Bio and Links
Bio Photo Any memorial that I am not related to will be gladly transferred following FAG guidelines.

Please, if you are going to use my pictures
for your personal use. I'm fine with that
But, Please contact me first if your are placing it on the internet. Or at the very least give me credit for all my efforts!!!
I find my pictures all over the internet if you using my pictures, are you related? How?

These families are of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Currently I am the Family Historian
for the "Brubaker Families of America."

Also the Rankin/Renkin families of Pennsylvania.
And my father's family HOGARTH and MOTLEY are in the Philadelphia area, and Lancaster & Schuylkill Counties.
Now reseaching the DUNSTER family of New York.

I've been recording names as I go, so I can help the next person looking for that missing family member.

Any corrections or missing information you would like me to add, just forward it on to me.
PLEASE use the edit link...

Elizabeth Hoffman (Witmer) Stauffer
FYI, Eliz. was married to Henry Miller Stauffer, who is buried (w/his 2nd wife, Catherine Shuman) at St. Anthony's Cath. Cem. in Lancaster. Eliz. & Henry had four children, one of whom, John, died at age 5 and is buried next to Eliz. The other three children are: Emma Witmer (Stauffer) Tweed, who is buried in Woodward Hill Cem., Lancaster; my grandmother, Mary Witmer (Stauffer) Buckwalter, buried in Cedar Lawn Cem., Lancaster; and, Howard, who is buried w/Henry & Catherine @ St. Anthony's Cem. Perhaps, you could connect mother w/children?

I am still trying to connect the dots on Elizabeth's family, but it is my u/standing that the Witmers were related to Hoffmans, Kauffmans & Brubakers. Since Brubaker is on your family list, do you have info. that connects them to the Witmers? (Some of the research in Lanc. Co. is difficult because there are hundreds/thousands of Witmers, Stauffers, Herrs, etc. LOL) Thanks, Judi

oopps ... update from message below
That other person I can't even contact. They have their messages disabled. That SHOULD NOT be allowed at "Find a Grave." See what you can do and if it is their mistake I will contact Find a Grave too. They need to then have their profile disabled for not being able to get messages. SORRY, but if you take on the job you should do it right. :-) That means to be available for others that have concerns abut their loved ones.
BTW. thank you for what you are doing. You seem to have good communication on the board. Good job!

oops...... one gravestone, two different cemeteries
Sorry to bother you. However, you and another person have the same gravestone up on "Find a Grave" but at two different cemeteries. Could you get together with the other person and decided which graveyard was this gravestone photographed at? It is a distance ancestor of mine and I would like to enter it correctly at my site on
Here are the two memorial numbers of the same gravestone at two different locations. (Memorial # 58304028 and Memorial #11297805). I did leave a message at the other person's site on "Find a Grave." Hopefully one of you can get it straightened out. Thank you so much. :-)

Rebecca (Young) Koser
I noticed this posting today. Rebecca is buried near her mother, Magdalena, "wife of Michael Young" (whose resting place is unknown.) What is also unknown, to me anyway, is the maiden name of Magdalena.

By any chance do you either know of it, or have some suggestions for me? She is one of my "dead ends" and I'd love to solve this mystery.

Thank you, and congratulations on your excellent work here.

RE: Daniel & Silvia Heister
That is understandable. You took the cemetery photo and I thought perhaps you lived near. Thank you for your reply.

Daniel & Silvia Heister
Can you verify for me if Daniel Hiester 120442718 and his wife Silvia Hiester 120442790 are physically buried in the Pine Grove Cemetery in Elverson?
I am finding documentation that they are buried in St. John's Cemetery in Pine Grove, Schuylkill Co. PA (17963) The person who made the listing is giving me a hard time about other listings he made based on incorrect documentation. I am trying to figure out if they lived in Reading, and previously lived here in Pine Grove, Why would they be buried in Elverson? I am just seeking accuracy in the records.
Thank you. Gippygirl
