Matilda R "Reiser" Hersh
Hi Tom,
Taking photos today at Saint Anthony`s. Added pics to Albert Reiser #60937963 & Mary P Reiser #60937978. I do not think that they were husband and wife (note age diff.). Thinking that this is Albert Jr. (Mary`s son). This Albert would have been only one year old at the time of Matilda R. Hersh`s birth #113783268. You may want to unlink this Albert as Matilda`s father. I`ll let you know if I find a Albert Sr. at Saint Anthony`s.
Best Wishes,

Mary Ressel Mem. # 119441831
Greetings Tom:
I am trying to straighten out a snag in my tree regarding Mary Ressel, Memorial # 119441831. Numerous other public trees have her parents as being Jacob Stehman and Maria (Huber) Stehman. There appears to be some contradictory birth and death dates in regards to Jacob but most show him to be born around 1773, making him only 4-5 years older than Mary, and so, not a likely candidate for being her father. He has a find a grave memorial (52267463) showing his birth in 1816, which if correct, makes it impossible for him to be Mary Ressel's father. Not sure how all those other trees got that info, but my question is: Do you have any information as to who her parents may be, or have any suggestion as to where I may find that info? This has been driving me nuts for about a week and I sure would appreciate any help you could provide. I believe the confusion arises from the fact that Jacob and Maria did indeed have a child named Catherine Maria Stehman, but the child died in 1853 at about 3 years old. The Mary Ressel I am inquiring about was married to Michael Ressel Sr., and is my 4th great grandmother. Thank you sir for your time.

RE: John Sharpless
Thank you very much for checking. I'll do more on my end to confirm he's the one I'm looking for. He is not a relative of mine but branch out from ones I was researching. The month and day are correct. Appreciate your time replying to me on this.

Emily Russel
Tom, Thank you so much for the transfer of Emily Russel's memorial. I am so glad to have found her, and I will get her connected up to her parents and siblings. Emily led an interesting life. She spent several years as a Christian missionary in China, at a time when that was quite a trip. She was evacuated from China, at a point where the government became unstable. Brave for a woman on her one, for that day and place. Thanks again, Tom, for allowing me to take her into my family group.

Thanks for replying. We are trying to sort out all the Henry Kunkle's in our line. Our dates are not matching up the way they should.

Can you tell me if Sarah Young Kunkle and Henry Kunkle are buried next to each other and appear to be husband and wife?
