RE: Joseph Altvater 43110160
The Renovo Record, Renovo, PA., Fri., Feb. 5, 1909, p. 1.
Charles Altvater Sr Died at Philadelphia Tuesday.
Charles Altvater Sr., of this place, aged 75 years died in the German hospital at Philadelphia of pneumonia, after an illness of several months. His many Renovo friends will be pained to learn of his death. Deceased was one of our best known and highly respected citizens. He was a consistent member of the Zion Ev. Lutheran church and also a member of the choir of that church.
Mr. Altvater was born in Germany and came to this country at the age of 15 years. He came to Renovo in 1870 and was employed in the P.R.R. Co.’s shops until five years ago, when he was retired on account of the age limit.
The following children survive, George H., and Mrs. C. A. Uhler of this place, Otto B. of Indianapolis, Chas. P. of Sunbury, Sister Louise of the German Hospital and Mrs. Lena Barrigan, both of Philadelphia.
His remains will be brought here Friday and the time of the funeral will be announced tomorrow.

(Needless to say, the Renovo Record, did not have a “tomorrow” issue, this paper was a weekly issue, and it wasn’t in the next issue, but was also in the following paper). One says 5 children and other says 4.

The Clinton Republican, Lock Haven, PA, Wed., Feb. 10, 1909.
Charles Altvater, one of the pioneer citizens of this section, answered the final summons of the grim reaper at the German hospital, Philadelphia, Tuesday evening after a brief illness of pneumonia. Mr. Altvater came to Renovo when it was naught but a village and was one of the staunchest adherents to home upbuilding, and by constant work, aided materially in making Renovo and South Renovo what they are today. He was employed for many years in the Pennsylvania shops at this place but was retired several years ago, having reached the age limit. During his residence in South Renovo he served as chief burgess, councilman and school director. He was gentleman in every sense and was loyal to his friends at all times, making him a man whose friendship was highly prized. He is survived by two sons and two daughters. The remains were brought to this place and interment will be made in the Fairview cemetery.

Fairview Cemetery, Farwell, PA
13.6.1 Altvater Charles, age 75.3.6, Father, died 02-02-1902 (error of date in book or headstone reads that?)
13.6.1 Altvater Pauline F. E., age 53.11.16, Mother, died 5-9-1892

St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Drury’s Run, Renovo, PA
5.18.2 Altvater Joseph, age 4 mos., died 09-04-1901

Joseph Altvater 43110160
You can have this obituary for your baby Joseph, I'm sure it goes to him. I will delete the memorial I create with it so you can add it to yours. Says he was buried at Drurys Run (In Clinton County, PA) that is St. Joseph's Cemetery, RENOVO, Not the HYNER one, since there are 2 St Joseph's. The Renovo one was always considered the Drurys Run one.
For Pauline's obituary I will send an edit to show you which Fairview Cemetery that would have been.

The Renovo Record, Renovo, Clinton County, PA, Fri., Sept. 11, 1891.
Altvater – In this place, on the 4th inst., infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Altvater, aged 4 months. The remains were buried in Drurys Run cemetery, Sunday.

Are we related?
I saw where you are the current memorial manager for a couple of my ancestors & wondering if we are related? The memorials are #35767358, Capt. Barney Ingle and #8045183, David Sidney Ingle.

Capt Barney was my GR-GR-GR-GR-GR Grandfather & David Ingle, Capt. B's son, was my GR-GR-GR-GR Grandfather.

Alice Bryan
Hi Allen,

Though there was a note previously made about no headstone, I walked the New Hope Cemetery twice and could not find a marker of headstone for Alice Bryan. Please make a note on her memorial that it is unmarked.

RE: Coppess Cemetery
You are Welcome! That is what I've been doing for the past few weeks, my cousin is here from Florida and we've been going to all these old cemeteries looking for his family. It really feels special to go to the little towns and cemeteries where your ancestors lived.

Take care,
