Other Rodenberger Relatives in Philomath Cemetery

My previous post was about Elizabeth Rodenberger's grave at Philomath Cemetery in Union Co., Indiana.  Other family members are buried there as well.

Rachel Reasar.  October 9, 1813 - July 28, 1893.
     Rachel was the third child of Johannes "John" and Elizabeth Rodenberger.  She was born in Upper Milford Twp., Northampton Co, Pennsylvania.  She was baptized at Upper Milford Reformed Congregation on November 25, 1813 with Peter and Christine Hertzell as her sponsors .

Daniel Reasar.  Died September 20, 1857.  Aged 45 years, 4 months, 2 days.
     Rachel Rodenberger and Daniel were married February 25, 1834 in Wayne Co., Indiana

Elizabeth Reasar.  Daughter of D. and R. Reasar.  Died September 12, 1857.  Aged 18y, 8 m, 9d.
     Father and daughter died 8 days apart.

Ann M. Rodenberger, wife of John R. Rodenberger. Died February 19, 1847.  Aged 26y, 3m, 15d.
     Anna Maria Plankenhorn was the first wife of Johannes and Elizabeth's son John W. Rodenberger.  John, at some later date, shortened his surname to Rodenberg.  Both of Ann Maria's parents and possibly a brother are also buried at Philomath Cemetery.

Martin D. Rodenberger, son of John and Maria Rodenberger.  Died March 28, 1849.  Age 2 years.
     It is likely that his mother died at or near his birth.

Alvin Rodenberger, son of John W. and Maria Rodenberger. Died June 21, 1857. Aged 1yr, 21 days.
     Son of John W. and his second wife, Mariah Long Rodenberger.

Sarah Stanfer. Wife of Henry Stanfer.  Died September 12, 1853. Aged 20 yrs, 7 mo, 16dys.
     Sarah was the daughter of Johannes and Elizabeth Rodenberger.  Possibly child #10.  I believe her last name was actually Staufer based on Henry Staufer's 1907 obituary:
                  "In the year of 1850 he was married to Sarah Rodenbargar, and to them were born two       children, Helena McCashland, who lives near Abington, and the other dying in infancy at the time of its mother."

Phebe J. Rodenberger. Daughter of George and C. Rodenberger.  Died May 1, 1862.  Aged 11years 10months 3days.        George was the son born after John W. Rodenberger.  Both young men married Plankenhorn
sisters.   Phebe was one of 13 children and the only one not to reach adulthood.
