Harnley/Longnecker cemetery
My ancestor, Daniel Blocher, was buried on 22 Mar 1912 in "Hernley Cemetery" (according to his PA death certificate. Place of death is Penn Township. Undertakers address was Penryn.
I cannot locate a "Hernley Cemetery" however I note that you have memorials in "Harnley/Longnecker" cemetery. Do you think this could be the same cemetery? I know you don't have a memorial for any Blocher family for this cemetery, but possible his grave was unmarked? Thank you for any light you can shed!

Is the photo you posted on Find A Grave of him working at Hamilton Watch Co. the Harold that is married to Thelma or is it their son, Harold. Thank you for your help. Is it alright with you to use photos you have posted on my family tree at Ancestry.

Alvin D. White Memorial Correction
Hi! I am a grand-daughter of Alvin D. White (buried at Jerusalem Lutheran Cemetery in Rothsville, PA). I noticed that the memorial has his death date as Sept. 31...and it should be Oct. 31. I thought perhaps you could correct that.

Thanks so much for all of your research!

Metzger Graveyard
Good afternoon,
I was wondering how you obtained access to the Metzger Graveyard in Middletown, Dauphin Co., PA. I would like to visit the graveyard this fall after some of the plants die back.

Re the parentage of Michael Bitzer.
I have a copy of his father's, John Bitzer's, will (it is also online at the LDS site). In the will, written by John Bitzer on July 11, 1809 and proved March 7, 1810 (John Jr being executor), he gives the name of his wife and 10 of his 11 children. They are as follows:

wife - Eve

6 sons: Michael, Martin, Andrew, John Jr. and the 2 youngest Solomon (and unfortunately he doesn't give the name of his other young son).

5 daughters: Ann Maria intermarried with Abraham Sweigart; Catharine intermarried with Martin Werntz; Sybilla intermarried with John Sweigart; Mary intermarried with 2nd husband Philip Sherck (her first husband was George Werntz and her 2 sons by George were sons George and William - all mentioned in the lengthy will); Barbara (deceased) and no surname given - mentions that there are 3 children of hers and also mentions that she had a 'love daughter'.

This is all easily verified if you read the online will, written in english and signed by John Bitzer (signed properly, no 'x' for his mark).

Therefore, it is proven that Michael Bitzer's parents were indeed John and Eve Bitzer and I would appreciate your linking him to his parents as the Bitzers are my husband's family. Thank you.

RE: John Bitzer (151039642)
He was affiliated with that church & no other as far as I can tell. In those early years, most people were buried at their church. Plus he has family & descendants buried there. Never got around to contacting the church to ask but feel very strongly that he is buried there. Wouldn't make sense for him to be buried elsewhere. So I have everything that points to him being buried there, just nothing in black & white saying he's there. If I find he's elsewhere for sure, I'll make necessary changes. I haven't looked at my Bitzer info for awhile but something in it should say something about his burial or proof of it in Trinity.
