William Ray & other soldiers
Joe, I was in Weatherly, Pennsylvania visiting family & we have family buried in Union Cemetery. I tried to find your photo request but I couldn't find very many. The ones I did find I posted pictures on their pages. I'm sorry I couldn't have helped more. I didn't get to look for very long. It had rained that morning & storms were moving in. I live in Missouri so I don't know when I will get a chance to go back to Weatherly, PA.

HI. I visited the Zion cemetery searching for my whetstone relatives, and took a new photo of the Absalom whetstone memorial. May I add it to your record?

RE: Jonas Setzer
Thank you so much, Joe. I appreciate it greatly. And, yes, the end of his life was very sad... especially for someone who fought hard for his country.

Thank you so much for adding that info to Prosper. It makes gathering the info worth it!

When we came to Pa., last year I fell in love with that cemetery. So beautiful and peaceful. I believe I've found a few more of that family but I need more documents to back it up!

TY TY for all your time and efforts!

Anytime, it was a nice day to walk. Did you see the name was spelled different than your request?

RE: Jesse Gangwer
Hey Joe! No, I was just Fagging his son Harry and wanted to link him to his dad Jesse - and that's how I discovered the dupe. So I hope you guys can work this out. Both memorials have neat stuff so a "merge" would be most appropriate here, I believe. Again, here is Harry's death certificate. Did the outfit you are researching come from Wyoming County, Pennsylvania? Just curious. Thanks, Tom

I added dozens of memorials and photos for all existing headstones to Center Union, but alas no headstone for Jacob H. could be found. There was a pile of old, small headstones around one of the cedar trees, it may be in that pile. But it was far too frigid to try to lift and look at them this weekend.
I added several GAR soldiers and was sucessful in looking up their regts. If you want the names, just ask.

Jacob Hain in Center Union
Later tonight you might want to take a look at what I'm adding for his wife and at least one child in Center Union cemetery. You have him as Haines, perhaps because of war documents, but his wife's & son Walter headstones have "Hain".
I'm also adding a Billows pic (GAR)as soon as Dennis B. moves it from the other listing for this same cemetery.

What a generous spirit you have. Thanks for taking the time to make his memorial and the transfer.

Well....maybe not. I checked Hall's "Burial Records of Union Servicemen". It says A.J. Smith is buried "Smith Graveyard - Clover Creek". Problem is - both Smith cemeteries lie near Clover Creek (the waterway). If it is referring to the hamlet of Clover Creek, however, then it is the one in N. Woodbury Twp, which is the one you already have him in. (I am waiting for the cemetery fix thread to re-designate that one, as it still reads Williamsburg, but is two counties away). Anyway, for now, I think you can leave Andrew where he is. Maybe put a note in the bio about Hall and Clover Creek.

RE: Andrew Smith

I have added the Woodbury Township Smith cemetery, using the Andrew Smith memorial that my contact sent to me. It obviously not the Andrew you are looking for, as the man is really too old to be a Civil War vet; also, both of those Pa. Burial Cards say the grave of the CW Andrew is unmarked. I have one more source to check - will let you know what I find.

It would be helpful if I could identify the CW fellow on the 1860 census, but I cannot pinpoint which Andrew he is, if any.

Here is the Woodbury one:

RE: Andrew Smith

I am in contact with my 'cemetery guru' in Blair County and am trying to track down your Andrew Smith. The cemetery you had listed I believed to be the one in North Woodbury and I got it mapped and added the known burials. However, I found out there is indeed another one closer to Williamsburg. I am awaiting GPS info from my contact, at which point I will be adding that cemetery. I think your Andrew belongs in that one, but am trying to get more info. I will keep you posted.

RE: Isaac Baker
Thank you. I"m sorry the photo wasn't the best. As you can tell by the photo, his gravestone is almost completely covered by moss or the like. Most of that graveyard is under tree cover and with the wet spring/summer we had this year, most of the flat stones that get little sunlight look like his. Perhaps I'll get a chance to go back and get a better shot of his gravestone next spring. I was surprised that he didn't have a military gravestone or some indication of his service on this gravestone. My great-grandfather fought with Company F, 47th Indiana Regiment. His memorial is #54203625 if you would like to take a look. Continued good luck with your Civil War research.

Joe, I have also (just now) uploaded a photo of William E. Snyder - perhaps you could identify the medal/badge he is wearing? I only now noticed it - is it Civil War regalia of some sort?

He is my great great great grandfather, proud to say that

Rev Msgr. Gabriel Martyak Memorial#134540199
Dear Joe: Can I have permission to post your photo of St. John's Byzantine Catholic Cemetery chapel on Monsignor Gabriel Martyak's entry, I have a photo request up but not sure if anyone will be able to obtain it as he is interred under the altar of the cemetery chapel. Thank you for your consideration.
