Bio and Links
I am using Find a Grave to memorialize my family members who have passed as well as search for my Pennsylvania German ancestors. I am researching primarily in Lancaster, Dauphin, Berks, Northumberland and Schuylkill counties. I only add memorials of those which I have photos to verify accuracy. Unfortunately for my research, I am in Germany and do not have the chance to visit the graves myself.

Family names I am researching include Freeman, Kray, Schlegel, Schwalm, Wentz, Coleman, Rose, Peifer, Diebert and Hebrank.

I am very interested in hearing from others who may have a shared history.

Hi Nay,
Stopped at Saint Anthony`s in Lancaster today. Added some photos to your Kray Family memorials (Ray, Dorothy, Charles B., Anne, & Charles F.) I hope that you like them, if not, I will remove at your request.
Best Wishes,

William W. Novick

I see you have William W. Novick listed as family of yours here. I am Emily Novick, his granddaughter and I am curious as to how you are related, mainly because I know almost nothing about the Novick side of the family!

Angelina Clark
I read your message on Find A Grave looking for information about Angelina Stiely Clark. She is not the daughter of the Rev. Stiely according to records I have found. I will be posting pics of Angelina and Henry Clark graves shortly, I will have to return to the cemetery to get pics of John and Sophia Clark grave due to the sun being in the wrong place when I was there. The information I have on the Rev. Stiely is probably accurate since he was somewhat of a celebrity in these parts in the 1800's. He was a reformist and established several churches in the area. He was also a stone cutter with a unique style and his stones can be found on many cemeterys in the area.

RE: Thank you!

I am very pleased that you are happy with the pictures I took of William and Alexandria Novick's gravestone at Hope Cemetery in Worcester, Mass. I am glad to have been able to do this for you.

Since you are managing the memorial, you might consider adjusting your grandmother's name on the page - from Alexandra to Alexandria, as shown on the stone.

Warm best wishes. John

RE: Photos for Johannes and Anna Elizabeth Meissenkopf
Natalie, I appreciate the explanation of the Meissenkopf memorial. So these is not like a columbarium, probably not creamated. When I saw the plaque, it made me wonder how it came about.

RE: Photos for Johannes and Anna Elizabeth Meissenkopf
Thank you, Natalie. I am sorry you are having computer problems. I did not notice at first, but I see what you mean. The picture is difficult to read. This is an interesting memorial for the 1700's. Is it inside the church? Or is it an outside wall erected on the property of the church. Do you think it is a columbarium, a memorial of ashes? Or do you think the bodies were interred in the ground, or in vaults of some kind.
