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: John Bolender
I've been out of state, but I do think my e-mail works now. If I'm too late, that's OK. Thanks for all you do. My message to you I believe was send June 11th of last year.

Mary (Benney) Rearick

I was looking at your memorials for David and Aminda (Johnson) Benney and was wondering if you had any information on what became of their daughter Mary and her child?

Mary became pregnant by Calvin Rearick and took him to court for 'bastardy'. The case was dropped when Calvin married her (I have a copy of the marriage certificate), but then she was back in court some months later accusing him of deserting her.

That is as far as I have documentation on the matter. Any help or leads you may have concerning Mary or her child would be greatly appreciated.

[Calvin had earlier gotten his cousin Emma pregnant. By 1900 Emma and Calvin were married (I think they were married, I can't find any record and they were both already Rearicks) and had three more children.]

This woman was my great-great grandmother. Her son, George Morrison was my great grandfather. Can't remember if I've corresponded with you before or not.

Haseplug/Hassenplug/ family update
Hope that you are doing well. I am still doing research to find out where the Anna Christena Shumaker goes, or in other words who she is related to. Her stone says she was married to a John Shumaker, but I can not find a John in 1850 census info. Also the Charley PY. Hasenpluck. I found a number of more ways they spelled your relatives names. Hapenplug and Hosencrook were among the ones I was amazed with. Someday we will get to the root of it, I am sure. :)

Marsteller family cemetery
Carl; Many years ago I traveled to the Berks Co historical society to try to locate the burial site for Peter Marsteller. The only info available was that he was buried at the Marsteller burying ground on the old Heimbach farm. I was pleased to see that the cemetery is now listed on Find A Grave and that you have created memorials for him and his wife.

Henry Jacob Rauch had sons Philip and Henry who married Eva and Rosina Marsteller, sisters of Peter. This may be why he referred to Peter as son -in-law. I will be sending you a SAC to update Henry's memorial. The Lahr noted in Henry's will is most likely a brother of his wife Magdelina Lahr.

Thank you for your work on Find A Grave. Regards... Don Short
