53For the translation of Christ Reformed Church records, Schoenersville, see Microfilm Reel 138, GSP. 54A transcript of the St. Thomas' Cemetery inscriptions is in the Genealogical Department of the Bethlehem, Pa. Public Library. The inscription in this record states Johann J. Stuver was married 49 years and had 9 sons and 3 daughters, but original estate papers in Orphans Court File #6435 list only 7 sons, a number which agrees with an account written by one of his granddaughters in the author's possession.
