Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Middletown, PA, with my wife and our Siberian Husky puppies who keeps us busy. In my spare time I enjoy watching the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pirates. I've been working on my family genealogy for the past 18+ years in the Lebanon, Lancaster, Berks and Dauphin County, Pa areas as well as in the Logan, Shelby, Union and Putnam County, Ohio area. Most of my entries in Findagrave are family members that I am researching or members of the 88th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment. Please send an email if you have any additions or corrections and I will make the necessary changes.


My wife's branches include:

We are actively seeking descendants of the 88th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment, if you are a descendant please email me or visit our Descendants of the 88th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment website at the link below or find us on Facebook.

If you're researching any of these families, or the 88th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Regiment feel free to contact me and maybe we can help each other out.

RE: Pvt John Heffner
Sorry I should have said 88 rather than 78.

RE: Pvt John Heffner
You should be able to find some of them online at and also look at all the Civil War records that are listed as free. At least for now that includes all the widow's pensions they have so far which really only covers veterans who died between 1861 and 1866 (fold3 has only done a fraction of the Civil War pensions).

You have to register with but you shouldn't have to sign up or pay anything just to do that.

The easiest way to find records on the 78th PA people is to type 78 under keyword and Pennsylvania under place. The widow's pensions are by unit so when you find one you can find more.

RE: Pvt John Heffner
Thanks for the offer but he's not an ancestor and also thanks for making the corrections. You would be surprised how some people aren't willing at all to do either things.

I've been going through the Civil War widow's pensions on and looking for info on veterans and their families and posting it where I can.

RE: Thank You! - Elizabeth Gehris Photo
Your Welcome. I checked the cemetery records and they do not have a burial for Matthias Gehris. I checked the Reading newspaper on April 1, 1890 and it said she was the widow of Matthias and died at the home of her son George, whom she is buried next to at Aulenbachs Cemetery.

RE: Herman Dively Photo
Thank you for letting me know that you appreciate the picture. I also took a picture of his wife's
tombstone. If you are interested in that one just let me know.
I enjoy doing this and live very near the I.O.O.F Cemetery in Berlin, PA. Also near the Lutheran Church Cemetery and the Reformed Church Cemetery in Berlin, PA.
