Bio and Links
Bio Photo I do a lot of work with Civil War headstones. I had 44 replaced in the Upper Mauch Cemetery in Jim Thorpe, Pa. along with 4 in the Evergreen Cemetery and 2 in the Immaculate Conception Cemetery also in Jim Thorpe. I also go around the state and take pictures of Civil War headstones and put them on my web site which I have listed. Replacing a worn military headstone is quite easy. Just go to the Veterans web site and they will show you how to do it. It will take a little investigation, but it's well worth the effort.

Jonathan Dirk
Ray I just found Jonathan Dirk's-Derk's Civil War Pension Card. It is under Jonathan Derrick, the spelling his daughter Emma used. His wife, Priscilla had died before him so his mother, Catherine Kramer Derrick [Derk] was listed and the date was 18 January 1895. So that brings his date of death closer to possible Dec. 1894 or January 1895 I assume then?

John Dando
I believe John Dando buried at Shenandoah Heights, Schuylkill County, PA. First let me thank you for the work that you do. We intend to visit this grave site next month during the Memorial Day weekend.

Can I ask one favor of you? You have John listed as Jon. I was wondering if you could make the correction to the website?

If we are correct John Dando was born in Wales on August 2, 1840 and came to the US at the age of 11 and died on October 20, 1899.

Thank you again,

Email Problem
Every time I reply to one of your emails, it bounces. Are you getting them anyway? If not, perhaps we'd do well to correspond via Find A Grave?

I live in Erie and am working on a volume of grave locations for veterans of the Mexican War. I would like your permission to use the picture you posted of Henry Horncastle's grave in this compilation. I will cite you as the source.

Thank you.

Butlers @ Mauch Chunk
Dear Ray,

Thank you so much for posting the tombstone photos of my cousins-in-law William Butler and his second wife Ellen for my family and me. I'm also grateful that you posted tombstone photos for his first wife Fannie Packer (nee Skeer) Butler and her parents some time ago for my family as well. I'm blood-related to Fannie, her mother, and other Blakslees from your area.

Helping those who live so far away from their deceased loved ones is not only a selfless act of kindness on your part, it is a cherished and priceless gift that you give to us.

May God bless you and yours in all your endeavors!

With heartfelt gratitude,
Kati McSweeney
