Duplicate Cemeteries in Mechanicsburg
I see you have photo requests open in both Lincoln Cemetery and Upper Allen Freed Slaves (UAFS) Cemetery. Lincoln has a map and I have driven past it. UAFS has no map, but 8 or 9 of its memorials are dups of ones in Lincoln. The location is the same township as Lincoln. Based on other sites on the web that refer to UAFS, I think the 2 cemeteries are the same. I live about 40 minutes away and have occasion to be in that area about once a month. I would be willing to try to do photos at the site, weather permitting. The sign along the road says Lincoln Cemetery. What do you think about trying to get the dups resolved under that name and then asking Find A Grave to merge the cemeteries? UAFS can still be an aka. Please check it out and get back to me. Thanks.

John Tarman information
THANK YOU So much for the John Tarman information. I have a nice obit on his memorial but to have the information from his military record is so much nicer.

John is my great grandfather and I noticed I have some more work to do on his obit with adding children, but thank you again for all you do and personally for the additional info you gave me.

Thomas Crawford 67314282
Thomas Crawford Find A Grave No. 67314282

Somehow two Thomas Crawford’s got mixed up and combined.
1 Thomas C Crawford Find A Grave No. 67314282 created by Dennis Brandt 2011, has a Capt headstone. Can you please link him to his mother Rachael and correct family data added in bio. Has right wife and children, but not right parents.

2 Thomas C Crawford Find A Grave No. 147783029, created by Marcia Lynne vonGunden in 2015 has LT headstone. (Which I think goes to the above grave instead). This one should be deleted, a duplicate.

The first one was created first. Both have the wrong family for THIS Thomas Crawford. I have found the real right one that is the son of James & Matilda and sent an edit to have him connected to James Allison and Matilda and his first wife Justine. I am adding all the information for you both to see the mix up, and the real families.
Thanks so much.


1. Thomas (E) Crawford son of James Allison Crawford and Tabitha White.

2. Thomas C Crawford son of John E Crawford and Rachael Craig.

I think they got confused as they are both born abt the same exact time. (see two census below)

Thomas E:
1850 Lock Haven, Clinton, PA, Alison Crawford 49 born abt 1801 PA, a Gentleman, real estate $14,500, Tobitha 41 born abt 1809, Robert 22, a Merchant, Elizabeth 19, James 17, Emeline 15, George 14, THOMAS 11 born abt 1839, Isabella 7, John Crawford 19.

THOMAS C
1860 Porter, Clinton, PA, John Crawford 51 born abt 1809 PA, a Forgeman, Rachel 45 born abt 1815 PA, THOMAS 22, Margaret 14, John 12, Newton 6.

Notice they are two different families.

The Capt Thomas C Crawford that is the son of Rachael Craig and John E Crawford, is the one that died in Feb. 1901. I have his obituary that lists his siblings and I have his mother’s that mentions him. I will add those. The wife Elizabeth (Green) goes to him, not the son of James and Matilda which she is connected to now.

----------------

Capt. Thomas C Crawford and his family:

THOMAS C
1860 Porter, Clinton, PA, John Crawford 51 born abt 1809 PA, a Forgeman, Rachel 45 born abt 1815 PA, THOMAS 22, Margaret 14, John 12, Newton 6

Capt Thomas C Crawford
The Renovo Record, Feb. 22, 1901.
Captain T. C. Crawford Dead.
Captain T. C. Crawford, a brother of Isaac and John Crawford of this place, died at Peach Grove, Va., on Friday, in the 63d year of his age. He was formerly a resident of Lock Haven, and well-known in Renovo. His remains were brought to Lock Haven, Tuesday, and interred in Highland cemetery. He is survived by one daughter.
As I am sending this proof, can you please connect him to Rachael (the mother), her Find A Grave no is 171888497.
If you don’t feel this is correct I will create a new grave for him and just note that I think they are the same person. Notice the headstone CAPT. the other Thomas has Lieut.

his mother:

Thomas E Crawford died 1915 and is not buried in Lock Haven. This is his Find A Grave, although middle initial is wrong, and the dates are rounded up on both death and birth, but he was born Clinton County, PA. I have sent edits for him to be connected with his parents James and Tabitha.

Thomas Crawford FAG No. 67314282
Thomas Crawford Find A Grave No. 67314282
I see he is with John Alison & Tabitha in 1850, then in 1860 with Rachael. I had sent an edit to connect him to Rachael as the mother, not because he is with her in 1860 census, but because her obituary listed him as her son. Capt. T. C. Crawford.

Just thought I'd let you know that, if you didn't see or read her obit. Thanks.
