Bio Photo LANCASTER RURAL CEMETERY (Erie Co., NY)
2012: I began photo-documenting and transcribing 31 rows of the oldest section known as "OG" (Old Grave). As of August 2016, I am nearly finished sans a few that are completely illegible, broken, or require clarification on name/date. Please refer to more info at the end if you have an interest in this cemetery.

LANCASTER RURAL CEMETERY (Erie Co., NY)
Section G Rows 1-15; in process of adding hundreds of names that have no stone (August 2016). The section first opened to burials in the mid 1890's and largely consists of; single graves, children, infants, and a Potter's Field. Currently working on rows 1-8. Burials with no stone will be noted as such; photo requests are not needed unless a plot/row picture is desired. It should be noted that many of these entries may contain spelling errors especially when no stone can be used as reference.

ALDEN EVERGREEN CEMETERY (Alden, Erie Co. NY) Sept. 2014: Transcribing and adding memorials; the oldest stones have now all been added. Nov. 2015; Ongoing for all remaining.

ALDEN TOWN CEMETERY (Alden, Erie Co, NY) Nov. 2015: I have completed a full and thorough transcribing of every stone; an abandoned cemetery with numerous unmarked graves. All stones identified except two - added as "unknown" with photos.

SAINT MARY'S CEMETERY (Lancaster, Erie Co., NY) Have limited data; just ask :)

Transcribing/Documenting Lancaster Rural (Erie Co., New York): James Clark's Journal ~ The cemetery has burials (known and unknown) dating back to 1807, but no official cemetery record was kept until 1870. James Clark kept a journal with various names and dates of death/interment and other random info. This diary was used to create a typed transcript of the burials as noted by James Clark. It is the typed copy I am in possession of. It is by no means complete, refers to most females as "the wife of so-n-so" rather than by their own first name, and has many, many nuances and oddities.

There is no plot information, and often skips entire years if not two or three at a time in the earliest of years. It is however, an invaluable tool to have given the alternative of nothing.

I cross reference names using census & probate records, published genealogies, historic newspapers, and just about anything available to me. It's definitely a work in progress which I enjoy photographing and spending most of my free time working on.

Cheers :)

Bieber plot Lancaster Rural Cemetery
Hi, Katherine. I first want to thank you for photographing the Bieber stones as I have been looking for them but never knew where they were buried. Under Louis P Bieber (1855-1942) you have "buried in the Bieber/Hornung plot". I am curious about the "Hornungs" as I found on a New York 1875 census that his wife, Catherine Staub Bieber, was living at home with her family, as a "widowed Kate Horning or Hornung". So I am wondering who her husband was (a Horning/Hornung who would've died between 1870-1875) since it seems these families are buried near each other. Thank you for any help.

RE: Mantell in St. Mary's Lancaster
Thank you Katherine. There are various spellings of the last name. Church burial records of Herman and Theresa show Mandell as last name yet the headstones say Mantell. Their children's baptism records list Mantel as last name. Mandel is the spelling used by some of their children including my great grandfather August, some went with Mandell. Are there any more headstones besides Minnie & Rose buried in that location?

Thanks

Flora Below
Greetings!

Thanks for taking the time to look for Flora...I read your profile on the work you've been doing.. a true labor of love of family histories...Let me know if you ever come across an Irving Jones (Flora's father)or siblings Bert or Lafe...last census showed them living on Harold Place in Depew in 1905...Alden town clerk had his wife's death info but I haven't been able to locate where they died or are buried.
Flora's other siblings are buried in St. Mary's and Marilla.

Guetlich family tree
Hello, Katherine. That sounds great. I only hope to get it back to family. I looked at the links on Find A Grave for the family, great work! The family tree has a different birth date for Anna than the one that is linked. Please send your mailing address to mgandrews@bellsouth.net so that I can mail you the tree. I will also invite you to my Ancestry tree that I started to research the family.

RE: More on Sandel
Hi Kathi, I am having a hard time reading this. I can see the Sandel name and the date looks like 1823 to me. The only child that I have for George born close to that year is Catharine who was married to George Leis. She was living in PA when her father died in 1865 according to his will. Did you check with the office at the cemetery? When I was there they had a list of the people who were buried there. I made a list of the Sandels but I can't find it now. I seem to remember there were some I couldn't idenify.
