Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been into genealogy since 1983 when a family member contacted me for information. Since then it has been hobby that never ends, a puzzle incomplete. The earlier years were different when I sat in libraries and historical societies throughout the northeast USA and read thru the microfiche. I did photograph headstones, but back then only because it might have been different or pretty. "Find A Grave" is a great treasure.

Living in the historic Wyoming Valley of Northeast PA, there are many cemeteries that are old and need to be preserved or logged soon.
I plan to do my share, and pass it forward .......

Since I also photograph as I travel I add many who are not of my family. If you have a family connection with any of my entries, please feel free to ask for transfer...

I HAVE WALKED AND PHOTOGRAPHED OVER 1700 HEAD STONES AT WEST PITTSTON CEMETERY, LUZERNE CO., SO I CAN POSSIBLY OFFER LOCATION HELP. Also, completed photographing Eaton Cemetery, Mosier Cemetery and other small family burying grounds

My most recent project was helping to finish the transcribed and digitization of the record books from Pittston Cemetery, and working with the negative scanning project from the Greater Pittston Historical Society ( GPHS ). Also helping to transcribe the old record books from the City of Pittston.

West Pittston Cemetery
We have visited West Pittston Cemetery looking for Edmund & Jennie Touhill. You added two of their young children, Edmund and Howard Touhill. We could not locate their parents gravestones and wonder if they are buried in unmarked graves. Since you listed knowing West Pittston, I am wandering if you know the caretaker there to verify that they are in unmarked graves and possibly where. I copied a phone number down listed for a caretaker?? when we were there but the person who answers the phone always says the person in not home. So I gave up on trying to reach them. Any help or thoughts would be appreciated.

Do you happen to remember what cemetery you were in when you took this photo?

RE: Werner John Stucki Memorial# 74717375
I think he is part of my family. I thought he was cremated & his ashes scattered on the river. I must check with my family for sure. Thank you for listing this info.

Your Aunt and Uncle are now yours. I believe that family belongs with family.

Have a great day.

Hello sharleenp:
Thank you for posting the information about my grandfather, buried in West Pittston Cemetery. I think I visited that cemetery as a child over 50 years ago. I haven't been back since then but I'm hoping to make another visit soon. It must be a large cemetery and I certainly don't know my way around it. Can you give me any pointers on finding my grandfather's grave?
