L K King
Otto Family in Fairview Cemetery
Hello Michael, First, I totally agree with your views as stated in your profile.
Next, thanks for all of the extra information that is attached to (at least) the memorials of the Otto family members buried in Fairview Cemetery in Altoona, Blair, PA.
With all of the information I was wondering if you are somehow related to this family. I am related (or so I think) I have my third great grandfather and family in Bedford. But with this other line of this family I am having some difficulty making sure who, how and where they belong. If you are related possibly you have some information that would help me. Thanks.

Just a Hello
Haven't been working on my ancestry stuff for quite some time but am trying to pick up where I left off...not so easy. Your name always seems to pop up, as going through my Uncles papers and such, and now here on this site. I was wondering if you were still around and doing any research?

Still hope to make it to the Stone House in Akersville someday, enjoy talking with the owners and seeing all the progress they have done.
Cheers, Penni

Hello Michael,
Would it be alright to use a photo that you took of Jacob Smiths' [1834-1916] stone to put on my ancestry page? I will certainly give you credit.

Leona Henderson
Henderson, John M and Eliza A

While researching the Henderson's in Westmoreland, Pennsylvania, I came across this wedding date for John M (# 106588764)and Eliza A HUNTZBERGER (# 123161160)in an excerpt of newspapers. The date is listed as "m. 22nd ult. by Rev. A. Torrance (4-11-1866 RD)"

If that is enough to add to their memorial, it may help family members trying to find important dates.

Mary E. Johnson Hayden
I see by the photo that a headstone could not be found for Mary E. Johnson Hayden, Samuel L. Hayden's second wife. Mary's marriage to Samuel was also her second marriage. She was first married to Lieutenant David Perry, a Civil War veteran, who died in 1863. Mary is buried with her first husband at Spring Grove Cemetery. Johnson was her maiden name. Mary's sister, Maggie Johnson, and David's brother, George W. Perry married each other. So sisters married brother. They are all buried at Spring Grove on the same lot. Hope this helps, although it can be very confusing.

PA Death Certificates
I'm not sure if you were aware or not, but has been uploading all of the PA Death Certificates. They're up to 1924 and hope to have them all up to 1963 by this November.

No more paying for them and waiting 2 months to get them back only to hope it's the right one!

Echard Markers

I looked for the Echard markers at the Pine Grove UBC Church in Puzzletown today. It was very overgrown, and I didn't have a lot of time to try to pull back the over growth. Will attempt again soon.

Anna M. Shomo
I just want to thank you so much for posting the information & photo of Anna M. Shomo. I have been looking for Anna's 1st husband, Henry Shomo for many years & I was so hoping he was buried near Anna. He then married Harriet Gamble my gr. grandmother, but he is not buried with her at the Coles Cemetery in Derry, Pa.I have a book on the Shomo's stating he is buried here but can not find any record. I was hoping you might be of some help. Henry is my 2nd gr. grandfather & has been a mystery for many years. Thank you for your time & hard work helping people find the missing pieces to their family history.
