Memorial Transfers
Thank you Don for transferring the memorials of Ebenezer Lunn and Sarah Harding Lunn to me. Much appreciated! I realized I should of gone one generation further back and requested the memorials of Henry Proctor Lunn and Alvira McGee Lunn also, so I'll be putting the request in.
Thanks again for all your work!!

Gertrude Adrian Cunningham VanAtta
Thank you so much for posting the Obit info on Gertrude. My husband was 2nd cousin to Gertrude, descended from Michael J. Adrian #41300670. I have been working on the Adrian Clan, trying to put as many of the passed family into the site. It was a large family so finding some of these folks has been a challenge. The obit you posted for Gertrude explains so much of her history. I took note of her parents. I have more info about them so I will edit their pages with additional info. My goal is to eventually have as many of the family members in but accuracy is so important so it takes a lot of time. I will also search our family files for photos of Gertrude's parents but I don't believe I have any.

Thank you for your work on this site.

Dinah Tenbrook/Dinah Ten Broek
Hi, Don:

The Periwinkle report is not yet out, so in the meantime I have added the following note to the memorial [Carol Kammen, the excellent upstate NY historian, also goes with Ten Broek]:

Note: Contributor Don Short, who has extensively photographed Pleasant Grove Cemetery, has created a memorial for Dinah Tenbrook, Find A Grave Memorial# 164190908. It seems likely that Dinah Tenbrook and Dinah Ten Broek are one and the same. However, since the written record supports the interment of a Dinah Ten Broek, in the interests of aiding researchers this memorial is also maintained and should be cross-referenced with Don's memorial.

Gertrude Kopp/Gus Kopp
Hi, Don

I have just created a memorial for Gertrude Kopp in Pleasant Grove [Find A Grave Memorial# 169800246.] You have previously added a photo of her husband/her headstone to her husband's memorial; if you's like to add it to hers, too, that would be lovely.

Hi Don, I added a photo of Grandma's corrected stone. And I also added a photo to Douglas Keegan's site with his Bronze Marker he never received that was recently installed.

RE: harvey hosier
There are plenty of small cemeteries in this immediate area and all close to where I live.
Parryville, Packerton, Union Hill, St Matthews, Franklin Heights, Dinkey, Big Creek, Bowmanstown, Catholic and we have a small Jewish cemetery next to Bunker Hill Cemetery and that is not all of them.
PS if you have any other photos that need fixing just email them to me.
