Hi Doug,

Thank you so much for the GREAT photo & for taking the time to help me with my family quest. I hope you don't mind that I put a copy of your photo on the memorial page of Edmund's wife Jean, of course I gave you credit :)

Thank you again,

RE: Biedler/Elliott family
Hi Doug,

It's kind of late now. I asked in the summer, hoping for information before my trip to PA in late September. I did manage to visit the graves with Biedler/Elliott family members. I'd asked if you were related and wondered if you had further information on more deceased family members. Can't really remember from that far back which ones - likely the family at Chester and Kennett Square.

RE: Biedler/Elliott family
Hi Doug,

Are Eleanor "Ella" Biedler and her husband Jonathan D Elliott of PA your ancestors?

RE: Photo request
Very welcome, glad to be of some help :) I believe there were other Powell's there, did you want those as well? I don't have my gear with me as I am at work right now, but I'm pretty sure I took a few other pictures. The name Martha perhaps and another Norman and I think an Alphonse with a different last name? Sorry, I'm going by any of those names sound familiar?

Media Cemetery
Good afternoon. You posted a map of the Media Cemetery in Delaware Co, PA? On the map is not notation that the company was formed about 1856. Is the section "A" much older as I believe that this is the cemetery where my ancestor Thomas Forsythe is buried? - Scott

BU problem
I was never aware that BUs were such a problem either until I started visiting the Forums. For the longest time I thought that perhaps the problem was being exaggerated there.

As to motives, nobody is quite sure. As you mentioned in your SAC, it's such a great site and most folks come here to find where people are buried or to enter what they know--it just doesn't make sense that people try to enter their entire Family Tree, whether or not they know where people are buried.

The markings on the stone are for a masonic lodge probably local to the area.
