Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired health care professional who is interested in genealogy among other things. I grew up on Long Island, went to school in Texas and Georgia, lived and worked in North Carolina and have recently relocated to South Carolina. I enjoy hiking and am always pleased to come across old, out of the way, cemeteries. I've been trying to locate family graves in Pennsylvania and was using Find a Grave when it occured to me that I would enjoy helping others trying to find graves.
Please note that as of 2015, I will no longer be making edits to any memorials that I have created unless accompanied by documentation of the edit requested. In absence of documentation, I invite you to request that I transfer the memorial to you for you to do with as you like. I am not a "numbers" person.

Unmarked Graves
Wow! There were so many, I decided not to annotate anything. It is possible, I guess, there could be that many unmarked graves. But I suspect people have entered relatives/spouses of people already there, not knowing if the added person belonged there or not ????

THANKS for trying to find their graves!

RE: Shady grove
Hi! Can you send me a list of their names, and I will annotate their memorials as "unmarked" or "not at this cemetery"

Many thanks!

RE: Shady grove
Pam: Thanks for your reply & volunteering. A while back, I took (what I thought was) the entire cemetery. The rows were not "plumb," and it was easy to miss many. After I posted the photos I took, put in a photo request for all the ones without grave photos.

It's possible some of the people are not really buried there (some contributors put husbands with wives, and vice-versa by default).

Anyhow, if you can find any of them, it would be wonderful for those poor descendants---who may never know what their ancestor's grave looks like!
Thanks for all you do!

Glad to hear from you again!

RE: Maria Anna Klipperhahn
You're very welcome.It's disappointing not to find markers so I try to at least show the area if I can. Take care.

RE: Maria Anna Klipperhahn
Sorry about the confusion. I don't know if you read the comment I wrote to the top photo, but there was no grave stone with Maria's name on it at the location given. Apparently hers is an unmarked grave.

What I did was to photograph the general area where lot R-171-5 might be by showing that a nearby stone was marked R-171-2. Grave lots sometimes have either 6 or 8 graves in them. That would be 3 in the front row and 3 in the back or 4 in the front row and 4 in the back.

I estimated grave R-171-5 would be in the back row somewhere behind the Murphy stone.

RE: Elizabeth Gilcher
Hi Pam,

Can you send me the memorial number? If I see it I can probably figure out where I got the info.

M "Alex" Alexander
Hello again, Pamela! I drew a "blank" on M Alexander with 8 Dec 1845 as birth and/or death. Checked, Family Search, and one other data base without any luck.

Records get very scarce before 1900 when most states began documenting births/deaths. Anything in the 1800 is really scarce.

I fixed his name, and now the FindAGrave Search engine works, so people can find him/her.

There's one more source (but I live 40 miles one way to that cemetery), and that would be to call the church and see who has its historical records.

Sorry more info was not available.

Transferring Back
Hi! Researched Joseph W Price in all the data bases I have access to, but only found a few new things. Posted them in his bio section. Perhaps close relatives will see the memorial some day, and send you an Edit Tab change :)

Thanks for "adopting" him, back
