RE: Swisher-Swymeler - Fairview Cem
As far as I can remember, those were the only names on that monument -- except obviously I believe Swisher was carved on it somewhere. The problem is that I don't have a photo of the surname on it, or a note, though I wouldn't have put the memorials up with that surname if I wasn't sure at the time it was the right one. As soon as the snow has melted off, I will go up and have another look; it is right near one of the roads so even if the place is muddy from the snow melt, it ought be pretty accessible. I knew when I put the memorials up that there would be questions, and that is fine with me; I wanted them to be found by their family; the monument itself is kind of forlorn in a way.

FWIW, I have found a "foreign" family with one of my surnames. They lived in Chester County long enough to bury two children here then went back to Michigan. Figuring them out too quite a bit of work.

RE: Swisher-Swymeler - Fairview Cem
If Emarine and Louetta are daughters of Laura Swymelar, then she had Emarine at the age of 11 and Louetta at the age of 14. I don't think that is too likely, which is why I guessed that they, Laura and Samuel were all siblings. It is, unfortunately only a guess, but it was the best I could come up with give the data on the memorial.

RE: Swisher - Fairview Cemetery, Coatesville
I've been told by someone in the Fairview cemetery office that the early records for that cemetery are not complete, particularly for the earlier dates. I record what I see. If there is not a photo attached to a memorial I have posted, you can request a photo and I will add it to the memorial. In the case of your inquiry, I posted photos on the memorials for Emarine and Louetta as well as Samuel Swisher and Laura Swymelar, all of whom are listed on the same memorial.

Please check the memorials for the two Swishers, also those of Laura Swymelar and Samuel Swisher. Those names were all on the same monument, and my best guess is that Louetta and Emarine were Swishers along with Samuel, and that Laura's maiden name was Swisher.

RE: James Roland Cowan
It appears from what I am seeing today that James Roland Cowan's Memorial listing was made by one
DK O'Neill Ward Neff whom has also posted a copy of James Missouri State Death Certificate which states his father was Andrew Cowan of Pennsylvania.
Of course you may have already figured that out since this Message is almost a month old and I just saw it today,(2-12-14).

Thank you for the nice email message. I am always happy when I can help someone else. I have had a lot of help from others as well. I hope to get back to that cemetery again, and I will surely double check the spelling! thanks again.
