Bio Photo If you find a relative among those I have listed and would like editorial control over their memorial page, I will gladly submit a transfer request.

I do not delete my memorials in favor of newer created memorials so please don't ask. The deleting of memorials causes issues for those who have linked to them.

Feel free to use any of my photographs for your personal use however you choose, no need to ask or give credit.

Re: John Collins, Jr.
Thank you so much!!!!! for transferring our John Collins, Jr. to me. I've already typed in a write up I have of him, that was in one of his father's home town newspapers. You may enjoy reading it. Do you know of anyone in the area that researches archive records from that area? I'd like to retrieve his death certificate and newspaper articles that pertain to them and/or the mining going on there.

George Vanderslice
Sent this to the owner as well.

This obituary as well has his wife's maiden name as hause.

Please cut and paste to the bio section:

Daily Local News, West Chester, Chester County, Pa.
May 22, 1906

George W. Vanderslice, aged 40 years, died at his late home, South Fifth avenue, Coatesville, Sunday. Death was due to blood poisoning, which developed from a scratch on his leg by a piece of scrap iron. Besides his wife, who was Miss Hattie Hause, he leaves four children: Annie, Helen, Alice and Raymond, all at home. He had been associated with the Lukens Iron and Steel Company for nearly twenty-nine years, and was an active member of Brandywine Fire Company, No. 2, also of the American Mechanics and Knights of Malta and the Presbyterian Church.

Wilson Vanderslice, his father, is still living, John Vanderslice, Robert Vanderslice, Mrs. William John, Coatesville, and Miss Ella Vanderslice, of Lancaster, are brothers and sisters. The funeral will be held to-morrow. Mr. Vanderslice was a member of the old Star Band.

You requested a tombstone image of this burial:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=106612811

Since I can't get that, I sent the following to the owner of the entry for inclusion.

Please cut and paste this obit to the bio page. I question the maiden name "Ruth" based on the obit and the Death Certificate. I think it should be Hause. I just noticed someone was asking for a tombstone photo and thought I'd offer this. I'm not family.
Oh, it also confirms the burial date as Oct 7 supporting your comments.

Memorial Transfer
Sorry to keep bugging you but I keep discovering that you manage pages of my relatives. I'm new to Find a Grave so I'm not sure if there'a an easier way to request memorial transfer than leaving a message for you. Please let me know if there is.

Otherwise, can you transfer 137199610 to me? :)

Thank you!
Emily

RE: Sandy Creek Cemetery
You're welcome. They were both very old and hard to read. I plan to make another trip there in the spring. If I get better pictures of them I will let you know.
