Bio and Links
Bio Photo Lately I've been a little obsessed with adding names to the Washburn Street Cemetery in Scranton, Pennsylvania. I've found several ancestors buried there and then I read about the cemetery, I just couldn't help but want to add to it.
(I'm adding this info based on both Death Certificates and obituaries.)

PS - I sort of hate the fact that Davis and Davies are so interchangeable! It's annoying.

I live in Colorado and I'm very interested in family history. The whole reason I joined here was to find my ancestors. I love going to cemeteries and taking pictures. Many of my contributions are based off the photographs I take at these cemeteries.

Sometimes I have trouble reading the dates in the pictures - if you can help me you can click the Edit tab at the top and send me a message. I want to get it right! I like linking family members and adding any info you may have for me. :D

I'm more than happy to transfer memorials to family members!

The one nearest and dearest to my heart, my daddy, was the reason I joined. You can always stop by and leave flowers. <3

I helped Beth in Colorado to add all the folks in Lakeside Cemetery in Canon City. It took months, wasn't easy, but it was worth it!

My main interest names are:

A note about my photos - any headstone photos that I took, you have my permission to use on Ancestry or even your own family history pages, all I ask is that you note that I(Courtney Birkes) took the photo. Thank you :)

I was sorry to be unable to find Mary's headstone. I took a couple of pictures to show were it should be. Please feel free to delete them after you see them

Summerhill - Washburn Street Cemetery
Courtney, Please check on the Summerhills from Washburn Street Cemetery (Scranton, Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania). There are apparently more than one Stephen Summerhill. I believe that the wife of Naeomi is Stephen Summerhill born in 1889 (died 1961). I am wondering if the father of Stephen is also Stephen)? I have added photos of a Lloyd Stone with a James Lloyd, Stephen Summerhill and his wife Naomi and Elizabeth and Albert Kerrigan. Thanks, Doug Dudewicz

Alma Reese Harris
Hi Nicole,
Thank-you so much for posting Alma Reese Harris memorial to the Washburn St. Cemetery in Scranton. I have been looking for her date of death, and it has eluded me. She was my husband's Great Grandmother. I would like to know if you would transfer her to me, please? Her number at Find A Grave is 14455827, and mine is 47181695. Thank-you very much for adding her name to the site. I've been searching for years and have not found her name on any other lists at that cemetery. I just sent a link to connect her to her mother and father. You are also administrator to her mother, Mary Ann Reese, 134687483. Since you mentioned Davis in your bio, I thought I'd let you know her maiden name was also Davis. Which was on her death certificate. Thank-you for all that you do. We appreciate your hard work!
