|Ed Fincke||Death Certificates|
Hi Charlene ,
I subscribe to Ancestry a paid service which posts the free public document DCs. I'm sure you can find a way to access them for free by talking with others , like the Facebook Allegheny County group or other local groups. I enjoy the convenience of Ancestry , a small luxury .
I paid the County records folks $4 , and waited 2 weeks to get my Grand dads several years ago . I found that it , and many others , have irregularities and errors , so don't be suprised .
United Cemetery seems to have lost their record books , but you may find other cemeteries still have some , to compare and contrast data with DCs .
If you like , I can transfer the Pfunds to you .
Warm regards Ed

OK, it's been added to John's memorial. I don't manage Catherine's.

Hi there again. I created a memorial for this one and I always do a search before creating a memorial and this name did not show up. Today, I did a search and there it was, lol. Sometimes I think there is a glitch in the system, lol.
I deleted mine and posted the image to your memorial. I also sent you a few edits for the memorial as well. Cheers! :)

Hello there. Hope this message finds you in good health and spirits.
Well, I finally got to go and search for William's marker and behold, underneath a bit of growth and roots was William's marker right next to Emma's grave. Going to Mount Royal on a Saturday was a spare of the moment thing, lol.
A friend of mine and I were out and about and I asked if we could stop by this section of the cemetery. I didn't have my brush or anything else other than my camera. I found some sturdy twigs and started poking to see if I felt anything hard and sure enough this is how I found William thanks to your tip. I posted an image of his and Emma's marker together, I updated William's information, too. When I'm out that way again, I'll get a better photo that shows the inscription, "Father." His marker doesn't show the middle initial "F."
I also posted his location (section that he and the family are located in) and also added the GPS location if you're interested. If you click the GPS location, when the Google map comes up, to the bottom right on the map, click "Satellite" and you'll get a better view, a satellite view of where they are located.
I thought I'd contact you and let you know. I was hoping to perhaps over time add GPS location of all the Marzolfs that are buried in Mount Royal (the one's that I know of, lol). I've been slowing doing this for other memorials in Mount Royal as well. It all takes time, lol.
The weather has warmed up and now I am out and about more than I was during the winter months.
Take care and hope to hear from you soon! Cheers!

Hello there. Thank you for your kind message and the helpful hint, lol. I will surely go back and check. I will wait until the snow subsides. Thank you for your information and for the tip on how to possibly find him. Come to think of it, I think Emma's marker was covered with grass and I cleaned it up to reveal what you see in the photo (I usually forget to take a before photo, lol). The second photo I took was in the fall of course, you can see the contrast in colors of the grass. That tree shed so much needles, too, lol. I will check to the left and right side of her marker. I'll let you know what my findings were. Cheers my fellow findagraver! :)

I do not know how Joseph C Marzolf relates. He is enumerated in 1940 as a 5 year old with his aunt and uncle (surname Littman).
There is a Joseph Marzolf also in Pittsburgh in 1940 as divorced, perhaps he is the father. This man is enumerated with his mother, Emma.
There is a 1934 Pgh Directory listing for Joseph and Helen Marzolf...same address as for the divorced Joseph in 1940.
A 1930 census lists Joseph A Marzolf as the adopted son of Charles and Emma Marzolf.

Unfortunately, I am not related to this family. I've just entered a number of memorials over the years.
|Riann||RE: Webb family at Union Dale|
As far as I know I am not related to these Webbs. When I go to Union Dale to "dig up" my relatives, I usually spend an additional half hour or so taking headstone photos, then add them and their info to Findagrave, usually a few days later.
The office should be able to help you, their records are excellent. If you can't get to the office, they will mail records on someone for a few dollars. Sometimes there is genealogical gold in these records, like the plot maps - additional relatives buried without headstones in the same plot, maiden or middle names, other records they have may show cause of death or occupations, sometimes country of origin, etc.
If you find additional Webbs, and get the division, section, range and plot numbers, (this is a huge cemetery and you need all four of those letters and numbers to locate anyone) and put in photo requests, I can probably get photos of any stones....the office, unlike many cemeteries, can also tell you if headstones were put on a grave, again, their records are excellent, if they say there is no stone, there never was. Let me know if you would like these memorials transferred to you.
