Not a problem. I will send you some information for the memorial and you can decide if you would like to include it.
Thanks for responding.

Thanks for the kind words. I assume you saw the memorial I created with photo for Laura Estella Buchanan, daughter of John and Mary Buchanan. I am sorry to report that there is no record of a Jane Weaver at Oak Spring. Sharon and I looked for any Jane Weavers at Oak Spring, and there were none. Also looked for other Weavers with dod in 1940 and nothing. You've got a deal on the lunch!

The Philip I am looking for was born about 1763, and so would have died certainly no later than 1850 or so (This Philip was the husband of Catharine Perkins Ford). I think the Philip you gave me the record for died in 1892, or thereabouts? Too young to be Catharine's husband :-) I'll see if I can find a date for him, though - Thanks, Kimberly!

Thanks, Kimberly! Grew up in Chester County, PA, and had family very close to the "arc" (My dad's mom grew up in Landenberg, PA, just a stone's throw from Hockessin, DE), but have been away for a long time.
If I can think of anything, I will let you know. I have a bunch of people in Riverview, but I was there about 5 years ago and photographed what I needed. Also have a lot of photos from Mount Salem ---- but I did fail to find (in the Spring of 2016) a stone for Lewis Dowland (full name Lewis Martin Van Buren Dowland), which might be spelled Dolan or Doland. He and his wife are allegedly buried at Mount Salem. If you could ever stumble across them (and Margaret Perkins Ford's husband, Philip...but I have no idea when he died or where he is buried - probably not even at Newark Union), and photograph, that would be awesome :-)
Likewise - if you ever need anything looked for and photographed in the Albany, NY area (~75-100 mile radius), I am your man!
Thanks again, Kimberly!

Dear Kimberly -
Many thanks for posting the photo of the gravestone of Catharine Perkins Ford (Newark Union Cemetery)! She is one of my 6-times great grandparents.

Thanks Kimberly. It looks good. We're not as concerned as others about obits on memorials--glad to have them.
Very interesting and moving story on him! We don't think often enough about the survivors and what they go through when a veteran is lost.

Very nice tribute on "Find A Grave" to Cpl. McCahon, thank you for posting the photos and letting me know they were there. I'll pass the link on to the rest of the 9th PA; many were at the re-dedication.

Generally the VFW members place American flags by each veterans monument. I usually carry a handful. I'll make sure there is one for the Pvt.

|EDWARD ROCK||RE: Your family|
Commissioning the memorial was my finest moment. I imagine you felt the same. Later I was able to get photos of two of the boys. They are framed and hanging on my LR family portrait gallery. As long as we remember them, they are alive. They were hidden since 1915. Makes it all worth while. If you go to Fernwood look at George Roch. And thank you.

|Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War||Samuel Hunzeker|
I located your memorial to Samuel Hunzeker while working on the one Bev did on him as well. It took me a bit of digging due to the spelling Bev had, the original was Saul F. Hunzenker. I have no idea where she got it from. However after finding the Pennsylvania Civil War info on him I started cleaning up some of the rough edges. However that's when I found yours. Bev did hers in 2006 # 13338984 (Wrong spelling of name but same date of death as your entry) and you entered yours on 2015 # 154538727. Bev passed away and the Sons of Union Veterans have taken over her memorials involving Civil War Veterans. I have changed the spelling and added additional information on Bevs and thanks to you linked his wife. Please review Bev's old entry now corrected and advised how you would like to handle this.

She is listed in the cemetery database as Margaret M. Everett Brown, which is why I had her maiden name as Everett. I suspect she married again after the death of her first husband and her final married name was Everett. But she was buried next to her first husband and the marker was probably made at the time of his death, thus doesn't include her final married name. However, that's just a surmise. I haven't found corroborating evidence to add it to her bio. In any case, since the marker has her last name as Brown, that's what has to go in the Last Name field. I changed the maiden name field to Davis based on her husband's obit.

Thanks for the quick reply. I have another Kraeer ancestor in that cemetery, Louis Kraeer. It saddens me to hear the cemetery is in such bad shape. I wish I was closer, but I am in Texas. If you could transfer them to me I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Hello. I was looking at the photos you took for the memorials Unknown Kraeer #1 and #2. I was hoping if you are ever in that area again you might be able to make out the names and dates on them. In one of the pictures it looks like one could be Hepsy. I can sort of make out a HEP. Thank you.

She was in the cemetery list--other than that I have no info about her or any of the other Hollands there. Since you're related I'll be glad to transfer them to you if you want so you can add more info as you find it.

|Eric Speck||Jadwiga Rybaltowski # 112355276|
She was listed in the database under a slightly different spelling. I've corrected it based on your photo and info from her birth certificate. Please post the Rybaltowski monument photo you added to the others to her memorial.
I like to keep the orignal plot info, since it's likely that the remains were left in place and the monument was put up later, possibly when Dorota was buried in 1933. But to help people locate the monument, I add that information to the Bio. Should go in in the Note field, but that only works well for very short 1-line notes.

You took the photo for Rebecca Brynberg Justis 11094532 and I wondered if you noticed if Charles Justis 13703370 was buried close to her. Did they have the same style of gravestone? Trying to place Charles as her husband. Thanks. Cathy

Hi Kimberly, I have been to the Raccoon Cemetery one time. Drove over there after finishing up at Center Cemetery in Midway and in fact was looking for some of your requests there (Farrar, etc). No luck. Short visit. Kinda out of my area, but might put it on my list for the future. Catching up on all of the pictures I took this past year but was saving for my winter project.
Nice to hear from you,
