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 memorials from Salem German Reformed Cemetery, Philadelphia.

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, 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 Bristow 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.

Thank you
Just wanted to send a note of appreciation for all the work you've done at Union/West End, and for all the suggestions from me that you are fielding. It's looking like all my mom's Bears/Baers and Goebels/Goebles are there and you have many- since I'm working these families presently it's possible I'll be tapping your shoulder again.

I'm trying to piece them together to see if I can figure out where great great grandma Matilda (nee Goebel) Bear came from. I think she had a dad and brother Solomon Goebel but can't prove it yet. But I do know Matilda Goebel married into the Bears.

Try not to laugh but... The son of my mom's cousin remembers his grandma taking him to West Park and telling him a statue there was related to his family. He remembers her saying Bear. There is a statue there of an Ignatz Gresser who went to DC at the outbreak of the Civil war to protect the Capitol. Such men were called First Defenders. I can find no link to Gresser in our clan, but the elder Solomon Goebel was also a First Defender. At this time I don't know if that's what the grandma meant when she told my relative about the statue and the Bears... OR, maybe there was a Bear statue now gone. I can't find it and the Parks Dept is a mess and has no clue. I found a guy who did a statue inventory in the 1990's who is trying to find his notes now. This is probably way more than you ever wanted to know, but it gives you a view of how much I'm working to piece these families together. So thank you for the folks you've added which are forming a foundation for more of the family.

Find A Grave Memorial# 111955738

Because Emily Hubbell Find A Grave Memorial# 111955738 is my great grandmother,

and because Marjorie Rhoads #111955745 is her daughter, and Luke Rhoads # 111955751 is Marjorie's husband, and they all lived together and are buried together, I was wondering if you could please transfer them to me?

Thank you very much for your help,

Is there a way to link John Milton Rittenhouse to Pheb Klotz his sister. Also am struggling with finding info on their parents, Thomas and Emily. You have Emly as a Silvan and I had her as a Sibley.
Thanks Randee

RE: Errol Burr
Regrettably I never met any of them...not even Helen McAndrews. She married Bernard McAndrews and later died in 1991 in Dansville, NY

RE: Errol Burr
OH...I see. I didn't know Errol Burr had two graves for himself.

I also noticed how many wives he had.

The poor man!

My maternal grandfather was the same way....he had 5 wives before he died.

BTW..Catherine Burr was married to Ernest Rouff before she married Errol.

They had one child...Helen Rouff...she married James McAndrews....and as you saw, Helen was the signer of Errol's death certificate.

Finally, Ernest Rouff was forced to marry Catherine because he got her pregnant.

I do not know whose fault it was for that event.

Errol Burr
I'm guessing that "Dawn Cemetery" listed on the death certificate is the same as "Until The Day Dawn" Cemetery"

So...that if this is true...then...he is buried there...just no one finished the engraving on the headstone yet.
