Haller Family Cemetery
Billy,

You and I have some Haller ancestors in common. I have tried to locate the Haller Family Cemetery but failed. I presume it is somewhere off Route 42 west of Woodstock. You have clearly been there, judging from the photos you have posted. Can you give me specific directions to the cemetery?

Thank,
Teresa

Do you mind if I copy your notes to my ancestry files, with credit to you of course.
Thank you

RE: Karoly & Pearl Ordey
Sometimes one gets lucky...what was impossible last week was made obtainable cause of the sharp-eyed guy with the weed whacker. He must have had just enough sun that day to hit at the right angles so that he caught it and went to work. Even so, you can see he was cautious not to damage the marker.
Something told me to go check it and there it was!
What could be done is a work order to dog around it say 3" or so - that's been done in other cases - and it seems to curb the grass from overspreading it at a later date. Glad we got to 'get er done!'...

Dana Dancy
St. James cemetery, Lititz, PA
Just thought you would like to know that the St. James cemetery is being restored. There was a news article on TV tonight, asking for volunteers Saturday morning (Aug. 3). I believe it stated they dug up over 100 gravestones and the Moravian church along with volunteers will be using the original burial plot diagram to place the dug up gravestones in their correct spots. Many of the gravestones had sunk and also had been moved from a long ago restoration and apparently the cemetery was previously used by local children as a playground.
You might want to remove your photo request for Johannes Haller (memorial #56864000) and wait a couple of weeks, then request it again. I am going to try and visit the cemetery soon.
Best wishes, Dana

Dear Bill,

I came across the limited marriage data for Barbara Rinker's parents in ScV. Henry Rinker married Christina Waggoner on 27sep1783 in ScV (Shenandoah County, Virginia). Age, marital status, birth place and parent's names were blank.

No ScV marriage record was found for Barbara & Adolph.

Always, in Find A Grave brotherhood,

RE: Nelson E. Burroughs
The only person I know in that photo is Nelson. Myrtle isn't in that photo. Sorry I can't be of more help. Not too long ago, I did come across another photo of Nelson and Myrtle and others who I believe are Nelson's family. I can't put my hands on it this minute, but when I do, I will let you know so I can get it to you.

Thanks for the transfer of Myrtle's memorial. I appreciate it.

I saw the photo you have of Nelson Burroughs. I believe you got that from me a few years ago! So good to see it on his page!

request for transfer
Bill,
Would you transfer Myrtle Virginia Hillard Burroughs to me? I am not a direct relative, but I am the closest there will ever be. Myrtle's mother, Gertude Price Hillard, and my great-grandfather, Montgomery Price, were siblings. Montgomery and his wife raised my father (their grandson). Growing up, my father and Myrtle were very close and remained so through their lives. Myrtle was an only child. Myrtle married, but had no children. Her husband died in the 1950's. My father was her closest relative, and she was like an aunt to my sister and me. We visited her regularly or she visited us. She was always with us for holidays and birthdays. When she passed, my dad was her sole beneficiary. To this day, I have pieces of her furniture all over my house. Considering the close relationship I've had with Myrtle, and the fact that she had no family of her own, would you please consider transferring her memorial to me? Her findagrave # is 74650799.
Thanks!
Nancy Vest

RE: John Coffelt (1813 - 1895)
Bill,

I found an obit for Rebecca Coffelt (d 1896) and a wedding write-up for Lucy Virginia Coffelt and Joseph F Hottel, and posted them. I didn't find an obit for Christina but my search was brief.

You can search in "Chronicling America" (CA) newspapers. First narrow the search to Virginia newspapers. Search on "Coffelt" and any known variations. (CA won't allow wild-card searches). Then sort the results by date and scroll through to the year you're looking for and ignore papers from the wrong cities.

Sometimes word searches don't work because the characters aren't recognized. In that case you might search on her maiden name (often mentioned in obits). Or, since you know the date she died, go to the next issues of the local paper and "read" them and hope you find it.

My family surname is spelled various ways. I knew that my Missouri great grandfather visited Roanoke relatives in 1897, but I couldn't find it by searching the Roanoke paper for his surname. So I searched on his sister's married surname and found it. They had spelled his name the way Virginia relatives spell it.

I use a digital image editing program called GIMP to tidy up. Most CA images are dark and not level. I typically use the GIMP functions in this order: Whiten; straighten; enhance if needed (darkens and sharpens text); erase old borders; enlarge the canvas; add credits and date; crop; add border. Some obits are too big to download in one piece, so you have to download pieces, clean them up, and digitally reattach them.

Happy hunting!
