Why are you posting on the gravesite page of Mrs. Charlotte Watkins Llewellyn?
Can you tell me if you are related to Charlotte, who married William WATKINS? I didn't quite understand why you left flowers and a bio that had nothing to do with Charlotte. I think you are able to delete it if it was a mistake.
If you are related, I would love to hear from you about the WATKINS family that I am descended from.

Joseph Cooper
Hello Joanne,

I am the Great-Great Granddaughter of Joseph Cooper (1875-1950) who is buried in the Nanticoke Cemetery in PA.

I noticed that you "left flowers" for him and was wondering if you are related or knew the family?

His daughter, Nelly, was my Great-Grandmother.

Adam d Christman
Adam D. Christman is my Gr. gr. grandfather. His oldest daughter Barbara E. Christman married Robert J. Youngkin, They moved to Minnesota. Robert died in 1889. Barbara raised the kids. She became ill with Cancer and went back to Pa. where she died. Why her married name isn't on the marker I have no idea. Is anyone on this site related to these folks. Looking for more info on this line.

Please remove your memorial for my grandmother as I have created one for her at Union Hill where she is resting beside her first husband and some of her immediate family members.
May 2 2011 I had informed you that my grandmother IS NOT buried in Lehighton cemetery. You still have her posted incorrectly
Her correct number is 42034236.
She is not and never was buried with second husband Harry Highland. Harry is next to his first wife Trecia.
thank you.

I seen you posted the information on Elda Wanamaker who is buried at New Bethel Union Cemetery in Kempton. I was wondering if perhaps you were related to her.

Hi Jeanne, I came across Francis A. Koltosky (1918-1989)in a search of Find A Grove Memorial buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Allentown, Lehigh Co., PA, which you posted a memorial to. He is my uncle. His father is Andrew Koltosky,(1874-1953), Find A Grave Memorial #130489789, buried in St. Casimir Cemetery in St. Clair, Schuylkill County, PA.
Thank you very much for posting this information which I was looking for a long time, since everyone of the relations have passed away.
I am currently working and posting on the St. Casimir Cemetery of all my relations, who are buried there.
Thank you again,
Albert Koltosky
