RE: John Merritts
Glad to be of help.
Photographing markers that are fading and barely readable are my favorites. Making a visual record before they become impossible to read makes me feel that I am helping to preserve the memory of that person. Thanks for the request.

RE: William H. Troup
I uploaded the photo, then realized you had him listed with a different rank. I did not find him in the "new" Newport Cemetery when I walked it over the past 3 years, but there are sites without stones. I just started walking the "old" cemetery (I didn't realize no one had uploaded anything for it yet), so will keep my eyes open for possibly another William Troup.

As always, you are quite welcome. I'm glad to be able to help document history.

RE: John McKelvey
His name is not listed in the cemetery records as being buried there either, but I am told there were a lot of mistakes and omissions re the early burials. I will keep him on my list for when I'm out walking. Bonnnie

John McKelvy
The records for the Lehighton Cemetery had no record for a John McKelvy. There was only a Charles McKelvy who died September 10, 1923. Bonnie Emmert

RE: Daniel Sweigard
Good morning Joe,

Sorry I took so long to respond to your message. Busy time for me, however your message was amusing and made me laugh. Guess the name Sweigard will be one that you won't forget. Sure would have been interesting had you happened upon a third Sweigard that day. Would have loved to have been present when you explained your reason for him owing you a beer.
Hope you have a wonderful day Joe. Always enjoy corresponding with you.

Hi Joe,

Well now that we got everything straightened out someone else claimed the request for the photo of Daniel. Guess I should have just gotten the photo and put it on for you without waiting for a request.

Anyway....hope you have a great holiday weekend.

Brenda & Pete

RE: Philip Schuck
You are welcome, if there is anything else you need please let me know. I'm a local so if you have an address I can help you and send you a picture of where he grew up as well.
Talk to you later,

RE: Thomas Helmit
Whoops! My apology. I visited this cemetery over the weekend; my grandmother and father are buried there. There were a couple of requests for photos on Findagrave - 2 with the surname Bobbitt (including Thomas). I uploaded the photo of the stone for Bobbitt to your relative's record in error. I did look for a stone for Thomas Helmit but could not find one. There were several old stones that were difficult to read. Sorry I could not help.

PS, I removed the photo.
