Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello I've been researching my family genealogy for the last 18 years. And in doing so, I've walked through many cemeteries. I love cemeteries, I always have, they're peaceful and full of history. During the day, they are rather park like. And at night they can be eerie. I especially like old cemeteries, and I like to take walks through them and read tombstones. If you find that you are searching any of the surnames, please feel free to contact me.

RE: Sarah Childs
Milestown M.E. Cemetery (now known as Oaklane). I am looking for gravestone for Sarah Ann Childs who died in 1837 either in Bristol, Phila Co, or Milestown, PA. Her father Joseph Childs may be buried there with her.
Thank you for looking for me. Please let me know if you find these graves. I have no idea of section or grave numbers.

RE: Milestown M.E. Cemetery
Hi Mary Beth...I don't know if you saw my last reply. I looked through the PGS article on Milestown Cemetery and found the listing of your 4x grandparents: Samuel Farris, 1800-1879, and "Maria, wife of Samuel, 1806-1873". I also noticed "Caroline D., wife of George Farris, born December 25, 1828 and died February 23, 1897". I'm not sure if Caroline is connected to the first two Farrises. You can reach me at rpike09@yahoo.com if you want more onfo. on my Milestown research.

RE: Milestown M.E. Cemetery
Hi Mary Beth,

I have at least 31 members of my family tree resting at Milestown...the Penn Gen Soc had an article listed in their magazine in 2001 that detailed the burials at Milestown but only identified 12 names on headstones of the 31 I/D'd do far. I believe my 3x great grandfather Thomas Lister was an early founder of that church and other members of his wife's (Rachel Buck)family helped to build that church. Thomas, Rachel, and 7 of their 10 children are buried there...the others I have identified are the families of Rachel's sisters, Sarah and Elizabeth Buck. I would be happy to give you (or anyone else interested) the details of my research on Milestown. You can reach me DIRECTLY at rpike09@yahoo.com. I welcome all inquiries related to family research as it is one of my passions. Thank you for your interest.

Milestown M.E. Cemetery
Hi, I recently saw your entry for Sarah B. Clayton who is buried at Milestown M/E Cemetery near Oak Lane. I have recently visited this cemetery and many of my relatives on the Buck and Lister side of my family are resting in this cemetery. I was wondering if you have any other direct information on the burials at this place or was the info. on Sarah B. Clayton only from the death records available. I have put together information on other burials at this cemetery but I would like more "eye witness" confirmation. Thanks for all you've done to help others searching for their relatives.
Sincerely,
Robert

RE: Giovanni Cutillo
I am not related. He is my son-in-law's direct ancestor. He is in my file so my grandchildren have both sides of their family tree in one place.

My son-in-law's aunt has done their genealogy and that's the source of my info. You could contact my son-in-law's mother at kjdp10@verizon.net and either she will have the info or can link you to the aunt who has done the research.

RE: Margaret Day Smires
gorgeous photo. thanks. I have no idea who Ernest Sigeti is. Heck, I didn't even know who Grandmom Smires was until the 80's when I was trying to piece all this together. I'll see if I an find any info and let you know.
