We have been researching our family for about 28 years and have traveled to several states for genealogy. Many of our memorials are for "extended" family members, but others are not. We hope someone finds the information we post helpful in their own research.|
Except for those photos listed within our *Posted with Permission* virtual cem, every tombstone or cemetery photo we post was taken by us on the date indicated in the photo caption.

OUR PHOTO POLICY:
-- All contributor-posted photographs are intended for PERSONAL USE, unless stated otherwise. As such, and to comply with current Copyright Law, you SHOULD NOT post (and/or republish) any contributor's cemetery or tombstone photos elsewhere without permission.
-- Regarding our cemetery and tombstone photographs, specifically... we will usually grant permission for unaltered OTHER USE when asked, but with the added stipulation that you provide a photo source citation (by referencing both "Find A Grave" [or www.findagrave.com] AND our profile name AND # in the Description) for any photographs taken from this website; for example, "Photo courtesy of Find A Grave Contributor: Law-Miller Roots (#47103448)".
-- Please be advised that we will work to have any of our unattributed/unsourced copied photos removed from websites - as we retain the copyright on ALL photographs that we have taken and posted. It is actually NOT acceptable to just indicate you took the photo from Find A Grave (since this site does not own the copyright to any of the contributor-posted photographs).
-- Note that you can provide a link back to the Find A Grave memorial, instead of copying (i.e. Ancestry's built-in "weblinks" function can be used for this exact purpose). This option works quite well.
-- Finally, Please do not download and then republish any family portraits we post, as these come from private family collections.

NOTE: If we've submitted a memorial that you want to make corrections to, or if you would like a memorial transferred (and we're not also related in some way) let us know via the Edit Tab and we'll take care of it asap.

|Arthur Hepler||George Jacob Hepler b.1744|
George Jacob Hepler b.1744 is not buried in White Oak Cemetery. He is buried in Wilson Cemetery which is in the woods behind White Oak.
George Jacob Hepler sailed with his parents (Casper & Susanna Schieble Hoeppler(Hepler) to America from Rotterdam, Holland. He arrived in Philadelphia, PA on Sept. 16, 1748 aboard the Ship ", PATIENCE" along with his father, mother, and younger brother Christopher. He grew up in Northampton Co. about 10 miles South of Allentown, PA Jacob was a veteran of the Revolutionary War. He was a private in the 4th Battalion, PA Militia under Colonel Seigfried at Bethlehem, PA, part of General Israel Putman's Brigade. The man who made famous the saying "Don't shoot till you see the whites of their eyes". After the war he sold his portion of the land inherited from his father to his brother. Jacob and Henry Hepler were included in a 1796 list of taxables in Nescopeck Township, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. About 1797 Jacob with his family moved to the Barren Run Area of South Huntingdon Twp., Westmoreland Co., PA The Direct Tax of 1798 records Jacob Hepler as living in South Huntingdon Twp., Westmoreland Co., PA At that time he was living on a place of 343 acres with a house (17X17) and barn (40X25). 202 acres of this land was owned by Samuel Rule and 141 acres was owned by Thomas Shields. In 1798 Jacobs neighbors were Henry Hoffman and George Sherbondy. Henry Hoffman died in 1802. Henry Hoffman's Will specified that the sale of his farm was to be used to build a church. A few years later the First Brick Church in Western, PA was built on the Henry Hoffman land patent and dedicated in 1813. The present Hoffman Church, built in 1866 was located not far from this first brick church. Ruless and Shields lands laid some what northeast and southeast of Hoffmans. This information places our Jacob Hepler in 1798 residing within an eastern 1 mile radius of the present Hoffman Church, most likely along the Barren Run Road. The 1800 census showed Jacob (last name spelled Helper), his wife, three sons, and two daughters living in South Huntingdon Twp., Westmoreland Co., PA, probably at the same 1798 location. About 1802/03 Jacob left his four younger sons in Westmoreland Co. and removed to Sugar Creek Twp., Armstrong Co., PA where his older son Jacob Jr., had settled. Jacob remained in the Sugar Creek Twp. area of Armstrong Co., PA until his death in 1808. Jacob and Elizabeth are buried at Wilson Cemetery, Donegal Twp.. Butler Co., PA The Wilson Cemetery is in the woods behind the White Oak Cemetery which is in Fairview Twp., Butler Co., PA. The township lines cut through the area between the White Oak cemetery and the Wilson cemetery.

I apologize for the very slow response, I have been on extended travel.
I have now entered all of your suggested corrections and links for Ruth SCHWARTZ TROUT and Belle MCCAHAN TROUT.
I was especially pleased that your corrections helped me identify a serious error in my database, I had attributed the wrong Frank TROUT (husband of Belle) as the son of George Washington TROUT and Delilah HELLER, so your corrections were especially helpful.
THANK YOU so very much!
All good wishes,
Craig H. Trout
Thank you for trying to get the Jacob Hemminger marker photograph. Do you know if the mausoleum is open during cemetery hours? Or is it always dead bolted shut?

|Linda Becker||Thank You!|
Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph the headstone of Richard Harrington. I am helping a descendant of his to obtain DAR membership and the photos will help prove lineage.
