Bio and Links
Bio Photo I developed taphophilia in Nov 2007. I'm adding what I can, photos and accurate transcriptions, because stones deteriorate and there's no better time than now.

On a philosophical note: I believe that an unmarried woman's surname should never be listed in the "maiden name" field, and a divorced woman who returned to her maiden name should also have that name as her surname

Jacob A. Buterbaugh (Find A Grave Memorial# 66808192

Thank you so much for your wonderful work on Find A Grave. It is my favorite website for researching my family history, and thanks to folks like you, I have discovered many, many family members.

I believe there is an error in the mother and father of Jacob A. Buterbaugh (Find A Grave Memorial# 66808192). According to a note on his Find A Grave site, his parents are Peter Puterbaugh and Mary Ake. However, he is linked to William and Katherine Christena (Rodkey) Buterbaugh.

According to the obituary posted on, Jacob R. Buterbaugh (Find A Grave Memorial# 101834425) is the son of William and Katherine Christena (Rodkey) Buterbaugh.

Thank you again for your hard work,
Judy Roatcap-Haselwood

Thanks for correction... fat fingers, or working too long at computer! What do you think about a woman who has been married several times and has children by the previous husband? do you include the previous marriage surname in the memorial? always a dilemma.

Thank you so much for correcting my typo in her memorial. I have not been able to connect her to her father though there were McNeelys in the area. Got any info??? :-)
