|Bio and Links|
I am a Pennsylvania native whose first immigrant families were among the earliest settlers of Penn's Woods. My first German ancestors were Krefelders, arriving in Philadelphia aboard the Concord in 1683 and other later ships. They were followed by my original Irish ancestors from County Donegal in the mid-1700s. Coincidentally, all of my great-grandparents and grandparents would grow up in the Germantown, West Philadelphia and Frankford sections of the city, some within blocks of each other. My parents grew up on the outskirts, and they raised us in the and then raised us in the Montgomery and Bucks County suburbs. |
I am the one who traveled. Serving our nation for 20 years on active duty as an Army officer, and then another decade as a defense contractor, I came home to PA and retired in Lancaster County. Now, I work locally in the renewable energy and sustainability sector, and I am active in the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, MOAA, the VFW, and also St Peter's Lutheran Church.
My sons and grandchildren live in Denver, Colorado, and my daughters live here in Lancaster County. My parents and siblings, and their families, live in Bucks, Montgomery and Northampton Counties.
Through the collaborative efforts of many family members, close and distant, in sharing original sources, and ultimately contributing DNA for analysis, we have opened doors we did not know existed. Our efforts continue to chart a fascinating, revealing, surprising, and rewarding journey.

|Billy Walker||Corp. John Rock Memorial# 55503591|
Thank you for finding and posting the picture of Corp. John Rock's tombstone in the Lancaster Cemetery. Could you tell if this was an actual grave marker or a cenotaph erected by the family to honor his memory? His military biography says he was killed or taken prisoner in Virginia and never heard from again. The inscription is hard to make out in the photograph. Thank you again for all your effort -and for being a findagrave volunteer, I am very happy to see the tombstone!

Thank you for taking and adding the photo!
Thank you for answering my request for a photo of the stone of Marks/Max Bealler. I really appreciate it. It is a shame that the stone has deteriorated so much.
Best Regards from Germany,

|Sandy Triem||RE: Old Newton Friends Burial Ground|
Our emails are crossing - Many thanks for this information. I know Camden County HS has some information about the cemetery, but it makes perfect sense that Gloucester County HS would as well.
|Shivs||RE: Newton Burying Ground|
i have sent in a few corrections for address correction ... i have been to the W. Collingswood cemetery but i think the other address is for another Newton cemetery but people just assume they are the same ones
i have been looking up Shivers and relatives ... do you live in the area? ... if not, i have taken some pictures and can others if you need them.
many tombstones are not readable
