Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since 2001. I have added both family and non family members. Any additions or corrections are greatly appreciated. I have also added people that had both positive and negative contributions to society as well as some that were just caught up in events that they couldn't control. I feel we can learn from their mistakes as well as their accomplishments. Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.- George Santayana

I like to do corrections so send me what you have, preferably using the edit tab located on the upper right hand corner of each memorial. I want the memorials to be as complete as possible. Due to time constraints I don't always reply but I will do them within the 30 day period.

Note: As of 2/23/14 I should be all caught up with corrections. Please resubmit any that I may have missed updating the memorial.

RE: Joseph Russo
Big Ern,

Thanks, I hope you can find it. With the death of my mom in February, I am now starting to make the memorials for my family and linking them to each other. The death certificate for my grandfather is very important. Tell me how much and I will reinburse you.

BRILL Family of Phila. Pa
Hi BigErn,

TY for taking the time to create these wonderful memorials! I appreciate the openness about mistakes here. It's so easy to slip 1 finger and get the date wrong!!

Anyway....John George Brill is my aunts fathers family. I've been doing her families research for the last year and a 1/2. I have other children, photo's from her and other grandchildren of John G.'s that I'd like to connect to him as soon as I find them all. Would it be easier to send the info to you or would a transfer be best? I'm still new at this so I'm a bit worried about walking on other people hard work! I've only done about 40-50 of these and I need a vacation!! It's stressful trying to get everyone connected correctly....especially when so many have the same names!!

Anyway, TY for all you do here! Every little bit helps someone somewhere! Looking forwad to hearing from you!

I know it has been a while, but I was hoping to ask a favor of you. Is there any way you could make a copy of my grandfather, Joseph Russo's death certificate? I need it for geneology purposes.

Thanks in advance

RE: Conrad Miller sponsorships
Hi! So sorry I didn't get back to Find A Grave until now! Get busy but that's no excuse! Thanks for the corrections for Pierson- I'm very happy to add them- goodness knows I know I do not have the correct information. Only JUST found who all these people were after so, so, so many years of searching, wonderful!! There was a lovely woman my father remembered, Becky Miller Feyne, he didn't even know was his graunt! His grandmother Sadie Knarr was a little... odd. :)Her mother was Maria Annie... I'd had a notion she must have been a twin because the names were so, so similar, of course I see now they were not.

Anything I have wrong please do feel free to correct, no ego here- I've just been thrilled to find who on earth my grgrgrndmother was finally. She died when Sadie was a baby, her father when she was 10, in the soldier's home in Erie, vet of the 6th US Cav, then 50th PA Inf.

I'll get batter about being here, promise! :) And thanks so much again.

Alberta Daniels Withrow #4586751
Hi. I noticed that Alberta Daniels Withrow has passed on. I'm so sorry about your loss. I do have one question -- how can I make changes to the Findagrave postings she created for Old Wingo Cemetery? I am updating the burial listing for that cemetery and I wanted to add information for the individuals who are buried in that particular cemetery and listed on Findagrave for Old Wingo Cemetery. I'd appreciate any help!!
Thanks, Shirley :)
