Bio and Links
Bio Photo I find copying headstones interesting, I like finding interesting people with interesting story's. Most my family buried in the greater Philadelphia area but I live in the Harrisburg area so I'll copy headstones here. Worked inside most my life and wanted to be outside after I retired so copied headstones and published them in the Quarterly once issued by the Capital Area Genealogical Society.

Please use 'edit' tab on memorial page for corrections and or additional information.
I now strictly adhere to the Find A Grave guidelines regarding transfers. No exceptions. Requests made that fall outside of the guidelines, or do not state relationship, are no longer being acknowledged. Virtual cemeteries are the way to "gather" your ancestors together.

Please don't justify an out-of-guideline transfer request for the sake of adding links and/or other information. Am perfectly capable of doing this, especially now with the new EDIT system - much quicker than transferring. If you decide to not forward information or links because a transfer isn't done, then that's your decision.

James Buckaloo Memorial
Bob:

Thanks for the edits to the bio section of James Buckaloo's memorial. I couldn't believe I actually found a photo of his Spanish American War company taken in Harrisburg that I added. Then Sec. of State John Hay called it "a splendid little war" and his 4-5 months in service in Puerto Rico was simply an exciting adventure - those who went to the Philippines had a much different experience with the Philippino insurrection.

Best, Barry

Franklin Wiest
Uncle Bob, You have Hunter listed as my grandfathers middle name. And, I saw Leroy's gravestone on here, but my point is he is not listed as one of my grandfather's children on my grandfather's page. He is not listed as one of my father's sibling's either. Since you created the page for them can you not add my Uncle Leroy?

Love Lynda

Franklin Wiest
Franklin Wiest had a son Leroy Ronald Lamar Wiest. He was killed in an accident on Milton Hershey's farm on 8/6/1953. He was born on 11/21/1942. He is not listed as Franklin's son, Frank Jr's, Floyd, or any of the other children's pages. Also, I'm pretty sure Franklin Wiest's middle name was not Hunter. I am in the process of finding out for sure what his middle name was. However, I believe it was Harper since I have been finding records with that name, and Frank Jr's middle name was Harper. I will get back to you with as much info as I can obtain. Thanks so very much for keeping up these sites. They have been so much help to me as I research my family tree.

Stroh Memorials
Bob:

Once again thanks for the quick edits on the Stroh memorials in Paxtang cemetery: John Nelson Stroh and his wife Mary Ellen Miller. I may be getting back to you with further edits to John's if, in fact, I can nail down the name change from Straw to Stroh from his parents' to his generation.

Best, Barry

Hannah Pincott Woffenden
Hello Robert:
In confirming the cemetery in which my great great grandmother was buried, Hannah Woffenden I found you have added her name to Find A Grave, Thank you! Memorial #109055658
However, in reading the information you have posted for relationship I do not agree with the fact you have James listed as her son. I do agree her husbands name was James and he also is buried in the same cemetery. Hannah's husband James died in 1904 in Cambria County, PA and was brought back to the Methodist Cemetery similar situation as Hannah.
James and Agnes were married in England and immigrated into the USA about the same time has Hannah and her James. Memorial # 109055240.
The James E. noted could be the son of James & Agnes Memorial# 109055241
I would appreciate if you could review your information and make a correction to the relationship noted.
Looking forward to a response
