|Bio and Links|
Very few of the people who have ever lived ever show up in the history books. It is mostly through genealogy and websites like this that they are ever remembered.|
While any picture is better than no picture please avoid the temptation to post a picture of a grave marker that isn't better than the picture(s) already on a memorial simply because you took a picture. Pictures that are dark, taken at goofy angles, blurred, too far away, clip the tombstone/inscription or otherwise unreadable don't really help and shouldn't be posted.

|Randy Hall||RE: William and Caroline Petry|
The PA death certificate for Caroline Louisa Brophy (nee Petry) #27682, lists her father as William Petry and her mother as Emma Blaber. Information was provided by her son, J. Alfred Hurst.
William D. Petry's death certificate, #94766, lists his father as William Petry and his mother as Emma Folk. Information provided by his oldest son, John C. Petry.
William D. Petry is my great grandfather. You may remember my grandmother, Anna Eckert. She knew the family history going back 4 generations. Emma Blaber was a servant living in the Petry household. In fact, you will find her in the 1850 and 1860 census records for West Brunswick twp. listed in Jacob Petry, SR.'s (sp.Patery)household; listed as "Mary" in 1850 and "Emmaline" in 1860. I believe that Emma (Blaber) Folks mother is the 49 yr. old Mary Petry listed in the 1860 census.
In fact, the information on Emma Folk's death certificate, #98308, was provided by the father of these two individuals, William Petry, who died 8 years after she did.
|Charleen||Thanks for the Transfer|
I am honored that you transferred my mom and dad's memorials to me. Thank you so much for your heartfelt consideration. It means a lot to me.
I've read all those emails re: Joseph Bane who is interred at Buckingham Cemetery. My family and I have been very involved with the Buckingham Cemetery Association for many years. In fact, my grandmother was a Bane (Minerva Jane Bane Bennett (Mickey)) who is also interred at the cemetery. I have very little history on the Bane's and Bennett's. Currently, I am researching my mom's family from Italy and Germany. Fact, not fiction, is extremely important when tracing family history.
Keep maintaining the memorial as I believe you have an objective perspective based on fact rather than speculation. You're doing a great service!

|Mosslady||RE: Luther and Mabel Reed|
The Rieth/Reed/Reid family is a challenge and I was thinking the same thing!

Could you incorporate the parents with the memorial of Helena "Helen" Rebecca (Mohn) Moyer (Memorial #171315636)? They were Henry Mohn (Memorial #72914005) and Eliza (Fehr) Mohn (Memorial #72914022). Thanks.

|Tim DeBinder||DeBinder cemetery and church|
Hi my name is Timothy DeBinder I'm 52 years old, one day a long time ago my uncle said to me that our ancestors used to live there are around that area. I grew up with a uncommon last name cause there is not a lot of our last name around cause i have not ran into another DeBinder and I been to a lot of places. But never to where this grave yard. Are the church, cause i never knew it even exists. So now I know it does but I Dont have any money are funds to go there cause I'm on a fixed income but would really want to see and visit there.

|Kathy (Hoy) Eltiste||Re: Charles B. &;Maria Elizabeth (Repp) Miller|
Thank you for entrusting me with Charles & Maria Elizabeth Miller's memorials. Am actively working on this family, and also requested any existing tomb stone pics on both of them. But, am not expecting any takers until spring. :)
Hope your Christmas was full of love, laughter and family, and wishing you all the best that 2017 has to offer.
