Bio and Links
Bio Photo I developed taphophilia in Nov 2007. I'm adding what I can, photos and accurate transcriptions, because stones deteriorate and there's no better time than now.

On a philosophical note: I believe that an unmarried woman's surname should never be listed in the "maiden name" field, and a divorced woman who returned to her maiden name should also have that name as her surname.

Jacob Smolder #36232561
Hi Chris! Do you have any more information on Jacob Smolder? I have an ancestor, Nettie Bear (Beers) who married William Reisinger then Jacob Smolder; she died in Philadelphia but was buried in Baltimore. I'm wondering if this might be her Jacob? Thank you, Laurie

RE: Link not blue
Just read your messages, though a bit behind in responding as recovering from an injury and not able to tackle the removal of names to proper cemetery at this time. So, thought best to transfer all the names I created in this cemetery.
