Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started researching my husband's family several years ago when we "inherited" all the photos, newspaper clippings, wedding invitations, etc. that his grandmother had kept. I didn't want to throw it all out because it was a lifetime of memories and keepsakes so I began to organize it on a genealogy database. Then I was "hooked"!

I accidently stumbled onto my cousin's posting on a message board while I was searching for information on MY family and this thing just took on a life of it's own.

I volunteered to take photos for Find-a-Grave after I requested and received some for my postings. It was so exciting to see the stones that I thought it would be nice to reciprocate. I also think I have a "sixth sense" or the deceased just "call to me" because since I started taking photos, I've been to cemeteries that I've never been to and I just seem to be able to walk right up to the grave! I've done it almost every time!

If I have posted something incorrectly or if I have posted something you feel is inappropriate, please email me or leave a message and I will correct it.

I am not related to any of the postings for Mifflin County, PA so I will gladly transfer memorials to a family member, no matter how distant. PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB AT THE MEMORIAL TO MAKE THE TRANSFER REQUEST. It's much easier that way and all the necessary information is there.

Any photos I post here are free to be used by anyone. If you do not want me to use your photos, please do not claim my requests.

Lewistown St. John's Cemetery
Thanks Mona for all the information. Thought you might know this off the top of your head, since you do so much work related to the cemeteries in the area. Appreciate all your time researching this for me. I haven't been able to find where Christian Gro is buried and thought that he may have been laid to rest there. Guess I'll have to do more digging, as it were. Thanks again, have a wonderful weekend. Lavelle

German Evangelical Lutheran Church
Hi Mona, Found a document that mentions the German Evangelical Lutheran "Zion's" Church being built on the south side of West Third St. in Lewistown. They were also to have a cemetery there. Do you know anything about this? What it would be called today? If it's still in existence? The men involved with this endeavor were: Peacock Major, Andrew Keiser, John Ort, Christian Gro and Isaac Spangler.
Thank you and hope you have a nice Memorial Day weekend.

RE: Inez Hummel Wertz
Yes, great minds think alike :) .... I think I may have written you a note that I found nothing.... my one thought was that her sister is Ruth "H" ... Maybe you can make a note on her memorial, but take it out of header for her...
Thanks so Much,
L

Hello Mona,
You are such a treasure.... I know I have told you this before, but a truth can be told more than once ;)
Thank you for allowing me to care for their memorials.
Blessings,

I added her correct birthdate per your edit. The edit was declined because it wanted to delete her locations of b/d per NCDC. This appears to be a flaw in the system. I have seen this before.
You have been really great at sending correct edits. I didn't want you to think i was declining this one.

John W MORGAN #173910221
Hello, I am a descendent of the Morgan family. In researching the John Morgan family we found a discrepancy. All records show his middle initial as being. "J" and not "W". Could you please advise where you found the "W" ? We have almost all of the family records. At no point has the " W" appeared.
Thanks in advance.
