Bio and Links
I first started taking pictures of graves of only my relatives. I would return home do a little more research and discover that I missed a few. So out I would go to take a few more photos and the same thing would occur again. After my 3rd trip to the cemetery I decided I would just photograph the whole cemetery.

I try and do a little research on each of the stones that I photograph, using various resources. I use other people's trees for clues then try and prove those clues with documental evidence such as obituaries, census data or other records. It's a very enjoyable experience.

At first I also created a tree on Ancestry and was uploading the tombstone photograph's there as well but it became too labor intensive so now I only upload my relatives there. If you are would like to use my photographs for your family or upload them else where please do so. A link back to find a grave along with credit would be greatly appreciated. If you wish to use my photographs in a for profit venture please obtain written permission to do so.

My primary areas of interest for my own family lines are the names: Reifinger, Latshaw, Stufflet/Stofflet, Schlegel, Bower, Eck, Mertz, Day, Christman, Bock, Bennicoff, and Gruber in Berks, Pennsylvania, USA; Haney, Van Buskirk, Heller, Mills/Mill, Starner, Weiss, Hofner/Hoffner, Fetherman, Coslar, Sandt, Price, Houser, Werkheiser, and Brong in Monroe, Pennsylvania, USA.

I'm willing to transfer out of guidelines. If you are interested in doing more work on any of mine feel free to ask. Just take good care of each individual out of respect for their memory. If it is a relative of mine it may involve a little more discussion.

Son and John Melchior
To whom may concern,

I made duplicate back in 2012 for Sarah Kresge Silfiece #101410793. I see your 66096186 has everything except did not add Sarah spouse and their son is missing. Mary Jane have brother James Monroe. You can add John Melchior # 66116734 Sarah spouse and their son: James Monroe # 10141121 on your Find A Grave # 66096186.

Thank You, after I see you made addition then I will delete my 101410793. Smile!

Miller family
sorry to be a bother again.
i just realized that i duplicated Layton, Sadie, Earl, Isabella and their baby daughter. I deleted them but added my photos to your memorials. Theya are buried in section K Lot 46. Dorothy Hallman and her husband Carl are in Row FK lot 3.
I created a memorial for Ruth Miller Keeney's husband. If you would like a transfer I will do that. He is also in section K lot 46.
I have attached the map of the cemetery to him. From there you can download the map.
(Gnaden Huetten cemetery vs Lehighton cemetery)
thank you for your time.

Dorothy Miller Hallman profiled Dorothy, Carl's wife. They are both listed under the wrong cemetery.

uld it be possible to merge the following, and/or move them to the Lehighton Cemetery. They are currently showing on the Gnaden Huetten Cemetery, which is the adjoining Cemetery to the south. Thank You! 85694538, 85694615, 85695255. They are my Grandparents and an Aunt and I would like to make all the relationships align with where they are actually buried.

Latshaw in Morris Cemetery
Hi Reif, How are you? I would like to know why you feel that the Latshaw's that you posted and requested a pic for are in Morris Cemetery. I have been trying to get these requests cleared up and there were no burials in the pre 1860's that are recorded. I don't want to try and locate stones that just aren't there. I have never seen ones earlier that 1860 and I go there a great deal. Thanks for any clarification. Mike
