Bio and Links
Family historian, micropaleontologist, hiker, retired teacher among other things. Thanks to all who posted memorials and photos useful in my family tree, and made memorials of closer family members. I do not "own" my memorials and photos, your non-commercial use for family purposes is fine with me, credit is appreciated in your trees, histories and websites. Prohibited: commercial use unless you have my written permission.

Now working on Strausbaugh family tree. NEED HELP: looking for parents of Lucy Ann Elizabeth Strausbaugh, wife of Melchior Sachs. Married 1849 March 16 in Gettysburg, non-Cathlic rite. Born in or near Gettsyburg, PA about 1829. NOT Lucy Ann the daughter of George Strausbaugh and Elizabeth Bittinger, that Lucy Ann married Joseph Warner and stayed in Pennsylvania instead of moving to Illinois. Anyone knowing her parents names please contact me.

Magdalena Flanigan in St. Joseph
I took a few different shots of the stone. I lightened the close-up so the inscription can be read. If you click open the photo, I added the full inscription to the photo. There are overlapping branches that canopy this stone and I do not believe sunlight ever reaches it, regardless of the time of day. Hope these pics help, Happy Hunting!

RE: Rufus Mitchell
Chris,

I am more than willing to transfer to a family member who wants to keep the memorials of their family - just say the word. Outside of that, I am willing to make any additions or corrections that you would like to see with the memorial. Kay

You are very welcome. Please feel free to capture the photo and use in any way you wish for your family records or otherwise. That is a very beautiful little cemetery and a wonderful resting place for your family.

Blessings,

RE William Lourcey Grave
Hi I am working on my geneology and found William Lourcey's grave with a note from you to "rest in peace cousin". He was married to my grandmother and my father always considered him to be his father. I a trying to find information about him to add to our family tree. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

RE: Dorothy Williams photo
Chris,

Actually, there isn't as much smog here as other cities, but it has been very hot in the Valley, where Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills and the one in Glendale are. But, it is very beautiful and cool early in the morning and I love taking photos there.

You are certainly most welcome for Dorothy's photo.
