+Josiah Berkey bio shows “Sadoris” as “Ledoris” and says that William Berkey married Catherine Maurer.  Caroline did have a sister Catherine, but Jeremiah Maurer’s bio says that Catherine married Samuel Stufft.

*It’s uncertain which, if any, of these are J & E’s children, but they are interred in Lot #1 with them, IOOF Cemetery, Stoystown. They’re probably from the next generation. Could the undated one have died in infancy? Also, some historians list Daniel and Jonathan. Could these have been first or middle names commonly used?
