|Beth O'Brien||RE: Samuel Haines|
We had a "warmer" day on Saturday, so I got out to fight off cabin fever, even though there is still snow on the ground here. At least it has melt around many of the stones. Yesterday wasn't as nice, but, much warmer today (upper 50's) & slowly melting it all away. Only 10 more days to the official start of Spring!

My pleasure Joe. Unfortunately that cemetery is home to many of my ancestors from my father to my Great x3 grandfather. They rotate care takers frequently and they do not seem to care about the purpose of the place. The memorials only get in the way of mowing the grass. I went into the woods in the NW corner this week and photographed stones that were just thrown there to get them out of the way, many could have been repaired, some were on the request list. There are currently over 60 names requested in that cemetery, if lucky maybe 10 will be found. I photographed several hundred stones in that cemetery this week, many are worn and many in German. I am trying to decipher them and enhance them now to post them before they are gone forever.

John has been entered at Stone Valley and I transferred him to you.

During the process of trying to locate John Hollenbach #72782925 at Trinity UCC Dalmatia PA. I was able to locate him at Stone Valley Church cemetery. I will be adding him directly. Up until the early 1970's there were actually 4 Lutheran/Reformed churches in the area, Dalmatia, Malta, Stone Valley and Union in Pillow. They were actually 1 organization, 2 pastors, 1 Lutheran and the other Reformed. Each would do 2 services each Sunday at alternating churches. They have split and all are now UCC churches.

Thank You, Yes I will share what I have on him also, but for now Merry Christmas & have a wonderful New Year.!!!
PS I have another relative that deployed in September 1861 as a Corporal @ Newport,Pa & was in the 47th Infantry Company H. Finishing his service in the Civil War as a Sargent in 1865.
He is very interesting as he was brought up a Quaker & was disowned by his family because of their religion. Have you encountered this before?
Sincerely, Laurie # 47375347
|Larry McGrath||re: William Hampton|
Thank you for posting the gravestone information of William Hampton (1834-1917), Union Cemetery, Weatherly. I have yet to prove it, but I think he may very well be the husband of Mary A. West and father of May, Jenny, Lillie, Grace, Daisy and Blanche. He appears to have lived in Weatherly, Carbon Co., PA, most of his life.
I see there is a reference to his serving in Co. G of the 143rd PA Voluntary Infantry. I believe this is a mistake. That soldier was William W. Hampton from Lamar, Clinton Co., a hundred miles from Weatherly. Was there a Civil War marker on the grave?
