Bio and Links
Bio Photo My car should have a bumper sticker that says: "Will brake for cemeteries". Caught the genealogy bug in 1981 and have never found a cure...not that I want to! When stumped by elusive ancestors, sometimes think it'd be easier to "dig 'em up and ask 'em". Finding living descendents of John PENTICO and Katherine JUNG/YOUNG of Burnside PA is an ongoing project, as are my grandchildren's WINDOW ancestors of Monmouthshire, Wales and Devonshire, England.

RE: Re Mathilda Olive (SUNDHOLM) Allstrom
Well, one step at a time. First Graceland, although some folks were cremated at Graceland and buried at Roseland. I have my fingesr crossed that she is in Graceland also. Bob Lerch

RE: Re Mathilda Olive (SUNDHOLM) Allstrom
I don't have access to cemetery records, but I am glad help where I can. I mostly take photos. Please email the cemetery at info@gracelandcemetery.org. Give Jan (John) Sundholm's name and death date (approximate if neccesary) and ask if he is there, where his burial location is and if it has a marker. They are very helpful though it may take a week or two. The name of the lot owner may also be of interest. Perhaps you should provide Christina's name as the possible owner/purchaser. I warn you he may be buried there, but many graves are not marked. There is a large number of Swedes represented in this cemetery. I think your chances a very good. Best Wishes, Bob Lerch

Hello

I am not in the area of Hanston cemetery but I have put in a picture request to see if Bruce has a stone there. You might call the cemetery office and ask about your "transfer of remains" request.
Good Luck

Luther Bartron 85344968
Hi Joanna,

I will edit his middle name and nickname to match the edit you sent, but I will not be changing his surname to Cupp Bartron. If you look at the Find A Grave naming conventions, if you want to concatenate a surname that way it has to either match the name on the marker or the person's legal surname. In this case it matches neither. The social security administration had his legal surname as Bartron, the cemetery website had Bartron, and his marker says Bartron. I will put a note in his bio section explaining the situation, but it is not appropriate in a case like this to change the surname to something that guarantees no one will ever be able to find the memorial again, which is what would happen if his surname is changed to Cupp Bartron.

RE: George and Rosa Martin
Glad to be of any help I can be. I didn't add their parents to their bio's because those hints where unconfirmed. When you are sure I will add the information for their parents even if we can't find a Find A Grave#. Are George and Rosa relatives? They are very distant relatives of my husbands. So if you would like to manage their memorials let me know. Susan

Try John New Martin and Louisa Anna Tolley Martin for George.

Thank you for the obits. Always like to add history when possible. Try Erastus Nelson Seeley 1822-1901 and Martha Jane Wilcox Seeley for Rosa's parents.

I have accepted this based on your argument but please be aware that census records are wrong all the time too. Some census workers rounded births off too--in this case 1859 rounded to 1860. I have seen it all the time. Since obit is dated 1926 I'm pretty sure that is correct. Lincoln Cemetery records are not the best in the world having over 500 sites in this cemetery and talking to retired sexton for years. Is there a tombstone for James Watson's father in Lincoln? I noticed you added him at Lincoln. Richard
