Louisa Dill photo request
Hi Bert,

I checked the records at the library for Germantown Cemetery to try to locate where Louisa is buried. The record shows that the name is actually Louis A. Dill. The other names for that family plot are Louis (Father) and Lucy (Mother), Matilda, Harriet, and Louis A. There was also a Hannah Dill buried behind their family monument. I will post a photo of all of them. Hope this helps.

John Adam Battorf's wife Anna Elizabeth Zeller remarried
Recently found a part of an article on ancestry's public member tree that came from :
"Genealogies of Pennaylvania Families from the Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine, Volume III, by Stauber and Zerbe, page 452, that states that
Anna Catherine Zeller, born abt 1725 and died 1803, married John Adam Battorf of Tulpehocken abt 1746 and on Nov 12 1758, she married 2nd LEONARD SCHWARTZ of Bethel Township, Berks County Pa. 26 March 1759, Anna Catherine Zeller Battorf SCHWARTZ and her husband LEONHARD SCHWARTZ they came into the Berks County Orphan Court and petitioned for guardianship for the minor children. Martin Battorf and and George Zeller were appointed the children's guardians Leonard Schwartz had children with Anna Elizabeth, but no mention of his wife in his Will 26 Jan 1803, so she must have died before that.

Cathie St. John-Ritzen

Bert: The info you sent on your profile # was not valid: "My find a grave # 69669709"

So, we linked up to your profile and transferred
her to: Bert Waits (#46949179). Hope that was the correct number.

THANKS FOR ADOPTING HER! We are sure you will be a much better person to update her memorial than we would be--because we are not related.

Find A Grave Memorial# 120692591

Hi! I see that you have Cathie St. John-Ritzen's parents, and wondered if you would like us to transfer her to you so the family can be maintained together. You may be able to get a photograph.

Let us know!

BERT - THANK YOU "so much" for posting all the
information & tombstone picture of my g.g.g.g.
grandfather, Jacob Dunham 1757-1838 Rev. War
Soldier from New Jersey. Jacob's brother, Jehu
Dunham, also served in the Rev. War.
Jacob & Sarah did have 8 children. Jemima
Dunham married in 1819 to Peter Stults, so she
remained in N.J., not coming to Ohio.
My grandmother, Alneita Dunham, was a proud,
outstanding woman, a descendant of Hiram who
was a son of Jacob.

I am searching for the parents of Sarah Jane Jones born in 1810 in Knox County Tennesse I believe. Her first husband was also a cousin, his name is Thomas Calhoun Jones. Thomas was born in 1804 and died in 1833. Sarah Jane went on to marry Alfred Felix Huffman.

Sarah and Thomas had three boys. Hugh, Richard & William. These boys were likely raised by Jones Aunts or Uncles on Mom or Dads side. Do you think any of your Jones may be related. I was thinking maybe James Manning Jones could be the father of Sarah possibly....

August Wagener (husband of fannie clayman)
I am a decendent of August and Fannie Clayman Wagener. You mentioned a 1880 census with August Wagener listed as Augustus Wagener on George Issac Waits profile. Do you have a copy of that census? I can't find any information about August before 1884.

You're welcome and thanks for your response. I uploaded a photo to Adam's memorial; I didn't know that you had one. A flag holder is not on his plot. If you have his proof of service you can contact the Centre County VA to provide one.--Storres

Grave of James Murray

Do you think this is the same James Murray who enlisted, from Ebensburg, during the Mexican War? He was 42 years old in December 1846 and was a captain in Co. D, 2nd Regiment PA Volunteers. I live in Erie, PA and am working on a volume of grave locations for veterans of the Mexican War. I'd like to include James Murray, if he is the correct person, and if I can have your permission to use the picture you posted of his grave. I will cite you as the source.

RE: William ORR
LOL It was fast simply because we already had the photos online on our site and we always keep the "originals" in dated files. Makes it easy to get to them. You are always welcome, Bert. We enjoy helping. -- Leoa

RE: Dora Dall Price Cemetery
You're welcome, Bert. I wish there had been a gravestone for her. If you have corrections for her memorial just click on the edit tab on her memorial page and ask the person who added the memorial to make the necessary corrections. Of course, the obituary makes it pretty obvious that Dora is buried at Price.

Have a Merry Christmas!
