I'm a passionate genealogist spending all my time on my own family tree including distant and married in ancestral lines while trying to dabble in as much genealogy volunteerism as possible. I'm even making it a career so I don't have to take breaks as much. ;) Hobby since 1999, profession since 2007.

RE: Uriah Knapp Looking at the entries for the West Genoa Cemetery, I must have had a cemetery burial list that was put together by someone who probably walked the cemetery recording the names and dates. Some of these lists were recorded in the 40s & 50s, and even then dates and names were not always legible. Unfortunately, I did not keep a record of where I got the list nor from whom. Wish I could be of more help.
McElwee A couple weeks ago I sent you some changes for the McElwee Family in Adams County, Pennsylvania. They are in the mew edit in Contributor Tools Would you please check and make the changes. They are my family. Thanks Jim Wierman
Severns Grave Stones Hi Michael, I just returned from the Asbury Cemetery in Cinnaminson, Nj and have uploaded pictures of Lydia, Samuel and Susan Severns to the Find A Grave pages. I know you did not request these photos so you would not get a notification e-mail stating they were posted. I hope you enjoy them and find some valuable information. (Lydia's birthdate for example. : ) ) Pat
RE: Archie Page Ross, Highland Memorial Park, Ocala I have talked to all the members of the Cemetery Project Committee to try to answer your question about the source of the middle names. Unfortunately no one can remember this entry of September 4th 2011. We tried to determine the answer to your question, but were unable to do so. Sorry we could not be of help in this instance.

Studebaker burials in Rock Chapel Cemetery 15 August 2013 Dear Michael, Leaving a public message seems a whole lot easier than wading through your many genealogical involvements to reach you directly. Regarding Rock Chapel in Adams County: note that all of the Studebaker / Studebecker burials are family members of Peter "G" Studebaker. Please note the middle initial "G" which differentiates him from other Peter Studebakers in Adams and York counties. Much of the research of earlier genealogists of Peter G., as published in "The Studebaker Family in America, 1976" is incorrect and incomplete. But it provided the basis of my research to, hopefully, "set the record straight." Can share selected data via GEDCOM for Find A Grave if receptive. Sincerely, Sandra A.

RE: Frank S. Rowland You had the section they were in and I happened to stumble accross them. The cemetery is quite large and is terraced around the valley it is in. To find a request without a section is like finding a needle in a haystack and the office people aren't very helpful unless you are related.
