My name is Bill Ridge and I am researching the various lines of my family history (Ridge, Biles, Forepaugh, and Lownie with associated families). I am not on Find A Grave to see how many memorials I can generate. Rather, I would like to pay tribute to some of those who came before me.|
I enjoy helping others by photographing grave markers requested through Findagrave. On occasion, I may also photograph markers near the ones that are requested and I may create a memorial for that grave if one does not already exist.
You have my permission to use my FAG photographs in order to document your own family history.
Please ask for a transfer (or provide data through the Edit screen) if I "own" a memorial that pertains to a relative of yours. I have created those memorials so that interested parties may find information about members of their family.

Thank you so very much for checking. I think it will remain a mystery then. It is a beautiful picture. That you photographed the marker means that it will last much longer than its "slowly washed away by water and smog life," and it is really appreciated by admirers of the author as well as family members.

Please forgive my totally being puzzled. There are two memorials for Charles Brown, two different cemeteries. Your photo of his grave marker places him in Laurel Hill. He passed away before the cemetery was established, but was very likely moved there later.
I am working on a memorial for his wife Elizabeth Linn. My interest is that she is a great plus aunt, and making her memorial can tie a lot of loose ends together, but I want to be accurate.
My question is, how was he found in Laurel Hill Cemetery? Some online bios place him in the other cemetery.
Thanks so very much for shedding light on this dark subject.

Hello there. I sent you a few edits. Also, I've posted images to the memorials as well. Thought you might want to know. Cheers! :)

Hi, William - I have been adding the Emerick people to Laurel Hill Cemetery. There are a bunch of the Emerick people all moved to Laurel Hill Cemetery on the same date, including a George Emerick Find A Grave #: 143781604. It may not be the George connected to the Forepaugh people, but wanted you to be aware of the possibilities.
Some of these burials were for very old deaths, I believe, especially the ones connected to the two, named Battes Emerick.
Might be a very important cemetery for someone.

Just dropping you a quick note, Bill, to let you know that I found a photo of Gail vanFossin Mitchell, son to Iva VanFossen Brumback Mitchell and John Mitchell. Iva was daughter to William and Rebecca Ridge Brumback. I'm off ancestry right now, so leaving this message to you on Find A Grave. I noticed awhile back that there were some Van Fossen's in the Lower Tinicum Cemetery. Guessing the Ridge family knew them and that Rebecca gave her daughter Iva the middle name Van Fossen. Have a great week. - Sandra

Found a photo and added it of James Ridge who was son to Edward M. Ridge. Edward was Moses and Sarah McFarland Ridge's son. Enjoyed the story about James Ridge and his role as first ranger of the Treasure Island Boyscout Camp. Thanks.
