RE: George

I'm so glad I was able to help.

Thanks for all the work you do for Find a Grave I have seen your pics on some of the soldiers' memorials from the Natl. Cemetery. My son & I were there to help the NPS clean the cemetery in the spring. I go to Sharpsburg often.

If I can be of any more help please don't hesitate to ask.

The caretaker at Spring Hill checked the records and George was removed from Green Hill Cemetery's mausoleum in West Virginia in 1957 and his body was brought to Spring Hill and buried.

I sent detailed info to have the memorial in Spring Hill updated with the correct info.

I don't believe that George passed away in PA although that is on the place of death field on the memorial. I searched PA death certs and one does not show up for him. I do not have any proof though where he died.

I found a stone for George. I will call the cemetery tomorrow and see if George wasn't moved into Spring Hill rather than moved out like the local burial records stated.

Hi. I just received the note that George was removed from his crypt in the other cemetery. I have no idea where he is since local records state he was removed from Spring Hill. I will still check to see if a stone is there for him there.

Dr. George Sponseller
Hi. I saw your request for a pic of the stone of Geo. Sponseller. He is not buried in Spring Hill any longer although he originally was. There is a notation in burial records that his body was removed to Virginia on 8-14-1957.

He was originally buried in Spring Hill in Section 4.4. His wife, Nellie Reddig Sponseller is listed as being buried there.

I will look for a stone when I get a chance but wanted to let you know that records state he was moved.

Thank you so much, BIRDMAN, for photographing the location of the gravesite. It means so much to me because, Number 1, I don't make another photo request, and, Number 2, family will know where he is buried in case anyone would like to place a marker on his grave.

Thanks again for making the extra effort.

In Beaver Creek, you have an R L Harshman. I see that you did not create this page. Does your photo have birth & death dates for Mr Harshman? I have a Roger L. Harshman, son of J Emory and Mollie as being born in 12/19/1912 and dying 4/19/1979. Just wondering if this is a coincidence or the same person.

RE: Albertine Snader Engle
I knew something was going on with the memorials that Stars & Bars originally created in Edge Hill. Most memorials for my family are there but no info other than name and dates. I'm a bit irritated because I put in a lot of edits updating family relationships and location info. That person was snippy with me and declined some edits that I absolutely knew to be true because they're my family.

Is your wife one of the West Vriginia Canfields. Did they come from Randolph Co.,? I'm just guessing.......

Thank you for trying to get a photo of Mrs. Canfield's tombstone. In hindsight we should have been waited for a more appropriate amount of time given the fact she only passed away last fall. We are going to remove our request and try another time.
