Bio and Links
Bio Photo My particular areas of interest are Berks, Montgomery, Schuylkill, Chester, Montour and Lehigh Counties in Pennsylvania. My strongest passion is to locate and honor all war veterans who sacrificed healthy lives and sometimes their adulthood. They must never be forgotten.
All of my entries to findagrave have been added with honor, one by one!

Many contributors are speculating on burial locations of old pioneer family members with no proof of burial. This may be encouraged by contributors who will not link to memorials listed as unknown cemetery. This practice is very deceiving for serious researchers who will be misguided in their research for accurate results. It also is misleading for those requesting gravesite photos.

Please consider that the information given in memorials is not only provided by the memorial manager but also by others through edit requests which cannot always be verified. These edit requests could also be added without the review of the memorial manager if not acknowledged in a given time period.

Please do not assume a middle name by suggesting a surname. I will not add without some official record such as obituary,death, burial,birth record,tombstone or individual's signature. Edit requests for maiden names are most welcome. I prefer to display names as they are most commonly perceived by skilled researchers and/or as they appear on the tombstone.

My thanks and devotion to you who are courteous, polite and appreciative. Those who are rude, demanding and condescending, are not in the best interests of findagrave principles.

ok, this one is a bit simpler to fix as they are both yours. I am pretty sure they are they same person.....Edmund Leroy Dry. His parents are Jeremiah S and Mary Frederick Dry. I have his date of birth listed as September 24, 1887, date of death as June 17, 1916 (as per the death certificate) and date of burial June 20, 1916 (as per cemetery records and death certificate). His wife's name was Alice but I have not yet discovered her maiden name, nor do I know where she is buried. He is located at Section E Lot 389-N Grave 1 and I do have a picture of the headstone(it reads Roy E Dry, btw). Once you figure out how you want to handle the two memorials let me know and I will happily upload the photo :-)

....I fear you are one day going to "groan" any time you see my name, lol. I found another duplicate I believe. Both of these memorials appear to be for the same person. One was created by you and one by Buddy Linderman a few months earlier.

Duplicate awareness ;-)
Helen A. (Heberling) Drey Memorial # 135647072 and also is yours and one is someone else's made a year later but theirs have photos of the plaque. Thought you might like to know about it so you could maybe contact them to decide how to proceed.....Also, while I have you here, lol....I was out at the Laureldale Cemetery today trying to locate some of the Drey/Dry family and their extended fams that are burried there. Do you have sections and /or plot numbers for anyone by chance? I like to include them in my research along with pictures of their headstones/plaques. I managed to find Helen, Walter and Marvin in Section G and Lester and Erma (Drey) Reiseg also in G but I couldn't find anyone else and the office wanted to charge me $3 for each name they had to look up.If not it's not a big deal. I just thought I would ask :-)

I would like to get a good copy of his picture as there is a good family resemblence . I will pay any expense involved. My e-mail address is

Levi Dipprey
Ok on the retaining the memorial of Jacob Dipprey. Levi is married to Lydia not Amanda. Amanda is his daughter. I have seen the death certificate and that is the most recent document I have that mentions Levi Dipprey. I need to find death certificate or a cemetery where he is buried.
Any info you find I want to have a copy, please.
Thanks Tom Dipprey.
