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: John Crider
Oh, thanks for adding the info. But don't add it in the Note area, add it to the Bio area and there won't be a restriction of the amount of wording

RE: Centerville Memorial Park
Hi Ruth,

There are a lot of questions in your post. Here some of the answers.

1. For the memorial you indicate (Anna Behrens) you are the manager, so you should go in and change the cemetery information on it. Just click on the "Edit" button next to the word "Burial". Then when you get to the next page search for "Centerville" and that will bring up an option for Centerville Memorial.

2. Regarding the address on the cemetery listing, I don't know why it doesn't have a better address. I think whoever added it didn't have all the information about the two cemeteries being different and not just a continuation of the one.

To change the address on the actual cemetery listing Find A Grave says this in the FAQs:

Can I add a cemetery bio and address information?
Yes. Use the Official cemetery fix/update forum to submit cemetery updates or non-members use

Here is the Official cemetery fix/update forum link:

3. Regarding her location, this is what I see online regarding where she is:

Behrens, Annie (Dietrich), d. 17 Jan 1947, age 58; dau/o William and Eleanor Deitrich; [Ref: CMC] E

Deitrich, Anna, 1888-1947; [on reverse of Deitrich], E
Deitrich, William, b. 1865 [d. 12 Aug 1925, age 61; Ref: CMC] E
wife, Mary Eleanor, b. 1866 [d. 27 Feb 1914, age 48; Ref: CMC] E

So if I were going out looking, I'd find William and Mary Deitrich in Section E and look on the back.

Here is the map if you need it to help you find section E:

Hope this helps! Melisa

RE: Anna S Behrens
Search for cemetery on FindAGrave as Centerville Memorial Park in Newville, Cumberland Co, PA. According to the listing, her grave was in section E, although I don't have a map to know where that section is located. The listing was apparently done with help from cemetery records, so I'm not positive whether a stone was found or not. Did you search in the cemetery that was behind the church? That would be where her grave is located.

RE: Everett Howard Hedges
I'm not sure what you mean by Clyde. The cemetery is in Frewsburg, NY. They have a small library. The large one is in Jamestown, NY the Prendergast Library. It has obits, etc. on microfiche. they might be able to help.

Margaret E Keefer 41467626

You attached a photo to Margaret E Keefer. The headstone clearly says she was the wife of William B, but the findagrave memorial says she was the wife of Jerome H Keefer. I am wondering if you attached the photo to the wrong memorial or if Margaret was married to two different Keefers. I did find trees on indicating that Jerome was married to Margaret Wilson and William to Margaret McDonald.

RE: Dixon family edits
Ruth - this information comes from the burial records of Hillside Cemetery. About 10 years ago, a man named Fred Krege (sp?) walked the entire cemetery and wrote down all the dates on the tombstones and then, went to the library and read every obit that was published plus death records which then connected family members together and he made notations of which family members belonged to whom on this record. These records are now maintained by Whitewater Public Library, Whitewater, Wisconsin and I have obtained a copy from them. I am now entering all those who have died that are on this list into Hillside Cemetery so that their family members can find them.

I am not related to any of the people in this cemetery.
