I have changed the bios of Abraham and Herman to read that their entries in Dryville should be considered as cenotaphs. Can you please change your references to "the church" or "this church" to define which we are talking about? Was it St. Paul's that was razed, or Mertz?

RE: Abraham Ruppert
Yes I did read the obit. Mertz has a burial record for Abraham. Does the church at Lobachsville? As I said before I have an obit for my great-grandfather being buried in one cemetery and he is in another. I put more trust in a church cemetery burial record than a newspaper obit.

Abraham Ruppert

Spoke with Eleanor Dreibelbis and she said that the church obtained markers to replace missing veterans headstones of those listed in church records as interred in Dryville. Unless you found someting in St. Paul's records, it appears Abraham was buried with a lot of his family and Catherine was buried with a lot of her family.

BTW, Eleanor speaks highly of your efforts with the small family cemeteries in the area.

RE: Ruppert of Dryville?

Still plan to be at Dryville this Sunday. Hope to get there early enough to talk with someone at the church who knows about the old section. Will let you know what I find out. Were the Bergers from Lobachs and Rupperts from Dryville? We have a few husband/wife separations including my great-uncle Edward in Germania Cemetery (Galloway Twp, Atlantic Co.) with the Krieg family and great-aunt Elizabeth in East View Cemetery (Salem City, Salem Co.) with the Riley family.

In 2007 I entered what turned out to be Wilhelmina Hammes. My photo was done on my old camera and I couldn't pull up her name only the maiden name Berger. I was able to get her birth day (31). I have deleted my entry since yours is more complete and has a much better photo.
