Bio and Links
Bio Photo I developed taphophilia in Nov 2007. I'm adding what I can, photos and accurate transcriptions, because stones deteriorate and there's no better time than now.

On a philosophical note: I believe that an unmarried woman's surname should never be listed in the "maiden name" field, and a divorced woman who returned to her maiden name should also have that name as her surname.

"unknown" surnames
Hi Chris:

Thanks for catching and correcting my error when I entered the three stones for infants who did not have a surname.

RE: Elizabeth Shirk
Warren first married Elizabeth Davis and had three children. After Elizabeth died, he married Mary Van Pelt; sometime after June 9, 1959, when Mary made a life claim to Social Security.

Thank you Chris. I thought I saw the page enter and I looked but could not find the memorial. I can't access the listing of just my memorials anymore because I have too many.
Please tell me how you located it.
The Main Search engine requires a last name and the Manila cemetery search just kept spinning when I entered Rodrigo.

I don't know how you caught that, but thanks. I don't generally make that mistake.

RE: Walls Family Cemetery
Chris, I have been trying to get this corrected for over two years. I will try again. If i can't get them to do it, I will drive down there and update the gps coordinates for the location.

Mary Ames
I grant you it could be "Ames" but I believe I detect a capital Y where the S should be. The problem is, no families named Ames or Amey lived in Blair County, PA, in the 1900 census - at least not families headed by people with the initials on the stone. So, until somebody can identify her parents, I think I'll be leaving the last name blank.
