Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am 50+ years old, and have lived in Gettysburg, PA most of my life. I enjoy computers, painting, and solving puzzles - one of my favorite puzzles is finding missing pieces of information in my genealogy research.

My direct family lines include: Schriver, Cool, Scott, Bream, Brewer, Adams, Dennis, Orndorff. I'm also maintaining a family tree for my husband's family that includes: Hess, Knox, McIntire, Miller, Rebert, McCleaf, Biesecker and Sanders.

In November 2012, I volunteered to be Registrar for the Gettysburg High School Alumni Association. Starting with the first graduates from the class of 1887, our membership has grown to over 18,700 alumni, including over 3,900 who have passed on. It is my goal to link them all together in a virtual cemetery and to honor each deceased alumni with a flower on Find A Grave. As of December 2016, I have flowered over 3,200 Alumni memorials.

Location Within The Cemetery Of A Grave Marker

Would you be able to tell me the location within Evergreen Cemetery of the grave marker for William H. Weikert and his wife Lucinda Weikert. I was just in the cemetery the other day looking for the grave site and could not find it.

Thank you for your help.

Was just on Mahlon´s memorial. What a nice gesture from his high school alumni association in Gettysburg.

Hi Karen,

I linked him with his parents for you. My pleasure.

Keep up the good work with the Gettysburg High School notations. This is valuable information, and I appreciate it.

It just dawned on me why I went to Corpus Christi Cemetery years ago. I was trying t make a connection of the Hess family buried here in Chester County at Greenmount Cemetery to the Hess that is buried at Corpus Christi.

My recollection is that Calvin Hess buried at Greenmount was married to Christine Byrne Hess. I believe the story was that Calvin was Hispanic and Christine's family was not very supportive. I have an old email address
of the person who asked me to help. My step-son lived in Chambersburg, and on one of my visits, I spend the time in Corpus Christi.

Take a look at the url above and see if any of that make sense in your Hess line. I believe he also said the surname was sometimes Huss.

Let me know how far off I am...... it's been at least 6 years since that visit.

Hi Karen,

I stopped by to get a photo of George & Lucille's headstone in the Gettysburg National Cemetery. I got the photo of Lucille's, but there is none there for George. I'm thinking he must be buried somewhere else. Lucille's is at J-60 in the Annex.
