Bio and Links
Bio Photo I like old cemeteries - I randomly take photos of graves of people I never heard of - often I take a photo of a veteran's grave just because they served - I put people's names and grave marker photos on Find-A-Grave for no reason other than everybody wants to be remembered. If you want any of my non-family member memorials transferred, please email me with info and I'll be happy to honor legitimate requests.

RE: McGarrell Cemetery
No problem. It does suck! I wonder if there are other stones underneath years of dead leaves.

Hi cuz. If I don't have a photo on a memorial its because I didn't take one. Probably got the location from the obit.

Vesta A. Waid, Waid Cemetery

You created a memorial for Vesta A Waid, buried in the Waid Cemetery in Clappville, Pa. Vesta's maiden name was Bloodgood, not Matthews. This from the 1885 History of Crawford County:

Mr. Waid was married February 17, 1843, to Miss Vesta A. Bloodgood, of Steuben Township, born in Oneida County, NY., October 1, 1820, daughter of James and Mary (Weal) Bloodgood, natives of New Jersey and Connecticut respectively, and of English descent. They were the parents of a large family which they reared in New York State, where Mr. Bloodgood followed the profession of music teacher, etc. Mrs. Waid came to this county at the age of sixteen, and here lived with her uncle and aunt, John and Harriet Matthews, until her marriage.

Unless you have another source, the name of Vesta's aunt and uncle may have confused you. I would appreciate it if you made the change.

I've been missing romping through the cemeteries and taking photos, too. I get the urge but the snow is too deep or, more likely, it is too cold! Thanks, Kathy

Thank you very much for the information on my g-grandmother's burial. No living person in our family has known where she was buried. You say it was in her funeral announcement. I'd love to see the text of that announcement. Do you know where I might find it? Again, my warmest thanks. - Tricia

RE: Mayme Wiltsie Shreve 1907-1948
Yes, it was complicated. As Carol added the same gravestone for 3 of the Shreves. I looked at my records and found

Frewsburg--The marriage of Miss J. Mayme Willsie and Floyd B. Shreve was quietly solemnized Nov. 15 by Rev. M. A. Myers at Baptist parsonage.[no year given]. They were attended by Mr. & Mrs. Charles Wigren, the latter being a sister of the bride. Mr. & Mrs. Shreve will reside at 10 Venman Ave.

I missed the J before when trying to connect Floyd to a wife. I did not post the original memorials and didn't catch the error. I wonder if Mayme L Wiltsie Shreve is really buried in NY.

Thanks for catching that as Floyd is my first cousin twice removed. I have changed my database to reflect the correct wife.

RE: Titus Cemetery
My source is "Gilsons on Gilson Ridge" by Maurien Struthers. She refers to Euguen Throop's "History of Titusville" ad "Titus Family" by Olivia Titus Moore. She also refers to information from Titus Cemetery records and History of Crawford Co., 1885, p 585. The location of the cemetery was behind the Hydetown Methodist Episcopal Church according to Maurine. I hope this proves helpful to you.
