Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in reading tombstones and found I really like going to cemeteries. When I found "Find A Grave" I decided to enter our family and friends so others will be able to find them without going to the cemetery.

Please REMEMBER I do this in my FREE time out of respect for the families. If mistakes are made, BE KIND and remember this isn't a paying JOB.

We are here to help each other, and it gives me pleasure to know I have helped someone. Thank you for caring about the family I also care about so deeply.

IT FLIES WITH THE LAST BREATH OF EACH SOLDIER WHO DIED PROTECTING IT.

RE: Martino & Angelina Croce
You are very welcome. I went to school with an Alex Croce, I wonder if these are his ancesters. In front of Martino and Angelina is a Florence Croce O'Brien and her husband Earl. I created memorial pages for them both and added pictures... They are in the same plot as Martino and Angelina... I'm assuming from the dates, that Florence is their daughter. Have a great day!

Hi Lynda. Do you think John is buried with Antonio? John's Draft Registration is on Family Search.

Angelina Croce
Hi Lynda, Angelina Croce IS buried with Martino in Eglington Cemetery. She died on February 3, 1981 of Heart Disease. Martino and Angelina are buried in Section G, Lot 42 and I'm hoping to fulfill your photo request in the next few days.

Saint John's #2 cemetery - Pottsville PA
Hi Lynda

Please be aware that any death certificate, obituary or document you have saying a person was buried in St. John's #2 means they are buried in YORKVILLE which is a different cemetery and a different location than what Find A Grave says.

The Pottsville PA cemetery information at Find A Grave is a mess. The cemetery they have as St John's #2 at N.Centre and Clinton streets is actually Saint Patrick's #3.

How did this happen? Apparently, Find A Grave doesn't check to verify cemeteries that people create. I believe somebody created a Saint John's #2 and it snowballed from there. I think it's foolish of Find A Grave to allow people to create cemeteries when they can't find what they are looking for. Folks often don't know the area they are dabbling with and that a cemetery they can't find is actually on the list but is known as another name. That is what probably happened.

St. John's #2 is aka the YORKVILLE cemetery and is also called Saint John the Baptist Roman Catholic Cemetery. Find A Grave says that Yorkville is aka St. John's #3 and that's wrong

St. John's #3 is the now abandoned cemetery at 8th and Pierce streets in Pottsville. Find A Grave calls that St. John's #1

Saint John's #1 was behind the church and is now a parking lot. Those who were interred there were moved to Calvary cemetery in Mount Carbon

It's a serious problem and Find A Grave don't seem to really care as they have ignored all 3 of my attempts to get it corrected. I finally said screw it.

All I have written is what I was told at the Schuylkill County Historical Society and one of the ladies who helped me was a church record keeper at Saint John the Baptist in Pottsville for many years.

FWIW, I found all 11 of my people who were said to be buried at St John's #2 in the cemetery at 20th and Mahantonga streets and that is Yorkville.

Best Wishes
