RE: Thanks
No problem, The headstone is very very worn. I could just barely see that the stones says Yost Cover. The engraving on the footstone was much more clear "Y.C.1821" The complete headstone reads "In Memory of, Yost Cover, who departed this life, June ? 1821, Aged 67 & ? days" I looked for him last year and told you I couldn't find him so I thought I'd go out and give it another look today and there he was. I still don't think I found Mary but I might have. To the left of Yost is a stone for a "Sarah Cover wife of George Whitmore" looks like she died in 1817. To her left is George Whitmore. You probably would know if maybe she is his daughter? Just a thought. To the right of Yost is a very old brown broken stump of a stone. I can't imagine it would be Mary since she died later on. I have photos that show the position of the Whitmore stones, Yost stone & the broken stone. My next thought, elsewhere in the cemetery, the only other Covers I found were infant John (son of John and Susannah) and Susannah. Now her husband, John Sr. is no where to be found but there is another large stone in the same style as Susannah's broken off and leaning up against the back of hers. It was too heavy to lean away to read. What I could see said "Mary M." so the line up would be "Mary M. ?" on the right, then Susannah, then baby John. Susannah died in 1857 while Mary Cover died in, what, 1845ish? Could this "Mary M.?" be her? Next to Susannah who is perhaps her daughter in law? I have pictures of all of this and the stone behind the other where you can see "Mary M" Let me know what you think. I don't know who is related to who.
Thanks Amy

Aged 76 years

I hope the message I sent before this one helps you with your research and gives you some solid answers. I'm sure you could contact the person who sent it to me for more information.

And I will get the photos for you by next weekend and send the to your email. If you want (I will just do this) I can send the originals to you so you can have good photos for you family genealogy book.

Take care,

Message Re: Cover
This was sent to me regarding the Cover family. I wanted to pass it on to you.

"Daniel,Eve,John, Catherine Cover
As to the Kober/Cover's buried at Krieders/St/ Benjamins, Johan Daniel Kober and his wife Maria Eva Eberhard were founding members of the church that sat inside of this cemetery.They moved here and bought their 75 acres in 1759. The church was established in 1761-1762. Their son John Cover and wife Catherine Cover are the only ones of their children buried in this cemetery.In the 1950's, Wm and Lillian Cover of PA went here searching and found two small broken stones (no names) in between John and Catherine with deep depressions in the gound (as it still is now).In 1992 when I was there, they were long gone. After talking with many other Cover researchers I do not believe that Eve is buried inside the above ground lawn crypt to the east of the original church location. There are NO church cemetery records as the caretakers house burned down so we have no proof Dan and Eve are buried there , only can guess why from what I just wrote. Catherine died in 1809 and her stone is written in German and lists the last name Kober, John her husband died in 1832 and his is written in English, Cover.

I went to Kriders today and got the photos of John and Catherine Cover/Kober and then Betty and Paul Cover. There is also a very large crypt with the Cover name on it. It is like a small house as a matter of fact. I wanted to pass that on to you. I don't have the list of who is inside it, but I do believe it is more current burials of the Cover family here in Westminster, MD. If you would like a photo of it, I would be glad to get it to you.

Now, you have a photo request for Eve Eberhard Cover from Kriders Cemetery. She and her husband Daniel are not to be found anywhere in that cemetery. The earliest "Cover" would be John and Catherine at Kriders.

I will see about heading up to Haughs Church Cemetery next weekend to get the other photos for you.

Take care,

Linda Conroy

RE: Eleazer Ewer
I took more pictures, I can send them to you. They are 10.2 megapixels so maybe you can see them better than the one posted.

It looks to me like it says
(hard to read, maybe.. Daughter of?
Died Oct. 15 1861
Aged ? yrs ? days
Died Apr. 20 1875
AGED 86 yrs & 8 days
I hope this helps. I tried spraying it with water, but it didn't help. Also there is a piece of a stone leaning on the other side. I have a photo of it.
