RE: Rank# 30185166 & Hannah {?} Handwork# 54819505
Thanks, Gina. Yes, we are all safe from the huge amounts of flooding all Winter and Spring! Now, is getting "Texas Summer Hot"!

My sister, Judy and her daughter, Angela, volunteer at the Brazos Bend State Park about 30 miles from where they live, and it is still flooded and cannot be used as yet. They live Southwest of Houston near the Brazos River.

Gary and I are in Dallas; although experiencing some exciting storms, we're fine! Thanks for asking!

One day, Judy and I hope to travel again to Pennsylvania...I'll let you know if we do...perhaps we can meet at St Mary's cemetery in Warwick! Many of our Dad's Ancestors are buried in Chester County. He was born in Coatesville and also lived in Springfield, Delaware County.

You are a Blessing to us!

Your "Texas Connection to Pennsylvania" ;-)

Rock Church Cemetery
You can take your pick of names. It began life as the Rock Baptist Church and Cemetery in 1846. It remained the Rock Baptist until it was assumed by the Mennonite congregation, perhaps around 1900-1920 when the Baptists dwindled to nothing. Then it became the Rock Mennonite Church and Cemetery. In 1968, the Rock Mennonite Church took the 120 perches the church and cemetery were on, by quiet title proclaiming it as theirs by quit claim. They remained in possession of the premises until 2002, but had changed their name to the Hopewell Mennonite Church. In 2002 the Hopewell Mennonite Church sold it to Titus and Esther Kurtz. Esther died and Titus sold it in 2004 to an entity called Rock Church Properties. In 2010 Rock Church properties sold it to Paul and Jean Dovin. In 2014 the Dovins formed a limited liability corporation name of NNR Real Estate Ventures LLC and transferred ownership to the LLC. Burials were made at the rate of 1 a year, sometimes 2, 3, or 4, but not every year. The last burials were made 2003, 2004, 2006 and of 2010. Obituaries for the burials used all of the names interchangeable. It's official address is actually 2488 North Twin Valley Road, Elverson. It is on the corner of North Twin Valley Road and Rock Church Lane.

Cyrus Marsh Memorial# 20746955
Continuing my research on the Rock Cemetery on Rock Church Lane, I've found that Cyrus Marsh Memorial# 20746955, did not die in 1815, he died in 1875. He was a veteran, which he couldn't have been if he died at age 3. Also the Rock Church was not built until 1846, and it is unlikely there was a cemetery before there was a church.

Louise Shepherd Memorial# 20746376
You posted the burial of Louise Shepherd Memorial# 20746376, giving her a birth year of 1909. According to her obituary and the Social Security Death Index, Louise was born in 1929, not 1909. Also you call the cemetery she is buried in the Rock Road Cemetery. The cemetery is on Rock Lane, not Rock Road. I'm working on a history of this cemetery, that was known simply as the Rock Cemetery. Below is Louise's obituary

Louise M. Shepherd of Elverson
Berks-Mont News, Boyertown, PA
News of Southeastern Berks
POSTED: 12/12/2010

Louise M. Shepherd, 81, of Elverson, died on Thursday, Dec. 9, 2010, at Lancaster General Hospital, following an illness. She was born on May 28, 1929, in Rising Sun, Md. She was the daughter of the late Ambrose and Hattie Jane (Pettington) Greer. She was the wife of the late Willard Shepherd, who died in 1996. Louise was a retired cook for the former Howard Johnson's Restaurant at the Brandywine Travel Plaza. She enjoyed sewing projects and cooking for her beloved family. She was preceded in death by a son, Bobby Charles Shepherd, and three brothers. Louise is survived by a son, William Shepherd of Honey Brook; four daughters, Linda Kulcyski of Reading, Connie Lausch of York Heaven, Sandra Shepherd of Elverson and Carol Griffith of Narvon; three brothers, Charles and Donald Greer of Florida and Bruce Greer of Maryland; two sisters, Peg Shipley of Florida and Betty Matthews of Virginia.

Oscar Grubb Memorial# 20746490
According to the death certificate of Oscar Grubb, who was buried at Rock Church Cemetery in Caernarvon Twp., Berks County, PA...your Memorial# 20746490

Oscar Leroy Grubb was born on Jan. 3, 1889 and died on Oct 4, 1948 (not 1943), son of Jacob Grubb and Frances Sheeler.

I had a look at your photo of the tombstone, which isn't all together clear, but I do believe it is engraved as 1948 not 1943.
