Find A Grave Memorial# 93854938
I found this article in a paper when I was looking at my research.

Article from the Abilene Daily Reflector, Abilene, Kansas, 4 June 1888 reads...

The child of Mr. and Mrs. Fenstermacher was buried on Indian Hill, Saturday afternoon. The services were conducted by Rev. McWright.

I have the photos of the Fenstermacher Memorial at the St. John's Cemetery in Hamburg, Berks County, PA USA. I have a photo of the inscription as well. However, every time I try to upload them, they are upside down. I don't understand why, but if you want to contact me at I can forward them to you to upload.

Nettie Fenstermacher Fleming, #138138431
While working on the Flemings in the Shippensburg area, I came across your submission to findagrave for Nettie Fenstermacher Fleming, daughter of Cyrus Fenstermacher and Rebecca Shillito. I believe that she is the same person as Helen Nanette Fleming #138140790, also listed in the Spring Hill Cemetery records.
1. In the 1880 census, she is Helen N,Fenstermacher

2. In her marriage record to George A. Fleming, she is Nettie, but her age and parents are the same.

Race White
Birth Year (Estimated) 1855
Father's Name George Fleming
Mother's Name Margaret I. Fleming
Spouse's Name Nettie Sharick
Spouse's Gender Female
Spouse's Age 22
Spouse's Marital Status Widowed, Her husband died March 1888
Spouse's Race White

I only have a list of transcriptions of burials in the cemetery, no pictures of the stones, so it is difficult to determine the origin of the second entry. I have not found a death certificate for her.

Photo Request Mem # 170772028 Ida Jean Fenstermacher Johnson
I'm sorry to report no luck in getting a photo for you.

I DID find the stone for Joseph M Johnson, and there was a space next to him, but no marker of any kind for Ida.

I walked the entire cemetery as it isn't that large, thinking her marker may have been placed somewhere else, but didn't see one.

You may have luck in contacting the church office if you are family - the cemetery is well-maintained and there are recent interments, so I would assume they have good records.

Is it possible that she was laid to rest in another cemetery? Or perhaps the family has not purchased a stone for her - there are many reasons that happens, including everyone thinking that someone else will handle it.

Next to Charley's marker was Edna Mae 1913-1914, Valentine F 1872-1950, Martha Jane 1874-1960. There was also a Margaret L. and Frank all together. If you would like any of these pictures, just let me know.

Her tombstone clearly has the name Sara Anna and not Sarah Anna. There was no reason to reject my suggested correction.

BTW you're welcome.

Warren Fenstermacher Jr
Warren Fenstermacher Jr. Memorial# 104719442. I believe this child to be buried with his mother and sister Dolores, however the headstone says his name is Wilson unless there is another child? I will post the photo you can remove it if it is not the correct child.

Bateman B, Fenstermacher - 70289389
Will you please tell me what documentation shows that George & Elizabeth Fenstermacher are Bateman's parents? I know that on the Find A Grave Memorial it does state that on the inscription it says that they are his parents, but since there is no stone, what document or book says this? I am curious as to the dates, as Elizabeth would have been 63 years old when Bateman was born.
Since you are only maintaining the memorial, maybe the original creator would have this info if you don't and I can contact her.

Thank you!

RE: Cemetery Photos
You're very welcome!
How are you doing in your Fenstemacher, Fenstemaker, Fenstamaker, etc. spellings of the surname quest? There are so many to find and the branches must be taking you on an extensive journey!
Every time I see a related name, I make sure to take a photo.
Are you planning on publishing the Fenstemacher genealogy when you are finished?

Always glad to be of assistance with photos or research here in PA - Beth

Rickards Memorial Cemetery...Paxton
Dear Mr. Martin,
Apparently there are few burials in Rickards Memorial Cemetery. One of the people buried there is Sadie I. Piltz. I was wondering if you are related or knew her. I am related to her. Also, I have made a memorial for her. It has no photo but it is accurate.
Thank you,
