Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Craig's Irish Settlement, the oldest settlement, church, and cemetery in Northampton County, PA. in 1728, 15 brave families lived here along with Lenape Indians. The settlers founded the towns of Bath and Northampton. They also settled East Allen and Allen Townships.

I started a restoration project on the abandoned cemetery and started a historical society, both with the help of the community. We are in our 9th year of restoration, maintenance, and research. We have identified the names on every tombstone. We have a list of people by rows and a list by alphabet. If you have family here at Horner's Cemetery and/or would like a tour, please contact us. We would love to talk with you.

I am also Regent of the Bethlehem PA Chapter DAR. If you are interested in joining DAR, please contact me.

My genealogical research includes the names: Arndt, Creyer, Danner, Diehl, Gaumers, Huber, Kerns, Knauss, Mantz, Moser, Silfies, Spengler, and some names in Horner's Cemetery.

I received your request to add information to his bio section. I will add information that does not have "living" persons names in the information supplied per Find A grave guidelines which I agree with too. I do not add obituaries for this reason unless they are very old.

The plot location I listed comes from the Plainfield Cemetery records and the map that is listed from those records that was drawn. This allows anyone to find the location or section they are buried in at Plainfield. The plot location the military records have listed would not correspond to anything from this map and not allow anyone to find his grave. I have been to Plainfield many times and know this as fact.

RE: Gertie Diehl
Yes I took you to the cemeteries and we finished just before it rained. Found another relative who wants to come to the reunion this August. Her grandfather is James Diehl and until she met me she didn't know he had a twin sister. The Diehl book doesn't have much info on James because they moved to Arkansas. I know I for one am interested in getting information on that branch.
And yes, I would love to look at your photos. I know Norm especially would be interested. My email is
Thank you Peggy for your time.

RE: Elizabeth Hudders Clyde
Hi Peggy. The probate is on Ancestry, for 'John Clyd' (w/o the 'e'), dated 22 Oct 1825, Northampton, Pennsylvania. It mentions his 'Daughter Elizabeth Hudders' on the first page, as well as his other children and their spouses (names). Thanks for asking. - Greg

Peggy, I uploaded some photos of Ella. I believe the photo of the couple that you had provided on Ella's memorial is actually one of Sabina (Mantz) and Ira Kern (my great-grandparents).

RE: McNair Family
Hi Peggy, I read your message. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with Grayson McNair. Is he related to John and Christiana McNair? I haven't started any research on the offspring of John and Christiana. No, I'm not locale. I live in Central Illinois. Larry J. McNair

Below is what I have on Hannah
Birth: 1680

Death: 1750 (70)
Warrington, Bucks, Pennsylvania, United States
Immediate Family:
Daughter of Father and Mother NN
Wife of William Walker, I
Mother of Christiana Walker; William W Walker, II; Robert Walker; Richard Walker; Mary Ann King; John Walker and Ebenezer Walker

Her husband William

Ulster, Donegal, Ireland
Death: June 28, 1738 (73)

They were the root to the family of Walkers that founded the Walker winery in Grimsby Township, Lincoln Co, Ontario, Canada William Walker his grandson. Who was Gr Gr Aunt Hannah Trotter Walkers grandfather in law. I'd love to touch base with you to see if what I have is correct and maybe collaborate with you on the rest. I have also been working on for the past month a Issac M Singers (The sewing machine inventor)children. His daughter Alice M Lagrove her son Eugene W La Grove wife's Iva L (Moore) La Grove sister Minnie A. (Moore) Walker by way of Issac singers Mother Ruth Benson Singer and her father Joel and after it does some twists and turns it ends up at Thomas Jefferson Walker Williams son Adams uncle.

This Walker branch starts with Francis Walker and Catherine Walker who came from England, United Kingdom both born about 1720 and died in Prince George's County, Maryland, United States on or about 1770 or later in the case of Catherine
they had 10 children. As you get closer to now or between 1900 to present. Their XX grandchildren were very heavy in Washington and there is a link with FDR'S right hand man and even the Hope diamond on part of the branches. Anyway if you know more about my Aunts family let me know.

Thank you - Nicholas Saeger
Hi Peggy,
Thank you so much for the transfer of Nicholas Saeger. I am very appreciative for the memorial and photo ! I read your bio and am impressed by the work that you and others have done in the abandoned cemetery. There are several cemeteries near me that are no longer managed and have now become badly overgrown and subject to vandalism. Many graves are missing markers or they are sold old that the engravings are virtually gone.
Its too big of a project for me to take on right now, but if I ever do tackle something like that, I will have to contact you for pointers and advice. Thank you for all that you are doing to ensure our ancestors are located and documented !

God's blessings to you!
~ Valletta
