Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started researching my family history after my mother passed away in 2011. Fortunately for me she had everything written down so it gave me a good head start. My wife did not have much on her family so I started looking to see how much I could find on her family.
I found out early on the only way to do this was to walk the entire cemetery and try to link each person back. Doing it this way I was able to find relatives that I wouldn't have been able find otherwise. Family plots give a lot of clues about the family that are not obvious otherwise.
I am happy to add any family information since it makes it easier for others to find the memorial, any bio information should be written so it can be copied over. Please use the edit tab and the Suggest a correction link when sending information or requesting a transfer, it makes it easier and reduces the chance of an error. If you are looking for a response to any questions, please provide an email address.

Any gravestone pictures I've posted may be used for non-commercial use, family trees, Ancestry, etc. Credit should be noted with the picture.

Please do not post death certificates to my memorials, rather enter the transcribed information through the edit tab. If I wanted the death certificate on the memorial, I would have put it there myself.

I have come across a number of books from the Lutheran Church spanning about 50 years. These books have a number of obituaries and bio's that I am currently going through and posting so the information will not be lost. Those memorials can be found here.

Nagle Family
Hi Joe,

I see you've added a lot for the Allen Union Cemetery in Northamption. Do you have any information on the Nagle family? I've found death certificates that imply they're buried there, but after walking the Allen Union section, I didn't find them. I haven't walked the other sections, but since they weren't Ukrainian, I don't think they would be there.

Helen Nagle 1887 - 1910
Mamie Nagle 1892 - 1910
Mary (Snyder) Nagle 1864 - 1912
Robert R Nagle 1924 - 2012
Betty R Nagle 1926 - 2005

If you don't have any information, do you know who might? Thank you for your help.

Thanks so much for your edit (accepted), tribute, and time spent in communicating on this entry. I was able to expand upon the bio a bit and would likely not have done so without your involvement. Best regards.

Yes, I saw your notation. The ordination was as what and in what denomination? I'll further review our family records for this information but hoping you can shed light on the matter.

I noticed you added a gravestone photo to Robert Edinger's memorial above in Riegelsville Union Cemetery.Somehow his wife, Olevia's memorial was never created even though her name is on the gravestone. Could you possibly add the Edinger gravestone photo you took to her memorial that I have created, 183281660?

Thank You,

Hi Joe,
Just a quick thank you for your research. I have ancestors in the Strobel/Strobl family in Allentown, Pennsylvania area, and appreciate the photos for personal use :) Maybe one of these days I'll get out there on my own to do some research!

I'm grateful for the birth information. Are you related? If so, do you want me to transfer? I'm happy to do so, just send your Find A Grave# and his number

I am mostly a photographer of whole cemeteries.

Thank you very much for doing so. Many of our family photos were exposed to a rainstorm when moving. Thanks again!
