Thank you for the photos!
Thank you for the photos and the changes to the bio of Orin. It was a good idea to put all the name spellings that are out there! Peggy

RE: O'Brien photos
My pleasure, Marianne. I'll give you a "heads up" that I took a photo of every O'Brien that I passed and it looks like most will be new memorials. Will take several more days to finish this cemetery and to transcribe the photos.

RE: Re-Mt Lebanon photos
My pleasure, Marianne. In case you did not notice, I added the same photo for Anna Laughlin to the memorial for Waneata Laughlin. Also, it was interesting that the office had no record of Elizabeth Dewald and when I passed that on to you , you revised the memorial to Elizabeth Bender. Elizabeth Bender was in their records, but would you believe the marker says Elizabeth Dewald!

Photo request for Peter Dewald in Mt. Lebanon Cemetery
I am sorry to advise you that there is no marker in the Large Singles Section 1, Lot 766 of the Mt. Lebanon Cemetery for Peter Dewald. Rather than simply reporting that there is no marker, I will use a photo that shows the empty space in Lot 766 to fulfill your photo request. There will be a descriptive caption with the photo (need to click on the photo to see the caption). If you are not satisfied with the photo, please let me know and I will remove it.

RE: Thanks !!!
Hi Marianne! Great to hear from you. :)
How is your summer going? Been 'cemetery-ing' much?
It's just been so hot so if I go out, it's late afternoon.
But I sure have the itch to get out and do it!
Blessings to you and take care,

Grave Photo
Thanks so much for the photo of Ida's Grave. I know it is an effort to go to these grave sites and help a total stranger by taking pictures of these graves, but us relatives who live way too far to go ourselves greatly appreciate your help. Thank you so very much.

RE: Saint John's #2 cemetery - Pottsville PA
Hi Marianne

Thanks for writing back to me. It's appreciated. So is the trust that I wasn't some goof who was out in the hot sun for too long.

FWIW, I have written Find a Grave on three separate occasions and each time I wrote I gave them a full rundown on their mistakes and what needed to be done to get things back on track. Nothing happened. No replies. No acknowledgments. No changes.

When I wrote to you I also wrote to every memorial page manager who had interred people in the Saint John the Baptist Cemetery #2 that Find a Grave erroneously says is at N.Centre and Clinton streets in Pottsville. Hopefully it does some good.

Be assured that you moved your people to the correct location for Saint John the Baptist Cemetery #2.

Best Wishes

Saint John's #2 cemetery - Pottsville PA
Hi Marianne

Please be aware that any death certificate, obituary or document you have saying a person was buried in St. John's #2 means they are buried in YORKVILLE which is a different cemetery and a different location than what Find A Grave says.

The Pottsville PA cemetery information at Find A Grave is a mess. The cemetery they have as St John's #2 at N.Centre and Clinton streets is actually Saint Patrick's #3.

How did this happen? Apparently, Find A Grave doesn't check to verify cemeteries that people create. I believe somebody created a Saint John's #2 and it snowballed from there. I think it's foolish of Find A Grave to allow people to create cemeteries when they can't find what they are looking for. Folks often don't know the area they are dabbling with and that a cemetery they can't find is actually on the list but is known as another name. That is what probably happened.

St. John's #2 is aka the YORKVILLE cemetery and is also called Saint John the Baptist Roman Catholic Cemetery. Find A Grave says that Yorkville is aka St. John's #3 and that's wrong

St. John's #3 is the now abandoned cemetery at 8th and Pierce streets in Pottsville. Find A Grave calls that St. John's #1

Saint John's #1 was behind the church and is now a parking lot. Those who were interred there were moved to Calvary cemetery in Mount Carbon

It's a serious problem and Find A Grave don't seem to really care as they have ignored all 3 of my attempts to get it corrected. I finally said screw it.

All I have written is what I was told at the Schuylkill County Historical Society and one of the ladies who helped me was a church record keeper at Saint John the Baptist in Pottsville for many years.

FWIW, I found all 11 of my people who were said to be buried at St John's #2 in the cemetery at 20th and Mahantonga streets and that is Yorkville.

Best Wishes

Related? Transfer?
Inquiring about your memorials for Grant Ulyssis Solada Sr. and his wife Minnie May Greenwalt Solada. Thank you very much either way. I am trying to connect the family together. Grants brother was my great grandfather. While I know the fathers name, the difficulty is while I know the father, finding his burial to link them. (cemetery) Know he is likely in Jefferson county near Reynoldsville, In Clearfield County near Dubois, or remains sent back to Berks County... While I have a birth and baptism record, I find no exact death record yet. Know it occured between 1874 and 1880 as that is when disapeared from census, and 1874 was likely last record otherwise.
