Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm Heather, a mother of three, and have been doing research since 2002. I also work full time, so if it takes me some time to respond to your edits/notes, I apologize.

The memorials I've created for Skippack Brethren Cemetery and Trinity Reformed Cemetery in Collegeville, PA were originally transcribed by Wilmer Reinford in 1961 and 1963.

I am reluctant to add memorials for individuals who died between 1985 and present day, out of respect for the family of the deceased. I have posted many in the past, but will not continue to do so unless they are my own family. If I have memorialized your loved one who has passed recently, please contact me, so I can transfer their memorial to you.

I have a passion for telling every story, whether it's about my own family or people unrelated to me. I see important stories in the birth, life, and death of every person; right down to every stillborn child, step-child, second (and third, and fourth) spouse and those who lived in the alms houses, asylums, and orphanages. Whether these people lived one minute, or a hundred years; left a large fortune, or were buried in a pauper's grave with no marker: their lives are a story to uncover.

These are the stories of true character in our personal histories, and are my favorite to discover.

Please stop by and visit my nephew, Azzy.

I'm primarily researching the following in Pennsylvania (among others):

Klotz family of Bucks, Northampton, and Philadelphia Counties

Rittenhouse family of Philadelphia

Renner, Moyer, Schall, and Stoudt families of Moore Township, Northampton County

Crist/Christ family of Montour and Bucks Counties

Long, Schuler/Schuyler, Strunk, and Musselman families of Bucks County

Lauer and Fenstermacher families of Lehigh and Northampton Counties

Kehs family of Berks, Montgomery, and Bucks Counties

Clemmer, Yerger, Buck, Bauer, and Leh families of Berks, Bucks, and Montgomery Counties

Boyer family of Northampton and Lower Towamensing, Weissport, Franklin, and Mahoning Township Carbon County.

Rinker, Detweiler, Rodenbach, and Schmidt families of Bucks County

Williams, Clemmer, Smith, Schmidt, Foster, and Winterling families of Philadelphia County

Everhart, Turner, Burnwood, and Mouse/Maus families of Montgomery County.

Clemmer family of Bally and Washington Township, Berks County

My New York research is primarily on:

Weber, Allen, Milliken/Mullikin and Kurtz families of Hornell, Steuben County

Burr, Crandall, and Cooper families of Angelica Village, Allegany County

Foster and Smith families of Duchess County

My Maryland research is on:

Winterling and Wilhelm families of Baltimore

Foster, Smith, and Bristow families of Cecil County

My Connecticut research is focused on:

Burr families of Hartford and Fairfield; Grinnell and Loomis families of Litchfield County; and the Ellsworth and Alvord families of Hartford.

My Rhode Island research is primarily on:

Cooper, Crandall, and Pendleton families of Washington County

My Delaware research is on:

Crist family of Kent County.

I am trying to find homes for all of my unrelated memorials. I would be happy to transfer any and all of your relative's memorials to you, as long as they aren't my kin.

We hope to get back to more places around here soon again as it started raining before we could complete this whole cemetery and have more to walk. How happy to have been able to visit family for you, tho...I do recall your user we've had a break in the snow and cold for a few days ~ :)

I feel akin to your bio statement about passion for people's life stories, no matter under what length and conditions. Last winter I tried to identify and connect those I could in a Potter's Field where only 60-some have markers out of over 800 who are there. Made a lot of headway, but still felt holes unfilled.

RE: Onnolee Stone
Hi, Heather ~ I know others and myself looked for her more than twice and were frustrated as it took very close looking to find what was left of her identification there; I would think that her husband Kenneth would be by her, but there was no evidence of a marker for him at all...yes, sad, but sure better than nothing, huh? Glad to have been able to at least find something for her and see she's in a well-cared-for place.

Elizabeth Ferguson/Jeanette Funk
Hi and Hello!

I ran across the picture of Elizabeth Ferguson Agar and Jeanette Agar Funk on your page. I am researching my best friend's line and this is her direct ancestor, her great great grandmother to be exact. I was wondering if you still had the picture, as I would love to give it to her as a surprise. I would love to hear from you either way as I see a strong family resemblance in my best friend and her gg aunt.

Thanks so much!
Looking forward to hearing from you!

RE: Lloyd Krupp Detweiler
Okay, I will forward your request to them. If any 1 of 5 of them wants to do that for you, I will definitely let you know. I will also let you know if none of them want to. Either way, you will be hearing back from me by tomorrow evening this time...
