Deardorff Family I'm one of the GGGrand kids of Susannah Deardorff/Shaffer and she is one of the daughters of Jacob and Sophiah Deardorff at Ulrich cemetery. Please take a look at the site for Sophiah #65120320 I just found the Obit two days ago. Also take a look at the spelling of Deardorff, I notice you have the other spelling for Jacob but looking at #65120316 you can see the spelling on the marker isn't the same as yours. Checking with the Trustee they show the spelling to be as it appears on the marker in their record. Trustee office said they had been thinking they would receive the Ulrich church records from an elderly man that had been a member of the church. However when he passed the people clearing his stuff never turn the records over, so at this point those records are lost. Anyway this is just to give you some more info about the Deardorff family. I found the Obit to be very interesting and did you know that Peter had received a bad cut to his face in an accident at his mill. This was also in the newspaper for Hagerstown and Indianapolis April 1883. Thanks. Tim
Anna G Wenger Gish Hello again - I am confused about Anna G Wenger whom married Jacob B Gish (1767-1836). There are two different memorials for his wife Anna # 53201928 and then there is # 123512240 Is it because it is unclear when she died and who her parents are? I do still want to thank you for posting all this information - it is nice and I appreciate the time it takes. Kimberly from KS
Eva Sporny Witkofsky Hi there, Bill. I was just noticing that a few years back, when we were discussing Sporny genealogy, that Eva's memorial didn't get linked to those of her parents, Joseph and Anna (Lewandowski) Sporny. I've just submitted to you a linking request for Eva memorial to theirs, if you'll check for and clear it when you get a chance. Thanks! I'm trying to ensure Joseph and Anna get linked to the memorials of each of their kids. Best regards, Cousin Dave Wilson
Richrds - Saint Holland Please remove the photo from memorial 24484147. This is his father. Note SR on the stone. The story information is correct. Birth and death is incorrect - have requested it be changed to known until we find the correct information.
Jacob Gish info correction Jacob Gish's first wife was Anna Vineyard, Wingert, Wenger. She was the mother of all of his children. His second wife was Catherine "Caty" Snider Stover, the widow of John Stover. (Stover was the father of all of her 1 children.) John died in October 1829 and she married Jacob in Dec 1830. Catherine was my 2x grgrmother on my maternal side. Jacob Gish was my mother's father's father's mother's father, and thus my 3x grgrfather. So Jacob Gish was both my 3x grgrfather and my 2x step-grgrfather.

I do believe that you have confused two cemeteries here. After researching we discovered that the directions on the home page for Holland Cemetery are the directions to Berryman Cemetery. It is marked Berryman.
We took all the tombstones photos yesterday and they match with findagrave records for Berryman and not with Holland.
The picture that you have of Holland has a comment written on it that this Cemetery is located on St. Rd 6 in Navasota, TX next to Crossing Community Church in Navasota. The photo you posted is of Holland and that is right. Only the directions are wrong.
Could you contact findagrave administration and have the directions to Holland Cemetery corrected. This was very confusing for us - Thanks
