Austin cemetery
We are heading up to look for this cemetery and the directions on the cemetery site say SW cvorner Mud St, & Halifax & Sheldon road. On google maps I can find the intersection of Mud & Halifax. nIf we go to that intersection is the cemetery obvious? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

RE: Memorial for Charles Music
Thanks for deleting the duplicate. If you want you could ask find-a-grave to transfer the earlier memorial to you.

RE: Emma Drucilla Austin Colvin
Hi James,

This is really cool. G.Uncle Lou was the brother of my paternal grandmother Anna Shiffer Colvin Keats. We called her Nonnie. Her brothers Alvin ( (Alvy) and Fred called her "Sal" for short.

Is there an email address I can contact you at as I have some additional info and questions but I prefer not to post it publicly?

My email is

This is really neat to learn about the shared history of our families.

Best, Judi Keats

Hi James,

How did you come across a photo of Emma?
Are you related to her?
She was married to my Grandmothers brother.

Thanks so much,
Judi Keats

Clara Austin (?)/Elizabeth Colvin

I noticed you maintain pages for quite a few Austins in Luzerne, PA. I'm trying to track down information on my great grandmother's family. Her name was actually Daisy Mae Richards; her father was Horace P. Richards. According to the 1880 Census, it looks like he might have married a Clara (Clarra?) Austin. I have also found evidence that her mother might have been an Elizabeth Colvin. Daisy had a brother called Jacob and a sister called Lottie. Does any of these match any of your records? Thanks in advance for any help provided!

Thank you for the info re Cynthia which I added. If you want to add any of her siblings, please do. I am no relation. I visited the cem & used the photos to add memorials but some were unreadable. Charlotte

RE: Leonard Delano Austin
Hi James,
I transferred Leonard and Isabelle Austin to you. I know you will take good care of their memorials. :) Please don't create new memorials if one already exists. Find A Grave would rather you didn't, and sometimes the new ones with all that info you've added will get deleted. Also, it's not necessary to put Mrs. in the memorial.

Hope you don't mind my suggestions. I wish someone had advised me about memorials when I first began entering them. I had to go back and redo many of them, because I started out entering them incorrectly. So - my advice is from experience - just hoping to save you from extra work. :)

I have news articles on the Austins - will send them when I locate them.
