Export is a borough in Westmorland County, PA. Do you have references to his death having been somewhere else?

Our Oliver Amsbury, died in Arrow Rock, MO., in 1867. He was from Maine. One of his daughters married a Huston, their son Fred H. Huston born 31 August 1885, died here in Los Angeles Co., CA., on 12 April 1969

So you can see that I did get her maiden name:
Addie R. Amsbury and that Fred was in Calif. not so lucky with Harry C. yet!

RE: Headstone Photo
Yes you can use the photo. Thanks for asking. Most people just use photos without asking.

What is your line back to Jacob? Jacob is also my 6th great Grandfather.

Hi Michelle,
Thanks for sponsoring! I'm also happy to transfer, but if you'd like any memorial BESIDES William can you sent me a "Suggest a Correction" from each memorial? Makes it easier for me!
Thanks :)

I've transferred the grave, as you requested. Yes, I created the memorials (as it will state at the bottom of the memorial) but I don't know what photo you asked about. I didn't post any photos, and I didn't see that anyone else had, but if they do, just look under the photo and it will give you the name of whoever posted it. (Anyone can post photos on a memorial--manager doesn't have control over that). Personally I don't care if I get any credit for what I post, I'm just glad to get the info. out there for family to use.

You're welcome, Michelle. I was looking for my own relatives, and decided to check if anyone had a photo request pending. Digital cameras make it so easy. I'm glad I could help.

Hi Michelle! I am in the process of transferring Rozella Amsbury's memorial to you; took a minute for me to find your contributor ID. I'm always happy to reunite ancestors and their loved ones. :)

William West
Hi Michelle,
If you have Sally and know where she is buried I will add her. She is not in the Presbertian cemetery where William West, Arethusa, Cynthia and William West Jr. are buried.
You can link them or I can link them if you want. I never added her because I don't know where Sally is.
Arethusa is my 4th great grandmother with Timothy Thayer.

I've transferred the records, but I'm afraid the puppy isn't mine to give, LOL! Even if he was, he wouldn't be a puppy anymore (mine is 9 yrs old).

Thank you for the information on Alexander Worth Mills and his wife, Mary L. Mills. I noticed that you are maintaining his mother's memorial. Would you like me to transfer Alexander and his wife to you?
