Bio and Links
Bio Photo Findagrave has a wonderful feature that allows memorial holders to update many requests at a time, but only if done via the Edit tab --- so please try that before leaving information on the profile page! This feature is a true blessing.


Please keep your requests via the "other" information option to a minimum, as the workload has become unsustainable.

Over zealous senders may find theirs deleted. Hope they switch to messages via flowers. Thank you.

Obits under copyright should be summarized and will not be posted, so please do not send them. In most cases, there is a 72-year or longer time period.

If you wish to download one of my tombstone pictures, you may do so for personal usage and should give proper credit. Under no circumstances should they be added to other sites (such as Ancestry) as if they are your own.

Photographs of individuals require PERMISSION, and if lifted from here without appropriate permission or credit are subject to licensing fees.

Please follow Findagrave guidelines to be within a few generations and a direct descendant. For older ones, please communicate the reason.

As the number of memorials I manage increases, I sometimes elect to transfer without being asked. If you received a transfer and do not wish to manage it, please transfer back.

Benjamin C. Trexler (#55513154)
Hi Mary,

Are you related to Benjamin C. Trexler, or did you add his grave by request? I'm going to add a number of Trexler graves in Riverside Cemetery to this site and am also looking for relatives on my mother's father's side.

Besides the siblings you have listed on her site she also had a brother Peter Christopher Hollis Lapp (1878-1960). He was my great grandfather. He was a dentist in Malvern, PA.

RE: Abner Sparks memorial # 159366453
Dear Mary,

You are very welcome. I was impressed by what was written about her. I could see that she worked very hard. I work hard, too, and I wonder if someone would ever notice that some day when I am gone? She has left a great legacy. God bless.

Josephine Piorkowski
On the memorial for Edward Piorkowski you have his spouse as Josephine Piorkowski she was not his wife she was his mother. His parents were John Piorkowski and Josephine Piorkowski nee Schultz. Edward was never married. His father John was on September 19,1898 and died July 17,1973. Edward's mother was born Nov 4,1898 in Passaic,New Jersey. Edward was only 20 years old at the time of his death. This my cousin's first cousin. Can you make the change on this since I am not able to do so.

Thank you,

Carol Protze

Thank you very much for transferring William Crassant's memorial to us and continuing the work your mother spent so much time on. It will help many future generations to connect with their ancestors.

RE: Abner Sparks memorial # 159366453
Just wanted to say that I found your mother's Find-A-Grave memorial page. I was very impressed! She did so much to help so many people. I posted some flowers and left a note. God bless.

RE: Abner Sparks memorial # 159366453
Thank you, Mary (are you also Mary, or was that your mother's name?)

I believe AngelTowes put a flower sticker on this memorial with a note that Abner was probably moved to Harleigh Cemetery. It seems that, according to the obituary posted on this memorial, he was originally interred in Evergreen Cemetery, where his brother, David H Sparks, is also buried. But, AngelTowes has a picture of Abner's monument at Harleigh Cemetery with his wife, Amelia Coley/Cooley. Their names are inscribed on the monument with the identical birth and death dates posted on your mother's memorial for him.

Thank you for the transfer. I will see what I can do.
