Bio and Links
I have a penchant for history, especially that of Revolutionary War veterans. These soldiers were the army that made up the 15% of the able bodied male population. 15%! That's all who were willing to fight for freedom! That's less than 1 in 5 or 15 out of 100 individuals!! Incredible.

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to these brave soldiers.

Julia Bayless Smith
Her death certificate lists DOD as May 7, 1916.
Her husband Byron Smith is listed in Rose Hill Cemetery, Hallstead, Pa 100618075. It's listed that he is the husband of Julia. Findagrave information seems to be wrong. Is there a way this can be corrected. Thank you.

RE: Stephen Harrison, Sr (#50225616)
Hi DMR,
Sorry, what I meant to say is that I can't delete the photo and neither can Paul; the website won't let us. I think only you can delete it because you added it. Sorry for the trouble. Thanks,
Mark

Hi DMR,
Memorial #50225616 is the correct one. On my screen, the second photo with the American flag says "added by: dmr". Neither Paul or I can delete it. I assumed only you could since it appears that you added it back in 2010. Thanks for helping out,
Mark

Stephen Harrison, Sr (#50225616)
Dear DMR,
Would you please remove the Bee Tree photo from Stephen Harrison, Sr (#50225616). I've confirmed that he is actually at Scott Cemetery. The photo you posted is actually that of his grandson Stephen (#148281706), son of William (#50225646).
Thanks,
Mark Harrison (ID #48899255)

RE: Lawsville Cemetery
Good Evening. Thank you for the speedy reply. I DID find the Lawsville Center Cemetery in Montrose with the help of the Susquehanna County Historical Society online page, Bing maps, and my recollection of the area from 1976 when I attended my grandfather's funeral. That is very interesting about the nomenclature Webster/Vance. Wish I could see these graves in person; but for now, it's great to see the photos that contributors post. Thank you!

Lawsville Cemetery
Hi. Can you tell me if the Lawsville Cemetery has changed it's name? I cannot find it on any map. My grandparents are buried there. I remember it being near Snake Creek and it was on a hill. Thanks. Joyce H

RE: Mary J ?
Wow,you are also a fast responder!. Your theory that the Mary J marker remnant could be what was left of the original Mary J. Hallock stone when her newer, current granite marker was put in place is more plausible. For now I'll hold both theories.

Yes, I really want to visit Rogers, planning to do so next spring. I live on the west coast. Meanwhile am making as many research plans/contacts as possible to make a productive search in PA and NY. Mary J. Hallock is my 3rd gt aunt, her parents my 3rd gt grandparents who are my #1 BRICK WALL.

Thanks so much for your offer to have a closer look when you return to Rogers. Maybe something will pop out.

Did you notice the note on this site (click Rogers Cemetery) about Rogers Cemetery written by someone visiting there in 2004? "-- there was a Lawn Mowing company on the same road not far from the cemetery and I found they had been funded for a while to keep the grounds mowed then the money ran out. At that time the Lawn Mowing company held the records for this cemetery." May be some wonderful clues if these records can be found.

Thanks so much for your interest and help. Very much appreciated. Best regards, MEJ

Mary J ?
You have done some marvelous work!! One of your postings is for Mary Jane (Jaques) Hallock in Rogers Cemetery, Wyoming County, PA. Another of your postings is the subject Mary J.? in the same cemetery. If the two markers are in close proximity, Mary J. ? could be Mary Jane Hallock's mother who is Mary (Coleman) Jaques, b. ca. 1878 in New York, died 04 Apr 1869 in Centermoreland, Wyoming, PA.

Is it possible to check this out if you are making any visits there?

The Robert and Mary (Coleman) Jaques family migrated from Orange County, NY ca 1820 to Northmoreland, Luzerne, PA. Robert died abt 1825, leaving a sizable family. Eventually Mary moved into the Hallock home where I believe she remained until her death.

Have been unable to find any death, burial info on Robert which would be most welcome. Much thanks for your work, MEJ
