Bio and Links
I'm a college student, working on my bachelors degree in Chemistry. When I'm not in class or at home studying, I try to work on local family genealogies.I update FindAGrave with the obituaries and funeral notices I find through Google's News Archives.I got married in the spring, and have a somewhat lighter schedule this semester, so I hope to do a bit more research and updating on the memorials I've created.

PLEASE feel free to use any of the photographs of the headstones that I've taken on this site. I volunteer my time in order to help others with their genealogy. It would be nice to be notified if one of the pictures is being used, but I don't need it.

NOTE also that the obituaries I post (especially ones taken from Google News Archive) may or may not accurately reflect the date that the obituary was published. Most of the news papers I've encountered for the Beaver Falls area are fairly accurate, but there are a few where several dates are clumped under one heading. I try to make notes with the pictures I upload, but some may get missed.

RE: William E Barrett
I gave you the wrong info for William Barrett. Can you delete the parents I gave you. I also think I gave you his middle name as Ellsworth. That is wrong also. So sorry for the mixup. Thanks Donna

Lloyds in Grove Cemetery
Hi. I have sent you some edits for several of the Lloyd family buried in Grove Cemetery, New Brighton. My GGGG grandparents were John and Elizabeth Woods Lloyd. I am researching the family and trying to link the members. Most of the information comes from death certificates and obituaries that I have found. Thank you for creating memorials for many of the Lloyds.

RE: Phyllis Roberta McNeel
No worries! I have been meaning to get in touch with them regarding Alice for about a year now, but between having three small kids and this past winter I haven't been successful at all. Is Phyllis' grave marked? Easy to find?

Also a small bit of trivia my mother is buried in the grandview cemetery in beaver falls and I believe you added her obit to her page :)

Phyllis Roberta McNeel
Hi there.

Thank you so much for adding Phyllis Roberta McNeal, she was my great aunt. By any chance have you come across the grave of her mother Alice?

Thank you for finding and posting her obit. She's not a direct relative, but still wanted to get a fuller picture of her earlier years before her second marriage. Thank you for your service! PS My son graduated recently with a degree in chemistry and has had good success with job hunts.
