You have Paul's death date as 1986 but the Veterans Burial Card has 1989. You might want to check that out.
Thanks, Shirley

Why are you posting on the gravesite page of Mrs. Charlotte Watkins Llewellyn?
Can you tell me if you are related to Charlotte, who married William WATKINS? I didn't quite understand why you left flowers and a bio that had nothing to do with Charlotte. I think you are able to delete it if it was a mistake.
If you are related, I would love to hear from you about the WATKINS family that I am descended from.

Joseph Cooper
Hello Joanne,

I am the Great-Great Granddaughter of Joseph Cooper (1875-1950) who is buried in the Nanticoke Cemetery in PA.

I noticed that you "left flowers" for him and was wondering if you are related or knew the family?

His daughter, Nelly, was my Great-Grandmother.

Adam d Christman
Adam D. Christman is my Gr. gr. grandfather. His oldest daughter Barbara E. Christman married Robert J. Youngkin, They moved to Minnesota. Robert died in 1889. Barbara raised the kids. She became ill with Cancer and went back to Pa. where she died. Why her married name isn't on the marker I have no idea. Is anyone on this site related to these folks. Looking for more info on this line.
