Bio and Links
I live in central Pennsylvania. I have been interested in genealogy for over 30 years. Most of my research is on the descendants of German immigrant J. Adam Bohlender but I have also served as the K/Catherman Reunion Association genealogist since 1999. Since retiring in 1994 I have traveled tens of thousands of miles to do original research in courthouses, cemeteries and libraries.
I have made every effort to be sure that the information I post is accurate but I'm not perfect so if you see something that you think might be incorrect please contact me. I will also be happy to provide sources for any information I have posted.
Note: Many of the births and deaths I have recorded are attributed to Snyder County, Pennsylvania. Researchers should be aware that Snyder County was not created until 1855. From 1813 through 1854 it was part of Union County. From 1772 through 1812 it was part of Northumberland County.

RE: Mary Dreisbach
I am not sure about Mary Driesbach. I am away from home and do not have all my data with me. I will not be back until September. I looked at my web page and for some reason unknown it does not have the data for the Driesbach family. I will try to remember to get back to you when I get home. If you like, you can email me at

RE: George Aubel
You are welcome. Storm clouds were rolling in and I was on a motorcycle, or I would have looked for more!

RE: Judson Bowersox Photo Request
Hi Carl,

Thanks for letting me know about Sarah marrying George after Judson's birth. So, I took out the link to Sarah Bowersox as Judson's mother. I'm assuming that G. F. Bowersox is George F. Bowersox there in Pleasant Valley so I left that link intact. If you come to think that is incorrect, please let me know.

Judson Bowersox Photo Request
Hi Carl,

I managed to find a marker for Judson and have added a photo. I couldn't stand the heat long enough for the sun to move into a good position so I dragged the marker over and propped it up. Still, the photo isn't great. I'll try to take a better one when the weather cools down.

Judson is buried next to a marker that says " Children of Benj. A. & Mary A. Eisenhauer", and there were two small markers on the ground along with Judson's. Those markers were embedded in the ground and I couldn't easily get them turned over. Judson's was just lying on the ground, thankfully.

After looking at Judson's marker, I think the mother is S. L. instead of S. E. so I linked Judson to Sarah Bowersox.

Have a good week.

Judson Bowersox Photo Request
Hi Carl,

I created the memorial for Judson Bowersox in Pleasant Valley Cemetery, Kalamazoo County, MI from an old transcript I found in the library. It was copied from the Kalamazoo Valley Geneological Society Newsletter Vol. 2, No. 3 by Joyce Northam.

Whether it's accurate, I don't know. I'll check for a marker and let you know. Hope to do it today before it gets too hot.

RE: Catharine Stout
I deleted my memorial and added the photograph to yours. You have the greater interest in the Bolenders and would be the better steward. Thanks, Mike

We found a stone buried in Zion Cemetery for Catharine Stout, wife of George Stout. Is this the Catharine Bolender Stout you are looking for?
