|Bio and Links|
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.

Is Eva a relative to you? She is my 4th great aunt and I was wondering if you would transfer her memorial to me. Also, do you remember where you obtained her information? I am always trying to dig up new records and was hoping you might share.

|Maurice Hitt||RE: Lydia & George N. Haynes|
Thanks for your reply, I appreciate it. I live in Florida, but we try to go to NY every year. I love that part of the country so it will be a nice drive. If we go, I will forward any corrections to you.
|Maurice Hitt||Lydia & George N. Haynes|
Could you double check the death date of George N. Haynes and the listing of Lydia Haynes with NOTE: Wife of George N. Haynes, died 16 July 1866, 47 yrs.
George N. Haynes, died 1810 age 72 yrs.
He had no wife by the name Lydia (he married Sarah Mariah Mead and was living in 1898). George was living in 1880 but dead by 1892.
I would appreciate it if you could look at these two again. Both buried in the Mann Cem., Morris, Otsego Co., NY.
Thank you in advance from a fellow volunteer on FindaGrave.
Recent obit for you to update his info.
Roger Keene Strong of Farmington, Conn., died Tuesday, March 25, 2014, after a long illness. He was 89.
Roger was born March 2, 1925, in Syracuse, N.Y., to the late Harry M. and Frances D. Strong, and big brothers, Stanley and Harry Strong.
As a child of the Great Depression, Roger's childhood was defined by moves to various locations in New York and Michigan as required by his father's employment. The Strong family was living in Michigan when Roger graduated from high school and World War II was in full swing. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy and was still in pilot training when the war ended, so he went off to Michigan State University to complete a degree in Mechanical Engineering. While he was in college, his parents moved to Dalton, Pa., where Roger met and married in 1949 'the girl next door,' Jeannette Wehr. Roger and Jeannette moved to Doylestown, and had two daughters, Rebecca and Martha.
Roger was fortunate to work for Honeywell for 35 years designing and testing instruments. He took great pride in his work and his many technical accomplishments.
In his personal time, Roger was a longtime member of the Doylestown United Methodist Church, loved to vacation in the hills of the northeast, play Bridge, and visit with family in Dalton. He was a very accomplished handyman and spent much of his free time making renovations to the family house and yard. As he neared retirement, he and Jeanne bought a series of RVs and spent much time travelling the back roads of the U.S. In 1993, he and Jeannette took the bold move of selling the family home and moving to Branson, Mo., a favorite retirement and music community of the Midwest. There they spent almost 10 years with new friends and activities while continuing their travels even further to the west.
In 2003, he and Jeannette moved back east to Farmington, Conn., to be closer to their daughter, Martha.
In addition to his wife, Jeannette, He is survived by his daughters, Martha Strong of West Hartford, Conn., and Rebecca Allen with husband, Calvin, of Winchester, Va; two grandsons, Matthew Allen with wife, Alison Borek, of Mamaroneck, N.Y., and Drew Allen with wife, Jennifer, of Winchester, Va.; one great-granddaughter, Leila Allen; nephews, Gregory Strong and Doug Peck; and nieces, Gretchen Strong and Susan Livingston.
A private ceremony is planned at a later date followed by internment in Fairlawn Cemetery in Dalton, Pa.

According to my family records, Florence A Harrison married E L Santee and lived in Scranton. She was born in 1852 and died in 1925. (a sister of my GGF, T.B. Harrison, 1858-1936)
This all matches well with your Find A Grave post. But I do not understand the "Rood" part. What is the source of that?
