If your messages are disabled, I cannot communicate with you - that's a shame. If you leave me a message and I cannot reply, it gets deleted unread and with no action. I don't send edits on random memorials to communicate with contributors.

I won't collaborate with people who leave biographical information as virtual flowers. I will not make edits based on that. Tacky.

Please do not post obit scans, newspaper scans, DCs, screen shots, etc. to memorials I manage. They are reported and removed.

RE: William and Emma Konskey
I respectfully say, no thank you. After several mishaps, I finally had to make a rule for "myself" regarding giving my info to others to add. I realize these people are first cousins, and not closer relatives, but if it's my relative, I add the information. Thanks anyway, Irene

RE: Shelby Holder #105728162

Thank you for challenging my info. This was, I believe, based on information we received 10-15 years ago by another researcher though it could also from a document listing descendants of Solomon Holder that I obtained form the Mesa, AZ LDS Family History Center. I am not sure at this moment.

Doing a little more research following your message it appears that Shelby was born in Gilmer, TX not Grice. That is the info listed on his son, Shelby's, birth certificate.

There are a number of family trees posted on Ancestry stating his middle name is Herbert though I could not find that middle name elsewhere.

Finally I ran across this on the Ancestry web site:

Shelby Holder
in the Family Data Collection - Individual Records

Report issue
Name: Shelby Holder
Spouse: Nellie Thelma Thompson
Parents: Thomas Dolphus Holder, Sarah Hampton Henson
Birth Place: Upshur Co, Grice, TX
Birth Date: 17 Feb 1900
Marriage Place: Grice, Upshur Co, TX
Marriage Date: 24 Mar 1918
Death Place: Texarkana, Miller Co, AR
Death Date: 9 Mar 1967

My wife's maiden name is Holder. She and Shelby would be 2nd cousins, twice removed.

Mary Burkhart
I searched and photographed the entire section (about 100 graves) and couldn't come up with Mary. It appears the single digit sections are older with many worn and damaged markers and a lot of open space where there could be graves without stones.

Memorial# 135453344
This memorial is a duplicate of two other memorials: # 135453374 and # 135453354.

The names on the headstones are John V and Jane M Baulsir. The other two memorial have individual photos of the headstones and when you zoom in on the lettering you can read the names and dates very clearly.

Look at all the Baulsir in this cemetery and you will see duplicates.

RE: Christ Our Redeemer
It's my pleasure, that's one of my favorites and believe it or not, I was out there last night so I'll be posting some photos from Section 2 and I definitely want to get a closer look at the other single digit numbered sections. I also just found Pine Creek Allison Park, The Lithuanian Association on Bellevue Rd and St Nicholas Millvale. I come from Glenshaw so I found Pine Creek fascinating and can't wait to go back. I got your request and will most likely be out sometime tomorrow. Keep up the good work!
Good Hunting,

Mary Burkhart (#151544949)
I'm interested in your memorial for Mary Burkhart (#151544949). I am trying to find information on my 3rd great grandmother by that name who probably died in Allegheny City (Pittsburgh area) in 1886. Do you have any more information on the Mary Burkhart that is buried in Christ Our Redeemer Catholic Cemetery? Where did you get the information that there was a Mary Burkhart buried there? Thanks for any help you can give!

Bandone Family Members in Green-Wood Cemetery
Hi LostGeneration,

I'm currently interested in finding more about the Bandone Family Members: Celestina, Giacomo, and Josephine that are buried in Kings County (Brooklyn), NY. I'm currently in the process of researching my Italian Family tree and believe these 3 to be relatives of our family.
