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.)

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:
Clemmons
Whistler
White
Birkes
Shaffer
Wharton
Akers
Powers

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 :)

Just to let you know, I posted biographical info for my great-grandmother & the two of her daughters that are buried at Lakeside. Hopefully, I'm going to visit them on Nov 2nd

Thank you for the Lakeside Cemetery photos
Courtney,

Thank you so much for spending your time photographing the graves in the Lakeside Cemetery in Canon City. I live in DC currently, and could not make the trip anytime soon back to Colorado to add more photos onto my ancestry.com family tree. Us Moschetti, Merlino, and Varney descendants appreciate your help! I gave you the credit on the photos I used, of course :)

Thanks again,
Katie

RE: Howells in Starrucca Cemetery
I am going back to that area in a few weeks and will look for Noel Lloyd. Also will try to find his son Arnold's stone and get a photo for you.

Thank you
Hello Courtney,

Thank you for the recent family transfer. I forgot to ask you to transfer my other family member, memorial# 111812860. The sisters are buried together.

I appreciate your quick reply and appreciate your help on this website. Keep up the great work! I can't tell you how much I appreciate the photo of the headstone. It confirms the missing angel on the tombstone for the girls.

Best Regard,

CTV

Gudall graves in Lakeside
Dear Courtney, Thanks for your work in transcribing Lakeside in Canon City! If you would like to, transfer the Gudall graves to me since they are my parents and my grandmother. I appreciate all the hard work you've done to complete this task!
