Derstine Family Genealogy Forum
I was chasing down a Durstine/Durstine line for a cousin of mine and came upon your Matilda. The IGI, or International Genealogical Index, has Matilda Derstine b. 17 Feb 1842, Rockhill, Bucks, PA. death date is 2 Aug 1924. Marriage date is 7 Jan 1865 to John M. Bechtel, Sellersville, Bucks, PA. Parents of Matilda listed as Michael Derstine and Elizabeth Herr. There was another marriage record for a Matilda E. Durston, 22 may 1876, Mercer, Ill., to a Calvin W. Postlewaite.
There is a big passel of Durstines in Alverton, Westmoreland County, PA. This was a Mennonite group and many are buried in the Alverton Mennonite Cemetery, which has an index online. (just google Alverton Mennonite Cemetery)Hope this helps! Shelley
