RE: Stover plot
Hi Sandi,

If I remember right, one is a Jewish cemetery and one is a Christian cemetery. I think they are right next to each other and look like one big cemetery. Find A Grave lists them separately.

RE: Forest Hill Cemetery
Hi Sandi,

I live in CA now, but I go back to the area near Forest Hill a couple times a year. I will mark my calendar and try to get some photos when I'm back in December. I believe there are two cemeteries there named Forest Hills. Do you know which one your relatives are in? Mine are in the one named "Forest Hills Memorial Park". It's been many years since I've been there. Feel free to remind me come December, but I'll set a reminder for myself.

RE: John Shimer/Scheimer
Hi, I completely appreciate this dilemma. Although I am not related, this correction was sent to (mistakenly I think, they should have sent it to you) by a family member. In my own line there are several problematic surnames (Diehl/Dill/Theil/Teel, just one example). My solution has been to use the headstone spelling unless I have strong reason to believe that there was an error. Most of my PA Dutch ancestors eventually Americanized and standardized the German surnames, but most of them were also unable to read or write. I agree that Findagrave should have better variant options. I have to hope that by linking folks to parents, the spelling changes are less problematic.

RE: another Reynolds child
So sorry to take so long to reply. I haven't looked for messages here. Ha. Anyway thanks again. My sister and I need to go back sometime with a prod. We think there is another headstone there for a child named Edna Reynolds.
Thanks again for your help.

Eliza A Shimer date of death.
Hi Sandi: Date of birth and death corrected as requested. NJ records report death date as 19 Jan 1889, but 73 years 11 months from Feb of 1816 would be Jan of 1890, not 1889. Interesting, but not the first time I've seen a year difference. Neither Ancestry nor Familysearch provide images of original records, so we'll have to assume the stone is correct. I plan to re-photograph to get--one hopes--better clarity on the dates. Thanks for reporting the error. If you're related to the Shimers, I will be pleased to transfer to you.
Best Regards,
Steve Orso

Sandi,
Daniel Spangenberg (married to Sarah Shimer) is the grandson of Johannes Ernst Spangenberg-the Bible Artist. So that is your connection! Hope this helps you some.

Hi Sandi,

You are very welcome. I enjoy the challenge of solving these sorts of mysteries, and I am glad I could help.

Cordially,

RE: Edythe Benton
Hello Sandi,

I found Edythe Benton and Edith Benton both in the Social Security Death Index, so they are two different people. Edythe's birth date in the SSDI record approximately matches the age in her marriage record to Gilbert, so the Edith in TX is just a coincidence.

Glad to help.

Sincerely,

Chris

Edythe Benton
Hello Sandi,

I have provisionally created a memorial for Edythe at Knollwood based on her husband's burial there. I am checking a few more sources to verify this. At the latest, I can confirm with the cemetery when I visit NE Ohio in August.

Edythe Benton
Hello Sandi,

The Edith Benton you found in TX is not Gilbert's wife. Both Edith in TX and Edythe in OH died on the same day(!).

The Edith in TX was born in 1890 and Edythe (wife of Gilbert) was born in 1895. I am researching this further.

Sincerely,

Chris
