I'm Heather, a mother of three, and have been doing research since 2002. I also work full time, so if it takes me some time to respond to your edits/notes, I apologize.
I am currently adding memorials from Salem German Reformed Cemetery, Philadelphia.
The memorials I've created for Skippack Brethren Cemetery and Trinity Reformed Cemetery in Collegeville, PA were originally transcribed by Wilmer Reinford in 1961 and 1963.
I am reluctant to add memorials for individuals who died between 1985 and present day, out of respect for the family of the deceased. I have posted many in the past, but will not continue to do so unless they are my own family. If I have memorialized your loved one who has passed recently, please contact me, so I can transfer their memorial to you.
I have a passion for telling every story, whether it's about my own family or people unrelated to me. I see important stories in the birth, life, and death of every person; right down to every stillborn child, step-child, second (and third, and fourth) spouse and those who lived in the alms houses, asylums, and orphanages. Whether these people lived one minute, or a hundred years; left a large fortune, or were buried in a pauper's grave with no marker: their lives are a story to uncover.
These are the stories of true character in our personal histories, and are my favorite to discover.
85624280 Ray Wichowski LVPennGen, OMG, I almost fell out of my chair when I saw that picture of my uncle Ray! I would gladly pay the postage to get it back home to my files. God Bless you for posting it!
Ray is mom's brother, Marcella Wichowski Gazda. Tom
151029216 No not related. I photographed all of the Hellertown Union cemetery. My wife is from Hellertown and we have purchased plots there. Yes you can transfer if you wish, 46889755. Or I will ask for them to be merged. Thanks, Theron....
Family Photos Hi, We have spoke before. If I recall you are descended from Allen Weber 1900-1946. His brother Walter is great grandfather to me. Anyway I have a photo album dating from about 1860 through 1900 with photographs which had belonged to Frances Mullikin 1845- and her son Scott Allen. I also have photographs of Allen Weber and his brother Walter and others which may be of interest. Let me know if you are interested and I can email some of them to you.
Thank you Just wanted to send a note of appreciation for all the work you've done at Union/West End, and for all the suggestions from me that you are fielding. It's looking like all my mom's Bears/Baers and Goebels/Goebles are there and you have many- since I'm working these families presently it's possible I'll be tapping your shoulder again.
I'm trying to piece them together to see if I can figure out where great great grandma Matilda (nee Goebel) Bear came from. I think she had a dad and brother Solomon Goebel but can't prove it yet. But I do know Matilda Goebel married into the Bears.
Try not to laugh but... The son of my mom's cousin remembers his grandma taking him to West Park and telling him a statue there was related to his family. He remembers her saying Bear. There is a statue there of an Ignatz Gresser who went to DC at the outbreak of the Civil war to protect the Capitol. Such men were called First Defenders. I can find no link to Gresser in our clan, but the elder Solomon Goebel was also a First Defender. At this time I don't know if that's what the grandma meant when she told my relative about the statue and the Bears... OR, maybe there was a Bear statue now gone. I can't find it and the Parks Dept is a mess and has no clue. I found a guy who did a statue inventory in the 1990's who is trying to find his notes now. This is probably way more than you ever wanted to know, but it gives you a view of how much I'm working to piece these families together. So thank you for the folks you've added which are forming a foundation for more of the family.
Because Emily Hubbell Find A Grave Memorial# 111955738 is my great grandmother,
and because Marjorie Rhoads #111955745 is her daughter, and Luke Rhoads # 111955751 is Marjorie's husband, and they all lived together and are buried together, I was wondering if you could please transfer them to me?
