Bio Photo I enjoy researching the genealogy and history of my family. Names include Krotz, Sanner, Lamb, Grove, Grimes, Broderick, Rohrer - all with roots in Western PA or MD.

Always happy to add information or transfer memorials. I will respond to requests within several days, so please do not be alarmed if it takes more than one day for your request.

While I'm always glad to add information, if you would like something changed, please provide the information to me i.e. include the family member memorial ID numbers or the text of an obituary that you want included.

RE: Broderick
Okay great Dan, I will keep in touch. I was just going to send a copy of the Broderick line to my cousin Sandy since she met the other Broderick relation. That way she could see how they are both related. Now my mother has a lot of information on the Broderick family. I can send you what I have on but my mom would have so much more. Plus she remembers a lot of them personally.
I'll send you what I have tomorrow...
PS. I live in Wheeling WV now but my parents still live in Crucible Pa.

I just posted the formal pictures of James and Louisa on each of their memorial pages. Maybe your grandfather will recognize them. Also, the Robert Broderick that I was talking about, well his mother Leola is still alive. I think that she and your grandfather are about the same age. Robert says she remembers a lot about the Broderick side. We're hoping that we can talk with her someday.
I can't wait to tell my Mom about your message. She will be thrilled.
Thanks for contacting me,

RE: Broderick

So I guess we are third cousins. Hi cousin. Sadly my grandmother Dorothy has passed away as well as all her siblings. She would have turned 99 in October.
My mother Janice is still alive and remembers a lot of the family. She has done a lot of genealogy and has gone a few generations back on the Broderick side.
The funny is my cousin Sandy just met a Broderick relative at Idlewild Park in Ligonier Pa. His name is Robert Broderick. He is the son of Robert Dale Broderick, 03/22/1918 to 01/1985 who was the son of James' and Margaret Broderick's brother John William Broderick Sr. I think I got that right.... I have a picture of each of my great grandparents too. I will try to post them on their memorials. So stop back and look after I post the. Mike

Hi Dan K.
James Davitt Broderick was my great grandfather. His wife was Louisa Lowden. Their daughter Dorothy Broderick was my grandmother. Her daughter was my mother, Janice Sauers and I am her son.
How are you related?

RE: Irwin Cemetery
I did a web search of Westmoreland cemeteries. Both IC and IC cemeteries were listed. They are not the same.

I'm guessing, but I think some disgruntled findagrave manager deleted all their memorials, because at one time, Lea and Albert's brother had a memorial in IC and now it's removed.

I've recreated Lea's brother and parents in IC because I did find corroborating records that that's where their buried.

Hopefully someone will find a trascript of who's buried there and (re)create the memorials.

RE: Helen Shannon
Hi Dan,

Thank you for getting back to me. I do not know if you have ancestry. com or not, but I sent you the information on the census this morning. Helen's Father was George, but not the George that you listed. Her Father died in 1925 soon after she was born. I sent you his findagrave # which is in the same cemetery that she is buried. There were 2 different families in 2 different locations in West Virginia (Wayne county and Wood county). . I found both families in the census and Helen was not in the household for the Birdie you listed. I did not find her Mother on findagrave. I found Helen in the 1930 census in Parkersburg, WV. The siblings in that census matched her obituary. Please correct the Father George and remove the wrong Mother Birdie. They are not the correct parents. If you need me to send the findagrave # for the correct George, let me know. Thank you.
