Relatives of note:
A Virtual Cemetery created by: James Harry Lawrence
Description: Most of my relatives were common folk without distinction, like myself, but some were overachievers who strived beyond the workaday life. George Edward Pake, a Lawrence descendant, must have gotten most of his brains from his Pake ancestors. George Pake was brilliant. I've included my paternal 5th Great grandmother Elisabetha Reimer Shunk and her father "Fritz" because they were participants in what is called the "First Ghost Story in America?" which took place about 1732, in Pennsylvania. Besides, Fritz was a "Heck" of a farmer and father to eleven children, all of whom survived into adulthood, and most into their 80's. Basil Rathbone and his father are distant maternal cousins going back to our common Rathbone ancestors in Gawsworth, Cheshire, England. My 2nd Great grandmother Catharine Sweitzer Lawrence is my connection to the Civil War Sweitzer officers. My paternal 4th great grandfather Charles Kugler, was referred to as Dr. because of his knowledge. He was an inventor, millwright, innkeeper, real estate mogul, and swell Dad. I like to remember him for installing his own gas lighting system in Independence Hall in Philadelphia in 1818. My maternal 2nd great grandfather Thomas Harrop, though illiterate, owned his own silk weaving mill in Philadelphia. His success was cut short by pneumonia in 1867.Adam Zeltner was a paternal 8th great grandparent along with his 2nd wife Elisabeth Kulli as proven by Y Chromosome DNA testing. Adam was the third of my ancestors to die by beheading, his as a peoples' hero of Switzerland in 1653, while my paternal Hotz 8th great grandparents, Johannes and Anna were beheaded as witches Sept. 30, 1644 in Wertheim, Germany.
