The little story you have posted there did you find that in a newspaper article? I'm trying to see if this girl was related to a Phillip J Williams. I wondering if Thomas G is his father.

I can send on to you the article from the Gazette if I had your e-mail. Hope it is big enough to be read. Linda

RE: Ira S. Gordon
Thank you. There was an announcement of his death in the Wilkes-Barre Record (newspaper in his home town). It gave the date of death, and where. It was published March 23, 1894 and appears on page 8. It also said he died of heart disease, aged 67, formerly of Dallas. It was a small article. Linda

RE: Ira S. Gordon
Isn't it interesting to come across an obit that actually shows his death in progress. His being away from his family for so long and his son being with him to watch over him. I don't know if this answers any questions or brings up some new ones. You are welcome. I am not sure if I can scan the real obit and send it on to you. Everytime I try to print it, it comes out so small. Maybe I can get my husband to play around with this site. Linda

Kirkendalls in Carverton Cemetery
Hi Nan,

I am wondering if you have any additional information on the Kirkendalls buried in Carverton Cemetery?
I am guessing they somehow fit into the rest of the Kirkendalls in Luzerne and Columbia counties....I just do not know how.
Any information you may have and could share would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you! Jan

Ilys Sult
Ilys is not there. I already called the cemetery last year. I am related to the Stifnagles and she is one of my unsolved mysteries. How are you related?

Do you have any idea what year Ilys died or where she is buried?

Thank you so much for updating Alice Holcomb's memorial AND especially for finding her dad Asa Holcomb... I have been searching for hours trying to find his death record in PA online death records on Ancestry with no luck... Do you have access to the cemetery records with the dates OR where else did you find the dates for Asa? Any help would be appreciated....

Again thank you!!!


Here is the memorial you updated while adding her dad Asa:
This is an automated email letting you know that your recent edit for the Alice Holcomb Ruth (1878 - 1965) Find A Grave memorial has been accepted.

RE: John Baldwin in Union Cemetery
Good lord, what kind of stone were they using in the early 1800s that seems to have MELTED? One fellow, a sexton in Derby, told me that was "Georgia Stone," as opposed to the superior Vermont or (better) Boston stone. Some stone looks as though it was carved this morning. But those poor folk with that soft white awful! Anyhow, to the point, I am glad to be of help!

RE: Photos in Luzerne Co cemeteries
Nan, I survived the winter, and am finally outside shooting pictures again. Pittston Cemetery is looking wonderful after the historical society"s hard work cleaning up last fall. We have digitized the record books, and are now transcribing them to excel sheets which will soon be searchable. If you have anyone in Pittston City Cemetery ( Odd Fellows Cem ) , I can get into the records now.
I'm sure our paths will cross all summer..LOL

Elizabeth Slettedahl
Pls forgive if I've already messaged you on this...I called Cypress Lawn to ask exactly where Elizabeth is interred so I could get a photo, and they said they had no one by that name who died in 1983. Can you double-check your info on Elizabeth to see why you created a memorial for her with that date and that cemetery?

RE: Benjamin Walker
Dear Nan, It was so late when I sent the email last night, and I had hit send without even signing my name, then I looked at Druscilla and Mercy's memorial and realized it was not you. So I really put my foot in my mouth on that one. I think families suffered the same dysfunction as they do today, but women and children suffered the most and felt stuck were they were. It was interesting to see that Mary their mother was still alive till 1913 and did not have the girls with her from 1880 up till 1910. Makes you wonder if she was an alcoholic, had TB or was plain unstable. Even divorce was such a shameful thing in a family in those days. Thanks for your response. Carrie C.
