Johannes Strevel

Margie Miller, the historian in Ancramdale, which is where Johannas and Uldrick had adjoining farms, took a group from one of the Strevel, Strevell, and Strever family reunion around to different cemeteries to look at grave sites of the early Strevels and Strevers. It is unknown where Uldrick`s gravestone is, but Johannas Strevel and his wife Maria`s are still in place. The gravestones were very large and it was easy to see the engraving on them
Here are the direction to Johannas` and Maria`s gravestones:
Start at the Ancramdale General Store.
take Skyline past Cottontail - go approx .2 miles and go
Left at the "Y" (go approx .4 miles) and go
Left at the "Y" and go approx .6 miles 
At the "T" go left on Fernbank Rd
Pass Cedar Lane  
go 1.3 miles and turn right on Hall Hill Rd.
go 2.4 miles and turn left at the "Y"
go .3 miles to "T" go right & then take immediate left into
Barn (Silvernails) - there is the Dings Cemetary. 
To see their grave stones one would need to go over the fence on the right into what looks like a forest. It is actually not that big in there and there are a number of graves (most flat on the ground) however, Johannas` and Maria`s are still upright and in good shape. They are fairly large and easy to find.
