I enjoy family history and when I discovered Find a Grave I was quite thrilled. Unfortunately none of my relatives were posted. |
My mission was to get my relatives posted and while I was at it I posted the people around my relatives. I keep expanding the circle hoping the effort will help someone.
If you see your relative I would be happy to transfer management to you(except for my immediate family). Please don't assume that they are my family if they are linked to spouses or children. If I am sure they are related I link them.
I am not fussy about copyrights to my pictures posted on find a grave. Please feel free to copy them.

Hi Janet, Thank you so much for the photos! Yes, I would love all the photos. Believe Catherine Weixel may be John's sister. This really does sound like a family group. Annie and Sarah are their daughters. I'll put up the memorial for Annie and put out a request for photo so you can add it and get credit for it. I'll let you know when I put out the request. Will try to do it tonight.
Thank you so much for the "extra mile" you went!

Thank you so much for transferring little Clara Bell's memorial to my care. I have linked her to her parents and will update as I find information. Hopefully, I can get a photo of her headstone, if there is one. I'm finding that a lot of little ones don't have a marker. How sad. Wish I had the funds to get them for those in my family.

Thank you Janet, that would be wonderful to see the pictures!! These are the original Chess's in America for my line and there records have been very hard to find from that far back, so I really appreciate your help! BTW, Chess Street in Pittsburgh (near the Liberty Tunnel) is named after these Chess's.

Hi Zim (aka Janet :)).
Unfortunately I don't have a map on this. The M Jane Chess should be the mother of the William Chess with the big spire. I would assume that the other grave next to hers that you are having trouble reading would have been her husband William Chess (I believe he died about 1823). The others I requested (Finley, Eleanor, and Mary (and her husband Thomas Cooper) are siblings. I noticed that the death date for almost all of them is listed in Find a grave as 1854 or 1855 (other than William with the Spire). Like I mentioned above, I'm sure that at least William Chess Sr. died within a year of 1823. So I wonder if most of these grave were reinterred? By the way, the reason that William Jr. got the spire, is that he ended up being a wealthy coal mine owner (just as an FYI). The rest of the family did fine as well, but not like him.
I really appreciate your help with this!! Is there still snow on the ground in Pittsburgh?

Thank you for reporting the issue with the location of Sarah Jane Laughlin's grave site. Was there just no marker at that site? I have contacted the creator of the memorial to attempt to find whether the location is correct.
|Pezchild||RE: Alexander Birnie|
Thank you so much, it matches Adella's stone. I edited the inscription. I've been busy, whenever the snow melts, fulfilling headstone photo requests around the county. It's a great way to get acquainted with your surroundings. REB

I am not a descendant of the Hollidays but there is a distant connection to my family with Charles' great-grandparents William and Margaret (Gillespy) Holliday. No need to transfer Charles and Bertha unless you want to.
Did you get the request to link Charles to his parents?

Thank you got adding the photo of Tony's grave. He was my ex husband. I couldn't attend his funeral, and I didn't know where he was buried. I now live closer to Pittsburgh, so I can visit his grave.
