This Wordless Wednesday post features the gravestone of Catharina Schneider, a woman, I believe, to be Heinrich Schneider’s sister. Let me tell you why.
Ever since I discovered that Heinrich Schneider (aka Henry Snyder) of Upper Hanover Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania was the father of my 3x great grandfather Joseph Snyder, I’ve been on a mission to trace the family back further. I think I’m getting closer.
Now that FamilySearch has starting making Pennsylvania deed books available online, I was able to search for Jacob Wolf of Allentown in the indices. And guess what I found? The names of Jacob’s children.
Working to catch-up on my 52 Ancestors post, here’s one regarding my 4x great grandfather John Witmer of Milford Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
Perhaps not so surprisingly, I’ve fallen behind on my 52 ancestors posts. I’m hoping to catch up. Here’s a short post on Henry Jones to get me me going again.
This week’s ancestor is Godfrey Wißler. He is my five times great grandfather on my mother’s side.
I wrote a post about my ancestor Rachel Jones, wife of Jacob Witmer, back in 2014. I did not have information regarding her parents. At the time I postulated that Henry Jones was Rachel’s father, but I did not know the name of his wife. I’m still looking for evidence of who she was.
For week three of my 52 Ancestors in 52 weeks, I’m focusing on Lydia (Markley) Kline. Who were her parents?
Philip Kline (1799-1877) is the topic of week two’s 52 ancestors in 52 weeks. Just what do I know about him?
I’ve written before about my three times great grandfather Reverend Frederick Waage. However, I recently came across an article written about him by his son which provides more information regarding Rev. Waage’s early life.
