I have now typed the obituary in the bio section, including acknowledgment that you provided it, as well as have processed the edits you sent, so please delete the photo of the obituary at your convenience. Thank you again.

The got her obit from the Lancaster Public Library. Sometimes I use Lancaster Historical Society as well.

Thank you for the edit on Wilhelmina.

I'm not fond of searching the Scandinavian & Nordic names because of all the adaptations, but then add terrible handwriting and faulty transcriptions...and there's your nightmare!

Thanks again for your help.

Willard Oplinger
Memorial # 72002605 for Peter Forney
I wonder if you have an email for David Forney who supplied into and photos for this memorial. I notice that Peter's daughter, Barbara, married Christian Oblinger who is the son of my forefather, Claus Oplinger. I think the Forney family and the Oppliger families in Switzerland were connected through marriage, because a Nicolaus Oppliger married a daughter of a Barbara Farni. I hope David might be able to help me prove that.

Many thanks,

Willard Oplinger

Hi Dana, thanks for the photo I'm not sure if it is a Typo or not frankly. I'd guess having the stone match the memorial is appropriate. Thanks for getting the photo.

RE: Persis M. (Marti) Kroutil (memorial #135109549)
I am sure she is, but give me some time to figure out which section she is buried in. That is as close as I will have. The cemetery runs us out if they catch us photographing stones, so they are not helpful. Will let you know what I find in my records.

Dana, Thank you for the obituary for Muscoe Fretwell, I have added it to his memorial. It saddens me when someone takes their life. Thank you for work you do in Find A Grave.

RE: Annie (Devine) Slabach (memorial # 60599707)
Good. Glad you got it figured out. The obit I saw was for Annie Solenberger Slabach but I got the wrong one. Two Annie Slabachs in the same cemetery that died the same year! We need each other to keep things straight!

RE: Beatrice T. Buchanan
Thank you for merging and I know exactly what you are talking about. It happens more than we know and there may be more of it as people leave out the place of burial in their obituaries. Then when the photo of the stone is put on as a separate new entry, we have a duplicate.
Some just fall thru the cracks.
Good work on your part. I appreciate it.

I sent you Jean Doherty's reply. Are you going to change religion on his memorial?
