RE: Barbara Selak
Hello, I found her obituary in The Gazette and Daily which is a York, PA paper. It was in the October 8, 1936 paper on page 6. I checked for her husband but they didn't have one for him, unfortunately. Their son's obit came up though and I added that to his page. His was in The Gazette and Daily paper dated March 5, 1954 page 47. I double checked on that page number and there were that many pages!! Hope I helped. Take Care, Laura Hershey

Thanks for finding this and posting. Wm J Greer was indeed the father of Tena, but her mother was initially (nee) Christina McLellan; married the widower Greer in Nova Scotia May 1880; he died 1917, and a few years later she married Jacob "Jack" Jacobsen; he died in 1931 and in 1941 she married Michael Gimse. Christy McLellan Greer Jacobsen Gimse gave all of her husbands nice gravestones in Arlington Cemetery in Arlington, Washington, but I have only found a possible maker for her.
Feel free to update Tena's site with this info (or not).

I would like to add a newspaper article about a fire to 3 graves. I don't know how to do this. Can I sent it to you?

Put in surname Long year 1900. You will find him in the death records. I think he is under N. Long.

Will send the short death notice, next time I am on that site.

RE: Kendtner
Mark I'm not sure if I'm replying in the correct place (sorry). I'm not sure what you mean by a transfer. Some additional information would be-
John and Charlotte Kendtner had two boys, Ernest and La Vergne and one girl Beulah all of whom are buried at Mt Olivet in Renton. Grandpa John came to California for work and died there in a mining accident, grandma Charlotte came to CA to claim his body and return him to Renton. The house they built in 1905 still stands today. Ernie and La Vergne married but had no children of their own. Beulah married several times, she is buried under her last married name as Beulah K.(her middle name is Hortense and the "K." is for Kendtner) Edwards. She is my great grandmother. She married Clell Tennel Cooper who served in the US Navy and is buried at the Veterans Cemetery in CA. They had one child my grandfather Roderick Clell Cooper who also served in the US Navy and will be 92 this August. Grandpa Rod married Barbara Elizabeth Smith and they had two children Linda Lee Cooper and Clell Cee Cooper. Uncle Clell Died when he was 20. Linda, my mother Linda married Patrick James Sullivan and had one son Shawn Anthony (Sullivan) Petraborg, then married John Harvey Petraborg and had one son Bryan John Petraborg. Bryan has two children and one granddaughter.
I have more information, we have a baby dress that came over from England in the late 1800's and almost every one of us has been photographed in it through the years. Grandma Charlotte was painted wearing the dress age 9 months (about 1871). As well as a family bible. And other interesting bits.
Feel free to contact me directly
