|Richard Roberts||RE: Mary|
Hello PAS: Many thanks for your e-mails. The information which you cited for Mary Magdelena Samsel matches the dates on her headstone (See Find A Grave# 84178309). She was clearly married to John Philip Ball (Find A Grave #84179162) since they are buried next to one another in the Charles Evans Cemetery in Reading, PA. They were my 3-great grandparents. Buried on the same plot is her mother Hannah Weicker Samsel (Find A Grave#84180202) (1776-1860). The gravestone is shattered but I could read the DOD as 1860 which matches the Federal Mortality Schedule, as well as CE Cemetery burial records. Hannah Weicker Samsel was married to Abraham Samsel, who I am sure is the Abraham Samsel buried in the Christ Church in Trumbauersville, PA. Abraham's death records indicate that he died June 4, 1826 at 60 years old, so he would have been born around 1766-1767. Church records indicate a baptism of an Abraham Samsel in 1771, so either Abraham 1766 was 5 at baptism or the baptism was of the other Abraham Samsel (1771-1789). Clearly Abraham (1771-1789) was not 60 y.o. at death. The Find A Grave memorial for the Abraham Samsel headstone in Christ Church indicates he was 60 years old. The DOD on the memorial is June 8, 1780 however, this is essentially unreadable. I have been to the Christ Church and could not find the gravestone since most are unreadable. I have asked Aimee Pattison to recheck the date since it probably incorrect on the memorial.
I have seen your message to Aimee concerning the other Hannah Samsel, 1839-1843,(Find A Grave# 55801666), i.e. the child of Johannes and Leanna. Her parents would be Leanna Cope (Find A Grave# 88847110) and John Samsel (Find A Grave# 88286861).
I hope to clarify the Abrahams. Thank you. Rich Roberts
|Aimee Pattison||Hannah Samsel|
Thank you for the email. This Hannah is a child, dau. of Johannes & Leanna. I didn't add spouse or children to Abrahams memorial. I only add info I have proof on thru church records.
Merry Christmas & God's blessings.
|Cheryl Brown-Morales||RE: Stewart Family-Riverside Cem.|
You are very welcome. Your request was easy it had the section and number.
Right now it is snowing and most stones can not be read but I do have many pictures a friend and I took through the years that I do not have time to post.
I do not have the new section but I do have much of the old section.
If before you make your post call Riverside to get the correct section.
Office Hours: 7:30am - 3:30pm
Sample of sections A-1 or B-3 or G4) My pictures are all in folders named like that and some are not named so I would not have time to go through all the folders to find what is needed. I love helping people.
I am not just writing this for you, I am hoping other people will see this message and call first.
|D Fryman||Shick Photos|
I am uploading several Shick photos today for the memorials that you requested. I can send a copy of the cemetery card for Jacob Shick, Sec 2, Lot 206, if you would like. firstname.lastname@example.org No markers for Jacob & Eliz. Donna

Do you know where the book "sorting of the Samsels" may be available? Mary Magdalena Samsel Ball = 84178309 was my 3GGM.
|Marcell V.||RE: Riverside Cem.|
I'm always disappointed when I can't find someone or their headstone.
|okieskater||RE: Ammi & Kimetia Barber|
You are welcome. I love the old obits and their flowery words.
|okieskater||Ammi and Kimetia Barber|
Funny - I was just about to get to them. I did go ahead and post their obits before I transferred them to you so if you don't want it published do as you wish.
|Donna Elliott||RE: Transfer of Memorial|
Good luck in your research !
