Bio and Links
My roots are in Northwestern Pennsylvania, but I now reside in Ohio. I get back to Pa. when I can because I miss the area and to look for grave sites and family information/records. I've been working on the Genealogy of my family for many years now and will try to be as accurate as I can on this web-site. If you have someone who needs linked, let me know and I welcome any information anyone may have, just leave me a message. Where possible I will have photos and or a short bio of the person as well as links to known family members. The family names I am most interested in are, Struchen, Whitford, Weidler, Baer (Bear), Camp, Platz, Gates, And Kreider. My Mother's family has been in the Erie County area since the beginning and My Dad's family came here in the mid 1800's.

Alice A. Gates - Beaver Center Cemetery
I have taken the photo for Alice A. Gates - although I doubt it will help you much as the stone is VERY worn and difficult to read any dates at all. I've put the full-sized image on the memorial, but I can barely read it.

re Goodenow
Hi Brian!

Hope you do not mind that I have transferred them all to you.

I can not say why his second wife is also in the same cemetery while her second husband was buried elsewhere. However, I have noticed that all three wives are buried in that cemetery. Perhaps he purchased burial plots before he was divorced?

Happy hunting and have a great day.

Kind regards,

Walter Gates
Hi! The date I have posted is what appears on his death certificate (which I have added to his memorial). Headstone dates, even on more recent burials, have a shockingly frequent habit of being slightly incorrect. If you have a birth record for him, I would be more than happy to change the birth year.

Tarbel Gates
Hello, I have added Tarbel Gates father to his memorial and since you are family I would be happy to transfer this to you if you would like. It was given to be by Barb who had done some photo's while she was in the area and offered them to me since I seemed to her to know something of the history there. I do and have been able to add a little to some of the story's here. I think that the birthdate was alredy there or I might have taken it from the new family search that is now read only. It has become FamilySearchFamilyTree I will put in a link to what I found and also to some things that will show records and give better information. I am going to transfer this to you. Kay Stephens

Hello Brian,
I am trying to find any information I can about Ada Case Swanson. She is the oldest child of Adelade Pratt Buchner, who died around 1881/82 in Erie county PA.In 1880 they lived in Northeast, Pa. Besides Ada she had 3 other children. One being my grandmother Mary Buchner. If I could find a relative of George W. Swanson I might discover the circumstances of Adelade's death and where she died.

I appreciate any info you may be able to provide.
I Live in Washington State and cannot travel to PA or NY to do research.
