Bio Photo I will transfer any entry I've made to your care- I don't care what your relationship or reason. I'm not related to any of my entries except a very few. My effort is documentation and finding the lost among the stones.

It might be helpful to others to cite the source of requested updates; But even that omission won't stop the update.
How to Request a TRANSFER
*Note: You must be logged in for this procedure to work:

1. Click on the "EDIT TAB" top right of the entry


3. Type the word "TRANSFER"

4. Send.

That gives me ALL the information I need to make the transfer.
Living in Northern Chester County, Pennsylvania,
"I See Dead People."

I haunt cemeteries for tombstone photos and follow up with obituaries if available at the Chester County Historical Society. Or Vice-Versa, I get the obit then find tombstone.
Let me know where I can help in Chester County, Pennsylvania

What does the phrase "natural causes" mean in an obituary? The answer is that all causes of death belong to one of three categories: violent, accidental, and natural. Death by "natural causes" does not mean the person died of "old age," it means the person was not killed in an accident or an act of violence. When an infant dies of a congenital heart problem, that's natural causes.

Many obituaries or death reports will include a specific cause of death, such as heart attack, lung cancer, etc., but often, they only state "natural causes," or it can be adduced from phrases like "no indication of foul play," "died peacefully in his sleep," etc. The older the deceased is, there's more of a presumption of natural causes. For example, a note like "no indication of foul play" is more likely to be found in the death report of someone in her 20s than someone in her 90s.

Ruth Davis, Upper Octorara
Thank Dan, for adding the info and for creating a memorial for her daughter and linking. Much appreciated.

Ruth is the sister of LCDR Elva Bowers Davis, the WWII veteran who didn't have a flag holder. I never did find any info confirming her husband was also a veteran, but he's the one that had the flagholder (and still does...). I went and picked one up at the VFW for Elva :) She's finally recognized ~

Thanks again!

Great suggestion heeded
That was an excellent suggestion, about how I could present the links to Dorothy David's son-in-law's (my brother's) and her sister Josephine Hurst's memorials; that's something I've never, until now, known how to do, and definitely do prefer the way you suggested over how I had the note presented. Again, thanks for your invaluable and very welcome assistance. You're the best! :)

Dorothy R. Carlin David (1908-1960) obituary texts
Thanks so very much, Dan, for the two invaluable texts from The Daily Local News regarding Mrs. David! Thanks, also, for the codes that you added, that enable some content to appear in bold and/or italics (I've never known how to do that, but now that I've seen your examples will start, at least now and then). That's all wonderful stuff, and I sure do tremendously appreciate it, and your proactive and very welcome assistance! You're an AWESOME contributor! I added a nice credit paragraph about you being the contributor of those items, in the biography section of the memorial. Again, thank you VERY, very much! My sister-in-law will be thrilled when she sees her mom's memorial with the great new content from you added to it! :) Best regards, Dave Wilson (Seaford, DE)

Birmingham Friends South
Hello, I see you have added James Jefferis died 1854 in Birmingham Friends South. He died before 1874 and probably belongs in Birmingham Lafayette down the road. This Cemetery was established in 1874.

RE: Mary Ross, 10594257
Thanks Dan. I came across a transcription from when it was known as the Seceder Burying Ground, Presbyterian Church, Brandywine Manor. So it has some dates that the memorials don't have. I'm trying to check them.
Thanks again for your help!

Mary Ross, 10594257
Hi Dan,
Would you please add your headstone photo for Mary Ross, 10594257? Your photo is also on her mother's memorial, 10594256, Ruth Ross. They are on the same stone.
I have submitted edits to Gina so it will all make sense.
Thanks so much!

Belle's obit is there now. I told you Therese was one of the good guys!

It's great to have someone working with you that shares the same philosophy as yours. Good Luck.
