Bio and Links
Bio Photo My particular areas of interest are Berks, Montgomery, Schuylkill, and Lehigh Counties in Pennsylvania.

I do not acknowledge a name in a cemetery with a name only, blank dates and no other means of identification.

Do not request a middle name be added unless it appears in a obituary/death/burial/birth record/tombstone. Mother's last names are seldom given as a middle name at baptism.

My Patriots of the Revolution include:
George Herbst 1712, George Dry 1725, Johannes Koch 1725, Daniel Guldin 1735, Johann Christian Scheidt 1736, Michael DeLong 1739, Bernhard Eitel 1745, Michael Krebs 1744, Henrich Knauss 1746, John De Turck 1747, Marmaduke Von Buskirk 1750, John Grant 1754, Sebastian Koch 1757

RE: William Shoemaker (1844-1920)
Thank you! I only gave that much detail so you could be positive that the photo you posted was wrong. I wouldn't want anyone to take my word for it if I didn't have proof.

RE: FRAKTUR for Scharadin Family on Ebay
Too expensive. I did take a screen shot, but it is not clear enough to read. My grandparents fracturs are on Find A Grave and I sent the originals to Berks County Historical Museum. 39625674/39625711

RE: William Shoemaker (1844-1920)
The photo and message you added is NOT that person. The William Shoemaker whose page you posted on was not a reverend, and did not live in Columbia (which is in Lancaster County). If you go back to that November 23, 1912 edition of the Reading Eagle, you will see that your Rev. W.A. Shoemaker was born in Berks County on Sep. 16, 1845. He was a minister of the United Evangelical Church, and was living in Columbia, Lancaster Co. in the 1910 census.
The right William Shoemaker was born May 31, 1844 in Greenwood Twp., Columbia Co. and died April 7, 1920 in Berwick, Columbia Co. He and his wife Frances were living in Berwick in the 1910 census. He married Frances Ebert Sep. 9, 1869 in Bloomsburg, PA. I have his birth record written in his father's Bible in my home, and his death certificate is online. It says right on his tombstone that he was in Co.D, 188th Pa.Vol.
I have written to Sue Herbeine, the owner of the page, and hopefully she will be able to take down the wrong information if you're not willing to do it. I just thought you would appreciate having accurate information attached to your name.

William Shoemaker (1844-1920)
I am the great-great-niece of William Shoemaker and you have included information on his page for the wrong person. This William H. Shoemaker was the son of Michael and Lavina Heacock Shoemaker, married to Frances Ebert. He was in Co. D of the 188th PA Volunteers (as shown on his tombstone). He was discharged on 5/22/1865 from the McClellan Hospital in Philadelphia with wounds suffered in the battle of Cold Harbor, VA.
He worked as a wheelwright and was employed by the American Car & Foundry Co. in Berwick, which manufactured railroad cars.

RE: Ruppert
Hi Neil,

Thanks for alerting me to this. I do not have access to the book cited, but I will see if I can get to a library to check the birth/baptism records. Assuming they are straightforward, I believe that this post is correct. I (and lots of other people) will need to revise their thinking about Catharine's parents, but now that we can read the birth date on the gravestone, thanks to you, it seems irrefutable that she is not the Catharine born to Adam and his wife in August 1793.
And I think we can figure out her date of death, which is only partially legible on the stone. Born March 25, 1793, age 77 years, 6 months and 27 days, I make her date of death to be October 20,21 or 22, depending on how they counted the day of birth and day of death. I think I see a "2" on the stone, so this seems to make sense.
Unfortunately not much seems to be know about Henry Deirolf, at least compared to Adam, so it makes a less colorful family history, but it seems to be accurate.
Thanks again.
