I am looking for any Umholtz burials that can be found in Perry County.

14 of them are already listed on Find A Grave. So I am not looking for any of the following:

Shearer, Pauline J. Umholtz b. May 11, 1915 d. Jul. 22, 2002 - Bloomfield Cemetery, New Bloomfield

Umholtz, Amanda E. b. 1858 d. 1926 - Sheaffers Valley Church

Umholtz, Barbara JoAnn Markel b. Mar. 15, 1929 d. Jun. 9, 2007 - Saint Matthew Cemetery, Millerstown

Umholtz, Carl Eugene b. Dec. 27, 1924 d. Jan. 21, 1999 - Saint Matthew Cemetery, Millerstown

Umholtz, Charles C. b. unknown d. Apr. 13, 1882 - Sheaffers Valley Church

Umholtz, George b. unknown d. Mar. 2, 1855 - Sheaffers Valley Church

Umholtz, Harry Ellsworth, Jr b. Mar. 8, 1948 d. Aug. 6, 2003 Bloomfield Cemetery, New Bloomfield

Umholtz, J. Calvin b. 1854 d. 1924 - Sheaffers Valley Church

Umholtz, Maggie b. unknown d. Feb. 18, 1890 - Sheaffers Valley Church

Umholtz, Mary Ellen b. unknown d. Sep. 5, 1857 - Sheaffers Valley Church

Umholtz, Michael b. unknown d. Jan. 7, 1854 - Millerstown Memorial Cemetery

Umholtz, Ruth b. unknown d. Mar. 18, 1893 - Sheaffers Valley Church

Umholtz, Sarah R. b. May 3, 1838 d. Jan. 1, 1904 - Sheaffers Valley Church

Umholtz, William H. W. b. Jul. 30, 1843 d. Jun. 30, 1923 - Sheaffers Valley Church


There are three in particular I am trying to track down and they are as follows:

John Jacob Umholtz b. 1821 d. Abt 1900 (some claim 1854)
(According to Census data, he spent most of his life in the Tyrone township and Landisburg area.)

Elizabeth (Sauders/Saunders) Umholtz b. 1826 d. 1853
(First wife of John Jacob Umholtz)

Catherine (Weller) Umholtz b. c 1825 d. Bef. 1900?
(Second wife of John Jacob Umholtz)

There were some children that died young as well. So they may be buried with the parents.

But aside from these, I am interested in any other Umholtz burials in Perry County.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello there, are you still on this search?
I live in Perry County and descend from John Jacob Umholtz through his son William Henry Washington.
I can say that Michael Umholtz's grave in Millertown is a misprint or the headstone is missing. His daughter Rebecca Holtzapple's grave is there.
His son's, Michael Umholtz, father of John Jacob, grave is in Juniata County. Many of his children are buried in the graveyards west of Port Royal.
