Thank you very much for the photos/memorials of the Raffenspergers at Paradise Holtzschwamm Lutheran Church Cemetery. I have sent you an email as I have found some conflicting information. Hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you for your kindness and transferring the memorial to me.
Your volunteer efforts are appreciated,

I have been working on my grandfather Paul Daniel Yoder's list of the St Emanuel's cemetery.
I have about 173 records of birth and burial dates that you might not have. Most of these are records of births.
If you are interested in these records I have a spread sheet of records.
Please let me know if you are interested in these records.

Thank you so much for transferring his memorial. I would also appreciate any other Eppley members buried at Saint Paul's Wolf Evangelical Covenant Cemetery that you created. My ID # 46873059. thanks!!!
I'm hoping you can help. I'm a descendant of John and Mary Weigard who are buried at Paradise Holtzschwamm but on a recent visit we couldn't find them. We weren't sure if we just missed them or if the stones are gone? Thank you for any help you can give.

|Robert Lewis||Identity of the Rebecca Mikesell buried at Saint Bartholomew's Cemetery, Hanover, York Co. PA|
I have been researching this Mikesell family and I discovered that this Rebecca Mikesell is not Rebecca Bixler Mikesell, the wife of Peter B. Mikesell, but Rebecca Ann Mikesell, the unmarried dau. of the Jacob Mikesell (1790-1884), who was the father of William B. Mikesell, Henry Mikesell, and Peter B. Mikesell.
Rebecca Bixler Mikesell died in Wilmington, DE on 5 Dec 1903, per her Delaware Death Certificate. She had been living with her son William A. Mikesell there and is in the 1900 census with him, but the census gives the name as Maxwell!
I don't know where she was buried. It might have been next to her husband, Peter B. Mikesell, who died 25 Aug 1888 and was buried at Krider's Church on 27 Aug. 1888, per the Westminster newspapers of 1 Sep 1888, but there is no stone for either of them there. Which is a shame.
In Rebecca Ann's will, dtd. 16 Jan 1890 and probated 23 Dec 1895, she specifically states that she wants to be buried at St. Bartholomew's, and leaves everything to her servant, Amanda Kephart, whom she makes her executrix. Amanda was listed with her and Jacob Mikesell in the 1880 Myer's District census. Rebecca's birth date is given as 1824 in the census, and she died in 1895, so the dates on the tombstone seem to be a bit off.
Thanks for all your good work on this project!
