Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a mother of three, and have been doing research since 2002. I also work full time, so if it takes me some time to respond to your edits/notes, I apologize.

I am currently adding to memorials from Bethlehem's Nisky Hill Cemetery, Hellertown Union Cemetery, and Allentown's Fairview Cemetery.

The memorials I've created for Skippack Brethren Cemetery and Trinity Reformed Cemetery in Collegeville, PA were originally transcribed by Wilmer Reinford in 1961 and 1963.

I am reluctant to add memorials for individuals who died between 1985 and present day, out of respect for the family of the deceased. I have posted many in the past, but will not continue to do so unless they are my own family. If I have memorialized your loved one who has passed recently, please contact me, so I can transfer their memorial to you.

I have a passion for telling every story, whether it's about my own family, people I've never met, or people unrelated to me. I see important stories in the birth, life, and death of every person; right down to every stillborn child, step-child, second (and third, and fourth) spouse and those who lived in the alms houses, asylums, and orphanages. Whether these people lived one minute, or a hundred years; left a large fortune, or were buried in a pauper's grave with no marker: their lives have a story to tell.

These are the stories of true character in our personal histories, and are my favorite to uncover.

Please stop by and visit my nephew, Azzy.

I'm primarily researching the following in Pennsylvania:

Klotz family of Bucks, Lehigh, Northampton, and Philadelphia Counties

Rittenhouse family of Philadelphia and Montgomery Counties

Renner, Moyer, Schall, and Stoudt families of Moore Township, Northampton County

Crist family of Montour and Bucks Counties

Long, Schuler, Schuyler, Beidler, Strunk, and Musselman families of Bucks County

Lauer and Fenstermacher families of Lehigh and Northampton Counties

Kehs family of Berks, Montgomery, and Bucks Counties

Clemmer, Yerger, Buck, Bauer, and Leh families of Berks, Bucks, and Montgomery Counties

Boyer family of Northampton and Lower Towamensing, Weissport, Franklin, and Mahoning Township Carbon County.

Rinker, Detweiler, Rodenbach, and Schmidt families of Bucks County

Williams, Clemmer, Smith, Schmidt, Pape, Briscoe, Foster, and Winterling families of Philadelphia County

Everhart, Turner, Burnwood, and Mouse families of Montgomery County.

Kohl, Hartman, and Clemmer families of Bally and Washington Township, Berks County

My New York research is primarily on:

Weber, Allen, Milliken, and Kurtz families of Hornell, Steuben County

Burr, Crandall, and Cooper families of Angelica Village, Allegany County

Foster and Smith families of Duchess County

My Maryland research is on:

Winterling and Wilhelm families of Baltimore

Foster, Smith, Rutter, Boyce, and Briscoe families of Cecil County

My Connecticut research is focused on:

Burr families of Hartford and Fairfield; Grinnell, Hill, Nettleton, Barber, Pabodie, Parmelee, Balcomb, Jacobs, Lynzey, Gillette, and Loomis families of Litchfield County; and the Ellsworth, Alvord, Hoskins, Newton, Browne, Scott, Root, Nichols, Baysey, and Holcomb families of Hartford.

My Massachussetts research is on:

Holcomb, Strutt, Whatlock, Scott, Waller families of Essex County; Pabodie, Alden, Mullins, and Nettleton of Plymouth.

My Rhode Island research is primarily on:

Cooper, Crandall, and Pendleton families of Washington County

My Delaware research is on:

Crist family of Kent County

I am descended from Mayflower passengers William and Alice Mullins, John and Priscilla (Mullins) Alden, and Peter Browne.

I am trying to find homes for all of my unrelated memorials. I would be happy to transfer any and all of your relative's memorials to you, as long as they aren't my kin.

Rebecca Rittenhouse
Hi, Thanks for the update on Rebecca's maiden name. I am searching for the marriage of Peter L. Rittenhouse to Kate Donnelly, circa 1866/69. He died in Sept. 1870 and she then married my gr grandfather, Wm. Snider. Even top Rittenhouse researchers can find nothing of this marriage.

Thanks for the added info on Josiah Bougher. I've added your note and the birth and death places to his memorial. If he's related to you, I'll gladly transfer the memorial as he's rather distantly connected to my family.

RE: Evelyn Gernet
Thanks for the offer of management but I don't know the family. I just like to note those who are connected with the Bible Fellwoship Church.
