St. Aloysius, St. Thomas & St. Augustine Cemeteries (Northern Cambria County)

I did a good search of these three cemeteries and surprisingly, didn't find very many of the numerous outstanding requests which is odd, because some of them are newer burials (1950's, 60's and later). One was even in 2010.

One person in particular, Richard Patz #82125151- his obit states that services were held at St. Aloysius, but it doesn't state that he was actually buried there. He could have been cremated or buried at nearby St. Francis (less likely). Another was Wayne Weaver in the same cemetery who died in 2010. I know I've had to start wearing cheater glasses to read but I can't see how I missed so many memorials in these 3 cemeteries.

Anyhow, I'm not going to make any notes under "report problems" because perhaps someone else will have better luck. Plus, when other volunteers see a problem many times they won't read the problem, they'll just skip over it and not try to look for it.

As for the many infants you've submitted requests for based off of death certificates, the majority don't have headstones so I'm going to assume they're buried in an unmarked grave with their parents. So I'm going to do what I normally do and post a photo of the unmarked grave with the accompanying note.

Just thought I'd pass this along...

Calvary Requests
Check on your person you requested in J also. I have it totally photographed and uploaded. Unless I missed it it isn't marked. Ask if they both have headstones and let me know. I'll go back and look if they do.

Beulah Weakland - Calvary
I've photographed the whole of section C so if Beulah Weakland doesn't have a picture, she doesn't have a stone.

RE: Bedford County
That's what IOOF means, but I wasn't aware that Bedford County had one. They may, I was just never aware of it.

RE: Forlina-St. Joseph's.
Actually, I re-shot all of St. Joseph's, Coupon, with a better camera that eliminates the down-your-nose view of the tombstones. (This camera has a view-finder on a hinge that can be held waist-high). My intention was to replace all my earlier Coupon pics eventually, so by singling out the Forlinas, they end up beating out everyone else.

James & Matthew McKenzie
These 2 graves are unmarked. They are in a section that I have totally photographed. It has been verified that these graves are unmarked. Please see the bio section of the records.

RE: Swanson-Richland
No, thank you. I've been working on the East End Cemetery in Windber off and on when I get time. There was a large population of Swede's around the turn of the last century and many of them are buried here.

This cemetery is well-known for missing stones so anytime I do any work on a Swedish family that leads me to Windber, like James Swanson's family, it ends up allowing me to add a few more memorials at East End.

RE: Wilhelm-St. Joseph's
It's the same cemetery. Technically it's in Moon Township, but they use the Coraopolis zip code. So it depends on what side of the tracks you want to be

Yes my doctor is glad I take those walks too. The stones are easy to find when you put the plot and the correct name in the record. LOL. We have had some beautiful days which makes the walking even better. That one was in a section I haven't photographed yet.

RE: Anderson & Ridinger-Richland
No problem. It takes time for me to build memorials because I try to be as complete and accurate as possible as if they were my own family.

sorry - that should have read the three stones are the only "stones" in the family plot.

Jack, I did go back out and take another look. The plots are very close together, but I do think the three stones are the only plots in the Mowry plot. The other stones on the edge of the photo are actually facing the other way and go to the plot to the west of the Mowry one.
