Wilmer Helman
Hi Douglas,
I just created a memorial for Wilmer E. Helman, infant son of Donald and Florene Helman. I linked him to his parents. I added a photo of their stone today and saw he didn't yet have a memorial so I created one for him. If you want a transfer let me know. I'd be happy to do that.

Jacob Freet
Hi Doug,
Wow! I think you are definitely right! I keep going over the info and I remembered when I was on there were 2 census' for 1880. Jacob Freet was in Mt. Pleasant Township in Adams County. A month later it shows he was in Franklin County. That was right when I started doing my research and I just assumed he moved. I do see what you are saying though. The William Freet you linked to Jacob Freet, is that 100% correct. I guess I will unlink my William and any of the other children that are to my Jacob Freet. I have no idea now where he and his wife are buried. I'm seeing all the kids are Catholic so maybe I will check records at Conewago Chapel to see if they were buried there. I also saw that one of my Jacob's daughters said she was the daughter of the late Jacob Freet, near Irishtown which would prove you are right!! At one point they built their church or some room over top of some of the graves which are no longer marked. Thanks for showing me this!!
Take Care, Laura Hershey

RE: Daniel Hager
Got in touch with his Grandson. He says Daniel is buried in Spring Grove in Lemasters.

RE: Daniel Hager
I guess we do have the same info. Daniel's wife is buried at Spring Grove Cemetery in Lemasters. I didn't see it listed here, but a picture of her stone and it's location I found on Ancestry. She remarried a Statler, so she may be buried with him and not Daniel.

Daniel S Hager
Do you have any information on a Daniel Hager that died in a quarry in April of 1944? He lived in Antrim Twp. and had 9 children according to the two articles I've read. No other info. was given and can't find an obit. Is this William and Annie (Hartman) Hager's son? There were several Daniel Hager's and I can't figure it out. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

RE: name not correct

Please use the edit tab on whatever memorial you want corrections / additions made to. I have no clue whom you are talking about because you did not provide the information (that is provided with the edit tab).
Thank you

RE: Helmans
I am not at all familiar with a Francis.

My mother, Marion Jean Helman was born in Blairsville on 1914 and she died Dec 2012 at the age of 98. My Father lawrence elroy shearer was born in Derry PA in 1914 and died in June of 1995. You are correct in that my mom was married prior to my Dad to Edward Silvis born 1914 and they had two children Harry Paige Silvis born in 1938 and Judith Diane Silvis Yorkoski (Joe) born in 1936 died 2013.

The children from my parent's marriage are:
Pamela Jeanne Shearer Barber born 1946
Deborah Lynn Shearer Aures (Bob)born 1948
Susan Carol Shearer Sabey (Richard)born 1949
David Timothy Shearer born 1952
Wendy Marie Shearer Lojek born 1955

They also had another son Lawrence Kevin born 1950/1951 (I cant find my newspaper obit) and dies at the age of 8 months old.

RE: Helmans
My grandmother Lela Pearl Kunkle Helman had 2 sons- William Wesley Helman born in 1893 and John Edward Helman born 1902 and sisters Catherine E Helman born 1896, Mae Lela Helman Rager (William), Doris Helman Irwin (Harry) born 1909 died 1999, Audrey Helman Huey (Raymond) born 1899, Ethel F "Pat" Helman (never married) and my mother Marion Jean Helman Shearer (Lawrence E).

My grandmother's parents were Emanuel E Kunkle, born 1838 and died 1910 and Florinda "Flora" Altimus born 1835 and died 1881. Emanuel, my great grandfather, was married 2 other times- Sadie Bennett born 1845 and Anna M Wakefield born 1856 died 1897.

My great great grandfather was Johannes H Kunkle 1805-1894 and great great grandmother was Catherine Munshower 1807-1840. If my records are accurate, Johannes H was also married 2 other times, Susannah Good 1805-1899 and Susan Workinger. I can give you more information at another time.
