Also -- it looked as if you may have had to clear the stones of weeds/grass. Much appreciated as well.

Wilhelm/Home Headstone
Hi Zella,

Thank you so much for posting the Ruth Wilhelm headstone photo from Glendale cemetery, and for adding the Frank Home memorial as well. That solved a number of misconceptions!

RE: Hochstetler again
No worries. It looked like it could get a bit messy. I'm glad I let you know of it. tc.

RE: Hershberger Cemetery, Elklick Twp.
I have attempted to communicate with her but she is adamant that she has correctly placed her memorials in the correct cemetery and refuses to delete or move them. She is quite rude about it and my communication with her became nasty when it started into my private email as well. My only recourse it seemed was to put the comment on the site.

I hate that they are there and are incorrect, but I'm at a loss how to correct without her cooperation and without deleting the cemetery and starting again. Any thoughts?

Maybe you can reach out to her and she'll listen to you.

John A Kelly @ Fairview
Hi Zella,
We have a project in operation to replace the headstones on the Inner Soldiers Circle. Corp John A Kelly's should be replaced with a legible modern VA headstone by the end of summer 2016.
Thank you,
Don Coho

Peter Joseph Hohman

I would like to thank you for the pictures of my great great grandfathers stone. I am in the middle of putting a family tree together and this is great documentation. The story of his murder was recently shared with me about the billiard cue ball. If you have any other documentation that about Peter that you could share with me I would be more than happy to see document and learn.

Thank you again!!!!!

Ludwig Wissinger
Me again. I just found Ludwig's Will. No Margaret or Margaretha is named as a child. However, online trees state that he married 1781 but his first children weren't born until 3 or 4 years later. He very well could have had my gal the year after he married, which fits. Supposedly Margaretha Wissinger and Michael Mock married 1797. She would have been abt. 16. They moved to Ohio in 1827. Maybe that's why she's not named in the Will, because she moved away? Just thinking. Can find no proof of anything anywhere.

Ludwig Wissinger
Zella, I'm just beginning this research, but I found a "Ludwick Wessinger" who bought land in Cumberland Co. PA in 1797. He's the only "Wissinger" I can find in Cumberland Co. around that time. In the 1790 census it appears he's in Bedford Co. By 1810 he's in Cambria Co. (spelled Lodwick Wissinger).

Supposedly my ancestor Michael Mock of Cumberland Co. married a gal named Margaretha Grace Wissinger in 1797. I'm thinking Ludwig/Ludwick might be her father. Your thoughts?

RE: David Sprague
Thanks Zella, good thing I didn't delete the link from Catherine to David, or change his stats when you first sent a request for correction. The Hier's are my maternal ancestors, and would love to see what you're working on.

Catherine Sprague
Received your message. Interesting info re: David Sprague. I will need to get with the people who created the memorials, and Sprague family members to research it more before I unlink and correct the info. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. Are you a Sprague family descendant?

McDowell Cemetery, Altoona PA

I am with a local Lions Club that has an interest in doing a clean upo of brush and graas in this cemetery.

We are hoping to find a local contact to get approval.

Any thoughts?

RE: Josephine Haessly edit
Well I took the A out again, and corrected the spelling of the maiden name. I also linked her to her parents. A friend found some other documents and I can email you if you would like.

Added by Judy H on Mar 31, 2016 8:28 PM

RE: Josephine Haessly edit
I did add the maiden name, but I had found her obit and that also had Josephine A, like a middle initial. After I approved the edit for the maiden name, I went back and re-added the initial. If you have any record showing that she has a different middle initial, I'll be glad to change it. I didn't verify the maiden name, I just took your word for that. I just thought since I had seen the A in two places, the tombstone and the obit, that I would leave that for now. Always happy to re-visit.

Hi, I can add the maiden name, but I was wondering why you want the middle initial of A deleted. It shows the A on her tombstone. Thanks

Emma Elizabeth Kerns Koon
Hi Zella, this grave is of my Great Grandmother. She was a Native American adopted by an Irish couple (The Kerns (Kearns)). We are trying to find out more about her husband Jacob Hill-Koon. Do you have any info? Thank you so much for taking the time to put up the photo of her grave. It means a lot to me.

It's really not a big deal if you'd rather not connect them at this time. I'll continue to look for better and more substantive evidence. Let me know if you discover anything about his place of internment in your own research.
