Bio and Links
I'm looking to gather information for my family tree on Ancestry.com.

I'm a descendant from these lines: Jacobs, Holtzberger, Enders, Kautz/Kantz, Wert/Wirt, Forney, Cassel, Warner, Fetterhoff, Benner, Snyder, Kratzer/Kreitzer, and Reed.

Right now, I'm just looking to make sure that members of my family have all of their proper links and connections. I find that it makes it easier to trace ancestry records this way.

If we share a common ancestor, please let me know! If I manage a memorial that is more closely related to you, I will gladly transfer it!

RE: Mildred Mills & Jacobs family
They do not have a record of these burials in the cemetery. He said that sometimes older burials were made for children without a record and the stones are neglected or just wear more quickly than others.
Sorry I could not help you.
I have experienced the same problem with some of my ancestors in Lancaster County

William J. Jacobs and Mary Margaret (Bolze) Jacobs
Alicia,

If you wish to transfer the care of the site to me, I will take it and do some updating and additional information. The next time I get to St. Peter's cemetery (a few times a year) I will get a photo of the John Calvin Jacobs memorial stop to include. I can add family photos too, of those I have.

Where was the Edward Walter Jacobs (1880 - 1978)* you have listed raised?

Best Regards,

Tom Armstrong

Perhaps Incorrect Information Jacobs, St. Peter's Cemetery
My grandfather William John Jacobs had an older brother Henry B. Jacobs, and two sisters that died in infancy. The graves and marker for John Calvin Jacobs, Mary Olive (Wagner) Jacobs and the two infant girls are also in the St. Peter's cemetery. I know because I visited it many times with my grandfather William J. Jacobs. Henry Jacobs is buried in the Philadelphia area. I have no knowledge of Edward Walter Jacobs (1880 - 1978. My grandfather Jacobs had cousins, and perhaps Edward Walter Jacobs was one. The children of Edward Walter Jacobs, esp. Francis and Mildred sound like cousins of my grandfather's. I remember those names from family chat.
Frances M Jacobs Zarker (1904 - 1991)*
Mildred C. Jacobs Mills (1908 - 1940)*
Harold Edward Jacobs (1913 - 1998)*
Melvin L Jacobs (1916 - 1917)*

I can ask my mom what she thinks.

Jacobs Ancestory
It looks like you have my great grandfather John Calvin Jacobs and wife Mary Olive (Wagner) Jacobs as ancestors. I have photos of them if you wish we can find a way to share the information I have and photos. My mother Sara M. (Jacobs) Armstrong remembers her grandfather John Calvin Jacobs very well. Sara turns 90 April 9. We are having a party for her at Warm Springs Lodge, Spring Township, Perry County PA on 5 April.

I hope to hear from you.

Horace's birth certificate.
Here's the url for Horace's birth certificate, which confirms (as do other documents) he definitely was one and the same Horace as my relative who died in 1961, as the birth date perfectly matches (month and day, with year off by just one year between the two documents, which of course year discrepancies is routine par for the course in genealogy) on both documents:

Horace's 1961 death certificate.
I don't know whether this will work, posting the url here. If, hopefully, it does, here's Horace's 1961 State of DE death certificate:

PS
I just found, in PA, the Horace and Bessie Knowles couple you mentioned being in the 1940 census. While that could well be the Horace who was in my family tree, I'm not feeling entirely confident, as I don't get the feeling about him that he'd have been a building and loans adjuster type. (He seems to have normally been a carpenter or otherwise in construction, which also is what his 1961 death certificate indicated for him.) That having been said, no other Horace in the 1940 census seems like an obvious BETTER match for the one who was my relative. So, that well may have been him. Dave
