Bio and Links
Hi I am Louis E. Wiegand, III most everyone knows me as Buddy. I was born in Johnstown, PA and have lived in Florida since 1960. I have been interested in my family tree from a young age from listening to stories my grandparents would tell me.

I started out on findagrave after my father passed away and have added not just graves for my family but my wife's and my son-in-law's family. I have also started with adding local burials that are not being added.

As I have found a lot of Amish and Mennonite in my ancestry I also belong to the Swiss Anabaptist Genealogical Association (SAGA). A few of my sources are Descendents of Jacob Hochstetler, Descendents of Barbara Hochstetler and Amish and Amish Mennonite Genealogies.

I also am involved in Civil War reenacting as a hobby.

RE: Joyella Troyer Hodge
Yes, Emanuel and Ellennora are Joyella's parents. Family teases that she was one of those "oops" babies.

Mary E Yoder
Hi Buddy. Question for you. You had provided information on Mary (98401614) being the husband of Joel (98391521). I have been contacted by another member who believes this link is incorrect. They have indicated that Joel was married to a Mary E Wetzel in 1881 and divorced in 1905. The Mary currently linked was only born in 1909. Let me know what you think.

RE: Marion Mennonite Church
Thanks for info on C Robert Shank. I forwarded the obit to the F/A/G contributor for posting.

Now how do we find out if his wife is actually buried beside him? remember there was not engraving on the tombstone.
