Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 have no connection to the Searle family. My philosophy is "No one should be forgotten."

RE: Farner, Ella
Memorial deleted. Since Ella is on the stone, could I suggest putting "Ella" as nickname for Margaret so another duplicate isn't posted sometime by someone else?
Happy New Year!

RE: Hutson, Brace B.

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.

Thanks, John

Cresaptown Methodist Church

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.

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.

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.
