RE: Hubbard
Thanks for your quick reply. I, too, am new and had the same thing happen to me. I can walk to my local cemetery and by the time I took it, found someone else had already posted it! lol

I had searched for Hubbard and couldn't find him, so I started a memorial and then found him and the pic. Don't know what happened there! (newbie I guess)

I would like to see the updated one and thank you.

I actually have quite a few relatives in the Attica cemetery and would like to request other pictures. I will do it as I put their information in.

Thanks for your kindness,

Sandy in WA state

Hastings Tombstones
Hi Willdeanna,

Thank you so very much, for getting the tombstone pics. for the Hastings. You took more than I had asked for, which leads me now to find out who they are. Might be family that I didn't know existed.

RE: Family Van Sickle
Hi Willdeanna,

Obtaining a death certificate is the easiest way that you can find a place of burial. You can try contacting someone from the website in the previous message that I sent to you, or you can request a copy of a death certificate through the Pennsylvania Department of Health at:

Of course, if you need a to find the date of death, then your search will be a little tougher. I do know that New York state kept death records as early as 1880. These records are available on microfiche that you may be able to order from your local library. The Steele Memorial Library in Elmira, NY, has a copy of this microfiche. You may wish to contact them to see if they will loan the microfiche to your local library. For more info. on the microfiche, please read the following:

You may also want to contact your local Family History Center (FHC). These are branch centers of the great Mormon Library in Salt Lake. You do not have to belong to their church to use their facilities. To find a local FHC, please use this website:

I would also like to refer you to Joyce M. Tice's wonderful website on Bradford and the Tri-Counties area:

And finally, one option you may wish to try is a volunteer through RAOGK. If you have a specific date of death, the volunteer for Bradford County may be able to find an obituary for you:

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do.

RE: Bettis and Van sickle family
Hi Willdeanna,

Thanks for contacting me. Although my records for Pennsylvania are very limited, I strongly believe that your grandmother is a descendant of the James Reuben and Mary Eliza (nee CRAMNER) VAN SICKLE family. There were a few unrelated VAN SICKLE families that lived at one time in Bradford County, but it is the family of James Reuben VAN SICKLE that lived in the township of Towanga. James Reuben VAN SICKLE had at least 16 children and tracing them all has been very difficult.

I would like to suggest that you contact the Bradford County Pennsylvania Register & Recorder office. Their website has a genealogy request form that you can fill out and send to them. Their site is at:

The VAN SICKLE family is buried at several different cemeteries in this area. You may want to check into the Oak Hill Cemetery in the town of Towanda, Durell Cemetery, in the town of Asylum, and in Woodlawn Cemetery, in naerby Elmira, Chemung County, New York.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Hope you have a very happy Independence Day.

Very sincerely,
Jeannie Miyama
