The photo on memorial 26828688 is incorrect, neither the age nor the date match those on the memorial.

I have a photo of the proper stone, I found it laying against the large Bucher family plot marker though I can find no holes or empty bases nearby to indicate where it was originally located. Are there any ties between the Barnitz and Bucher family that you know of?

Charles Barnitz
Memorial #26828688

Either the photo on this memorial is incorrect, or the dates on the memorial itself are incorrect. I have found a stone for a Charles Barnitz with dates exactly matching those on the memorial. It had either fallen over or been removed from its original location, I found it leaning face down against the very large stone marking the Bucher family plot so I pulled it out and stood it up to photograph it. If you think this is actually the correct stone for the memorial let me know and I'll upload the photo.

Marion Brammer
Hi Sara,

It's been a while. But I think I have come across another member of your Family.

I came across a Funeral notice for Marion Brammer, Wife of William. Funeral arrangements handled by Jay Chapel for burial in Arbor Vitae. Is this the same person I have listed as Mary Loving Brammer? They share the same death date.

At the same time I found the wedding announcement of Delores Brammer to William Saunders.

If this is your family let me know how you want them sent.

Michael/Lena Faust
Hi! While researching my family history, I found myself on Find-A-Grave.

I am writing to you to see what, if any, connection exists between our ancestors.

I have been researching my family for several years, but have not been able to get past my g-g-grandfather, Michael Faust. From family records I believe that he was born in Hesse Germany (Prussia) in 1823 and came to America prior to 1880. I see him listed in the 1880 census in Indianapolis with his wife, Magdalena ("Lena") and children.

I appreciate any assistance you can provide.

Good Conduct Medal on Skaggs
Hold that thought. I just ran across the Coffelt Data base which is pretty accurate. He did in fact earn the Good Conduct Medal. My apologies.

Sara, I just learned that Harold Skaggs Jr didn't earn the Good Conduct Medal. Marine Corps dictates that they have to be in for Four or more years. Could you erase that part in his bio? Thanks.

Gerald (Jerry) White
I have found many photographs that Jerry took of himself and my Aunt Mary during the 1940's. I would like to send them to some of the family member if they would like to have them. My aunt went out with him for a while in the Pasadena Calif area for a while.I am going through all of the family pictures and found these. Hope some of the family would like to have them.

Peter Gray Sr., Peter Gray Jr. and wives
Regarding Peter Gray Sr. and son Peter Gray Jr. and their wives, they are buried in the small Gray Family Cemetery south of the much larger Grays Cemetery near Stormstown, Centre Co. Pennsylvania.

For Peter Gray Jr.
Your memorial 51705942 should be deleted, since 62114962 is where the headstone is.

For wife Mary "Polly" Hyskell Gray:
Your memorial 51706159 should be deleted, since 62115013 is where the headstone is.

For Peter Gray Sr.
Your memorial 51701196 should be deleted, as he is buried in an unmarked grave at the Gray Family Cemetery near his son Peter Gray Jr. above.

For wife Eve Ann Kreider Gray:
Your memorial 51705702 should be deleted, as she is buried in an unmarked grave near her husband at the Grays Family Cemetery.

I can send you a scan of two pages of information collected by the Centre County Genealogical Society regarding the "Gray Family Cemetery" that confirms the above.

Markers at Gray Family Cemetery instead of Gray's Cemetery
There are four memorials that you have assigned to Gray's Cemetery which are more likely at "Gray Family Cemetery" a nearby, smaller, older and lesser known cemetery. I can send you documentation on this Gray Family Cemetery taken from a cemetery compilation by the Centre County Genealogical Society.

Peter Gray Jr:
Your memorial #51705942 should be as #36071221
wife Mary "Polly" Hyskill Gray:
Your memorial #51706159 should be as #62115013

Peter Gray (Sr):
Your memorial #51701196 should likely be an unmarked field stone at Gray Family Cemetery.
wife Eve Ann Kreider Gray:
Your memorial #51705702 should likely be an unmarked field stone at Gray Family Cemetery.

You're doing great work. Thanks for your MANY contributions!

My wife is a direct descendant of the above Grays.

Hi Sara, My grandfather Vincent Ruiz worked at Brammer Shoes in Madera for years, and I have very fond memories of that store. Thanks for the work you've done here on Find A Grave!

Maria L (Fisher) Barnitz
I know you are interested in the Barnitz family and unfortunately I have nothing to contribute. But since Daniel J Barnitz married my ggg aunt, I was wondering if you had any information on the Fisher family. I only know the parents names. Also do you know the birthdates of Daniel and Maria's four children? Ann of Tampa, FL #46820446 in findagrave. Thanks!

McClean Family
Hello Sara,

This is the first time I've been back on this site since I joined in May. I was excited by your response. In 1999, I spent 6 weeks trekking through PA researching family. Among the many highlights were visiting the Historic Presbyterian Cemetary in Uniontown, the Marsh Creek Cemetary, attending services at the Marsh Creek Presbyterian Church and discovering the monument to Archibald in York. I'd love to chat and share family info, photos, etc.

I look forward to hearing from you.

I'm glad I was able to find your loved one and to put a smile on you and grandmothers faces. It always makes me feel good when I can help out. If you have anymore loved ones in this area I would be happy to try and locate them for you.

God bless

RE: Alexander White Headstone/Forest Lawn
You're welcome! I often get random photos when I'm out to get a volunteer photo and I'll post them on memorials already made. It's nice of you to notice. (Most people don't, but they probably don't visit the online memorials that often, either, who knows)!
Anyway, I'm happy to transfer Margaret and I've already done so. Take care! -Carolyn

RE: Mudersbach's
Hi Sara--no, you go ahead and keep them--nice job. I am sure you know that my brother Evert, Todd's Dad has passed away. Is it possible we can get a link added under Elbert and Preble for him. I can give you you whatever you need. Also one of my daughter's passed away last Sept and a friend did post it in Find a Grave--is it possible to attach that link to Elbert and Preble?
