Philip Botomer 1852 Lanc Rural Cem.
Hi Alice,
I'm following up on my previous writing to you (see below) regarding Philip Botimer whose memorial has a death year of 1852. This is not him nor is it his stone that has an attached photograph for the memorial.

The stone and date (Feb 1852) is for a daughter of Philip & Catherine. Her name is Caroline Rosina.

I can't put through an edit to change the name on the memorial from Philip to Caroline Rosina because everything attached to it (family links) will be incorrect. Please advise - also, the child is in Sec O Row 26 plot S. I have a very clear photo of it.

Lancaster Rural Cemetery has no record of Philip dying and being buried there whatsoever. Is it possible for you to please correct this information. Please advise - thank you.

Emery Botimer
Hello, I have what I think is a complete record of Bedford Cemetery burials taken from the township clerk's records and I do not find Emery. I believe that you have added Murray and that is the only other Botimer I have. Sorry. Joyce

Hello, just a little history on the cemetery. It was a private cemetery until about 1874 when it was turned over to the township. I have gone through the cemetery records from 1874 and listed everyone after that time. Was he cremated? I also walked cemetery and took pictures of all headstones I could read. Sorry I can't be of more help. I do not have him listed at all in the cemetery. Joyce

Hi Carole - The photograph attached to the memorial for Philip is not his gravestone. I'm transcribing row by row and this stone (the pic) says it is a daughter of Philip. I also have records of many of the early deaths. These records also indicates this is a child of Philip with the date 2/18/1852. I've photographed this row, but haven't transcribed the childs first name yet - it's 2 rows ahead of where I am at this point. It looks to me to read "Carolina Rosina". I'm not even finding a death record nor stone for Philip. I'm not sure how you want to handle this memorial - it is definitely not Philip. Please advise at your earliest convenience. Thank you! Kathi

Hi Alice; I have a few questions regarding the Bodamers/Botimers. I'm transcribing all the old stones in Lancaster Rural Cemetery and see that you have the memorial for Susannah with a maiden name of Kintz. I *think* her maiden name might be spelled Kientz as there are 12 Kientz burials in this cemetery. I was wondering if you can tell me where you obtained the Kintz spelling from? Thank you P.S. I'm assuming you know there are two memorials for Philip?
