Bio and Links
Born and grew up in Hillsdale PA. Retired USN with 20 years. I love photography so please don't mind me if I add pictures for a "more scenic" or "more complete" picture of headstones / cemeteries.

If all you have done is create a memorial and did no research to find out who the person was, please don't get upset if I have and ask you to edit a memorial. Preserving and documenting the deceased so they are not forgotten is what I enjoy doing.

** Remember that a LOT of the online databases prior to 2000 are NOT always correct and until you've WALKED the cemetery and have the picture to prove it - don't trust what you read from someone that hasn't.

Feel free to borrow pictures, I only ask that you give credit where it's due. If anyone would like possession of a memorial, I will be more than glad to hand them over - provided you are related!

I have seen your name on a number of memorials for relatives. I want to thank you for your work and contributions. My family is a long way from Pennsylvania and would not likely be able to visit the area and pay our respects. Having memorials and photos on Find A Grave makes it a lot easier.

Thanks again,

Peter Fyock Family
I added Catherine Fox's name to Peter's bio. You wouldn't have any info about Malinda R. "Linnie" Fyock or Irene L. Fyock who married Edward Gaston. I couldn't find them listed anywhere but I don't have very good research tools. I appreciate all you have done, the photos and info are awesome!

Margaret Hosie-Leslie
Jan A, Thank you so kindly for the photos of Margaret Hosie-Leslie and responding to my inquiry. There should be several "Leslie's" at Mount Hermon Cemetery since this is where the Leslie's settled from Scotland. Very grateful and thank you again - Janet Sullivan-Lowry, Gulfport, FL USA

RE: Old Fairview Cemetery
I wish I did have a layout of Old Fairview. After having visited the cemetery last September (2011), I had planned to try to locate one before we visit PA again.

I checked at the Indiana Historical Society and they didn't have anything in their files. Rairigh Funeral Home has been around a long time and that name pops up in a lot of old obituaries. I would certainly check with them. I was going to stop there but it was raining the two times we passed it and I didn't get by that way again.

One more thought. The organization or individuals who put flags on the veterans' gravesites each year must have some sort of site/plot plan to work from.

Bless your heart for your efforts. I am glad to hear from you and so sorry I am of no help. You have a lot of hard work ahead of you. When we finally found the cemetery, I was both disheartened and elated, as well. It is a peaceful place and deserves to be cared for.

Good luck, I'm looking forward to visiting there again.
