RE: Joseph Connaughton Headstone Pix
Hi Maxine, I finally got back to Holy Cross after this long winter. I rechecked the Connaughton information Joseph and Thomas both 1937 and that picture is the head stone. No writting must have worn away. I will post a wider shot so if you visit you can find it. Also, there were 9 others buried in the same plot. I have made memorials for them. If you want me to transferr Let me know.

Lucille Levett Connaughton
hi Maxine,
I added a photo to Thomas's memorial. however Lucille's name isn't on the stone. I checked the online search engine and her name isn't there either. if you are positive she is buried there then you should call the office and ask them to add her name.

RE: Ruth Koenigsberg
you're very welcome. we searched the others but no luck. cemetery plots have no numbers. btw the JOWBR site on Jewishgen has numerous grave photos from that cemetery (they claim 3000+).

RE: Joseph Connaughton Headstone Pix
Hey, I will recheck. If it is the stone is so old and unable to read any writting.

Hello, Maxine. You left flowers for the grave of Lulu V. Meyers in the American Colony Cemetery. I am researching this branch of the family tree. Do you know anything at all about these folks? If so, it would be good to speak with you about them. Please do get in touch. Thank you.

RE: Flernoy Columbus Jewell
You are welcome. I know there was already one on that memorial, as well. I posted it anyway since it was a little clearer than the existing one.

RE: James K. Polk Fry
Pls send me an email. We have James Fry reburied here from the Presbyterian Cem. She is buried in a large family plot for the Fry family. It will take some research, if you could send names/dates/range and site I will try and figure it out.

Would you mind uploading one of your photos of Jane's memorial to her husband Ralph's memorial please?

It would be nice to see the photo of their complete monument, bearing both of their names, on Ralph's monument as you've done for Katie.

Katie's memorial is: 135255220

Ralph's memorial is: 130611736

Many thanks

William Purkeypile
William has no legible stone in Sugar Ridge; however, there is one for Rebecca. Hers is in a row with Ella's & Uriah's. There is an empty spot between Rebecca's stone and that of Uriah's. See family plot photo I took on their memorial pages to see the empty space. I suspect that may be where William is interred & perhaps where a stone once stood. Alternatively, William's engraving may be on the reverse side of Rebecca's stone but it is much too heavy to be lifted nor would I take a chance on breaking it. I can tell you from a 1930's DAR reading of the cemetery, his stone was engraved "Purkeypile William Died May 5, 1888 Aged 71 yrís." If you would like me to add the photo of the family plot to William's memorial page, I am happy to do so.

RE: Maude May Booher Graham Cornell
Hi Maxine,
I hope you are doing well. Eventually, I think i should transfer all of my records to someone. I'm not going too be around forever and I do want someone to maintain and update the record. I was hoping we could somehow merge the records, but I don't think that possible ... I did notice your record may have the incorrect location Maude's location of death. You've done some great work, so let me review a few things and if you really want to take this one over, I will look into transferring it to you

Hi Maxine,

I am working on my Adams - Spear line and came across your helpful post.

May I ask the source material for your Partridge information? You have specific dates that I have been unable to find elsewhere and would love to include them in my records.

Indian cemetery
Anytime! It really is a hidden gem and worth the visit if you know the way! Not many know of the location and it's not well cared for along the way. Was somewhere I felt drawn to visit so my husband and our two kids made out way through the brush and over logs and streams yesterday to visit a few of the founding settlers of our town. Today's plans include the old Dutch cemetery also in Bushkill!

Indian cemetery Bushkill

I was at Indian cemetery today. I have uploaded photos of all markers that have any writing remaining. Some markers have no visible etching left and I'm assuming those are the ones you are seeking. Many stones are nearly 100% covered by earth, some have fallen over. Hope what I uploaded helped your search.
