Bio Photo If anyone has anything to add to a memorial I've made PLEASE let me know and I will be glad to add the information! I Love to link their parents to each memorial or have their obituary to add.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'm interested about who my ancestors were and how they may have influenced who I am today. I am also researching my husbands ancestors and am learning as much as I can to pass on to our daughter. It's also fascinating to learn about the many different church backgrounds they all have had. Still searching in PA!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I found this through a friend:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
DEAR ANCESTOR,
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Walter Butler Palmer

You are very welcome. I am trying to connect family members, also. I checked the rootsweb site for this cemetery and those are the only Hyser's listed. I have no problem with the obit. Good luck.

RE: Samuel and Harriet Hyser
Thank you, and sorry about the wrong maiden name, I guess I got mixed up with all the names. I will change it. Thanks again!!

RE: Samuel and Harriet Hyser
Hi, okay I have matched all I could find, and then I saw where you had parents of Georgianna, and I found them, put in a bunch of edits, and also I found 2 children of theirs that were not entered, so I entered them plus one of the ones husbands, I can't remember, I have been at this for awhile. I was going to offer you the two children of jacob and Ellen Marie, if you want them, I just entered them, and it appears most all are at Mt. Carmel in PA. So if you could delete your Sam and his wife, they are matched, and if you would like the ones I entered of (Jacob and Ellen Marie Wintrode) I will be happy to transfer those to you. Just let me know, Thanks again!!

RE: Samuel and Harriet Hyser
Thank you for being so kind also, not many people will admit they make mistakes, I make alot of mistakes, yet I try to work with everyone in a kind and helpful way, being mean does nothing but cause more painful issues. Yes I will be more than happy to match them up, if I miss any, please let me know, and I just made copies, so I am trying to work off those, but feel free to hit on the edit, and let me know if I miss anyone. I love the few good friends I have, they are also good to me. I believe in karma, you get what you give. You do good things, they will come back around some how some day. God Bless You!! You have great Karma!!

RE: Samuel and Harriet Hyser
Hi, thank you for responding, and being so honest, we all make good ups, I thought maybe I was going nutty when I saw the other ones. May I take some of the information off your Samuel's memorial? you did a wonderful job of adding things. I would normally transfer, but again this is my best friends family, she paid for the sponsorships, I just did them for her. She is not as close, but again, when I saw them, in Mt. Carmel unattended for years, I told her about them, and she wanted them. Maybe down the road, she may change her mind, and then I will think of you first if she ever wants to transfer them, I promise. I can just make a copy of Samuel's on the printer, if that is okay with you, and then you can delete them. Thank you again, I appreciate your honesty. Their aren't many people as sweet as you, to be so kind and honest. Let me know if it okay to just copy Samuel's info off his memorial, as she lives out of town, and I am working on this for her. Thanks You again!!
