It’s Saturday again and this week I’m remembering my great great grandfather Henry D. Snyder of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
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.
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.

157 years ago Edward J. Witmer, son of John and Rachael (Jones) Witmer, married Lydia Amanda Kline, daughter of Philip and Lydia (Markly) Kline.
