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 went back deleted the spouse and it looks like it somehow took one out. So I think we're good.

RE: Arbogast
Hi Carl - great to hear from you. And I think you got me! I'm pretty sure I've managed to combine two wives. The source for Margaret is Baltzer Mitterling's will at Lewiburg in 1844 - one of the children he mentions is Margaret Arbogast. I did quick abstracts of family names for Snyder Co back when I was in college, at the Union Co Court House. The 1850 census has his wife as Margaret, age 43, with many children. In 1860, his wife is Sophia, age 53, and the three children with them match the three youngest listed in 1850. (Both wives the same age - which leads to my mistake.) The clincher is that Margeret is probably the gal buired at St. John's, MPM listed in WAG, who I've never been able to place; she died in 1854. It all fits. First wife Margaret dies in 1854 and he remarries Sophia in 1856 as you say.
Philip's will mentions his wife Sophia, and children; but nothing specific to indicate Sophia wasn't their mother.
And all three (Philip, Margaret, Sophia) are buried at St. John's.
Think I have some cleaning up to do.

RE: Lott & Spencer
No problem, any other ones, I'll take care of.

Are they your kin? You want me to transfer any of them? They are not related to me.

Let me know
