RE: Forest Hill
Jo,

Blaine's mother, Fanny Mook, was a sister of my g-grandmother, Caroline Mook. Daniel and Fanny Erb lived in the Black Run area near my grandparents, Merrill and Laura Reitenbach. The Erb and Reitenbach children were near the same ages and ran around together. I copied columns that ran in the Lewisburg Saturday News about the Black Run area and the happenings there. My grandmother Laura Reitenbach did the column so I was interested in it. From one of those columns, I copied this: "Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Erb and Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Gentiles, of Canandaigua, N.Y., spent over the week-end at the Daniel Erb home." So Blaine's brother Ernest must have moved to the Canandaigua, NY area. I also copied this:"Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Gentiles, Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Erb and Mr. Ream Erb, of Canandaigua, N.Y., spent over the week-end at the home of their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Erb."
so Ream Erb must have moved to NY also. I believe Mrs. Samuel Gentiles was Mary Erb.

I do have 13 children listed for Daniel and Fanny Erb, although one, Raymond, I don't have a birthdate.

Sorry to get so long winded, I sometimes get carried away with this genealogy stuff.

RE: Forest Hill
Actually, I live in Lancaster County but grew up in Lewisburg and a number of relatives live near Forest Hill as well as a number also being buried there. I have a cabin in the mountains and get by the cemetery to take photos. I put a picture of Blaine Erb's tombstone on his memorial. I thought I had posted it before but I guess not. Blaine was a distant, distant relative (2nd cousin a couple of times removed). Sorry I didn't respond sooner but I haven't been on findagrave for quite awhile.
