|Bio and Links|
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 :)

First, thank you for taking pictures of my uncles grave markers. You also did this for my two aunts in that same cemetery in Lakeside Cemetery.
I would like to request the transfer of my uncles memorial to my care. Their memorial # is 114668871 Victor and Richard Gonzales share the same grave stone. My account # is 46915890.
Thank you so much for your consideration and help with the photos. I plan to make it out to this cemetery this summer.

He is buried in the same section as his mother Julia L Moore. I plan to purchase headstones for his mother, step-father and uncle. I need to know if he has one or not, to purchase one for him as well. He does have a brother in the same cemetery who does have a headstone. Thank You. I appreciate all the work you've done. I also would like to somehow get a copy of the plat plan for Lakeside Cemetery. If there is one could you please email me a copy at email@example.com?

Thanks for all your fine efforts, and especially your improving Jack's memorial by linking his mother. It is appreciated.
Spring is here, so I am out again taking photos. Please let me know if I make any memorials that are your family and you would like a transfer.
Thanks for your help with edits.

I am hoping that you will consider transferring Catherine Rees Lewis to me. She is my 2x great grandmother and I already did the memorial for her spouse (Jenkin). My membership #48361215 I appreciate your time.
|Beth||RE: David S Evans|
I know the Bynon/Beynon's were in Lackawanna county at least in 1885 when my husband's grandfather was born. Daniel Morgan Bynon son of William and Theodosia Evans Bynon.(David's daughter) Most of the history from Lackawanna County for the Bynons I haven't found yet. With the 1890 census gone and Daniel Morgan Bynon born in 1885 I couldn't find them. I think I even have family buried in Washburn Cemetery which is Thorne and Burnetts. I was there once many years ago.
Thank you so much for all your help. I really appreciate it.

|Beth||RE: David S Evans|
Thank you so much for your quick response. I know there are many different Evan's families. On my side there are at least 4 different ones. I saw David's death certificate and I also have his obituary. He was born in Penrdaran, Merthyr, South Wales. He was my husband's great great grandfather. His daughter Theodosia married William Bynon and they resided in Forty Fort. I wish they put the first name of the wife down but I know many times they didn't. His other daughter was Mrs. David Powell and Mrs David Thomas.Most likely his family were buried in the Washburn Cemetery. Any help would be appreciated.
Have a nice day,
