Bio Photo I will transfer any entry I've made to your care- I don't care what your relationship or reason. I'm not related to any of my entries except a very few. My effort is documentation and finding the lost among the stones.

It might be helpful to others to cite the source of requested updates; But even that omission won't stop the update.
How to Request a TRANSFER
*Note: You must be logged in for this procedure to work:

1. Click on the "EDIT TAB" top right of the entry


3. Type the word "TRANSFER"

4. Send.

That gives me ALL the information I need to make the transfer.
Living in Northern Chester County, Pennsylvania,
"I See Dead People."

I haunt cemeteries for tombstone photos and follow up with obituaries if available at the Chester County Historical Society. Or Vice-Versa, I get the obit then find tombstone.
Let me know where I can help in Chester County, Pennsylvania

What does the phrase "natural causes" mean in an obituary? The answer is that all causes of death belong to one of three categories: violent, accidental, and natural. Death by "natural causes" does not mean the person died of "old age," it means the person was not killed in an accident or an act of violence. When an infant dies of a congenital heart problem, that's natural causes.

Many obituaries or death reports will include a specific cause of death, such as heart attack, lung cancer, etc., but often, they only state "natural causes," or it can be adduced from phrases like "no indication of foul play," "died peacefully in his sleep," etc. The older the deceased is, there's more of a presumption of natural causes. For example, a note like "no indication of foul play" is more likely to be found in the death report of someone in her 20s than someone in her 90s.

RE: William and Emma Powell
Dan, I don't manage those memorials. You should send the obits to Kimberly.

RE: Annie Dixon
Could be either Chester town or Chester county. Like you say, borders change over time. The county does borders their 1740 residence of Lancaster when their daughter Margaret married. But again, whether that is Lancaster town or Lancaster county isn't specified. She left the state after her marriage to Alexander McCoy and her parents didn't follow.

RE: Annie Dixon
Thank you, but no, that is the wrong century. The James and Ann Dixon I am looking for were both born in the 1700s and she likely died about 1806. He might have made it to 1800, but more likely died in the 1700s. I know both died in Chester, and since there are two graves together with those names without a picture or dates... I am hopeful a photo will help. A two hundred year old stone or even unmarked old grave, would make it likely this is them. But a new stone would be someone else's and I'd need to keep looking. Thanks again for checking my request.

(2 John Wesley Craley & Idella Sprenkle's daughter Idella, who died in 1904 as an infant
(3) John Wesley Craley & Idella Sprenkle's son Austin William Craley's daughter Idella, who married the Jackson.

RE: Richard Franklin Johnson Family
Don, How wonderful!! Thanks so much for all your help. Question, if a person is buried in the Oxford Cemetery and does not have a tombstone would they be in the Cemetery book?

Thanks for your most kind help.

RE: Audry Pyle
Dan, I'm sorry that you spent so much time in verifying my mistake the date of her death should be 17 June 1991, I do not know the place of her death.

Speaking of Cemetery books, do you have the Oxford Cemetery in the book. You say why do you ask. I have called the Cemetery and get a nice gentlemen that helped me last week. I just wonder if his book of the records have been transcribed. I'm looking to find out where Richard F. Johnson Born 1815 PA; Ancestry trees say he died 29 Aug 1885 Oxford, Chester, PA. Appreciated any help. He was on the 1880 and not on the 1900, his wife Mary Ann McClurg Johnson is buried in Oxford Cemetery.

Thanks for all your most kind help.

Thank you very much for posting the obituary. I have transcribed it in case some clown decides it should not be there LOL.

I like the addition!

Take care.

RE: Josiah Ashenfelder
I would be honored to be Joe's memorial care taker along with his wife, Ginny (#169544910). If you want, include their son-in-law, Don Lambert (47516424).

None of the family is interested, I'm sure. I grew up next to the Ashenfelders and they were like parents to me.

Thanks so much for offering, Don! I really appreciate it!
