RE: Nantmeal Friends Burial Ground
There are very few Nantmeal MH records available online. Unless there is something local, I am afraid we have hit a dead end. John,

Ludwig, was my 6th great grandfather. My ancestors later changed the spelling of their name to Albright.

RE: Just a note
Johannes Albrecht and his wife, Anna Barbara Gossauer, arrived in Philadelphia from Rotterdam on September 18, 1732 with their five children: Matelina (Magdalena), (Anna)Barbara, Christiana (John Christian), Jacob, and Lodawick (Ludwig). Their ship was the Johnson Galley. The family settled in Lancaster County in an area, which is now in Berks County. Johannes and Anna Barbara were my 7th great grandparents and their son,

Nantmeal Friends Burial Ground
I see that there only 31 memorials in the Nantmeal Friends Burial Ground. For a cemetery that old there should be three times that number.
I know from my tree there should be several more Hawleys, Merediths, and Kirks. Even if they are just initials I may be able to make sense of them.
If there is anything I can do to aid your efforts,
please let me know. Thanks, John

RE: Just a note
I just sent you an invitation to my ancestry site. It is private. My earliest Albrecht ancestor on Find A Grave is Ludwig Albrecht, #5452136, who is my 6th great grandfather. I have no information on his wife, Anna Maria Keller. Some researchers list her parents as a Bucks County couple, but this is not correct. I have researched that family, who also had a daughter, Anna Maria. There are numerous records on her husband, children, etc.

I see I made a typo. I meant to say makes sense.

RE: From Sarah
Ludwig Albrecht's memorial number on Find A Grave is 5452136. He was a son of Johannes Albrecht and Anna Barbara Gossauer. At one point, there was a memorial for Johannes on F.A.G., but it was incorrect. The tombstone photo on the memorial was for an Amerian Revolution soldier by the same name. My ancestor, Johannes Albrecht, did not fight in the war as he died prior to the war. I just noticed that his wife's memorial is still on there, but I do not think it is correct. I do not think they were buried in Fritz Cemetery. If I recall correctly, that is where the Am. Rev. soldier may be buried. I hope this maks sense.

Hi Jean, Johannes Albrecht, his wife, and five children arrived in Philadelphia from Rotterdam on the "Johnson Galley" in 1732. They settled in Lancaster County in an area that later became a part of Berks County. Three of the children later moved to NC as adults with their families, including my ancestor, Lodawick (Ludwig).
