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.

I was up at SVC today and was only able to find a family headstone in the plot where it's recorded they are buried. I'll upload the photo to their pages tomorrow, but I wasn't sure if you'd feel that the request was filled, so feel free to remove it after if you want to.

You have some requests in Oak Lawn, if you help me help you I will get them done when we go there soon.

Please call the cemetery office & get each one's plot info...delete the request....add the plot info on each memorial page AND re-enter the request.

Without proper plot info on the request, I will not have the time to hunt for them.

Ruth Edna Aikey Boney Fenstermacher

Hi, While I have no problem changing the mother from Edna to Esther - because the Census does prove it - the rest of the note is confusing.

" Your note: The Edna Aikey who is buried in Hartleton Cemetery was the second wife of Lewis Calvin Aikey which is verified by her death certificate. There is also an error on her memorial because she is linked to Lewis Calvin Aikey as her father but he was her husband. I have already submitted an edit to get that corrected. I'm willing to send you an edit so you can link her to her correct parents."

There is a 69 year difference between the ages of Edna and Lewis. I would like a copy of the death certificate - and any proof of marriage because I can't find any.

Is there a Ruth Edna Aikey in a different cemetery that is causing the confusion?

Thanks JMartin
