Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you for stopping by my profile page on findagrave.

I first started using findagrave to locate "famous" graves and quickly became more interested in the non famous side of findagrave. I love walking through cemeteries and photographing all the history they hold.
After the passing of my beloved grandmother Dorothy Johler Cruser I decided to start adding all of my family, which lead to my love of genealogy. I believe everyone should know where they came from and findagrave is an excellent way of leaving a place for future generations to search. I also enjoy strolling through all the other memorials on here and reading everyone's stories. I always leave a token when I visit as a way of letting their loved ones know they were visited and thought of.

On April 8th I lost my best friend, my cousin Cindy Lou Corby Ritter, please stop by and leave her a token. Her loss has been extremely difficult on all of our family.

Please visit my very dear friend, who passed away on 1/10/11 Tiffany Michele Spangenburg.

Thank You to those of you who leave tokens on the memorials of my loved ones.

Yes, Josiah Twist is not carved on the stone thus a big mystery to us. What makes it more difficult is no records in the recently published death records in Pa. He dropped off the census after 1920 and was old at the time. He was living with his daughter Minnie Jordan at the time. I checked states death records where his sons and daughters lived still no record.

This burial location at the cemetery is at the old Odd Fellow site and maybe records through the cemeteries section.

Possibility he might be buried there.

Benjamin Roberts
Hello Dorothy,
My name is Dan Roberts and my great-great grandfather is Benjamin Roberts (#121456702) buried at Pittston City Cemetery. It's been tough to find a volunteer to take a photo of his grave. I was wondering if it's not to much trouble if you could take the photo and also one of his brother, William Roberts (#133120610). I live in Washington State so I'll probably never get back there. If you could do this it would be much appreciated....Dan Roberts.
