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.

Thank you for Jacob's cemetery records. I replaced what I wrote in his memorial for yours.

|Barbara Brumbaugh Sherman||Johannes & Mary (Fackler) Brehm Headstones|
My name is Barbara Brumbaugh Sherman, and I am a 4 X great granddaughter of the above captioned Johannes & Mary Brehm. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to see these good quality photos of their headstones. I live in CA and on my last trip to PA went to the Dauphin Co Historical Society and was able to take cell phone copies of photocopies of their headstones, but the quality was not good. I have even contacted the homeowners whose property the Old Fackler Farm Cemetery is on (lot #96). I had planned to come to clean up the cemetery when I am in PA again in July, but it appears that someone has already done so. I will call Dr. Williams to thank him for that, and for whatever part you have had in this process, I thank you, sincerely. Since the photo that I have of the headstone of Johannes appears to be broken, I am wondering how you were able to make it look so restored? I'd love to converse with you regarding this cemetery. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you very much for submitting these photos!
Thank you so much! I love this picture!

Denise, I am so grateful for the photo recording you provided. We did written transcribing as we were able to read the stones in the 70's, but never took photos. And then, the stones were mostly gone. Do you have any idea when these photos were taken? Also, what was your source for the birth and death dates? There a few different sources that conflict. My cousin and I will be working specifically on birthdates in March. It seems odd that Christian would be a decade younger than his wife. Many things don't fit. But, possible. Thank you for all the work you have done, and in advance, for any information you can provide. Ann Swartz
