Bio and Links
Bio Photo I find copying headstones interesting, I like finding interesting people with interesting story's. Most my family buried in the greater Philadelphia area but I live in the Harrisburg area so I'll copy headstones here. Worked inside most my life and wanted to be outside after I retired so copied headstones and published them in the Quarterly once issued by the Capital Area Genealogical Society.

Please use 'edit' tab on memorial page for corrections and or additional information.
I now strictly adhere to the Find A Grave guidelines regarding transfers. No exceptions. Requests made that fall outside of the guidelines, or do not state relationship, are no longer being acknowledged. Virtual cemeteries are the way to "gather" your ancestors together.

Please don't justify an out-of-guideline transfer request for the sake of adding links and/or other information. Am perfectly capable of doing this, especially now with the new EDIT system - much quicker than transferring. If you decide to not forward information or links because a transfer isn't done, then that's your decision.

RE: John Frederick Gaul
I only ended up going yesterday because I was already in the area for a weekend camping trip, but you are right - some office help might have been nice. :-)

If Adam Gaul's plot # is correct (I think he's JF Gauls' grandson), he should be in section 13 and I figured I might find the others there, but it's totally overgrown. There is a foot path that goes beside that section, but I was alone and given the state of the surrounding neighborhood, I was frankly reluctant to get out of my car. My plan is to gather up some source docs first and do a bit of emailing with the cemetery, then plan another trip.

Did you lose the quit claim with all your other records? If you still have it, would it be possible for me to get a look? If you don't have it, I'm probably going to contact the City Archives anyway, since I understand most of Mt. Moriah's records were transferred there. Maybe they'll have a copy.

The reason why I questioned whether the JF Gaul from Germany could be at Fernwood is because Fernwood wasn't in operation until the 1870s - a few decades after his death. But you make a good point about the graves being moved. Some of the questions might be answered if I can get a good look at what's under the weeds at Mt. Moriah.

From what you described, it sounds as though we are related in some way. My great-grandmother was Laura Blanche Gaul Mitchell, daughter of one Bentley Gaul.

I'd be very interested in hearing anything else you might remember from the Gaul tree. Very sorry to hear you lost all your records!

I'll be sure to post updates as I uncover new info.

John Frederick Gaul
Hello Robert,

I've seen your posts here and on Ancestry and I have a question. I am a direct descendant of John Frederick Gaul, born in Germany in 1757 and buried near Philadelphia. I have family in both Fernwood and Mt. Moriah. I am wondering what source you are using to know that he is in Fernwood. I ask only because it seems that some of his earlier descendants were in Mt. Moriah and the later ones in Fernwood. It seems more logical that he'd be in Mt. Moriah. I'm headed to Fernwood today and I might be able to resolve it anyway, but I thought I'd ask. Thanks!

RE: Danner
Robert, the ancestor of Adaline Danner got back to me and they are sure now. I went with the death certificate. Thanks for the update.

John E . Mem. # 148481703
I'm not sure what you mean by your comment- 'Aw come on, this not a good entry, you gotta be kidding."?
This gravestone was found on the same plot as Bertha F # 44376506 and Daniel E Seip #42551602 as I've stated in at the bottom of the picture, but I cannot find any information to link them as their children. I see you have a memorial listed as "Sarah Ann" #148013674
What would your suggestion be for this memorial?

Robert, I contacted Adaline Danner's grand daughter for further clarification. Thanks for your hard work.

I completed the edit on Adaline Danner. Her Granddaugher contacted me about her maiden name Yarnell. Not sure where the Knisely comes in. Thank you for all your hard work on Findagrave.

Henry Paul Schade " 40769365
Henry Schade according to your posting born 1844 and died 22 Jan 1895. Buried in the Baldwin Cemetery, Steelton, Dauphin County, PA.

Please tell me where you got this information as I have hit a brick wall trying to link him back to Germany. He was also known as Henrich Paul Schade. He and Margaretha were married before coming to the US. She arrived with two of her children. Apparently "Henry" arrived before her.

If anyone would take a picture of their gravemarkers, if there are some, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Janice
