On day one of our trip, my parents and I stopped first at a cemetery and I found my favorite ancestor, Valentine Blitz. The next morning my parents, two of my aunts and I set out to find more ancestors and my Oma's birthday present. My aunt told her we were going "grave shopping". Who knows what went through her mind!
Our first stop once again was to a cemetery. This time it was Mount Carmel Cemetery in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. This cemetery is literally on the side of a mountain. Here we found my great great grandparents John J Eck and Theresa Bank, along with their daughter Irene, son Clyde and his first wife Margaret. (And I mean first wife Margaret because his second wife was also named Margaret).
We were in Williamsport for one more day before heading home. Guess where our first stop was on Tuesday.
