AND FINALLY, after 10 years, The Hannes Eby Death and Burial Record, translated by Carolyn Wenger and annotated by myself, No. 7 of Mennonite Sources and Documents (Lancaster, Pa.:, LMHS, 2010)

Currently, I am in the process of 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 and that each person is linked to his parents. If you can help by providing information, please contact me, and feel free to add personal photos that you may possess.

We were in Brown Cemetery yesterday and tried to find this stone for you. We covered the whole cemetery twice and didn't find it. If you have any more information that will help us we can try again for you. I have lots of family in Wms. co and have been going to cemeteries there and don't live far away, so it's no problem.

RE: Magdalena Schwartz
Bless you! I didn't have much hope of getting photos. A fragment is better than nothing.

Looks like you may be related to David Eby. I am happy to transfer his memorial to you if you'd like.

RE: Sam & Anna Sidle in West Lebanon
glad to hear that you found them, as I said the cemetery was a real mess!

RE: Ann Eby Sidle
Hi Denise,

no, we did not photograph the entire cemetery, the grass was so tall we could not get to most of the graves, we took what we could around the edges.

The information for Ann came from the cemetery book, so at sometime, someone was able to find the stone.

Is the cemetery mowed now? I was really sick to see the condition it was in last year.
