RE: Headstone Photo
You're certainly welcomed, Mark! This cemetery is well cared for, and I met the very nice, volunteer keepers while there...have never seen so many old markers being repaired elsewhere.

RE: Etta Lutz
Thanks Mark. I am familiar with the trees, as I also have one. I looked at all 6 that come up on a search, and couldn't find a valid source. Although interestingly one shows Find-A-Grave. No way to tell what is picked up by hint (in this case the date) and what is hand written in or picked off other trees (location). Do you have access to any that might be private and give more info? Maybe those you know are closely related may have an obit they would share with you? Sure would like to be able to post more information for her.

RE: Etta Lutz
Thanks for quick response. I agree there are most likely numerous trees that have Mount Holly -- the problem in that when adding hints to an ancestry tree, if the SSI shaky leaf is added, the "last residence" on that record fills in as the place of death. Unfortunately whoever programmed that at ancestry did not understand what the record was. So, of those 4 trees that show Mt Holly, my guess is that you will see SSI as the source, and/or some were just copied and not researched from another tree. As noted in my bio, I cannot use trees as a source, this being just one of the reasons. I'll continue to look around for something more concrete, but timing is too late for death certs, and newspapers for that time generally are not online. If you can come up with something more, please let me know! Thanks!

Etta Lutz
Hi again - please let me know your source of death location of Mt. Holly for Etta. I have updated the dates as you suggested. If you are using the Social Security Index for location, that may not be correct as it is the last residence, but not necessarily place of death. Thanks.

Clara Lutz edit
I received your edit on Clara Lutz, and in verifying the information I found her death certificate that shows she actually died in 1940, not 1936 as the gravestone shows. I added the certificate to the memorial to prove the engraving error.

Wrex Boyd
I would be happy to try to get a better picture, but we will have to wait for fall. There are peonies planted between the headstones of the 4-5 Boyds who are buried in a row. To get to Wrex's headstone I had to push the peonies back and position my feet to keep them back while I took the picture. This is also why his tombstone has the dark, mildewed appearance. It is perpetually covered by peonies.

When the peonies die back in the fall, I can get a somewhat better picture, but to improve the legibility of the engraving would take cleaning the stone. In my Cemetery Explorers group, they caution that cleaning a stone can cause more harm than good especially as there is no water source at the Thurman Cemetery to thoroughly rinse the cleaning solution.

I will try again in late September or October.

Brenneman edits
Thanks for suggesting edits on Melchoir and Adaline Brenneman. I have verified and updated as much as possible that you sent, but cannot verify Melchoir being born in Cumberland County, nor that he was known as "Sr." in any records. Please let me know the sources for this info so I can verify and update. Thanks!
