Bio and Links
I became interested in Geneology after the passing of my Grandmother. I live in California and all my relatives live in Berks County PA. So hunting for info 3000 miles away is difficult. I decided then to provide as much information about my local area as possible, so anyone searching this area who is far away, can get info.

Aice Dyer, FAG #23654802
Alice Dyer was born 2 June 1870, Smithfield, Lane County, Oregon; she probably died in Benton County, Oregon.

Her parents were William E. Dyer and Catherine Elizabeth (Emerick) Dyer. Therefore, the inscription reads - Daughter of W.E. & C Dyer (not G.)

Her mother, Catherine and her brother, Willie are also in this cemetery.

In 1979 my father did a booklet on the burials; my great great grandmother and gggrandfather are both buried here along with his parents.

Could you please add this.

Jesus comes array'd in light
And glory crowned his head
He comes in truth to judge aright
And raise the slumbering dead."

John Winden--North Dakota
Good day, I noticed that you placed a photograph on the memorial for John Winden in Hatton, ND. Are you related? Do you have more information on the family? I am working with students at the University of North Dakota on a history of all men/women from the county who died in WWI and any information would be useful. I posted a photo of his marker this last weekend. Would it be possible to use the photo you placed in a teaching packet I'm creating?

It appears you created the first memorials here and hopefully you can change the cemetery description.
All the deceased remains were moved to the Heritage Center(Old Gruber Wagon Works) when the Blue Marsh project began. According to what we have the memorials were destroyed or covered over to be part of the Blue Marsh Project. You
might want to note that in the description so people aren't expecting pictures of those tombstones to come back.

Good morning,
After a long search I have found your Find A Grave page for this lovely lady. She is the daughter of JHB and Alma Williams. He was the general secretary of the Church of the Brethren Missions Board in the early part of the 20th century. I have submitted the link to Mildred's parents on Find a Grave. I hope that this will meet with your approval. I have several pictures of the family taken in the early 1900s.
Best Regards,
Art Hoch, Fellow Find A Grave volunteer

Hi, I did some detective work and have figured out where his parents are buried. If you would be willing to transfer this memorial page I will correlate it all. I would appreciate the opportunity to connect this young boy who is all alone at Gingles Cemetery with his folks, at least by the hypertext links.

We had some pleasant contact years back about Armstrong Cemetery in Corvallis/Philomath area of Benton County. Thank-you for considering this.

Wrong Cemetery
I notice that you and I have same the burier records.
My sources have come from Early Pioneers of Pennsylvania Tombstone Reading. it was written in 1939. I came cross one of your memorials that is in my book. and I notice that someone left you a note that that person was buried in St Thomas cemetery. so I check it out and they do have a picture of that persons tombstone, so I started to see if any of my people were in there and out 180 people 165 were there with pictures of there tombstone so I think you and I have the wrong cemetery. In side of my book it says for this cemetery(so I thought) it reads the following:
The following inscriptions were from tombstone in the Graveyards of Bernville Cemetery at the edge of Bernville, Berks county, Pennsylvania. They were copied in 1913, which is fortunate for use since about half are no longer. Only those people who was born prior to 1801 have include. Will I found out in 1913 that St Thomas cemetery was called Bernville cemetery then later they change it to St Thomas.

Thanks for the transfers. I will try to sort it out. Did you get the original information from any documentation? It would help to know the source, if so, so I can backtrack. Thanks!
