Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello,
I found F-A-G in 2013 when my husband and myself began building our family tree.
While gathering information we noticed that so many of their memorials were incomplete and not linked.
I started this account to bring our family members together in a way that gives personal character and builds family history for those searching.
Our goal is to add, update, link and give personal attention to those whom we have loved lost and perhaps never knew but somehow they made it possible for our state of being.
Thank you all for putting so much of your time and effort into making our history come alive. It is like finding the life of our loved one's to honor instead of a grave.
We are ever so grateful to those of you who allow us to bring our family's together, which could not happen without your beginning memorials.

If you would like me to edit info (I am capable of making mistakes) or add a bio please use the edit button at the top of their memorial page, makes it easier. Feel free to add photo's or take what info you want to fulfill your needs, after all this is your family and F-A-G too.
I am not about number's and don't mind a transfer if your relationship to that person is closer than our's. I believe especially main family line should be kept together under one roof. Please specify your relationship and don't forget your member # when requesting.

Have A Great Life!!!

RE: Harrietta Yenser
Good Morning, I took a better picture of Harrietta Yenser for you. She is not buried with her husband Levi and is in an area of single burials and babies. According to the lot ownership records there is no owner for this plot. Levi is buried in the GAR plots by the flagpole & cannons (see Cemetery website for pictures) This ground was purchased by the E.B. Young GAR post for the burial of Civil War Veterans (No Spouses). Here is a list of all burials close to Harrietta, I hope this helps.

RE: Harrietta Yenser
Hi Chris,
I have been shooting a lot of pictures in this cemetery, but I don't remember being in the section where Harrietta is buried. Maybe I am forgetful or her location is incorrect. Here is all the cemetery info on the Yensers in UWE. Levi is buried in the GAR plots by the Flagpole and Cannons. Harrietta has her age listed so you can subtract to get her birth date.
WE0945.01 x Yenser Harrietta 31 Mar 1899 60y 3m 1d wife of Levi Yenser, Mother
WE0228.02 x Yenser Levi 18 Aug 1829 20 Jul 1894 GAR Plot, Private Co. 'I' 167th Regt Drafted Milita

Hi Chris,
I have transferred this memorial to you so you can add whatever family information you wish. I, like you only hold these memorials in safe keeping for their family. Thank you for also doing this for the right reason. Hope to get a better photo someday.

Irene Scorey Esser
I'm interested in your listing of Irene Esser as the wife of Clarence C Jenkins (1899-1939). I list his wife as Lillian Mary Stillwell (1902-1990). She can be found as his wife on the 1930 census and on his death certificate. Where does Irene come in? Was she a first wife?

Oaklawn and St. Mary's butt up against one another. Your best bet for Oaklawn is to call there is no on site person. If you go to there is a map that you can down load.
St. Mary's right next door go in and bear to the right follow the road to the office/chapel they are very helpful if they are not getting ready for a service

Transfer of Augusta Esser
Hi Chris,
Thanks for your kind remarks. I'm glad I was able to help. I've transferred Augusta Esser to you. Please let me know if there are any others you want. You might want to get a subscription to, since there is a lot of mention of the Esser family in the Wilkes-Barre papers.

John Esser
Hi Chris,
I got your message about John and Agnes Esser. I found a lot of information which I posted to their memorials. Apparently John was married twice, his first wife being Anthony's mother. His father was Anthony Esser and his mother was Anna Maria Joachim.
