Bio Photo Any memorial that I am not related to will be gladly transferred following FAG guidelines.

These families are of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Currently I am the Family Historian
for the "Brubaker Families of America."

Also the Rankin/Renkin families of Pennsylvania.
And my father's family HOGARTH and MOTLEY are in the Philadelphia area, and Lancaster & Schuylkill Counties.
Now researching the DUNSTER family of New York.

I've been recording names as I go, so I can help the next person looking for that missing family member.

Any corrections or missing information you would like me to add, just forward it on to me.

I see you listed information for some of the Pautz family. Jacob and Susan are listed with three children...Henry, William, and Mary. but on an 1880 census, they also have a son Samuel listed (born around 1870) Do you have any information on him??

I was wondering you knew if Danielís mother, Elisabeth Dorothy Sing, was buried in the family plot. She would have died between 1870-1880. I have been trying to contact the cemetery directly to ask, but the phone number is out of service and they do not respond to the online submission forms.

Any information that you might have would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks very much,

Maria Koehler Ziegler
You have added a photo to Maria Koehler Ziegler's memorial page, #94504979. The burial is listed as unknown. Do you happen to know which cemetery you took the photo in? Her husband, Johannes Oberholtzer Ziegler was buried in Lower Skippack Mennonite Cemetery, Skippack, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, USA. I can read that she was born May 19, 1805, and died August 5, 18?? (perhaps 18_5), aged ?? years, 2 months and 17 days. Can you decipher the date?

Garwood Detweiler
I was wondering if you could post a photo of the headstone for Valentine (#30461209), Emma (#30461220) & Garwood Detweiler on Garwood's memorial page #160279607? You already have it on his parent's memorial pages.

father of Catherine Ruth Rickert

I was wondering if you had any contacts with the Ruth family that might lead me to the father of Catherine "Katie" Ruth Rickert, wife of Abraham Rickert and Isaac Rickert. My sources indicate that her parents are named Isaac and Catherine or Christian and Barbara. Isaac and Christian are both sons of Henry Ruth.

I notice that you are a researcher in Lancaster County, PA. and listed the Nissley family in Manheim Township or Hempfield Township which I'm trying to find out more about. I have Maria Nissley who married Christian Musser and her parents Martin Nissley and Barbara Stauffer.
