RE: Kurth @ StL Calvary
I am glad that I could help.

St Louis City and the County are pains! They each keep their own records before 1876/77 they were together. Then they split and now they are talking about rejoining. Ugh.

Happy New Year

I am sorry, but they are not marked. Please see the caption on photo for more lot information.

Thanks and Sorry

Mary Werwie
I copied and added Mary's marker photo. Updated the death date, but this should be redone after the funeral home adds the proper date tag. Let me know if you do this and I will delete this one. I attributed the original photo to the donor.

RE: Regan Family, Johnstown, Pa
Thanks for that information! I do not know anything about the names you mentioned though, sorry! I have a distant cousin who contacts me out of the blue now and then, who lives in Johnstown. I think his connection is Dennis Regan, another sibling of Jeremiah's.

Jeremiah Regan
I noted you left a candle burning on his page. Are you related? He was my grandfather (his children were adopted by Mary and her husband, making me a Rodgers, not a Regan).

RE: Joseph & Elizabetha Killmeyer
Yes, those dates are for Elizabeth. I realized too late that I didn't have a way to add Joseph. He was born in 1832 and dies in 1906. Thanks.

Hi Helen,
Thank you so much for updating the Hess memorials. All of your work, is greatly appreciated.

I briefly read what you had posted, the info on the death certificate may not be correct. I just thought I would let you know what I found and where the info was from.
I am a member of Daughters of the American Revolution. I recently learned that biographies are not accepted as a prove for an ancestor. They are helpful bits of info though.

The Hartzell Family in western PA
Hi, Helen. I got your recent message about Marcell and Martha Hartzell and their children. I noticed that you have come to a recent standstill with their daughter, Martha. Martha married George B Gray on 31 July 1934 in Wheeling, Ohio, West Virginia. Martha died on 6 July 1962 in Wheeling as well. She is buried in West Alexander Cemetery. You can find her marriage and death certificate at . I am currently waiting for my edit request to either be processed or for her memorial to be transferred to me. I, too, am part of the Hartzell family. Raymond Day Hartzell is my great-grandfather. I'm curious how your son-in-law is related. Thank you for the recent note; I have been meaning to add information to the Hartzell memorials for quite sometime, but I've been very busy. Thanks again!

RE: James McBride - Parents?
I will work on it tomorrow. I figure they are most likely cousins.

By the way Rhoda's parents are buried in the Prairie Cemetery and given he died first maybe she got to decide where they would be buried.

Maybe she just didn't like being close to her inlaws! who are buried in Harmony.

James McBride - Parents?
Hi Helen,

I am the owner of the Find A Grave memorial for the James Malcom McBride buried in the Prairie Cemetery with the same DOB & DOD who was married to Rhoda S. McCoy. You are the owner of the Find A Grave memorial for the James McBride buried in the Harmony Cemetery down the road.

Today a photo request was filled for my memorial which shows clearly now that these were two different fellows. My research suggests that mine is a child of William McBride and Nancy Shaw.

So where we are at the moment is that both of our James McBride Find A Grave memorials are linked into the same parents. I think you will agree that this is highly unlikely.

Your memorial is: Find A Grave Memorial# 62537274
My memorial is: Find A Grave Memorial# 135118785

Anything you might be able to offer that would help us figure out which of these fellows is their son would be most helpful.

These are the kinds of puzzles that make this such an interesting retirement hobby .. don't you think!

Have a great day.

Hello Helen,
Thank you very much for the Reis headstone photos that you added on July 11, 2014, at St. Martins Cemetery.

RE: Martha Hartzell
I believe that this Martha and John are my 3rd great-grandparents, but I'm having a hard time proving this theory, so I haven't actually put them in my family tree as of yet. I contacted you to see if you happened to have any additional information. Thanks for the quick reply though! Since you're son in law has the last name in his family, I suggest the West Finley Cemetery if his family is from around the Greene County and Washington County, Pennsylvania, area. There a lot of Hartzells buried there. Thanks again, Chelsea

Martha Hartzell
Hi. I recently noticed that you have left a flower on Martha Hartzell's memorial page in Slonaker Cemetery. I was wondering if you are a descendant of her and John's?

No problem. I'll probably have more updates as I'm working on a project dealing with the families of St. Columba's Church. I can get into more detail later.

You can use whatever you need. I was just at the orthopedic surgeon today. After 16 months he isn't happy with how things are going and is sending me for another MRI. He's hoping that I don't have to have a total knee replacement.

Kutschbach Headstone
Thank you very much for the photos of Elizabeth (Schneider) Kutschbach's headstone. Although there does not appear to be headstones for other Kutschbachs at St Martin's, I have found references where several Kutschbachs were buried there. Two of her daughters married Mahr and Wuenstel.It appears that the Wuenstel' were very involved at St Martins.

Through DNA, I am linked to Elizabeth through her husband, Fred(erick)August Kutschbach. I am trying to find a survivor of these families to see what they may know of the family roots in Germany.

Again, THANK YOU very much for your support.

PS I lived in Pittsburgh (Library) 1972-75. I wish I had known my links then as there appear to have been family there at that time.

Saint Martin's Cemetery
Hi, I have a question. I noticed that you have added photos to Saint Martin's Cemetery in Allegheny County, PA. Could you tell me if this is located on Elkton Street in Pittsburgh. I am trying to find this cemetery and can't figure out where it is. Thanks for any help! Barbara B.

RE: Ferrence Family
Hi there,

Unfortunately, I don't have any photos of my grandfather's siblings. I wish I did. You did remind me of something - Theresa's obituary - and I posted it this evening.

Google has an online (free) newspaper search. I've already searched and searched, but then again sometimes you find nuggets on a second or third search that you didn't find initially.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 74899685
Thanks for the consideration and offer to add info to Theresa Laniewski's memorial. Please link her parents to the memorial. Her father was Stephen Feranec, Sr. Find A Grave Memorial# 124784005. Her mother was Ylona Feranec Find A Grave Memorial# 124784037. At some point the name evolved from Feranec to Ferrence. Once her parents' memorials are linked, her siblings will show up on her memorial automatically. I'm still researching her brothers Dominec Feranec and Michael Ferrence. Thanks. :)
