Bio and Links
Bio Photo Lately I've been a little obsessed with adding names to the Washburn Street Cemetery in Scranton, Pennsylvania. I've found several ancestors buried there and then I read about the cemetery, I just couldn't help but want to add to it.
(I'm adding this info based on both Death Certificates and obituaries.)

PS - I sort of hate the fact that Davis and Davies are so interchangeable! It's annoying.

I live in Colorado and I'm very interested in family history. The whole reason I joined here was to find my ancestors. I love going to cemeteries and taking pictures. Many of my contributions are based off the photographs I take at these cemeteries.

Sometimes I have trouble reading the dates in the pictures - if you can help me you can click the Edit tab at the top and send me a message. I want to get it right! I like linking family members and adding any info you may have for me. :D

I'm more than happy to transfer memorials to family members!

The one nearest and dearest to my heart, my daddy, was the reason I joined. You can always stop by and leave flowers. <3

I helped Beth in Colorado to add all the folks in Lakeside Cemetery in Canon City. It took months, wasn't easy, but it was worth it!

My main interest names are:

A note about my photos - any headstone photos that I took, you have my permission to use on Ancestry or even your own family history pages, all I ask is that you note that I(Courtney Birkes) took the photo. Thank you :)

LAMPMANS in Arkona Cemetery
To help locate these, you may wish to add that the three you are requesting photos for are found in the area shown as MAP I, Range 10 and 11, Lot 5 (as you indicated). This is the oldest section of the cemetery, many of the gravestones are badly worn and difficult if not impossible to read and many, many gravestones are missing. I will be in Arkona later this week, if the weather improves and will endeavor to locate and photograph the LAMPMAN gravestones you indicated.

Arkona Cemetery Index shows she died June 26, 1898, age 70 years. This date differs from the one you posted on the memorial.

Thank you so much for the clarification. I will edit his birth year.

Pvt Edison Harris
The parents you sent this man have another son, William Harris. The problem is that Edison and William are born 3 months apart. Not sure you have the correct parents for Edison.

Thank you
