RE: Clarence C Kahle
I deleted the memorial. I could not add my photo to yours. Find A Grave has a limit of 5 photos per memorial and you already have that many. I did try to send my picture to you via email.

Hi Laura,
I'm hoping you can help me resolve a dilemma with Benjamin Buffington # 54965933, my 7th ggf. I am too applying for DAR and want to have the correct info. Would love to speak with you!

I found another child of George Neely Berlin and made the entry into Phipps cemetery. 135973375

Since you are maintaining the rest of the family I have made the transfer to you.

RE: Joseph Pawling

Yes - I believe this is one and the same. Joseph Pawling, Jr. is my 5th GG and my mother (Nancy Decker - 49995) is registered with DAR through that line. I can provide more detail if you have a personal email, but this is what I can tell you.

As the DAR record states, his second wife is Mary (Shannon)Pawling and she is buried with him @ Salem cemetery - also on Find A Grave. There really isn't much of a town in Salem, though there is a Salem in Westmoreland county also which may explain the confusion on county.

According to the "Snyder County Pioneers" he was registered in the 1781 - 1783 census for Philadelphia County, but purchased 300 acres in Snyder County 1794 (the same year his son Samuel - my 4th GG - was born in Salem) about 3 miles west of Selingsgrove. This is very near the cemetery where the 5th and 6th DAR generations are all buried.

My email is "" and my cell # is 585.267.9988

Thanks for your assistance in helping out with this request!

Best Regards,

Benjamin Buffington

Benjamin had moved to the Lykens Valley before 1814. I am in possession of a deed that is signed by Benjamin, and Martin Weaver, legal coucil (and his Captain during the Revolutionary War) in which he sells part of his farm to a Peter Balserman in 1787.
He even mentions in the deed, how the property he is selling, abuts his son George's farm.
Just thought you would like to know for your records.

Permission to use photo
I understand your reluctance to share your photos (etc.) in the cases you mention in your bio. I have an account with and see the truth of what you say. It makes it difficult for serious genealogy researchers, too. While not a professional, I do practice documentation procedures that adhere to ethical conduct. I always identify the owner of a document or photo that I use for my own personal research. I do believe it would be dishonest not to. I do not publish anything for profit. I am grateful to all the members of Find A Grave who have helped me in my journey. By giving credit to the photographer on Ancestry, that credit gets passed on to anyone who copies the photo from there on.

I would like to use your photo of St. Peters Lutheran and Reformed Cemetery in Rebersburg for my family tree on Ancestry. I like to attach all members of my family to the cemetery where they are buried as a way to organize my tree. There is another photo by another member of the cemetery, but I am asking you first because I like your photo best.

Please consider my request and let me know.

Thank you,

Berlins at Starr

I transfered Nancy and Paul Berlin to you. I also posted headstone pics taken this past weekend.

Paul's pic is not good. I may return to Cemetery again in a few weeks. If so I will try to get a better photo.

Thanks for the correction, Laura. I've updated her memorial. Since they are your direct line ancestors, would you like me to transfer?

RE: Sarah Buffington
I have transferred Sarah's memorial to your care, as requested. For what its worth - Sarah's obituary was sent to me in an email and I was asked to update her Find A Grave memorial, which I did. I did not know where she got it (and am now sorry that I did not ask). I do make a concerted effort to obtain permission for obituaries that I post to my memorials (see Christ Wilmer Himes' memorial #35140769). Sarah Buffington's is one I should have searched for online before adding, but obviously didn't. And for that, I do apologize.
Regards ~ Marilyn

Kathy Hoffman-Bressler
John Nicholas Hoffman, Sr.

Hi this is Kathy Hoffman-Bressler again. I sent you an edit last week regarding Transfer of John Nicholas to me, I am a direct line Hoffman descendent to John Nicholas - He is my 5th great grandfather. I plan on adding many more Hoffman memorials, histories, children and grandchildren.

I know that Find a Grave does not like to have duplicate memorials, so I would appreciate very much if you would transfer his memorial to me.

Thanks again,
