You are quite welcome. Through marriage, William would be my great uncle. Jane Rebecca "Janie" (Everhart) Keesecker was my grandfather's sister. Am still looking for an OBIT for her, but without any luck as yet...Thanks for your memorial post...Bess Jr.

RE: Peter Napoleon Henry
Thank you for your quick reply. Yes, I would love to have a copy of Peter Napoleon Henry's death certificate. You may send it to my private email which I will email to you.
I am not sure about this cemetery location. As I said, in the Bennett Cemetery we visited 11 members of my husband's Henry Family were buried in the front row beginning at the far left (facing the cemetery).
It was Irving C. Henry, Ella R. Henry, Lilly Henry, Ruth Henry, Charles Henry, Luther Henry, Peter Napoleon Henry, and Arminta F. Henry.
Standing out in front of the first row is:
Two small attached stones with 2 yr old twins Herbert Henry & Percy Henry, then the final one - Mildred Henry. I have photos of all these tombstones and also photos of the entire graveyard.
Did you visit the Cemetery and see the burial place of Peter N. Henry? How did you obtain his death certificate?

Peter Napoleon Henry
Memorial #140993189 located in Bennett Cemetery - I have a question as to the location of this family graveyard as this person was my husband's great-grandfather. We visited this cemetery once and it was located on Route 326 between Flintstone, MD, and Chaneysville, PA; however, this cemetery is apparently located in Bedford Co., PA. I am confused because the cemetery looks identical to the pictures I took at the time we visited there. But there is only one memorial for anyone with the last name of HENRY,while I have pictures of tombstones for 11 people with the last name of HENRY buried in Bennett Cemetery. From what I was told, it was the Bennett Farm where my husband's grandfather's family lived and worked and many of them were buried there. Can you tell me the exact location of this cemetery so that I can verify that it is the correct one? I would be able to add additional memorials for those named Henry who are buried there, as well as a tombstone photo for Peter Napoleon Henry. Thank you for your help.

Memorials being deleted

I have seen a few, my own memorials being deleted. I know at one point, there were no Memorials showing up for some of my family members. I don't know if it was at the time when Ancestry, was acquiring Find-A-Grave, but old memorials were NOT showing up when doing searches.

I have had a Memorial deleted for my maternal aunt, Carol Ruby Nobilese, 1925-1961 buried in Mount Airy Cemetery, Natrona Heights. And my grandmother's brother Arthur E. Black and his wife Aunt Laura.

I just got a message for me to delete my memorial for my Aunt's husband, Mervin "Smitty" Smith. Also buried in Mount Airy Cemetery.

But that's OK, if some people are so desperate for big numbers, let them. Many people NOW, grab their coffee and newspaper and head for the computer. It doesn't matter that the deceased, has NOT even been buried yet! THESE are the people, who give a bad name to many other's before them. I thank those who went out into overgrown cemeteries and documented graves, and in places, many wouldn't consider doing.

I would like to THANK YOU DEB, for all the work that you have done and shared and that I have included in my McQuown part, of my family tree.

Paula C. Smith, nee Fenn
