"She reigns upon her dusky throne,
'Mid shades of heroes dread to see;
Among the dead she breathes alone,
Persephone - Persephone!"

Mount Zion Cemetery
Hello -- I am desperately searching for photos of the markers for two relatives in Mount Zion Cemetery. I have even gone out to the cemetery while in New York in 2004 from Washington state, but had very little luck. We did eventually find the marker for Josephine Stignitz, born 4/10/1844 died sometime in 1915. She was buried on 7/25/1916 so our date of her death is probably wrong. Or the cemetery's is which reportedly was located at 14R-9-None. The marker had been knocked down and we did manage to get some photos on that trip but I cannot locate them. We never were able to locate the marker for her son, Gustave Adolph Pressburg born 5/27/1878 and died 3/11/1921 buried on 3/13/1921 which is supposed to be located at 10L-5-2-14 Wishnaw. We need to get photos of his marker in particular. Are you able to help me with this effort at all? If not, do you know one of your Find A Grave friends who can? I am more than happy to reimburse you for any costs, gas, tolls, your time and effort, whatever it would take. This is a dead end for our family. We knew that Gustave had emigrated from Budapest in 1906, but we had not even known that Josephine emigrated until we tripped over her marker. Please let me know if you are able to help me at all. My regular email address is sandracfitzgerald@comcast.net or you can call me anytime on my cell phone at (562) 237-2591. Thank you so much for your time and effort.

Hi, the above is at least one of the photo requests you have in Sts. Peter and Paul Cemetery in Springfield, PA. If you would call the cemetery office and post the locations, we volunteers would be happy to fulfill it. Thank you!

Aulenbach's Cem. map
Hello and happy new year!

I have been tracking down my 4g-grandmother Harriet Templin Rogers who is buried in Aulenbach's Cemetery in Mt. Penn, PA. I have come to you because you posted a map of that cemetery. Sadly, the version online is not easily readable. Would I be able to obtain from you a higher resolution version of that map? Thank you so much.

Sincerely,
Tom Miller

I added the photo for John and his wife, they have a memorial under the correct spelling. The dates agree.

I have found Isabella and John Houston. Made correct on last name. If the other memorials are yours, you may want to correct spelling.It is not Huston but Houston.

Hi,

I was hoping you might transfer Edna Z. Gibson Bilson (Memorial #32535595)to me? She is my husband's great aunt. I have more information on her; middle name, first marriage (Bilson was her second husband), parents, siblings, etc. If you do not want to tranfer her because she is connected to your family, please let me know and I will supply you with the additional information.

Thanks.
