Well I was way off on that one! I deleted my memorial since you had one in the correct place. Thanks for bringing that to my attention. And thank you for all your great work here.

Dear Sir:
I very much appreciate your providing the information concerning the survivors meeting for the 11th Pennsylvania Calvary held in Philadelphia in 1902. Alonzo was my great-great uncle, a brother to my great-grandfather. Three brothers served in that unit, Alonzo R., George G., and Jacob P. Wright. Your information has been added to Alonzo's memorial.

Would it be possible to use your Tombstone Photo for both Christina and her husband Daniel Althaus on my family tree on I would be glad to give you credit for ownership of your gravestone photos.

I'm not certain if the Fetters family buried in Hope Cemetery, Columbiana County, Ohio, are relatives of yours. However, if they are, you might wish to know that I posted two pictures - one for William and a group shot of the graves.

Best regards,

Saw the pictures you posted to her memorial, I descend from this line. Do you have more information you could share on her family?
