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.

Christian Ruch/Rugh
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.

Harrison Evans
I have just recently found my link to the Evans family in you have any connections to the Evans family? I have been trying for years to find the parents/siblings of Monroe G Evans who died in Lehigh County PA 1911. Find A Grave#69108890 perhaps you could link him to his brother Harrison in some way? Or if you could transfer Harrison to me, I would appreciate that.
Thank you

Find A Grave Memorial# 39550650
Frederick Grube above memorial. You have an obit that doesn't (possibly) got to him. The ages you have on the obit at b. April 1829 and died 20 July 1906 (that is 77 years) the obit states he was 69. I do not believe they are the same person. Please clarify? Thank you. I am looking for the family member of Fredrick Grube and the obit matches the persons I am looking for but the age doesn't match.
