Does she have a headstone this soon after death or do you want a picture of the funeral home marker that may be there?

Famous Persons Listing
I wanted to ask you about claim to fame. Right now Lehrton only has 1 and I was wondering if you thought Frank Holloman, Horace Stansel, Jane Rule
Burdine, or Robert Crook might qualify?

RE: Lehrton Cemetery memorials.
Thanks Robert. I am enjoying the project. Just about to finish up the new section and moving on to the Old section next week.
I was amazed at the number of people that I remembered too. As the graves are getting older -- not so much.
Of course anyone from Ruleville remembers Shorty. My dad had the old Mustang with so many miles on it in his back lot for awhile. (I had my eyes on it) Not sure what ever happened to it.
Once I get further on with the project I will probably have questions that you can answer for me.
