I finished computerizing the records of Jerusalem Lutheran Church, Rothsville. To supplement those records, I am trying to make sure that everyone in the cemetery has a Findagrave Memorial, even those without a gravestone, and that each person is linked to his parents. If you can help by providing information, please contact me, and please add personal photos that you may possess.

Most of my memorials are connected to either the families of interest to me, The Hannes Eby Death and Burial Book, or Jerusalem Lutheran Cemetery in Rothsville. I also try to add some of Old Warwick Township's hidden and vulnerable family cemeteries. Before I add a memorial I usually research it extensively.

PLEASE send ideas and corrections, but I am reluctant to transfer any of the foregoing memorials.

However, whenever I visit a newer cemetery I take a few "serendipity" photos. These are gravestones that catch my eye for whatever reason. If you are related, please let me know, and I will transfer them.

And, since this is Find-a-GRAVE, I am loathe to link to "unknown" burials.

Denise, we've updated this memorial. We've left the death date of 1922 in the date field, as that is what is on the stone; and we've added the death information you've supplied in the bio field. Thanks for the info,
Carol & Pete

RE: Fort photos
You are very welcome! I'm always glad to help. It was a little windy but still a very good day to be walking the cemetery. :)

Anna Weaver Search - Thanks
Thank you for searching for any grave marker for Anna Bressler Weaver (b.1814, d.1831) in the Longeneckers Reformed Mennonite Cemetery in Lancaster, PA.

Your efforts on behalf of this relative are most appreciated. I have updated my records and her Find A Grave memorial to reflect your findings that the stone no longer exists or was not moved from the Weaver graveyard.
