Bio and Links
I have been doing genealogy for about 22 years, I have accumulated many records from Warren County at the Court House, Library and the Historical Society. This latest venture of taking photos at the cemetery is to help anyone that may be looking for a relative that may be buried in Warren County. I have several branches of my family that I have added also. If I have entered any of your relatives and you want to take ownership feel free to message me, I would be happy to be of help.

Names I am researching: Fehlman, Schuler, Pastor, Gutzler, Musante, Mangini, Crawford, Kofford, Wenzel, Lauffer, Keil, Hansen, Knudsen, Duncan, Shand, Baker, Becker, Beck and many others that are very common names like Smith and Thomas.

I have been out in the cemeteries for over 3 years and have taken a lot of photos, I do not mind transferring if you have also worked hard on this project. I get requests to transfer memorials and usually do even if the person is not on your direct line. That being said, I get lots of requests from people that have added some names and photos but are managing hundreds and hundreds more than they entered or went out and took photos of, if they are not directly related in those cases I do not transfer, if you want information added send it to me and I will add.


I do not mind doing transfers especially when it falls into the guidelines of this site however many times I am asked to transfer relatives that are not direct. I will do transfers when they are not direct but I go to your profile first, many times I see that the individual requesting the transfer has only entered a few memorials and very few photos, I worked hard to get photos and expect anyone requesting transfers will work as hard too to make this site a success so I do not transfer if the person requesting has not worked hard also. I am managing many more than I entered because I have a friend that passed away and hers were transferred to me to manage.

Charlotte Fairchild
George Francis Fairchild's family.
In Pine Grove Cemetery, Eerie County, Pennsylvania, there is a copy of a death certificate for a great-great-great-aunt of mine. Find A Grave Memorial# 54059255, her brother Calvin Ira Fairchild Find A Grave Memorial# 54059283. There are other Fairchild relatives. These are the only siblings of George Francis Fairchild in your cemetery. Calvin also worked for the Rail Road. Israel was a farmer according to my late friend's information in two Fairchild genealogy books. https://fairchildfamilyhistory.wordpres… which are out of print and available on this blog. The second book is at the end of this blog page. Jean Fairchild Gilmore also wrote another book. We had a correspondence starting in 1978. I placed an ad in the DAR magazine and she replied. I visited her and for a time she planned to bequeath her research to me. Thank God she gave it to a New York Historical Society. Calvin's father was one of maybe 16 children. The Rev. Peter Fairchild was Calvin Ira's grandfather. Ontario, Canada has much information.

Cordelia D Sowa
Re: Find A Grave Memorial# 101856635

You should please note that the Memorial page for Cordelia D Sowa is incorrect in that Donald J. Sowa (1935 - 2016) was no her spouse.

Cordelia D "DUNKLE"Sowa's spouce was and is Richard C Sowa, born Aug 23 ,1932. By all indications Richard is still living. Not that the headstone does not have his date of death. He would seem to be living in the Warren/Youngsville, Pennsylvania area.

Help !
I see that it is you who added the photos of the tomb of Charles Blaine Mac Lean born in 1926 is buried in the cemetery of Erie.
I am French and I had a DNA test done to my mother to find her father, whom she never knew, and who was an American soldier during the Second World War. The results of the DNA test tell us that Charles Blaine Mac Lean born in Erie in 1926 and died in 1996 could be his father, but we need to be certain of this, by checking, for example, that the man was in France during his military service.
To do this we have to get in touch with his children, his nephews or brothers and sisters who would still be alive.
Could you help me please ?
I find nowhere the trace of children that this man would have had.
Thank you in advance for your answer
Paris, France

Thanks so much for transferring my grandfather Michael Federko to me.

I have posted some photos and a bio, but still have more work to do. This is much easier to do if I can just work on it in small doses, and not pester you with frequent requests for updates.

Thanks so much for transferring my grandmother's memorial to me. I am hoping to fill in some gaps in family history, and I want to upload the info and photos I have, so others in my family won't have to work quite so hard for the info. I found a way to pay back for some of the work you have done - there are a couple of pioneer cemeteries near me with photo requests. Thanks again!

Elizabeth Anderson Watson
I believe you have Elizabeth Anderson Watson linked to the wrong mother. The Agnes Anderson who was linked would have been only 12 years old when Elizabeth was born. There are MANY other Agnes Andersons, including one in the Gibbs Hill cemetery in Ludlow PA. Thanks!

I was wondering, if there was another footstone for the memorial Charles H Ransom, that was her lst husband, and her 2nd was Fred Hill. Here is her obit, it says she was buried there, but I don't know if under HILL or RANSOM, maybe you can help me figure it out?

RE: George B Jones
What you added to the bio is great. In order to stay within guidelines I think we should leave the dates as is and the locations are correct. Thanks.

Emily Fornell (#101592996) & Charles Fornell (#101592984)
I am sending you a message rather than just making the edits because the situation is a bit complicated. Charles and Emily Fornell were brother and sister (see census records from 1900 through 1940). In all of those censuses they lived on a farm in Brokenstraw. The dates under "Mother" and "Father" on the lower part of the stone are the death dates of their parents, Jan Nilsson Fornell and Christina Maria (Nilsdotter) Fornell. You will notice that father is under Emily and mother under Charles which makes no sense if the dates were their birthdates or the stone was provided by their children. Charles was born in Sweden in October 1868 and Emily was born there May 22, 1871. They emigrated to the U.S. with their parents in 1887. If you agree, I will be happy to make the edits on the memorial and add a short biography.
