|Bio and Links|
Let me begin by saying that cemetery research and genealogy are much more than simply a hobby for me, they are my passion. I desire to capture the history of every day people, to make sure their lives are remembered.|
In all my hunting, one of the stories that I've uncovered and touched my heart isn't a relation to me. In fact, she has no descendents of her own. Hers is the the story of a young girl known as Minnie Adams, "The Wild Girl of Brush Valley Township." If you get the chance, stop over at her memorial, read her story, and remember her.
Little Angels and Angel Mothers Project
A personal project of mine is to create virtual cemeteries for Pennsylvania infants and children and for mothers who died in childbirth. Please feel free to contact me with additions to these virtual cemeteries.
Read about Madeline Kunkle one Little Angel whose life story might break your heart.
Updates and Corrections
I am more than happy to work with others to make additions and corrections to the memorials I manage. That said, I very much appreciate when updates provide the source (that's not just a family tree someone found online). Unfortunately, I have been given incorrect information in the past and wish to avoid that.
When Memorials Don't "Look" Like You Prefer
Also know that for memorials of those who died 100+ years ago, the "traffic" is high as those individuals may have a 1000 or more descendants. Please understand that everyone has their preferences of what to post on a memorial and how it should look. The memorial may not appear exactly the way you want it (ex: the photo of the stone isn't at the top, there is death or marriage certificate included ), but there may be someone else out there who likes it that way. As long as what is posted on the memorial is respectful and relative to the person, I leave the memorial for the living to honor the dead.
When Resources Conflict
Always be aware that sometimes obits, death certs, and even carved headstones can have errors. In those instances of conflicting sources, I will make the best judgement I can and will note it in the bio.
Be Kind... Always
I do take pride in the memorials I manage, and I do my very best to promptly make updates that are sent my way. I take that responsibility seriously and always appreciate it when others manage their memorials with the same diligence and respect. One thing I've noticed across the board here at Find-A-Grave, kindness when making requests most often is rewarded.
I also would eagerly transfer management of a memorial page of a person whom I am not related (primarily anyone buried in New England are non-relations) to a descendant as well as Greenwood Cemetery. I do expect that if a transfer is requested that you are an active Find-a-Grave member and will continue to maintain the memorial and graciously network with other descendants to ensure accuracy.
However, please respect that I retain management of the memorials of my ancestors. If we are both descendants, I certainly respect the Find-A-Grave policy on transfers. If you are looking for a way to "gather" your family and loved ones together, please check out the "Virtual Cemeteries" feature on your profile. This is an excellent tool for you to connect your family together.
SENDING EDITS AND UPDATES
PLEASE send corrections/requests by clicking the "EDIT" tab at the top right corner of the memorial page. Then click "suggest a correction or provide additional information". For transfers, state your relationship and include your member number. I sometimes miss messages posted below, so you'll have much better luck emailing me through the "edit" function.
As for me, I am a work-from-home mom of several passions. Family, genealogy, freelance writing, and Bible study are just a few. Check out my bio here.

I am researching my gr gr gr uncle, Thomas Askin from the Cherryhill area. His parents were Joseph and Eleanor Askin who are buried in the Harmony Cemetery. According to his father's will that I found on Ancestry it doesn't appear that he had a wife (or she was deceased at the time of the will which was July 1880). His two sisters are noted with husbands and his third one who was not married.
There is a Thomas Askins (spouse: Jane) in the Harmony cemetery. I know this isn't my uncle because according to census he was born in PA and died in 1872. My uncle was born in Ireland.
There is a Thomas Askins buried in the Bethel cemetery with an obit attached. The memorial on find a grave shows he was born 1823 and died June 4th, 1896 (73 years, 5 months, 11 days).
And then there's a Thomas Askine (spouse: Elizabeth) buried in the Laurel Swamp cemetery. It says that he too was born 1823 and died June 4th, 1896 (inscription: 72 years, 5 months, 11 days).
It would seem that there's some confusion between the person buried in Bethel and the one in Laurel.
There doesn't seem to be a wife attached to the one in Bethel.

Thanks for the picture!
|Brian J. Ensley||RE: '77 Flood Victims|
You're note about Norman Pfeil #118891696 reminded me that I never got a photo of his headstone so thanks again for not just the extra info, but the reminder helped me. I added the photo and built memorials for his wife, son and grandson.
Hope all is well!
|Brian J. Ensley||'77 Flood Victims|
Thank you for the additional information. As for the "Jr." regarding Donald Cover, I'm going to add it to his memorial. I've researched the Cover's extensively but oddly enough, I don't have his parents.
Even if he wasn't technically a "Jr." in the traditional sense, if he was known as one, then I'm going to add it.
I decided to create a virtual cemetery for the '77 flood victims since that tragedy holds a special place in my heart- not only because I went through it, but because I lost a classmate as well.
Thanks again for the info!
Jenny, Thanks again, for the paragraphs, and the link. It will help much. darlene

Thanks for your interest in the Wetzels. These are some of my forebears. If you have any proofs I would be glad to have the sources for my records. I have accepted your edits. Darlene

I see what you are saying. Someone else added the memorial at a later date than I did. My dates were wrong so I just deleted my memorial page.
Oh no, never a pain! I agree with you whole heartedly and really enjoy accurate records! :)
