Any connection with you? The research is never done and the story is still being told.

When I run across someone who has yet to be remembered and honored, I add them here. If I have added a member of your family, I will gladly turn the memorial over to you or update them with additional information. And I thank the many others who have added memorials of my family members.

RE: Romanyak
OK. You need to put him in the right cemetery & add his dates so I can connect him to his wife. Thank You.

RE: Romanyak
Mary , I'm sorry. I don't know what is going on with this but it has a post from you for Brandon Cemetery & one from me for Hillsboro Memorial Gardens. He is in Hillsboro. Your memorial for him is #85028678. My # 152188016. I didn't know you had put one in as I didn't see it.

Hi Mary; I just sent you an edit for my cousins husband. She just passed & I noticed that you did not have all of his information. I'm not sure how to do this according to find a grave rules so I thought I would send you a note. My #48338520. Thank You.

RE: Forcht
Hi Mary,

Just getting started on doing what you're doing, trying to leave behind some family history and photos for others.

So far I've found you have John W Forcht 1865-1951 and wife Margaret in North Cem. They are in South (Main St) Cem along with much of their family and in-laws and decedents.

BTW, John and his wife 'began' the Forcht's in Butler coming over from Germany.

Many of the Forcht family you have shown in Butler Pa North Cem are actually buried in the South Cem. I am Forcht descendent and have researched our family and documented most all of their sites.

BTW they are listed on the South Cem location

I don't know how to correct this mis-information.
