James, I think Margaretha Hoffman Wachter's parents were Michal Hoffman and Katherine Speicher Hoffman. Also but less common: Hoffmann and Hofman. While paging through postings found you're interested in Hoffman's from Indiana PA. I can't help there. The only sitings I have of Hoffman's are all in Allegheny County, Pittsburgh, PA. The Keeling's, however, seem to have migrated to Pittsburgh from Butler County, PA. Also: Keiling and Kelling.
Great great grandchild of Margaretha Hoffman 1841-1898.

James, forgot to mention:
#3 Maria "Mary" Wachter Keeling 1863-1920 was my great grandmother. She and John Francis Keeling 1860-1949 had 14 kids; 12 found.
Their 1st born, Andrew John Keeling 1885-1950 was my grandfather.

James,

By chance, does your Hoffman side trace back to Pittsburgh (after Germany)? 515 Glenora St, Pius St 1000 Bradford St, 1717 Edwards Alley and/or 17 Monastery Ave?

My great grandmother was Margaretha Hoffman b 21 Oct 1841 Bavaria; d 25 Aug 1898 Pittsburgh.

Margaretha and Andrew Wachter had at least 12 kids: 1) Christina Wachter Lovy b 1862 Germany, 2) unsure, 3) Maria "Mary" Wachter Keeling b 19 Apr 1863 Prussia; d 21 Aug 1920 Pittsburgh, 4) Maggie Wachter Lang b 18 Jul 1971 Pgh - LKA Ohio, 5) Margaret Wachter b Dec 1874 Pgh; d 18 Sep 1875 Pgh-Cholera, 6) Julia Wachter b 1876 Pgh; d 18 Jul 1877 Pgh-Meningitis, 7) unsure, 8) unsure, 9) Lev Wachter b Apr 1883 Pgh; d 9 Jul 1883 Pgh-Diarrhea, 10) John Andrew Wachter b 2 Apr 1885 Pgh; d unk, 11) Johanna Flora Wachter Prokich b 17 Jun 1888 Pgh; D Oct 1963 Pgh, 12) Alnoishes Wachter b 1896 Pgh; d 24 Mar 1896 Pgh-Marasmus

There is some connection to the Vogel's of Pittsburgh but will wait to hear from you. We're all busy with upcoming holidays. I'll wait PATIENTLY! maryreardon60@yahoo.com

THOMAS MEIGHAN GRAVE
JAMES I think you are wrong about the cemetery Meighan is buried in. I saw his grave at ST. Mary's in Pgh PA , in an area called Lawerenceville.This cemetery is right next to Alleghney [spelling wrong] Cemetery.I know there are so many St. Marys cemeterys in the country, it's hard to keep track. Write me back. Suzan

Anton & Karolina Vogel memorial
Hey!

Right next to Anton and Karolina's memorial is one for Clem A. Vogel. I cleaned the dried grass off it as well and took a photo. If this is a family member and you decide to set up a memorial page, let me know and I'll add the photo.

wed William J. Graff.He is great grandfather
of my nieces and nephew. I was doing the research for that branch of the family.
Thank you again for adding the photo

RE: Henry Hartdegen
That's a big cemetery! Also, it's usually locked, so I'll have to go at night. You got a plot number?

Best regards,
margaret
