finding out where jacob neveling buried
My 5th great grandpa died in rev war. 1777, some say germantown others brandwine. Called west laurel cemetery, asked names of 2 neveling there. One JWNeveling, other is Jacob. Mine would be the Jacob, it looks like on find a grave, the two names are same person. But different dates. I had one time viewed a post by Neil, he had mine listed as Jacob, and son John Adam Nevling. Then he removed it. I asked why, he replied he had 2 of same . They were not. Does anyone know of jacob burial , if in this cemetery. Thanks karen nevling bloom

Lillian Godfrey Geisinger
I just put an edit in for Lillian. Her maiden name was Hess per her obituary. Thank you for all the work you've done on this site. It's helped me connect a lot of dots in the family genealogy.

You have nee Lengel on this memorial. I have a Levi Dipprey on 1850 m to Lydia Langel. I was wondering where you obtain the information on the nee: Lengel. I looked a lot of times at this memorial and did not see the note on the previous name was Lengel....this might be a breakthrough on my research for her.

Charles & Emma Schaeffer
Hello, would you kindly consider transferring Charles & Emma Schaeffer to my control? They're my 2x Great-Grandparents buried at Bern Cemetery. I already have Charles' father, James and Emma's parents.

Thank you

Mary Lloyd at Oxford Cemetery

I don't know if you are interested in this family or just photoed the stone and added it. I have added what I think is her death certificate. If you concur, the birth, death and maiden name are available.

Should you find this not to be the death certificate, or I have overstepped my bounds with your memorial, let me know and I'll delete it.

Good luck with your research.
