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.

Rev. lloyd Knight
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,

Sorry for the delay but wanted to thank you for taking the time to locate and photograph the memorial for me, it is greatly appreciated. Would like to ask that if you happen to be at Coitsville Cemetery in the future if you could take a photo of the dedication plaque that is in front of his marker. I am working on a WWII project and this would be of great interest. Also would like to ask your permission to use the photos you took for the project I am working on, I hope you do not mind, please let me know. Thanks again for your time and efforts in fulfilling my request, it is volunteers such as yourself that make this such a great resource and site, Cheers!!

RE: Weiland Memorial
Herman and Albertina are in Section 25, Lot 36. William and Bertha are directly in front of them, so they are likely in Section 25, Lot 36 also. I added the photo for William and Bertha.

I added the Smith for her maiden name, but I don't like to take away a middle initial from a stone until I know 100% what the middle name is. Would you by chance have her obit or death cert??

Have a great day!

Weiland Memorial
Zella - I took photos of Herman And Albertina Weiland. In front of their headstones was a headstone for William and Bertha Weiland. No memorial. If this is of interest to you I will attach photos if you create the memorial.

According to various sources, John Croes Bloomfield died on 16 February 1913. The date on the stone is probably the date of his interment in Glendale Cemetery.

Hello, Zella,

Re John C. Bloomfield (John Croes Bloomfield), one of my great-grand-uncles : he died in 1913, not 1918.

I realize it is often hard to distinguish between a 3 and an 8 on a gravestone.

One more correction
Ruth Randolph Flowers first husband was Oswell Collar by whom she had two children. I haven't been able to trace what happened to Oswell Collar yet.

Eliza Randolph Cleveland's siblings
I am listing the full progeny of William and Rachael(Johnston) Randolph's family that include Eliza as follows:

*Phebe Randolph Bell, b. 1827. Unnamed son buried in Glendale Cemetery burial #578 age 1 mo 2 day.
*Mary Ann Randolph Fike b. April 1828, d. 11 Sept 1900 in Garvanza, California
*Ruth Randolph (Oswell)Flowers b.1829 in Stark Co., Ohio, d. 26 Oct 1865
*William Randolph b. 1831, d. 1865 New Orleans, La. and buried there. Death from illness contracted while in the Army during the Civil War.
*Henry T. Randolph b. December 1833, d. 6 June 1870 of Tuberculosis possibly contracted during Civil War service- though his father also died of the disease so service may only have exacerbated the already latent disease).
*Eliza Randolph Cleveland, Find A Grave Memorial# 124473220
*John (possibly Jonathan-his grandfather's name) Randolph, b. 1840 in Akron, Summit Co., Ohio, d. 09 Sept 1866 in a powder mill accident in Akron after returning from duty in the Civil War.
*Lemuel Randolph b. 1842 in Akron, Summit Co., Ohio, d. Wayne Co., Michigan after 1920.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 124473220

Thank you for straightening out that conundrum. I had thought that Eliza was going by a first name that I hadn't known about but now I understand that Mary E. was the second wife who survived her husband by quite a few years as she is listed in many of the Akron city directories as his widow.

I am a great great grand nephew of Eliza. Henry T. Randolph, her brother was my gg grandfather. The family had a fairly tragic history in their generation. I think the only son that survived past 1870 (the date of Henry's death) was Lemuel who if I remember correctly moved eventually to Michigan and died there. The family was fairly extensive - both the father (William) and mother (Rachael nee Johnston) are buried in Glendale Cemetery as well (no headstones for any of the family evidently), as are Henry and his wife and infant son all dead by 1871 of consumption. Henry's older sisters are there also, one still a Randolph by name, several of the others under the names Flower, etc. If you are interested I will send you the whole list.

Whose interest in the Randolphs is probably obvious.

Find A Grave Memorial# 124473220
Memorial for Eliza Randolph Cleveland, wife of Charles G. Cleveland. - There is evidently two Eliza Clevelands, one died in 1866 as per this memorial and the other outlived her husband and died in 1924 after living in Akron, Ohio as a widow for many years (according to the Akron City Directories). Eliza's first name was evidently Mary as she is referred to as Mary E. Cleveland in several sources, specifically in the Akron City Directories where she is referred to as the widow of Charles G. Cleveland.

Can you shed any light on this quandry?

Spouse of Nadia Govendo
Thanks so much for getting back to me. Max Govendo had a previous marriage to a Mary, who died between 1937 & 4 April 1940. They had 2 kids, with a son dying & buried in NJ in Jan 1940. He had a daughter, Sophie, but I have no info what happened to her. Perhaps Max, even though dying in Akron, OH, may have been buried in NJ? I ahev not found a death or burial Info for his first wife.
