|Bio and Links|
I live in Maryland but my heart and much of the family I am researching is in Pennsylvania. The majority of my family is of German origin, emigrating in the early to mid 1700s. On my father's side I have a particular interest in the following families: Stine/Stein, Rittenhouse, Smith, and Hauze. On my mother's side I am deeply vested in Virginia/West Virginia and the Hite and Manning families, as well as the Strouse family in Pennsylvania.|
I have more detailed copies of photos uploaded to this site and welcome requests. If the memorial I have uploaded is not related to my family, I would be pleased to turn over ownership to a family member.
Photos on Find a Grave should never be used without permission, and the source should always be credited.
My policy is that others may use the photos of MEMORIALS I have posted for personal use, but do require that the source of the photo(s) be stated as that both credits my work and also provides provenance for the photo. Simply reference that it is a photo posted on FAG by Ellen and give the date.
Please DO NOT use portraits unless you are immediately related.

Thanks for sponsoring their pages! That's a nice reward for the intense effort required to read Walbina's stone and untangle the two Henry Goods.
|Betty Frain||RE: Claude Manning - Union Leesburg|
I can have this marked as being a memorial as opposed to being a grave. Or I would be willing to transfer if you are related.
|Betty Frain||Claude Manning - Union Leesburg|
In answer to your question, yes I have seen the cemetery records for all the sites when I was writing the books on Union Cemetery. That is where I obtained the dates. I think there is also an obelisk or group stone for the children, but I have not idea why I do not have a photo. Maybe the info was only in the office records. Next time I am in Leesburg I will look again. I am not related to the Mannings.

Hi Ellen -
My direct ancestors at this cemetery are Philip Engle, Jr - Philip Engle Sr - Melchor Engle. I was at the cemetery 07/2011 to do some clearing, get pics/inscriptions and again a couple of weeks ago, 10/2014.
I've taken pictures of as many of the stones as possible. Other descendants cleared out the overgrowth from the Darke and Engle stones and I was able to get pics of those as well.
I've also transcribed as much as possible, including the poems with help from the 1930's transcriptions. Just wanted to let you know that I'll be sending thru updates, additons, corrections and pics in the upcoming weeks.
|Pat Bevier||Peter Strouse|
I am sorry that I can't help you more with Peter Strouse. My main interest is with my ancestors, the Beard family, in Augusta County Virginia. Peter married Catherine Beard July 28, 1824, near Middlebrook in Augusta Co. VA. Their son, Cyrus Franklin Strouse married another of my relatives, Mary E. Engleman Nov. 3, 1851, in Augusta Co, VA.
I also do not know where the middle name Bittle came from.
My information on Peter's date of birth and death came from a fellow researcher, Larry Palmer, who lived in the area. We corresponded years ago. I found that his information was always correct. I have asked for a picture of the tombstone and that may show the date of birth.
|Tim & Joyce Gibbs||RE: Uhler/Jerg Family|
Thank you for the Correction Info, I have Fixed Dorthea's Surname to Jerg, but not sure where the Information is for her Husband I was using a Dell Computer at that time and it Crashed but also may have gotten the Information from Mary M Uhler-Crosswhite my Wifes mother and also could have some of it in a folder I will ask my wife when she gets home if she knows where we may have put the Family History Work, we just Recently Moved to a New house and are slowly going through Boxes :D

|Wayne Raschdorf||Stine Surname|
I'm looking for a tie in with my Stine line that connects into PA and I believe it is Lebanon County as I remember my Grandmother Gertrude saying. My best guess is with Daniel Stine b. 15 May 1834.
Daniel and Ellen had two children: Fredrick and Henry (#102862675). In the 1870 Census Fredrick's birth is listed as Nebraska 1861. A Daniel Steine is listed with the second Dragoons in Fort Laramie, Nebraska territory in the 1860 Census age 25 and born in PA. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, Wayne
|Gary Strouse||Peter Strouse|
Do you know if Peter is the son of of Ludwig Strouse? I base my question on a text written by John Yerg between 1905 and 1915:
Text: One Branch of the Strouse Family, that of Grandfather Ludwig Strouse, came from Berks county to Lewis township, Northumberland county, in the thirties or fourties and settled Strousetown, named after him, and now called Schuyler. He was a blacksmith by trade and carried on the business, assisted by his sons, Adam and William Strouse. His son Peter Strouse, I did not know, as he left the neighborhood and settled in Schuylkill county. I had a visit from one of Peter's daughters, Hetty Yerger, in 1862, while her husband was in the Union army. Lewis Strouse will remember that.
Grandfather Strouse died about 1850, two years before I came to the neighborhood, but Grandmother Strouse I knew well. She died in 1859, if I remember rightly, and Rev. Albert preached the funeral sermon. We were all taken in sleds and sleighs from the old home. She died at William Strouse's , who inhereited the old homestead in return for keeping the old lady.
The Strouse Family consisted of six children, three boys and three girls- Adam, Peter, William, Hetty, Lucy and Catherine.

Hi,we are in Block 5 taking pictures,hopefully we in a few weeks will be in 6.
|Nancy Kane||ronemous engle cemetery|
I am an Engle descendent of Melchor, and was looking at your pictures of the Ronemous Engle cemetery. I recently visited what I thought was the Engle cemetery in Shendandoah Junction, Jefferson Co. W. Virginia where there is 3 white tall crosses in a corn field. This location does not look like the pictures you posted, where was I? Your pics have a wooded area and tombstones, that was what I was looking for and did not find. Can you help me? I will look forward to your response. Thanks in advance Nancy Kane, Smithshire, Il 61478
