Would appreciate hearing from anyone having any info on the Bower family of Myerstown. Henry Bower, born in 1792, was a doctor and died about 1841. His son William was also a doctor, born in 1817, and started practicing in Myerstown about 1836. He had 6 children, three of whom were doctors and one a pharmacist (Henry, Gibson, William and Addison). I believe all four practiced in or around Myerstown in the mid-1800's.

HiIn my research of my family I found my g,great grandfather, Alfred Corl mustered in the Union Army in Annville. He also must have mustered out at the same place.
My home town, Marysville, Perry county, Pa is where he settled at I think the formation of the town in 1866. Since he joined the service in Annville I'm hoping he lived in the area before joining up.
He is now resting in Marysville bt I would like to trace his parents.
Any help would be appreciated also any body who has a lost relative in Perry county drop me a line and I'll see what I can do.

Seeking baptism and marriage records of children of Peter ADAM (ca 1770 - bef 1850) and Elizabeth LICHTY (1775-after 1850) who were married in Exeter, Berks Co, PA in 1799 by Rev BOOS. Rev.

They removed to Heidelburg, Lebanon Co. by 1811 where a son, Edward, was born.
Their eldest son, Samuel, married a Catharine _____ about 1820-1825. Children: Elizabeth b: 1825 (Mrs. Peter Achenbach), Petrus / Peter b: 1829 (m: Hannah Reed), George b: ca 1834 ... and possibly others.

In a letter, he says he attended Professor Klug's Academy as a young child. There was a Morvaian Academy run by a Mr. & Mrs. Klug listed in a history of Lancaster County but not Lebanon. I contacted the Morvaian Church in Lancaster and they had no information and no records.
Does anyone know of a Professor Klug's Academy in Lebanon during the 1830's or 40's?
Anyone know of any other great sources in Lebanon that might lead me to my great-great-great grandparents? I've even tried looking the 1840 census for any Smith in the county with a boy about 10 yrs old. (Only head of households were listed) I found several with children the right age but don't know where to go from there. Daniel Boone was out of the house by 1850.

Mrs. Sarah Beckley, who is better known among the relatives as "Aunty." The meeting between the western brothers, who have not been here for 36 years, and their relatives was a very affectionate one and many pleasant reminiscences were related. At noon the party was entertained at an elegant dinner prepared by Mr. and Mrs. Frank P. Beckley and supper was enjoyed at the residence of ‘Squire Adam Beckley.

Seeking others researching the Karsnitz, Gerberich, and Fittig families of early Lebanon and Dauphin Counties. Ongoing research into the Bethel Moravian records has shown that my ancestor Henrich Karsnitz & his wife Catharine (nee Gerberich)had five children baptized there from 1803-1813. Supporting evidence suggests [but does not prove] that Catharine was the daughter of Johannes Gerberich & his wife Catharine (nee Fittig). These families lived in or near Fishing Creek at the time of the records.

Louisa Ritterspach and Peter Bertram (spelled Berdram in the record) were married 7 June 1844 at Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, Jonestown, Lebanon Co., PA. This is per the on-line LDS search site. Both were born in Germany (Bavaria for Louisa & probably also Peter). Louisa's parents were Nicholas & Christianna. The surname has been spelled many ways including Rittersbacher, Rittersbach, etc. & gradually evolving into Ritzbaugh/Ritzpaugh. By 1850 they (Peter & Louisa R. Bertram and Nicholas & Christianna Ritterspach & their other daughters) were living in Luzerne County, PA.As there was a German-born William Rittersbach (wife Elizabeth; children Charlotte & Jacob), living in Londonderry, Lebanon Co. in 1850 (per census), I'm wondering if there was a connection between these families or if there was anyone else from Germany in Lebanon Co. with a similar name. No matter how it's spelled, this is a pretty uncommon surname!

I am searching for anyone with information on the Strohman family from Lebanon County. Joseph Strohman travelled from York County around 1810 and started the Strohman family as it is known today. It was a rather large family with many members remaining in the county, particularly the city of Lebanon and North Annville, Swatara and Union Townships. Every Strohman today in Lebanon Co. can trace their history back to Joseph. I have much info on Joseph and many of the descendants but would be interested in finding out more.

I have an old cemetery on my farm that we are cleaning up. Some of the smaller head stones have been moved due to kids playing in the cemetery. I have done my best getting these stones back to were they belong, but my problem is this: I have several very small stones that only have initals on them, one in each corner. I have been told that they are foot stones to the larger headstones, is this true? Only one of the stones initals match the larger stones. I have also been told that these are headstones of babies which I believed to be true at first but have since found two headstones that belong to a 3 month old and a 15 day old. Can anyone help me figure this out? The headstones are from the 1830's to 1850's.Jill

While traveling in North Annville we were able to find the fenced grave site and memorial stone of John and Christian Blauch, imm. Berne Switzerland, 11/3/1750 on the ship Brotherhood.
Included in the geneology book that I have is a photo that states, "Christian Blauch Homestead Today". This would have been 21 years ago. Is the homestead still standing today? And if so, could I have directions to it? I don't want to bother the current owners if the house is still there. I would simply like to see where it is and maybe take a picture of it, with permission.
I am also confused about the burial site. Christian Blauch was buried on a tract of land he owned. But the homestead, where it appears they lived, was a fair distance away. Is this correct?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Seeking information on the First Reform Church of Lebanon Co., Pennsylvania. Perod of interest is the late 1870s and early 1880s. Preacher at this time was the Rev. Dr. F.W. Kremer. This church conducted services in both English and German.Questions:
My grandfather, Fred SHANER served with the Nat'l Guard in WW2. Supposedly the Guard was based in Indiantown Gap in Lebanon County PA. I am trying to find records and rosters of WW2 service for men from this armory. Can someone tell me if this information is available on line? Unfortunately, all I know about his WW2 service with the Nat'l Guard is that he was a Captain.
I am seeking a Samuel and Catharine ADAM(S) who were born about 1800/1801 and appear on the 1850 census in Millcreek Township in Lebanon ... but, I have zero idea where Millcreek was located .. the USGS can not find it.They have a Peter born 1830 and George born 1834 living with them .. an older woman Elizabeth age 75 (so 1775 birth) and a Richard ADAM age 34 (so 1816) in the next two houses. Richard has a large family including wife Margaret and children: Sarah, Anna, Jeremiah, Levi and John ranging in age from 9 to 1 years old.I am trying to determine if this Peter was the one who married a Hannah Reed on Jan 15, 1851 in Orwigsburg (have copy). They disappeared from Schuylkill County, had a son, Franklin, in 1852/53 and appeared in Wisconsin by the 1855 State Census where they stayed until Peter died in 1890. His obituary stated he was born 1830 in PA (great clues - ugh!) .. and I have been looking for him for 15 years.Any help would be appreciated.Bonita
Does anyone know if the Methodist Home at Cornwall, Lebanon County, PA, still exists? I am trying to trace the descendants of Rev. Arthur Charles JAMES, b. 11 March 1880 in Schuylkill County, PA, d. 2 June 1957 at the Methodist Home in Cornwall. In the tribute to him in the "Official Journal and Year Book of the Philadelphia Annual Conference of the Methodist Church", May 14-18, 1958, pp. 760-762, his mother, Caroline "Carrie" (GOUDTE) JAMES MACKEY (Mrs. Charles F. MACKEY) was a resident at the home at the age of 97. Carrie GOUDTE or GOUGE was born in MI of English immigrant parents. Arthur Charles and Bertha JAMES had one son, Arthur Charles JAMES, Jr. b. 1909. In 1958, the article mentioned the existence of two grandchildren (names not published), who would have been born about 1930-1940. My great grandfather, Philip FRANCIS, half-brother to Thomas JAMES, father of Arthur Charles JAMES, wrote about Tom, Carrie, and Arthur Charles, Sr., extensively in his autobiography that was published only for immediate family members. I am interested in contacting Arthur Charles JAMES' descendants to share family information that they probably do not have as well as find new half-cousins.
