RE: Robert Galbreath
No, I'm not in Ireland. I had just come across his obituary and since it had such great information in it, I went to see if a memorial had been created for him and that's when I came across yours.

How wonderful that you are taking a trip to Salt Lake. I hope you find good results!! That is so exciting.

In the obituary, including on the memorial that you created, it says that he was born in County Tyrone, Ireland. County Tyrone is in Northern Ireland and on the Find a Grave website, listed under 'Northern Ireland' as well.

Hope that helps.
Have a safe trip Robert,
Blessings to you!

RE: Imogene
You are welcome, Bob I was glad to do it. The person who put up the memorial for her has so many personal photos posted that the gravestone photos wont show on the memorial page. Two of the photos she has posted are just alike, just taken different dates. I think that sometimes people forget that this is Find a Grave, not a personal photo album. I just thought I would let you know about that. Have a great day, Mark

RE: Josiah Klingensmith
Robert - I have the info about your Samuel George Klingensmith. The odd news is - we are related on about 3 levels. Samuel's father was JOHN who married SARAH (RUPERT) - John's father was JACOB who was married to NANCY (CALDWELL)(they are in South Bend Cem. as well) and Jacob's father was JOHN HANS PHILIP married to ANNA BARBARA (BROADSWORD) -- Hans & Barbara would be our in common grandparents. However -- we are related by RUPERT too & sad to say the Rupert's are a VERY confusing bunch of kin. All of this info is on my Ancestry tree - if you have access, if not send me your email & I'll try to get you all that you need. There will be TONS !
Also - Thank you for fixing the info for Josiah.

"Mac" is 93 now, living in a senior citizen home in Sacramento, bed all of the time. I live in Florida and have visited her at least twice in the last 8 years. She is my second cousin. I am in touch with her daughter during the year and received a Christmas card from the both of them.

Most of my McKinney information is on Might I help you?
