RE: Elizabeth Kraus Haak, Find A Grave Memorial# 55082289
I found death for John Haak in First Reformed burials:
Haak, John, S. of Jacob, catarrh fever 12/19/1845 aged 68/2/3
So from this, he was son of a Jacob Haak.

BIO in History of Berks Co: p 624
John Haak, the grandfather of George E., was a farmer and large landowner in Alsace township, this county. He married Elizabeth Krause[sic KRAUSS], a native of Berks county, and they had a family of five children, namely: William, Isaac, John, Rebecca (Mrs. Addams) and Michael. They were Lutherans in religious faith, and in politics John Haak supported the Whig party, and later the Republican.

Thank you so much for this photograph. You may never know how much I appreciate it. This man is still a mystery. We don't know who his father or mother are. Still searching.

Thanks again.

Hi- I dug around a little on the "George" part. I'll have to dig around a little more, because I can't find my source, so in the meantime, I just went with "Johannes".

If you have ancestry.com the following has some interesting stories, but perhaps a mistake about Margaretha and Elizabeth.

Thanks. I linked Barbara to Jacob and Margaretha. How did you find the copies of the wills on familysearch? Any idea where Andreas and wife are buried ? Perhaps in Dryville, Rockland.

I'm looking at the Church Record of Bowers DeLong's and find that the name is spelled Haack. Are there any other names I should look for in the book?

RE: Need German Stone Translated
Hi, I will ask my cousin lives in Ontario, Canada and it was her friend who translated Johannes Hettler's marker. I see it is pretty hard to read. Maybe if there was more sunlight on it or sprayed with a little water it might have been clearer. It does look as though part of it can be read.
Keep your fingers crossed.

Johannes Hettler
Hi,
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.
