It would seem that we are related. Have you seen my tree on ancestry?

I have not had a chance to check my e-mails, yet will today. A lot happened during the holidays, namely a surprised wedding of our daughter.

RE: Trolier
I've asked gina to include this in the bio section on Joe and Helen...

Daily Local News. West Chester, Chester County, Pa

A Chester County couple died yesterday in a highway accident on Rt. 322 near Beartown, just across the county line in Caernarvon Township, Lancaster County.

The victims were identified as Joseph Trolier and his wife, Helen, both 70, of Honey Brook.

Police said the couple's car swerved off the highway and slammed into a tree.

RE: Trolier
You'll notice on Helen and Joes entries, I've added their daughter who died in Florida in November.

You can also ask Gina to transfer ownership of those entries to your care. That way, if you want to add something, you don't have to go through her to do that. Ownership gives you full control of the entry with the exception of DELETING it.

Both Gina and I agree, that we'd much rather give the entry to a family member to care for, than for us (strangers) to do it. So, she'll be agreeable to the request. In the mean time, I'll be giving the daughter to your care.

RE: Trolier
Yes, I take photos. You'll see my name all over chester county cemetery entries. I'm about 8 miles from Honey Brook Methodist, but when I see that Gina made the entry, I sit on my heels cause I know she has the photo. If a bit of time passes, and the snow isn't deep, I'll venture up that way.

Because the dates intrigue me, I'm gonna do a little digging here to find what's up with the identical death dates. It is either a fatal accident or a suicide pact- or maybe some other bizarre happening.

Down on the bottom left of the entry is a name:
"Created by: Gina Reardon-Gaddis"

If you click on that name, you will be able to send her a note that you are looking for the photos.

You really don't have to do it. You can leave your request out there and wait for the photos to be taken.

I just happen to know, that Gina has already taken the photo- her 'motis operendi' is to photo the stone, add an entry to findagrave, but she doesn't bother to post the photo.

Now, Gina has also moved from Honey Brook to North Carolina, and I'm not sure is she is still getting alerts for up here or not.

So, having said all of that, it's totally your call on the photos.


On another note, it appears both Helen and her husband died on the same day. Are you interested in the back story or do you already know the details?

Happy New Year.

I saw your request for photos in Honey Brook Methodist. Make sure you contact the owner of those entries- I know Gina already has the photos. Further, did you see this obit? You should link her to her parents. Your call.

I'm sure Gina will come though, but a little nudge wouldn't hurt. You can tell her I told you to contact her. Happy New Year.
