Bio and Links
Bio Photo It's been brought to my attention that i have a number of duplicates. I am working on figuring out who needs to be deleted. This happens sometimes when i don't have enough information to realize that two people are in fact the same person. It also happens when the other memorial has incorrect spelling or other incorrect information. It happens, especially with variations of spelling and calculated dates.

If i send you a request to update a memorial, make a correction or connect the person to their family, it is because there is a source to prove it. It does not take much effort to verify this on your own. I don't include sources when making requests because you should be finding the sources to see for yourself anyway.

There are many places online to find Free and Real sources such as death certificates, baptismal records, marriage licenses, burial records, etc. I do not pay for services to find sources and i do not expect anyone else to either.

I do not expect sources to be sent to me to have changes made. I am more than happy to find the sources to prove or disprove any corrections. I am not here to collect memorials so the ones i have are usually connected to me somehow and i really appreciate keeping them accurate.

Remember that each and every memorials is a person and should be treated that way.

Be careful using find a grave for family history research. I have seen a lot of errors, especially in Shamokin Cemetery.

Someone posted my copyrighted photos! How can I get them removed or get them properly credited?

It is a violation of Find A Grave policy to post such photos. There is a link to this policy on every single content page at the Find A Grave website.

If i find that you have uploaded my photos, i will ask you to remove them. If i find that you have uploaded more than one i will again ask you to remove them. If you refuse, i will report you. Anyone that has any understanding of the amount of work involved in photographing entire cemeteries should have an idea as to why i find this so upsetting.

Wondering if you are connected to this family? She is my 3rd great grandmother.

She was married to Michael Smith. Daughters Barbary, Hester and Elizabeth. I descend from Barbary who married Peter O. Campbell.

Would love to chat if you are connected.

Thank You

Susanna Brouse

Find A Grave Memorial# 133802989

I'm trying to research Sarah, and I see the listing gives her parents - do you remember if that was from a cemetery record? I can't find a source for her parents.

If the Brouse Genealogy book is correct, she received money from her father's estate, in 1830. Which would be impossible, since this Adam did not die until 1839. (But I have not been able to locate the probate records, so I can't be sure that is accurate either!)

Further, the Commemorative biographical encyclopedia of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania does not list Sarah as one of Adam & Elizabeth's children. Again, this could be in error. Which is why I was hoping you might remember the source for this find a grave entry. :-)

"Adam Fertig, father of Elias Fertig, and his brother Peter, were drafted and served in the war of 1812. He died in November 1839, aged sixty-three years. His wife was born in 1800, and died aged eighty years. They had eight children, two of whom Jacob and a sister, died in infancy. Their other children were: Michael; Anna Maria, wife of Daniel Snyder; Samuel, Elias; Clarissa, wife of John Garman, and Solomon." - Commemorative biographical encyclopedia of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania: containing sketches of prominent and representative citizens, and many of the early Scotch-Irish and German settlers.

Reuben Bowersox
Carrie, I should point out that there is a grave marker for Reuben in Paxtonville Cemetery but his name and dates are also on a marker where his wife is buried in Mount Rock Cemetery in Lewistown. She died long after he did but I don't know if his remains were moved to Mount Rock or not.
