Schreiber-Bobenreith fams - Kersey PA- 1850 forwd

My grandmother, Edith Agnes Schreiber, was raised in the Kersey area. Her father was John George (or George John) Schreiber and her mother was Catharine Bobenrieth. Edith's sisters, Mary Schreiber Mozier, Annie Wickett (m. Clement) and Josephine Schreiber lived in Kersey pretty much all of their lives. Aunt Jo lived in the family home (2 story, white) on the main road though Kersey. It was close to the Catholic church which, as I remember, sat toward the top of the hill. A couple of houses down the street on the other side of the house was a funeral director. I played with his daughter on a couple of my visits. My great-grandfather, John (or George) Schreiber had a memorial window in this church for years. I am looking for anyone who can give me any information or genealogy data regarding my grandmother's parents - John (or George) and Catherine (Bobenreith) Schreiber. My grandmother, Edith, had some brothers as well, George, Fred, and some others whose names I do not have. My grandparents used to bring me to Kersey when I was young and I always had such a wonderful time there. I met a lot of people there who were second and third cousins of mine and I have a lot of happy memories of these nice people. I never got back to Kersey after my grandparents moved to Florida, but I always remembered how nice everybody there was to me and to my brother. I would be deeply appreciative of any help available regarding these branches of my family. Thanks for taking time to read this message.
