Bio Photo Researching QUINN, BUSCH/BUSH, HINES, JOHNSON, MIEDEL, MOORE-QUINN, CLARKE, ROONEY, STAHOVEC, RICCI- RICH, PAGNOTTA, RAIMONDO, MAGGIORE, VITALE, MANTEGNA, PAGLIARICCI, D'EUGENIO, FIORI, PARELLA - PERELLA, RAMACCIATO, SZURGENT/SHUGAR, and partners involved in the family business: "Hines, Quinn, & Johnson, Dealers of Coal" a.k.a: "The Latrobe-Cresson Coal Co."


PA Death Certificates are readily accessible at Ancestry, simply type in PA Dept. of Health File # while utilizing card catalog search. Similarly, refrain from posting documents presently digitized elsewhere. (These images may be posted on your family trees and seem redundant here). On each find a grave memorial, a limited number of photo spaces are available without paid sponsorship.

Primarily, I'm documenting graves of relatives. Some are not relatives (see below).

Please give credit where credit is due. If you use information gleaned from me and post it on ancestry(or elsewhere) such as: one of the headstone photos I've personally taken, newspaper clippings, historic photographs that I've dug up in the course of research, etc., please give proper credit to: Find A Grave Contributor(#48448647): Latrobe QUINN Genealogy -L.Rich.

If you click on the images supplied by me, source credit is given. Those which are courtesy of a historical society, library, etc. are credited. If someone else posts an image on a find a grave memorial I've created, please give proper credit to that contributor.

Mostly, I'm documenting headstones of family ancestors. Sometimes in cemetery travels, I've been known to document headstones which for one reason or another caught my attention. (ie: coal miners, Italian language headstones, and others).

Although I carefully consult multiple sources and intend to thoughtfully post accurate information, I am human and might make an error. If so, please let me know so corrections will be made.

If on the same page of a non-digitized microfilm newspaper I'm reviewing, if I find credible documentation of the grave for someone unrelated to me, I may also document those to further help you locate graves of your ancestors.

For example: While seeking marriage records of some of my Italian Abruzzi ancestors, I was reading page by page on microfilm, Italian Allegati -- Atti di Matrimoni & Morti for Castel Castagna, Teramo, Abruzzo, Italia. I came upon an unusual Atto di Morte of a 5 year old child who died aboard SS Virginia; presumably, she was buried at sea.

Besides an Italian birth certificate possibly at Archivio di Teramo and church records, this is likely the sole document avilable outside of Italy showing the existence and death of Lucrezia SPADDACINI. Although she is unrelated to me, and since no Find A Grave memorial existed previously, I created one so Lucrezia may be remembered.

Since her Atto di Morte is presently un-indexed, not easily database searched, and may not be rapidly accessed by someone unfamiliar with Italian, I included an image. If you'd like to visit this child's memorial to place flowers, please see(#144104899): Lucrezia Spadaccini

Sometimes in the course of research while ruling in/out whether particular QUINNs, HINES, ROONEYs, MOOREs, RICH, etc. are related, I may post memorials for unrelated individuals with same surnames. It is intended as a courtesy in hopes of helping that individual's descendants find their ancestor's graves.

Thanks to all our volunteer find a grave contributors and users for their time and efforts!

RE: Thanks for the Quinn Photos
It was no problem at all. The find a grave phone app also tags each grave marker with GPS coordinates so those should be in there as well. Sometimes it's interesting to see where in the cemetery they are buried. And thank you for all that you've contributed to find a grave as well.

Abraham Leisure or Leasure
Thank you for your time and troubles. The Leisure name has been written as Leasure in some instances which has caused a lot of confusion in my research. I appreciate the information you provided.

response to recent message
Thank you for your response. Joseph and Gertrude had 10 children - five girls lived into adulthood, one
son lived (he became my grandfather) and four sons died in childhood. So, that would account for the
four smaller stones. Thank you again. I was excited to find the picture of the markers. I didn't know
when either Joseph or Gertrude died, so that provided needed information for my family tree. Kathy

other family markers?
I just looked at the web site and found the cemetery markers for Alice Gertrude Miller - 1852 to 1911
Joseph A. Miller - 1914
St. Mary's Cemetery, Latrobe, PA
There are four small markers next to the theirs. Can anyone tell me what is on those stones? Are they members of the family? Children?

Thank you so very much for uploading the picture of my great-grandparents grave. My family was born in Latrobe (generations) as was I, but I have moved away and my grandparents have passed on. Having this picture means the world to me, as their daughter Ann was my grandmother. Thank you again.

Kells at Unity Cemetery
Thanks much for the photos; you've been busy!

I have created a memorial for Rachel Kells (#146676893) per your suggestion, so if you'd like to post the same photo (from George Kells), it's ready.
