Hiccup in the entry... sometimes, if the reply takes too long, I hit enter and post things twice... Sorry, one is deleted.

Finding My Dead
RE: Cpl. Harvey E. Hunker
You're welcome. I was my pleasure. I drive through Indiantown Gap once or twice a month so if you need any other photos just let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Hi Rich
I dropped you an email that I thought you might know the answer to before I put my pics up this weekend :) Thanks! Robin

John McMahon, St. Thomas Cemetery, corry
Called the church today and found there were 2 John McMahons, probably father and son. The lady gave me the dates so I've added them to the memorial and sent the BD to the other one.

Whoops. Not sure how that happened, but thanks for catching it. Problem is that now I don't have a picture for Charles Hurlburt.

I created this memorial the other day, and then I see that you had created a memorial for a K Dotisch. I would have just deleted mine, but I believe that there are some pending edits regarding children for her. So feel free to merge them once they come through.

PA to CA transplant?
Hi Rich:

Very observant of you, noticing where I've taken the most photos (you missed KY!). Actually, I am from KY, but in 2000 my mother and I went to PA for a Brady family reunion. I tried to hit as many cemeteries as I knew about that had burials for anyone even vaguely related to me (or some, really not related - some very distant marriage connection between lines only). That is why there are so many pix from PA. I do now reside in CA, so this is my main photo area now, though I have been known to bring back vacation photos of nothing but dead people('s burial sites)! That is how I got the Mendocino and some other northern CA cemeteries.

I note from some of the other messages that you are interested in North East, PA and the Robinsons and Breckenridges. That being the case, likely there is some very very very (vvvvvvvvv) distant connection as I have those connected to my lines also (as marriages of siblings and cousins and such).

- Kay

Margaret Ellen Brown - Beatty Cem

Went back through my older files and found a tombstone photo for baby Margaret Ellen Brown that was taken in 2011. The caretaker and I went back over this morning and it is NOT there as of today. I put the 2011 photo on the memorial and he's doing research into why the stone is missing.

RE: Breckenridge/Beatty Cemetery
There was no stone found at all for Margaret, but will keep checking with the caretaker as he gave me his personal contact information. He was there working on the 10th when I went back and he had cleared out the Robinson plot and was busy working on the cemetery.

He told me one of the Breckenridge family came and removed their child from the cemetery due to the dispute over the cemetery name, and buried their infant on at their family home. All the death certificates I found, back into the 1920s called it the Beatty Cemetery.

William Ross
No there is no individual stone for William so I opted to at least show the family stone in the middle of the plot. I indicated this in the caption, but unfortunately unless you click on the photo you never see the caption.

RE: Breckenridge Cemetery
Rich: I did take a photo and submitted it - it is pending approval now. Will be going back out there tomorrow as some of the stones were difficult to photograph due to extreme vegetation (we have had an extremely wet and rainy summer and the weeds have gone wild).

I BELIEVE at this point (from a photo I took), that Cornelia Aronson is actually Cornelia A. Robinson! I'll post the photo I do have to it now, it was hidden in vegetation that I'll try and get out of the way tomorrow. I totally believe it shows Cornelia A.Robinson. If so, this would be the Cornelia who married John B. Robinson who died August 21, 1907 in Summit Township and his death certificate shows he is buried in Beatty Cemetery. I have added him to the listing and linked him to his parents, Cloud and July Ann (Lowry) Robinson.

RE: Breckenridge Cemetery
Rich: I have photographed all of the stones there, and several images of the cast iron fence surrounding the cemetery, but there is no name listed, except for on a tombstone erected in the recent past by the First National Bank of Meadville which DOES list it as Beatty Cemetery.

I checked with the county courthouse today, and the historical society, and they both told me that Breckenridge is the name of the cemetery, but that it became known as the Beatty Cemetery when the Breckenridge's passed (only few of them are buried there, mostly Beattty's).

I would suggest having the Breckenridge Cemetery merged into the Beatty Cemetery, listing it as Beatty Cemetery with an AKA of Breckenridge Cemetery.

I'll start now on the listings for Beatty and post what photos I have.

Sorry, but I totally disagree with this. I think her children would agree that their father's name was recognized. You can input your memorials as you like.

Please remove your edit for this memorial. If you read her mother's obituary, Linda was married to a Hassel and then to a Brogen. Thank you.

I did tell the contributor that Edwin was moved, but he did not move the memorial. I have added it to the cemetery at this time until it is resolved.

RE: Charles Brant
I'll go ahead and add your info. I have no idea where I got the other info, but don't want to take anything away from him.

Added by CABrown on Jul 01, 2015 4:02 AM

Charles Brant
Are you saying he was KIA? For some reason, in my virtual cemetery, I have him marked as "died non-battle during war." I had to have gotten the information from someone, as I didn't know him.

RE: Klimczaks in Corry
No, I hadn't seen anything about the Girl in Blue till you mentioned it, so I did check it out. Sad, but at least they're back together. So they apparently never knew what happened to her?
