|kw||Holy Cross & St. Michaels|
You're quick Steven!
Just in case you didn't read what Hunter wrote just below you~
"I went to Holy Cross Cemetery yesterday. St. Michael's is the first section on the right and including the hill. This is the oldest section. Holy Cross is on the left with newer stones. And the Russian Orthodox (St. Michaels) is way behind, down the hill in back of St. Michaels Polish cemetery."
I hope Diane 'closes' St. Michaels and just re-directs to Holy Cross. Who knows how long it will take Find A Grave administrators to correct it. One woman had a photo request in for 236 Vine Street. That picture would never have gotten taken!

In searching the Pennsylvania State Archives of Coal Miners Killed & Injured, I found Joseph Orechovsky. His name was spelled wrong, listed as Orechkesky, Joe.
He was killed outside the Jermyn #1 coal breaker (colliery) in the Rendham section of Old Forge Pa on May 4, 1907, by a rock car. (cars used to take rock separated from coal inside the breaker to be dumped) He was an outside laborer, Polish, U.S. citizen, 6 dependents, death listed as unavoidable, this was listed on page 93, 5th mining district, microfilm # 3586. (Jermyn #1 was about half mile from my house)

Only Michael is at St P & P. Also Michael did not die in a coal mine but from some lung problems when my dad was just 1 or 2 years old.
Did Joseph die in a coal mine in America or Slovakia??? If he died here in the Duryea area Ill research that and get back to you.
Ill have to check my records but going from memory I think it was my great, great, grandfather Josef that was killed in a Slovakia coal mine 5/4/1907.

|Robert Brotherhood||RE: Re: your suggested edit of a marker written in Cyrillic|
I agree that it made no sense.
As I read Russian, I could not possibly have suggested what you wrote.
I think I now understand what happened (originally?):
Any name that was WRITTEN in Cyrillic to Findagrave was NOT understood by the system/program, but converted into Latin letters, which then did not make sense as a proper name.
And I think the right name is Vasilii which is not recognised as such.
I corrected some 30 names in Russian, sometimes impossible to reconstruct if there was no gravestone to read.
Transcription of names in Cyrillic has changed over time and I think Findagrave should have some rules, so that e.g. Vasilii is not sometimes written as Wasilii as the search program of Findagrave does not give Wasilii when searching for Vasilii. (Or Maslow when searching for Maslov.)
Steven, at St Peter and Paul, both Susan and Michael graves are known. Where is Joseph's? Died May 4, 1907,in Slovakia? Do you know at what coal mine he was killed?
