Bio and Links
This is a great site for anyone doing research.

I have been doing genealogical research for 40 plus years. My wife and I have spent many hours walking cemeteries and visiting historical societies. A lot of the information from the cemeteries is our family however much of it is not. I am posting here in an effort to give back and share it with others in the hope it might help them as others have helped me.

I do not intentionally add duplicate memorials.

Before I add a memorial I search this site and the cemetery where I want to add the memorial. If the name does not come up in my initial search, then I may not delete my memorial as your memorial, even if it predates mine, was transferred from another place or kept hidden in a virtual cemetery and listed as an Unknown Burial Place by other contributors.

If you have additional information or questions on a memorial use the "Edit Tab" on the memorial.

Oops, sorry for the typo. I was doing these late in the evening and I guess I wasn't reading carefully..

RE: Memorial 167265661
I must have added a digit by mistake. The memorial I meant to refer you to is 16726566. It is a memorial for my great great aunt, Mary Dague. Not sure why Patti Myers is managing it.

Memorial 167265661
I am writing this note to ask for your permission to use a photo on find a grave that you created. I am constructing the family of my paternal great grandfather. The subject memorial is for his older sister. My problem is that the person who took over the memorial from you will not correct it. The memorial lists a link to incorrect parents. If you want to please check it, I believe you will agree that the death certificate I placed there is valid. I also added an 1860 Federal Census showing her as a member of my gg grandfather's family. I created my own memorial # 134701913 for my great great aunt, but I do not have a tombstone photo. I am working with find a grave to correct this inaccuracy, but they generally do not work quickly. The person managing your memorial has done the same thing numerous times in the Honeybrook area. I can provide a reference for this problem. It is a shame when people record information on the web and do not accept the inaccuracy. Hope you agree. My id number is 47514669

I think it likely this is the grave and tombstone of Christian, s/o Hans George (the Jr) and not the s/o his brother Michael.

The baptismal record of Christian s/o Michael & Francina (per Rev Stoever at Moselem)indicates b. date of 30 Dec 1748. History of Lehigh Co gives a b. date for Christian s/o George as 7 Jan 1748.

But having said that I have not been able to find further record of Christian s/o Michael. He doesn't show up as having been in Westmoreland Co with his parents and siblings. Perhaps he simply stayed behind in Eastern PA when they migrated into Western PA. If so "History of Lehigh Co" may have it wrong and this really is Michael's boy.

But I don't think so.
