Would you be willing to transfer his memorial to me? I have so much I'd like to add and attach his family / our family. Thank you so very much for all your hard work, from the bottom of my heart. Are you related?

Oh My. That is excellent work. I would be willing to trade work for work. I am attempting to connect my Shields line, missing one or two generations and have DNA to prove where I am, but it's been a tough road. I can't believe you found all of this, I've been looking for ages. You have one keen eye. I appreciate all you've done. Warm Regards, B Shields

I am interested in this person that you had requested a photo of. Do you have this grave listed?

I have a relative by the name of Alexander O'Neil who was married to Emma Barton. I am looking for info on him, and can not find him on here.

Brazella Foor
Hi Joe,
If you can give me your email address I can send a couple more pages of Brazella Foor's military record. I am limited to 5 pages on Find A Grave.

RE: 208th Pennsylvania
Hi Joe,
That is the information I written on Brazella from his record. Did we already contact one another? I don't see you on my record of people I have contacted.
I will add some of his military record to his webpage for you. There are about 50 pages so I will just add the few that would be specific to him and his family.

William Smith grave photo
Hi there,
I was in Pottsville today and looked for this grave to take a photo. Unfortunately, I could not find it. That cemetery is in very bad shape with more than half the stones overturned and many other unreadable. I left the request open - maybe someone else will be able to locate it? Sorry!

I translated what I could. Some of the Cyrillic is difficult to see.

BTW-Great job at that cemetery.
