This monument in Northeast cemetery PA says "God Is Love." It is one of my favorites. |
I am happy to do this work to help the living, the dead and those to come. Sometimes, though, the pain of the losses people have felt just staggers me.
I am very, very grateful to other volunteers who have put up info that has helped me in my ancestry searchs.
If possible, I would grateful if you could leave a flower at my cousin Lt. Edwin Neely who was killed at Normandy as part of the D - Day invasion so that he is remembered.
Find A Grave Memorial# 56648174
It would be a lot to me. It took me awhile to find him.
(I found out some of the pictures I post turn out upside down on some people's computers but not others. I don't understand it at all so I don't know how to fix it but I think it might be something with the IPhone I don't understand.
Write me if something is wrong!)

|Zim||RE: Thank you|
You are very welcome. Pittsburgh seems to be the gateway to the rest of the country. There are so many cemeteries with very old stones and soon they will be eroded away. It is the reason I spend my spare time in cemeteries.
If I have any of your relatives please feel free to ask for management. Family belongs together in this world and the next.

I don't see your invite yet on ancestry,
my profile there is LMAK60, tree = Aiman/Mann-McDonald/Elliott/Herman/McCullum
I'm still using 'classic' ancestry, haven't touched the new version, heard too many bad stories....

I believe Alexander McDonald to be my 3rd great grand Uncle. I noticed you left a flower and are related to him also. My grandfather's biological mother was Alexander's grand niece. If you have and would be willing to share information on this branch of the family, I would greatly appreciate it.

|Anonymous||sorry, wrong name|
As I was about to send the pictures of the stones I realised one is Champlain and the other is Champlin.
Sorry for the mistake. I did post then on the find a grave site for Little Valley Rural cemetery anyway.
Someone may look for them someday.
|Anonymous||J B Champlin|
Sorry, forgot to put a title with that headstone. :)
|Anonymous||RE: thank you! and question|
I have added a photo of the headstone so you can see what it looks like.
I have pictures of William, Theodora, James, Emma , Amella, Cordelia, Robert and Ursula Champlin. Are they some that you want. I didn't see all of them listed but the graves are there.

It is my passion doing this work. I so always hope that the memorials and photos that I add will help, and that the people were worthy.
I added a flower to your cousin's memorial. My son and I did a road trip last year on Highway 61 that began at the border of Canada in Minnesota and ended in New Orleans. While in New Orleans we discovered that there was a World War II museum there associated with the Smithsonian, and Tom Hanks who had of course starred in the Movie "Saving Private Ryan". It was an amazing museum, not to be missed if you are ever in New Orleans. It is my intention next year to visit France with two of my grown children, and while there to not only visit the homeland, and graves of our ancestors, but to also visit the sites of the invasion, and the cemeteries of our fallen heroes. Perhaps I will find your cousins grave while there and pay my respects to him.

I haven't determined why the tombstone is so bizarre.

Well the snow melted again but the wind is still cold. I checked around the plot and monument & took pictures from various angles. If she was buried in her parent's plot, a separate marker doesn't appear to have been placed & there are no additional engravings on the other 3 sides of the monument. Assuming a square pattern for a plot would mean that the 4th corner stone is missing also.
I'll see what sort of cemetery contact info I can discover for you. There isn't any sort of office or landscaping shed at the cemetery, unless it's on the other side of the fence. I'm new to this and am curious how a person arranges for monument updates & maintenance for their departed ancestors.
|Christine Hails||RE: Thank you|
Hi there, I plan on re-checking that plot when all of the snow has melted. There should be a marker in that outlined plot specifically for Margaret, but it wasn't obvious when I went. The first stone on the front left edge is the plot boundary marker. The 2nd from the left says Mother, the third from the left says Father. The stone in the back right corner shows the other boundary. There were no obvious markers on the other side of the plot.
It's possible that a flat marker was placed on the other side and the grass has since grown over it. I'll be able to tell when the rest of the snow melts. I've found a couple of markers in the cemetery in such condition. Makes me wonder how landscaping & memorial preservation are actually managed.
I just started today taking pictures of everything there systematically since so much of that one isn't done. I'll be sure to have an update for you when the ground conditions improve for the season.
