Bio and Links
Bio Photo Interested in family history and the history of O'Hara Township for many years, I am a stockholder of Greenwood Cemetery, on the Board of Managers, secretary to the Board of Managers and historian for Greenwood Cemetery in O'Hara Township, Allegheny County PA, near Pittsburgh.

The main list of facts for all memorials will be the burial permits filled out by the local funeral home and the state of PA death certificates. These may contain dates of birth which need to be confirmed, but were the best information available at the time of death.

If a memorial states "No Tombstone" please do NOT request a tombstone photo unless you know that one has been placed within the last 6 months. ALL existing tombstones in Greenwood have been photographed and posted.

Due to some people on the site, I am now restricting information available on the memorials. I have said that if I am pestered about a memorial I would eliminate it. Now I have done so. Researchers will not be happy, for I am the only one with some of this information. I have just had open-heart surgery and now someone has aggravated me on purpose. No dates will be changed on the memorials without official proof that there are documents which show a different date. All info is from the state of PA after 1906.

I have recently had surgery and while I recuperate, I will not be doing any extensive research.

William O. Schmidt
Thank you for the transfer of my Great Grandfather's memorial. Please know I have any
intention on changing anything on my Great Grandfather's memorial and I profusely appreciate all you do for Find A Grave. Part of his family used Schmidt and part of them used Smith here in America. I do not know how they chose which. His daughter, my Grandmother used Smith. Again, thank you so much.

William Richardson
I saw you had added two William Richardsons In Greenwood. One has no tombstone and the little boy had one. The little boy was the grand son of William S. and the son of Thomas James and Elizabeth Hunter Richardson. He died of pneumonia in the spring of 1889. I Thank you for posting this site as I have been looking for the grave site for William S.Richardson for several years. Williams wife Barbara is buried in Muncie IN.

William S. was my great grandfather. Fifteen years ago you helped me find information on my Hunter family of Etna.Now you have helped me find another missing family member.

Hello Diane,
Thank you for your recent suggestions. Do you have his death certificate to post? I would appreciate it. I recently found a letter my wife's grandmother wrote in 1945 to the Allegheny county coroner seeking information about her uncle Lee. That's how they found out he passed. We didn't know that he was married. Wow what a great find! Any additional information is always appreciated from you. Thanks, Glenn

George Milton Memorial #155820080

Hi Diane,

Michael here,

I have been researching the Richard Milton family from Oil City, Venango County.

It seems that the information that the death certificate & funeral home for this George are incorrect.

He is related to my research as the dates for his SS application match his DOB & Place of Birth match George Milton from my research. Correct parents are Richard Milton Find A Grave Memorial# 161473332 & Rosanna Simons Find A Grave Memorial# 161603985

I will be submitting links to his parents shortly.

Thanks so much in advance.

Michael Teed

RE: Etna families
You owe me nothing, filling requests has helped me to maintain my sanity. It's time for me to wind down and regroup. The people that come to mind straight away are of course Jacob Elsesser and his family including Salome, his mother. I believe his father died either in Philadelphia or on a trip to New Orleans. Are you aware that Jacob was partly responsible for the GAR statue in Greenwood? His name appears with the other committee members. I,m very interested in Jacob's daughter Elizabeth Caroline Elsesser Schultz as she seems to have disappeared. The Daniel Hieber family, in-laws of Jacob, Martin and George Seel Families and Conrad Sandrock Jacob's son-in-law. You can e-mail anything you desire with my thanks.
