Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am researching the different branches of my family tree. Maternal Rose, Kuhns, Drylie, Muse, & Silvis. Paternal any descendants or ancestors Of Christian & Charlotte King and Isaac/Isaiah and Emma Conover & John and Rebecca Wallace. I have traced some of these lines back to England, Germany, Scotland, Ireland as far back as 1410. I became a grave hunter when a family story led me on a search for the grave of a child who was born in 1884 and died in 1888 between census records, the church where he was baptized burned losing all records, there was not mandatory birth registration so there was no proof he ever existed. I have now been involved in a tombstone project photographing entire cemeteries in my area. My friend Franny and I have photographed 106 cemeteries in Allegheny, Fayette, Washington and Westmoreland Counties in Pennsylvania however getting them all uploaded to Find A Grave has proven to be a very long and slow process so if anyone out there is looking for someone who could be buried in this area please don't be afraid to ask it is possible one of us already has a photo. For anyone out there doing the same thing--- THANK YOU.

A LITTLE FYI; I TYPE MY OWN TRANSCRIPTS FROM PHOTOS MY FRIEND AND I HAVE TAKEN. I DO NOT USE PRE-EXISTING TRANSCRIPTS. I FIND THEM TO BE FULL OF ERRORS. CASE IN POINT SEVEN DOLORS IN YUKON HAS 500+ MEMORIALS THAT THE CHURCH SAYS ARE NOT BURIED THERE.

Darl,Dorothy,and Daryl Jr.Roberts
Kathi,Though I do not believe I am related to you,I was truly astonished to find the death certificates for the above mentioned family.Dorothy Williams Roberts was my aunt.I have heard from other family members how 5 of my relatives died in one accident in 1947.My dad(her brother)and mom were married one week before this happened.I noticed the name Charlotte written on the margin of the death certificates and wondered if she had some connection to the Williams family.If so,I would be very interested in knowing,as there are few relatives still alive who remember this accident.Thank you.Deborah Ondrish

Thanks Kathi for making that image possible and posting it for me so quick.

Thanks again.

Arthur B Sheets
Hi Kathi;

I have Arthur B Sheets in my tree. Memorial #86582520 on the gravestone it has Jr. on it. The Arthur Bliss Sheets in my tree father's name is Dana Cornelius Sheets and mother is Myrtle Lillian Newcomer. Now I am not sure this Arthur is the right one. Do you know if the parents are listed on the burial record? Any help you can give on this would be greatly appreciated.

thank you
