RE: Simon B @ St Marys
Of course you know, my research makes 'sweeps' through the entire list of 914-ish soldiers for varying purposes and at varying degrees of research 'quality.' In the case of a missing headstone, if I feel a high degree of certainty about a single grave, I will record the GPS coordinates at the center of a single grave. For the year 3014 there will be very few of the 125th left with headstones and the GPS coordinates ALONE will prove.the existence of the Regiment.

In the case of Simon B and his family: if the family plot is a single 'rank' I might record the left and right 'flank markers.' If it's more than one rank (or rectangular) I might record the 4 corners and report:

"The certain location of Simon B's grave is dubious. Based upon concerted genealogical research, Fr/Rev Albert Ledoux considers it 95% probable that Simon B is buried within a within a family plot in St. Mary's Cemetery. Plot consists of X graves in Y shape. GPS coordinates for the four corners are as follows: Most likely grave locations are centered at Coords W and Z."

Thank you.

I see that you photograph the St Patrick cemetary in Gallitzin. I am looking for a Patrick Burns there (not any current listed) in Section 2 on right has a G.A.R marker. (I am not sure what a G.A.R marker is, that is just what is listed on the burial card.

Would appreciate it very much if you get a picture while on your travels.

Thank you!

You are good!
Thank you! Just saw how you had figured you the father of Margaret Elsie Hufford (Mrs. Wilson), Find A Grave # 137487281. That was amazing! From what I can determine, that info had been lost for decades and decades. Thank you.

RE: Discharge papers
I will have to look up where exactly you helped me track them down. Maryland sounds about right.
I do have a question. St. Mary Cemetery in Altoona. Do you know by chance if they have any burial record from the 1890's, or whom I could contact to inquire. My Moser ancestors Nicholas and Frances are buried there, but the grave is unmarked. I know from the newspapers and the Stevens Mortuary records they were both interred there. Their daughter Barbara married Jacob Chirdon (my great-grandparents, and their son Joe Moser married Annie Chirdon. I have always wanted to erect a small memorial stone at the gravesite if I could just figure out where it is.

Morning Father, would you move your photo of the headstone over to Mr Zabinsky Sr. son's memorial. My memorial is a double. Let me know when you have done that and I'll delete mine.

Thank's for the correction.

RE: Centofanti
Hi Father Al,

Thank you for all of the information. I actually had Sophia listed as "Vuccelli" and my mother asked her cousin and she confirmed it was Buccelli. My mother was born in 1932 so she does remember her grandparents but doesn't know very much about them and did not know they buried an infant in PA.

It's interesting to think my mother would have some distant cousins in PA. She's an only child and has so few relatives left. If I could ever get her to use a computer I think she would find it all fascinating.

Thanks again and Merry Christmas to you
