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.

To Whom It May Concern: I am unable at the time to make any changes to any FAG records. Please do not email me.

Abbie & The Ranch Girls
Carole, I see that you have put up a lot of information about this group of entertainers. I have a photo you might be interested in. I was trying to find a date for it and stumbled onto Abbie's Find a Grave page. It is a photo of the Harrah's Club Marquis in 1959 when the group was on the marquis with Jerry Colonna and Dick Contino. Also on the marquis was the Mary Hickman Group. Mary was my mother-in-law. I am now the Hickman family historian and have just been given this photo. I would be happy to send a copy by email or have a copy made and sent by snail mail if you are interested.

RE: Elizabeth Hahn Raisley #125795063
Done. Thank you for taking this over. I hope
you can link a bunch of info. Even though I am
no relation to anyone in Laurel Point, I lived three doors down from there so I thought I would record it. Also, I know Jeff Hahn who is related
somehow. He told me how, but I have forgotten.

Henry Drumm

I have attempted to make sure every headstone in St. Cecilia's Cemetery in Beaver County is represented on Find a Grave, but I was unable to find a headstone for Henry Drumm (# 14207159). If you have any idea where this headstone is, please let me know.

Amanda Jane Mullins Neal
I am wondering if you might help. Back in 2013 I had contacted Nancy about Amanda Neal but did not get a response. I now see Nancy has pasted. Amanda was my husband's great-grandmother's sister. I would love to find any info on her. I thought that since you knew the family you might know something. Do you know where Amanda lived when she pasted? Any info would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Arlene Kemp

It was brought to my attention that I have duplicated the record you entered for Arlene Kemp. I used the memorial in the mausoleum in Sylvania Hills as my source. I'll enter some edits for you to take a look at and then delete my record. I'll contact Christy Quattlebaum and ask her to add the photo to your record as she had on mine.

Keep up the good work on Find-a-Grave!

RE: Evelyn R. Carrothers
Wow, that's odd I didn't come across it, or maybe I did, saw she already had a photo and moved on. Thanks for answering. :-)
