Sarah Jane Shawley
There are actually more than one Sarah Jane Shawley's in my tree. The most prominent, Sarah Jane Shawley Barlet, is my Great Grand Aunt. She is the sister of my Great Grandfather, Miller Shawley. Sarah Jane Shawley Walker is my 1st Cousin, 4x removed. Her Father was William Shawley 1806-1859, who was my 3rd Great Grand Uncle. William was one of the brothers of My 3rd Great Grandfather, David Shawley.

There are actually other Sarah Jane's as well but those two are the most prominent.

Lydia Rupert
I see you posted the memorial for Lydia Rupert 28753488 in Blanchard Cem.Do you know anything about her?

I was going through a bunch of newspaper articles I copied in 2003 at the Ross Library and find a marriage notation for Miss Lydia Linn who married Mr. Levi Rupert on Oct. 28, 1869. I wanted to attach a maiden name to your memorial but the dates are iffy (married at age 11?). I found 1870 census for Levi and Lydia that says bd of 1848-1849, 1880 census for Levi D. and Lydia and it says she was born in 1850, 1900 says Oct. 1853 and 1910 says 1854 all of which would make more sense than 1858. What do you think? Is this Lydia Linn and should be add the maiden name?

I am still trying to figure out if she is related to my Linns who were from Beech Creek.

Kelleher memorials in Saint Johns Cemetery, Bellefonte
Good day Melinda,
I recently started updating/adding info for Saint Johns and was surprised to find the Kelleher family plot there. I bought the family home about 13 years ago. I have info on the family history & connections to be able to update family links & bio info in the site if you wouldn't mind transferring the 8 memorials you created.
Please let me know and thanks much,

RE: deleted

No need to delete your memorial - your memorial is what is called a "cenotaph" - a marker placed in a cemetery where the body is not buried. A lot of people who are buried overseas have memorials back home in their family cemetery - those are OKAY to list here on FindAGrave. You should re-list yours.

RE: Harriet Eva Norton in Askey Cemetery
I still don't have her picture and even if you transferred her to me, I would be unable to copy a picture from my entry and paste it to yours in Findagrave. They require an original.

Harriet Eva Norton in Askey Cemetery
Hi Melinda,

Would you check my entry for Harriet and note the picture that says she is the Daughter of Edward and Mary J Shannon without the Norton name.
Unfortunately, I don't have the picture anymore so I can't add it to your entry.
When you let me know, I will delete my entry.

Find A Grave Memorial# 69876503
W. Frank Martin. I've since checked the online death record which does, in fact, state 1918. However, there is definitely something wrong here as he is alive and aged 51 in the Bellefonte census with Olive and 3 of his surviving 7 children. I wonder if there is a grave marker with the actual year on it.

Find A Grave Memorial# 69876503
W. Frank Martin is in the 1920 Bellefonte census with wife Olive. Somehow, the Union cemetery record online is wrong as he was very much alive in 1920. If you live in Bellefonte, I would very much appreciate if you could visually check the actual Union record as it is very wrong as is.

IN the 1920 Bellefonte census, he is listed at "Franklin Martin".

Joseph Leathers (#28480593)
I noticed that the spelling of his surname on his headstone appears as"Leathars".
Could you explain why his name is spelled as "Leathers" on your page for him?

Thank you.

Thanks for setting up the records for this cemetery. My wife and I will be photographing it though I expect it to take several years due to winter being upon us now. This 7,000+ cemetery will be the largest we have done.
