In search of my Yergers I found this obituary. There is no known connection to my Yergers, but I thought others might find it helpful. Also we would like to confirm the burial at the Pottstown Cemetery for their records if possible.

Pottstown News, Pottstown, PA, July 1927

Obituary - GEORGE W. YERGER
George W. Yerger died yesterday afternoon at 2:30 oclock at the home of his granddaughter, Mrs. Charles B. Wolfgang, 1254 Maple Street. He was aged 83 years. About 11:00 oclock on Wednesday night Mr. Yerger was seized with a stroke of apoplexy. He had previously been in fairly good health. His wife died some years ago.
