You may use any gravestone photos I've contributed for any non-commercial use (please include "Photo by DL McCready, used with permission" to your posting). This permission does not include photographs of people (I will consider use of those - send me an email).

I am interested in many family names - the most recent generations of whom are Garner, Grover, Stone, Pulford, Wilson Starry, McCready, Thomas (including maiden names and subsequent surnames of relatives).

Strangers coming together to document and memorialize family histories from cemeteries is a wonderful thing.

Please use the Edit Tab (and then click "Suggest a correction or provide additional information") if you spot an error, to provide additional information, or to request a transfer. I will gladly make corrections or transfer your relative's memorial entry to your care (for anyone not in my family). For transfer requests, be sure to include your Contributor #.

RE: Sarah & Harrison McNemar
Glad I could help. I wish I had scissors to clean up the site first but I was unprepared. The sites I have photographed there previous were not that overgrown. I will likely revisit it in the future and replace the picture with a better one. Enjoy.

RE: Photo Request for Everett Darwin Wilson
Hi Donna!

It took me about two hours and I did photograph the entire place, except for those stones too far into the ground and too worn out to read anything. Looking around, I could tell there are a lot of people that are indeed buried there that have no stones anymore or just have flowers but no identifiable markers so there is a possibility he is there. I am going through all of my pictures and adding who is missing. It might take me a few days to double check it but my initial walk through on the pictures was negative. I did notice some relationships to him through his wife perhaps..the Starry family. if I come up with anything I will let you know!

RE: Lydia Ann Starry
Hi Donna,

Thanks for your response and nice to hear from you. Yes, we are indeed related to some degree at least. Lydia Starry's older sister, Margret, is my 3rd great grandmother. Margret married Henry Stahl in Pennsylvania. I've been working hard on this family for several months now. I'm not sure how much you know already about this family, so I don't know if you are aware they are from Adams County, Pennsylvania. Lydia, of course, ended up in DeKalb County, Illinois, as you know, and so did her younger brother, William David Sarbaugh. He has a memorial on FindAGrave, #63238647, buried in the same cemetery as Lydia. There is good reason to think that Lydia named her son, also William David, after her brother.

You can also find William David (Lydia's brother) in the Illinois, Deaths and Stillbirths Index. He died 5 April 1926

I have yet to find where Lydia's parents are buried nor when they died. Her father, David Sarbaugh, born ~1795 in Pennsylvania. He died sometime before the Aug. 1870 census. Lydia's mother, Mary Stahl, was born about 1799. I have no idea when she died.

The family was in the jewelery trade since the 19th century and had 2 stores called Sarbaugh Jeweler in Hanover and Gettysburg, PA. I found this piece of history while viewing various old newspapers from Adams County, PA.

Do you have a tree on Ancestry.com?

Hope this helps somewhat. As I said, this surname is spelled phonetically many ways on various sources, but I believe Sarbaugh is the spelling this family intended it to be.

My email is knorwood@du.edu . Please feel free to contact me there if you wish to correspond more. I know that Lydia had 4 daughters and I'm curious to know then which is your great-grandmother.

Take care, Donna.
Sincerely,
Kirsten
