RE: Phillips Cemetery
Hi there,
Here are the ones I was wondering about:

Opal Ellen Summers-(Crawford)
Alice Amanda Summers- ( Dawson)
Ocie O. Summers- (Drake)
Alexander Summers
Clarence Arnold Summers
Cossie E. Summers
Delbert Arnold Summers
Meade Summers
Patrick Ira (Pat) Summers
Ronald Lee Summers
Roscoe Summers
I am trying to connect them to the Phillips who are also buried in the Phillips Cemetery.
There is a Lilburn Phillips and a Lilburn Strothers Phillips buried there. James Phillips would have been one of the younger sons born to Lilburn and Mima Phillips.
Thank you for writing back,
Diane Woodard

Summers in Phillips Cemetery
I have been trying for a very long time to figure out how the Summers and other surnames are in the Phillips Cemetery in Ovapa.
My Phillips come off of Lilburn Phillips.
Thank you for any information you can give me.

Thanks, no relation. Just grew up in Montgomery County/ I had contact with some of the Edler family looking for relations. I sometimes like a bit of info on why I am changing something. I know your name and you do good work. Jo Ann

RE: Ray Probst and Alice Hixon
Thank you so much, Marji, for your super quick reply. I appreciate it very much. Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well and praying you feel well real soon. I've been so impressed with the work you've done on Find A Grave.

Are we cousins? I hope so. I have a Mary Probst away back in my FT. I doubt that Ray Probst in the 1920 census is a descendant though.

I have been researching my FT for almost a year now and am so hooked. I have so much to learn and love my new hobby-job...I am very blessed to be retired and have the luxury of time to explore this.

Please get well before you look anything up for me. I am a patient and will be delighted when you send the info my way.

Ray Probst and Alice Hixon
Hi MarjisAngels, I noticed on your bio you mentioned you are researching the Probst family.

On the US Federal Census 1920, my great grandmother, Alice Amanda Hoagland, is listed with Ray Probst as being head of household and her name is listed as Alice Hixon. She was married to Emmett Hixon. Also, my grandmother Lottie May McFall is listed as Lottie L Burd on this census. Lottie married my grandfather, Fred Franklin Burns, about 1917 according to the 1930 census, so I think this is a typo. The census taker made a pretty big mess of the page. Lottie's name was Burns not Burd.

My question is how are the Probst Family related to us, the Hoagland's?

Also, do you know if my 2nd Great Grandfather, Henry Hoagland ever had a photo taken? I haven't found one yet.

I appreciate all the contributions you've made to Find A Grave. I found a duplicate post for Martha J Minnick and notified Bill Erickson.

Sure would appreciate any info you can share with me.

James Lee, again.
I still haven't heard from Judith Abernathy, having posted a message on her contributor page over a month ago. I just came across another interesting find on James Lee, and wanted to pass it along to her. I actually found it in the 1845/1846 Presbyterian Synod notes, purely by accident, as I was researching someone else. Great things on Google Books!!! Anyway, if you happen to hear from her, please pass along my interest in hearing from her, too. Thank you!

RE: Hugh Barckley ID 8538130 Edit request
Pvt. is the title for Private, a rank of the military, such as sergeant, captain, etc. You seldom see such titles on tombstones. No more than you might see Doctor, Mr., Mrs., even Rev. is often omitted. Nevertheless, I like to show titles as a sign of respect for those persons who gave of themselves something unique in their life. It also makes it easier to find particular persons when scanning a cemetery listing.
It's your memorial, your call, I only suggested.

Sorry! I have removed the obit for Mary Eve Summers Houf. I posted it when I was scanning through the Fulton Telegraph papers and would have to go back to find it.

Thanks for your message.

I will delete 115279675.

Pauline is my wife's Aunt. The cemetery is the family cemetery and will be our final earthly resting place too.

We would gladly accept your offer in your email to transfer memorial number 114081896 that you created.

Best regards,

Thanks, and Happy New Year!
Thanks for passing my message along to Judith. I'm having some computer issues, too. I built a new computer last March (10 processor cores, solid state hard drive, and lots of memory - very fast). As soon as I got it up and running reliably, my old one started to act up. I still need to get a lot of stuff transferred off of it, but haven't had the time - too many 60+ hour work weeks again this year (but may be unemployed soon - first time since before 2000; I've taken exactly 1 vacation time since then, back in 2006).

Looking around the Internet this morning, and seeing lots of posted errors. Such as a Thomas Lee, born 1803, linked to parents born 1796 and 1798. Also, someone posted a family tree file which included Elizabeth Rankin, citing her marker on Find A Grave with James Lee, but then showing her married to a William Richey instead, with Richey children. It seems computers make it so easy to make mistakes, and then often times are blindly copied by others.

Happy New Year!

James Lee - veteran?
I see you left a note on Judith Abernathy's page - any response? I don't believe I got one from a year ago, either. I was going to pass on news that someone posted a memorial for James Lee, #60195668; it included a photo, clearly showing a Revolutionary War flag holder. As he was a shipwreck survivor of "The Faithful Steward" in 1785, 2 years after the war, it doesn't seem likely he could have been a vet. I did find that a James Lee of PA applied for a pension, but without proof of service, it was denied.

James & William Armstrong memorial transfer
Thanks for the offer, and yes please do transfer the memorials for James Armstrong and his son William (both died 1830 and are buried in Mingo Cemetery, Washington Co., PA) to their gr-gr-gr-grandson, Hal Armstrong, who has just joined Find a Grave. His contributor number is #48599369. He's a direct descendant while I'm from another Armstrong branch.

Thank you so much,

Find A Grave Memorial# 58953976
Dear MarjisAngels,

Thanks for all the memorials you've worked on. It's great to see so much hard work shared with others.

Your Find A Grave Memorial# 58953976 for James Armstrong in Mingo Cemetery, Washington Co., PA, needs a slight date correction. If you'll look closely at the headstone photos, you'll see that the death date is 1830, not 1880 or 1890.

The death date for both James Armstrong and his son William is March 22, 1830. James and his son William died on the same day, March 22, 1830, when a house they were working on collapsed on them (as noted in the Armstrong family Bible). James was 63 years old and William was 13 years old at the time. Also noted in the bible was James' birth date: June 17, 1767 in Ireland.

Anyone interested in more information on this particular family should contact descendant Hal Armstrong in Stockton, California.

FOUND HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She is located at Greenlawn beside her husband Edwin Myers.

Edwin Myers - Masonic 1B - 12
Sarah Luella "Ella" Raner Myers - Masonic 2B - 12

I do not know if she has a marker. If you move her to Greenlawn or create a page for her there, then you could ask for a a photo.

I called Greenlawn this morning for the location.

I will post the Edwin locaion on his memorial page.
I do not know how to add a cemetery loacation.

Thank you so much for the transfer. I'll keep your original and make the changes and additions to it and then delete mine because I've noticed that some have it connected in ancestry and I want it to be there for them when they go back to it. Thanks again! Have a great day!
