It looks like we're fairly closely related!
I am also a descendent of Jacob Statler(1834-1921), son of Samuel and Eleanore Raymer. Jacob's daughter, Bertha, and Bruce Kuhn were the parents of Ruth Kuhn, my father's mother. So, we may be fourth cousins or so!
Thanks for the burial information for Jacob. My grandparents are also buried at Cedar Hill and I have meant to go back there to look up other family members but I haven't gotten a chance.
I have been intrigued by this branch of the family because of the double Statler/Stotler connection, so I have collected a fair amount of information. Unfortunately, there seems to be a general consensus that nothing can be proved before Samuel's parents (John Statler and Esther Funk) and Elizabeth's (wife of Philip Raymer) parents (Jacob Statler and Anna Nancy Seitz) to tie those two families together. Jacob and John may have been brothers, but there doesn't seem to be proof.
Check out some of discussions that I have had with people on the Stotler/Statler/Seitz GenForums regarding some of this information.
I'm glad to share what I have!
