RE: Mary (Benney) Rearick
Jay, as usually happens when I try to recall things instead of consulting my sources I made a couple errors in my earlier reply about the Benney family. You can get the facts straight by consulting the Find A Grave memorials. In addition to Mary there was another daughter "Mamie" who got lost in the shuffle. She married a Charles Thoms from Baltimore.

RE: Mary (Benney) Rearick
Hi Jay, the Benney family was a mess. David suffered a heat stroke and went a little bonkers. His wife left him and took only the two youngest of seven children. The divorce proceedings dragged on for 18 or 19 years during which time she was living with another man and had two more pseudo-husbands in Baltimore and West Virginia after him. I was told that when she came to Pennsylvania to visit my grandmother refused to allow her in the house. I have no idea what became of Mary nor do I know the gender of the child.

It has been done. You can check to see if I missed anything.

RE: Helen Gunsalus
Hi, thank you for being open minded. The flower did make me a little nervous about linking them since I don't want to upset any one's family. Thank you for removing the flower.

I liked Wayne's idea for a bio and if you don't mind I can just add that for now. And as you do more research on the family you can give me updates to add to the bio. Just let me know.

Have a great day!

RE: Helen Gunsalus
Hey Jay,

I concur with your scenario. It seems very plausible

For Toner's memorial would you please consider the following revised bio:

Toner Lucas Gunsallus married Ida A. Eddinger on 3 Sep 1908. They had two children Grace and Harry. Following Ida's death in 1915, Tony married second Bertha Eliza Hilins on 5 Aug 1915 in Frankstown, Blair, Pennsylvania. They had one child, Margaret who died at 10 months. This marriage ended in divorce around 1920. On 3 Feb 1921 Toner married third Madge Lee Pryor. In the mid 1920's Tony married fourth Emma L. Yeisly. They had one son, Stewart, in 1927.

Toner Lucas Gunsallus, of 5411 Inec St., Orlando, Fla., who made his home with a son, Stewart, died this week at the Orlando Hospital after a weeklong illness. He was born July 1, 1885, at Bald Eagle, a son of Frank and Annabell Hoover Gunsallus. Surviving are a daughter, Grace Crowell, Tyrone, a son, Stewart, of Orlando. A son, Harry, was killed in World War II. Also surviving are two brothers, Frank, of Tyrone, and John of Tipton, and three grandsons. Funeral services will be held Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Shultz Funeral Home. Tyrone Daily Herald, September 10, 1966.

Your welcome, I got lucky finding the Wagner marker, found it while looking for someone else. If it is important to you the marker is located in the middle of the St. Agnes section.


My 3x great-grandfather served in the 9th Pennsylvania Reserves, Company B known as the Garibaldi Guards and was commander of the GAR post in Etna Pa. Also have a relative who was 1st Lt. in the 139th Pa Infantry.

RE: John Fasbaugh
I think I did the edits you requested. I have not done this before so if it is not there please let me know what you need me to do.

RE: John Fasbaugh
Hi, I am somewhat new to Find A Grave and I have done edit request that I have received notice of through my personnel email. I did not know that people have been requesting me to do edits otherwise. I just noticed these when I got your message. It looks like I have several and it will take sometime. I am not feeling well and I am hosting a major reunion at my home very soon. I will try to get to this after Labor Day. Feel free to remind me if I forget.
