Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband, Richard, and I live on 15 acres of beautiful woodlands in Western New York State.

I came across this site while looking for my Great-Grandfather and Grandmother in Ohio, and up popped a photo of their memorial & burial site. I had found them!! I was so thrilled! Determined right there and then to start photographing and helping others in our area so that maybe someone else can have the same blessing.

My family's roots are in Wales, England, France, Germany and then West into Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana - Surnames Edwards, Wolf, Smith, Vermillion, Spencer and Fuller. I'm always extraordinarily thrilled to find a new cousin!

Please feel free to use any of my photos or information you need for your trees!

RE: John P Edwards - Brock Cemetery
Should have also mentioned there is a William Edwards next to him. CO. K 5TH US ART. CW. It's what drew me over that way in the first place. Maybe you'd have luck checking to see if this is relly? I was looking for CO. K CW vets for a specific unit for another when I did them.

RE: John P Edwards - Brock Cemetery
It is a hard read and there is more on the stone...I haven't been up lately but can go back to try catch the right light or a better angle on it. I can double check SVR at the library to make sure it is S. Wales. I should have stated that SVR can be found in any county library. Sorry for that misinformation. I can't pull anything off the old photo so I will definitely try to get up for another look at it. SVR mostly gathered the very basic info readable and is current up until the year it was published in the mid-1980's. You can always get me direct if you need to also.

RE: John P Edwards - Brock Cemetery
Glad to help. I looked at this one so many times trying to get a good photo of it since it does have some wear but is in otherwise good shape.
I remember also the first time looking at it as I was concentrating on CW markers that day and there were a few nearby. I will keep it in mind next time through for a better shot. Info supplied on memorial is from Schuylkill Vital Records which can be found in any county library.

Hoag family stone
You've posted a lovely picture of a family stone on the memorial for Amelia (Ingalls) Hoag [#58163502]. Could you please add it to the memorials for her husband Israel Hoag [#58163691] & daughter Florence [#58163526]? Thanks so much!

Grave photo for Linford Wilcox
Thank you so much for taking a photo of his grave marker. It seems it gets harder and harder for me to get up to my old home area in Western NY. Your Findagrave help is very much appreciated.
