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.

Eden Mills, I will be in the cemetery on May 25 and will take a look. Given the dates the stone may be unreadable or lost. The one section closet to the road, the graves were not in the greatest condition.

Will let you know

RE: Audrey Lois Witmer-Paxtang Cem
The Paxtang Cemetery gave me two lots in appreciation for putting the cemetery records on the computer. I listed many but could have missed a few but I doubt they are here. I copied every stone and Clossen Press published my findings and someone copied the book into Find A Grave.

Would you please remove the obit you posted in the photo section of his memorial. Per Find A Grave guidlines Newspaper clippings are not permitted to be posted. See: Find A Grave Help: obituarys.

RE: William and Mary Detrich
Ruth, can you please send me an email at I want to ask you a personal message that is not for the general Find A Grave public. I think I may have worked with your husband and have visited your home years ago.

Are we cousins
I notice that you are managing some of my cousins Find A Grave Memorial Pages which makes me wonder if we are cousins also. My name is Susan Louise Dougherty, I am the daughter of Russell Harrison who is the son of Thaddeus Stevens Dougherty who was the son of Susan Zeigler Dougherty and James Dougherty. Please let me know what you think. Sue Dougherty

RE: William and Mary Detrich
I usually try to be sure to check the back of each marker. I looked back through my video/photos, and I don't have anything for her; however, this marker is back against the woods line, so it doesn't look like I checked the back. I'll put in on my list to check when I go back. I have several that I need to redo photos. It was a sunny day, and I didn't realize how much my reflection came through on the "shiny" markers.

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.
