RE: Elizabeth Neill Mahon # 95828280
He was not with her when I reviewed the cemetery record transcription. It would be nice to know we're the second wife is buried. If there are typos here it is because FindAGrave keeps putting a pop up add were I am typing. Please drop this practice FindAGrave. Until then please do NOT donate to RIC!

Rosana Emmel, Find A Grave Memorial# 17804448
Hi Mark!

If you are not a relative of Rosana, would you consider turning over her memorial to me? She was my g-g-g-g-grandmother.

I transcribed and photographed her stone in 2004 (seems like it was clearer in 2004 than it is in the more recent photos.) Anyway, this is how I read the inscription:

memory of
ROSANA, Mother of
Phillip Emmel,
Who departed this life
March 28, 1823. aged 74

On Good Friday it is said I died,
The day my Saviour was crucified.

Children dear for me don't weep.
I am not dead I do but sleep:
If prepar'd we shall arise
And meet our Savior above the skies.

No problem...are you a relative? My aunt told me that he was buried near my other aunt and uncles and I've been attempting to locate anyone in the Merrifield family from his line. They are cousins via our Brady line.

RE: Daniel Lorah
I sent some clarification and documentation on his father and father's burial. I saw no evidence that his father (the one buried #19423397) was married to a Dorothy Weidner (must have been a 3rd marriage as I have a brief first marriage with a wife who died within a year).

RE: Pvt Ruppert
Depending on how the applicant is regarded by the V.A. they are probably not challenged. This is especially true with farm cemeteries. I do know Mertz church does not find him in their records at all. Another good example for that cemetery, look at the memorial for Israel Cronrath. He died of sickness in the war. You will note there is a military stone for him in the old graveyard. There is also a monument for him up on the hill and all his family. Where does he actually lie.??? Perhaps one and then the other when his wife died.

Hi Mark. I'm hoping you continue to improve with the medical condition. Keep the Faith.
MHBA is "History and Biographical Annals" but I don't know what PPC is. These records were compiled by BCAGP, Berks County Assc. for Graveyard Preservation and includes every historic cemetery of the county.
Stay well,

RE: Charles A Cavileer #18158639
Hi Mark,

If you click on the photo itself, I have placed in the caption the exact location that I downloaded the photo. It was retrieved from the U.S. Passport Applications (lots of good personal information found there) on Family Search/National Archives December 1914/January 1915.

I don't have any other photo's. I was just looking for my own family and ran across Charles', and could definitely identify his memorial on F-A-G so I posted it. Paying it forward.

Warm regards,

RE: Wilbert F Estlow
Hi there! I was asked to manage the memorial for Wilbert Estlow by another Find-a-Grave contributor and am not related. I'm so sorry that I have no additional information to offer you about it. I don't have memorials in my care for Godrey and Mary (Maxwell) Estlow, but I do see this memorial for a Godfrey Estlow married to a Mary (Maxwell) in a Waretown, NJ cemetery. Here's the link:

Might this be the relative for whom you're searching? I do hope this helps!

RE: Fesslers Schuylkill County PA
Thank you so much for all the transfers! I really appreciate it. My ancestors stayed pretty much in Schuylkill County. I am still trying to tie my Charles Ney 1827 to the Ney family in Hegins which is less than 10 miles from where Charles lived. Genealogy a very interesting and sometimes aggravating hobby. I found info on one Ney relative that moved to Ohio and spelled his name Nye but that is the only one I found so far.
