I had some help from a friend who translates German to English.

"Here is the writing on the headstone [first in German]

Hier ruhet
Johannes Hettler
Ist geboren den 1sten November AD 1762
Ist gestorben den 26sten November AD 1811

There is some lettering after 1811 but the grass covers it and the stone has also sunk into the ground.

Now what did the above say?

Here rests
Johannes Hettler
born on 1st November 1762
died on 26th November 1811"

CCGHS books are incorrect inmany cases. I use the cemetery records or the headstone when there is a conflict.

RE: Conrad Yohe
Thank you so much for all your help. I have looked here in Virginia where I live for Elisha Yohe for years. He died at in Hampton VA, Fort Monroe Hospital, at the very end of the civil war. I had no idea they could or would take his body back to PA. His brother and cousin Steven Yohe were also in the same unit in the civil war. His brother was my great great grandfather Jacob H Yohe and he married in 1871 here (Southampton County VA) and this Yohe line is still here. All of his other brothers and sisters stayed in Columbia CO PA. So thank you so much for finding him and sending the picture and all the infoon the stone. Now my heart can rest because I know his body is at home with his family and not just buried somewhere here in the south and unmarked. If you can every get a really good picture of both sides of the stone I would love to have a copy.
If you need anything down south let me know.

Thank you,
Susie Yohe Garrett

P.S. I will visit there someday if I can.

Sorry I meant Bluemousy not Jennifer. Don't know how that happened.

Thanks Jennifer for finding the headstones for William and Thomas Fisher. You must have done some digging because I know many of them are really grown over with grass!

Christian T Harman's parents
They are not in the Columbia County Genealogical Cemetery book or in the Church cemetery listing.
But that doesn't mean they are not buried there.
If you can't find a headstone, that doesn't mean they aren't buried there either.
Union Cemetery has a lot of broken and missing stones. I know that they have been working on repairing and resetting some of the stones.

Good luck!

Hi Bluemousey,

Thank you for your kind offer! A photo of Elizabeth Hosler's grave was posted on her memorial here: / As you mentioned, the writing is hard to read on the gravestone.

If your photo is clearer or shows a better angle than this one, then it would be great to have an additional photo.

In your photo, can you read the age at death that is listed on the stone?

Thank you!

Martha Hicks

RE: Henry and Elizabeth Yohe
Sorry the cemetery is Mifflinville, Columbia Co PA

#96702999 it says unknown Yohe and has a picture of a headstone where it says the father was Henry Yohe and mother was Elizabeth (spelled diff) I believe this to be the grave of my gggrandfather Elisha Yohe Sr or one of his siblings.

Henry and Elizabeth Yohe
There son was Elisha Yohe Sr. His brother and wife are buried there Stephen and Mary Fetterman Yohe. So that grave may be Elisha Yohe SR.

I don't have any connection to the Brislins. I was just adding info to find a grave from the cemetery records I saw at the library. :>

Your plans to visit Elizabeth Hosler's Grave at Harger's Cem.

I appreciate your letting me know that you are following up after hearing from Lois -- regarding the discussion she and I had about the dates on Elizabeth Hosler's grave at Harger's Cem. (There are two or three Elizabeth Hosler's, but she is the wife of Henry Hosler.)

As you probably know from Lois: A microfilmed grave inscription list for Harger's (page 16), gives Elizabeth's birth year as 1806 and death month/year as Dec. 1888 -- whereas, on page 19, it lists her birth year as 1805 and death month/year as Apr. 1885. One says she & Henry are in "Row 7" and the other page says they are in "Row 8." (These definitely refer to the same Elizabeth -- both list her birth date as May 18 and both list her next to husband Henry who is listed twice as well.) I am guessing that the dates on her gravestone are difficult to read. I am hoping to nail down the correct dates for Elizabeth, if possible. (She is a recently discovered & confirmed sister of my gr-gr-gr grandmother whose family tree I have gone to great lengths to piece together.

On behalf of all who are buried at Harger's and their descendants -- Thank you so much for your time and efforts attending to the cemetery grounds -- and I thank you for your willingness to help out with Elizabeth's dates!!

All the best to you!

Thank you so much for cleaning up some of the old stones that were almost completely buried. I took photos of them as they were...too hot and too many gnats to work too long that day. Bless you!

Harger's Cemetery photos
I saw your message to Jan and wanted to let you know I am uploading photos that I took in August.

Just in case you are looking for any stones in particular.

I've been taking photos at Harger's for the past 3 years...can't get them all done due to the heat and gnats!!!

Hope I can help you with your research.

Harger's Cemetery
Thanks so much for the information. From the photo, I thought it looked like you had dug around Catharine's. I really appreciate the extra effort it took to get that photo. As, an aside, Lucy A. was Catharine's granddaughter.

Every Sherman in Harger's is a family member, so I too have cause for concern. My hope is that the cemetery will carefully dig the stones. If they do not, I may have to drive 440 miles to do it myself. Otherwise the stones will be lost to posterity.

Thanks again,
