Here’s what I can tell you about this family. Sarah’s first husband William H. Kresge died in 1877 and is buried in the old Appenzell Cemetery (St Mark's), Monroe Co., Pa. Jacob C. Miller and his first wife Elizabeth are also buried there and Elizabeth died in 1876. These dates are according to their grave markers, which I probably have photographs of. Jacob and Sarah married before 1880 and here’s how the family appeared in the 1880 census, Chestnuthill, Monroe Co., Pa.

As you can see, some of Sarah’s Kresge children are living with the family. Also of note here are the final two Miller children. With Elizabeth Miller dying in 1876, six-year-old Jacob has to have been the son of Jacob and Elizabeth, while 10-month-old Layton has to have been the son of Jacob and Sarah Kresge.
I cannot find Sarah in the 1900 census. In the 1930 census there is a Reuben Meckes living with his wife Lizze and children in Palmerton in Carbon County. Is this your grandfather? There is a Lewis Lichtenwalner in the census 1910-1930, however he is married to a Lizzie, not a Sarah.
