RE: Grimes
Oh, yeah sorry I forgot to email you. I will do it from my laptop tonight.

I only came across the Grimes because I was adding some more obits and came across a child of the Grimes and of course my "sleuthing" gene kicked in. Lol

New C section of St. John
Hi, I haven't been able to find a map of just Section New C in St. John's cemetery.

I was talking with Calvary and they had some of the burials listed, but some were also mixed in with section C. They had burial cards they let me look at.

I was trying to go through the plots as I was taking pictures in C so maybe these "unknowns" could actually get a name to them.

I think all 3 of us need to get the burial cards and then go back through and see if we can get names for these unreadable stones.

I do so hate to see all those almost 900 people without stones.

Actually I think I have St. Johns only, but it is hard to tell.

RE: Corless
It's no problem.

I would rather have the cemetery correct as much as possible than have numbers by my name.

I do this to hopefully help a family find their relatives not for gaining as many numbers as I can.

We can figure this out :)

There was one Corless, Bartley, that was missed when you added them into St. John's. So, I switched him from St. Mary's to St. John's. He must have been on the same monument since I had in his bio all the people on the monument.

I found his obit and added it too. He was the son of James & Bridget Flannagan Corless.

But the rest I went ahead and deleted along with my Flannagan (or whatever the spelling was since I'm looking at the obit now)

RE: st.johns
I just went ahead and deleted the Corless' too

RE: st.johns
That's where I was getting confused on the Monahan's if she sent that link to you, because she hasn't contacted me yet.

But, I did find an snippet about her in the Altoona Tribune. She is listed as being buried in St. John's so since you have added her recently to St. John's I'll just delete mine for Emma Monahan. I will send you what I found from the paper.

That's also a problem for me about getting some stones that when I go home sometimes you can't remember for sure where they went or like I said before sometimes that "line" we were talking about can get blurred.

But, I know between the three of us we can fix it!

Let me know which other ones were sent out maybe I can find something on them too and correct these.

RE: st.johns
Hi, I didn't consider Philip Monahan in St. Mary's. I only thought that the two you sent me would be in the same cemetery. Which ever that was. Maybe Spaniel mentioned they were in St. Mary's.

John Koesbauer, Andrew Seidel and Marg Bender are on my map looking like they would be in St. Mary's and that was the "line" I meant you could make from John straight across to past the Bowman & Doyle vaults. That looks like it is the "line" for the cemeterys?

Let me know what you find! Have a great day!

RE: st.johns
Look again at the map you sent me. On the left are two vaults side by side in the "second" section. Those are the Bowman and Doyle vaults.

If you make the invisible line from the break in between those two hedges by the vaults and go straight across from there would be the "line" for the two cemeteries. But why did our ancestors have to do it that way!! Oh, well :)

Hope this helps maybe sent this to Spaniel as well. See what she thinks? We can figure this out.

RE: st.johns
Ok, I might have a better idea for the line between the two cemeteries. I had gone awhile back to the genealogical society and pieced a map together of St. Mary's and made it BIG so I could read it, LoL.

But I just checked some of the surnames on it and what I can see is the line goes from just above the Bowman and Doyle vaults across.

Where the John Koesbauer grave (12th street) straight across to he other fence where Andrew Seidel and Marg Bender are (10th street)

Does this make sense? I looked at the surnames and most of them are in St. Mary's and not found in St. John's.

My Greiner ancestors are not listed in St. John's, but are listed on this map and on findagrave in the St. Mary's cemetery.

I couldn't tell you exactly which ones we have entered that are St. John's vs St. Mary's by the map because sometimes it's a whole family plot or the person who bought the grave buried a family member instead and had themselves buried somewhere else. But alot I have looked at on my map are St. Mary's.

I think the two you sent me are not in separate cemeteries, but are in the same. I think this can be worked out though.

Added by cataholic4ever on Oct 05, 2015 10:45 AM

Are you along the pathway in the memorials you sent? I think if they are side by side they would be in the same cemetry side. Now back to front might have been different because there could be the invisible line separating the cemeteries. But unless we can find an original map it is going to be very hard to tell who goes where. I think I might have a copy?? Now that I think of it. I think it only has numbers though. I think St, Johns goes all the waydown to the little shed back by the "ledge" thatgoes down to the "newer" section of St. Marys. I will have to get back to you on this. Which other memorials did we overlap?

Thank you so very much for the Helsel photos and the cemetery information. This helped closed a large door in my grandmothers family tree. Lawrence was her first husband and died at the age of thirty three leaving her with three small children. My grandmother never spoke about him but a cousin told me she thought he was buried somewhere near Altoona. Bless you for your dedication and willingness to help others with Find A Grave.

Uncle Earl's bio consumed me for an entire Easter Sunday morning. You're treading all over BOTH SIDES of my family tree as you move around New St Pats in Newry.
When you 'bump into' Civil War John Benton in the lower right, he's a Grgrgr Gf on my father's side. HIS SON John, also Civil War, is nearer to the top of the hill on the right side. I've photographed both of those.
But I think you need to visit Olene's daughter, Eva my mother in Duncansville. I think she'd like to show you how her ten brothers (including many, many Marines) won a couple of wars.

RE: Annie Denny
I am not sure if her name is Loretto or Loretta? It was used the two different ways in the siblings obit. But, I will check to see if I can find it tomorrow.

I'm glad that I could find more information for Michael in the Cambria paper. It was just such a sad story for him to take care of her and then he got sick and died. But, it is nice to be able to "Tell their Stories".

RE: Annie Denny
Hi, I sent you her obit.

I found the brother Rev. J.G. Denny and asked for the person to link his memorial to his parents too.

So, hopefully this helps to get everyone linked together.

Thanks again for helping me link them and for putting up with my sac's.

Have a great day!

RE: Michael R. Denny
Hi, I will send you what I found. It seems that it is listed in two papers too. It looks like he took care of his wife who was sick with typhoid fever and he caught it and died. She lived through it and died in 1921. How sad.

Photos on 2 memorials
My name is Kate and I have been putting together a genealogy for my motherís ancestors. I have interspersed various photographs within the text to accent interesting facts about some ancestors. I plan to publish and print hard copy books for my immediate family and their children. I have included the following photos that you posted and I donít want to use them in my book without your explicit permission. I will include your credit with the photograph and Find A Grave in the citations.

Seth Pope Memorial# 8233926
Deborah Perry Pope Memorial# 8233908

Last week a friend of mine who works in the printing industry approached me with an offer to print and bind my book at no charge if I allow the printer to use the content in a sample print run of approximately 100 books. They would not be sold but instead would be distributed to demonstrate digital ink jet technology. I would like to accept this offer, however, I cannot do so without gaining your permission to use your posted photographs.

Would you please grant me permission to use your posted photographs, listed above, in my book.

Thank you for your consideration, please respond at your earliest opportunity.
