Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Middletown, PA, with my wife and our Siberian Husky puppies who keeps us busy. In my spare time I enjoy watching the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pirates. I've been working on my family genealogy for the past 18+ years in the Lebanon, Lancaster, Berks and Dauphin County, Pa areas as well as in the Logan, Shelby, Union and Putnam County, Ohio area. Most of my entries in Findagrave are family members that I am researching or members of the 88th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment. Please send an email if you have any additions or corrections and I will make the necessary changes.

The surnames I am researching are: FIES/FEES, NORTON, PLANTZ/BLANTZ, BRIGHT/BRECHT, LEISS, EISENHAUER, BUCHER, STILES, AND SHIGLEY.

My wife's branches include:
BEARD/DRAYER/HAGER/PECK/ETTER/FETROW/YINGER/SNYDER/SHAFFER/SHELL AND MURRAY.

We are actively seeking descendants of the 88th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment, if you are a descendant please email me or visit our Descendants of the 88th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment website at the link below or find us on Facebook.

If you're researching any of these families, or the 88th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment feel free to contact me and maybe we can help each other out.

RE: Thank You! - Elizabeth Gehris Photo
Your Welcome. I checked the cemetery records and they do not have a burial for Matthias Gehris. I checked the Reading newspaper on April 1, 1890 and it said she was the widow of Matthias and died at the home of her son George, whom she is buried next to at Aulenbachs Cemetery.

RE: Herman Dively Photo
Thank you for letting me know that you appreciate the picture. I also took a picture of his wife's
tombstone. If you are interested in that one just let me know.
I enjoy doing this and live very near the I.O.O.F Cemetery in Berlin, PA. Also near the Lutheran Church Cemetery and the Reformed Church Cemetery in Berlin, PA.
Sincerely,
Barb Miller

I was able to pull up a burial card for a Daniel Eckert, son of "the late Marks B." in Aulenbach Cemetery, however the card states "possible burial: Lot 166 Section- OP." That happens to be the same lot as Marks B, so I will attempt to look on Sunday to see if I can find a marker (the cemetery is only a few blocks from my home). The burial card lists Daniel as being 48 when he died on November 8, 1880 from "convulsions of the brain." I am crossing my fingers that this is the man you are looking for and that he has a headstone. There are many in this cemetery who have no markers or they are so faded they are unreadable.

Hello, just a note that I entered another Boger grave into the system from Mount Peace in Philadelphia in case he's someone you're looking for. (I see the memorial you made to another Boger there.) Thanks!

Thomas Anderson (1840-1919)
Todd, You've posted a photo of an older Thomas ANDERSON, with woman and baby. Could you tell me if you know who they are? Are you related to this family? how? I've been in communication with a direct descendant who is very interested in the Civil War service of Thomas. Thanks, Dan Carrier, Dallas, TX

# 133163460 Joseph Bowker
Thank you Todd! Joseph is my Great great Grandfather. It is a long story but my mother's mother Anna Marion Brey-Bowker died at 39 y/o in 1933 1 1/2 mons after my mom , Anna Marion Bowker was born the 11 of 11 children. The state fostered out the 4 youngest children. My mom only saw her father, Charles W Bowker, also buried at Riverside, once and that was at his funeral. I found her Mom's and paternal Grandfather's grave just last month with the help of the historic society. The Bowkers records are few. No pictures exist. One reason is the incorrect spelling of their name.

Joseph has 3 memorials on Find a Grave. Memorial# 50439892 which has him named as Joseph Bouker, and Memorial# 54279394 has his name as Pvt. Joseph Booker. How can we combine them all and use yours which is the Correct Memorial for him? Can I contact the other posters or do you need to since it is your memorial. I want to do right for him. Thank You Thank You again. Carol Majewski
