Bio and Links
Bio Photo My hobby is genealogy, gardening and just being outdoors and scrapbooking.
I have three sons, two step-daughters, three step-grandsons, 1 step-granddaughter, and a special little "granddaughter" puppy that we love like crazy. Recently we became "Great-grandparents" to a wonderful little girl, Emma.

I was born in PA but I now live in OHIO. My husband's father's family are part Sicilian & part Swedish/my husband's mother's family came from Wisconsin with mostly a German background but also English and Irish too.

I don't have enough time to devote to my research since going back to work full time but I try to add to my tree and work on other's family trees whenever possible.

Some of my family are from:
Ireland, Germany, to West Virginia & PA.

John Fife Sr. in the Bethel Cemetery
Dear Ms. Taylor-Lanza

Since, it is obvious to almost anyone that John Fife Sr. couldn't be the subject in the picture. There were no photographs available in his day, you know.

I have given great thought to this matter failing to understand why it matters to you. In my branch of his family, we love children. I just can't believe an ancestor being upset to share his space with a descendant. I certainly wouldn't.

I do thank you for your polite request though. While I have you, did you ever straighten out the differences in places of birth between our sites? I look forward to your reply and please have a nice day.

RE: Reese Thompson
Glad to help. Just paying forward as it was a volunteer who found my great grandfather in a cemetery in Hicksville, OH that got me in to photoing. Great grandpa had been "lost" to our family for over 106 years.

Updates for several relatives

I was wondering if you could update the listings of my Gr-Gr-Grandparents on Find-a-grave. The updates needed are as follows:

William James Fife #1059111, please add a link to his parents John #10594007 and Mary Adams Fife #10594034. Also link to his William James' wife Mary Caldwell Fife #10594124 (married in 1867).

Mary C. Caldwell Fife #10594124, please link to her parents William Caldwell #37526863 and Rebecca McMillan Caldwell # 37527062.

Thank you,

Scott Fife

Thank you for the transfers of the Fife's in Bethel Cemetery. That is greatly appreciated. Remember in the future if you would like to transfer any additional Fife's or relatives of Fife's, I would be glad to manage them for you.

Thank you very much again.

Bethel Cemetery Transfers

I have a request of some Bethel Cemetery listings that I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer to me since they are my direct relatives. I looked at your listing and saw how you are also related to the Fife family, but through a little different line than I am until you get way back in time.

The following are listed as being under your management on Find-a-grave and are my direct relatives: Frank Fife #10594152 and Caroline E. Fife #10594195 (my GR- Grandparents), then John Fife #10594007 and Mary P. Fife #10594034 (My GR-GR-GR Grandparents), then William Fife #10594650 and Elizabeth M. Fife #10594674 (My GR-GR-GR-GR Grandparents), then William Fife #10593960 and Margaret Fife #10593758 (My GR-GR-GR-GR-GR Grandparents) and finally William Fife # 10591197 (My 6th GR Grandfather).

Since these are my direct relatives, I am asking if you would be willing to transfer them to me and I will update each of the listings with a lot of additional information that needs to be added. One is listed under the wrong name (Frank) and I would like to tie up all of the loose ends in the family line.

Thank you for considering the above request and taking the time to read my message. Please let me know whether you would be willing to do this and if not, can I know why?

RE: Davey & Bartholomew in Girard Cemetery, Ohio
Thank you, Carol. I look forward to learning what you discover. I have some of the trail of these Davey's, so if you would like to look at my tree on, and you have access, I'll send you a link. If you don't have access, I'll send you an "invitation". Sharon

Carol, Ray Thomas Taylor Find A Grave Memorial# 10183349 in Franklin Cemetery, Washington Co., Pennsylvania. This is a very old Quaker Cemetery. Ray is not found there. There are 4 Franklin Cemeterys in WV, one in Brooke Co. You may want to relocate the memorial in Franklin Cemetery in WV.

Would you consider transferring - I'm a member of the DAR in Bethel Park, PA. Chapter is named for Mr. Fife I believe.
