|Bio and Links|
I started researching my family about two years ago. After deciphering all of their notes and information, I realized there are many missing pieces in our family puzzle. I know that all of the pieces won't ever be found, but I cant start somewhere! Hopefully I can be of help to you!|

|Georg Thomas||RE: Jake Snyder|
Hi again, Nat,
I deleted the duplicate memorial and see that the link for Winona Edna is now appearing on the one you created. It's looking good!
I'm not from Clarion County, but did live there for 20 years, and have been visiting there all of my life. If you'd like to hear more, feel free to send me a regular Email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Georg Thomas||RE: Jacob Snyder|
By all means, do add the Clarion Democrat article to Jacob Snyder's Memorial, but please do so exactly as I have it in the message I sent to you as a suggestion. Pamela Myers-Grewell sent it to me and she and Paul Kifer are the ones who should be credited (not me). As for the family links that were on the memorial I created, I have already linked his wife Huldah to yours and have submitted a suggested edit for their daughter Winona Edna, with an explanation that it is to correct merged duplicates. Hopefully, the latter will show up soon. I've also submitted an edit for his death date, that I verified by bringing up a May 1887 calendar. The date of the article is a few days after.
The only other suggestion I have involves your photo of the government grave marker for Jacob. I took the liberty to copy and Photoshop it and have what I believe is a good result. I've uploaded it to the memorial I plan to delete so you can take a look. If you like it, I thought you might want to use it instead of the original.
Jacob's wife Huldah was my grandfather's first cousin. Huldah's father, Robert Williams, was my great-grandfather's older brother. I too heard stories growing up about how "Jake Snyder" was killed by a train. When I was young, we used to visit Huldah's and Jacob's granddaughter Shirley Eaker, who lived down the hill from the cemetery next to Piney Creek. I may actually have a photo of Jacob, and if I do, will scan it and add it to your memorial later this winter.

Hi Natalie Rose,
It appears that I have inadvertently created a duplicate memorial for Jacob Snyder (Find A Grave Memorial # 134987190) I am happy to delete it and have submitted a few suggested edits to the one you created, assuming we're dealing with the same Jacob Snyder. Let me know.

... oh, and Cole's Island too? Well... I don't go that way frequently but it is on the way to my best friend's house in my home city. And I am planning on making a trip in the next few months. I want to go down before the snow comes - Cole's Island would be about two hours from here. Not unreasonable, just need to plan for it. :)

You are very welcome for the photo of William Orser's stone. The cemetery itself is not maintained by the town, but the woman who's house sits directly in front of it tries to do the best she can. She keeps it neat and tidy and respects the stones as much as she can (when they break, she picks them up if they're not too heavy, etc.) It's a real shame that the town isn't doing anything to keep it preserved. I've heard that, while there is no marker for Mary Blake, that there is a portrait of her in the Hartland Town Hall (which is actually, down the steep embankment and across the street from Orser Cemetery). The next chance I get during a weekday, I want to try and stop in.
Now... I did receive your email. And I see that you have relatives in Lansdowne Cemetery and Barker Cemetery. I'm planning a trip to Barker Cemetery very soon (it's about a 20/30 minute drive). But Lansdowne Cemetery, well I drive by that one every day on my way to work, and then again on my way home! I'll see if I can sneak off this weekend sometime, since the weather's nice and see what I can find for you. I will also try to take a look in the Mount Pleasant Church Cemetery to see if any names match the ones you mention. That one is just up the road from my house, I could probably see it from my porch if we didn't have so many trees.
You are related through the William Orser line? This is my spouse's side of the family. William is his 6th-G-Grandfather. I'd love to share info with you!
lol Hi NatalieRose.
It was great meeting you too. I think I only found the last person on the Kitt list today but I walk to get outside. It truly was odd that our family members were so close too.
Same here, any thing you need let me know.

|Carrie Gascoigne Zahra||Orser Cemetery, Hartland NB|
William Orser is my spouse's 6th great grandfather. I went to the cemetery yesterday and took photos of each and every tombstone there. Unfortunately, the town of Hartland, despite that the cemetery is now home of its founding father, does not want to maintain upkeep of the grounds. There is no path, no marker, no fence or anything, it is literally in some woman's back yard. She and her husband mow it, and if a stone breaks, they prop it up if they can so it doesn't get reclaimed by the earth. But some of the larger family monuments have actually been stolen (such an atrocity!) and some are broken to the point it's too difficult to discern whose name is on them (I deliberatly decided to not take photos of those ones). I looked through all the photos I have and while I too would love to have Mary Craig (William's first wife), there is nothing there. I believe I do have her mother's (?) though (Ann, wife of Jacob Craig), which I will share as soon as I sort through the 30 photos I took. I have other Orser photos though - Albert, Samuel B & Samuel D among them.
|Mark Humphrys||Fannie (Cullen) Hoffman|
Hi there. Thanks so much for your pictures of the grave of Fannie (Cullen) Hoffman. I have taken the liberty of including them in my family history site:
crediting you and linking to you of course. I hope that's ok. Maybe you could email me - see contact details on the page below. Thanks. Mark.
|LaQuetta Boren||Phillip Stong/Stang|
Hi, I found you after a very long night of searching different sites. I believe from what I have found that Phillip Stang is my 5th great Grandfather following my dad up on the paternal side. I was wondering if you had found anymore information.
|Kathy F.||Phillip Stang Photo|
Hi Natalie- I had a picture of your 6 G-grandfather's stone already and uploaded it today. It's not a great picture because the sun was starting to go down. If I can, I will get a better one and upload it. But, you can see that it says 1726 and 1813 so I am sure it is the right one. However, all of the stones for that family say Stong instead of Stang so maybe there was a spelling change along the way. Good luck with your research! Kathy
