Gary,
I noticed you created Jonathan's memorial. Are you any relation to the Randall's? Johnathan was my third great grandfather. The memorial lists his parents as Jonathan and Massy Randall. Jonathan Randall Sr.'s memorial list parents of Jonas and Sarah Randall of Baltimore. I contacted Prserving the Past, the creator of Jonathan Sr.'s memorial. He was sure they are not buried in Riverside. I live outside of Baltimore now, and if Jonathan and Sarah are buried there I would love to find them.

Hi Gary,
Question for you...what documentation do you have an Barbara's birth location? Other than the obit stating Maxatawny Township (which covers more than just Kutztown), I've got two of her sisters claiming that is incorrect, and one of her daughters naming Allentown as her birthplace. I've yet to get my hands on her birth certificate to have something more concrete to go with. Would you be willing to share your source??

Aha - another of those cases where the birth year makes one a little younger!

Thank you very much for the information.

Your edit:
Birth Date:
Oct. 16, 1889

My question - her stone has a birth year of 1891. Can you please refer me to a source for the October 15, 1889 date of birth? Thank you for your help.

Did you know that Milton was a veteran of the Civil War?

Enlisted on 2/22/1864 as a Private at age 20.
On 2/22/1864 he mustered into "A" Co. OH 4th Cavalry
He was Mustered Out on 7/15/1865 at Nashville, TN with his company. He was wounded in the arm at the Battle of Selma, AL on 4/2/1865.

Would you happen to have a picture of him that we could put in our files?
