Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've entered burials in all the Union County Pennsylvania cemeteries as transcribed by Mrs. Martha Bartol between 1915 and 1924. Mrs. Bartol was historian for the Shikelimo Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution from 1912 to 1931 and as such conducted the earliest known effort to record all the inscriptions found in the Lewisburg Cemetery as well as all the early burials county wide. Many of the stones she recorded are no longer legible or are now missing so her transcription is an invaluable resource for the counties cemeteries. Keep in mind that some of the stones were already difficult to read when she recorded them, so there will be some errors. The entries will have a note that Mrs. Bartol was the source for the information. Sam Alcorn's transcription (available from the Union County Historical Society on CD) was used to complete the record for those people who were still living in 1924 but had already erected a stone in the Lewisburg cemetery.

I'm happy to transfer these memorials if I have no relation to them.

Happy to remove middle name Love. This memorial was transferred to me when the author gave me all the memorials in this cemetery. I'm working on 3-4 other projects so I haven't gotten to the English Lutheran Cemetery yet. Thank you for this correction.

Hi Forrest,

Thanks for the info. I figured it almost had to Mifflinburg that you were referring to. Thanks for the verification. Most of the Hoys in Mifflinburg are my memorials. :)

Again, I greatly appreciate the transfer. I knew she was had died in 1850 and that she was buried in Lewisburg, just didn't know what cemetery. Have been searching for her for quite a while.

Many Many Thanks,

Kathy

Good Morning Forrest,

Thank You for transferring Barbara Hoy to my care. I will take good care of her. I am happy to keep your note pertaining to Martha's list on her memorial. I tried to find Old Elias Union Church Cemetery in Mifflinburg, PA in the findagrave listings, but without success. Does it go by another name or could you please send me a link?
Am very interestd to see what Hoy's are buried there too.

Many Thanks,
Kathy

Well, don't worry. Unfortunately I removed the request and don't know who to contact to get actual cemetery info.
Unless you do?

Wow, that was quick! And yes, I'll leave the source information in place. I wish every contributor that used transcriptions to create memorials would give credit to the transcriptor and the date the transcriptions were made. Good job on your part. Thank you, Stephanie

RE: Chautauqua Co transfers
Forrest,

Don't feel that way at all and you may find I have more as many of the families in these two big Forestville cemeteries run together. I would rather transfer someone to maintain them as people do the same for me. So if you run into anymore don't be afraid to ask.

Also thanks it was much easier to transfer when you sent each request.

Regards,

Mark Peebles
