It told me that I have a pending edit so I am going to request it this way

please link to
father 30864549
mother 30864548

Thank You

By the way I was absent from Find A Grave for about four months because my husband and I were looking for a house. We found one that we love and it's in Quarryville. Actually closer to Georgetown. So now my research will be very much southern Lancaster County related.

Many thanks for the transfer. So I guess we're distant cousins.

Rosella (Booz) Scott (133910164)
Thanks for finding her and connecting her to husband Benjamin Franklin Scott. Their death certificates give exactly the same address as the place of death. Benjamin was a brother of my great great grandfather William H. Scott. You will see I submitted a few edits for Rosella, including month and year and place of birth. I have done a lot of research on this branch of the family. Benjamin and Rosella had several children. I haven't yet found their graves. I notice you have a virtual cemetery for the Booz family, so you may be related to Rosella. If you're not, I'd appreciate a transfer, given my own family connection, as explained above.

Fanny Redman
Sorry, the phone rang and startled me and I hit something on the key board that sent the message. That was the first time. The second time, just now, I don't know what I did.

Anyhow, my source is a release of heirs of David Myers, Fanny's father, which lists her husband as Jacob Redman of Eden Township. I don't know if Jacob was married more than once. Fanny's mother was Mary Homsher Myers. Is this helpful?

If I find anything new on it I'll let you know.

Thanks, Stephanie

The above is my 2nd cousin. If not a relation of yours I would like his transfer. I have additional information and connections to include.

Thank you,

James J. Devlin, SR
Hello Tom,

I would like to add my grandfather's name to children of James and Amanda Franck. James is my great grand father. My grandfather's name is Cornelius J. Devlin. He was born in 1885 in Philadelphia. He died on March 6, 1962. I have been looking for his grave site for some time now. I was at his burial I think in Yeadon but I was only a teenager at the time. I know my grandmother ( Mary T. Lee Devlin) is buried by him. she died in 1973. I would love to find their graves. I have lived in New Hampshire for the last 30 years so I haven't had the opportunity to go find them. I hope to return to the area within the next year. I would appreciate any help on this matter.
Thank you.

RE: Madelina
You are correct. I have requested a link to the spouse on your record and requested the other record to be removed. Thanks for clarifying which one was the original. I don't always remember to look at the date entered.

RE: Obituaries for Anna & Chester Work
Hi Tom,
I am a member of the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society. The LMHS website has an obituary listing on their website that is available to all. Only members can access the actual obituaries. Unfortunately the obituaries do not show the source (probably Lancaster Intelligencer) or the date of publication. They do add the date of death.
I edit the obits to omit the names of children when I know some or all are alive. In the Work case, both sons are dead. I have their obits but do not know where they are buried.
For the Andrews and Wiggins families of Lancaster, I try to add links (to parents and spouses) and obits. Thanks to you and others, many people appear on Find A Grave from the Lancaster area.

RE: Tobias Siegrist
I called the cemetery yesterday and spoke to the caretaker. He doesn't know anything about the Siegrist farm being part of the cemetery. It's possible she was actually buried on the farm. Some people do that. He couldn't find a record of her being in the cemetery. Donna
