Gordon Rorebeck
Reading the memorial for Gordon, I see where your family were very close friends. I never knew Gordon, but somewhat related to him. His mother, was married to George Griffin, when he died in 1926, she met and married Furn Rorebeck.

My grandfather was a brother to George. If you get the chance, I would like for you to give his family my email address.

I also understand that Gordon visited Rorebeck cousins here in Trenton, MO. I am also related to them as their mother was a Griffin

RE: Jacob Chrisman
You welcome Beverly... I am related via the Overley's... his wife would be a 4x's aunt to me. As for the will, you can find old wills on a free sight. Here is the URL for the collection list... go to Kentucky Probate Records, from there choose which county you want to search.

RE: Elmer Ellsworth Harker
Perhaps it would nice to connect Elmer to his first wife Carrie M Putnam Booheister and her children to her also. Carrie is Memorial# 15619435.

You're welcome! I'm glad I was able to fill your request. The Oak Hill cemetery is a beautiful place, I have photographed a good deal of the monuments. Cheers! - Jeff

RE: Elmer Ellsworth Harker
Be my guest and use them. I just made a search at and found them. You can, too. Plus they have censuses for Iowa State that you can look at for free.

Verne Baker
Hi Beverly, Just a note to let you know that Verne Baker is not listed in any cemetery managed by Fairmount Memorial Association--they manage 6 here in town. For that reason, I am removing the photo request for him. Sue

RE: George Pherigo
Many old stones are difficult to read, but with the benefit of the sun light I can usually make out what the name is - it is much harder to take a photograph of one of those stones which as legible.

RE: Daniel Bieber
A rough translation:
Jacob Bieber and Ester (Lesher)had a son named Daniel born in the year 1799 the 20th day of November in the State of Pennsylvania and Oley Township. He was baptized on (?) May 1800.
The names at the bottom are probably the officiating minister and witnesses but I can't decipher them.

Notice the mother's maiden name ends with "i-n." This suffix was commonly added to a woman's name in this era to indicate female gender. I would think her first name would do that but that's how it was done at that time.

Since this is a pre-printed form which was just filled in, you may be able to find a book with an identical form which would give you an exact translation. I can read some German but not well enough to attempt a word-for-word translation.

I don't remember where I got this. I was just going through my files this morning, found it, and thought it might be helpful to someone. Glad to hear we scored! You are welcome to copy and circulate as you wish.
