Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have had the genealogy 'bug' for many, many years and used the resources of 'Find A Grave' many, many times. I have now retired (mostly) to the coffee shop and followed my much better half to the Lock Haven, PA area from Oklahoma as part of the next great adventure of our lives.

I wanted to give back some of what I have received from 'Find A Grave' so I signed up as a photo volunteer and have been severely bitten by that bug. I find I really enjoy the small, older and out of the way cemeteries.

My family interests are Lombard (Lumbard), Darby, Meers, Zinn, Churchill, Sensor and applicable branches.

Please feel free to use my photos in any of your genealogical endeavors.

If I have memorialized your family member, I will be glad to transfer.

James Bair/Baer
Hi Dave
Since you seem to have taken many photos at Highland, I am wondering do you have one for a James Bair/Baer born abt 1849 and died in 1897. He was in the Civil War and obit says buried at Highland.
I found TWO different veteran's burial cards on, both for him, but with different spellings for each - James Bair and James Baer. I'm sure they are for the same person, but not sure which is the correct spelling or what the actual headstone reads (unless there are 2 different headstones for the same person). Could you please check your photo records and see if you have him listed for Soldier's Circle burial as his obituary states, to see if you have him in there?
THANKS so much!

Frances S. Burries
Hi Dave,

Just discovered your memorial for my relative John Burries at Highland Cemetery: Find A Grave Memorial# 167265474.

I had created one for him in 2015 but had wrong spelling on last name.
Could you please add your photos to my memorial Find A Grave Memorial# 140910704.

I also created one for his son Charles Find A Grave Memorial# 140917240. Perhaps you could merge your memorial 167265490 with mine as well.

Finally Beth created memorial for Frances S. Burries in 2014: Find A Grave Memorial# 136008526. Please add your photos from 167265474 of the gravestone.

Thanks Dave and Happy new Year.

RE: John Williamson, Salladasburg
Hello Dave,
I am reviewing my messages and I am not sure I ever responded to you.
Yes, I do believe this is the correct John Williamson.
Thank you so much for the headstone photo. I really do appreciate it.

RE: Headstone 67314282 Thomas Crawford
Find A Grave combined the duplicate graves and took the headstone photos with them, but now there are two of your same photo on the new combined page. You might want to delete one since they are the same headstone photo.

Headstone 147783029
Hi Dave
There is a big mix up with two Thomas C Crawfords.
The one you have added a headstone to is a wrong grave that needs deleted. It is a duplicate to this Thomas C and was created AFTER the other one. They also have him connected to the wrong parents, but that is a whole other can of worms.
This is the grave you added his headstone to Find A Grave NO. 147783029
It should to to his persons 67314282 (and his veteran’s burial card even shows he had two stones, one government and one family)

Antonio Perri 167206081
I figured out the problem. There were two Antonio Perri’s.
One died 1911 one died 1910. The 1911 one (yours), his death certificate is listed under Antonio Peny on
This ANTONIO PERRI has the headstone/monument.
I created a new grave for him, can you delete the headstone from the other Antonio Perri and add it to this one.

The Clinton Democrat, Lock Haven, PA, Thur., Nov. 30, 1911.
Antonio Perri.
Antonio Perry, one of the best known of the Italian residents of the First ward, died suddenly Tuesday at 5 o’clock at his home on East Walnut street, near the wire works. He was about town Monday, as usual, and did not complain of feeling ill. Next morning at 5 o’clock he awakened his wife and told her he could not get his breath. In a few minutes, he died in his wife’s arms. Antonio was formerly employed by the Pennsylvania Railroad company, but in recent years he was employed at different times digging sewer and water trenches for the city. He was an industrious, jolly and kind hearted son of Italy, and his many friends will be sorry to hear of his death. He was aged about 57 years, and is survived by his wife, six children, one of whom is married, and five are at home. He also leaves one brother, who lived at Pottsville.

The Express, Lock Haven, PA, Fri., Nov. 27, 1931.
Antonio Perri, 55, died suddenly at his home, 418 East Walnut Street.


The Express, Lock Haven, PA, Mon., Nov. 21, 1910.
Two Others Severely Inured.
Antonio Perri, aged 18, an Italian who had been in this country for about six months, met a tragic death in a fire at Wetham on Saturday evening at 11:30 o’clock, and two of his countrymen are so badly burned that they are not expected to survive.
The trio lived in a small frame house at Wetham and all were sleeping at the time. A trackwalker on the Pennsylvania railroad noticed flames issuing from their home and he rushed there to awaken the inmates. Finding the door locked, he battered it down, and two of the men succeeded in getting out alive, but with burns that will likely prove serious. Perri, however, was left to his fate, as he was asleep on the second floor, and being overcome by smoke was burned almost beyond recognition. His two companions were removed to the Renovo hospital for treatment. It is thought that the fire started from a defective flue.
Undertaker E. B. Waters, of this city, went to Wetham this morning and found the charred body of Perri in the basement of the burned structure. The unfortunate man was a cousin of the man who met a like fate at Castanea when a house was burned there about a year ago.
Deceased is survived by his mother, who resided in Italy, two sisters, and one brother, of this city. Undertaker Waters prepared the body for burial, which will be made in St. Agnes cemetery, this city. The time of the funeral has not been decided upon.

The Renovo Record, Sat. Nov. 19, 1910.
Italian Burned to Death at Wetham.
On Saturday night last, Antonio Perri, an Italian boy aged 18 years, was burned to death at Wetham, when the house in which he lived was set on fire by a defective flue and burned to the ground. A trackwalker on P.R.R. discovered the fire and aroused the inmates. Three men were in the house. Perri was burned to death. One of his companions escaped injury and the other is in the Renovo Hospital, badly burned about the face and hands.
Perri’s remains were interred in St. Agnes cemetery at Lock Haven.

The Express, Lock Haven, PA, Fri., Nov. 21, 1930.
In the burning of a small frame house at Wetham Antonio Perri, aged 18, met a tragic death in being trapped by the flames. Two companions were so badly burned before they got out that they are not expected to recover. They were taken to the Renovo Hospital.

Antonio Perri 167206081
It doesnt make sense, there isnt a 2nd Antonio Perri in any census (I thought maybe a son of theirs). I will try to find an obituary for him to see if its different than that death certificate. All I can think is, a son, or they didnt speak any English, so someone who put the information on the death certificate could have been wrong?
