Bio and Links
Bio Photo Lately I've been a little obsessed with adding names to the Washburn Street Cemetery in Scranton, Pennsylvania. I've found several ancestors buried there and then I read about the cemetery, I just couldn't help but want to add to it.
(I'm adding this info based on both Death Certificates and obituaries.)

PS - I sort of hate the fact that Davis and Davies are so interchangeable! It's annoying.

I live in Colorado and I'm very interested in family history. The whole reason I joined here was to find my ancestors. I love going to cemeteries and taking pictures. Many of my contributions are based off the photographs I take at these cemeteries.

Sometimes I have trouble reading the dates in the pictures - if you can help me you can click the Edit tab at the top and send me a message. I want to get it right! I like linking family members and adding any info you may have for me. :D

I'm more than happy to transfer memorials to family members!

The one nearest and dearest to my heart, my daddy, was the reason I joined. You can always stop by and leave flowers. <3

I helped Beth in Colorado to add all the folks in Lakeside Cemetery in Canon City. It took months, wasn't easy, but it was worth it!

My main interest names are:
Clemmons
Whisler
White
Birkes
Shaffer
Wharton
Akers
Powers

A note about my photos - any headstone photos that I took, you have my permission to use on Ancestry or even your own family history pages, all I ask is that you note that I(Courtney Birkes) took the photo. Thank you :)

RE: relatives
I will be going at the end of May. I will upload them asap after I take them.

Any first names to go with the surnames?

Have you gotten all the photos you want from the Scranton area. I will be spending a couple days there in May and I know I am going to those graveyards along with others. If you give me last names I will keep a look out for any stone with the last names you would like me to keep an eye out for.

I live on the east coast and go to Washburn Cemetery and many more on our way to Binghamton, NY every Memorial Day. There are a lot of missing stones. I also go to Abbington Hills Cemetery, Dunnmore Cemetery, Shady Grove Cemetery, and am adding a new one this year. I haven't decided which one.

If I can be of help just let me know.
