I have been tracing my wife's and my family ancestors for about 16 years. The family surnames I am researching are as follows: Flannery,(Philadelphia), Merritt, (Philadelphia), Mollenhauer (Liverpool, England; New Jersey and Philadelphia), Potter, Bishop, O'Neill & Entriken (Chester County, PA), Ristine (Philadelphia), & Taylor (Philadelphia), Treen (Philadelphia or New Jersey), & Weir (Maryland & Chester County, PA)
etriken check the Jefferson county genelogical society info and none listed. they get their info from the local mortuary here in port townsend. can verify via web site wajcgs.org for more info about this.
Entries being deleted Bob, I had written to you sometime ago about one of contributors refusing to transfer management of your families grave and you resubmitted it. Have you noticed them being deleted and in my case even took my research information and adding it to their entry as though it was their research. Linda Stahl
All I have to do now is to find the grave! That is not always easy - this is a huge cemetery and it can be difficult to determine whether you are in the right section. However, I have found a detailed plan of the cemetery in Liverpool library which shows the location of each grave number within the section so that might be very helpful in finding the grave.
I hope to visit Anfield again soon and will let you know how I get on
Transferring management I noticed that you had a problem having a transfer of management of graves from Ancestor Hunter in July 2013. Would you tell me if you ever resolved that issue. I also ask for this person to transfer management and they refused.
RE: Taylor Famly Graves I really appreciate the detailed response. Even though most of these responses are not for our family I really am interested.
Our power was out for a couple of hours during an intense storm and were on generator power. Comcast was down and we didn't have internet. Apparently Comcast doesn't buffer messages.
It seems like we got nipped by the 'flush stone syndrome'. It happens from time to time. They have a habit of collecting dirt, leaves and debris and becoming out of view. If we know we are dealing with a surface level stone we will scuff up the area looking for it. The area where the lot is in Mount Peace gets a beating from the mowing and digging equipment. We had to dodge mud ruts when we were looking. The cemetery is working to fill in the low areas and that temporarily makes things worse.
I am happy that you had the photos. We are about 300 miles away but we are really familiar with the cemetery, being there several times. I have a grand uncle buried only 17 graves away. Regards -JohnF
