Henry Heiser
I found on Ancestry Website a photo of a headstone with the caption indicating "Frieden's Church, New Ringgold. Can you confirm the headstone for Henry Heiser (On a hill) is there?

Born Mar 3, 1815 Died Jul 6, 1891 76y 3m 26d

If he is there, is his wife Sarah there as well.

If either or both are there, then a Find A Grave Memorial should be established.



ps I have no way of attaching the photo to this message board.

My wife Mary is also a 6th gen. grt. granddaughter of Christian Ohrendorf thru the Eakle line. Was Agnes his first wife? Was she the mother of Anna Margaretha who married Johann Harmon Eakle?

Plank Memorials in Nossville

Just got the message that edits have been done on Samuel B Plank and his wife, Margarer Elizabeth Jones Plank. Thank you so much for your kind attention. Good to see memorials developed and linked up.

Best, Barry

RE: Samuel Haines
We had a "warmer" day on Saturday, so I got out to fight off cabin fever, even though there is still snow on the ground here. At least it has melt around many of the stones. Yesterday wasn't as nice, but, much warmer today (upper 50's) & slowly melting it all away. Only 10 more days to the official start of Spring!

RE: John Hollenbach
My pleasure Joe. Unfortunately that cemetery is home to many of my ancestors from my father to my Great x3 grandfather. They rotate care takers frequently and they do not seem to care about the purpose of the place. The memorials only get in the way of mowing the grass. I went into the woods in the NW corner this week and photographed stones that were just thrown there to get them out of the way, many could have been repaired, some were on the request list. There are currently over 60 names requested in that cemetery, if lucky maybe 10 will be found. I photographed several hundred stones in that cemetery this week, many are worn and many in German. I am trying to decipher them and enhance them now to post them before they are gone forever.
