Thanks, Gary.
Whose gravestones are next to Daniel?

The photo needs to be removed from Israel Stambach born 1767. As far as I can tell there is no entry for the Israel Stambach that you have a picture of from 1827-1892. I believe you can create an entry but not sure how to do that.

Thanks for your help!

Thank you for responding. So your photo showing Israel Stambach born 1827 and died 1892 is attached to an Israel Stambach born 1767 and died 1832. Obviously the wrong photo for this person. I have tried to contact gravehunters who created it but they have their contact turned off.

The photo for Daniel is correct but there is no proof that Israel and Marie are actually Daniel's parents, correct? Are these graves right next to each other?

Photo - St. Peter's Reformed Cemetery
Hi Gary,

Thank you so much for all the work you do!

I am wondering whether the photo attached to Israel Stambach shows his death date as 1832 or 1892. Looking at the photo it looks like 1892. Can you clarify this? 52899100

Also do you have a photo of his wife, Maria? 52899110

And Daniel is listed as a son born in 1779 which would make the father 12 years old when had him? Please clarify. Thank you. 52899081

Henry Burns
Hi Gary: Thank you so very much for this photo. If this is the father of our known Henry Burns who married Mary Ann Emmerich, you have uncovered something that has never been done in over 100 years of family research. Henry Burns' (our known 4th g grandfather) was born in Northumberland, PA in 1790. His parents were killed by Indians when he was about 4 years old. We have never known who his parents were or details of the Indian attack. Henry was raised by a trapper. If you know of anyone who could provide additional info on the Burns family in Northumberland Co., I would love to contact them. Henry married Mary Ann Emmerich in Lancaster, PA. The Emmerich's were known as fur trappers/traders.
Thanks again !!
