Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always been interested in tracing my family history, even as a young child. Now that my relatives are getting older I want to try to gather and preserve as much information as I can.

Some of the family surnames that I research are all the varients of Hoffert, Raifsnider, Reppert, Hartman, Furillo, Bowers, Wagner, Meyer, Merkey to name a few. I have helped many of my extended family and friends with their trees as well.

I am willing to manage any and all memorials for my family surnames (especially any varients of Raifsnider/Ralphsnider as I am working on all these families members in attempt to located my direct lineage). Feel free to transfer and try to post a message giving me a heads up.

I am in the Berks County Area. The Berks County Historical Society as a nice online database you can use to search most church and cemetery records. This site has helped me find maiden names, spouses, parents and burial sites I would not have known other wise. Another great source of information in Berks County online is this site from the Berks County Register of Wills.

RE: William Reifsnider # 44504400
I wish I could help you with #71555356 (John Raifsnyder) and could if he were a Civil War veteran, but it does not appear that he was. I have a John C. Reifsnider on file, but he is a different man.

Good luck.

Found this Elizabeth in Montgomery Co. PA, didn't know if it was his mother or not because the husband's name was different. Didn't know if you wanted to look into this or not.

RE: Reppert's
Thank You for your time. I am not familiar with the Kutztown cemeteries. Where is the one you are speaking of? I am from Benneville Reppert line, it was his daughter Marie Reppert that married Jacob Sweitzer of Mohntown, Pa.
We never knew where Benneville or his wife Annie Adams Reppert were buried and may be on Lot you took photos of as our records state buried in Kutztown.
Where is this cemetery? I found the info on Family Trees,,,,,Thanks so much!

Hi Vic I am so glad I bumped into you. I am related to the Reppert's you posted. In short I have been hunting my G-G-Grandfather Benneville Reppert for about 40 years. His Daughter Maria Reppert married Jacob Sweitzer and they are buried at Mohnton,Pa.
I did find a record on Ancestry. com where Benniville Reppert died in Reading,Pa. and was buried at Kutztown,Pa. I bet he is buried at the lot you posted, no stone as well. Maria, the daughter resided with her Mother, Anna Adams Reppert (Ben's wife) till Maria married Jacob Sweitzer. I am so glad to meet you, and want to friend you on here. Also send you my email
I reside in Ephrata,Pa. My father was from Berks County, I still have an Uncle and Aunt there. Hope ya get this and would love to email you! THANKS!
Going to visit the Kutztown Cemetery!
Harold Lash and Thanks again! Later,,,,

William Ward Timmons & Anna Marie Reifsnider
Thank you for adding information to Maj William Ward Timmons & Anna Marie Reifsnider's memorials. The email I received from Findagrave said that "Additions are from son and daughters death certificates". Do you remember what additions you made? I'd like to give you credit for the additions and also, if anyone ever has questions about the information, they will know to contact you. Would you like to manage these memorials? I am not related.

Annie & me (but mostly me)
RE: Username
Well, Annie is my nick-name for my sister. When I was doing volunteer pics, I usually went alone and would spend HOURS looking for a photo request. The first time she went with me she found 7 in 20 minutes. So I changed my screen name.
