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.

Grave stone photo for Mary Roesch
Just a note to see if you have a grave stone photo for Mary. A grave stone photo of her husband is on her memorial - 9530240. If not, that is ok. Thank you, Kathy

Michael Gilhooly
Michael was 91 when he died.
I am from the Gilhooly family
I have over 70 Michael Gilhooly/Gilhooley tied to my family.

My ggg grandfather Michael Gilhooley from Leitrim and Roscommon Ireland his families were all separated during immigration.
Michaels 16 siblings all left Ireland and some went on to Scotland Glasgow, Blairgowrie, Perthsire, to London, England, some France and Germany and Canada. Many emigrated into the United States Chicago, Illinois, Florida, Boston, Connecticut, new Hampshire, Philadelphia, New York, Jersey, New England, Maryland, Illinois, Missouri, Boston. Many of the families had changes in their spellings
and Gillooly/Gillooley hence how I got my spelling.

My ggg grandfather Michael was one of 16 kids. He had 15 of his own kids they all kids. My gggg grandfather Peter had 14 or 15 brothers.

There should be well over 250 of our descendants.
My ggg grandfather Michael had a brother Michael and a son Michael and a grandson Michael and a nephew Michael

re Hitzelberger's
Hi Sandy,

Valentine Hitzelberger #102886896 was the 1st husband of Barbara Mehl Hitzelberger Heintz #102886909, not child. If this was my error, sorry. Not going thru normal edit because Jackie Gold has an edit here, probably the same thing.

Have a Happy New Year,

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.
