Grave findings ...

For the past year I entered a lot of data about the Staub Family Tree and am ready to do some in-depth research into the Staub ancestors - verifying Census data, church records, and land deeds.  Before I begin the next leg of my research journey, I needed a break.  So I started digging through files and family genealogy books to learn about the Wilt family tree. 

The story about Ephraim Wilt, grandfather to Helen Elizabeth Wilt, continues.  To read more on the Wilt History, click here to open and continue to read the story on Ephraim and his life. 

This headstone was found at the Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Littlestown, PA.   The monument marks the grave site for Ephraim, his wife Mary, and sons George and Isaac. 

George W. Wilt, son to Ephraim and Mary, is propped up against the larger monument.  All of the four headstones are broken off the footer and in bad condition.
