RE: Getchell connection ?
Hey Rich! So great to get your messages! We're in Seattle on grandparent duty but as soon as we get home on Tuesday, I'll check both the Powell records to see if Thomas is the brother of Jesse + see if you & Jerry are related thru the Getchell connection😊 Sounds like you guys are most likely some level of cousins! It's always so exciting to connect with "family" and we're both thrilled to meet you! Promise to get back to you soon👍 Julie

Rich: You are so right about losing touch so easily. Had I noticed when you requested the photo of Carl and the passing of Arlene, I wouldn't have said anything - sorry, didn't mean to get on my soapbox. :-)

Hi Rich, I have requested F.A.G. to delete the duplicate memorial # 103695453 twice and still there it sits. I also sent a request to contributor Jennifer to reconnect the daughter to the correct memorial and the system won't let me re-send the edit again. Any suggestions?

RE: Carl Raymond Anderson
Yes, I have her headstone photo as well. I would recommend that, in the future, you request both husband and wife (if appropriate). I normally take photos of everyone around the request - just in case. Since these headstones are somewhat distant from each other - another person might have come home and think they'd done a good job to find that - oops - they have to make another trip. :-)

In case you have a connection with Ralph Pearce
I transferred his memorial to you, if you do not wish to have control feel free to transfer back. We are not related to him.

RE: Wifred Huntoon photo
You're welcome Rich. You can tell from the photo how much of the memorial was covered with sod. It is a shame that our veteran's graves aren't better maintained. Emery

RE: Barwell/Timmis family
Thank you so much for the transfer and kind words. I will do my best to take good care of and add as much info as I can find to the memorial. Thank you again for all your help, my husband is very happy to finally find more of the Barwell side of his family. They have been elusive up until recently. :)

Hi Rich

RE: Stanley Mraczek, St. Gregory, North East
Thanks for your reply, Rich. I have just added Stanley's WWII Air Corps graduation picture to the site. My heavens, but they were all so young! My eyes are tearing up, they really were the Greatest Generation.

Stanley and Helen lived on Dougan Road, north of Station Road, in a kind of ramshakle trailer, and had 3 kids, Dianne, Jerry and Tommy. He worked later in his life at GE, as a welder, I think, but not sure. He was older when he married, probably 40's. Believe me, if you had known him, you would know it, he was NOT an ordinary man. He was interested in absolutely everything, was fall down laughing funny, incredibly intelligent, and pretty much a bit crazy. We have a few of those in our family, including me, LOL. His kitchen table was always full of car parts and other things he was fixing. He smoked Camel unfiltered cigaretts, and I remember him showing me how to connect the dots on the camel to make an outline of a pinup girl, probably something he learned during the war. He was a pip, all right, and always enjoyable company. I wish I had other photos, but I lost a lot of things in a flood in my basement in 2000.

I really don't need to "manage" anything, you can see how long it's been since I turned the computer on. I see a nice lady has put a photo of the tombstone. I'm going to try to get there this summer. If you come to North East, I live in Wattsburg, perhaps you'd like to get together and look at all the old WWII photos I have. Thanks so much again for making this entry for Stash. Big hugs to you, Marji

RE: Elizabeth Gilborn photo
I did not see any indication of inscription, or specific headstone, for Henry. We do check each surface of a larger monument for additional inscriptions as we've seen how much may be put onto a larger stone. Unfortunately, inscriptions on certain faces of a stone are much more susceptible to weathering than on other faces due to prevailing winds, and a lot of other factors.

Stanley Mraczek entry, St. Gregory, North East
Thank you so much for making this entry!! This was my Uncle, and I knew he served in WWII in the Army Air Corps, but had no idea he was a Sgt. or what years. I have his WWII photo, and some negatives from pix my Dad took during the war that look like his planes. Dad, A.J. Alexa, served in the Navy at Pearl Harbor, and I have his uniforms, all the photos he took there, etc. and no one to leave them to. Perhaps the WWII museum at Eldred, PA. Thanks again for finding Stash for me, perhaps I can post a photo of his stone, and the portrait. Marji

Keven John Bonner (1962-2015)
Thank you every so much for adding the message on Kevin John Bonner (1962-2015), part of the "Taphophile Duo" father-son Find-A-Grave volunteers. Kevin was so helpful to anyone that needed help. Since his passing, I believe that the "Taphophile Duo" is retired, but I do hope not. There have been no updates or responses. Kevin left a great legacy!

Thank you so very much for the education on the name change of the cemetery and for the transfer of memorial 131980377 for Martha A. Pyle Tabor.

I really appreciate your assistance.

North East Cemetery, North East, Erie County
Pennsylvania, USA was it in 1920 known as Oak Ridge Cemetery. I have a death certificate for Martha A. Pyle Tabor in my family tree. It lists Oak Ridge as the burial place. I can not find a Oak Ridge Cemetery in North East, Erie County, Pennsylvania.
