You probably have the information you need by now but I was wondering if you could share what you have on William H S Reitz. His son was Howard Blaine my great grandfather... the brother to your Catherine(Katie)May. I don't have much info on the Lauer family since my research didn't go in that direction. All I know is that Catherine M and Fred W Lauer are buried in the Odd Fellows Cemetery outside of Shamokin. I could make a trip to the Shamokin Library to take a look at the funeral home records to get some of the info you might need.
Thanks so much!
