Hi Peter,
Here are the two cemeteries involved.
St. Wendelin Cemetery
2728 Custer Ave
Pittsburgh, PA 15210


Loretto Cemetery
Prince of Peace Parish
81 S. 13th St
Pittsburgh, PA 15203


You are right when you say that groups from the same village tended to
cluster together here in the US.
Some of the names you listed have meaning for me such as;
Rosenberger, my great great grandfather was John ADAM Rosenberger
Geis, Anna Marie Geis was the mother of my great great great grandmother
Amhrein, signed my great great great grandfather Rosenberger's will and
was supposed to have been a cousin
Fleckenstein, was my great great great grandmother, Elizabeth Hirsch's
brother in law have married her sister Margaret. He also signed the
Rosenberger will.
His brother, Phillip and his wife sponser my great great grandmother in
baptism..
I will check each name you listed against my cemeteries. If I find any
I will forward them to you.

The local Roman Catholic diocese has a web site and archives on line.
They will do research for you but do charge. If interested I will look
it up and forward it to you.
