Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a high school math teacher and have been doing geneaology for over 25 years with extensive research on my extended family. I have traced some lines back to the early 1600's with almost all lines into the 1700's. My family is all from either the Pfalz in Germany or from the counties of Carmarthenshire, Glamorganshire, Breconshire and Monmouthshire in Wales. All of my lines settled in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The vast majority of my family is buried in Pittston Avenue Cemetery, Abington Hills Cemetery and Washburn Street Cemetery. Although many of my submissions are those of family members and family friends, many more are cemeteries that I have walked and recorded or graves near those which were photo requests. Sometimes I just walk cemeteries to record what is there. Even the best kept cemeteries have stones that are eroding and decaying. If we don't record this information that is there, it may disappear forever, as so many stones have.

I am not territorial. I post photos and information for everyone to share. I don't understand those who feel that they "own" information in a cemetery that is clearly there for to see. We all live in different places. How great it is to be able to share what is close to our homes with people from all over who can never visit a cemetery in person. Feel free to use any family photos for your personal use. It is not necessary to give me the credit. Just don't use them for profit. I abhor people who profit from the stolen work of others.

Although I welcome any corrections that you may find on my submissions and look forward to hearing from any family members or anyone else who is just plain interested, please do not contact me if you are not willing to leave your name. I don't deal with anonymous. I will happily transfer ownership of any page to any family members who politely ask, but please do not involve me in any family squabbles. I do this to help others and for fun. Let's keep it fun.

Great Grand fathers grave
Hi Tom,

After many years of searching I have finely found out that my Grandfather Bernard Malloy is buried in Cathedral Cemetery, Scranton, he died in 1938, I don't think he would have a gravestone, how would I go about finding the plot he is buried in as I intend visiting Scranton in October.

Thanks Jane from Bonny Scotland

This memorial/stone states that it belongs to Geo H Myers, but it is actually his wifes stone. Do you know who I need to talk to or how to find out if this is George H Myers? and the dates of his life?

Thank you

RE: Mabel Bickford Clark
My point was simply that Mabel Bickford Clark with the same date of birth and death are listed in two different cemeteries. Shane B has a picture of the gravestone but you do not. Could you possibly take a picture of the gravestone at Prospect Hill to confirm your posting.

Mabel is my sister-in-law's grandmother.

Mabel Bickford Clark
I see another Mabel Bickford Clark with identical data (106092299) at Eastside Cemetery in Afton, NY. Which one is accurate?

RE: Klos / Kloss
thanks Tom. I did see that KLOS sends one to KLOSS, but apparently my brother didn't see that. I tried to go to the cemetery yesterday as we were driving past, but it was closed. As the sign in the photo says, it is open only from Palm Sunday to (sometime in the fall that I don't recall). there is a tall fence and locked gate that keep all but the most nimble out. I will drive down (3+ hours from us) some day and take photos and add them to KLOSS and to the other ancestors who are there and don't have photos. I'll also try to fulfill the outstanding photo requests from others.

Margaret and Fritz are my GG grandparents, my GF was one of Sophia's sons.

Thank you for all the work you've done with find-a-grave!

Klos / Kloss
Hi Tom,
My brother Eric Olsen asked me to look up Margaret Danser Kloss at St Mary's cemetery in Scranton, hoping to find information about her parents. He submitted photo requests for Margaret Kloss and Franz Kloss. I see that you created pages for both of them including a list on each page of their children. You also created pages for Margaret KLOS and Franz KLOS with photos of their markers and a note that the name changed to KLOSS at some point. Is there a way to combine these better? Or maybe add the KLOS photos to the KLOSS entries?

Thanks,
Sally Olsen
