My great-grandmother, Sarah Hammes, was from Cressona, Schuylkill Haven area. She moved to Philadelphia in the early 1900's with at least 4-5 children - Harven, Samuel, Alfred and Margaret (Roxborough-Manayunk area). She is buried in Leverington Cemetary. It is unknown whether her husband died, or wheter he left her. My grandfather was Samuel Adolph Hammes, and my father was John C. Hammes (born 1923, died 1970). My cousin and I traveled to Cressona to try to find out more about the family several years ago, searching church records, cemetaries, etc. Hope you can help.
