Hannah and George Custard
I see that someone has requested photos for these two. I saw the note you left on Hannah Custers memorial, is it possible that these two were not moved, when the land was donated to PA. I have been to the Orangeville cemetery and I could not find them. Memorial #57294602 George & Hannah #57294640

Was your message meant for me? I don't know anything about the Custer family and didn't add them to the cemetery. I have a few family members buried there and those are the only ones that I posted.

I did get to Greenwood Cemetery today and got pictures of the grave for Alex, Martha and son Archie before my camera malfunctioned.... Which Norma Rice (Find A Grave #47597667)vs. Norma B. Rice (Find A Grave #47230264) would you like the memorials transferred to? And which Archie memorial would you like to keep - the original one (#50557905) or the one I created in the correct cemetery (#92460927)?

RE: Cemetery Location Renton, WA
Thanks for the information. I forwarded this to Kevin Pears who is actually working on that tree and manages the one memorial.
Thanks for the input. We appreciate all of the help with find-a-grave. It has been a great site for research and sharing.

RE: Samuel Custer
I checked the Mercer County Cemetery Inscription books (1983, Desantis) and there was no listing for Samuel CUSTER.
I did not see any VARNES family in the listing.
There was a Mary A. Custer listed, buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, Sandy Lake, PA. Buried with her:
Custer G., Dr. D. 1888 Age 26
Custer J. W. 1854-1893
Custer Mary A. 1830-1899
Custer Queen V. D. 1883 Age 17

I hope this helps.

I'll check and see what I can find in my database of Mercer County Families and let you know.

Do you know where Charles CUSTER and Mary Ann VARNES-CUSTER were from?
