Bio Photo "Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard, but always near; still loved, still missed and very dear."

When I create a memorial, I try to locate additional information, such as the death certificate and obituary. I add these to the memorials to assist those that are doing family research. Please keep in mind that these are not always accurate or reliable and are added simply as my way of trying to help those who are researching.

When sending edits, please use the appropriate tabs as well as provide a source of information. Guessing or estimating a year of birth from a census is neither proof or guaranteed accurate, and will not be added to memorials. In cases when the year of birth is not known, I leave it up to the individual researcher to make that determination and add that information to their own research records.

If I have created a memorial for your family member that you would like transferred to your care, please send a message using the "suggest an edit tab" requesting the transfer with your relationship to that person. If I am not related or have no connection to that person I will gladly make the transfer.

Some of the names I am researching include: Quinn, Garrah, McGuire, Callery, Duffy, Kelly, Kulengosky (and it's variations), Krischunas, Merritt, Moody, Cooke, Robinson, Henderson, Andrews, Russell, Polk and Poston.

Dear Merritt,

I am Daniel Kenney's great great granddaughter. For years I have been hunting for information on him. I am so grateful that you posted those two newspaper articles about the Cuyler Mine Collapse in Ravens Run,PA. I have never seen them before.

I'd appreciate any hints that you can give me on how to hunt more effectively and any advice on how I could find the names of family survivors, particularly spouse and children.

And once again, thank you for going above and beyond to provide extra info.

Debby D.

I would like to know what information you may have about Patterson Hamilton's parents? Thank you for taking the time in helping others with their search for family.

This is my great grandfather. Would you be able to provide me with a photo of the grave or additional information? I was at the cemetery many years ago and it was overgrown and condemned. I wasn't able to find the grave.
Many thanks!!!

Hello, my name is Bonnie May and I noticed you have some Haggerty relatives of mine. I wanted to let you know that John Henry and William C. Haggerty are brothers. There parents were John and Lydia (Taylor) Haggerty. This might help.

John Haggerty Father 13131916 Lydia M. (Taylor) Haggerty Mother 143316088 and wife of John Haggerty daughter Charles Taylor and Annetta Strausser.

William C. is also the brother of John Henry Haggerty and Daniel. If you link him to his parents it should bring the whole family together.

Please make these additions Thank you, Bonnie L. May
