  1. This Colpetzer info is great, but now I'm puzzled as to why it's so different from what's posted on FindAGrave. For example, the Sarahs and Esthers are switched in the Rote family. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=71600301

    1. My only answer to that would be for you to contact PJR, the person that posted the findagave information and ask them what their sources are. As for me, I've listed the sources I've found (so far). An easy explanation would be that people get the father and the oldest son mixed up.
