RE: Philip Beck (1776-1841) # 52352561
Thanks Don. The Beck line get rather confusing but hopefully I can get it all straightened out. Many thanks for the transfer! :)

Philip Beck (1776-1841) # 52352561

I was wondering if you would mind if I request a transfer of this memorial to me or request a merger with mine which I created in 2004 (at the time I create it I listed his last name as Beck- it is my understanding that he changed it later from Beck to Peck).

Philip Peck is brother to my 4X great grandmother Anna Maria Beck #9295117 who married Jacob Reimel.

Here is a link to my memorial to Philip Peck

I hope you don't mind. Many thanks,

RE: Anita Reed
I have seen something happen like that a couple of times. When a person "Suggests an edit for relationships" the screen displays both the established links and blanks. Very occasionally I have seen the program blank out the established link[s] when forwarding the new suggested link. Sounds like something like that happened here, as I made no suggestions about her father. Anyway, it looks like the link to her husband has now been established via another route, and all is well in Pleasant Grove!

John D Lewis
Mabel Snover Lewis #140111966 is listed as being the wife of John D Lewis.

She was also supervisor music & art teacher in Covington, PA in 1908-1912. It could have been longer but the records I found were for those dates.

John D Lewis was born May 23, 1888, son of Eber Lewis and Marcella Harned. died 14 MAR 1951 Sayre, Bradford, Pennsylvania, USA.

His death certificate says he was buried in Gray Cemetery on 17 Mar 1951. I don't find him on your list. Do you know if he is buried there?

Thanks for the Meeks pics
There should be a fourth marker there for Lois Jean Meek.

Someone created a virtual cemetery entry for her because they clearly did not know where she was buried. It is here:

I've tried contacting them to no avail and I'm not sure how to get the picture and the correct cemetery sorted out. Perhaps you can help? She is the sister of Donald Meek, daughter of Howard and Lois Meek.

Thanks so much
