RE: Transfers
I have not been in the cemetery for years. I found the list of burials in the McKeesport Library in about 1989. They were I believe in the old Edmundson Newsletters. I placed the list at the McKeesport Heritage Center. So that would be about the first time I was in the cemetery. I found my Calhoun graves. Think I was lucky to find one uncovered and had to remove dirt from the others.

As for which Edmundsons were removed from the Edmundson Cemetery I found the following in the McKeesport Versailles Cemetery

John Edmundson died Dec 11 1897
Single grave 1 range 2 seperate grave sec H
(Removed from Edmundson Cemetery

Cordelia wife of John d. Aug. 3 1905 int. 16721
(Removed from Edmundson Cemetery special grave 6 range2)

Nancy Calhoun Edmundson d.Dec 27 1862
single 4 range 1 (to be placed with Sarah Edmundson)

Sarah Edmundson d June 2 1895

John Edmundson d. Dec.2 1863
single 3 range 1 (to be placed with Sarah Edmundson)

Joseph Edmundson d. March 11 1859

William Edmundson Interest
I sent you a message on your email. I hope you get it. I am interested in learning about William Edmundson one of my GGrandfathers. Going to Ireland in April to find my family roots. What things should I see to walk in his footsteps.
Thank you,
Diane Bland

RE: Cyrus Edmundson
I understand the frustrations of distance. It was easy to make this mistake as there are really 3 different cemeteries that serve Home City -- Home City North; Home City South (Fairview) and this old one just called "Home". Anything else I can help you with, just let me know.

I have a strong suspicion that this entry #75969007 was wrongly identified with the "Home" cemetery, which is a very small, unused cemetery sw of Home City. It probably was from the "Home City Cemetery" which is a large, well-used cemetery a mile north of Home City. Cyrus and the rest of the Edmundsons are now buried in the Marysville Cemetery adjacent to the Schwarz/Wuester group, which was moved from the Home City Cemetery. I suspect that the Edmundsons were moved at the same time.

RE: Garth Edmundson
Yes, please use the photos on Find A Grave. My mother took lessons from Garth and his wife, Ann. I remember sitting in the room where the organ was located. It was a beautiful instrument. Ann had a concert grand in the dining room. She was my teacher for many years. New Castle is my hometown. Let me know when you go to PA. I live in CA or I would take the photos for you. I love visiting New Castle, but I cannot afford to travel at this time. How exciting for you!
