Any memorial that I am not related to will be gladly transferred following FAG guidelines.
My direct family lines are BECK, BRUBACHER/BRUBAKER, KILLIAN, OBER, FEHR. These families are of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Currently I am the Family Historian for the "Brubaker Families of America."
Also the Rankin/Renkin families of Pennsylvania. And my father's family HOGARTH and MOTLEY are in the Philadelphia area, and Lancaster & Schuylkill Counties. Now researching the DUNSTER family of New York.
I've been recording names as I go, so I can help the next person looking for that missing family member.
Any corrections or missing information you would like me to add, just forward it on to me. PLEASE use the edit link...
I am descended from the "adopted sister" Mamie Detweiler Renner that is referenced in Irwin's obituary on his memorial. I am interested in purchasing an Ancestry DNA kit for a descendant of Irwin's to prove or disprove my theory that Mamie is actually an illegitimate daughter of Irwin, and not his adopted sister. Would you mind posting the following on his memorial for me?

Thank you so much for all the edit changes you have made on all the Reigart/Reichard memorials. I unfortunately made a typo on the transcription to Anna Reichard's memorial referenced above. Please change Pfaliz in the 4th line to Pfalz.
Thank you and again thank you for the many edit changes I have submitted that you have made.
Spouse of Jacob McQuate I see that you have Elisa Pickings as Jacob's spouse. However, if you look at her grave marker, it is not the same shape as Jacob's. Also Jacob's son states that his mother was Susan Pickings. If you look at Susanna McQuate's grave marker http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=McQuate&GSfn=susan&GSiman=1&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSob=n&GRid=20784604&df=all& it is the same as Jacob's. My records show that Jacob McQuate was married to Susan (Susanna) Pickings rather than Elisa.
Heagy family I am trying to located the parents of Elizabeth Haegy, born 10 Dec 1825 in Lancaster County. As there are several Haegy, Heagy persons in the Hernley cemetery that you recorded, I am wondering if there is an earlier burial ground nearby that would have some earlier burials. Thanks for posting so much to help us, and I am hoping you can lead me to earlier Haegy families.
Anna Brubaker Becker d/o Jacob & Anna Memorial# 67894254. Thanks for the info on her parents/grandparents. I have made changes, however, the card file at Lanc. Mennonite Hist. Society lists her mother as "Anna Herr d/o Christian, Anna Hostetter". Is this incorrect?
