John W. Emore
On you mention on find a grave you state that Mr. John W. Emore was born 1892 in fact he was born March 17, 1891,also he died January 5, 1960. I am his 4th great granddaughter, and I have his death certificate. His father was Isaac Emore and his spouse was Annie Weidemayer.

Thank you making this change.

RE: Memorial #76419609
Thank you for correcting the listing. FYI, there is an family tree that shows Catharine died in NY. I am finding a lot of wrong information on Ancestry as well as a lot of good info.

Memorial is for Catharine A. Bright Lengel. Curious how you got her place of death as Kings Co., NY. I have a copy of her death certificate which says she died in Reading (in the home of her daughter Beulah Yeager, who was my grandmother).

Memorial 131464304
I was going to add some new graves to Gethsemane Cemetery in Berks Co., and ran a search of the name Gallagher to be sure I didn't duplicate and found that I already had made a duplicate of the above referenced grave for Alexander Gallagher. He is my 1st cousin twice removed (or the son of my great great aunt Mary E Kennedy). The one I have created was after the one you have, so there will be some choices to make.

I think I prefer to ask you to transfer this grave to me, so I can delete the one I made and then just continue to add the rest of my family that I have.

The other option would be if you did not want to transfer, then you could use the information from my memorial 135822768 to bring that one up to date.

My goal is just to get it down to one memorial and have the family all connected. I will leave it up to you. I really appreciate that you have put so much work into recording all these gravesites. It is also something that I enjoy doing, although I don't get to visit them, just add the data as I add it to my genealogy.

Thank you so very much.

Kate M (nee Wagner) Petree
Hello, I've meant to do this for a while, and I'm not sure how to do this.
I would like to take over the Find a Grave memorial for my Great Grandmother, Kate M Wagner Petree, memorial # 61180805. Her second child, Ella May Petree,not listed in the memorial, also in this cemetery - Union, Womelsdorf, PA- was my grandmother.
Frank D Petree was my gr.grandfather.
Kate and Frank had 11 children: Charles, Ella, Mary, Harry, Claude, William, Ralph, Paul, Esther, Edith and Anna.

Can you tell me what can be done for the relatives who did't have children? My great aunt, Esther Irene Petree Leinback and her husband, Louis Miller Leinback, chose not to have any. So technically, no one in the family can take it over.
The same problem exists for the 3 other greats that are buried with or near Frank and Kate:
Paul, who died at 20 from "consumption"-TB in 1918
2 little girls buried with their Aunt Amelia, facing their parents:
Edith Margaret, 1902-1906, COD: Diphtheria
Anna Catherine, 1907-1913, COD: measles, pneumonia

Thank you for any advice or help you can give me.

I appreciate seeing my friend now on Find a Grave.
Thanks you so very much! That was done so quickly.

Thank you so much for letting me know about this. I have moved the couple to the correct cemetery. Are there headstones that are able to be photographed ? They are my ancestors so i would be very interested in seeing them and a photo of the cemetery as well :) Thank you !

Sergio Valori
I see Sergio's father and mother are here. I am wondering if you might add their only son to Find a Grave. He died recently and am assuming he is in same cemetery. He was a well know minister in Leesport, PA and a friend of mine since our childhood. I would like to honor him by posting a photo as I did for his Mother and Father. Thank you............
My appreciation,
Mary Jane in California.

RE: Remp cemetery
Are you getting all the updates on the Remp cemetery research by BCAGP? I am getting copies and I'm not sure if I should be forwarding. Idon't have your email address.

Remp cemetery
I have never been there. I checked in with BCAGP and am told your cemetery is getting the full research effort by some very skilled volunteers. Maybe we can get a work party up there by next summer. Theses things take time, they have a lot on their agenda.
Nice work with the Remp school. Are you also related to the Blankenbillers? Been running into them lately, as you must realize.

Fredric William Rode (d 1879)
This is my husband's 2great grandfather who lived in Leesport.

According to my father-in-law, he remembers visiting Fredric's grave with his family at Eggleman's Church Cemetery in Leesport.

Obviously, this church no longer exists. Do you have any knowledge of where this church/cemetery may have been located in Leesport?

Milton Kercher
I was updating the family records and noticed there are two memorial for Milton, yours in Fairview and a newer one in Hope Cemetery. Looking into this, I believe he is actually in Hope Cemetery.
I will try to change the links for his wife and children over to that memorial, since he is in Hope Cemetery.

RE: William Rhoads
I had sent info about William's parents before I found better info. His mother's maiden name should be Kendall and not Rendall as it looks in a couple records. Her Find A Grave is # 67491596. I tried to send another edit for her and links to her parents Henry & Caroline (Strohecker) Kendall.

RE: Remp cemetery
You know, way back when I found Emanuel cemetery and was taking photos there was an old codger living there and we chatted for quite a while. He was quite interesting. He told me about an old cemetery in the woods just up the road and down a hill. He said he would take me there some time. I never forgot about it but got too busy to go back. I did not know it was called Remp.
Then last week I stumbled onto this Remp graveyard from the records of the BCAGP. Sounds interesting, and exciting too.
I don't go into overgrown cemeteries any mote since I had a full blown attack of Lyme disease this summer. But now it should be safe.
Good luck and give me a progress report.
