I have been doing family history for quite some time.We have 3 children, Angela (Wilson ) Edwards, Pamela kay Wilson and Herbie lester Wilson.
Most of what i have in find a grave is my side and my husband side of the family.
Please do not use my picture or put them on another site with out asking me. I have spent lots of time trying to find information , going to cemetery' , taking pictures, walking cemetry's, going to courthouses. You can use my information for your own use but to put them on another site you need to ask and also anyone that has put pictures on my site you cannot use you have to ask the person that put the pictures on. I do not own them they do.

RE: William Park Johnson
Thank you for all your work on Find A Grave. I wish there was a way to add (link) people who were buried at sea or cremated. It seems as easy as naming a cemetery "Buried at Sea" and "Cremation". I will recommend that to Find A Grave. Thanks again.

RE: connie Louise Andrews hartwig
I Judy, Sorry I haven't gotten back sooner. Can you give me more information as to where you saw this information in my file. I have looked in both my personal file and the FAMMaster file and don't have these people listed. I would be happy to correct the info if I can find. them. Thanks, Debbie

RE: Beaver
Yeah that's what my family has been saying all along, the Horner's are also related LOL well one of these days we may get something solid on a date! It just makes me wonder if the date was turned around on the monument and should have read Jan 2, 1879 I have to be gone for a few days my brother is having surgery.

RE: Vores
Hi, Judy, I don't go for all the things told in family stories either, LOL Its amazing how things can get distorted. I live in Wyoming myself but was born and raised in Cambria County Pa.
I have submitted things including obits to the Blackburn site but never joined. So I did not know they would not post all the obituaries I sent them! Seriously you would think members would want to see them.
I have newspaper archives and Ancestry and have searched there but they don't have the coverage yet for parts of the area in Maryland although they started posting some of the Cambria papers recently on Newspaper Archives. I also use Chronicling America which is from the National Archives and is free.
so if I find anything in the future I'll let you know. I have spent a lot of time chasing around Maryland thinking she died there. I've been to the cemetery I just don't remember seeing this stone, it does say it was put up by he "children" on the base though. Curious.
Thanks again

RE: Benjamin & Eliza (Beaver) Vore.
Hi Judy, thanks for the reply the stone is baffling. I'm familiar with the Blackburn Association I sent them Elmyra obit a few years back which they did not have.
Yes, Abraham Beaver is with them in 1860 and in 1870 I don't have any problem with that. Must have had brain fart if I called him a Vore LOL Then he Benjamin Vore is a widower with his youngest son Charles in 1880 in Stoneycreek.
So I don't know.
The letters from my grandmothers sisters who did a family history project for school say she died when the family was in Maryland.
I am also a direct descendant. Wonder who put the stone up?
I have been looking for an obit or record for her death (Eliza's) for years. Did the Blackburn Society post one?
Thanks again

I don't have any other way of "getting" Lula except by your transferring her to me. I am a direct relative through Cooley family and spent many a happy hour talking family history with Lula before she passed away. I already HAD the obituary because it was sent by another relative who attended the funeral.
I'm unsure what the problem is or if you are having difficulty remembering that you transferred her or what (I'll have to go back and look some of this up for the two of us) but I would greatly appreciate your taking the conversation to email as I found the tone of your note left publicly very accusatory and rude.

I suspect his mother was Mary unknown as his father was not married to Lydia Coomes until 1842.

In answer to you question - i added the names for Hillside Cemetery from a list provided by volunteers who canvassed the cemetery. Unfortunately they did not include birth/death dates. I felt it was important to at least create a memorial for the person in case a family member was looking for their burial location. I've photographed the cemetery but have not had the time to add them to their memorial. Hope this explains my logic for the names w/o their birth/death dates.

Yes. Of course.
I have no connection to that family, just entering burials from the cemetery.
If you want any transfers, just ask!
