Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm Heather, a mother of three, and have been doing research since 2002. I also work full time, so if it takes me some time to respond to your edits/notes, I apologize.

I am currently adding memorials from Salem German Reformed Cemetery, Philadelphia.

The memorials I've created for Skippack Brethren Cemetery and Trinity Reformed Cemetery in Collegeville, PA were originally transcribed by Wilmer Reinford in 1961 and 1963.

I am reluctant to add memorials for individuals who died between 1985 and present day, out of respect for the family of the deceased. I have posted many in the past, but will not continue to do so unless they are my own family. If I have memorialized your loved one who has passed recently, please contact me, so I can transfer their memorial to you.

I have a passion for telling every story, whether it's about my own family or people unrelated to me. I see important stories in the birth, life, and death of every person; right down to every stillborn child, step-child, second (and third, and fourth) spouse and those who lived in the alms houses, asylums, and orphanages. Whether these people lived one minute, or a hundred years; left a large fortune, or were buried in a pauper's grave with no marker: their lives are a story to uncover.

These are the stories of true character in our personal histories, and are my favorite to discover.

Please stop by and visit my nephew, Azzy.


I'm primarily researching the following in Pennsylvania (among others):

Klotz family of Bucks, Northampton, and Philadelphia Counties

Rittenhouse family of Philadelphia

Renner, Moyer, Schall, and Stoudt families of Moore Township, Northampton County

Crist/Christ family of Montour and Bucks Counties

Long, Schuler/Schuyler, Strunk, and Musselman families of Bucks County

Lauer and Fenstermacher families of Lehigh and Northampton Counties

Kehs family of Berks, Montgomery, and Bucks Counties

Clemmer, Yerger, Buck, Bauer, and Leh families of Berks, Bucks, and Montgomery Counties

Boyer family of Northampton and Lower Towamensing, Weissport, Franklin, and Mahoning Township Carbon County.

Rinker, Detweiler, Rodenbach, and Schmidt families of Bucks County

Williams, Clemmer, Smith, Schmidt, Foster, and Winterling families of Philadelphia County

Everhart, Turner, Burnwood, and Mouse/Maus families of Montgomery County.

Clemmer family of Bally and Washington Township, Berks County

My New York research is primarily on:

Weber, Allen, Milliken/Mullikin and Kurtz families of Hornell, Steuben County

Burr, Crandall, and Cooper families of Angelica Village, Allegany County

Foster and Smith families of Duchess County

My Maryland research is on:

Winterling and Wilhelm families of Baltimore

Foster, Smith, and Bristow families of Cecil County

My Connecticut research is focused on:

Burr families of Hartford and Fairfield; Grinnell and Loomis families of Litchfield County; and the Ellsworth and Alvord families of Hartford.


My Rhode Island research is primarily on:

Cooper, Crandall, and Pendleton families of Washington County

My Delaware research is on:

Crist family of Kent County.

I am trying to find homes for all of my unrelated memorials. I would be happy to transfer any and all of your relative's memorials to you, as long as they aren't my kin.

Hi,
We have spoke before. If I recall you are descended from Allen Weber 1900-1946. His brother Walter is great grandfather to me. Anyway I have a photo album dating from about 1860 through 1900 with photographs which had belonged to Frances Mullikin 1845- and her son Scott Allen. I also have photographs of Allen Weber and his brother Walter and others which may be of interest. Let me know if you are interested and I can email some of them to you.

Thank you
Just wanted to send a note of appreciation for all the work you've done at Union/West End, and for all the suggestions from me that you are fielding. It's looking like all my mom's Bears/Baers and Goebels/Goebles are there and you have many- since I'm working these families presently it's possible I'll be tapping your shoulder again.

I'm trying to piece them together to see if I can figure out where great great grandma Matilda (nee Goebel) Bear came from. I think she had a dad and brother Solomon Goebel but can't prove it yet. But I do know Matilda Goebel married into the Bears.

Try not to laugh but... The son of my mom's cousin remembers his grandma taking him to West Park and telling him a statue there was related to his family. He remembers her saying Bear. There is a statue there of an Ignatz Gresser who went to DC at the outbreak of the Civil war to protect the Capitol. Such men were called First Defenders. I can find no link to Gresser in our clan, but the elder Solomon Goebel was also a First Defender. At this time I don't know if that's what the grandma meant when she told my relative about the statue and the Bears... OR, maybe there was a Bear statue now gone. I can't find it and the Parks Dept is a mess and has no clue. I found a guy who did a statue inventory in the 1990's who is trying to find his notes now. This is probably way more than you ever wanted to know, but it gives you a view of how much I'm working to piece these families together. So thank you for the folks you've added which are forming a foundation for more of the family.
