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 franck seebold of new berlin thank you carl catherman!! i am distracted right now trying to adopt a new senior dog but when i come to my senses i will update my FRANCK files including the SEEBOLD family. thank you for all your hard work!!! much appreciated!!!
mary franck seebold of new berlin thank you for caring for the grave info of mary "pop" franck seebold. i am descended from her sister catherine franck who married jacob kepler hubler. i have a date of 9 may, 1817 for her birth; you have 9 may, 1818. i have no source for my date, so i am going with yours. i have photos of "aunt pop" around here somewhere and will post them when i get to it. thank you again for taking care of this data. i am disappointed not to find the graves for mary seebold's parents-- philip franck salome franck her parents, and her youngest sister, anna franck. they are all buried in the same cemetery and i have photos of their graves.
Ocker at Glendale Hello Carl - hope all is well. Sorry it took me all week to get to this, but I've corrected the bio info for David Ocker's wife Harriet. I have it correct in my Ocker file, and not sure why I switched her to second place. Seems those photos were the result of a request on FG, too. And I also have Harriet and the kids at Salem, from WAG. I did that cemetery in 2008, but quickly and didn't copy the older stones that should have been in WAG. I hope to finish Glendale this summer, which I started in 2008 - worst luck there. It seems to always rain when I get there! Thanks again - Steve
RE: Lydia Urschel I understand the caution on Jacob Weldy's headstone. What I can tell you is that in Zion Cemetery In lots 087-N, 087-NC, 087-SC are buried Jacob, William, and John. All of these lots were owned by John. What do they all have in common? They are all brothers, John being the oldest. In lot 076-C is Levi another brother and my line. They were sons of Joseph and Mary Shade Weldy buried at Hillgrove Cemetery in Montgomery County, Ohio. They can be found on the 1850 Census of Miami Township, Montgomery County ,Ohio. There was a Jacob before them born around 1812. The son of Christian Weldy and Susanna Grow Weldy, His birth was determined by the age stated on the guardianship records. He is buried in Ellerton Cemetery also of Montgomery County, Ohio. Again, I understand you caution. This is the best I have to offer at this time. Birth records are vary sparse at this time and deaths did not require records until the 1860's and even they are sparse.
