I have been interested in researching my family links for a long time. I began actively working on it for about a year and a half, collecting data and finding/photographing graves etc.. I have just found this site and am excited about joining it. The families that I am working on primarily are DeGarmo, White, Rittenhouse, Bootie, Kittle, Wagner and Jones.|

|Kimby P.||RE: Rosella Rhodes|
You're very welcome. I wasn't sure either, sometimes the stones have the wrong dates on them. Thanks!

There should be a notation on this memorial that it is a tribute and not an actual burial for him. Many towns and/or GAR posts put up monuments in their local cemeteries to honor their dead. He was buried initially on the battlefield, then when the national cemeteries were established after the war the bodies were removed from battlefield graves to the closest national cemetery.

Thank-you for your entry for Cleore. I've been researching the Klock family and have come across the following obituary at FultonHistory.com
You may wish to revisit the date of death of Cleore from her headstone.

Peg, You posted a photograph of a stone in the Bidwell Cemetery that is not readable. When I encounter a stone like this, and know that no further damage can be done to the stone because it is in such sad shape, I use shaving cream and a spackle knife to obtain the information. I hope you don't think I am terrible, but if you are family, it is your stone anyway. Just a thought...Lisa

|Rhonda K. Blackman||Re: Charles Stanford|
Thank you for the photo. I was wondering if his wife Annie had a stone? Or, is there any other Stanford's in the area Charles is buried? I was up there a couple of times and could not find this one. Could you tell me the location of his stone? Thank you again!
|emily kaufman||RE: Hi Peg!|
Thank you! I have been scouring the internet. I found a Degel Israel Synagogue. I wondered if there was an affiliation. But for the life of me, I cannot seem to get an address or phone number!
|Family Hunter||Sarah & James Stott|
I have their plot numbers if that helps you.

|emily kaufman||Hi Peg!|
How are you? A few weeks ago, you took a picture in the Degel Israel Cemetery of my father's brother, "Baby Kaufman"
My family and I are looking to see about making a donation to that cemetery, but I cannot find the phone number for it anywhere! Do you know if there is a different name for the cemetery? Is it still functioning? Is it abandoned? You have already been immensely helpful. If there is any way that you have some information on this cemetery that would help me to be able to contact it, I would be so grateful!
Is there anything you know?
