If possible please include your source with your edit.

This is a great site for anyone doing family research.

I have been doing genealogical research for 40 plus years. My wife and I have spent many hours walking cemeteries and visiting historical societies. A lot of the information from the cemeteries is our family however much of it is not. I am posting here in an effort to give back and share it with others in the hope it might help them as others have helped me.

I do not intentionally add duplicate memorials.

If you have additional information or questions on a memorial use the "EDIT TAB" on the memorial.

Here is Maggie's Memorial Link:
Find A Grave Memorial# 83681630

I'm betting that her parents are in that cemetery, too, but no luck finding them yet.

RE: John Bishop Memorial# 21797120
I think it was the listing for those two children that threw me off. I'm now agreeing with your assessment of the two families. I did find Andrew buried in Union Church Cemetery in Rossiter, Indiana County. Thanks for hanging with me while I sorted all this. You've been very helpful.

RE: John Bishop Memorial# 21797120

OK... I did some more work on that family today, and learned they are the same family... and I'm guessing they removed to Jefferson in 1860, and got counted twice in the census.I have them in North Mahoning, Indiana County on August 10 with six kids, and I'd mis-calculated John's age. The Indiana County census has him b. 1808., and Catherine in about 1820. The family is in Canoe Twp., Indiana County in 1870, next to their oldest son, John, b. 1841. thanks for sticking with me.

RE: John Bishop Memorial# 21797120
Hello John... Can you take down what I put on that grave site today? ...or do I have to do it? I think I have the wrong cemetery site/wrong John Bishop, because the 1860 John Bishop I have has a few more kids, including two of whom I'm certain that you don't have on your 1860 list.

Thanks for catching that for me.

RE: Norris City Cemetery
We lived in Penn Square for a few years, but moved in 1977, so I couldn't remember the street names. My husband's family has an underground vault there Andrew Supplee Family Vault.

Norris City Cemetery
Hi John
Did you ever find Norris City Cemetery? The road that goes to the cemetery is located very close to the entrance to Penn Square on Germantown Pike. It has been a few years since we have been there, but there is/was a Friendly's Ice cream on the corner.

Margaret Dugan Lare
You are correct regarding the duplicate memorial. I wonder why Margaret would be listed in the St. Matthews Cemetery Records? Strange, eh?

Pifer Cemetery signs
Thanks for removing the old sign pictures from my memorials. Yeah, I don't like the misspelled sign either, but that is the sign at the cemetery now, so we must accept... have a nice day!

Grubes in Zions Cemeteries - Lehigh and Bucks Co?
I am sorry, I think the 3 Grubeís listed for Zions Evangelical Lutheran Church Cemetery, Old Zionsville, Lehigh Co., Pennsylvania- ie Mary Ann Clymer Grube (32297674), and her son Earl (32297532)and his wife Ruth (32297660) are actually buried in Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church Cemetery,Zionhill, Bucks Co., Pennsylvania with Mary Annís Husband Morris (34583451) and her other children, Stella and Lillian.

All these memorials are managed by you, there is a memorial to Earl and Ruth in both the Bucks and Lehigh Co. Cemeteries and some kind contributor put the same picture for Earl and his wife in Both Cemeteries.

Would you look at these as I am confused. Thanks
