|Ruth E Hardy||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 cemetery.....rocks, 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!

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.

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 Peterson Kunz||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.

|Jan Grant||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! :)

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!

Thank you for letting me know who Hollie's parents are. I linked her to them. I am not directly related to the Wisham's, but I have several family members buried in the same cemetery as her and her husband. I always appreciate more info on any memorial I have made. Genealogy and findagrave have been so interesting and I have learned so much about people in my searches.

|HAD||Elmer Furtney at Buena Vista Mound|
I went to the Keokuk Public Library to see what they had on file for Buena Vista Mound Cemetery, and found a transcription from the late 60's or early 70's. The stone for the child of Isaac and Phoebe is for Elmer. The transcription says died September 1877, aged 4 years 22 days.
