Bio and Links
I started with cemeteries as a place to walk, but I started to notice the condition of the older stones, including my own ancestors. I didn't want others not to have these valuable bits of information to bring their own families together. So I walk and take pictures, the best of both worlds.

I give my permission for the use of my pictures for your family's search.

Hi Sandra,

Could you attach your photo for the tombstone of Florence Wehan Laughlin, Memorial #102314147, to the memorial for Florence Laughlin, Memorial #8737867? I am attempting to get rid of the duplicate memorials I created, when changes wouldn't get done. Now that Find-A-Grave changes are very easy now, with inactive member memorials, I'm getting rid of my duped memorials.

Anna Hanna
Anna was born Amelia Mirah Stauffer in Lancaster, Pa. in 1840. She was living with a son in Erie when she died in 1906. Her husband was living in Veterans home and hospital in Ohio at the time. He lived to age 85 and died in McKeesport in 1919.

Appreciate your efforts to record burial locations for others!

Anna was my great grand mother on the maternal side of my family.

Phillip Diefenbach (1840-1926)
Your Find-a-Grave record for Phillip Diefenbach (1840-1926)says that his parents were William & Elizabeth Diefenbach. But the following bio in the HISTORY OF ERIE COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA........ book published in 1884 by Warner & Beers, has a bio of Phillip saying his father was also named Phillip:

PHILIP DIEFENBACH, Alderman 6th Ward, Erie, was born in Erie City, Nov. 21, 1840; son of Philip Diefenbach, a native of Germany, and a tailor by trade, who immigrated to Erie, where he still resides, in 1838. He has reared five children, OUR SUBJECT BEING THE ELDEST. He acquired his education in Erie City, and worked with his father, who was manyufacturing oil cloth, till 1864, when he embarked in the grocery business, which he conducted until 1878. Mr. Diefenbach was elected Alderman in 1872, which office he still holds; is a prominent member of the German society, Erie City; in politics, is a Republican. His father was leader of the German St. John's, and afterward of the German St. Paul's Church choir.

Thanks so very much for all of the new memorials you posted! I found some relatives and have already sent you a few edits (the new way). I hope you will be able to process them soon.

Regards and thanks again.

add maiden name
Re: Find A Grave Memorial# 61380123. Florence's maiden name is Lapple. Daughter of Eunice R. Sturgeon and William Christian Lapple. Thankyou. Your work is invaluable.

Thanks for the transer --
"Margarete" turned out to be Margaret E. -- I would say the gravestone carver did not make the space very large between the first name and Middle Initial! I thought it was an unusual first name. Thanks again! Edie
