Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been adding older memorials in my area over the winter months and plan to go out, find and photograph them when it warms up. Any information you have to add to any of my memorials would be appreciated. I search the old newspapers for old obits. and also look up the death certificates, as sometimes the obit. does not give specific birthdates, parents, etc...this information is not always correct, but if it is there, I will list it and make a note where that info. came from. If you want me to add information or change anything, please list your source.

I have no problem with transfers if they are not related to me, but please, only ask if you plan to add to the memorial.

Any of my headstone photos may be used anywhere you'd like, I only ask that you give me credit for the photo.

Thanks.

Great. I have a lot of requests for Cedar Grove that have been languishing for quite some time.

Then that was where I heard it was unmarked. Thanks again!

Thank you! Especially since my information was that his grave was unmarked. Looks like my information was wrong.

RE: James Spahr
Hi Karen,

He was baptized James Black Spahr but I changed the memorial when I found his death certificate. Perhaps the d/c is incorrect because the names of his parents are correct.

Thank you so much for photographing his stone in Cedar Grove. I truly appreciate it.

Emma Croft
Karen,

I just checked Emmas's death certif. She is not at Cedar Grove. She is at Norland. I apologize for my error! I hope you did not go to a lot of trouble to look for a photo of her grave.

I corrected the cemetery on her memorial.

RE: David Croft 30240653
Thank you, Karen. It is possible that Emma is with her first spouse, but I don't know when he died... or there is just no marker for her. I will see if her name shows up on the Houpt Index.

David Croft 30240653
Hi Karen,

I see that you put a photo on the memorial for David Croft. I added his 2 wives to findagrave and wonder if you have photos of their graves. Perhaps their names are other sides of David's headstone. His wives are: Ellenora W Kinneard Croft (145060287) and Emma Catherine Zimmerman Croft (145063456). Emma's grave might show Emma C Brewer Croft since she was married to a George W Brewer before she and David married.

If you don't have photos of the ladies' graves, that is okay. I am sure you or I will come across them.

Thanks!

RE: Cedar Grove
Karen,

It was great meeting you as well! I am amazed you knew who I was after having met once a few years ago!

I found all of the graves I was looking for except 2 - Grace Keefer Ross in G210 and the Harts (Lavinia and Milton) in A 183/185. I believe Grace does not have a marker and it is possible that the Harts also don't. I know that Grace should be with her parents (Moses and Margaret) whose headstone is behind Isaac H Keefer's, but I found none for Grace unless hers is the tall, white, illegible one. I did not have a map of section A, so I may have simply overlooked theirs. I will look again sometime. Of course, if you happen upon them, feel free to photograph it!

Hope to see you again sometime while ancestor hunting.

Wanda
