Bio and Links
Bio Photo Daughter of Arthur L. Blakeslee (1917-1993) and Dorothy M. Sturdivant (1918-2010). I am a descendant of Capt. David Blakeslee and his son Reuben. I am also looking for any information on my paternal Grandmothers family; Merilla Hatch from Crawford Co., PA. Also my Maternal Grandfathers family; Charles Bonner Davis of Greene Twp, Erie Co., PA. I was born and raised in Erie, PA. Many of my siblings have moved to the gulf coast of Florida.
I enjoy genealogy and photography. i Collect Dolls, doll related items and postcards of Dolls or Historical Sites. Will add photos of memorials in the Erie area if requested and time permits. I work full time as an Accounting Manager and take care of a few Senior Citizens.
If I have listed a memorial of your loved one and it includes an error or incomplete information (i.e. date or place of birth, death, spelling), feel free to let me know and I will make the correction

FAMILY NAMES: These are the names I am researching. If you know of any connections to these names please drop me a note.

and many others in my extended family.

My Maternal Side of the family were founders of Wesleyville, Erie Co., Pa. My Paternal Side were involved in the Founding of Spartansburg, Crawford Co., PA.

I live in Erie County, PA and have been doing extensive genealogy research in Erie County since 1964. I have researched extensively Wales Cemetery, Greene Township, Erie Co., PA and I am currently working with the "Wales Cemetery Association" in documenting the burials in this Cemetery.

Rose Hill Info
hi Carole,

I too am a direct descendant of Reuben and David Blakeslee. My line traces down through William to Eva Blakeslee who married Alexander Bennett.

I am trying to find any information on early burials in Rose Hill. My Bennett line has many burials in Rose Hill, but the one I need specifically is Wolcott Bennett. He is buried next to his son, Nelson. Wolcott and his wife, Sarah, are there, but the tombstone contains no birth or death information. Wolcott died some time between 1860 and 1870. Sarah between 1850 and 1860.

Any help you can offer would be appreciated.

thank you,
Rebecca Bennett Biddle

Hello Carole I posted a photo postcard death notice on this young man. I came across it among my great aunt's and my grandmothers photos, I'm thinking he or his family may have been friends......I sent a correction request as he was listed as "daughter"

Thank You!
Hi Carole,
I am finally getting around to activity on Find A Grave, thanks to your gracious help last year.

This morning I added a picture of my father, Harold Dallas Kelley, to his Find A Grave page.

I'll never get done with our genealogy. Maybe you have noticed that too.

St John the Divine Cemetery
Saw your comment on Margaret Simon in this cemetery. I added a picture of the cemetery today. It is on the west side of Hannon Road about .4 mile south of US Route 20. Note, the cemetery is fenced in.
