RE: Burkes in Cresson
A listing of the burials in Union Cemetery, Cresson, on the Cambria County cemeteries website at

says it is a complete listing of all burials in Union Cemetery, Cresson, and it does not include the Burks.

the same website has a listing for Union Cemetery, Gallitzin, also does not include the Burks, but it is noted that the Gallitzin listing is not complete.

RE: Burkes in Cresson
Is there a way for you to contact the previous contributor and ask her to remove her memorial and offer her proof of the correct cemetery?
Since I have not seen the cemetery in question and you and she both have the same tombstone posted but have it located in two different cemeteries, I have no argument to offer the other poster that would be convincing.
Rather than have me pass messages, could you contact her?

RE: Aristide Giroux
Thank you so much for your response and for posting the information to FInd A Grave. I do live in Fairhaven and would absolutely love to photograph the stone(s). I just recently discovered this part of my family heritage and would appreciate any other information on this part of my tree.
Thanks again,
Kevin Mach

Aristide Giroux
Good morning,

I am looking for information on Aristide Giroux and his wife Marie Tremblay. I am thinking that there is not a stone for them hence the photo of the death certificate? Any help would be appreciated.

wrong name
I don't know how this can happen, but when I searched for Elizabeth Steadman Winn on Ancestry, another name comes up.
Don't know how to fix.

I usually recommend using "Unknown" instead of leaving the surname blank.

RE: Other Benton family members' gravestone photos
You are correct about the French-Canadian link!!
My great-great grandfather travelled south to Saint Louis with a fur-trapping group in the early 1800s and eventually married into a North American Indian family... the rest is history!
By the way, thank you for allowing me to download your lovely photos of my distant relatives... The Fleury line married into the Heaney line, which married into the McIntyre line... it is there that the McIntyre children started marrying into the Benton, Claar, Bancroft, Schliffler, Holland and Weaver families!
This really has become an addition for me!!

RE: Zion Lutheran - Hollidaysburg
I am so glad you are able to find markers so they can be corrected. Many of my entries are from the 1930 Adam Holliday Chapter DAR readings. As I entered them I tried to verify as many as I could from other sources, and I found the error level on those I could verify was about 90% ! I had the same problem when doing Old St. Mary's using the BCHS transcription. Nine out of every 10 entries that was not taken directly from a tombstone turned out to be in some other cemetery than Old St. Mary's...

Zion Lutheran - Hollidaysburg
Thank you for all the work on Zion! I did bits and pieces of it, but it was overwhelming. Paula worked on it and had the same experience. So the time you are putting in is much appreciated. I know it is hot, rough going on that hill too!

And thanks for catching the dupe of Rachel Whosits. :D

Sara & Charles Ashman @ Alto Rest
Hi Father,
Wanted to thank you for the photos on the Ashman memorials. I love having different angles/seasons/lighting etc on the stones! Just noticed them verifying an edit.

Sara Eggeson Ashman is my paternal Grandmother's sister.

Charles Ashman is my father's paternal Grandmother's nephew.

Truly appreciate all the help you have given me over the years!

Hi Albert,

I just want to let you know this man is my great uncle and I have his memorial on Find A Grave since 2013 here in Fall River, at Notre Dame Cemetery. Thanks for adding him to his wife's memorial which I didn't have but his is a duplicate.

Other Benton family members' gravestone photos
Sorry to keep bugging you about your photos... may I have your permission to download the other family members' gravestone photos? I didn't realize you had taken so many of Annie (McIntyre) Benton's children's gravestones!!!
Thank you once again.

Mary Wilt
Hi again Albert, after looking a little closer, I believe the photograph you took of Mary Wilt's stone is for a different Mary Wilt other than Mary the wife of Philip Wilt. Philip Wilt's wife Mary died in 1872. As you probably know, Wilt was a very common name around that area; would you mind removing that photo? I will have to research to see exactly which other Mary Wilt that photo more properly belongs to. Won't have much time to track that down this week though. Thanks so much, Michael Caldwell

Dear Father, I don't know whether I've told you my 'Newry trivia' or not. You know about the Lanzendorfer clan, but you may not know about my relationship to the Benton clan from the St. Pat's side.

There's a John Benton (whom I call 'Senior') near the gate, and another (whom I call 'Junior') near the top of the hill. Senior volunteered with the 125th near age 40, was wounded at Antetam & captured at Chancellorsville. When Junior came of age, he enlisted in the 205th.

These two men are my direct ancestors on my father's side. George Benton (also St Pat's) is Senior's brother and served in Co F, 76th.

Wednesday, June 8, beginning at 9 a.m., my Fairview Cemetery team will begin to replace a dozen (roughly) illegible headstones of War casualties on the 'Soldiers Circle.' We'll probably be there until at least 3 p.m.
If you have any business at Altoona Hospital that day please come visit me... ..and Altoona's sacrifice on the altar of freedom. Thank you, Don.

It is difficult to read the data. Please kindly transcribe the data on this tombstone as you see it. I am having issues with the last number. Is it a 4 or a 1?
Thank you kindly,
