Another Big Thank You for the transfers of my grandparents. They passed away 2 days apart when I was just nine years old. The love they had for their children and grandchildren was precious and I will always miss them.

RE: Philip aub and Elizabeth Koch
I don't know how it could easily be combined. If one is deleted, all the links go. Correct cemetery takes precedence over date created. You could email Find a Grave and ask for a merge into the correct cemetery.

Captain Patrick Graham
Dear Joan,

Thank you for starting the page for my Great Great Great Grandfather Captain Patrick Graham.

Thank you also for allowing me to take over from you. You have provided information that I did not have.

I have added his obituary and it is something to read!

He was a Civil War Veteran, was a prisoner of war and was a prominent citizen of his hometown of Johnstown, PA

I only recently learned about my GGG Grandfather and am proud to be descended from him. His oldest daughter married Stephen Braden Gregory and that's my connection to the Captain.

Thank you for all you do!

Hugh McMullen
You have Hugh McMullen buried at St Michaels Loretto Find A Grave no 137317736 as the husband of "Mary" Riffel McMullen in St Augustine cemetery Find A Grave NO 45764410. Her husband and the correct Hugh McMullen is also buried at St Augustine Find A Grave no 45764346. There stones match. and the name on 45764410 should be Catherine to match the stone not Mary
