You took a photo of a marker at overlook cemetery on Oct. 9, 2011 of Thomas J Franklin. I was curious if you could share with me who was interested in that marker. Thomas Jefferson Franklin was my great great grandfather and am researching the Franklin line.
Also note that right next to that stone is Andrew and Lidamae Larcombe. Lidamae is Thomas J Franklin's grand daughter and my grandmother. Next to Lidamae is a baby grave of Quinton. That is Lidamae's brother.
RE: David H. Knipe Hello, I also took a photo of his wife's grave, you may be looking for her. Her name is Mary Sheive on her grave it says Mary Sheive former ?? of David Knipe born Oct 1767 and died on April 10 1850. If you add her name I will gladly add her photo.
Rakers From what I could tell, Martin Raker d. 1802, does not have a visible gravestone. He was buried before the church was built. I could not find him, nor his wife who also was buried before the building by a couple years. I would like to see about creating a plaque to commemorate his service/life, an SAR/DAR sort of thing....
I believe Mary Raker (d. 1850) is not buried there, but rather in North Wales. Her second married name would actually have been "Shive", but she was listed as Knipe in the death records, which is a puzzle....She married the younger brother of a soldier in Martin's Revolutionary War unit, David Knipe who was from Montgomery County. (as the youngest son, he was the only one of the family who didn't serve).
Thomas Kenderdine I went to Horsham Friends Cemetery this afternoon & was met by a woman who had records of those listed in cemetery. While there were some Kinderdines there was no Thomas d. 1779 or even close. She suggested he might be at Abington Friends Meeting cemetery. There were sort of a "Mother Meeting"
RE: Thomas J. Franklin In addition to the husband/wife marker I posted a photo of, there was also a military marker for Thomas. Unfortunately, the light was such that my photos of it did not come out very well. I'll do what I can with them and post them, then try to get a better photo in the future.
