|Bio and Links|
I am ever searching for my ancestors. Both our families are 12 generation Americans, some 13! Most German, Dutch and Native American. Surnames: Bechtel, Bechdel, Keffer, Keefer, DeHaas, Van Houten, Rohrbach ,Strouss, Houser, Lozier, Losier, Le Sueur Begraft, Slot. I have always been seeking their old headstones and cemeteries so I started "collecting" photos years ago. Now, I finally have a place to help people find those long lost graves. I am earnestly trying to photograph the numerous very old graves scattered about my area of Central Pennsylvania. Many a brave pioneer family headstone will be lost to ravages of time. I've been known to commit various acts of genealogy kindness. Willing to headstone hunt in Union, Snyder, Northumberland, Lycoming and parts of Centre Counties. Contact me with any ?s, corrections or requests. Presently trying to start getting all the churches to transcribe their records for better availability as well as historical document preservation techniques. Help is needed. If you see my name on a cemetery photo, then it is accessible to me and I may have more information, feel free to ask. IF I HAVE ENTERED OR PHOTOGRAPHED YOUR ANCESTORS, PLEASE write me, I can give you "ownership" of their memorial here! Follow the guidelines and I need the memorial # and your member number.|

Saw your pictures on Find A Grave of Oak Hill. I am looking for Lefflers there and didn't find ones reported as buried there on their death certificates. Do you know if there is a listing of cemeteries in Dauphin (and Northumberland) somewhere else besides Find A Grave. I do well in Schuylkill, but not these others. I don't expect you to do and searching (at least not today from what I hear on the news!). I need someone from that area that I can ask where to find info that is not ancestry.com or Find A Grave. I hope to come that way this summer, even if I have to come alone - been putting off too many years.
From your bio it looks like you lead a full life. Sounds like fun.

I have a Nary Hepler that married Jacob Ickes. ANd I followed back 2 generations on the Hepler's. I know there is more. And no I haven't been to a reunion. And we thought we lived in a large world. Doesnt take long to find relatives.

Leanne, I noticed you took the main entrance photo for this cemetery. Recently, I saw a grave stone of my ancestor on the wrong memorial. When I inquired to the creator of the memorial questioning it he removed it along with the stone but now says he doesn't know what happened to it. I am wondering if you are the one that had originally took the photo and, if so, if you would post it on my ancestors memorial or let me. She was SARAH (SALOME) YODER who married my DAVID STEIN and they are buried at Jacob's Cemetery, Line Mountain. I have memorial number for her (my memorial) #13151743. the stone would be marked SARAH STEIN as far as I can recall but may have had yoder in the middle of it. Her dates are: b. Sept. 5, 1805 ~ d. June 11, 1882. Can you let me know? Thank you! Sue (SM)
