Bio Photo Born and raised in Warwick Township, Lancaster County, Pa., I now live in Hershey, Pa. I am interested in the Witwer, Leeking, and Eby families.

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.

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.
