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.

Catherine Mease Brensinger Metz
Catherine was the first wife of Aaron and later married Metz. I found the memorial of her daughter that has suspected her to be the daughter of Aaron: Find A Grave Memorial# 79786329. I will contact the other memorial owner so we can combine the records and delete one of them. Thanks, KimH

RE: James H. Roberts
Kitty, thank you so much. Yes every little bit helps. It takes a lot of searching from all of us to put families together.

Regarding Wm Buchert
After enlarging the tombstone, I believe this Wm Buchert was one month 12 days old when he died. So he couldn't be the one you are looking for. I could be wrong... but this is what I can decipher ..

Recently you sent me an addition to this burial. I have taken the liberty of adding the obituary.

Harrison Fegely/Fegley/Fegely
Good question. I've found his name spelled three different ways, so take your pick. I choose Fegely to make it easier for others to find him. His marker is the only place I've seen his name spelled that way, though other Fegeleys use it. It's a derivative of the German Voegele (with an umlaut over the o) that the English speaking legal people couldn't quite get their tongue's around.

He was my husband's great-greatgrandfather.
