West Grove Friends Cemetery
Thank You for assisting with family connections at West Grove Friends Cemetery. I have finally finished uploading all the photographs for readable markers and will begin working on family connections and bios next. I do use the death certificate information to correct and enhance the data entry fields but have made it a rule not to cut and paste the exact listing from Ancestry into the memorial, primarily because I have noted frequent and significant transcription errors including incorrect name spellings, dates of birth/death, locations, etc. This is likely due to poor handwriting on the original certificates and transcribers that are unfamiliar with town and family names. Just wanted to let you know that I do receive the messages and utilize the information if I have not been able to track down the certificate myself. Thanks again.

Sgt Herbert J. Thomson, Sr.

I've been research which of my family members have memorials on here. Those that don't I've been adding myself. Sgt. Herbert Thomson, Sr. #22799088 was my uncle and it appears that you added and maintain his memorial. I was wondering if you would be so kind as to transfer management of his memorial to me so I can update it. His widow, my Aunt Jean who is still alive, would like me to do so.

Best regards
Robert Masten

Susan, David is buried in the correct cemetery, he died in Bradford Co, and is buried in the Windfall cemetery Bradford Co, and if there is a Windfall cemetery in Mifflin Co, it is not listed.

I made your corrections manually so I could keep you initial notations. No wonder I didn't find the obit when I looked for it. I'll try again, unless you already have it?

I claimed a request for a photo of Michael Gildea. He shares a marker with Margaret and Florence M and Helen Lacko. If you want photos for them put in a request.

Ms Susan,

I wanted to thank you for listing my 6th Great Grandfather,
Abraham Short #8143191
at the Pencader Cemetery in Delaware.

We were able to come up and see it a few years ago. I wonder if you would possibly transfer ownership to me at
David & Renee Gillespie # 46931384
We have a bunch of new info to add , and children of his we can link up. I would be so grateful!

your friend

death certs

You can go to this page, enter a valid PA zip code (19344 works for me) click on the blue line: go to Pa archives- and a search engine appears.

find the DC click on View, click on Save to computer, save as- and you can save the image. then you can add it as a jpeg with the add photo icon. Saves the typing.

Your call. See ernest Bernard's entry.

I added the information from the death index to her memorial. Thank you for sending it to me. Just wondering if you are connected to the Fox family? My husband's grand-aunt was married to Ovie Cecil Fox.
