|Bio and Links|
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:
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 :)

Dear Courtney: May I receive responsibility for her page? I am her Great Grandaughter and the only remaining family. I would like to honor her with a small bio of her interesting life.

You are welcome to use any photos I have taken for your family research. If I have made any family memorials that you would like me to transfer, please let me know. Thank you and enjoy.

Thank you so much for the clarification. I will edit his birth year.
|goldenthreads||Pvt Edison Harris|
The parents you sent this man have another son, William Harris. The problem is that Edison and William are born 3 months apart. Not sure you have the correct parents for Edison.

Thanks so much for the transfer! It is very much appreciated. ...Kathye
|Brett Langston Rowland||RE: Baby Whisler|
I went back to get the picture of Carole Whisler but since my last trip they have gone through with lawn mowers and other equipment and I have not found the marker again. I will look through my pictures already taken and see if I have taken one already.
