RE: Stanislaw Rybka - D: 1927

Thank you for posting the tombstone for Sarah Lowrie. It also has death date and place for her husband John Lowrie. It appears that they died on the same day - Dec 27, 1837. Do you know if they both died in PA ? Is John buried in PA or in Mobile, AL ? Have you found any evidence that they may have had another child, perhaps a son named Robert ??
Thank you for whatever information you may be able to share about these ancestors.
Sincerely, Jackie Lowrie

Photo usage
Hi Todd,

Thank you so much for the pics you've posted and the work you are doing to help those of us using F.A.G. It is much appreciated. I was wondering if you would allow me to post some of your pics to my online tree if I properly credit you and F.A.G. There are some Shreffler relatives I found specifically, but there may be other too. Thank you for taking a moment to consider my requests.

Louise and Victoria Crame
Hello Mr. Walker,

You are listed as having submitted the photos for the graves of Louise and Victoria Crame from the Hoffman Cemetery in Smithton and I'm wondering if you are of any relation to them, and if you may have any more information on their family tree, specifically their parents or siblings. I've hit a dead end in my searches with both of them and am hoping you may be able to help. The family tree they are related to are the Devette's of Washington and later Lilly Townships.

Kindest regards,

Don Neff

You are most welcome, Todd. I like doing this for others, and the Shaarie Torah Cemetery is a really lovely place to spend some time. Sidney and Ducky are well cared for.

RE: Bostaph & Klinger photos
I have to agree with your opinion of St. Petersburg Cemetery; it is one of my favorites also. The little Presbyterian church in whose yard the cemetery lies lends beauty and dignity to the folks at rest there. At noon the church bell sounds the hour and that is followed by a chimed hymn of a couple minutes duration; lovely indeed.
I must admit though, the cemetery has a bit of eccentricy about it. I don't remember the names off hand but there is one small marker that has the man's name, birth and death year (1915), the man's nickname (turkey)and the notation, "Folk Hero"; and that's all. Who was this guy and why was he a folk hero?
Then there is this lady's large stone marker (19th century) that has a full sized coffin shaped stone attachment with a removable lid.
I could go on but I shan't bore you longer. I most likely will make another expedition to St. Petersburg in the coming week and perhaps come across more of your kin.
All the best,

RE: Shirley A. Fritz
Hello Todd,

I appreciate your reply and thank you for your understanding. I had been going around and around trying to figure out the protocol as to what to put in the fields when one is presented with new information. Your kind words make me feel like I am headed on the right path. :)

I transferred Shirley's memorial to you since you are relation. It makes me happy knowing that she is going to family. It's the reason why I am doing what I'm doing because I found some of my family on here and it really made me feel like I have somewhere to visit since I cannot actually go visit them in person. So in turn, I am wanting to do the same for others as well. Glad you stopped by and I always welcome input.

Shirley A. Fritz
Hi Todd,
Thank you for the additional information that you provided. I appreciate it very much. I accepted all the edits except one, the date of death for Shirley A. Fritz. The marker itself says 1932 and as per the forum and findagrave's FAQs, the information on the marker is what should be entered into the appropriate fields (unless it's more information where there are blanks such as middle names, place where they died, etc).
Since the year of death was the only thing that didn't match to what was on the marker, I left that alone and did not make any changes or adjustments to the year of death.
However, I did add that additional information that you provided into the bio for anyone doing research and gave you credit as well.
I have gone around in circles on the forum asking questions about what should be entered into the fields (name, dob, dod, etc) and I got my answers last week so I thought I'd stop by and let you know.
Cheers, thanks a lot my friend. :)
