RE: John Root You are very welcome. Many stones in this cemetery are "buried" under grass and/or mud. Others are very old and unreadable. The majority are in good shape. Always glad to honor a Veteran.
John H Hoover I need to fix something, Carrie Elizabeth Hoover would of been his grand-daughter. She was the daughter of his son Ira Wesley Hoover. And please disregard the headstone. I found a copy of it all ready. Thank you again, Jackie
John H Hoover Hello. I am researching my family tree and was wondering if your John H Hoover could be one of my great grandfathers. My John Henry Hoover was born April 4, 1844 and lived at 27 Mumma St in Highspire, PA. He passed Aug 2, 1919 in Highspire. This is from his death certificate. His wife was Elizabeth A.Peters. They had 9 children. They also lived on Second Street in Highspire by the 1910 Census. One of their children was my great grandmother Carrie Elizabeth Hoover-Leedy, she was married to Joseph Kerr Leedy. Both are buried in Highspire Cemetery. Also I was told John H Hoover was buried in Highspire Cemetery also. If your John H Hoover is mine, could you get a picture of his grave. Would so appreciate it. Thank you, Jackie
RE: Isaac M. Grandon Thanks, Tony. I will be happy to have any confirmation (or refutation) that this was his middle name. You may have noticed that his wife's mother's maiden name was McGlumphy or McClumphy. Which leads to the question: were they cousins? I have not seen anything but "M." except for your Find A Grave posting, even on his draft card. Guess I should order his military record, but hate to spend the money, since he is a distant collateral relative. Thanks for your research. - Sally
I'm curious where the middle name for this man came from. I have not found any sources which show anything but the initial M. If the middle name is correct, it is the same as the maiden name of his wife's mother - were they cousins of some sort?
RE: Benjamin Oliver If you would give me your mailing address, I'll send you some good Px of Benjamin and his family. I named my youngess son Benjamin Oliver Stine. I have two books (Both the same) on the 18th PC. Do you have a copy? Call me (717) 243-4468
RE: Joseph Stiffey It appears that someone went through the entire cemetery and created a memorial for every headestone they could read. For every stone I found, the text was already on the memorial page. I also found the STIFFEY who has a memorial and photo already. There were several unmarked plots at the general location as well as an illegible marker but I think there were enough letters for me to determine that it was not a STIFFEY. So I think that there were at least two of us who walked through the entire cemetery, reading all the names.
