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. 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.

Esther Long was my 5x Great Grandmother married to George Long she died in 1848 not 1818. Could you please fix it. It is also a duplicate. Thank You Barb

Hello there.

I found a duplicate that I created and have added the images to your memorial. I've deleted mine. I've also sent you edits to link the parents as they are all buried in the same plot together. I hope you'll accept the links. Cheers! :)

duplicate memorials
Diane, there appears to be duplicates in First Congregational Cemetery in Etna. Conrad M Sandrock and Konrad Martin Sandrock being one in the same. The other transfer I requested was supposed to be for Otto Schulz in First Congregational. It appears Caroline Elsesser Schulz was living with her sister in Natrona Heights 1930. Thanks
Regards, Mel

Memorial transfer request
Diane, I was wondering if you would transfer the following memorials relations to my 3x great-grandfather, Jacob Lorenz Elsesser #95832455. Thank you for your consideration #'s are (100607216), (101364333), (100657527) and (10473919). My #48799799. By the way, I'm still looking for another of his daughters, Elizabeth aroline (Elsesser) Schultz(sp) wife of Otto Schultz #104731919. Thought maybe you had something in your records. Thank you again.
Regards, Mel

John Elssesser
Diane I believe you are correct. Jacob Elsesser#95832455 served in Co. B 9th Pa Reserves 38th Pa Infantry from 1 May 1861 to 1 June 1864. buried in First Congregational in Etna. John Elsesser#127627282, Johann Daniel Elsesser#101364333 in first Congregational, and John D. Elsesser#84614300 are all the same person, being Jacob Elsesser's son, 1860-1901, making it impossible to have served during the Civil War. thanks Mel

John D Elsesser
Diane I talked to a guy at Mount Royal Cemetery,and he gave me a photo copy of plots and internments the latter being numerical order not an actual date.Copy shows he was the fourth person to be buried in the cemetery. Cemetry began in & around 1904. John D. died 1901 don't know if this is conclusive enough. thanks mel

Diane, I don't know if you have records of John D's burial, but his tombstone is located in Mount Royal Cemetery (Shaler Township) close to some of my other relatives. Photo in the Shepard Family Tree 2X. Thanks Mel
