Bio and Links
Researching our families has progressed from a hobby to a passion. Family histories are so interesting.

We research mainly Barckley,Johnson,Peterson,Sprague on my husbands side and Yohn,Miller,Detrich,Zeigler,Crider on mine.

We try to enter gravestones where we can as so many have helped us. If possible we will try to obtain additional info for those in need. So do not hesitate to ask and if possible we will look for obituaties,marriage records etc. We live in south central PA and have access to several Historical Societies,Libraries and other records in Cumberland and Franklin Counties as well as a few surrounding counties.

We thank so many of you who have helped us thru the years with photo's and advise on where to find info in so many states.

RE: Mary Cornman Watkins
You may want to take a closer look at the photo posted to the memorial for Mary Cornman Watkins in the Laurel Hill Cemetery located in Weston, MO. Maybe there is a different Mary Corman that stone belongs to instead of Mary Watkins. However, the person who posted the photo seems to have verified by using a cemetery survey dated 1986.

At the bottom of the stone from the photo on the memorial, you can read M-A-R-Y C-O-R-M-A-N. I was just there Monday and you can still read the name Mary Corman on the bottom of this part of the stone.

I am sending you a copy of the same photo attached to the memorial with the lighting and contrast slightly adjusted and typed letters below the engraving. Perhaps that will help you see for yourself.

If it was me, I would add the alternate spelling as an option in the notes to assist other possible researchers... especially if it is known to be a variation other members of the family adopted.

RE: Mary Cornman Watkins
The spelling carved on the stone is clearly Corman.

Perhaps this "alternate" family spelling should appear in notations since it is known that some family members did make the change. Even if the stone was carved in error, this would at least allow future searchers to consider the possibility.

I am not related and have no interest other than accuracy of photos I have taken. I did't post this one since there was one already on the memorial.

RE: Charles L Black
Can you refresh my memory? I did about 50 edits over the course of 2 days and I'm drawing a blank on this one. Please remind me of the details of this edit. Thanks

Hi Ruth,
I don't see where I responded to you. I've basically been out of genealogy commission for the past two years due to illness and cataracts. Doing better and trying to catch up a bit. Unfortunately, I don't have anything on Hugh Barckley's parentage - just his wife Elizabeth Kirkpatrick. I'm going to make note of your thoughts though and try to make some time to investigate that a bit further. Good to hear from you. Marji

Wm and Mary Barkley
Hello, I searched Forest Lawn's online archive and Wm and Mary are listed in the same lot as daughter Hattie Jane. Have not looked for the graves yet. The spelling is different. I created memorials for them and will transfer to you.

Kathy Subilosky
Hello Marvin & Ruth

I fulfilled your request for Kathy today, and per your note, looked for her husband Edward. I am sorry to say my contact at the cemetery has no record of Edward being there. While photographing Kathy's marker, I noticed there is an unmarked grave next to her, but with the cemetery having no record of him, who knows?

Kevin
