RE: Zion Lutheran Church with George Beaver
Hi Dave,

Here is what I posted to the Zion cemetery page last night:

This cemetery is on land acquired around the middle of the 20th century by the U.S. Government for use as an ammunition depot. Today the land is called Letterkenny Army Depot and The Depot is headquartered in Chambersburg, PA. Burials stopped at the time the land was acquired by our government. Letterkenny Army Depot is responsible for upkeep of this cemetery and seven others on their land. Once a year, in May, The Depot provides a bus driven tour of all the cemeteries. This is the only time people are allowed to visit. Check local newspapers for announcements of the date, time and other information.

I am very, very sorry I neglected to post this information on the cemetery page. I feel awful that you have been hunting for this and now will have to wait a year before getting access. Please, please forgive me! I wish there was more I could do to rectify this error.

Several years ago, I posted on an ancestry.com board a request for information regarding who was buried in the cemeteries located on The Depot. I knew my mother's grandparents were there but wondered who else was. A kind lady who had just taken the bus tour, sent me a list that had been given to people on the tour. I joyfully found several of my ancestors.

Two years ago I was on vacation in Colorado and decided I now had the time to give something back to findagrave. I located a cemetery close to me and started to take pictures. A lot of the graves were not in findagrave and it made me feel good that I was helping others find their ancestors by setting up these new memorials. Before this, I had only set up memorials for my own ancestors. When I returned home, I remembered the list of the graves on the Depot land and was surprised no one had entered this information into findagrave. The cemeteries were not even listed.

I have several picture requests in for my ancestors in these cemeteries, but only one picture was taken last month and that was because it was next to the grave of an ancestor of someone on the tour.

I would love to live closer and be able to take the tour myself, but I have to be satisfied with what I am able to do. At least you now know you have ancestors there. Again, I am so very sorry for my mistake.

Thank you for everything you are doing to bring information to others via findagrave!

Hi Dave,

When I set up this cemetery, I forgot to finish the setup and put in the location. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I didn't put in a picture request for George Beaver; are you related to him?

Simons
Hi Dave- I found John Simons for you. Also there are others on either side of him, all the Simons you have memorials for. There is also one for daughter of John & Lydia Simon, it's hard to read. I will post the photo's of the others to their memorials if you'd like.

RE: Elizabeth Brown Findlay Johnston
Here's what I have on Elizabeth in my RootsWeb file:
http://worldconnect.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=nancygibsonlowe&id=I24199

As you can see, I don't know for sure where's she's buried nor do I know where her first husband, Samuel Findlay, is buried. Since he died in Philadelphia, he's probably buried there too. Since Elizabeth was married to James Johnston for over 70 years, she's probably buried with James who was buried in the family cemetery then later was reinterred in Cedar Hill Cemetery, Greencastle, Franklin Co., PA.

Summit Cemetery Goyts
Hi,
I was photographing in Summit Cemetery, and found the headstone for Mary Frances Goit. She shares a stone with Ernie Goyt. I made a memorial for Ernie 60039848, but didn't know if you have more info for him. I didn't find a death record for Ernie.
Happy to transfer or add info if you like.

RE: Amberson Union Cemetery
Dave:

It is right in the village of Amberson, which is in the Amberson valley, Franklin County, I believe in Fannett township. If you Google Amberson, you will find it with Google maps. Amberson is small enough that you can't miss the cemetery once you find the town.

RE: Allen Brown
Hi Dave,
I have added what I could to his memorial
page. Find-A-Grave did not have the county
in Ireland listed, so I could not add it.
I am transferring his page to you. He is
in your direct line and he is not of my
kinfolks.

RE: Samuel L
Hi,
Is that the Upper Path Valley Cemetery beside (across the road from) the Presbyterian Church in Spring Run? My husband & I were there in 06 and took many pictures. I did not get a picture of Mary "Edith" Coons grave marker though. She died in 1900 and was buried there. Are you going to update your entries with the "find a grave" numbers of parents so that it is easier to connect families? I am in process of putting some of my pictures on the memorials that I have created. Thank you for sending the information about Mary's parents.
