RE: Maley Marsh - Part 2
Thank you for the information for Manley Marsh. I will need to go through my notes to see what I have to verify this information. I am an Ancestry member, but do not have access to Canadian documents. The Marsh family are distant relatives so I have not done that much research on that family.

Brown Idella @ Woodland
I am showing Idella is buried in an unmarked grave but we will verify. He is also buried with a child who lived for five hours. If you email me, I will send you the burial records. Michelle

RE: Thanks
I don't know that I absolutely need any info about Frank. I will be able to access the PA death certificate from Ancestry. His parent's names are the only item I would like to definitely add, and they should be on the DC. I will caution you to not add too many details to the memorial. We don't add names of living relatives from obits, I don't add causes of death after 1946, following the now old-fashion rule of protecting personal information for at least 70 years. Some people just add too much. But the name of his parents added to the cemetery records will help people in the future when they ask for links to their family.

As for guiding you to family, there are 439 Browns in Greenwood, and I still have to add from 1942 through 1990. I know how difficult linking can be (I'm looking for a Smith!!!)All I can say is to scan the list every now and then. I am adding names as I can. Work is slow as I just had open heart surgery.

I added the obituary to Joseph's memorial. To see it you'll have to click on the additional photos link under the photos that are showing. I added the updated information as well.

I don't know what names you are researching, etc., but I know there are Brown's at Benshoff Hill Cemetery. If you ever need anything up there just let me know. I've taken quite a few photos up there that I'm still in the process of building memorials for. As I do the background research on them and it leads me to more family members, I'm also finding more unmarked graves of family members buried there as well.

Anyhow, I'm glad I was able to help.

RE: Thanks
Well, I appreciate your kind words and your zeal for researching your family so I made a trip back to Richland. I wanted to get a good photo before the snow started since we're supposed to get anywhere up to 8" up here starting tonight through Thursday.

Anyhow, I placed a flag holder and flag so that way I could get a proper photo of his headstone in honor of his WWI service. I did look around the area but did not see any sign of Blanche or Joseph, Jr. The one photo I posted shows the large area around his stone that is bare, so it is possible that there could be unmarked graves there. You'd have to contact the office and have them pull the plot card to see who is there. Their number is (814) 266-2972 if you do call. The main staff member there is Roger.

I've been doing this for over 30 years and have worked on many projects documenting groups of people such as Irish-Catholics, African-American's and Eastern Europeans (none of whom I'm connected with). So many of these people seem to be in unmarked graves in this area which is sad, so I've been trying to do what I can to document as much as I can on this site for them so at least there is some kind of record.

I took a military leave day tomorrow so I still plan to hit the library for some things. I'm still going to pull Joseph's obit. I'll post it to his memorial so you can copy it off of there if you want. I have the index to the local obits so I know he has one. Once I have his full death date I'll transfer his memorial to you. I'd rather them be in the hands of family when possible.

I hope this helps. As I retire this year from the Army and think back to all of my family that served from PA (including 2 of my sons), it was my honor to place that flag on Joseph's grave. At least I hope that somewhere, someplace this day he's looking down knowing he's not forgotten.

RE: Thanks
You're very welcome- glad to help. I saw Joseph Brown's headstone a short distance away and now I wish I would have photographed it not knowing at the time that it applied.

It's not a problem getting back there since I work nearby, but we're supposed to get another round of snow and his marker is flush with the ground, so I'll get the best photo I can. I'm stopping at the library tomorrow afternoon and while I'm there I was going to pull his obituary to get his full death date (unless you know it already). After I had his full information I was going to transfer it to you as I did his daughter's.

I treat each memorial with the same care and respect as if they were my own family so I try to be as complete as possible or I would have transferred it already, thus the reason why I was waiting for his full death.

Also, he doesn't have a flag holder for his war service but I keep a stock of extra's, so when I take the photo of his marker, I'll have that fixed so the picture will be fitting with the flag.

If you ever need anything out this way, don't ever hesitate to drop me a line.

RE: Thank You
You're welcome...sorry it took so long! I was in the right area but couldn't read her stone the 1st time. I went back the other day and could read it perfectly. Lighting is so important when trying to read old stones!

Hi, I finally found the location where Girthalee Bogan is buried. She does not have a headstone. I took a picture where she is buried at. If you wanted it posted. In the picture the orange cone is where her headstone is suppose to be. Thanks, Sharon

Hi, I was wondering about Girthalee Bogan location that you have listed. Calvary Cemetery does not have a section 58 at the cemetery. Thanks Sharon

Thanks for providing the section and lot. I would have not done it otherwise. It was amazing. It was the first gravestone I looked at when I got to that section.

RE: Thanks and Inquiry
Second Mt. Moriah is near my home and has a relatively small cemetery. After looking over the memorials for this cemetery, I realized that many of the graves have not been recorded. I did find the grave of one of my former students, Dexter Butts, while in the cemetery and added the records. My next project is to catalog the cemetery and make sure all the burials are recorded on Find A Grave. This will probably take several weeks. Thank you for your kind words. Vicki

Let me give some thought to who might be a good researcher in the area. I will get back to you by the weekend.
