William Schadt, b. 06-06-1866, Germany, came to America in 1850/52 and was 1st in New York City; 2nd Middletown, PA; 3rd in Lock Haven, PA. He married Rosa Ann Durr, b. Abt 1835, on June 17, 1850/56. Where the they were married is not known, nor has any Durr lineage connection been found. I have been to Germany, met cousins and visited the Lutheran church where William was baptized; however, there are no records of the marriage and no Durr families in the area. William died in Lock Haven, PA, April 17, 1914 and is buried at that place. Rosa Ann died from lockjaw April 4, 1870 at the same place. There is an account of her death in the local newspaper, but no record of her funeral or the place of interment. William may have taken her body to the New York City area, Middletown, PA or Lebanon, PA, for interment. I am offering a $100 reward to the first person who can find the burial place of Rosa Ann. Any other Schadt or Durr information would be appreciated.

I was recently in contact with Elisa Poole, who gave me you email address.I am interested in the Muddy Creek Reformed Church. I am working on my family tree and noticed that my immigrant ancestor Jeremias ZIEMER (many spellings) was supposedly one of 6 on the rules committee that organized the church. He signed the Muddy Church Doctrine May 19, 1743. He later transfered to the first church of Allegheny, becoming one of its charter members. Jeremias immigrated to America aboard the "Charming Nancy" through Rotterdam, landing in Philadelphia, Nov. 9, 1738 from the Palatinate. He also received a land grant from William Penn's son in 1745. He died in 1796. His wife's name was (Anna) Barbara SANDER, died 1787. I do not know if they were married in Germany or here. Also they had a son and two daughters that might have beed baptized at Muddy Creek. Their names were Anna Barbara ZIEMER, baptized March 8, 1746, ( I do not have birth and death dates.) She married Andrea Burkhart. Christina ZIEMER no dates, married Nicholas HOLLAR, no dates. And finally my direct descendant Johan Heinrich ZIEMER 1743-1822. He may have gone by John Henry also. Jeremais is thought to have had a second wife, Julianna HERTZ. There is an indenture between Jeremias and her in the Berks Deeds, vol.13, Pg. 314. What I would like is any information that you might have of these people, birth dated, baptism dates or anything that you might think I should have. I am willing to pay for the costs of copies. I do not live in the area, so I am unable to so the leg work my self. I would be more than happy to help you if I am able with my little amount of information that I have. Thank you for your time and help. Carol Banducci banducci@erie.net
