Urdanivia children plot location
Joe, I couldn't thank you enough for the latitude and longitude information for the Urdanivia children's grave you have so selflessly provided. Best regards from Pinoy Pride.

Hanna F. Crone
Joe, I can't thank you enough for photographing and posting the tombstone for Hannah F. Crone. She is my husband's gg grandmother and part of an intriguing family story that I've been working to prove. Her husband never remarried and eventually moved to Virginia where his son Christian was stationed in the Navy. We didn't know where she was buried, nor her birth and death date (all solved via the tombstone). Although we've spent some time tromping through Fairview Cemetery, we never saw her. Of course we didn't know we were looking for her there. Again, thanks so much for taking the time to catalog the cemetery and post the information. Best Regards, Lynn

Mary Phillips Davies
I looked again at Mary Ann's birthdate. Although it doesn't correspond exactly to Mary Phillips Davies' death date of 1838, it seems more likely that Mary Ann is the daughter of Daniel's first wife and her death date is off a bit. More research needed.

Mary Phillips Davies
I have been studying this lady and discovered that she died in Wales in 1838. There is a marriage record for the marriage of Daniel Davies and Mary Jones 30 Aug 1841 at Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorganshire, Wales (where Daniel was born and married Mary Phillips in 1835). The dates and location make it likely that Mary Jones is his second wife who came to America with him, d in 1864, and is buried in Fairview Cemetery. Thus it seems that Mary Ann was probably her daughter and the two sons were born to Mary Phillips Davies. No epic proof, but lots of circumstantial evidence.

Thank you so much for the headstone pictures. I have a trip planned in October this year to visit Easton Pa. for the wedding of the granddaughter/niece of Frank & Margaret to my son. I had planned on finding Sacred Heart while there.
I appreciate it so much !

Thank You!!
Hi Joe,
Thank you so much for the photo you provided! I really appreciate it!

I have a quick question that you may be able to help me with...I noticed the grave is a bit faded, and that the nameplate is broken. Do you know who I could contact to get that fixed?

I cannot thank you enough for your image of Magdalena Foin Lanshe's stone. It is so meaningful for me to have an image of this as she is my 2x great grandmother and I live in California so I am unable to visit her final resting place.

I appreciate your time, effort and support through Find-A-Grave. Your volunteerism means the world to me. Thank you for helping make this website the wonderful tool it is.

With deepest gratitude, Magdalena's great, great, grandaughter,

RE: Morgan / Wentling
Good morning, I did not see the cenotaph for Edward, shame on me. The surname Wendling/Wentling is one I am very familiar with in researching names. This is a surname in my family. The "d" and "t" seems to be interchangeable. I did change the "d" to the "t" on my memorial to Edward since the other family members were using the "t" in the surname with a note on his memorial that the name sometimes shows up with both spellings. I believe the issue is that the "d" in the German language is sometimes pronounce as a "t". Thanks for your response.

Thank You, Thank You
I've been checking your progress at Sacred Heart hoping that you'd soon make it to the Richards--with the distinctive old "tree" wooden cross stones. And today, I was so pleased to find that you posted their memorials. Thanks.

I have jpg obituaries for Henry and Matilda from the old Allentown Democrat newspaper. I want to check that adding these would be in keeping with your desires. Would you be OK with these being added?

BTW, many years ago I visited this cemetery and took pics, but lost most with a digital glitch. (I do have a long shot of all the stones in a row.) Having your photos on Find-a-Grave is very much appreciated.

Best regards,

Amelia/Emilie Beitel Mathcett
On Emilie's father's will, he states "...among my children: Josiah, Adalina, Emilie, Henriette and Maria.."
So therefore I figured the father would know the most appropriate way to spell or say his daughters name. I had it different on my records until I saw his will.
Thanks for all you do for the Penn records.

RE: Anna Frantz #167720453
Joe, Thanks for your reply. I am confused though. On what basis did you put her in this cemetery? From what information? Thanks. Gene

Anna Frantz #167720453
Joe, Would you please consider transferring this site to me? This is my Great Grandmother. Curious, were the years of birth and death on a headstone? My records are one year off for both.

Hi Joe,
This is my great grandmother. Have been to the cemetery and have pictures of the headstone. She is buried with first hubby Joseph Dieber, and is listed as Dieber. Had a question, where did you find Kleinmürbisch, that you have listed on Find A Grave. I have where she was baptized, and it is nowhere near where she or her brother state where they were born. I so need a new clue.

RE: Find A Grave Correction: Melchor Horn
Thanks for the follow-through. Photos can't make it obvious from the photos when monuments are half-size .

Juvenile deaths would explain why we don't have Melchor or Mary in Harry Yohe Horn's (Jr or Sr.) genealogy. I know of a couple other cases in the Horn family where early losses were not logged either.

I have a lot of relatives interred in the area. All your efforts are certainly appreciated.

One more thing...
In adding Helen's burial place you'd kindly shared, I noticed you have also made a memorial for her, connecting her with her parents. I have also connected my memorial to her folks. While my memorial was made first, I did not know where she rested. If you would like me to remove mine, I am ok with that but would appreciate the chance to not lose the pictures of her and the bio I wrote, as she has no descendants that will memorialize her. Thanks for letting me know your thoughts.

For the nice stone picture and for letting me know where Helen Marie Dancs tests - both are much appreciated.

Can't thank you enough for finding the gravestone of my "uncle" Walter Karner in the Sacred Heart Cemetery in PA. You also added some changes to several Karner records - thanks again. You obviously enjoy helping others and I sincerely appreciate you for that! Keep up the good work!
