RE: re; Edward Kovach
That's a real bummer about the other contributor's lack of response to hundreds (!) of errors. Sending corrections to is a workaround to an inactive account, if you are up for it; they are responsive to corrections. You can let them (edit@) know that you think the contributor is permanently inactive. The discussion forums also have threads about resolving similar situations if you are interested. Thanks for your note and best wishes on getting those entries fixed.

The Bethel Cemeteries Again
So for the 2 Bethel Cemeteries listed on Find a Grave, they each have their correct GPS.

However, their names should be altered on Find a Grave to be more clear.

If I have it right they should be as follows--

Bethel Memorial Park Cemetery
Near Brownsville
Wharton Twp.,
Fayette County, PA

Bethel Church of Christ Cemetery (Not active?)
Lower Tyrone Twp
Fayette County, PA

If anyone knows who entered each of these cemeteries in Find A Grave originally, that person could make the changes on the main cemetery page themselves.

If not, we could send the info to administrations at Find A Grave, and they would hopefully make the corrections in time. Let me know, I will be glad to contact them if needed.

In the mean time, I am sending messages to memorial managers who have memorials in Bethel C. of C. Cem. which should be in Bethel Memorial to move particular ones to Bethel Memorial Park.

Quite a few memorials have already been moved to their correct cemetery.

Bethel Cemeteries--Confusion
Hi, Here is a copy of the info that I left for Harry---

Hi Harry,
I ran into this situation as I began work on a Fayette County cemetery. I believe if you go to the link I will add, you will see a transcription for the cemetery, where you took your photos.

If it looks right to you, it is Bethel Church of Christ Cemetery, Lower Tyrone Township, Fayette, PA.

On Find a Grave, the cemetery listed now as Bethel Cemetery is a hodge podge of some that belong in Bethel Church of Christ Cemetery, and some that belong in Bethel Memorial Cemetery, and maybe others.

The Find A Grave Bethel Cemetery has the correct GPS for Bethel Church of Christ Cemetery. Did you enter the cemetery originally? If so, then you can just edit the name of the cemetery to hopefully make things clearer for others and then your memorials and photos are in the right place as far as I can tell.

If I can be any help, let me know.

RE: Bethel Cemetery Fayette County
Hi E.M.,

I'm a bit confused I'm afraid... I see 2 listings in Fayette County for a Bethel Cemetery (Bethel Cemetery and Bethel Memorial Park) and they are mapped at 2 separate locations.

The photos that I took for Bethel Cemetery are exactly at the location mapped. The graves that I added to Bethel Cemetery are located at that location as well. I noticed before that some of the other photos of stones entered for memorials at Bethel Cemetery showed a very well maintained area and had a feeling there was a mixup somewhere, but I definitely don't believe that the entries maintained at the two location should all be merged together into one.

You can contact me directly at and we can see if we can figure out what should be done with things.
