Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you contact me, please take a moment to say hello, good morning, or hey how are ya. On occasion I get "suggest a correction" notices that are brief, abrupt, and unfriendly in tone and seem more like robot communication than actual human beings. It's a personal pet peeve and I don't react well to those sorts of messages. A little simple human courtesy goes a long way with me.

I research my family history in southwestern and south central Pennsylvania for the most part, although I live in northeastern New Jersey. Counties of interest include Bedford, Blair, Franklin, Fulton, Somerset, Westmoreland, Cambria, Fayette, Washington, Indiana, and others.

PLEASE: If you request an interaction with me, whether to discuss a memorial or request a transfer, please do not be "Anonymous" and not provide any means to contact you. I recently had someone request a transfer but when I tried to contact the person, was told that the submitter was anonymous and there was no way to leave a public message for him or her. I'm not comfortable with this method of communicating. Thanks.

PLEASE: If you write to me via "Suggest a Correction" PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE provide me with evidence in the form of some kind of documentation for any edits you'd like me to make. This is especially true if I don't already know who you are. It's not possible for me to simply accept what someone out of the blue tells me is valid without sources, documentation, proof or some other compelling argument. Sorry to sound like a grouch, but that's just the way my work goes.

Kenneth Caldwell
William R. Caldwell
Hello Michael,
My Name is Kenneth Caldwell I found your grave site for William R. Caldwell. After reading your biography for William, I have a request for you. Will you please put William’s father, Samuel Caldwell’s grave site memorial #86549898, also his mother Elizabeth Donaldson’s grave site memorial #86553279 under family links. By doing this, he will be connected to his ancestors and lots of cousins.
My computer tells me that William R. Caldwell is my 2nd great uncle. Maybe you and I are related somewhere in the Caldwell Tree.
Are you related to Joseph Caldwell, MD? Joseph died Jun 9. 1811 and is buried in the Oak Ridge cemetery. I don’t have Joseph in my Caldwell genealogy files.
Michael where do you live? I live in central California, in the Sierra Mountains at the 4000ft level.
Bye for now,
Kenneth Caldwell Find A Grave ID #47745987.

Neterer gravestone
Just to let you know, the Goshen Public Library has a listing for West Goshen Cemetery. In that book it has the birth and death dates for Jeremiah & Amanda. I have put in an edit for both in Find a Grave.

Hello Michael, I just wanted to tell you that I am grateful for all the contributions you have made to help me and others locate and find more information on our mutual ancestors. Many of my family members were born/lived/died in Fulton, Bedford, Huntingdon, Blair, Cambria, and other nearby counties. I now live across the country in South Puget Sound WA so I am grateful for all the photos you've taken and all the effort you've made that can only be done "onsite"! If I can help from here just let me know. Thank you, Colleen Williams King

Photo requests
Hi. You have 2 new photo requests in for Oak Ridge Cemetery: Mercy Lindsay and Sarah Lynch. I marked each as a "problem". I had already noted that Sarah has no stone so I must have searched for that before as I walked and recorded that Block where she is buried. Mercy Lindsay is buried in the same plot as Sarah and Isaac Lindsay and that is the only stone in that plot. Mercy was removed from an old cemetery that was being destroyed and brought to Oak Ridge. Most of those stones didn't make it through the removal. At any rate, she also has no stone or I would have photographed it while getting the one for Sarah and Isaac. Sorry there isn't anything for you to look at but there are just so many unmarked graves and I know it is frustrating.....for me, too! Anything else I can do for you, let me know.

Grubbbs Family
Hi Michael:
What a great name by the way, I'm a Mike myself.

I'm glad to see you have done some work for some of the Grubbs Family. I am related to William M Grubbs and Mary Eva Uhlenburg. I am a Great Grandson of a Thomas Marshall Grubbs. I dont see him in the list of Children of William and Mary but I do have a Funeral Home notice that has surviving brothers and Sisters that match those names.

Also, I don't see him on any Census pages with the Family but the 1900 Census has him at a different family along with his brother Frank.

Are you related to the Grubbs Family and if you are do you have some insight you might share.

Thank you
