|Bio and Links|
I was born in Harrisburg, PA and lived on a farm nearby for eight years before my family moved to Tampa, Florida. We spent every summer visiting relatives in and near Harrisburg,and going to the Conrad Farner Family Reunion at Willow Mill Park near Carlisle. |
After a gap of 20 years I re-visited my home state and now enjoy going back as often as possible to Cumberland and Dauphin County areas. Maybe one day I'll get to move back.
I've only been doing genealogy research since 2005 and enjoy putting the puzzle pieces of my heritage together. Over the past year I've grown to love tromping around old cemeteries and photographing headstones.

I made your edit.
In the future please send updates by the edit tab on from the memorial you want updated.
It saves time. Trying to look up the memorial you want updated without the number is time consuming.

My mother wwent over and took some pictures of the Hutsons at the cemetery. She sent them to me and I uploaded them. Some were clearer shots than were alreaady posted online. SHe couldn't find Nicholas Avery. A lady at the church said some of the graves were moved to St. Ambrose and my Mother went there and didn't find him there either. St. Ambrose is a Catholic Cemetery so if he wasn't Catholic ......(?) I'm still looking for the graves of my family that they moved (Elizabeth Smith and Amanda Smith). I'm thinking they are buried in the "mass grave" on the north east side of the church. If they are there its a damn shame because they should have their own plot and their own stone. My family paid for their original plots and gravestones and the least the church could of done was to relocate them into a new plot and just move their stone with them. My family legend is that the worked busted up the stones and buried them underneath "Bell Street" as fill for the road. To me this is a crime. My great-great grandfather (Gideon Boyd Smith) could not be buried besides his wife because for one she is "missing" and two, they paved over the family plot that "he" paid for.
|Mark W. Parsons||RE: Cresaptown UMC graves|
Additionally, my mother lives right down the road. I'll have her go up to see if those two names can be located on any grave markers.
|Mark W. Parsons||RE: Cresaptown UMC graves|
No list of names anywhere that I'm aware of. There's not too many graves there. No list of who got moved. I was there two weeks ago and "dug up" a gravestone that was laying horizontal and covered by grass. It was down several inches but discovered a distant relative that waas in our family plot that was long supposed to have been one of those moved. He was located on the West side of the church next to Bell Street. That's the road they put in and moved the graves for. I contacted the pastor (website online) regarding hte graves. She knew no history of them and stated that no research or historical organization had done any research into the matter as far as she knew. I received additional infromation from a great Aunt and she stated that our family was contacted back then about moving the graves, but the family had no money to do it so the church did it themselves. I don't know if they then buried them in the "mass grave" on the north east side of the church or relocated them. I would guess the mass grave. I hope I helped.

You're very welcome for the reunion info. It'd be lovely if you can make it. Look for the tall woman with goldish/blondish hair and come say hi! I believe I had seen some of your records on Rootsweb or elsewhere, because your name rang a bell. It's such a lovely name, you should become a novelist or the like :-)
I see you have left a grave photo for a John A Romberger whose dates are similar (though not the same) as in the note you left me - b. Jul. 7, 1926, d. Apr. 24, 2003. Is this gent part of your clan? If so, I would be glad to transfer him to you. He was kindly transferred to me because of my Romberger interest in general. By all means let me know.

Hi there- I saw you have a Romberger memorial, so I wanted to touch base with you about the upcoming Romberger Reunion Saturday August 21 in Berrysburg, PA. It's a good time with fine fellowship, and terrific for folks interested in family history or genealogy. Maybe you know someone who'd be interested. Thanks for checking it out and passing on where appropriate. Since you come back to central PA in the summer, if you have a link, maybe you can pop by :-)
