Anita Bolden Fitts memorial
I came across letters and photos from the Bolden family and their daughter Anita Bolden Fitts who is buried in Pittsburgh. I added some of the photos but I was wondering if you know anything about them or were these just memorials that you added on your searches.

Amy H Rickey - Allegheny Cemetery
I added a picture and sent an edit for her date/place of death, confirmed by her death certificate and her death record in the Pittsburgh Press. Her year of birth differs on her marker and on her death certificate, so I will leave that to you to decide.

Hello. I see you have several Lucas & Lubbert memorials. Would you happen to be related? I ask because i have yet to find anyone on ancestry besides myself and a triple cousin Lori Lucas with accurate information on these lines... I have come to find out that 3 Lucas siblings married 3 Lubbert siblings. I would love to connect if you are a relative, and compare notes... my email is

John Franklin Worth
Created by: Dr. James M. Owston
Record added: Feb 02, 2009
Find A Grave Memorial# 33499614

Dr. Owston -

When I went to the Allegheny Cemetery website, and conducted a search for THIS John Franklin Worth, I did not find any burial information. I believe that this particular John Franklin Worth to be buried at Wilson Cemetery in Licking County, Ohio. This John Franklin Worth - with the correct WWI draft registration would be my gr gr grandfather and he was married first to Helena Ziegler in 1894 and when she died in 1927, 6 months later apparently returned to where he was born and married Daisy Roby. He is buried there with her in Wilson Cemetery. Do you have any other information regarding this John Franklin Worth that might be of some assistance? Would you be willing to transfer this memorial? I can be reached at Looking forward to having a conversation with you sir. Thank you very much. Respectfully, Odielion

I am so sorry. I said that William S was William Simcox Henderson, when in fact, this one is actually William Small Henderson, the son of Charles L Henderson and Phebe E Small.

I have made the corrections for him, and am striving to find a burial number for his father, to show the connection.

So many Hendersons, at times, without the birth certificates it can really get confusing.

Please forgive my previous error, and I do hope you will make this correction so we can keep the families together.

Thank you,

Memorial# 33730170 Transfer Request
Please transfer Little Willie's Find A Grave Memorial # 33730170 to sagesteps (#47683335). Many thanks, Dr. George H. Schauer

Dear Dr. Owston, I noticed you have a photo of a monument with my great great grandparents on it at Allegheny Cemetery. They are Catherine and John Schoedel. The stone actually has Schoedel at the top and at the bottom it is spelled Schoetel. On all the paperwork I have in regards to them it says Shadle or Shadel. Ugh. Anyway, this is them and thought I'd just add that note about their last name. Thanks for posting it.

I noticed on Find A Grave you had listed a John Scott who died 1862 and was wondering if you know anything about the Scott family. Margaret C Scott married Joseph Matson and they are also buried in Sec 31 lot 224. Can you help me with this line of family. Thank You

Claire Freedann
Sylvester Rhodes Willock
I see your name is connected to Sylvester Rhodes Willock. I believe he is the father of Audrey Jonette Willock Freedman. Her mother was Hilda L. Reiber.

Audrey Freedman was married to Monroe Henry Freedman, my brother. I am doing research on her family through FamilySearch/FamilyTree.

I am most anxious to get in touch with you and find the family connection. My brother died one year ago today, February 26, 2015.
