|Bio and Links|
I have been working on my family tree for over 40 years. There are over 12,000 names in it, with the concentration on the names Bittenbender, Brensinger, Gery (or Geary), Rader (or Roeder) and Reichl. My point of reference centers around Berks and Lehigh counties in Pa., although it branches out, mostly in eastern Pa. I have one missing link...Jacob Bittenbender (born in 1815 and died in 1863) who was married to Sarah Wagner. If you ever find his tombstone or record of death PLEASE PLEASE let me know. I also printed a Bittenbender-Gery volume of my notes and it is available at the Schwenkfelder Library in E. Greenville, the Public Libraries in Allentown, Emmaus and Macungie, and the Kutztown University Heritage Center. I'm lways open to new or corrected info. Thanks.|

|Carol & David||Sarah Heimer 184191972|
I wanted to let you know I found Adam & Sarah "Hahn" Heimer in the old Plainfield records. She is in Section X-L of the middle section at Plainfield. This section is between the very old section and the start of the newer section of A. This section is not in great shape, actually worst then the old section so they may or may not have a stone anymore or one that is readable.The records are from readings done in the 1940's and I made copies from a book in the Marx Room at the Easton Library but have not added all the names from these copies because of errors I have found in names & dates after taking pictures of the stones.
She is listed as follows Sarah Heimer Aug. 27, 1813 - Nov. 19, 1874, w. of Adam (nee Hahn) Age 61.2.22. Section X-L
He is listed as follows in Section III-L: Adam Heimer Aug. 15, 1813 - Mar. 20, 1896, age 82.7.24. You will see from the age listed that the 24 days do not add up correctly, should be 5 days unless the day was read incorrectly. This is the type of problem we ran into when just adding the names from the transcripts. A lot of stones in this section are also affected by black mold.
I will check and see if I can locate their stones when I go to Plainfield next time.
|Carol & David||RE: Plainfield Cemetery|
Please don't delete your memorials because there are no gravestones for them, it doesn't mean they might not be buried there. I have relatives buried there with no gravestones yet church records list them buried at Plainfield.
There are many Heimers buried at Plainfield including Adam Heimer, 1761-1818 who was a Revolutionary War veteran according to the Pennsylvania veteran's burial cards and he had a gravestone. So it appears Heimers were buried there for some time.
I looked quickly to see if your Adam might have a will online but didn't see one. I don't live that far from the Easton Library and they have a great genealogy room. I can see if there are any records on Adam or his wife, Sarah. If I find anything on either one I will let you know.
It will probably be a week or so before I get to Plainfield to take Samuel Heimer's gravestone and get to library.
We am still working on taking photos of the newer stones in Plainfield Cemetery. It just takes time which I haven't had a lot of lately. I like to take the gravestones in the best light, not everyone cares about that but we do although some of our original photos were not that great.
What exactly is your relation to the Reitnauers, Zern, Schuler if any?
|Suzzette G Yandle||RE: Memorial for Wilson Wendling (1852-1915)|
Thank you for adding his obituary to his memorial.
I have a subscription to newspapers.com and read alot of newspaper articles to sort the obituaries out for surnames in my family tree. I try to share them with others and also try to link family members who are mentioned in the obituaries. Some memorial creators decline my offers.
I have also used a subscription to genealogybank.com for newspaper articles.
Hope this is helpful for you.
Thank you for the additions you have made to Find A Grave. I appreciate the work you do for the benefit of others.

|Kenneth Schaeffer||RE: John Matura|
Thank you. Linda Kehm is my cousin. Her mother was the sister of my mother.
|Kenneth Schaeffer||RE: Agnes (Tomasovic) Yandle|
As for the Matura-Tomasovic relationship, using DNA from Agnes Yandle which I than sent to Ancestry.com I was able to locate a daughter of John Matura who recently passed away. He and his then girlfriend gave a baby up for adoption 50 years ago. A match was found and they all reunited last year for the first time. So thrilled he had the chance to meet his daughter before he passed away.
|Mark Maxwell||David R Rohrbach|
Do you have the complete article on the Rohrbach clan gathering that you placed on David's memorial?
Can we get a scan for our "School Files" at the Roundhouse Museum?
I found a notice today in the 29DEC1949 issue of "The NEWS" of Egg Harbor City that announced the plans for his 75th birthday party on January 5th, and his obituary in his birth date issue in the newspaper holdings of the museum.
|kwerst||Catharine Reichl Worst|
Good Afternoon, Kitty,
I had contacted you before and you were most kind to answer. I recently began on my genealogy again. I was busy with other things for a long time. Right now I am interested in Catharine Reichl who was married to John Worst. Catharine was born in 1831. I think her father might be Jonas. She is buried at Huff's Church Cemetery along with her husband and several children. I was wondering if you have any information about Catharine since you have researched the Reichl's. This is my brick wall along with her husband, John Worst. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Kathy Werst
