RE: Henry & Nicie Pruitt Johnson Unfortunately, there are no digital copies of the actual images of the documents that are available for free at the moment. I pulled the information from the transcribed records, which are available online for free. Here are the links, and please feel free to add her obituary via "adding a photo" to her memorial, if you would like to. I know some contributors don't want people to do this, but I don't mind at all. :) Nicie's DC: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/JDBY-5SS Henry's DC: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/JDXG-443 (note his mother is listed as Mary Jane, but this is wrong.) Please don't hesitate to ask for anything else. I try to document everything I can, and I do have some death certificates, (the actual images) for some individuals, but for these, I do not. :)
RE: Cyphers in Graceland It is not a forgotten area, but the cemetery is trying out a section using native species. It was pretty while blooming, but totally obscures any grave markers. Finding these was difficult, but satisfying. The cemetery office staff were a big help. Contact them to find out if there are other family members in Graceland. This section has individual graves as opposed to famuly plots. Any other family, if there, would probably be located in a different section of Graceland. Regards, Bob Lerch
RE: Anna Manuel Hello, I did this cemetery by trying to take photos of all stones, but this cemetery really needs a cleaning, the trees and brush are so thick. Stone next to the Manuel is a Hershberger. This was the only Manuel I had found. Tomake sure on this cemetery, I went to local Historical Society and checked for burials and that was the only one listed on their records. Sorry, maybe some where not marked or check other cemeteries that are local to this one. Do you know if any more died in the area of Ephrata,Pa.? Thanks for email and will keep an eye out for your Manuel's Harry
William Huckeba Hi Todd, you created memorial for my 3rd great grandparents William and Sarah Brown Huckeba in the Old Bethlehem Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery that is currently located behind Calvary Temple Church. I have visited the cemetery and am aware that their graves do not have an inscribed headstone so their location in unknown. I am interested in knowing what records or documents you used to establish that they were buried in this cemetery. Thanks & Regards! Johnie W Huckeba Jr
RE: McPherson/McMaster So Eliza was Samuel's sister, right, Samuel being the oldest child, I think, born in Lancaster. Makes sense, thank you. Years ago my mother drew me a small map of the area around the McPherson farm. We knew that the house my uncle John Ferber lived in was built by the McPhersons (son John lived there with a couple unmarried sisters). It was locally called the Shaner house because of the family who lived in it when the McPhersons died off. Related somehow I know, but I can't recall how exactly due to my over-stuffed brain. My grandfather owned it for a time after the Shaners. Anyway, lower on the hill, toward Sharpsburg, was a section she labeled Dalzell. Makes sense that another daughter married into that family. My great-grandfather owned the very small farm opposite the McPherson acreage, bought around 1900 after he was severely injured in a farm accident and couldn't manage fields and livestock.
Wadsworth Genealogy Club Meeting Hello! I just wanted to say thanks for helping with information on my family member yesterday. He was the one I thought might be a prison guard in Moundsville, WV. Hopefully I can make it to another meeting in the near future. I work all sorts of hours now that the holidays are approaching and it's high retail season!
