Thank you for letting me know I had the wrong picture on the memorial. I hope I have removed it!

I had some help from a friend who translates German to English.
"Here is the writing on the headstone [first in German]
Ist geboren den 1sten November AD 1762
Ist gestorben den 26sten November AD 1811
There is some lettering after 1811 but the grass covers it and the stone has also sunk into the ground.
Now what did the above say?
born on 1st November 1762
died on 26th November 1811"
CCGHS books are incorrect inmany cases. I use the cemetery records or the headstone when there is a conflict.
|Susie Yohe Garrett||RE: Conrad Yohe|
Thank you so much for all your help. I have looked here in Virginia where I live for Elisha Yohe for years. He died at in Hampton VA, Fort Monroe Hospital, at the very end of the civil war. I had no idea they could or would take his body back to PA. His brother and cousin Steven Yohe were also in the same unit in the civil war. His brother was my great great grandfather Jacob H Yohe and he married in 1871 here (Southampton County VA) and this Yohe line is still here. All of his other brothers and sisters stayed in Columbia CO PA. So thank you so much for finding him and sending the picture and all the infoon the stone. Now my heart can rest because I know his body is at home with his family and not just buried somewhere here in the south and unmarked. If you can every get a really good picture of both sides of the stone I would love to have a copy.
If you need anything down south let me know.
Susie Yohe Garrett
P.S. I will visit there someday if I can.

|Martha Jane (Schliesser) Hicks||RE: Your plans to visit Elizabeth Hosler's Grave at Harger's Cem.|
Thank you, thank you!!
|Amanda DeLuca Murphy||Sorry|
Sorry I meant Bluemousy not Jennifer. Don't know how that happened.
|Amanda DeLuca Murphy||Thanks!|
Thanks Jennifer for finding the headstones for William and Thomas Fisher. You must have done some digging because I know many of them are really grown over with grass!

They are not in the Columbia County Genealogical Cemetery book or in the Church cemetery listing.
But that doesn't mean they are not buried there.
If you can't find a headstone, that doesn't mean they aren't buried there either.
Union Cemetery has a lot of broken and missing stones. I know that they have been working on repairing and resetting some of the stones.
