re: Martin Overholt/Overholtzer (PA)
My assumption of Martin being buried at Deep Run East, is based on Wilton Golson placing this memorial here. I didn't take many notes from Barbara Ford's 1995 book, but with her info and that information in Aj Frez's 1906 book "A Genealogical Record of the Descendants of William Nash" & Etc. included in his book "A Genealogical Record of the Descendants of Martin Oberholtzer" & etc., it would make sense that those families that did not travel west, would be buried here.

Keep in mind that many stones from that era have not survived, and since the surname is german sounding, it may have been subject to retribution. Though most Mennonites were against war, but supportive of rights of local authority over the somehwhat despotic rule of England, It would not be unusual for these graves to have been destroyed by those who are less respectful. Many battles have been fought over the grounds in the area of this cemetery, so even military action could have claimed some burial markers.

I know that FindAGraver 'essay' (user #47288952) did a fine job of locating exactly where Martin's son William was buried. I believe that she was attempting to do further research on Mennonite burials, but I believe that to be in an area that did not include eastern Pennsylvania.

My line: Martin>Rev. William>Lydia (OVEHOLT) GEISINGER>Sarah (GEISINGER) WILLIAMS> etc.
