can be is very much appreciated.

RE: Sarah Jane Mengel
Regarding my previous post, I've found the proper memorial. Her Pennsylvania death certificate lists death at 1:00 a.m., November 5, 1927. I do not have a copy of the obituary. I realize the headstone cannot be corrected, but thought the actual certificate date may be helpful to some. Kind regards.

RE: Sarah Jane Mengel

With regard to the above, I believe your response may have been to a message I sent via the "edit" option. Would you mind providing a F.A.G. memorial number to which I can refer? Thank you.

Hi Tricker. I just wanted to say thank you for all the memorials you've posted on Find a Grave. Countless numbers of the memorials are ancestors of mine in Berks County. I've gained a lot of valuable information. Thanks again!

Thanks for the transfer. She was complicated. A out-of-wedlock who was adopted.

RE: Grave site for Emma C. Hinkel
The Emma C mystery has been solved. Her mother was Sarah Bearr with Israel Spayd. Sarah was 17 1/2 at the time of Emma's birth. It is not clear if Sarah and Isreal were married. But Sarah eventually marries David S. Hinkel and Emma is shown living with them in a 1870 census. It is not clear if David actually adopted her or if she just went by the name Hinkel.

Emma eventually marries James Heiser and has two daughters. The first is Caroline Elizabeth and her birth record shows Emma as Emma Cath (spayde) sic Heiser and the second is my grandmother Edna May where her mother is listed as Emma Cathrine daughter of Israel and Sarah Spayd.

If you respond, please reply to my e mail address

Your Premature Memorial/Burial.
“Trickster”: In response to your improper remarks in your response to my comments below and since you misspell people’s surnames on purpose as a direct insult, take note: I don’t give a damn who you are or what your relationship to the deceased was. Friends do not do what you did if they have any sort of proper rearing, which you obviously do not. Your act is creating a memorial prematurely is a tasteless one and does not honour the deceased as you seem to think, but discredits him by your alleged association with his good name.

As for your so-called aide to humanity via the website Find-a-Grave, all I can say is that professional researchers take that website with a grain of salt because amateurs such as yourself (20,000+ memorials, indeed) pepper the system with errors and misinformation all because, like you, they jump to conclusions before they get their facts lined up correctly. I see several complaints here about your own errors in dates, etc.

Finally Sir, I do not hide behind some nom de plume and render my messages anonymously. My full name is clearly visible as you can see. So what are you afraid of “Trickster?” Having someone whom you angered come to your door one night and sort you?

You may do whatever you wish, but that cannot control the thoughts of other people who read your messages. Remember: "You can fool some of the people some of the time .... "

About Your PrematureBurial.
I do not know who you are, but I was Doug's college roommate at Millersville and knew him well. Don't you think that your "premature burial" of his remains is a wee bit on the tackless side? You might have waited until he was in his grave before "jumping" to add his name to your so-called 20,000+ memorials that you have created to date.

As you failed to provide a personal e-mail address, you leave no other method of communicating with you other than via the "public message" method of Find-a-Grave. You cannot undo what you have done, so I am afraid that your reputation is now tarnished. Sad. Very sad for poor Doug to have friends like you.

Philip J. Kuhn
Philip (one l) J. Kuhn #73179045 was married to Mantana C. Kuhn (Kunkel) #73179030. He was much older (26 years!), but she is listed as his wife on his Pa. death certificate and she is listed as his wife (marriage #2) on the 1910, 1920, and 1930 censuses. They had at least 6 children together. Philip's first wife, Magdalena Hintz died in 1908. This information will also affect the information for their daughter, Virgie #94939491 and the information on Magdalena Kuhn's page, #73179105. Virgie is a daughter, not a sister, of Mantana. Thank you for all your unselfish work in helping to further genealogy and finding our ancestors!

Obituary for Francis Palm
I am researching the Palm Family Berks County. I came across an obituary for Francis Palm Memorial# 71693773. I would like to add this information to his memorial. I am not a direct descendant. He was my great uncle. The obituary was published in the Reading Times in 1938. I found it on If you would like the information, you can email me at Thanks.

Thank you so much.

Your photos of Matilda (Jackson) Connard and Henry Connard
Dear Mr Tricker,
First thank you for your kindnesses in taking so many photos of the tombstones in Reading Cemeteries .

It happens that I have an extensive series of original first hand accounts of the Civil War as seen from Reading written by my relative Thomas Jackson. He founded a rope making business there in 1820s and is also buried in the Charles Evans Cemetery along with most of his family. Photos of the gravestones (along with the original letters) are shown in our extensive website (You will see that we have had wonderful support from other citizens of Reading in order to put this together.)

My purpose now is to request that I might have your permission to copy the two photos of the tombstones of Matilda and Henry Connard and add them to the Thomas Jackson website- along with references to the locations in the Findagrave archive and acknowledgment that you are the copyright holder of these two photographs. (And any other credits that you deem appropriate.)

I would be happy to explain further if you wished to contact me via Thank you.
