I love "FindAGrave"! It's a wonderful concept. I will be adding more of my family and, hopefully, of others from the cemeteries in this area.

RE: Margaret Haddock-#61750013
I use Google News Archives. It's bookmarked to here:

Pittsburgh Press:

Pittsburgh Post Gazette:

Google has a search engine, but it doesn't work for the special print in death notices. You have to pull up the issue by date and scroll through it. Unfortunately, Google doesn't have all the issues online. The Post Gazette dates back to 1786, but they don't start till about 1927 in here. When the Press started around 1882, people seemed to still be loyal to the Post Gazette and most of the earlier death notices are found there. They are on microfilm at our main library.

There have been as many as four issues under one date, so when you see a gap, check the previous issue to see if it's there. I'm in there every day, looking for stuff, so if you have any problems, let me know.

By her birth year, she would have been 21 in 1875. Do you know if she was married in Pittsburgh? That's too early for the county records, but there is a limited amount of church records beginning in 1875. On microfilm at the main library. Anyways, the name is spelled Hueston.

Sidler's at Greendale Cem
Hi Kaye... I found your Sidlers but George who died in 1942 must be unmarked as there was no stone for him nor was his name on the large memorial stone. I only added a general photo of the family plot. I also added a Jonathan Sidler, that may be Jonathan George's father.

Fitzsimmons in St Mary's Cemetery
Hi Kaye,

I was photographing today and I found a few of the headstones you had on your photo request list. Eliza Fitzsimmons has another name on her headstone - Annie Fitzsimmons.

Also there are two headstones below the Fitzsimmons headstones with the name Weixel (Frank, J Raymond and Catherine). I ask because they are Identical headstones to the Fitzsimmons.

I have all the original pictures and a photo of the plot...I call it a family portrait.

I would be more than happy to email them to you and you may use them as you see fit. I am not fussy about copyrights.

Let me know.

Zim ~ aka Janet
