Bio and Links
I joined Find A Grave because I wanted to find where my ancestors were buried. Then I learned that I could link them for not only me, but for anyone else interested in the same line. I now really enjoy creating non family member memorials and linking their family members.

My maternal 3rd great-grandparents were William and Elizabeth Short Dodson.

My maternal 2nd great-grandparents were Andrew Jackson Rebecca Williams Dodson Sr.

My maternal great-grandparents were William and Ida Flack Dodson.

My maternal grandparents were James (Jessie) Joseph and Helen Elizabeth Demuling Dodson.

I'm descended from the Laughlin, Murphy, and McGinnis lines from Onoville, N.Y and the Demuling and Dodson lines in Pennsylvania.

My wife is descended from Isaac and Lucinda Hill Brock from Texas and the William T. and Sarah Sallie Johnson Gaston line from North Carolina.

Ah, you were so close to their gravesites and now you're so far away! Thank goodness for Find a Grave so you can see the stones. It's a suitable substitute until you get back to the area.

That's wonderful to hear that Abbot Placid will be sending you biographies.

Happy Holidays!

Thanks so much for circling back to me with what you learned from the Abbey. I also see where Rev. Haas is mentioned in the memorial for his nephew, Rev. Rosswog.

Have you visited their grave sites?

Thanks for your reply. I looked at the stone, which is not in the best of shape, and believe I have the birth date incorrect. I'm going to change it to 1866 as well as link to the parents you indicated.

As far as I know the four dates in Latin are for birth, professed, ordained and death.

Interesting stuff!

Would you check the edit you sent me for P. Haas: Father, #114061087 and Mother, # 114061099. The parents would have been around 63/64 years of age when he was born in 1888!

Edit requests
THANKS for the edit requests you have submitted. I honor almost all requests (no matter what your relation) for transfers so if you want any of the these memorials please let me know. If they were created by Fred King chances are I am not related (with very few exceptions) and am always willing to pass the memorials on.

St. Michael's-Sarah Cramer
I received a auto email from findagrave that a photo request of mine was completed for Sarah. When I accessed the memorial I saw you had posted her death certificate, and I'm glad you did, but you coded it as a photo of her grave thus the auto email I received.

There is no headstone on her memorial. What I ask you to do is please delete the certificate and resubmit it as "other" from the list of options.

That way the photo requests we remain active.

Dave: I was deleting old messages and kept yours in case I was heading back to Frewsburg cemetery. I don't think I'll be back. However, I go to the library often to hunt for obituaries. I'd be happy to look for one for William F. Laughlin if you still need it. Do you still need it?

If you call the office to find out the section and lot number I will try to locate the gravestone to take a photo for you. Without that information however it would be next to impossible to find since the cemetery is quite large. Let me know when you have the information.
