Would anyone be able to translate this headstone?|
I don't have a clue and would like to get this person posted. Thanking you in advance.
I enjoy family history and when I discovered Find a Grave I was quite thrilled. Unfortunately none of my relatives were posted.
My mission was to get my relatives posted and while I was at it I posted the people around my relatives. I keep expanding the circle hoping the effort will help someone.
If you see your relative I would be happy to transfer management to you(except for my immediate family). Please don't assume that they are my family if they are linked to spouses or children. If I am sure they are related I link them.
I am not fussy about copyrights to my pictures posted on find a grave. Please feel free to copy them.

I saw you photographed the headstone with the name JOHN BLACK & FAMILY, with no other information. I've been researching my family history and know that my great grand uncle JOHN J BLACK was buried in St Mary's Cemetery on 6 JUN 1880. It's possible that this is his grave.
Hey there. I accepted the edit. It may be in Oakland Singles section but I will check it out next week when I can look around more closely. Talk to you later. :)
Hi Janet! How are you? I accepted all the edits except this one. I can't remember how far down this marker was and I even took some landscape images but I can't tell where the "Duquesne" section begins/ends and where the "Oakland Singles" section begins/ends (according to the map). I took many others and now I might have to go back and figure them out as well. Hopefully, I'll be able to do this next week and then I'll let you know. I did see that photo you attached of the death certificate. I guess they didn't differentiate between Oakland and Oakland singles in those days. Very neat how you find this stuff. Thank you for posting that, too! Cheers! :)
Would you turn management of Elizabeth Gillespie(108438140) and Ananius Gillespie(108433434) to me. They are my great grand aunt and uncle.

Not sure. I haven't run down any of Eskel's census records yet. Based just on the birth date, it's possible that they were married at one time and she died young. My Eskel Anderson had a different wife when he died. I will keep this memorial in mind, and if she's the right person, I'll ask for a transfer from you. Thanks very much for checking!

Thank you, Zim. I wouldn't have put up my page if I'd been smart enough to notice yours first! Thank you in the name of all the people past, present and future that contributors like you help. (Uncle Lawrence was awesome!)

Hi there. Hope all is well with you.
The old plant, ah yes Del Monte. They deal in pet food now I believe and not much is produced there as far as I know. So sad.
Going through renovations? Oh dear. I know that can be a headache. I hope it goes smoothly for you and when ever you have time to copy the map is fine by me. I don't want to be any trouble at all.
Hope your enjoying this weather. I went out the other day when the weather was in the 70s, wow, such a difference than when it's hot n humid, lol. I actually wanted to stay out longer but couldn't. Talk you later.
|Albertico||RE: Voegtly Cemetery|
Thank you for the information on Voegtly Cemetery.
Makes sense for the unknown marker and very nice that they did that. Where is this "unknown" marker located?
I've seen lots of Voegtly's at Mt Royal. In various sections, too (Northland and Crescent). I found 4 more Voegtlys today in the Crescent section.
I will check out that link you provided.
Excavation :O and cemetery underneath a parking lot?! Eeek!
Where was the old Heinz Plant located? It's not the same one that stands now at the present location?
Always a pleasure. I like these topics. :)
|Albertico||RE: Re: Buch/Cooper|
I found some information on the internet that suggests that the Voegtly Cemetery from Troy Hill was moved to Mount Royal.
It says this, "Mount Royal originally was named Mount Greenwood Cemetery. The first burial at Mount Royal took place the day the cemetery opened, May 1, 1901. There have been approximately 28,000 burials during the past 100+ years. Mount Royal maintains the cemetery records and the grounds of the Voegtly Cemetery (Troy Hill). When Mount Royal opened, several families moved graves of their deceased loved ones from Voegtly to Mount Royal."
I thought this was interesting. The Voegtly markers are in the Northland section and Crescent 1, too I believe. Also, there's a huge, tall marker, too in the Northland part, you can't miss it, and to the sides and front of it are the Voegtly markers. That might be in Northland 4. The other Voegtly monument is in Northland 5, near the Sollbergers. The Voegtly markers are in a circle. The circle outline is made out of cement. It's neat but it's been a while since anybody pulled the grass away from the markers. I keep saying I want to do it but I'm waiting for the weather to cool a little. There are quite a few markers there lol.
I don't think there is a designated Voegtly section like the Oakland section, I kinda think they are spread out but seeing the Voegtly markers makes me think that maybe there are other markers that came from Voegtly are near or with the Voegtly markers.
I didn't know about the family being responsible for maintaining but it makes sense. If the family doesn't do their bit/part to maintain then I guess it's up to us volunteers to do what we can.
I also bought a little brush, soft bristles, too. It's quite handy and does the job well. I've been tempted to bring cutting shears or something to cut down excess growth, debris, etc but wasn't sure if that was a good idea. There are a few markers, well quite a few that are under trees and I'd like to trim what I can away from the marker.
I messaged you from my email address. I hope you got it.
Always a pleasure.
