Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired health care professional who is interested in genealogy among other things. I grew up on Long Island, went to school in Texas and Georgia, lived and worked in North Carolina and have recently relocated to South Carolina. I enjoy hiking and am always pleased to come across old, out of the way, cemeteries. I've been trying to locate family graves in Pennsylvania and was using Find a Grave when it occured to me that I would enjoy helping others trying to find graves.

The Elizabeth you had the photo request for is on same memorial as Henry. Dates are a match. I didn't add my photo since I saw your's was way better than what I could get that day getting caught out in snow.
Frank Lentz marker is next to them closer to the lane in and is flat. I dumped my pic since the quality wasn't there figured you to add what you had instead. I'd have to go back at it to get another. Sorry for the mix up.

I left you a msg. on photo request explaining what I found and had. Not a problem finding them but right now we're at abt. 3 degrees (maybe, lol) w/a -20 or so windchill on a sunny day, so being on foot it will have to wait a bit if you have anything else. The only Elizabeth listed is Lentz and being the dates match assume it's one and the same. They were side by side. Feel free to let me know what you have or if I can answer anything else for you.

Thank you VERY MUCH for taking the photo of the headstone of Carrie and Dozier Smith. They are my husband's great aunt and uncle.

RE: Strauch
My research on the Heck family was purely collateral. My patron isn't related to the Heck or Strauch families. One of the Heck families and a few other surnames at St. Nicholas were from the same town (Durmersheim) as my patron's ancestor. They are what we call an immigrant cluster group. St. Nicholas has another cluster group from Leimen and a third from Börrstadt.
There were multiple Heck families at St. Nicholas. As far as Bertha I have no other documentation to suggest exactly where she was born, hence my suggestion of the obit or death certificate.
Who do you think you might be related to? Charles or Bertha? Since Charles was Lutheran and your family was Lutheran... Then again maybe they just ran a boarding house?
Happy Thanksgiving!!

RE: Strauch
Pam, I love you but you are starting to confuse me.
The fact that you are researching these people is just one of those coincidences.
Charles's children, Emma Pauline and Harry Strauch, were baptized Catholic.
Charles himself was Lutheran.
Have you requested their obits from the Osterhout?

RE: Strauch
I did the research for someone else. ;-)
Charles Strauch was born in Karlsruhe in Baden.
