RE: Charles T Swaney
Since we don't know if he was born in Ireland or Pennsylvania much less the county or town, I'd suggest changing the birthplace to "Unknown" so it doesn't mislead others.

Zella, Charles is my Great-Great-Grandfather so thank you for the photo of his headstone. I'd like to know from where the birth data was found, as it is internally conflicting.

County Clare is in the Province of Munster and is on the west side of Ireland abutting the Atlantic Ocean, while Dublin is in the Province of Leinster on the east side of Ireland abutting the Irish Sea.

Grandpa Charles couldn't have been born in both! I've also been told that he was born in Pennsylvania so that is another thing that I need to clarify.

Well thanks for offering. There are a few I am having trouble with. George Shirley #79233092
James Shirley #79212557 and Wesley Shirley #78805552. I've done and I've tried Google search. I cannot seem to find their obits or at least where they died. Two of those memorials are my sister, Delaine's, whom you've corresponded with as well. We'd be so happy to be able to complete these from that generation.

RE: Childrens' Home VC
Hello again! :)

Thank you for getting back to me. I appreciate your correspondence and the details those little ones. Yes, everybody deserves to be remembered. I'm glad you took the time to create that virtual cemetery. I'm sure others feel the same way. Cheers! :)

Your message,"Curious as to why you think Lewis is buried at St. Bernards? There is no marker there and he is not listed in the burial registry. Do you have his obituary by any chance? He MAY be there, but he just as easily could be at Holy Cross."

I have a death certificate showing the body sent to Akron, Ohio for burial. I have his parents names and they are both buried in St Bernard's. If my placement is incorrect, please let me know and I will move or delete him.

In trying to find where his wife is buried I came across her marriage to Albert A. Hilkert. For a real laugh, read his obituary. He was 29 years old with 35 grandchildren. Find A Grave# 130952926

Thanks for catching that for me.
I do try very hard to make sure I have done my "Homework" in researching what I add, but it's always good to know I have friends to help me out.
Lol, I don't know how the poor guy had 3 memorials total, but at least we brought it down to 2 now :)

Have a great day!!

FYI-the memorial is for an infant of Harvey Parry Shirley, I know this family well. The memorial owner is my younger sister Debbie (not as active as I am) and it is just as we said, my late mother took the photo but did not mark on the back which cemetery it is at. All is not lost, if I could easily find her negatives and see the other people's headstones, I can figure out which cemetery. Mom had several small boxes of negatives that I have sitting here and that is rather large project I'd like to work on but have not gotten to it yet. So that's why it's still unknown-glad to have found the photo, tho :)

RE: Elsa Shirley
Zella, can you give me the memorial number. It may be the photo was taken by my late mother and I may know know which cemetery she took photographed it. That's my initial thoughts. Let me see it and maybe I'll know more.

I did link to his father. That last I knew my distant grandmother had not been proven.

Do you now have proof?

Thank you

There is already a grave picture on the memorial posted by David Woody. I will post the obit there, however.

RE: Alpretta Howell photo
Found the memorial you are referring to...has a different spelling. There is another listing for Alphreta Shirley Howell, #78500532, which is the spelling used on both the marker and the obituary. All of the burial information is there, but certainly the other other has a lot more family information. In fact, there is so much other information I probably never even noticed that the location was missing. I would contact both posters and try to get the memorials merged.

Could you send me her memorial number. The only memorial I can find does not have a picture taken by me, and does have the cemetery information. It was NOT created by me, but was done with information I had posted elsewhere.

I realize this post was made four years ago, I am hoping I am reaching the right person who can be of help. I am not a relative of his but am very interested in his works in Pennsylvania as minister. When he left the pastorate in Hollidaysburg he came to my church in Middletown, Maryland in 1861 and left just a few months before the Civil War broke out in our community. He was our 17th pastor. I am on the archive committee of our church and gathering information on our pastors, both personal and ministerial accomplishments. We will be celebrating our 275th anniversary next year and our goal is to try to gather as much info on each of our pastors as we can. If you have a picture that would be wonderful. We thank you in advance for anytime that you may take. God bless.

Thank you, Zella, for the information about the grave of Andrew Smith, 208th Pennsylvania. Having two burial sites as described by the Pennsylvania Veterans' Burial Record makes things difficult!

Best wishes,
