RE: Memorial# 14204647 Jacob Hess
Hello. According to the article at
"While the work is being done on the cemetery, the building committee of the school board is going over plans for the new high school building..."
Apparently, the cemetery was moved from First & Center Sts. in the town of Bloomsburg to make room for the new school.
The photo of the "cemetery" you see on the Find-A-Grave memorials for the Old Lutheran Cemetery - aka the Old German Burial Ground - was taken and posted by another member but it shows the current location of the graves that were moved. They can be found at the back of the New Rosemont Cemetery in a section by themselves - well removed from the main cemetery. Hope this helps.

RE: Emerick

It is your memorial and you can do what you prefer. It is a 22 year old obit and survivor information is not compromised. I would transcribe it for you to copy and paste into the bio, but I don't type well and it would take a lot of time. The source information is in the caption. You can copy and paste it into the biography. That will alert Ancestry that a biography is available on the memorial. Some members object to obituary images and also refuse to transcribe the information into a biography. Some have deleted memorials and created new ones to get rid of images. Old obituaries are useful tools and I have found information in them that is not available on websites.--Storres

RE: Lola Aikeley McLeod

I have ongoing problems with my internet service provider and Internet Explorer. My edit is to add Thomas Gallagher 1893-1918 as first spouse. The system probably deleted the links to her parents resulting in the unknown. Her parents should remain the same. I was not certain about the first marriage to Thomas Gallagher until their marriage application appeared in a search.--Storres

RE: Dora Shed Bennett
Is it the new policy that when a duplicate is made, but was a transfer, neither you nor Lois can delete it? I thought the original creator could always delete a memorial they created, even if it was transferred, but Lois said she can't delete it. Did you have to go through Find A Grave to delete it? If so, I wasn't aware of that policy.

RE: Thomas B. Bennett
Did you check your edits? I'll go ahead and look at everything. Did you get my emails with the proof?
I'm going to transfer to you all the Bennett's I have as soon as I make sure they are all correct. I think I have some in Pleasant Ridge too that you might want. Let me know if there are any others. I am not related in the slightest! Pam

Never mind - I found their baptismal date. I don't know. So far, no death dates, though the parish records for the mid 1860's are very poor. I'll keep looking.

Hi Jan,
Can you tell me the year of their baptism again? I am updating these Excel files, and everything is a real mess right now.

Doane House
Remodeling a home and found a message from the contractors, Geo. Doane and E.H. Doane that appear to be ancestors of yours. There are 2 more contractors that worked with them as well. So glad there were pictures on the site. So neat to actually see who built this house in 1905! How can I send a private message so you can see the writing they left?

RE: Springdale photo requests
Look at the photo requests for Springdale, you can see those with a red "One Problem Reported" in the status column. On the left, underneath the name for the memorial is the requestor. You have four that no marker was found. You can withdraw your request.

Springdale photo requests
Hi Jan,
Would you be so kind as to consider removing your photo requests in Springdale where a volunteer has looked and found nothing and then filed a grief report? Probably half of the photo requests for Springdale have yielded no photo. Sure would be nice to clean up the list so we can review the new requests coming in!
I see where you've requested photos for "North Hill Division". Good luck, I spend a little bit of time last year in that Division. I believe it's the oldest division in Springdale and it looks it! The stones are in complete disarray, many topled over, with inscriptions lying face down. Others are so eroded they're illegible.
Someday I'll go back and work that division, in the meantime, there are still 31,000 more burials to document.

Thought I'd let you know that you have Harlie P. Townsend's great grandparents as George and Sarah. They were actually George and Clarissa Amanda [Bowling] Townsend.

Hi Jan - just looking at old emails. Did I send everything you wanted about the Kuntzes? It looks like I did send the baptismal record??? Was there something else? Karen
