Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired high school math teacher and have been doing geneaology for almost 30 years with extensive research on my extended family. I have traced some lines back to the early 1600's with almost all lines into the 1700's. My family is all from either the Pfalz in Germany or from the counties of Carmarthenshire, Glamorganshire, Breconshire and Monmouthshire in Wales, and Gloucestershire in England. All of my lines settled in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The vast majority of my family is buried in Pittston Avenue Cemetery, Abington Hills Cemetery and Washburn Street Cemetery. Although many of my submissions are those of family members and family friends, many more are cemeteries that I have walked and recorded or graves near those which were photo requests. Sometimes I just walk cemeteries to record what is there. Even the best kept cemeteries have stones that are eroding and decaying. If we don't record this information that is there, it may disappear forever, as so many stones have.

I am not territorial. I post photos and information for everyone to share. I don't understand those who feel that they "own" information in a cemetery that is clearly there for to see. We all live in different places. How great it is to be able to share what is close to our homes with people from all over who can never visit a cemetery in person. Feel free to use any family photos for your personal use. It is not necessary to give me the credit. Just don't use them for profit. I abhor people who profit from the stolen work of others.

Although I welcome any corrections that you may find on my submissions and look forward to hearing from any family members or anyone else who is just plain interested, please do not contact me if you are not willing to leave your name. I don't deal with anonymous or someone hiding behind another name. I will happily transfer ownership of any page to any family members who politely ask, but please do not involve me in any family squabbles. I do this to help others and for fun. Let's keep it fun. If you send me obituaries, please include the newspaper name, date, and page number. Without that information, I will not add the obituary.

Anna Mazzanti
I've updated Anna's memorial with date and location of birth if you don't already have them.

I'd also like to understand your interest in Anna, because, well, Mazzanti, and I don't find many researching that family.

There is also Price and Davis, yet more family lines I seem to share with you (although mine settled in Wilkes-Barre).

I had sent you an email last night and we could continue this conservation that way.

RE: East Benton Cemetery

Sorry your photo of the cemetery is correct. It is the ones above that make no sense.

East Benton Cemetery photo you took

I was out looking for this cemetery today and the coordinates that this points to do not match the photos of the cemetery. I walked the entire site. Could you help me locate this for future reference. I recently found some older Mattesons that were buried there but I need better directions on this.

Mabel C Frederick Keiper
Hi Tom,

Could you please tell me how you arrived at the part of the note you included on her memorial page: "Daughter of William and Mary Ashley Frederick."?

I have the death certificates of siblings of a Mabel Frederick where other siblings were the informants and claimed William Frederick and Mary Ashley as the parents. Two died childless in old/middle age, and Mabel just seemed to vanish after the 1910 census. This is the first nibble of someone who may be my Mabel Frederick . . . wow!

Toles Stones

Just letting you know that I added a lot of pictures of the Toles I found yesterday at this site. I missed a few.

Brrokside Cemetery/ Halbert
Sorry this took so long, I think I had written it down and was sidetracked (or had a brain fart!). Yes, Minnie Halbert #60577575, the the same person as Minnie Halbert Kilsby #60577790. Halbert being the maiden name. Thanks, it is a duplicate.
