RE: Hertkorn marriages
Hi Roz,

Here is what is in the civil records at ACHOR:

Husband: George Hertcorn, age 24, resident of Albany, born in Albany, occupation-stovemounter, son of Anthony and Caroline (her maiden name not shown) Hertcorn, single.
Wife: Annie Hohenstein, age 21, resident of Albany, born in Albany, daughter of John and Margaret (her maiden name not shown) Hohenstein, single. Married 8/11/1885 by J. F. Neef.

Husband: Jacob Hohenstein, age 27(?), resident of Albany, born in Albany, occupation-packer, son of John and Mary (Buene) Hohenstein, widower.
Wife Rosa Hertcorn, age 19, resident of Albany, born in Albany, daughter of Anton and Carolyn (Durkee) Hertcorn, single. Married 3/16/1886 by Theo. Dresel.

I just realized that Theo. Dresel was the pastor at the Evangelical Protestant Church. I will email you a copy of their record of the marriage shortly. (J. F. Neef was pastor at the 4th Reformed Church).

Finding these marriages for you made my trip to ACHOR worthwhile as the marriage I was looking for didn't turn up!

Hertkorn marriages
Hi Roz,

By amazing coincidence, I ran across marriage records at the Albany County Hall of Records for George Hertkorn (married Annie Hohenstein) and Rosa Hertkorn (married Jacob Hohenstein) and they seem to be the children of your Hertkorns. I copied down the information in case you are interested and I can post it here if you like. Just let me know if you need it.

RE: Carolina Denglar Hertkorn & Anton Hertkorn
Hi Roz,
Yes, I took the Hertkorn pictures along with one for Rosina Dengler who is on the same plot and you are very welcome for them. The lighting was poor for Rosina's, so perhaps if you visit, you can get a better picture to post for her stone. If not, I can try again another time. You will find these graves rather close to the front of the cemetery (easily in sight of the road) and probably about mid-way between the 2 driveways. Only Rosina's stone is standing.

(Just some thoughts about the fallen stones until you get a chance to see them for yourself: Anton's stone seems to be in excellent condition, but the base is partially buried and tilted out of position and it would probably need to be stabilized somehow to safely hold a stone this tall. Carolina's stone obviously needs repair or a redesigned base if it is to stand again.)

Volunteers have been working to clear a tremendous amount of overgrowth from this cemetery which has been badly neglected for many years.

Church death records show Carolina was born in Baden and was survived by 1 son and 2 daughters.

I am very pleased to be able to give you a Christmas gift!

RE: Carolina Denglar Hertkorn
That is great news!!! Congrats on finding them! They might have been face up in the brush and now they are visible due to the brush being cleared out. Thanks for letting me know :)

RE: Carolina Denglar Hertkorn
Thanks for the kind words :) Who knows, maybe we will run into each other one day in a cemetery :) Good luck finding the stone. When I was there last time they were clearing brush so possibly it is in that brush and exposed now... Merry Christmas to you too! :)

RE: Carolina Denglar Hertkorn
I am happy I can be of help. Happy Thanksgiving to you also! I didn't see that part that her inscription reads Mother. Possibly her stone doesn't have a name of date on it and it just reads mother. If that is the case, I will try to make it back the cemetery when I have a free moment and search this stated plot for a gravestone that says mother and snap a photograph for you. :)
