Bio and Links
Bio Photo Growing up in southwestern Pennsylvania was a fun thing to do. I used to be my older brother's tag-along. We often rode our bicycles to the town of Crows Run.

There, in the hills, near a cave where we played, we saw the gravesite of "Mr. Conway." He was supposed to be the founder of the town we lived in--Conway, Pennsylvania.

It was a far different world from what it is today. We could do this as children (11-12 years old) and be completely safe. We didn't have to lock our doors at home or put bars on our windows. People could leave their cars unlocked, if they were fortunate enough to have a car. We weren't.

We were poor, but happy. Our Mom would give us each 25 cents a week allowance. It was quite a treat. One day a week, we didn't have to ride our bicycles. Instead, we rode the bus to the movie theatre in Freedom, Pennsylvania, paid to get into the show, bought a bag of popcorn, and had a nickle left over.

We went to the show often because one week's chapter had the hero being blown up in a cave and we'd have to go back again the following week to find out how he escaped.

Conway Junior High School had the best teachers in the world. We thrived on going to school and enjoyed our history classes most of all.

Now that I am much older and my family has all passed away, there is no one with whom I can go forward so I made the decision to go backwards with the historical studies of genealogy.

At Find A Grave, I have met some of the nicest people in the world, who have the same interests as I do. They have provided me with information about my family and my genealogical research for free and for fun.

Laurel Point Freeds Cemetery
I was wondering if by chance you were the person who added this cemetery? I think it shoud probably be listed as just Laurel Point, North Sewickley Twp., Beaver Falls, Beaver Co., PA.

There is already a listing for Laurel Point Cemetery in Beaver Co. but did not have any interments listed so I added my photos to the Laurel Point "Freeds" cemetery since there were already a few listings that I found graves for there.

I think by removing Laurel Point (with no listings) and changing Laurel Point Freeds to just Laurel Point would correct everything.

It's Jerry and she has been gone before my dad passed away. She died a year or 2 before my dad Jerry not Gerry. Never was he know as Gerry to anyone. So how do I have the information removed it has info about our private family cemetery and does not need to be posted online. I read who you were I asked how to remove my father's information.

RE: John Werthmann
The John I was asking is this one 5637700 and your description gives his mothers first name of Theodora, and didn't mention his fathers name/or connect to his grave/if he has one, or mention any siblings of his. You did list his spouse and children, which I am not familar with. So probably not related, but was curious who his father is and /or if he had other siblings. I have two Werthman(n)'s that came from Germany, and cannot locate any additional information on them. Carl Louis Werthmann born 1869 -1922/Philadelphia naturalization/ lived in NY and then in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and on one census, his brother Mike/Michael Werthmann born in 1886 and passing in Iowa. I have yet to locate their parents and/or any other siblings of theirs.

thank you, Pat

John Werthmann
Carole, we have communicated previously on our Werthman/n families, and I was wondering if you knew any of John's siblings? I am also reviewing immigration & naturalization records as they are or seem similar to some of mine. Also, searching for his parents and grandparents and their siblings! Thank you for all of your work!

Mr Chops third wife.
Hi,

I think Stanley's third wife in Florida was a widow, Elizabeth Gall (Gaal) Aytay (1898-1973). She was the widow of Frank Aytay. She was born in Hungary a daughter of Emri and Agnes Papp Gaal. She had two brothers Andras (Andrew} and Emre (Emery) Gaal later surname changed to Gall. Emre was my husband's step grandfather.

I would be glad to give you more information if you would like. Her obituary said she was buried in Tampa Florida. Would you happen to know more about that?

Thank you,
Patricia
