William Barnhart 1816 1886
Hi Lyle!
I was hoping you could help me or send me in the right direction re: William Barnhart 1816 1886
He is the father of John Barnhart Find A Grave # 91581408
who you were kind enough to put on Find A Grave. I have been looking for Williams Parents and thought his obit would be the place to go. Could you help me find the obit? Thanks so much, Tammy

You said you didn't know the date of one of his marriage so listed it the day of the application. PA has always had a 3 day waiting period so it would have been at least 3 days from getting the application

Find a Grave Changing For the Worse
Print out any memorials you want to save. They're now changing the website the same awful way they changed "classic" ancstry family tree website.

Melanie Godding Gore
It's hard to read Melanie's death date from the picture shown. It doesn't seem to be 1871 as her name does NOT appear on the 1870 census. Instead Emily Gore appears along with her sister Sarah Akins. I would appreciate confirmation of a death date.

Thank you.

Albert L. Every
Hi Lyle,

My ancestor's memorial, Albert L. Every Find A Grave#98860324, seems to be in conflict with itself.

It says he died in 1863 and it says he served in the Civil War from 1864 to 1865. But the service record has a last name of Evory and so does the headstone (red) one that is pictured. Grey headstone has the Every and 1863.

Can you help me figure this out? How can a dead man fight in a war?

RE: Lena A O'Connor
No need for me to keep it either, Lyle. I have added obit and transferred memorial back to you. Thank you. It is so much easier for me this way. Daryl

Fay Huston Morley
Good morning,

I was wondering if the Morley family line might be related to you?

I have been researching this line since it connects to my "DREW" family and I would like to validate some information you have posted, since it conflicts with some that I have about Fay.

If someone else provided you the posted information, I would very much like to contact them, if possible.

Thank you for your consideration.

Canfield from LeRaysville
Good day. I saw you say you were familiar with this family and I was trying to get a confirmation of a 1st name if possible. Rilla Canfield, my great grandmother from the LeRaysville family b.1876 d. 1952, is often listed as Amerilla in censuses but her headstone and marriage certificate says Rilla. Any idea on this one? Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for all your effort
Lyle, I wanted to thank you on this Memorial Day for all the hard work you've put into photographing and posting memorials from Terrytown cemetery. When I first started using Find-A-Grave, so much that was there had not had grave photos attached. My 6th great-grandfather & founder of the village of Terrytown & I thank you.

Jim Conboy
Ruth Sanderson
Hi, I believe we have correspond before. My name is Jim Conboy. Ruth Sanderson is my Great Great Grandmother. In your memorial for her you list her year of death as 1828. All of our records indicate 1838, and since her last child Peter Sanderson was born in 1830 as listed in the memorial the date of date, 1828 would not appear to be correct. That being said the photo of her marker does appear to be 1828. It has been years since I have been there I wonder if you could check it when you have an opportunity. Jim

Thank you for taking the time to photograph her marker. It has helped to prove that she is at this cemetery instead of another in the same town. It is greatly appreciated!
