RE: Platts
I don't recall the section, but they are along the path right in front of the chapel. Also, I photographed three other graves there. Margaret Platt (1893-1899), Ralph Platt (1887-1894), and Mary Diane Bellen (1934-1975), I presume she's Wilber's granddaughter.

This couple; William H and Jane McIlvaine McClelland, both used the 'd' at the end. Their son, Jr., as well as his sons are the only family member that didn't as I have found.
There is a stone in a cemetery called Crooked Creek for Jane McClelland. This memorial is #72242484. I submitted the edits for birth date and place and death place. The death date doesn't appear to match. The stone is very difficult to read. The McClellands lived in Union Township I believe according to the census. Tricia did fine the couple in the Greenwood books. The names of other McClelland in other families are not recorded by me. With all these facts what is your opinion. Would you be willing to go check out the stone? That is a big job I know and beyond the call of Find A Grave duty. Hey thanks. My email is

Greenwood Cemetery Plots

Thank you for all the information on my photo requests for my family in the Greenwood Cemetery. I've marked each of their memorials with the note that there is no headstone marker. I appreciate all your effort… Thanks.

RE: Platt Families
Cousin Rick; I THINK
I also sent this note to my children via e-mail.
I am descended from James' son, James Jr. married to Susanna Buzzard.

Do you have any idea what port our James Platt entered when he came to the United States? I never thought to search in the New England States. At one time Connecticut claimed the Northern part of Pennsylvania, including Luzerne County. I listed James Platt to be born about 1760.

My husband and I lived in Luzerne County between 1965-2008.

Have you ever wondered if Agnes Nancy Dixson Jameson,row 12 grave 9 and buried in Beach Grove Cem., Beach Haven, Luzerne County, might be a direct ancestor of yours? I have. My maiden surname is PLATT. The earliest ancestor I have located is James Platt Sr. married to (possibly) Elizabeth Jameson. James Platt was also from Ireland; I have seen his Naturalization papers in the Venango County Courthouse. Since then,those papers have been lost.
"In the matter of the application of James Platt praying the Court to be admitted a Citizen of the United States of America. Petitions of the Intentions of the applicant Filed 5th February
A.D. 1811.
Application granted and Oath administered
Certificate issued February 1811."

Thank you for your interest in old stones and in sharing them.
