Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please Stop sending me EDITS seeking to change my memorials into parents of children or children of parents without first finding out who it is you are talking about and where your person is actually buried! If you need to add a memorial, then do so.

DUPLICATES - If my posting predates yours I will no longer take my memorials down. The only sure way to avoid duplicates is to do a search in the cemetery on the SURNAME alone before posting memorials for folks. That way you can see if they are there already.

PHOTOGRAPHS - I don't care what you do with photos I take. DO NOT ASK me to take my photos down because you have more stuff to to put on a memorial. Sorry, but I'm not falling for this gag again. I went and found the grave at my expense and took the shot. I'm under no obligation to remove my work just because you think your crap is better.

RE: Foxhills in 16/19
Bob, I do believe you looked for one of the Foxhill's a while back. Yes, Rutherford's are in lot next to Foxhill. I have a stone you probably sent that is not really readable. It is posted.
Mgt. Foxhill in 10/10 are posted the findings I found in 1999, Except that DeadBird found that Rutherford 16/21 stone, I would not have bothered any further. Jane

RE: Mary Elizabeth Wiley
Glad to be of help. A small bit compared to what you volunteer at Mt. Moriah. Deadbird is sending headstones to my posts and one was in Section 16 right next to my Foxhill gr grandparents 16/19. I've gotten all the names in the surrounding plots and posted to Find A Grave. Hopping he'll find one of mine.

Finding the obituary for Mary, (Mt. Moriah)I calculated that the added 21 days, makes a difference in her age. Sorry for the added edit. Jane

James Livingston (1863-1926)

Your Findagrave efforts are sincerely appreciated. When I asked you to disconnect James from those parents, it was because he had the same birth year as his parents, and that obviously wasn't correct.

There is no Pennsylvania death record for this man, so that is why I double checked with you. Since you say the birthdate of 1833 came from Irish records- just seemed to me like an error had been made. Now it says 1863. I wanted to be sure everything was right. By odd coincidence- 'Jane Livingston' also died in December 1926 (in case you were using a transcription of Mt. Moriah burials). They could easily have written James by mistake, or misread the record.

I see no other errors in the family line I added to and linked.

Hi Robert, could the death date you have posted for this memorial, be a "re-burial" date? Found a death certificate that indicates burial Ronaldson Cem., but not certain this is same person. Please advise, when you have time. Thanks.

Your memorial for Mr. Leatherberry is in the wrong Port Republic cemetery. It needs to be moved to Union Cemetery, which is on the north side of Main Street. The above cited memorial is currently in Methodist Union Cemetery aka Old Union Cemetery aka Smith's Meeting House, located on the south side of Main Street. This cemetery has not had an interment in nearly 200 years

Robert, thank you so much for transferring their memorials to me. I certainly hadn't expected you to do that! I just wanted them linked together. But, as they are my great-grandparents, I genuinely appreciate your kindness. Since they were fortunate enough to be in an area in Mt Moriah that has been cleared, I consider them to be lucky to have been found and remembered in such a wonderful way by a stranger, and even more lucky that I located them on F.a.G.

Their oldest child, my grandfather, was one of 12 children. They had at least 2 dozen grandchildren, and Lord knows how many dozen great-grands. Kind of sad that I'm the only one who looked for them, but I have you to thank for that. And Maria's parents and grandparents are in MM as well, so I'll make sure to link her to them.

Thanks so much for the wonderful work you do as a volunteer, especially traipsing around Mt. Moriah. I am glad to see that the volunteer group, Friends of Mt. Moriah, is doing such a phenomenal job at reclaiming this treasure.

Happy Hunting!
