I live in California but spend a lot of time in 19th century Western Pennsylvania, especially in Indiana, Cambria, Blair and Huntingdon counties, researching my family.
My memorials are created to honor extended family and to share genealogical information. My pet project is the old Nineveh/Wakefield/Rodgers Cemetery in Indiana County, Pennsylvania. Special thanks to Diane Nichols (#47683373) for her work photographing the remaining gravestones.
If you have corrections or additional information, please include your source.
If you want me to transfer a memorial, please let me know how you are related.
Harry Richard Dias You have requested a correction to Find A Grave Memorial# 83684002, my great grandfather. That change being his mother: Emma Rager vs Lucinda Wagner. From what source are you using to request this change?
Isaac Moreland Watters The Find A Grave site for Isaac Moreland Watters and for his wife Ida show them as being parents of Mrs. S. Paul Lloyd. Mrs. Lloyd, Gertrude, in her death notice is shown as the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Lindsay and is shown in the4 1900 Hollidaysburg, PA census as living with the Lindsays. In Mr. Watters newspaper death notice he states that Mrs. Lloyd is his sister. My Lloyd nephews are grandchildren of Mrs. Lloyd. Curiously my name is Moreland Waters Houck. My great grandmother was Eliza Jane (Waters) Houck, born in 1829 and I believe is descended from John Moreland and Jane Waters. Can anyone explain the conundrum of why the Watters family claim Mrs. Lloyd as a relative? Thank you.
I saw your edit regarding Samuel Mack's death year. His stone does say 1852, but my notes from the court house say that his death was certified in 1851. I may have made a mistake and will look at it again when I am in Indiana. Do you have any other sources that I may not know about? Samuel is my 2nd great-grandfather so I would be interested...
I belong to the Facebook page for Find-a-Grave and was told by admin there that "the stone does the talking." Therefore I add notes in the bios about differing dates on stones and death certificates, newspapers, etc.
