Please cut and paste to the bio section above or below your Chester Times obit. I suspect this one is a bit more accurate. Let me know so I can remove the temporary photo.

The Daily Local News, West Chester, Chester County, Pa.
May 16, 1922

Mrs. Jesse Bilson, aged 41 years, died at her home, Modena, on Saturday evening. Death was the result of an illness, it is ssid, following a blood transfusion for a cousin, Mrs. Sara Chamberlain, at Coatesville Hospital, on April 27th last. A daughter, Mrs. E. Pepperman, and the husband survive. Mrs. Bilson sacrificed a great amount of blood in order to save the life of her cousin if possible. This failed, however, Mrs. Chamberlain dying the same day the operation was performed.

RE: Bilson Family Bios
Kool. Read them for typos. anything with (sic) after it is how it was written in the obit. You should be able to make parental links on some of them based on the obit. Let me know where I can help in Chester County, Pa.

Mount Zion Cemetery
Hello -- I am desperately searching for photos of the markers for two relatives in Mount Zion Cemetery. I have even gone out to the cemetery while in New York in 2004 from Washington state, but had very little luck. We did eventually find the marker for Josephine Stignitz, born 4/10/1844 died sometime in 1915. She was buried on 7/25/1916 so our date of her death is probably wrong. Or the cemetery's is which reportedly was located at 14R-9-None. The marker had been knocked down and we did manage to get some photos on that trip but I cannot locate them. We never were able to locate the marker for her son, Gustave Adolph Pressburg born 5/27/1878 and died 3/11/1921 buried on 3/13/1921 which is supposed to be located at 10L-5-2-14 Wishnaw. We need to get photos of his marker in particular. Are you able to help me with this effort at all? If not, do you know one of your Find A Grave friends who can? I am more than happy to reimburse you for any costs, gas, tolls, your time and effort, whatever it would take. This is a dead end for our family. We knew that Gustave had emigrated from Budapest in 1906, but we had not even known that Josephine emigrated until we tripped over her marker. Please let me know if you are able to help me at all. My regular email address is sandracfitzgerald@comcast.net or you can call me anytime on my cell phone at (562) 237-2591. Thank you so much for your time and effort.

Aulenbach's Cem. map
Hello and happy new year!

I have been tracking down my 4g-grandmother Harriet Templin Rogers who is buried in Aulenbach's Cemetery in Mt. Penn, PA. I have come to you because you posted a map of that cemetery. Sadly, the version online is not easily readable. Would I be able to obtain from you a higher resolution version of that map? Thank you so much.

Sincerely,
Tom Miller

I added the photo for John and his wife, they have a memorial under the correct spelling. The dates agree.

Hi,

I was hoping you might transfer Edna Z. Gibson Bilson (Memorial #32535595)to me? She is my husband's great aunt. I have more information on her; middle name, first marriage (Bilson was her second husband), parents, siblings, etc. If you do not want to tranfer her because she is connected to your family, please let me know and I will supply you with the additional information.

Thanks.

RE: Thanks
I don't know these people personally. Just adding old obits with burial sites mentioned in them. I figured an elderly person who dies after the spouse...more than likely is burial next to them. Asking for the photos proves that...good, I am glad you got the other photo and made a memorial. I don't know the connections.
