Bio and Links
Bio Photo This started with my mother's photograph albums about 1999...flipping through, asking questions, slowly realizing that the info I was learning needed to be remembered well past that day.

Since that time, I've learned so much about my own history and the ancestors who came before me. I've gained an appreciation for them and the local history that I never had as a kid. Now the stories about the area where I grew up - southwestern Pennsylvania - took on new meaning. I've learned my ancestors' roles in that history and discovered their contributions.

My goal is to honor them all with a memorial that I hope will survive long past me.

Ancestors of research: Ambrose, Barnhart, Bitner, Buzzard, Coover, Countryman, Dellone, Dutocq, Eacus, Emerick, Grainer, Griffin, Haquin, Harbison, Holtzer, Karns, Kohler, Kuhns, Lauer, Long, Matthews, McAllister, McClarran, McNutt, Mechling, Mitchell, Myers, Nicely, Noel, Poet, Romer, Schmidt, Shirey, Spohn, Stepp, Thomas, Walker, Weaver, Weiss, and Wilhide.

Sprinkled among the ancestors' memorials are a few for friends I have lost. They, too, have played important roles in my life.

For all who have come before and walked the same grounds that I later found, I hope these memorials do them justice.

If I've created a memorial for a relative of yours (and it's not an ancestor of mine) and you'd like a transfer, please ask - via the edit tab. Family belongs with family.

Watsontown Cemetery PA
I visited this cemetery from CT twice last year...looking for my 4x great grandmother...found her!! I also went to a nearby historical society and made a copy of an informal survey of gravestones done in 1999. I am in the process of adding names to this cemetery if they are not already only up to the "B's" many will take me a while. It is a very large cemetery...well kept and still in use today. Let me know if you feel there are other names/gravestones there and I will look them up and let you know.

Good luck with your genealogy,

Otto Weiss' obit
I do not own Otto's memorial page and therefore posted it to his wife in an effort not to lose the info contained in it.
