Bio Photo Any memorial that I am not related to will be gladly transferred following FAG guidelines.

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...

Maria Koehler Ziegler
You have added a photo to Maria Koehler Ziegler's memorial page, #94504979. The burial is listed as unknown. Do you happen to know which cemetery you took the photo in? Her husband, Johannes Oberholtzer Ziegler was buried in Lower Skippack Mennonite Cemetery, Skippack, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, USA. I can read that she was born May 19, 1805, and died August 5, 18?? (perhaps 18_5), aged ?? years, 2 months and 17 days. Can you decipher the date?

Garwood Detweiler
I was wondering if you could post a photo of the headstone for Valentine (#30461209), Emma (#30461220) & Garwood Detweiler on Garwood's memorial page #160279607? You already have it on his parent's memorial pages.

father of Catherine Ruth Rickert

I was wondering if you had any contacts with the Ruth family that might lead me to the father of Catherine "Katie" Ruth Rickert, wife of Abraham Rickert and Isaac Rickert. My sources indicate that her parents are named Isaac and Catherine or Christian and Barbara. Isaac and Christian are both sons of Henry Ruth.

I notice that you are a researcher in Lancaster County, PA. and listed the Nissley family in Manheim Township or Hempfield Township which I'm trying to find out more about. I have Maria Nissley who married Christian Musser and her parents Martin Nissley and Barbara Stauffer.

Lizzie M Swartley
Find A Grave Memorial# 53313348

According to the stone photo you have attached to Lizzie M Swartley, her parents were " J M Swartley" and Elizabeth Swartley.

I believe Elizabeth R. (Swartley) Daubert, 1841-1875, buried at St Stephens Union Cemetery (up the road from Line Lexington Mennonite) is the daughter of Jacob Swartley and Anna Ruth Swartley.
She is my 3x great-grandmother.

The Swartleys are a confusing bunch! Hope this helps.

Thanks for your hard work,

I see you have the memorial 66509604 for Susanna (Susan) Bowman, wife of John Bowman. She is my 4x great-grandmother. Her maiden name was Lausch, not Baer. Her parents were John (107887076) and Catharina (107887145) Lausch. Info per childrens' death certificates.

Ralph E. Rupert
I just visited the WWII grave of my uncle Ralph E. RUPPERT in Henri Chapelle American Military Cemetery in Belgium. I noticed another Ralph E. Rupert listed as buried there and also found on findagrave. That Ralph born in 1916 and died in 1945. His service #33245137 60th Inf 9th Div.

If he is the same man as your posting and his grave was later moved or a marker added to his family plot you may wish to link the postings somehow or add the information to your posting.

Henri Chapelle American Military Cemetery in Belgium is a most beautiful place honoring those who died nearby.
