Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please let me know if you would like me to transfer any of my memorials to your family that are not in my family. My grandson Owen and I really enjoy this time together. He especially likes the veteran areas and is really into Gettysburg and Lincoln. We found a relative that had brunch with Lincoln on the day of his address and then she sat on the platform steps to hear his speech.

We have taken many extra photos when looking for family so that someone else can use them. Please do not hesitate to ask for a transfer.

There are many headstones that are completely erased by time or very hard to read. I will list those as Unknown in the hope that maybe someone will recognize them. I will leave flowers so that they know they were not forgotten.

And for all the Findagrave members, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I was fortunate enough to have an encounter with my Dad who passed in 1995. While visiting our cemetery, I always stop and check the flowers I had put on the grave. Last time I was there, I was sitting in my car (hot outside) and a brief fragrance came past me. I recognized it immediately. It was the same way my Dad smelled after showering and shaving in the morning getting ready for the office. I have not smelled that pleasant fragrance since 1995.

The latest surprise I had was at Hampton Union cemetery in Hampton, PA. When I got home and loaded my photos on the computer, I had a picture I did not take. It was a complete figure of a person that was translucent. But the odd part was that I was alone that day. It could have been me but my arms are not long enough to take a full body picture and there was no background--no other stones, trees, grass or houses--just white.

Sultzbachs at Marietta Cemetery
Hi Sheila,
Cemetery list looks good. What I listed in the last message for the children of the 3 wives seems to be correct so far. There are quite a few more of Helena's children buried there at Marietta Cemetery, but some are not listed and may not be buried there. It's up to you if you want to link them to Henry & Helena. They are: George W. (b.c. 1836); Calvin A. (1838-1895); Samuel O. (b.c. 1841); Joseph Granville (8 Sep 1843-4 Aug 1909, m.1 Margaret A. Ferree, m.2 Ida E. Schock); Anthony H. (b.c. 1845); Emma (b.c. 1847, m. Cyrus Herr); Bayard T. (30 Jan 1849-7 Apr 1882); Howard A. (b.c. May 1853?-Oct ?).

I will put Helena's deathdate on my "to do" list for the Lanc. Co. Archives and see if I can find an exact date of her death in 1894.

RE: Sultzbach, Henry
I believe he did have three wives:
1) Married Susanna Leber in Mar 1819, at Christ Lutheran Church, York City. She died abt. 2 1/2 yrs. later. No known children.
2) Married Anna Maria Oberdorff aft Nov 1821. She died in 1833. Known children- Mary Ann (m. Barr Spangler); Henry L., Jr. (m. Mary A.); Susanna E. (unmarried).
3) Married Helena Oberdorff aft Sep 1833. Known children- Howard A.; Calvin A.; Joseph G.; Emma (m. Herr).
I'm going to check the PA Death Certificates of the children who lived past 1906. I'll let you know if I find anything else!

I would like you to add an obit to that memorial. How can I get it to you. I tried to send you an email but it was rejected. As I am nearing 80, I can not take over this memorial..

Thanks Sheila, I don't know if he's one of my Abbotts, but I hope I get to see this cemetery in person sometime! Meanwhile, thank you for caring for it with your time and effort.

Hi John Abbel should be John Abbet, if you look really closely at the stone the L is actually a T. I like the story about your Dad. Thanks! Meredith

Thank You
Unfortunately, I don't believe this is my relative, but enjoyed your story. Sometimes I do believe our forefathers do try and help us in whatever way they can. Although, I don't recommend trying to contact the dead...really not something to do!! Thanks again.

Edward L Cooper
In your recent posting for Ed you state you had no confirmation re his birth parents. I know their last name was Dellinger but don't know their first names. I think he was 11 or 12 when he was adopted.
I don't have a copy of his graduation photo -- in fact I don't think he had one taken. But he played baseball and basketball on the HS teams, and I will scan him in one of those photos to post. I was his classmate at EHS Class of '58.
