Bio Photo DO NOT SEND ME EXCERPTS FROM DEATH CERTIFICATES. iF YOU ARE GOING TO TAKE THE TIME TO COPY AND PASTE THE INFORMATION JUST PUT THE DEATH CERTIFICATE ON THE MEMORIAL. i DELETE THOSE MESSAGES.


I am researching the different branches of my family tree. Maternal Rose, Kuhns, Drylie, Muse, & Silvis. Paternal any descendants or ancestors Of Christian & Charlotte King and Isaac/Isaiah and Emma Conover & John and Rebecca Wallace. I have traced some of these lines back to England, Germany, Scotland, Ireland as far back as 1410. I became a grave hunter when a family story led me on a search for the grave of a child who was born in 1884 and died in 1888 between census records, the church where he was baptized burned losing all records, there was not mandatory birth registration so there was no proof he ever existed. I have now been involved in a tombstone project photographing entire cemeteries in my area. My friend Franny and I have photographed 154 cemeteries in Allegheny, Fayette, Washington and Westmoreland Counties in Pennsylvania however getting them all uploaded to Find A Grave has proven to be a very long and slow process so if anyone out there is looking for someone who could be buried in this area please don't be afraid to ask it is possible one of us already has a photo. For anyone out there doing the same thing--- THANK YOU.

It never ceases to amaze me that people will just create a cemetery with out checking to see if it is already up. If I took a picture in Cemetery A. but there is paperwork saying burial in Cemetery B. I go with Cemetery A. where there is a tombstone the family has paid for. As for government documentation we all know the government never makes mistakes.

MY MEMORIALS ARE MADE FROM INFORMATION ON THE TOMBSTONES I PHOTOGRAPH. I HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING IF THE TOMBSTONE IS ACCURATE. IF YOU SEND ME A CORRECTION THAT CONFLICTS WITH THE TOMBSTONE INFORMATION PLEASE SEND ME A COPY OF THE SOURCE YOU USED TO SEND THE CORRECTION THANK YOU

Contact for St. Marys Byzantine Cemetery?
Kathi: Thank you and your other researchers for their hard work. I noticed St. Marys Byzantine Cemetery in Westmoreland County PA is 98% photographed. You submitted a picture for George Kanchy (b. 1893, d. 1938).

My maternal grandmother is buried in the same cemetery, but has no headstone. Is there any way to contact someone about placing a stone? I did take pictures of tombstones on both sides of the plot location identified by my mother in early 2000's.

Do you or your friends have contact information for caretaker of St. Marys Byzantine Cemetery?

My email is not listed on FindAGrave. Is there a way for me to contact you through personal email?

RE: death certificate
The findagrave # for Wladyslaw Rutkowski is 110456050. The Pennsylvania Death Certificate is 110233 for William Rutkosky (name is William in 1900 Census). Death date Nov. 23, 1925. The birthdate shows as Apr. 28, 1877 (instead of 1867 (the 1900 Census shows his birth about 1870). His wife's name was Catherine and he had a daughter Gladys.
