|Bio and Links|
I've walked many graveyards, seeing stones in bad shape, and wondered what would happen to them as time marched on. This site is a wonderful way to preserve, if not the actual stone, at least a replica by photograph for the future.|
If related and can enhance memorial by adding additional information, please request transfer, stating your relationship. No transfers for collection of a particular family name. If you request transfer, be sure you are committed to a lifetime of maintaining the memorial. Sadly, a few of my older transfers are maintained by contributors who no longer respond.
When sending information to add, include verifiable source. Edits will be verified before being accepted. With quick edits, this is still important so unless evident on memorial, please use the other suggestion and include source. Online trees, such as ancestry's, and family reports/books are not valid sources unless sources are noted.
I no longer add dates of birth calculated from age at death unless a photo of the stone is legible. (I got caught on a couple bad transcriptions which threw off the calculated birthdate).
Links will not be made to memorial in unknown cemeteries.
If you have taken better gravestone photos that what I've posted, please post yours and send a message.
I may try to contact contributors if I question an edit. For those who hide themselves completely by not showing email or allowing comments, my only choice is to decline and hope they resubmit with additional information.
Let me know if you have any questions on my listings - I love a good genealogy search and will try to help if possible!
Happy graving to all!

|Douglas Dudewicz||RE: Mt. Gilead photos|
I checked around the area and there were no other stones nearby with any markings on them. I have about another 1/3 of the cemetery left to walk. I suspect this stone may have been put in well after they had died. The area around the stone actually has few other stones so there are either a lot of unmarked burials or a lot of empty slots.

Hi Linda, I just checked his draft registration and you are right I had not seen that before, however on his Social Security application and claim Index it is Howland, but it also gives a different birth date 29 not 27. So maybe we should stick with Houlan? I'm not familiar with the accuracy of social security info, what do you think?

OK. That was a good idea.

Good Morning--Anna was Philip's first wife. Philip Flamm to Anna Glick married Nov. 21, 1921 and divorced May 16, 1927. About 1928 she married Mr. Shaner and I believe he remarried about 1929 to Magdaline Winter. The informant on his death certificate is Wernersville State Hospital records so figure he was just a forgotten person but research shows he did have living relatives.
Take care, Pat

|Tom Nelson||RE: Frank Houck edit|
Good afternoon! I believe I'm going to "back off" on this one. The place of birth "Boiling Springs" came from the U.S., World War II Draft Registration Cards, 1942 which was prepared under Frank's direction - and misspelled it as Borling Springs! But further research reveals a Florida passenger manifest from 1927 which shows a birthplace of Carlisle, PA. Since both towns are in Cumberland County, I think we are safe in just leaving it at that. And as for "Colorado Springs" as the place of death, I was just going by the "bio" on that same image from above saying he lived there until his death. I realize that's not "proof" so it's OK by me to just leave that blank on his page. Thanks for getting back to me about this. Tom
