Find a grave photo permission
I would like permission to download the photo you took of Rev Robert Kennedy, memorial # 49370577, at Welsh Run Presbyterian Cemetery for my personal file, full credit to you of course. I would also like permission for any other photo of my family that you also took that I might find.
I will use these photos in my personal genealogy database and to share with family members.
Thank you for all that you do,
Linda Futrell Rogers

Hello, I saw that you posted the grave of my gg grandmother, Jane Tyrol Wheeler buried at Saint Mark's Cemetery in Bristol, PA. I was wondering if you have a photo of the grave of her husband, John Wheeler. I would love to see it. I live in Virginia so am not able to do this myself. Thanks, Ashton Wheeler

Does Brodbeck or Brubeck sound familiar to you?
I saw this message again that you sent me a while back on FindAGrave which mentions that you're researching the Brubacher-Brubaker family in Lancaster and it made me think of my ancestors Anna Maria Brubeck (Brodbeck) and Gottfried Klugh. The names are a little similar and the place is the same. Gottfried's father Carl lived in downtown Lancaster and Gottfried and Anna Maria lived in Lancaster and later near Millersville. Gottfried and Anna Maria were buried in the Klugh family graveyard (headstones found in a field in the 1970s) and moved to Millersville Cemetery.

Have you seen either the Brodbeck or Brubeck spellings in your research?

1-Bernhard Brodbeck [164751] b. Abt 1730, d. Sep 1767, Lancaster County,
+Anna Maria [164752]

|--2-Anna Maria Brubeck [64460] b. 4 Apr 1764, , Lancaster County,
| Pennsylvania, d. 10 Nov 1814, Millersville, Lancaster County, PA
| +Godfried Klugh [102698] b. 3 Jan 1761, Lancaster, Lancaster Co., PA, m. 28
| Dec 1781, Lancaster, Lancaster Co., PA, d. 23 Nov 1825, Millersville,
| Lancaster Co., PA, par. Carl (Charles) Klugh [19] and Susanna Margareta
| Hohn [20]

I just found out a connection to the Ansel family. My Great grandfather, Jeremiah Snyder's brother, Milton had a daughter, Mary Ann who married a Stephen L. Ansel and had at least 5 children , Roy, Lillian, Charlotte, Violet and Alice. Another daughter, Anna Louisa Snyder had a son Daniel Keller who married a Cora Ansel.

Thank you for looking up the Ansel to see if they are related to the Snyders. My mother (from Reading) remembers visiting them in Reamstown. They were either very good friends or related in some way. The Snyders and Ansels are buried near each other. Thanks again for your help. At least I know they weren't related to Sophie. Do you remember any Snyders in the Ansel genealogy book?

I am looking for information about the Ansels that you had posted at Salem Union Cemetery in Reamstown PA. I'm trying to find the connection to the Snyder, also buried there. My mother remembers the Ansel name and visiting in Reamstown but not sure how related.
I'm thinking it may have been her grandmothers maiden name.
Sophie was married to Jeremiah Snyder. They were from Reamstown but moved to Reading PA.
Thank you

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??
