Bio and Links
I've been researching my family roots since the fall of 1999. I started researching because of a Social Studies project given to my son when he was in 6th grade. It was a year long school project, the students were to trace their family lines back to the immigrant and present their results in a 3 ring binder. Well needless to say I was hooked helping my son write letters to family members asking for help and documents to verify the info. Helping him to get BMD certs for family members from all over. Going to visit the cemeteries here in Pennsylvania to get pics of gravestones for my husband's family lines. Unfortunately, my family lines are all out in Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Indiana, Ohio. I didn't find this site in time for his project, but I am hooked on genealogy & I am hooked here and feel as though I can't expect folks out in the Midwest to take pics for me if I don't take pics of gravestones here in my local area.

I have transcribed & taken pics for 3 small cemeteries in the area. I am working on taking the photos in a few other larger ones here in the Mechanicsburg area.

Researching my maternal line families in London, England; and additional villages of Westmill, Aspenden, Great Munden, Hertfordshire, England.

Researching my paternal line families in Beara Island, County Cork, Ireland; Tubber, Knocktoby, Gort, County Galway, Ireland.

I am related, this is my Mother, Father, brothers and sisters, and this information is helpful to relatives who have lost touch over the years, just as valuable before a person is dead as after.

RE: Carlisle Indian School burials
Sorry, should have cited: The Death Record section of the Register of Pupils for the Carlisle Indian School. Some of which is available at if you'd care to go through it for more detail as well. Many of the bodies were sent home, at least as many as were buried in the school graveyard, so not all entries are pertinent to this cemetery.
Thanks for your generosity in credit, but it's really not necessary, it only matters we get what we can recorded for these poor kids.

RE: William Keller #71896237
Well, it might be valid for the Mexican War or even the War of 1812. Those medallions did have the same shape, and I have often seen them misapplied to veterans of other wars. There is always a local organization who takes responsibility for placement of the medallions. What that may be, I can't say.
