Troxell connection
Good day Joan,
I noticed your note which you left on, Charles E. Miller #8281708, my maternal grandfather's memorial page.

YOU WROTE: In Memory of Charles Edward "Mickey" Miller, Sr-My 7th cousin 2 Times Removed

Since you have figured him to be your distant cousin, then I am assuming that you have the Troxell history. I have only climbed the branch as far as Mickey's gr-grandmother, Rebecca Newhart Troxell #89289907, who was the widow of the late Adam Troxell when she died according to her obit. I have not pinpointed this Adam Troxell, but do have a possible candidate.
Adam Troxell #70789787 who is buried in the Egypt Cemetery in Lehigh Co. and you also left a note on his memorial.

YOU WROTE: In Memory of Adam Troxell-My 4th Cousin 5 Times Removed

This leads me to believe I may have the right Adam Troxell. May you please share your info concerning these particular people so that I may move forward in my Troxell knowledge.
Your help will be greatly appreciated!
God bless,
Harry's Daughter aka Trudy (your very distant relative)

Looking for Furman Weider
Hi Joan,

I'm looking for the grave my 3G-grandfather, Furman Weider. He was the husband of Jennie E. (Humann) Weider and father of Sarah E. (Weider) Souders. Do you have any idea where his grave may be?

My parents checked Rieglesville Union Cemetery, and he is not there with Jennie.

Please check Jacob J Bowman and James J Bowman in Cambria Mills Cemetery. Are they one and the same? Date of birth is strange. I posted same grave photo to both entries. If one is incorrect please let me know.

Hi Joan: When you post pictures of deceased, please make sure you don't post them as grave (use person, etc fro drop down menu) When I see the headstone symbol, I don't search for that stone when walking cemetery and photoing headstones.
