I have spent the last 10 years documenting cemeteries in the Beallsville/Scenery Hill/ Centerville area of Washington Co., PA - specifically Beallsville Cemetery and several Hill family cemeteries. Most of the photos I've taken can be located at www.beallsvillecemetery.org along with scanned images of interment records, lot owner books, plotmaps, obituaries, photos, for Beallsville Cemetery. There are 8000+ burials in the cemetery so I continue to build and add to the website. I have been adding memorials to this site for Beallsville cemetery, using a combination of interment records and tombstone inscriptions. I've noticed that some of the dates that are listed in the interment listings as death dates are actually burial dates and may be off by a day or two. For burials that have no associated tombstone, I can only list what is in the cemetery records. If you have any corrections for the death dates or other related information, I'm happy to hear from you so I can correct the cemetery website.
Re: Libbie TINLEY Brundege Hi Debbie, Thank you for all your time adding these memorials. My great great grandmother, Lydia Melissa Tinley Brundege, (Memorial# 63878458) has her last name listed as Finley instead of Tinley. For years we also thought it was Finley, due to the difficulty of reading the cursive writing on various documents. However, with the release of death certificates, we can see that Libbie's death certificate reads Tinley, as does Libbie Brundege's name on her daughter Rebecca's death certificate, which is the most clear. Please change Lydia's(Libbie) last name on the Find-a Grave memorial. Thank you.

RE: Thanks so much for all you do. Thank you Debbie, that means so very much to me. I was suppose to go next to him but John's dad also named John passed away a few years ago too and he bought the plot for me. But another family member passed and someone in the family put his Uncle in my plot! Boy did that hurt. Thank you at least I have his memorial..I so much appreciate all the work you do...thanks so much from so many!
Annie McKee Hamilton / Union Cemetery Debbie - Thank you so much for adding the headstone pic for Annie. This would be my Great Great Step Grandmother. I just tied the connection tonight and was surprised to find the headstone pic. Again THANK YOU for all your time and effort. Regards, Pam in Loxahatchee, FL
Lucinda Trexler Baker I found her obit & thanks. Can you update the cemetery website? It shows her maiden & last married names as Trexler Baker. The correct names should be Cook Baker. Trexler was her middle name. I appreciate you getting it corrected for historical purposes.
RE: Lucinda Trexler Baker You are AMAZING!!!!!!!!! Poor Uncle Ells did make some errors in his documentation of relatives and here is another booh-booh. All in all, he did a good job without the use of computers. I just found an article where an administrator was appointed to her estate. THANKS!
