RE: Merci
Hi Randy,

The cemetery is relatively easy to find ... if your starting point is where I live. :-)

It's on Route 407 just south of Fleetville. From Scranton, you would need to get to the Clarks Summit area. You can get there using the Scranton Expressway (Route 11) or Interstate 81. Route 407 is also named Abington Road. On 407, you will pass Lackawanna State Park, then Route 438. About a mile further (just before Clarkson Road), you should see Chase Cemetery on the right.

Alternatively, you could take Interstate 81 to the Route 107 exit, go west on 107 to Fleetville, turn left on 407, and go south a mile or so. In the case, the cemetery is on the left.

I would give you an idea where the stone is, but I don't really remember. It's not a large cemetery, though. I think it might have been towards the right-hand side and not too far back.

RE: Sarah Mae
bonjour comment ca va? (hope thats right) The contact name for the cemetery will be Alberta Duck her number is 269-965-1999 ext 259. She will get you in touch with the man who is the "grounds keeper" and the one who has been doing all the work in the cemetery for ever. I will try to catch him still at the cemetery I have been looking for his truck, I guess you can say Im stalking the cemetery LOL.... No not really, Im not the weird... I will still try to get more information if you would like me to. Just let me know. Its almost as if you need to set up an apt. with this guy to did into the record. Lots of history in the cemetery and he has alot of information about everyone. Au revoir for now.

RE: Sarah Mae
The man at the Cemetary has been hard to track down, he is still there, but it sounds to me at the Bedford office he has been out on leave, he is returning on Monday the 8th, so I am going to go there on my lunch hour, Im sorry I didn't respond, things got a little crazy around work, but I do have it in my schedule to go there Monday and get all the information and get the right contact information for this guy. So Monday night I will get off work about 5pm EST, so I will get the info to you right away. So sorry about the delay.

RE: Sarah Mae
I know because the cemetery is so small I can find out the best time to reach him. I don't know his name, I can find that out also but he has been there for 36 years, he has alot of informaiton about the cemetery, that is why I love talking to him, he is like a book and remembers alot, I know on the ladies stone it said she was in the Military I want to say air force, but could be wrong. I will try to get his information in the next day or so, and when he will be in the office so hopefully when you call you can talk directly to him, I know he goes back and forth from the main office in urbandale to bedford which is about 5 miles only I will let you know when I get the info...

I have not taken a photo yet, I just wanted you to know, that I talked to the Cemetery and we have the name Sara Mellin, but in Sec 8 lot 34 which is located on the "Fellows" family lot the Stone states that it is Mae Mellins Gone home, no dates or anything. Next to this stone is a lady by the name of Donna Gene Hodges who is still alive but has her stone there, the man at the cemetery remembers and talked to Donna Hodges the day of the Burial, If you think this is the same person, I will be more than happy to run back and grab a photo for you, just let me know. Im on vacation this week, so my son and I will be spending time hunting. Thanks

I have posted your photo request for Theodore. He has a companion stone with viola his wife however she is not yet buried there. She is either alive bless her soul and 108 or she was not buried there in that grave. I checked in the office.
