Postings combine my own research and that shared with the GC archives. My family has been in Greene County, PA for over 200 years on all lines of my tree. My top priority is photographing and accurately transcribing local tombstones. As I am able, I am adding family links and details.

Abel & Catharine Mills
I have been contacting cousins to raise the money for a small plain granite marker for these two. I was surprised at how the sandstone marker has deteriorated since I took the picture. We hope to have the new marker in place next month. Catharine's old marker will be placed near the new one, but won't be legible for too many more years. I'll add a new picture when this is accomplished.

RE: Catharine (Ulery) Mills Photo
I descend from Catharine & Abel Mills' granddaughter, Isabelle Morris Atwood. After Catharine & Abel's daughter, Emaline Mills Morris, died they brought her 3 children to IL with them. How are you related? I am meeting with a monument representative tomorrow to discuss recycling a small granite marker I am replacing on my late husband's grave. I will have it redone with Abel Mills (dates). There has never been a marker for him. Cemetery records say he is beside Catharine at the Wenona Comm. Cemetery. Hope this is ok with you.

Frederick Harvey, Jacksonville
I had posted Fred to Fairview Cemetery in 2010, and only was recently corrected about his location. Shall I remove my posting from Jacksonville Cemetery? Would you want to copy his bio paragraph before I do remove my memorial?

Andrew Buchanan
Hello Candice, in regards to Congressman Andrew Buchanan's portrait when I wrote his bio back in 2002, I think I found his image in the collection of the Libary of Congress files which has portaits and photos of congress members. Best always,

G. Charles Ogline Lantay (aka Gregory P. Lantay)
Hi" Added Mary Jewell Harden's dc to your Find A Grave Memorial. I believed Mary E. Harden was the former Mary E, Lape that had married James Harden in Fayette County in 1898 but thie Mary Harden that died in 1907 isnot any relation to ouir family. Ya might care to update the memorial now that the dc is attached. PS: I like your Grrene County Connections. If you have any LAPE surnames let mwe know, ok?

RE: Cook family
Unfortunately, I am not related as far as I know. A lot of the people buried in the cemetery are related to me though, so I have a great interest in the West Finley Cemetery. The man who keeps the records for it has recently allowed me to take pictures of the internment records (which I'm extremely grateful for), and I am trying to work through them so that everyone buried there has a memorial. If you would like me to send you a copy of the page with Ivie's information, I would be happy to! -Chelsea
