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: Alma Murphy

Thanks a million for the pics and the encouraging remarks.

Here is the deal with my grandmother Alma Murphy Urwiler, 118622337. The death cert must be right that Nichols is correct for Alma's mothers maiden name. Alma Urwiler's mother, Alma J Urwiler (Nichols) 45028626, was married 2X. 1st marriage to William Kennedy Urwiler, 151613315. William was 60 yrs old when he married Alma J. More power to him. They had two children, William Ellwood Urwiler and Alma Susanna Murphy (Urwiler), my grandmother.

Alma's 2nd marriage was to Robert Edwin Dripps. I have not found his grave. They had one child, Robert Edwin Dripps. I updated/submitted on line updates for these.

Although my grandmother Alma Murphy was deceased before I was born, I knew and visited with Uncle Robert Dripps and Aunt Ellen "Mickey" often.

Wow, this stuff is complicated. Like a huge 10000 piece puzzle.

Take good care and thanks again for the pics

Re: Joe Carmody

RE: Joe & Elizabeth Frisco
Thanks Dan for the tombstone photo and your suggestions. I am adding your note to Elizabeth's page. Should I also put that this stone is in the Travis lot?

RE: John Kitchen
These 3 documents you have provided have created more questions for me. I am missing a daughter somewhere. The census's have Jane Martin married to Charles Griffith, Malinda married to Joseph Nichols, Sarah married to Jessie Adams, Rachel died in 1885, Sons William apparently died young and might be the person buried between the two. I sent a message to the cemetery to ask if they had any information. And John.

Cant find who married Alfred Yerkes and Charles Grant. Don't have enough daughters. Weird Weird Weird.

Do you know if the gravestones from Phoenixville Mennonite still exist somewhere?

Catherine Latshaw #157008678
Thanks for adding the maiden name for Catherine. I recently found a cemetery transcript from 1922 for the Phoenixville Mennonite Cemetery. I'm not sure who compiled this information. My preliminary findings indicate that Catherine was 90 years old at the time of death. Jacob and Catherine's first child was born in 1768, so the age of 40 is improbable. I'm currently working on a spreadsheet combining information found in the Mennonite Historians of Eastern Pennsylvania Cemetery Database and the recently-found transcript. All these documents are prone to error, as you know, and a lot of the information is not readily verifiable. If you're interested, I can send you this document when it's complete.

Your Efforts are Appreciated

Thank you for locating and sending my father's obituary. Since I was stationed in England at the time of his death, and my mother passed just four months later, I never saw this in print (and neglected to obtain a copy later).

I have posted this information on my father's memorial page; thank you again for your kindness.
