Joseph Peter Henry Stineman-2nd marriage
He married Mary Ann Savitz on May 2, 1861. They had five children, Charles, Alice, Mary, Jacob and George. Church records show they were Moravian and lived in Bethlehem, Pa. Mary Ann died on March 26, 1886 and was buried on March 28 in Allentown, Pa. Joseph was my great grandfather. His son George W was my grandfather. My father lived with his aunts Mary and Alice in Philadelphia when he was a young adult and I remember my mother and father visiting them when I was a child. I read a post that spoke of Joseph returning to his father's home after a 2 year absence. Apparently, he returned after he learned of his brother Daniel's death. All the brothers had a falling out, over what I don't know. Joseph left and I suppose he married his 2nd wife. Also, according to records he married a 3rd time to Elizabeth (Lizzie) Frick. Lizzie and Joseph are buried together at the West Laurel Hill Cemetery, Bala Cynwyd, Montgomery County, Pa. Joseph's daughters Mary and Alice are buried at the same cemetery.
After quite a few years, when I first began to research my family history, I got back into it. There is just so much available online now. Years ago, my father had received a correspondence from a relative in South Fork, Pa, and it included a lot of history. I don't think my dad ever showed much interest and until I showed interest, it went untouched.
