I finished computerizing the records of Jerusalem Lutheran Church, Rothsville. To supplement those records, I am trying to make sure that everyone in the cemetery has a Findagrave Memorial, even those without a gravestone, and that each person is linked to his parents. If you can help by providing information, please contact me, and please add personal photos that you may possess.

Most of my memorials are connected to either the families of interest to me, The Hannes Eby Death and Burial Book, or Jerusalem Lutheran Cemetery in Rothsville. I also try to add some of Old Warwick Township's hidden and vulnerable family cemeteries. Before I add a memorial I usually research it extensively.

PLEASE send ideas and corrections, but I am reluctant to transfer any of the foregoing memorials.

However, whenever I visit a newer cemetery I take a few "serendipity" photos. These are gravestones that catch my eye for whatever reason. If you are related, please let me know, and I will transfer them.

And, since this is Find-a-GRAVE, I am loathe to link to "unknown" burials.

RE: Marie Witwer
I obviously made a typo, which is why one checks the info, which you did, of course. and I am glad you did. Connection should be Lee Earl Witwer #73707342 to Marie A. Witwer #74431616. In the 1940 census, Witwer is Wittmer.
