Bio and Links
Bio Photo My love of history began in grade school and has intensified over the years. I am an active member and volunteer at the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society. Several of my articles have been published in their "Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage" research magazine. I have also written several books telling the stories of some of my ancestors. Two of my books, "Annie's Day of Light" and "A Home for Sarah" are available from Masthof Press in Morgantown, Pa.

Five other books were published by Christian Light Publications. The most recent was "Aaron's Civil War," published in December 2011, which is available from Christian Light Publications, Harrisonburg, Va.

My most recent book is the history of Mid-Atlantic Mennonite Fellowship which was published in 2014 and is available from Little Mountain Printing, 234 E Rosebud Rd, Myerstown, PA 17067.

The main surnames I am researching are Burkholder, Stauffer, Good, and Powell (or Powl), plus many others on a lesser scale. My research is centered mainly in the Pennsylvania counties of Lancaster, Lebanon, and Berks. But I also have a reputation for not being able to travel anywhere without making at least one stop at a cemetery.

RE: Hyman
Thanks for your inquiry on John Jacob Hyman. I'm a member of and have a few sources to prove that John Hyman's parents are Margaret and Stephen. Most recently I found from:
Pennsylvania and New Jersey, Church and Town Records, 1708-1985 forJohn Jacob Hayman
page 147: Baptism of John Jacob Hayman, born Feb 27, baptized Nov 15, 1857. Parents: Hayman, Stephan & Margaret.

Thank you for linking their memorials.

Hi Romaine,

I'd like your permission to use your headstone photos in an Ancestry family tree. The original photographer is always given as a cited source.

Thanks so much,

Two Ednas?
Hi, Your request: Something doesn't seem right here. You have two Ednas as sisters born a year apart. My response: Could you look again? I see one Edna and one Edith. My mother-in-law and her older sister Edna. Or am I missing something?

Is his wife buried wtth him? I changed Henry burial and I believed do to George's death being so close with Henry's they were together. Also, I found will dates on Susanna 25 Nov 1822 LOA willabs13.txt...Peter 20 Sep 1784 willabs04.txt...Henry 17 Apr 1797 willabs07.txt all Berks Co. and this ties in with death dates. Also, I forgot to mention my mother is a Rodebaugh and we have a Daniels last name married a Stauffer in Medina co., Ohio.

RE: George Rathebach
Who do you show as George's parents and do you have any info on other Radebachs or like spellings: Rodebaugh, Radabaugh and Radebaugh. Their are 3 other Radebach's in Christ Little Tulpehocken Cemetery that died young with no family.

RE: George Rathebach
Romaine, I am with you on the stone dates, however, if you go to Strausstown Roots, PA on the internet and check out the following surname:

Salome Rathenbach (There are no Rathebach listed)and follow it to his father John and then his father is George. I believe the stone dated, I believe the spelling is an error. That happened in those days. Also do you have any Radebach in your files in this cemetery?

Thank you, Daryl

RE: Worst Cemetery
Your Welcome, not getting many Find A Grave photo messages at all, maybe the weather. Your memorial is ok, just we are suppose to alert dupies. I know they do ME, LOL!
to keep site from repeating. I am doing the Herschburger Cem in Lanc Co. now. I did the Landis Cemetery in Schaeffertown,Pa. and this guy put it on and called it a new name, now he says don't know how to take it off, Find A Grave does nothing. I suppose my list will be copied to his mistake. Now thats a dupie! LOL!
