Thanks! Are you family or a cemetery angel? :-) If you are family, I'd be glad to share my genealogy research.

Best wishes,

Asa Holcomb # 132238513
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:

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.

Thanks for completing the edit/suggestion. Your mention of your ancestor Jonas Delong, peaked my curiosity. After a bit of research I realized that we had corresponded back in 2001 about the same Jonas. Unfortunately I am still stuck on him as you are. /Roy

Nan, It would be appreciated if you would transfer.
I hope to start linking some more people. William
M. and Valentine Irvin are my great grand father's
brothers. His sister, Sytha Harrison is in Forest
Hills. I did not find William's first wife,
Margaret Griffiths Irvin, when I walked the cemetery
last week. Maybe on our next trip to Gatlinburg
from Texas?

RE: Martha Stevens Fritz
Hey Nan, I found these pics posted on for William S. Fritz, a.k.a. Delno Fritz. I'll add them to your memorial. Is there any info you are looking for? I have obits., marriage license info and headstones for most of the Price and Fritz family. My family tree is private on, but I'm willing to invite anyone as long as I know they are related and not some crackpot out there.

Martha Stevens Fritz
So we meet again! Hi Nan. I added a photo of Martha Fritz's headstone from Maple Hill Cemetery. I got in the way of the photo a bit but it's the only one I have. According to her headstone, she was born in 1846 not 1844. I don't have any more info on her. Thanks so much for the added info. We use to go visit Eddie and Betty Fritz a lot. Eddie showed us a picture of William Fritz, the sword swallower from Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus. I didn't have a scanner at the time to take a copy of it. Wish I had a copy now. The picture was of William Fritz with the sword down his throat. It was so cool!
Take care Nan.

RE: Christian Walter
Thank you. Do you search on

My Christian Walter (1836-1898) isn't the son of Christian Walter who died Sunday, Feb. 29, 1920.

An obituary for the other Christian Walter (1848-1920)appears 3/1/1920 in the Wilkes-Barre Times with his picture and is titled "Local Merchant Claim by Death" with a lengthy obituary.

If you don't research on and would like his obituary, let me know.

Thanks again for transferring Christian 1836-1898 to me.

RE: Christian Walter
Here is Christian's obituary appeared in the Wilkes-Barre Evening News on Monday, March 7, 1898 – ‘Death of Chris. Walter
Christian Walter, an old resident of the city, died at his home, 14 Hanover street, on Sunday morning of pneumonia. He was born in Bavaria on February 26, 1836. In 1852 he came to this country and located at Wilkes-Barre, where he has since resided. On the 12th of October, 1856, he was united in marriage to Gertrude Scheidel, who, with eleven out of fourteen children with them their union was blessed, survives him. The children who mourn the loss of a kind and indulgent father are John P., Mrs. John Lockorn, Mrs. Charles Hochreiter, Mrs. George Birmer, Mrs. John Moyles, Mrs. Joseph Meder, Francis, Anna, George, William and Kate. The funeral will be held on Tuesday morning from the house at 9:30 with a requiem high mass at St. Nicholas at 10 o'clock, which all friends and relatives are invited to attend. Interment will take place in the family plot in the Darling street German Catholic cemetery.'
St. Nicholas records list he was buried on 8 March 1898 in St. Nicholas German Catholic Church.

On the passenger list for the ship, the ‘SS John Hancock' that arrived in the Port of New York on June 24, 1852 are Christian Walter, age 16 and Barbara Walter, age 22. The ship sailed from LeHavre, France to America.

When did Christian arrived in Wilkes-Barre, I don't know. And why W-B? What became of Barbara Walter who immigrated with him, I don't know. Was Barbara a sister? However, his first born daughter was named after her, Barbara Walter, born 27 May 1859, the Mrs. John Lockorn listed in his obituary.

If you need additional information, just let me know. And thank you for updating his listing on
