Not sure how that photo may have helped but I am glad. Wish I had gotten this message a few days sooner. I spent about 2 hours in and around section 3 on Monday upgrading many of the pictures I added about a year ago in the nurses section 21 which is just below and to the left of Mr. Drennan's section. Of course all of the section's are filled with great men and woman but section 3 is one of the more special section's. I have been out there a lot on sunny days the past few weeks trying to load up my computer with photos before winter settles in. Feel free to ask me for anything you need as I am out there all the time. If nothing else I can add some beautiful spring photos on a quiet Sunday morning in a few months. Just added 60 incredible fall photos of Arlington for my friends on facebook just the other day. Have relatives on both ends of the cemetery but the place has special meaning well above and beyond that.

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.
