Bio Photo First and foremost... Many thanks to the two interpreters that have been a tremendous help: Nicholas Maskalick and Frank Klawonn

Our Motto: No Cemetery too big, no Cemetery too small, if we can't find a marker, it's not there at all!
We, the genealogist and the photographer, really enjoy being volunteers for Find-a-Grave. It is very gratifying to be helping others and making new friends. Also, it is enjoyable seeing the earlier generation's monuments, crypts and markers.
We are a retired military family (USMC). After over 22 years we settled in Pittsburgh, Pa. Charlie is from Tennessee, Mary grew up in Pittsburgh. (Mary won the tossup.)
Thanks to all for the great responses of our findings. They are the icing on the cake!

Hi Mary,
Thanks for the photo of William's marker. He's another Char-Val student. Someone told me that he died in a submarine accident in Hawaii, but I haven't been able to verify that yet. Still looking. I do have his obituary but not the story. Mary

RE: SAMUEL GRAHAM AT CHARTIERS CEMETERY
Mary - I got that date from a family tree on Ancestry.com. The name of the tree is Graham. They have the 1850 census listed as their source, so clearly they have other information since that only has age.

RE: SAMUEL GRAHAM AT CHARTIERS CEMETERY
Hi Mary. I can't link him to my tree. However, I see that there is an Addison Graham (1842-1871) who has a dad named Samuel Graham. Samuel's birthdates are: February 17, 1800 Allegheny County, PA, USA

If you need more, let me know.

Guess what. I found the 5th child of Elizabeth Shannon: Allegheny Cemetery, John Vogle, Sec 32, grave 3121, the same grave where Birdie (Bertha Rachel) and Albert Shannon are buried. I was waiting to hear from the researcher to confirm that the PA, Pittsburgh Death record matched the cemetery record. It did. The Death Record is for John Vogel (different spelling), DOD Feb 27,1874, Mother Lizzie Vogel, father Albert Vogel. My guess is that this was an out of wedlock child (or possibly from an annulled or dissolved mrg) and Elizabeth's father Albert claimed the child. Could I call upon your generosity again, and ask that you again post the death certificate? I hope all is well with the two of you. Mucho gracias.
