Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Brenda (Boyer) Kohr. My husband Pete and I are researching his side of the family (Kohr/Smith)&(Minnich/Buxton), as well as my own (Boyer/Grimes) & (Beil/Shott). We are not trying to see how many memorials we can amass so that we can have our numbers posted in the "Top Contributors" catagory. We want to make memorials to pay tribute to our families and friends and hopefully help others to find theirs.

We enjoy helping others by photographing grave markers. There are times that we may photograph markers that are near the ones we were asked to take photos of, or if we see one with our surnames. If there is no memorial for these extra photos that we take....I create one. If by chance I happen to create a memorial for a relative or a friend of yours don't hesitate to ask for a transfer. I don't feel the need to keep memorials that I have created. (unless they are family) I only created them so that someone may find a member of their family or a friend.

Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished marble stone

It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born

Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood and bone
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so

I wonder if you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you

Author Unknown


Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

RE: Greenawalt, Abraham
this info is very helpful. there are several Abraham Greenawalt's... tomorrow i'll try and figure out what's what!

i tried to enlarge the photo and did but it was still hard to tell what the inscription was. glad you were able to clear this up for me.

thank you!

RE: Greenawalt, Abraham
because i have his birth and death dates as 1700 - 1785. so those women were born after he died. i'm not saying i'm right, i just wanted clarification!

this dates on his immigration and the Pennsylvania historical literature support this. but who knows... 1700 - 1785 is a long time ago.

he immigrated in 1740 i think via Canada.

let me know what you find and i'll keep digging.

thanks for responding... Cynthia

Greenawalt, Abraham
Hi... I am doing research on the Greenawalt surname. this Abraham died before the indicated two wives were born. Fanny and Elizabeth - could they be grand daughters?? what makes you think they were his wives. just wondering! I'm not finding fault, I just don't want to update my tree unless I understand the info presented.

thanks in advance.

Okay - thanks for the response. Have you tried to delete it? I know with pictures added on my memorials, I have to get the person who added them to delete.

Hi - the above memorial which was added in 2010 and that you transferred to another member is a duplicate of Find A Grave 37374668 which was added in 2009 and should be removed as it adds confusion and was already there. Although you transferred the maintenance of it, only you or Find A Grave can remove it.
