John Barnhart
Matthew Irwin

Hi, My name is John Barnhart, originally from Montgomery, PA (parents out of centre co.). Anyway, I'm looking for info on Matthew Irwin, buried in Christ Lutheran Church cemetery. Do you have a picture of his headstone and/or that of his wife?

Thank you,

Thanks so much for uploading another picture of this headstone.

Is there any way I can get a newer version of this picture without the vegetation in front of it so I can see the dates?

Thank you so much for your time!

Photo added to Thomas Neville
Is it possible the photo of the tombstone you added to Thomas Neville #6155474 belongs to Thomas N Neville #6155450? Your photo shows a definite N for the middle name. Thomas N Neville is my Great Uncle. I know it does not show the dates of birth and death but they are Nov. 22, 1836 as his birth and June 12, 1875 as his date of death. He was killed by a falling tree. Thank you for your consideration in this matter and for the photo. Also thank you for all the work and photos you have taken and added. Elsie Neville Goodrich

I am working on a DAR application and in desperate need of a transcription of the Pine Street Cemetery. Since there is no stone for David, I am guessing that you might be able to point me in the right direction. Please help.

Leanne, when I read the lower left hand date on this mans' stone for whom you were the photographer, it doesn't look to me like what is popularly thought to be his date of birth. Can you clarify that date for me? I'm hoping it will be "crisper" for you. Thank you, Anne Wagner #48239969

Arthur Hepler
George Jacob Hepler 1744
Following is my take on George Jacob Hepler. I keep wondering if there were two Jacob Hepler,s because of the different story. I think that the other story mixes Jacob Hepler Jr. in with Jacob Hepler Sr. Jacob Hepler Jr's brother John's wife was Frederick Shoop's daughter, and would be more inclined to have dealings with Frederick Shoop

The Westmoreland account is based on 1798 direct tax records and 1800 census record. Also Jacob's son David of Westmoreland Co. was born in Nescopeck Twp. in 1789. His death certificate supported the year. and his parents were givin as Jacob and Elizabeth

My Story:

Jacob Hepler sailed with his parents (Casper & Susanna Schieble Hoeppler(Hepler) to America from Rotterdam, Holland. He arrived in Philadelphia, PA on Sept. 16, 1748 aboard the Ship ", PATIENCE" along with his father, mother, and younger brother Christopher. He grew up in Northampton Co. about 10 miles South of Allentown, PA Jacob was a veteran of the Revolutionary War. He was a private in the 4th Battalion, PA Militia under Colonel Seigfried at Bethlehem, PA, part of General Israel Putman's Brigade. The man who made famous the saying "Don't shoot till you see the whites of their eyes". After the war he sold his portion of the land inherited from his father to his brother. Jacob and Henry Hepler were included in a 1796 list of taxables in Nescopeck Township, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. About 1797 Jacob with his family moved to the Barren Run Area of South Huntingdon Twp., Westmoreland Co., PA The Direct Tax of 1798 records Jacob Hepler as living in South Huntingdon Twp., Westmoreland Co., PA At that time he was living on a place of 343 acres with a house (17X17) and barn (40X25). 202 acres of this land was owned by Samuel Rule and 141 acres was owned by Thomas Shields. In 1798 Jacob’s neighbors were Henry Hoffman and George Sherbondy. Henry Hoffman died in 1802. Henry Hoffman's Will specified that the sale of his farm was to be used to build a church. A few years later the First Brick Church in Western, PA was built on the Henry Hoffman land patent and dedicated in 1813. The present Hoffman Church, built in 1866 was located not far from this first brick church. Rules’s and Shield’s lands laid some what northeast and southeast of Hoffman’s. This information places our Jacob Hepler in 1798 residing within an eastern 1 mile radius of the present Hoffman Church, most likely along the Barren Run Road. The 1800 census showed Jacob (last name spelled Helper), his wife, three sons, and two daughters living in South Huntingdon Twp., Westmoreland Co., PA, probably at the same 1798 location. About 1802/03 Jacob left his four younger sons in Westmoreland Co. and removed to Sugar Creek Twp., Armstrong Co., PA where his older son Jacob Jr., had settled. Jacob remained in the Sugar Creek Twp. area of Armstrong Co., PA until his death in 1808. Jacob and Elizabeth are buried at Wilson Cemetery, Donegal Twp.. Butler Co., PA The Wilson Cemetery is in the woods behind the White Oak Cemetery which is in Fairview Twp., Butler Co., PA. The township lines cut through the area between the White Oak cemetery and the Wilson cemetery.

I am the Records Custodian for the Highland Cemetery in Lock Haven, PA. I have been updating
the records for the Rohe family after we reset a stone that had fallen over. We have seven Rohes listed, but you have fifteen buried in Highland. Could you give me a call to talk about this. I want to make sure our records are up-to-date and correct. Carol Pearsall 570-748-5593 or cell 570-295-9497

Any idea who IB(or JB) died 1804 could be? I'm guessing a Baker or Brickley.

Where oh where is the Cemetery???
Leanne:.... my daughter and I spent two days looking for the Washington Pyb Cemetery!! We thought we had found "Hippie" Road,...but it dead ended at the Washington Baptist Cemetery!!! In fact no one even knew that was a Hippie Road.
I feel that I have gone blind looking at the directions.
Since we are from Houston, chances of our returning could be remote,...BUT, we are curious as to where we went wrong in our quest.
We were looking for Sedam's, & Piatts..

Fabulous! you found it! do you believe this is an actual headstone or just a memorial stone? We believe that Peter's stone is a memorial and have records that he is buried in Globe Mill but no confirmation yet. Any thoughts?

Frederick Schenck
You have done so much work on this line and I am so grateful to have found the gravesite memorials. Thank you. I did find one problem on the narrative for Frederick Schenck, born 1771 and died 1847. I believe he was married to Susan Bechdel in 1799, not in 1779, as he would have been only 8 years old in 1779. His son, Frederick who married Mary L. Holter, was my grandfather's grandfather. My grandfather was Franklin E. Barker, born in 1885, son of Susan Schenck and D.S. Barker. We have, so far, not found any record of the death of Susan Schenck. She is not listed in the 1910 Census but her husand is shown as married to a different person. This tells me that she either died or was divorced from D.S. Barker between the birth of her son, my grandfather and 1889 when D. S. was married to his second wife. Do you have any information on her that might clarify this mystery.

Jacobs Cemetery
Leanne, I noticed that my ancestors buried in Jacobs Cemetery, Line Mountain, Northumberland do not show ANY grave markers or stones. Just the large main one is all I've ever seen for this cemetery. Can you tell me if there are individual stones there somewhere? many of my oldest relatives are buried there. Thanks.
