Starting this week I’m starting a new photo series—Unknown Pennsylvanians. Amongst the photos I inherited from my maternal grandparents were a whole slew of photos of people that no one in the family can identify. Since none of them are labeled with names, I’m going to post them in a gallery here on my website […]
Horace Witmer, son of Edward J. and Lydia (Kline) Witmer, was born 21 Dec 1864 and died 5 Dec 1926. His wife, Mary A. C. (Breish) Witmer, was born 8 Jan 1870 and died 31 Mar 1944. They are buried in St. Paul’s Lutheran Church Cemetery, Red Hill, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
The back says: “Taken a week past Sunday when up. That is Roy [Rog] next door sitting on Crissie’s knee” and also “Peter Chrissie May Jessie & a little boy that always with May.”
Edward J. Witmer, son of John and Rachel (Jones?) Witmer, was born in Quakertown 13 Oct 1833 and died near Finland 24 Jan 1912. His wife, Lydia Amanda (Kline) Witmer, daughter of Philip and Lydia (Markly) Kline, was born 26 Mar 1836 near Pennsburg and died 30 Mar 1926 in Red Hill.
A photo taken at the Hocker hunting camp in Perry County, Pennsylvania circa 1924. I’m not completely certain of the folks in the photo, but I think it’s—Isabella (Smith) Hocker, Lillian (Leedy) Hocker, unknown teenager [possibly Lillian or Ethel Allen], Anna Hocker, William Hocker, Bonnie Hocker and Betty Jean Hocker.

He died 30 January 1877 and was buried in St. Paul’s Lutheran Church cemetery in Red Hill, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. He married Lydia Markly on 17 February 1825 in Faulkner Swamp Church in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
Lydia (Markly) Kline was born 22 October 1806 and died 8 April 1890 in Pennsylvania. She was buried in the St. Paul’s Lutheran Church cemetery in Red Hill, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

Today’s photo is the Charles and Caroline (Wolf) Greulich family of East Greenville, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The photo was taken circa 1887.
A gravestone photo of Daniel Edgar Hoover, only son of Reuben and Emma (Coleburn) Hoover, of Karthuas, Clearfield County, Pennsylvania, was born 16 Jul 1887 and died 11 Feb 1966.
