Thank you. Appreciate the reply. Another family mystery. How they ended up buried in Pennsylvania. Something more to ponder. May never know. Thanks for all you do. Tanya

RE: Sanford Omensetter
Hi Joz,
That is how you turn on/off the Italics text in HTML. If something is enclosed between the "less than" and "greater than" characters, the html language that "builds" the web page see them as a text format "tags". "i" can be used for italics, b for bold. The slash "/" in the second tag indicates turn it off - end of text to italic or bold. Not all of Find A Grave fields will execute the commands, but the BIO and photo captions do.

Use my name as reference
Absolutely, you can use my name for your bio references. Not a problem. Thank you for asking. Judi Wilson

Looked up that member. Person is new to Find A Grave, correct? If so maybe just needs direction. And does name stand for "genealogy"? I don't know.

I saw your message about Old Swedes. I've photographed all stones here---readable or not. I've received messages as well. Grrrrrrr. My feeling is this is a very old historic cemetery and stones are fragile (at best). Better to have something than nothing at all is my view. Hopefully someday someone can match up correctly with the records they have there. That would be a major project, but worthwhile. Ignore the nasty!!! Like I said, better to have a crumbling stone than no stone at all.

Another steamy hot day :( Looking forward to cooler weather so I can get back out to cemeteries.

Dear, Joz,
I recently learned that my aunt, Lorraine Weierbach, is interred in Estell Manor Veteran's Cemetery. If possible, could you place a memorial on here for her. I ask as you have already placed my Dad, Joseph A. Weierbach and, my uncle, John N. Weierbach.
Sincere Thanks,
Joel A. Weierbach

Thank you so much, Joz, for the pictures of all the headstones you have uploaded to Find A Grave. It seems like everytime I find a headstone for a relative (most recently, several in the Head of the River Cemetery in Atlantic County, New Jersey) I find your name underneath the photo. I hope you don't mind if I copy the picture to my family tree, as I always give credit to you (or whomever takes the picture) and Find A Grave.

Thanks again for all your efforts.

No rush on the copy of the Pitt gravestone to help me find Edmund's. I wondered what would happen to the church cemetery now that the church is closed. Nice to know that the cemetery is protected and the graves cannot be moved. Your information is perfect for me to find his grave the next time I am in Pennsylvania. Most grateful = Carolyn

Edmund Lord No. 9401032
Thank you so much Joz for your reply on the same day! Your description on how to find his grave is just what I needed. I am confident I can now find him my next trip to PA. I usually go in the spring also when a family wedding or occasion. A 9 1/2 hour drive for me. It might be that the stone has weathered so much that I cannot read what is there now so I am grateful for your photograph. My email is for you to send a copy of the Pitt gravestone. I thank you for your kind offer to meet us if we need help. I am in awe of your dedication to Find A Grave. You help so many of us. I am most grateful - Carolyn

Hi Roz - I was in the cemetery yesterday looking for Edmund's gravestone and was not able to find the location of it. I wanted to read and take notes of all that was written on the stone. Was your photograph taken recently? Did you by any chance record all that could be read on the stone? I am back in Michigan and will not be making another trip for a year. Any help you can give me will be appreciated. Because of his grave number I thought it might be closer to the church. Do you know of any index that might show the location in the graveyard.
Most Sincerely - Carolyn Krueger

My name is Brad Stanton and currently managed the cemetery at Elam UM Church, Glen Mills, PA.

It was noted that you added info in the grave of George Adamson. Great ... but if you have more info on George we will be pleased to add it to his 'private' records.

In fact if you have other folks in our cemetery, we are interested in that info. Obituaries, photos, History and if he or she is a veteran.

picture of headstone
Joz, Question as to why picture of my mother's headstone looks like a transparent blob? Her name was Marie Cordle and was buried in Lawncroft Cemetaryin Linwood Pa.....born 5/3/1927 and passed away 8/18/1969. Has it been damaged? Since I have remarried and moved away, it is possible Lawncroft has tried to reach me and could not, Thank you for any help you may able to provide. Ruth Houser

William M Dittmer
I have found a stone that you photographed:

William M Dittmer 1876-1912 Lawncroft Cemetery, Linwood, Delaware County, Pa.

However, the person I spoke to at the cemetery has no listing for this person, nor any similar spelling. Also, she and another person in the office do not recognize the stone. (It is rather large - pink, and would be hard to miss)

Is it possible that this stone is from another cemetery? If so, which one?

Note: I am seeking information as to where his parents might be buried: Henry and Caroline Dittmer/Dettmar, and hope they may be in the same cemetery.

William is at Saint Augustine National Cemetery, St. Augustine, FL. You added a photo for him in 2006. I just wanted to Thank You for caring enough to do this for all of us. William is my Great Grandfather's brother. It took many years to track him down, mostly because info was not as available as it is online now. It is so nice to have a place to pay respect.
