Thanks for the very nice photo of his headstone.

Filled with gratitude
Bless you for adding the Goeltz photos from Hollenback! My family and I so much appreciate it. It is thrilling to click on the link and watch the photo of a grave I have never seen before appear on my phone!
Your service, especially during these cold days, is a gift. I wish you the best.

RE: Meyer Tombstones
Thank you for the clarification! I'll contact the memorial owner with a suggested cemetery correction for Herman Frederick Meyer.

I have created memorials for Mary E. (Burkle) Meyer (141409066) and Mary Elizabeth Bennetto Vonderheid (141412061) and am putting in photo requests. Thanks in advance for taking those photos and posting them!

Meyer Tombstones
Thank you so much for making photos of the tombstones for Russell Burkle Meyer, Herman Frederick Meyer, and their father, Herman Henry Meyer. I note in your group photo a fourth matching tombstone beside Herman Henry Meyer which is his wife's -- Mary E. Meyer (1864-1949). I will create a memorial for her and submit a photo request for it; would you be so kind as to accept the request and post that same group photo on it (unless you also photographed her individual stone)?

I am somewhat confused about cemeteries now and I hope you can help me. Are these four matching tombstones lined up together in Hollenback or Oak Lawn?? (I am thinking all are in Hollenback.)

When I found the grave of the son, Herman Frederich Meyer, 99529416, already listed in F.A.G., it was listed in Oak Lawn (and still is); however, I am thinking someone created it based on that little obituary attached to it which erroneously says Oak Lawn and that it is actually in Hollenback. Can you tell me if I am right? If so, I'll contact the owner of the memorial and get him/her to change it to Hollenback.

Sorry to be such a pain but will appreciate your help!

Patterson Memorials in Hollenback Cemetery
You were kind enough to locate the graves of Joseph Emmett Patterson and his wife Julia Frances Burnet some time ago in the Hollenback Cemetery in Wilkes-Barre. I am finishing a manuscript on the Patterson family genealogy and history from 1633. If you are in the area of the cemetery in the future, would it be possible to determine if James Patterson's daughter Eva Mary Patterson Cabell, her son Joseph Patterson Cabell and Eva's husband Robert Herbert Cabell are buried in the same plot? The last I could find them was in New Jersey circa 1946, but can't determine what happened to them. I suspect they may be buried in the Patterson plot in Hollenback Cemetery but I am not sure. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Joan,

Thank you for the grave photo of George McIntosh. You have enough Civil War Veterans to your credit that we can appoint you Sergeant!

Thank you for you help over the years. I wish you a Happy Holiday Season and a Healthy New Year!

Best wishes,

RE: May Catherine Bennetto
Thank you SO much! I erred when I said (I think) that May was his mother; she was his wife. I am still looking for a memorial for their son Bennetto III.

May Catherine Bennetto
Hello, Joan. On memorial 72187988 (John Delbert Bennetto III), you have posted a photo of his tombstone and this photo includes a second upright tombstone. I looked at it with a magnifying glass and see that is is the grave of his mother, May Catherine (Meyer) Bennetto, whose grave I have not been able to find. With this info I created a memorial for her (140003238) and request that you either post that same photo to her memorial or grant me permission to copy it and post it myself. (If I post it myself, it would not appear with your name as the contributor, but I would be happy to credit you in the caption if this is your preference.) Thanks for considering my request!

I suspect May's husband, John Bennetto II, is also there but there is no memorial for him either.

Thank you so much for taking the photograph of John Bennetto's tombstone! Hollenback looks like a lovely cemetery.
