Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Poughkeepsie NY area and I have been doing family Genealogy since 1971. Many of the relatives on my family tree were born and raised in Pennsylvania, a few have been traced back to the late 1700's. My tree expanded as familes from Germany Italy, Ireland and Croatia arrived and merged with this tree. A few of the names on my family tree are Shields, Hefenfinger, Metzger, Gordon, Glenn, Granese, Duff, Lepore, Coppens and Lenich.

RE: Margaret Horton
Thanks for taking all of these photos. I'm not sure how Maude is related but I was able to connect the others.

New Hamburg Cemetery

I need to locate this cemetery for a friend - can you tell me where it is located?

I know the description is to the East of the railroad bridge, but which side of the creek is it on and where is it in relation to the railroad station?

I just thought I would ask you rather than traipse around in the woods.

Thanks.. J.

RE: Metzger & Smith
You're welcome; it was a very nice stroll thru the cemetery! I'll transfer them to you (except for the mysterious Margaret).

Horace Metzger
I forgot, I also happened to pass a stone in a different section for a Margaret Metzger Kintzer. Don't know if that's anyone related to you but I took a pic of that too.

Hi, I took the pics of Horace and Ella Metzger's stones. Just wanted you to know there were also stones for Roy L. Metzger and Mabel Metzger. I created memorials for them which I can transfer to you if you'd like. Christine

RE: Gigliotti TS

I did not grow up in Punxsutawney altho' I've lived here 40 years. I found out the Cemetery used to be called West End Cemetery. Thanks for the info.

Gertrude Gigliotti
Hi Ron
I took photos of the Anthony C. Gigliotti and Gertrude Gigliotti stones. They were both in the Calvary Cemetery. I noticed you thought she might be in the West End Cemetery. I just wanted you to know that I put her stone on the Calvary cemetery site. If I can be of further assistance, please contact me.

Sue, Punxsutawney PA
