RE: Lieutenant Jacob Levan Jr.
Hi Clark,
Thank you for your courteous and informative reply. I have no issues with any of your statements which all seem to be very rational. I have no problem relocating Jacob to the cemetery that you suggest, if it is listed in findagrave. Do you know the findagrave title? However, it has been my experience as with many defunct cemeteries, tombstones and burial remains are relocated when the area is needed for other purposes. Unfortunately seldom documented. You would be amazed at the number of prominent pioneers/soldiers I have found buried at Charles Evans for which "no" record existed. From the Revolution period and beyond. Unless there is a record of such movement one has to assume the graves were simply "plowed" or built upon. So should we then list these defunct cemetery burials as unknown or continue to list them at the original burial. I don't know. I have seen it either and/or both. I am also a member of the Graveyard Preservation group. I am the sole caretaker for the Hechler/Esterly graveyard in Exeter township. I have the entire list of burials at the cemeteries we maintain. If you do not have those records I can share when requested.
Best regards, Neil Scheidt

RE: Lieutenant Jacob Levan Jr.
Hello Clark,
I know you are aware that I have many of the early generation pioneers in eastern Berks county and so I get a lot of requests for changes and corrections. You must also understand that I can not take every suggestion at face value. I am most agreeable to updates which improve the accuracy of all my memorials, but I must insist that suggestors provide a documented source for their suggestions. This is stated in my bio. I do not automatically assume any information from or Rootsweb to be accurate. Sometimes it is, and sometimes it's pure conjecture by unskilled researchers. I do give a lot of credence to wills and church records however. Also obituaries, family bibles, that sort of thing.
I will attach your suggestion to the appropriate memorial for the attention of other researchers but be aware that without a quoted source it's only your opinion.
I have included the info from the two burial cards you attached and request you remove them now. They are not the type permitted as photos by findagrave and I feel their presence detracts from the solemn appeal of the memorial page. In other word, too stark and overbearing.
Thanks for your consideration,

RE: Johannes Kercher
I don't think I have any of them. You would have to locate their sites and use the edit tab at top right under the name to suggest additional information to the site owner.
Best to give the Find A Grave Memorial #f at the bottom of the site for the father, mother and spouse.

RE: Johannes Kercher
Yours was first and should be linked to Martin if he is the father. The duplicate should be deleted.

Johannes Kercher
You suggest that Martin Kaercher (1718-1787) 47834846 is the father of Johannes Kercher. There are three Johannes Kercher in Bowers cemetery. The one I have listed 39667368 was born in 1808, died in 1812, so it is doubtful that Martin is the father since he was born 21 years after Martin's death.
The other two Johannes are duplicates both (1758-1824). Yours entered in 2008 25501152 and the duplicate entered in 2012 88925068. Perhaps your entry was the son of Martin.
Unfortunately there are many duplicates in Bowers cemetery. Hope this gets straightened out.
