Bio and Links
Bio Photo Originally from Westmoreland Cty PA. Hixson, Fry(e), Stape, Schmucker, Heil, Rumbaugh, Procyk and Lauffer are some of my family names. Although I research my family names I also continue to research those folks in the once established Old German Cemetery in Greensburg PA. If you have any info regarding this cemetery please get in touch!
Also want to mention that I did alot of grave recoring in the New England area several years ago and recently I have been getting alot of inquires regarding those entries. My sole purpose back then was to simply get the names out there so those folks could once again be recognized and remembered. I do not live in that area which makes it impossible for me to go out and research those graves further. If you would like a transfer, please just let me know. Best of luck to all!

Rev Steck and His Wife

Hi Kim, wonderful work you have done! However, there are duplicates of Michael John Steck and his wife Catherine/Catharine. Would it be possible to merge them?

RE: Transfer Elsie Lieder
Hi Kim,
Elsie Lieder is part of my extended LIEDER family in Salem. She is not a close relative. I just thought since I have most of the LIEDER memorials in Salem that perhaps you might want to transfer her to me. But since she is your aunt, I can understand you keeping her memorial. I have Elsie's obituary. If you don't already have it, would you like me to send you a copy?

Transfer Elsie Lieder
Hi Kim,
Wondering if you would want to transfer Elsie Lieder at Grandview Cemetery in Salem, Ohio to me. I am originally from Salem and have almost all of the Lieders at Grandview. I have Elsie's obituary which I will upload.

Hello, we believe my great-great grandma would be either Elizabeth Hannah or Hannah Elizabeth Fry/Frye. Westmoreland, Fayette, Mercer, or surrounding counties. She married James White.

memorial 34727352
Hello, We are tracing my husband's side through Lucy Baker Lane and noticed you have some amazing pictures of her parent and grandparents headstones. We were wondering if you would allow us to use your pictures in our family tree. Please know that as fellow Find A Grave volunteers unless asked otherwise we always cite the photographer and Find A Grave as our source for any pictures we're allowed to use. We want other to know who truly deserves the thanks. Thank you so much for considering our request. S

Mary G Baker 33033776
Greetings, I am trying to track down the grave of the first wife of George Washington Baker 24066198(b: 1840). According to family records her name was Mary Regelman or Riggleman b:12/28/1843 d:6/23/1872. The curious thing is that Mary G. Baker's death date is the same. Do you recall anything about this person? How confident are you of the 1810 DOB? Thanks in advance, Paul (originally from Westmoreland and a Baker descendent)

Sarah McCormick 50788439
Hello Kimberlie, I tried to send a message from your contributor site, today but it was rejected. Today January 1, 2016 I sent an email to the address given in the edit section of your contributor page.
It was a bio for my gr-gr-gr grandmother Sarah McCormick Memorial #50788439.
I sent a bio for her granddaughter Sarah McCormick 50788521 in August and re-submitted in October, but it has not been added yet.
I would appreciate it if you would double check their numbers before adding the memorials so not to mix the two.
Let me know if you did not receive the above bio. Thank you

Old German Cemetery
I liked your timeline for the old german cemetery. Just wanted to add a bit to it. I remember as a child in the early to mid 70's there was quite a lot of rain one year. So much in fact that the hillside behind the old cemetery began to erode. Euclid avenue runs right along behind. There was quite a lot of wood (obviously from caskets, you could see them hanging out of the ground at the top of the hill) and bones that were washing down the steep bank headed right toward euclid avenue.

There was an aweful amount of fear involved at the time. It was well known that some of the folks buried there had been victims of epidemics. The fear was that whatever caused the original epidemic may still be able to cause another epidemic. The fear was so great that the A & P and Kroger grocery stores and Sun Drug store that used the parking lot that cemetery had been paved over for, hardly had any customers. It was very strange passing there and not seeing all the cars. We were even told while riding past, to put our hands over our mouths, "just in case" .

The horrible situation was also compounded by a scandal that broke out about why were there still remains entombed there in the first place. It was originally stated that they had removed the bodies (as you said) to the county home grounds. Apparently the money had been paid out, but it was then obvious that the whole job hadnt been done. No one was ever held responsible for wrong doing.

As some scandals happen, some other event took it from the headlines and nothng was ever done to investigate why these poor souls were paved over instead of getting a decent and respectful interment. They simply removed the "offending and upsetting" caskets and bones, regraded the hill and the matter was done.

Im just very grateful to my great grandparents for relocating our relatives to Hillview and Union cemeteries.

Sarah McCormick 50788439
Hi Kimberlie, I wonder if you received my request for a transfer of Sarah McCormick? I have several things to add and it is much easier to do from the bio sections than thru this edit box.The McCormicks are my relatives, so I have much information on this cemetery, Made a trip in 1989 and 1992. I took photos and included them in a book published in 2001.
Now, I am trying to get the memorials complete on Find A Grave, so that I can link our families. Will transfer back when I finish adding. Will be leaving soon for a short vacation and would like to begin work on this. Will appreciate a reply. Louise
