Hannah Bender memorial no # 42184055
March 25, 2017 emailing inquiry to RCM on findagrave for Hanna Bender 1800 -1828
Find a grave - RCM
I am working on the Bender family lines. I think there is a possible mistake on the findagrave memorial for Hannah Bender memorial no # 42184055 made 20 Sep 2009. The photo is correct but the parents are not.
I have a birth and baptism record information for a Hanna Bender.
Butler Twp, Adams County, Pennsylvania
Evangelical Lutheran and Reformed Congregations 1780 - 1800
Page 63
Hanna of Henrich Bender and Katharina, b. May 17, 1800, bapt. June 8, 1800, Sponsors: Henrich Schneider and Anna Maria
I have her father as John Henry Bender born 24 Nov 1862 and died 10 May 1843. Find A Grave Memorial# 77890371; Created by: Denise Phillips - 9 Oct 2011.
And the mother as Catharine born 31 Jul 1766 and died 26 Feb 1844. The information I have on this Catharine is: Pennsylvania and New Jersey, Church and Town Records, 1708-1985 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations, Inc., 2011. ;Historical Society of Pennsylvania; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Collection Name: Historic Pennsylvania Church and Town Records; Reel: 672 ; Page 218
Name: Catherine Bender
Birth Date: abt 1767
Event Type: Death
Death Date: abt 1844
Death Place: York Springs, Adams, Pennsylvania, USA
Age at Death: 77
Burial Date: Feb 1844
Burial Place: York Springs, Adams, Pennsylvania
Denomination: Lutheran
Organization Name: Holy Trinity Lutheran
Page 218
date - Feb
name - Catherine Bender
age - 77y 6m 26d
cause - old age
burial place - Bend Ch.

I do not see a findagrave memorial for this Catharine married to John Henry Bender, but there are many references to her and she is the mother of Hanna Bender born in 1800 from the church records.
Is there a way you can look into this and if you deem that I have the correct information, move Hanna Bender memorial # 42184055 from her current parents and siblings and put her under her father John Henry Bender # 77890371?
This is a difficult group of people to get correct. I think I have the information correct on this Hanna Bender. Can you help me out?
Thank you,
Narda Foust

Would you please copy and apply your photo of James Halbert (92350261) to his wife Henrietta Halbert (88131501), as her name appears faintly on the lower part of his stone. Your photo is far better than mine with the flag and military marker.
Many thanks!

Hannah Bender - Memorial# 42184055
Hello RCM,
You ask for sourcing, Yes sorry about that. THe birth and baptism records are in the printed copy of Pennsylvania Church records - Adams county of the 18th century. Butler Twp, Adams County, Pennsylvania; Evangelical Lutheran and Reformed Congregations 1780 - 1800; Page 63

Hannah Bender 1800 -1828
Hello RCM,
I am working on my Bender ancestors of which you have taken many photos of their gravestones. I think I may have come across an error. You have Hanna Bender, Memorial# 42184055, linked to John Bender and Catherine as her parents, but I have her birth and baptismal records and they list her parents as Henry Bender and Catherine. John Bender and Catharine Schenerr also had a daughter by the name of Hanna but this is not her.
The correct line for Hannah born 17 May 1800,in Butler twp, Adams County, Penn, baptized on 8 Jun 1800 and died 14 Feb 1828 would be John Henry Bender Memorial# 77890371, and mother Catharine who was born 31 Jul 1766 and died 26 Feb 1844. That is according to the cemetery records I have for the Bender's Lutheran Church Cemetery.
If there is any ways you could make the change that would be most appreciated.
