Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Jack Shatzer. I was born and raised in Southern Pennsylvania. Inspired by my Grandmother, many years ago, I have been continually working the family tree. I am a true Pennsylvania German. I am "Shatzer" - "Byers" - "Strike" on my father's side and "Peiffer" - "Sprenkle" - "Diehl" on my mother's side. These ancestors were mostly tenant farmers in Franklin and Adams County, PA.

Find-A-Grave has been a wonderful addition to my Genealogy interests. It has encouraged me to collect obituaries and old photographs from the family; then take on the challenge of finding and photographing their graves. Building memorials is the reward for all of this effort. I love it!

Find A Grave Changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page. Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

Dear Jack,

Thank you so much for adding pictures to my great grandmothers memorial and other relatives.
Your family was dearly loved by mine and I know my grandmother, Nellie, thought of them all as family. I remember going to the Pieffer reunions with her and especially your grandmother, as I visited her home many times.

RE: Ramona Martin
Thank you Jack for all you do. I know you do it with love and so I trust her memorial with you and we're cousins too!
I'll keep her memorial but just know if you want to keep the brothers and sisters together, I will be happy at anytime to transfer.
I was new on Find A Grave at the time of my request and didn't realize that she was your family too.

I had no idea that you were related to Ramona or I never would have asked you to transfer. If you want to keep the family together, please let me know and I will transfer her back to you. She is my grandmother but I see you have done a lot of work and don't want to break up the work you have done. Just let me know.

Jack, I have some Peiffers in my memorial additions for Norland Cemetery. If they are related to you and you would like a transfer, let me know. Here are there #'s:

108985441 Annie Peiffer
108985357 Henry Peiffer

There are 3 infants also, but I don't think they are related to Annie and Henry, not directly.

RE: Catharine
Dear Jack,
Thanks for the response. Solomon Strike was my great-granduncle, brother of my great-grandfather David Wilson Strike. Though I have no blood connection to his second wife, my curiousity got the best of me, so I did a little research. It appears that her oldest brother, Henry Alleman, migrated to Kansas, via Illinois, and was living near the area in which she is said to have died. A pretty bold move for the time, but both her parents were gone, too, so I guess Kansas was her "port-in-a-storm." Of course this is supposition, because it would be difficult to prove. Maybe someone will send you another note. Thanks again, Debbie

Catharine "Kate" Alleman Strike
I'm fascinated by the obit you posted to her memorial. How did she wind up in Kansas? Did she have a sibling there? Debbie Whaley
