Helen DeLong
Sorry, but I have not researched her. Since her mother Emily died while Helen was an infant it seems plausible that her sister would take over her care. Wonder what happened to the other two children which were still very young. I believe I found Emily's husband Frances E. DeLong in Wilkes-Barre, Luzerne Co., PA,(1920 census) age 42 a boarder, married (should be widower?), but with none of his family with him. I do know that son Milton W. was with his grandparents. If you find anything of importance, please let me know, so I can update her file.

Frances Emory DeLong's 1917-18 WWI draft card has him in Wilkes-Barre. Also with him was Arline DeLong at same address who might be a 2nd wife.

Thank you for responding and thank you in advance for doing the research.

There is a photo. If it's not uploaded yet, it should be soon.

Hi,
I am no relation to this family. I have been going through old newspaper obits-before 1921 and Pa Death certificates to verify 2 sources and add the burials to help others. I will look at the 2 Willoughbys' you added and do the links. Was there a picture of Williams' grave?
Thanks,
Louise

RE: Sybella Susan Seckel Clay
Antique Shop. Just for fun, when I go into the shops, I look for old photographs that have a name on them and the city and/or the state where the photographer took the pictures. I visited Washington D.C. a couple of years ago and found them. From there I go looking at ancestory.com or find a grave to find their family. Sometimes I connect up with the family and send the pictures to them, hopefully getting reimbursed for the cost of the pictures. I also have 600+ yearbooks from around the country from 1895 to 1940 with pictures. I like the smaller and older ones cause they usually have more about the person that I can add to their profile.

Hi Louise,

I think it looks great!!! And old enough there's no copyright issue. Are you a relative? I'm not, although a distant cousin fits in there somewhere. I'd be happy to transfer him and any others you're interested in. Alice

No, I don't know them either. I just love to collect old photos and these family members were all in the same bin.

Sybella Susan Seckel Clay
I added a picture of her. I also have a picture of Edward Priestery that was taken in Philadelphia approx. 1881. The photo inscription for Edward says "Born 1861 about 20 yrs old". I am assuming that he was 20 at the time the photo was taken. I have a picture of John Seckel from the same photographer as Sybella's picture, so I am assuming it is her father. I am going to upload that to his grave. You can contact me if needed. Meredith@mbaileycpa.com.

RE: 141284991 Leadbeater
Hiya, and sorry for the bother -- there was a weird, momentary glitch in the Find a Grave system that threw an edit I made for someone else at this specific record. (I remember wondering why I was redirected to this record after I submitted the edit, rather than to the record I was trying to add to.) I'll yank the edit from my Pending list now.

Hello again Louise. Just a quick note to let you know that the John Leadbeater who married my g grandmother was born in Pennsylvania, not in England. Is it possible you are looking for a different John Leadbeater? Thanks for all you do!

RE: Elizabeth Ledward
Thank you for responding Louise. No, you are doing a fine job of managing her memorial. My ancestry info is not private. I believe sharing is important to making connections. I did not know that John Leadbeater had previous wife. I would sincerely like to stay in touch with you and learn more. As you know, my g grandmother is buried with him at Greenwood. Also, my brother, Richard Ledward. Thanks for noticing her locket. We have always wondered if the gent on her locket is John Leadbeater. Would you have any photos of him?

Lucius Webb
Hi Louise,
Since Lucius is a great grand parent of yours and also my husbands 2nd great grandfather there is no doubt a relationship between you and him. I have been trying all I know for years to go back to the parents of Lucius but to no avail. Please let us know if you ever find out any relative information.

RE: Hansell Family
Louise,
The contributor that created the incorrect memorials for James #17271295 and Ann Catharine Hansell, #17271306 has been inactive for years. You can clearly see my note on her profile page, (Britt Anderson), that never established any type of response. I am quite sure that I have sent (Edit) at least three requests to have those two memorials in the William Anderson Cemetery deleted, however both of them remain active to this day. Lots of people join Find A Grave with high aspirations and objectives, but after a brief flurry of activity, they drift away to become inactive. No use sending her an e-mail either, for she won't reply; as a matter of fact, it seems like the e-mail address @firedog is defunct. If all of us commit a little time to sending edit requests to the administration, then these two erroneous memorials should go away once and for all. Keep an eye on them for a spell. Thanks for your message.

RE: Hughes Warner Hallowell
Yes, Hughes Warner Hallowell's (went by Warner) first wife Anna W. Davis died on 27 Dec 1929 (date from Warner's 2nd marriage certificate). He married Emma Cordelia (Pepper) Wynn on 10 June 1933 at 611 Arbor Rd., Rowland Park, Montgomery Co. PA. I found this marriage registration in the Montgomery Co. Archives record books on a previous visit to Norristown. Emma's first husband had died on 29 Jan 1926 according to the same document. Emma died 6 Oct 1941 and is buried in Northwoods Cemetery as you said. Warner's first wife Anna is buried next to him in Warminster Friends Burial Ground.

Forest Hills Cemetery, Morrisville, PA
RE: RAy Raunaheimo's message...

Louise,

It is listed in Morrisville, Bucks County, and I went to a military funeral there for my friend, Laura Weber, a couple of months ago. There are not a lot of interments listed but is quite a large cemetery!

It must be a newer one and no one seems to know that it exists. It certainly shouldn't be eliminated!

Take a ride and see for yourself.

As always,
Hilda

RE: Forest Hills Cemetery
Actually, the entries made to this cemetery should have been made to the Forest Hills in Montgomery County. I have notified everyone who had entered any here and several have responded.
The problem came up because most of the people who would be interred there came from Philadelphia. To their families, if it's out of the city, it must be in Bucks County.
I'll ask FindAGrave to move those postings remaining to the Montgomery County Forest Hills. Then we'll eliminate the Bucks County Forest Hills and my county will be accurate again.
Thanks,
RayR
