Thanks for the info on Margaretta. I updated her memorial per your info. Neither one of her husbands is buried in Spring Hill and I have no info on their birth dates or death dates so I was unable to search for them. I added their names but could not link her to either one.

John and Robert Brown buried at Pine Grove Cemetery, Berwick, PA
I've just been looking at the memorials 26662490 and 24553945. Do you think these two are the original two settlers of Berwick ?

Best wishes,

I noticed you have entered alot of people from the Dodson Cemetery in PA. I also noticed you entered locations on your pages. Where did you get that info?? I did not find locations on my relatives pages. Do you know where I might be able to find that info??
Thanks so much for all the work you did add, it is greatly appreciated!

Thank You so Much
I have been seeing some of what you have added, and am so Very Thankful for all your time and effort to find our relatives, and for you sharing. I have been so stumped for years looking for William Thomas Fortney's siblings, parents... the hours I have spent. I found this site (Find A Grave) in 2012, and to think had I looked here in 2008 where you added this records...... I could a goofed off, instead of hitting my head against the wall in frustration. So again your the man!!!! I also didn't really learn how to seach this site until, the last month or so.

June Howard
Town Hill Cemetery
I went to Town Hill Cemetery yesterday to photograph some tombstones and what a shock....the place is totally overgrown and I was hardly able to even get up into the so called, weeds, fallen trees, leaves, brush, etc.....finally saw a few stones sticking up here and there and only a few able to read....many broken, unreadable, standing up against a tree the few that I could read....could not find the ones I went there for as it was so bad to walk around in there... many trees and limbs down all around to climb over.....what happened to this cemetery since the pictures you posted? What a shame to find this cemetery abandoned and uncared for!

Jacob and Margaret Fortney
Thank you for adding the Fortney's in the Mohler Dunkard Brethren Cemetery in Cumberland Co, PA on Findagrave. I was just going to do it myself but you beat me to it. Mike will be so proud that his great great grandparents are on there and that someone else besides us cared to do this.

Hi Bryan
Got your e mail. Another finding right in front of our noses is that William Thomas Fortney named one of his sons George Washington Fortney. So Solomon, and George Washington must be bros to William Thomas making Jonas and Polly Wms parents.
The will cetainly helped. I need to learn how to use Family Search. Impressed with your finding of the will. Now to find Wms that you spoke about. Many many thanks!!!

Dorothy Furtney
Thank you Bryan for catching my duplication on entering Dorothy Furtney memorials. I made a correction changing her maiden name from Smith to Hillman.

It's hard to believe 26 years have gone by since we had the Furtney reunion at the Martha Gilbert farm in Buffalo, Minnesota.

Thank you for your dedication and continued research. Dorothy

Some one has confused the two Highland Cemeteries in Mahaska Co. Iowa. I only post photographs that I take, so I can guarantee you 100% that Mr. and Mrs. Fortney are in Highland Cemetery, New Sharon, Iowa.

This has been a problem of long-standing in our county. It also has 2 Friends cemeteries.

But rest assured and know for certain that the Fortneys are in New Sharon Highland.

Thanks for the link info to Leah's parents. It's interesting about Lacy Evers as she is not listed in the cemetery book, but in taking Milton and Leah's stone, I noticed her's so snapped a photo as well. It took a little bit of searching to find out who she was. If you know of Lacy's parents I would be glad to link them as well. Thanks.

Really liked the photos you did for John B. Watts (# 26663452) in Pine Grove Cemetery. Really liked the overall view plus the detail. Nice Work!

RE: Vita Maria Mallett
Hi Bryan. I have just transferred Vita Mallett's memorial (from Yacolt Cemetery) to you. No, I'm not related to her but have taken photos of most of Yacolt's headstones. It's a very small cemetery in the north of our county (just 15 minutes from my home), so I have tried to add anyone who was not already listed as being buried in the cemetery. I hope it will help someone find their ancestors.

Good luck to you and let me know if you need anything further from Yacolt! :)

RE: Suggestions * Lillie
Hi Bryan,
Good to hear from you. I had no idea you were so involved with F.G. I love genealogy and plan on doing a lot more with this cite. Awesome we have a mutual interest! I've always considered you and your siblings as my brothers.

Yes, please transfer the graves at Harbor View to me. Thank-you for offering!

Please keep in touch! Lillie

I am in the midst of photographing and updating the cemeteries of Mifflin County. The names I posted are all from the books of the cemeteries published back in the mid-70's. I have run across quite a few mistakes but they had no computers, no digital cameras and it was all hand written and then typed. There are also many stones missing let alone the new burials since then. I posted the info you sent on the memorial. (The reason he used another name was one of the reasons I thought of but wasn't making any guesses. ;-) I haven't done First Methodist yet and if this weather doesn't clear off and warm up it looks like it may not be until Spring 2012 getting it done. Have faith - I'll get what I can for you - including the dates from the stone when I can!
