Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started doing genealogical research ten years ago because I wanted to give my mother a family tree for her 80th birthday. I havn't stopped since. Findagrave is a great resource and research tool and I recommend it to anyone who is doing research. And where else can you go to ask some stranger, 3,000 miles away to take a photo for you for free...and they do it? I'm glad to be part of this community!

Photo taken August 2008 in West Chester, Pennsylvania. David Hazleton Gardner at the grave of his grandfather Hazleton Mirkil.

I was at the Vernor cemetery today and have found a few photos. I noticed one of them Francis M is the son of Benjamin and Lucinda. You may want to link him to the family. Let me know if you need any more in my area.

RE: Mirkils at Lawnview
Right. I saw the butler marker, that was uncovered in an attempt to find your family's marker.

Is this grave marked by the cemetery? I will be happy to go if the grave is marked. This is not a hop skip and jump from my house so I don't want to waste time and gas on a fool's errand.

I am sure you feel the same way if roles were reversed.

I will not unearth a marker - that is the cemetery's responsibility.

RE: Mirkils at Lawnview
I will take pictures as long as you call the cemetery, tell them you are coming to take pictures and have them mark the graves.

RE: Mirkils at Lawnview
It was explained to me that there may have been upright headstones in the former cemetery, but because they were moved to this section of Lawnview, the stones could not come with the bodies because Lawnview does not allow uprights in this section.

Rommel-Bromley - Mount Peace
Regarding your two photo requests for Rommel and Bromley in Mount Peace I have some information for you.

One entire section of the on-line records show section V as section U. It is a microfilm operator's error. I have verified in other ways that the section is indeed V. In other words your lot stated U-299 is really V-299. We have been to the cemetery and all of the graves in the area of V-300 are not in sequence, underground rocks?, trees?, who knows. We couldn't find any of them. I now think that group was placed along the fence by, or within, the W section. Next time we are in the cemetery we will expand our search. Regards, -JohnF

David Seyferhelt-Mount Peace
Regarding your photo request for David Seyferhelt in Mount Peace I have some information for you.

The cemetery burial records show that David is buried in lot B-364 with Daniel Seyferhelt, age 72, buried 1889, and Mary Seyferhelt, age 84, buried 1897. A note on the lot record says "Headstone and sill removed summer 1936".

I am very familiar with this section of Mount Peace. I did three photos a few feet from this location in May. Most of the old marble & sandstone stones were removed by the cemetery many years because they sunk, toppled, or broke and became hazards to the mowing crews. There is virtually zero chance of finding anything on this lot. Regards, -JohnF

I am not able to locate any records for the Vernor Cemetery. In going through the Masonic Cemetery records here in Nashville there is nothing about these people. Sorry I was unable to help more.

Sharon Carter
Hi David,
I fulfilled the photo request for Sharon Carter at West Laurel Hill Cemetery yesterday but for some reason it is still showing up on the requests even though there is now a picture. I used the new App so that probably has something to do with it but I'm not sure. I wanted to let you know that it was done though.
Thanks and have a great weekend!

RE: Anna Booz
David, I found the record on Family Search while trying to find information about my 4th great grandmother. Her name was Mercy Ann VanHorn and she married Charles Booz. On most Census and other records she went by Anna… with the record having a middle initial of "M" it could be her… or it could be some other Anna with a surname/maiden name beginning with M… I just don't know, but since it's close, I wanted to research it and also to give you her death information.

I will the call the cemetery on Monday, to see what else is involved in the burial records. Since there's no headstone photo can you tell me how you came about making the memorial?

I don't know if this is her, but it could be… I have more research to do.
