Bio and Links
I have been working on my family tree for about 30 years. There are over 12,000 names in it, with the concentration on the names Bittenbender, Brensinger, Gery (or Geary), Rader (or Roeder)and Reichl. My point of reference centers around Berks and Lehigh counties in Pa., although it branches out, mostly in eastern Pa. I have one missing link...Jacob Bittenbender (born in 1815 and died in 1863) who was married to Sarah Wagner. If you ever find his tombstone or record of death PLEASE PLEASE let me know. I also printed a Bittenbender-Gery volume of my notes and it is available at the Schwenkfelder Library in E. Greenville; I hope to get more updated copies available soon. Always open to new or corrected info. Thanks.

East Texas Cemetery
This is definitely a duplicate of the Salem Cemetery in East Texas. I asked the people who created the original memorials to move them to the correct cemetery and promised to delete my duplicates when this was done. Only one person has not yet moved her memorial, so it is the only memorial in that duplicate cemetery. I also asked the administrators to merge the two cemeteries, but that has not yet happened.

John Baran Sr.
Kitty, sorry for the delayed reply regarding John Baran's parents. Unfortunately I don't know where they are buried. John's obituary said he was a member of St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Bethlehem which used to be on Hayes St. If his parents lived in that area, the closest cemetery is St. Michael's on 4th Street in Bethlehem. That was the original Catholic Diocese Cemetery in Bethlehem but it closed around 1926/1927 and the Bethlehem Diocese cemetery is now Holy Saviour. There is an Anna Baran listed in St. Michaels on find a grave but no John. The only Slovak cemetery in Allentown I can think of is St. John the Baptist on Fullerton Avenue (behind the church.) Sorry I can't be more helpful. Dennis

RE: (Trinity Lutheran) Union Cem
Duplicate cemeteries are becoming more common unfortunately. Once created they cannot be deleted. Findagrave, when requested, will consolidate them but it takes quite a while. Thanks for the updates on these memorials.

RE: Conrad Headstone Pics
Hi Kitty,
I posted the picture and have been working on linking Charles Conrad's children. This is Paul V Conrad's line, however, I am interested in linking all Conrad's in the Johann Peter Conrad (1737-1789) line.
Thank you for the Find A Grave Memorials and pictures. If you are related to Charles, I will transfer family members to you.

Headstone Pictures
Hi Kitty,
Request permission to use your Headstone pictures in my family tree. The pictures are excellent and the script came out well. I have added Charles and Mary's picture to the memorials. Do not know the year taken.
Thank you,

Charles Carl Conrad
Hi Kitty,
I have a copy of Carl Conrad's Certificate of Birth, that has 1838 as the birth year. I went with the majority of public records that show him born in 1833. I will use the Church information and show 1838. Carl is the given name in the Church Record and the name Charles is not mentioned. 27 March 1838, is the also the Church Record date of birth.

I was looking at your post regarding Anthony Stahler. Would you be able to tell me where the note comes from stating who he was married to?
My notes indicate he was married to Susanna Christman and I am wondering if perhaps my information may not be correct.
Thanks so much.
BTW-I also have connections to Gery and Roeder in my lines if you would be interesting in chatting about those sometime.
