Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find A Grave's primary purpose is a graves registration website

If a listing or contribution corresponds with only the primary purpose, it has fulfilled its part of Find A Grave's mission and is not required to correspond with the secondary and tertiary purposes.

On all transfer requests, include your relationship to the deceased. I'll process them only if they fall within Find A Grave guidelines
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations.

This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Please state the exact relationship to the deceased when making a transfer request
And they are not part of my direct Pedigree line.

Anna Margretha Diedrich # 43974102
Dear RCM,
Sorry to bother you, but I cannot read the grave stone # 43974102, Anna Margretha Diedrich. Do you have a text of all words on the stone. It's OK that it's in German.

Can you please also move his wife, Mary, 41177202, to 181383312. Same problem as George.

Can you please move your photo from 41177183 to 181383262. The photo'd memorial is in the incorrect cem, as the photo is of Centerville Memorial Park, not the adjacent church.

Mother of Miriam I. Keckler Arendt
I wanted to give you a source for the correction I just sent. Although Miriam lists Abraham and Eliza Keckler as her parents when she married, it appears they were actually her grandparents who raised her. 1900 census lists her as Miriam I. Carey, granddaughter in Abraham's household. Then I found this in the following source:

Historical Society of Pennsylvania; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Collection Name: Historic Pennsylvania Church and Town Records; Reel: 671 (

Name: Miriam I Kechler
Baptism Age: 0
Event Type: Baptism
Birth Date: 19 Mar 1888 Illegitimate
Baptism Date: 4 Apr 1888
Baptism Place: Gettysburg, Adams, Pennsylvania, USA
Denomination: Lutheran
Organization Name: St James Evangelical Lutheran
Mother: Nettie (Carey)

So it appears Abraham and Eliza's daughter Janetta (Nettie) was the mother of Miriam, and she died within weeks of the baby's birth. Abraham and Eliza then raised Miriam.

RE: Carl Bolen
Yes, I agree with all info you've stated. However, I did find his Pa Death Cert. it indicates he was 'b. 27 Feb 1863 and d. 26 Dep 1929.' Hopefully the Pa Death Cert. informant knew Carl well enough to have the correct information. Thanks for taking the time to 'confirm' my findings. Gail

I had copied this memorial that you had posted with the pictures of the headstone and the baseplate engravings back on 08 Sep 2015. Today I go to find the memorial and none is found. Can you tell me what happened to it? Has it been merged with another?

Simon Peter Goodyear pic
Thank you for adding the new picture to Simon's memorial 53321839! Will you please also add it to Anna Langheine's memorial 53321856 and remove the picture currently attached? It is the wrong one.
Also attach it to their daughter Stella's memorial

Thanks so much!!
