Bio and Links
Bio Photo Still living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where most of my ancestors have lived. My passion for genealogy drives me to help others find their roots. Please feel free to contact me whether family or genealogy searcher.
In 2007 when searching for Kocinski headstones, I decided to document old cemeteries on the South Side of Pittsburgh. Below are the current list of cemeteries I have completely documented.
St. Adalbert's Cemetery on Brownsville Road, Pittsburgh, Carrick, Pennsylvania started May 2007 and finished November 2007.
--Maps of my 'descriptive' location within the cemetery is included as one of the photo on St Adalbert's Cemetery main page.
--Deaths after May 2007, may not be listed.
St Josephat's Cemetery on Glass Run Road, Pittsburgh (Baldwin), Pennsylvania started April 2009 and finished May 2009.
--Maps of my 'descriptive' location within the cemetery is included as one of the photo on St Josephat's Cemetery main page.
--Deaths after April 2009 may not be listed.
Loretto Cemetery on Devlin Street, Pittsburgh, South Side, Pennsylvania started in May 2009 and finished August 2009.

Story from contributor Phyllis Seaman-Eckert about her aunt who died at age 2 and burial location:
There are graves down over the hill at the 1st part of the circle. Apparently, many children were buried down there. In fact, we were always able to locate her grave because it was near a rather large above-ground structure for a Spanish or Mexican child.

--Maps of my 'descriptive' location within the cemetery is included as one of the photo on St Josephat's Cemetery main page.
--Deaths after August 2009 may not be listed.
St Peter's Cemetery on Arlington Avenue, Pittsburgh, Mt Oliver, Pennsylvania started in August 2009 and finished September 2009.

--Maps of my 'descriptive' location within the cemetery is included as one of the photo on St Peter's Cemetery main page.
--Deaths after September 2009 may not be listed.
St Michael's Cemetery on 18th Street, Pittsburgh, South Side Pennsylvania started in September 2009 and not finished

RE: Anna Bachert
Thanks so much - you're amazing! I've visiting the cemeteries where my relatives are buried few times, but I live in Mercer, PA, so I don't get there often, and hadn't seen these before.

I take photos and add them when I can, but don't get out often.

Again, thank you.

Find A Grave listing of Robert Roberts Matthews in Homewood Cemetery, Pittsburgh
Hi Roseanne,

Thank you for creating a post on Find A Grave for Robert Roberts Matthews, my brother-in-law’s 3rd great-grandfather and Civil War veteran who is buried in Pittsburgh’s Homewood Cemetery. I have a question about his middle name. Some city directories, and also his Civil War Pension papers list his middle initial as R., but I never knew what the R. stood for. What is your source of information for the middle name being Roberts? I would love to make note of it in my genealogy database.

Again, thank you so much for taking the time to put his post online.

Kind Regards,
~Leann Clark Carroll
Cary, NC

RE: Caroline Pflug
Thank you. You are right. I will add the photo to the Caroline's page that is listed and ask the owner to edit the burial location and dates that were different. My apologies. I wasn't trying to be presumptuous. I was just really excited to have found the stone. Thank you for your help.

Henry and Caroline Pflug
Hello, I just added a photo of the stone for Henry Pflug to your memorial page at North Sewickly Presbyterian Cemetery in Beaver County, PA. I noticed on your memorial for Henry that you have a Caroline listed as a wife who is buried at a different cemetery. If you see the photo I added for Henry, you will see that Caroline, his wife, is listed as buried with the same stone at him at at the same cemetery. I think there is an error in the Spouse you have listed on Henry's memorial since this Caroline is buried with him.
Hope this helps!

Unfortunately the attached obituary names a living person who does not want to be associated with the memorial. I appreciate your work as a genealogist, so I know you are sensitive to the living. If you prefer, you can transfer this to me, and I will take care of it. Thanks

Hi Roseanne, Sorry, I goofed. I put Memorials for my cousin Elizabeth & Pete Waddell. After I put them in & saw that you had already put them in so I deleted mine. I forgot to change Elizabeth Memorial # to connect her with Peter. Her number is #44795225. So sorry.

RE: Find A Grave Correction: Sarah McGibbeny
Yes, you are right. I should have noticed the sequence of #s not to mention the one with the more complete listing. I've now sent a note to the other poster. Kind regards, Beryl
