Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired high school math teacher and have been doing geneaology for almost 30 years with extensive research on my extended family. I have traced some lines back to the early 1600's with almost all lines into the 1700's. My family is all from either the Pfalz in Germany or from the counties of Carmarthenshire, Glamorganshire, Breconshire and Monmouthshire in Wales, and Gloucestershire in England. All of my lines settled in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The vast majority of my family is buried in Pittston Avenue Cemetery, Abington Hills Cemetery and Washburn Street Cemetery. Although many of my submissions are those of family members and family friends, many more are cemeteries that I have walked and recorded or graves near those which were photo requests. Sometimes I just walk cemeteries to record what is there. Even the best kept cemeteries have stones that are eroding and decaying. If we don't record this information that is there, it may disappear forever, as so many stones have.

I am not territorial. I post photos and information for everyone to share. I don't understand those who feel that they "own" information in a cemetery that is clearly there for to see. We all live in different places. How great it is to be able to share what is close to our homes with people from all over who can never visit a cemetery in person. Feel free to use any family photos for your personal use. It is not necessary to give me the credit. Just don't use them for profit. I abhor people who profit from the stolen work of others.

Although I welcome any corrections that you may find on my submissions and look forward to hearing from any family members or anyone else who is just plain interested, please do not contact me if you are not willing to leave your name. I don't deal with anonymous or someone hiding behind another name. I will happily transfer ownership of any page to any family members who politely ask, but please do not involve me in any family squabbles. I do this to help others and for fun. Let's keep it fun. If you send me obituaries, please include the newspaper name, date, and page number. Without that information, I will not add the obituary.

Thomas Lewis Alexander M.D.
Thank you for adding Mary D. Cannon Alexander and her two children. at Dunmore cemetery in Scranton Penn. I have been looking for Thomas Lewis Alexander M.D. I hope that you might have information about his burial at this cemetery. I find it hard to believe that there is no record of his burial at this large cemetery. His family was from Chester County S.C. his mother was my great grandfather's sister. I would like to see a photo of his monument, if there is one. Thanks you for your help. Alfred Agee.

Find A Grave Memorial# 118965996 (George A & Almira Dodge)
Tom,

Just an FYI on these two from cemetery records I've come across.

There is only one plot listed with the Dodge name (last name only) but with a notation that the bodies were later removed. It is possible that the pair of them were buried in Stratford and then later moved to another location. I haven't found anything official about such a move. If you have resources available to you, and an interest in perusing this, it would be great to confirm or deny it and, if moved, set up memorials for them in their final resting place and link them to these two.

Mike

RE: Ann Thomas Find A Grave Memorial# 28340018
Tom,

I can understand that and I agree with you about checking first. When I've created dups and realized it, I've moved any new information to the original memorial and deleted what I'd entered.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Ann Thomas Find A Grave Memorial# 28340018
Tom,

The memorial you added above in 2008 has been duplicated by Jacqueline Conforti Barnett in November 2015. Her memorial has much more information as well as family pictures.

Since there are two memorials that duplicate, one should be removed. Yours has the lesser information. Would it be possible for you to delete yours in favor of hers? If not, could you get in touch with her to merge the memorials somehow?

Thanks,
Mike Bowman
