I started the Family Tree project in 2012. Someone should have warned me about how addictive this hobby is!...|

|Edwin Kelly||RE: cousins|
Well, Hello Kate--This is really quite amazing! Thanks so much for writing. I began checking back through family history only a few months ago and almost immediately found that someone had already done the work on our family on the Find a Grave site, tracing back to Caleb Hawks born in 1790 and going all the way forward to our grandparents Ruth and Edwin. From what I can see, your grandfather and I shared a birthday (December 11th), 51 years apart. I was born in 1951.
I'd love to hear more about your families' history coming forward from your Dad. My mother, Marjorie, is still living and will be 91 this year...those Wallace women were a long-lived group!
Best to you.
Hi, Kate. It was my pleasure to be able to help. Take care, Julie.

|Family Tree Climber||RE: Enola Cemetry|
If you are looking at the online listing under the church site for the interments, there are lots of errors on it. I believe a lot of the listings there, such as the ones in question, were actually lot holders or family members, quite a few have proven out to not be buried there. From what I see, it looks like family plots were often purchased and a name assigned to each grave - but often the children married or moved away and are not buried there. Some spouses remarried particularly when husband/wife died young, and are buried with second spouse (proven in several cases). There are also date errors on the listing - some default to Jan 1 of a year, some are actually dates of burial (proven by obits), a few have a prior married name for women showing as their maiden name.... My asking for photos was the last ditch effort of a possible burial there. I think it is better to have the memorials removed, and if someone can come up with an obituary or burial record, repost it. I've gone through the memorials on Find A Grave there about 6 months or so ago, and corrected a lot of them, and probably had a couple hundred deleted that were there in error, or were duplicates.
If you can find proof that those people were buried there, by all means please relist them - but I couldn't find anything.
If you happen to have access to the office and want to follow up, just be sure the actual burial record is checked, not a listing similar to the one online, or we will be back at square one, lol.
Thanks for your information and follow up. Good to see people interested in having accurate records!

Thank you for checking for my requests in the Enola cemetery - I do believe 2 of them may be erroneous listings from a source listing that I've found to have many errors, and I will have them deleted. I appreciate your time and your feedback!
