While I'm not doing research on either the Malsberger or Yahn families, I do have some information from a headstone reading a friend and I did of the older section of the Pottstown Cemetery. Here are the Malsbergers we found there and some additional information [in brackets] that we've found on the burials. There are likely more Malsbergers in the newer section of the Pottstown Cemetery, that I have no information on.
