Bio and Links
Bio Photo Live in Mount Carmel,Pennsylvania. Trying to find other family members of Harold Seibert Miller(father),John Seibert Miller(Gf),William Miller(Ggf)Lafayette Derr(MGgf),Israel Derr(MGGgf),John William Boyer(MGf), Joseph Boyer(MGGf). Also related to the Weikels, Kerstetters and Updegrove(sp?)

After being called out by someone for misinformation, I would like to set the record straight. I spent over 12 years of my life reading 104 years of local newspapers in the Mount Carmel and Shamokin Pennsylvania area. My data comes from personally reading every obituary printed in those papers. Additional data was taken directly from death records read by me. Those records were taken directly from the death certificates written by the attending doctor/coroner upon that person's death. My "Lost Little Angels" & "Lost Angel" data was taken from their obituary or death certificate. I trust the doctor's information but the newspaper data I took with a grain of salt as the saying goes.

That's because after doing my research, I found out that reporters back then did not necessarily care if what they reported was correct or correctly spelled. A prime example was the death of a child named "Kulick" (correct spelling). One local newspaper had it correct, the other had it spelled "Coolick". The worse misspelling I found was this example. The one obituary listed the name as "Isaback", the correct spelling was "Eisenbaugh" and people wonder why they can't find their ancestor with reporters like this, that made these examples. So if the data I post is incorrect, don't kill the messenger, blame the reporter who didn't give a cr@p to make sure they reported the right information. I can only post the information taken from the obituary, how am I suppose to know if said information was incorrect. I tried to look for updated obituaries to make sure I had the right data but most times there was only one obituary and that's what I used. Please accept my apology for venting on here but I have spent a good part of my life trying to help fellow genealogist and to be called out because of misinformation hurt me.

As far as changing incorrect information, I am happy to do so. I am also willing to transfer any memorial. As most people know, it is very difficult to read sandstone headstones, especially if they're weathered. So please take the time to read any stone you may be concerned about the information I may have used. After all it is very subjective material and open for interpretation. Using special filters, I gave it my best shot but I'm not sure on some stones and even went back to actually feel the lettering or numbers, it's still guess work in some cases.


**************************************************

PLEASE feel free to visit my "Lost Little Angels" & "Lost Angels" Virtual Cemeteries anytime and leave them a Flower or Note. These children & adults are lost in time because they have no headstone to tell us where they are buried in a cemetery or even on a family plot. My own twin brother and sister Daniel & Nancy Miller are a part of this group. So is my Maternal Great Grandmother. Records usually don't help, they simply say yes, they're here but where, we don't exactly know. Just remember, you may be the only other person beside myself to visit a "Lost Little Angel" or "Lost Angel". Some of these lost children may not even have a living ancestor,"PLEASE VISIT THEM". Thank You from the bottom of My Heart.

RE: Grandmother's memorial
Hi Bob
We made the 2 Hour trek today . It made my elderly mom so happy to leave a silk flower arrangement at the grave...
Thank you for taking the time, effort and energy to create your memorial website. It made finding my grandmother and great grandparents so much easier....
We did ride into Mt Carmel. But obviously a lot has changed. My mom thought she grew up on 5th street. I will check your data base.
God Bless and Thank you.
You must be a very special person to have done this.

Thank you
Dear Robert.
Thank you for your posting of my grandmother's gravestone.
I will be bringing my mom, Stella ' s daughter to place a flower on her mom's grave.
My mom is living with myself , husband and 8 year old daughter.She is very sharp but frail in body. .
My mom will be 87 in May and this is very important to her and me. We live in the Wyoming /Exeter PA area. I know little about my grandmother except she had spunk. I like to think that I got my string will from her. My mom is very strong willed too. My mom taught me the beauty of adoption as she wished she could have been adopted as her mom died when she was so young.She was moved from home to home until she came to live with my great Aunt at age 12. Ironically our daughter came to us through the beautiful gift of adoption.A real miracle....
Thank you again for honoring my grandmom. I would love to go on Ancestry. Com and learn more about my family.....
Sincerely
Lori Alesson LAlesson@verizon.net

RE: Transfer
Dear Robert,

Thanks so much for helping me with the information on Jean. It was greatly appreciated.

I am now just starting to work on my family tree. It was really wonderful to discover "Find A Grave" and have the information at my finger tips. You have done an amazing and very impressive job recording all of these memorials and grave sites.

Thanks again for all of your hard work!

Kind Regards,
Christine M. Udinskey
