Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've entered burials in all the Union County Pennsylvania cemeteries as transcribed by Mrs. Martha Bartol between 1915 and 1924. Mrs. Bartol was historian for the Shikelimo Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution from 1912 to 1931 and as such conducted the earliest known effort to record all the inscriptions found in the Lewisburg Cemetery as well as all the early burials county wide. Many of the stones she recorded are no longer legible or are now missing so her transcription is an invaluable resource for the counties cemeteries. Keep in mind that some of the stones were already difficult to read when she recorded them, so there will be some errors. The entries will have a note that Mrs. Bartol was the source for the information. Sam Alcorn's transcription (available from the Union County Historical Society on CD) was used to complete the record for those people who were still living in 1924 but had already erected a stone in the Lewisburg cemetery.

I'm happy to transfer these memorials if I have no relation to them.

Well, don't worry. Unfortunately I removed the request and don't know who to contact to get actual cemetery info.
Unless you do?

Wow, that was quick! And yes, I'll leave the source information in place. I wish every contributor that used transcriptions to create memorials would give credit to the transcriptor and the date the transcriptions were made. Good job on your part. Thank you, Stephanie

RE: Chautauqua Co transfers
Forrest,

Don't feel that way at all and you may find I have more as many of the families in these two big Forestville cemeteries run together. I would rather transfer someone to maintain them as people do the same for me. So if you run into anymore don't be afraid to ask.

Also thanks it was much easier to transfer when you sent each request.

Regards,

Mark Peebles
