Bio and Links
I've been working on genealogy for many years. My main family names to research are Boyer and Geer from western Pennsylvania, but I love the research and will work on any name. I live in southwestern Washington (state), so I depend on others to help with headstone photos I need, and I visit cemeteries here for other people. Thanks!

If you would like to manage a memorial I have entered, please let me know. As long as it's not my family, I'll be glad to transfer.

Steiners in Franklin Cemetery
Dear Doris,
So you are in Franklin and made the headstone photos yourself. So very kind of you! I hope the weather starts to be nice for you and that your mother is doing well, or as well as possible at 94. Please give her my best and tell her I always hoped to make to Franklin one day. My father and many of his family were all born in Venango County PA. A baby brother of his was buried in the Melat Cemetery in Rockland township, Charles Lewis Steiner, # 90686291. Also interred in the Melat (Hanby) Cemetery, were my great grandparents, Elizabeth Ellen "Lizzie" Flowers Stroup # 90686197 & Daniel "Stephen" Stroup # 98572418. My nephew hurriedly went to the Melat Cemetery and did not find headstone for them. He was on a business trip and had just about 10 minutes to look. He was with a group of people.

I do hope you can find the St. Partick's Cemetery, if you have the time to look. I gave you the Find A Grave # for my great aunt, D. Elizabeth Steiner King #139126053, buried at St. Patrick's
So glad that you could get out and go to the Franklin Cemetery. When the weather has been bad, it is so nice to get outside. The Find A Grave member that made the photo of the Franklin Cemetery sign just happened to be from Wichita KS where my maternal grandparents are buried in Sedgwick County KS. I just noticed this today when I read his interesting bio. I wrote to him as he has a virtual cemetery for teachers in the Wichita Public Schools, and a great aunt of mine taught in the Wichita P. Schools in the 20's and 30's. FindAGrave connections never cease to amaze me.
Please let me know how your mother is doing. Thanks again for going to the Franklin Cem. and making the STEINER headstone photos.

Steiners in the Franklin Cemetery
Hi Doris,
Thanks a MILLION for having the photos made of my Steiner family in the Franklin Cemetery, Franklin, Venango County, PA. Especially the ones for my great grandparents, George and Theresa Steiner. I live in Texas and never thought I would never be able to see their headstones. Such a blessing!!! I know you said you live in Washington State, and had contacts that helped you. Please thank the person that made these photos for us. I had just about given up on having my requests fulfilled, but on Find A Grave there are so many nice surprises around the corner, and these photos were a great one for me. I had begun to think, perhaps they were in unmarked graves and am so glad to see they were not. I found their place of burial on their PA DC. One of my Steiner g aunts, Elizabeth Steiner King was buried in St. Parick's Cemetery in Venango County, # 139128053, so this gives me hope that there is a headstone for her too.
Thanks for all your effort & work on FindAGrave!
My best,
Alice Steiner Felgner
