Genevieve "Jennie" Brock Wilson, 71948311
Thanks for transferring Jennie to me. I have added her obit to her page, and linked her to her parents. The big surprise to me is that her mother was a Veal/Veale, a daughter I didn't have linked yet in the Veal/Veales in my mother's Cox family tree.

So, I just added a bunch of new info.
And one of Jennie's brothers is buried in Mount Hope Cemetery --- I had already made and updated his page.

I added photos to several of your memorial pages that had not had pictures on them. I hope you enjoy the pictures. Contact me if you need any help.

I also emailed you a link to the first section of my book on Friends Cemetery- did you get the email and get a chance to look at the file?

Take care,

Evelyn Eveline Silber Greenfiels
Find A Grave #67429730 Parents and maiden name is incorrect.
She is listed under the Wyandot marriage records as Eva Givler in the 1870 census she is listed as Evelyn Givler and one son gives her last name as Givler. Evelyn is not listed under any census records for Silber.

RE: Joseph Garretson 1786-1846
It is such a shame! That's why I want to to this. Get things on records before they are gone. When I'm done going to donate to any historical society that will take. I will have well over 1,000 pictures if not 2,000 pictures of the headstones in this cemetery. Like I said I found Joseph's stone in a hidden scrap pile in the woods. I'm finding what I think is a lot of mower damage in this cemetery.

Also thanks for the address for the book I will give it a go.

Take care,
Scott Eisenhuth

RE: Joseph Garretson 1786-1846
Another question- about the book "Commemoration of the BiCentennial of Dunnings Creek Preparative Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, Fishertown, PA" I can't find the page on the website to order the book. Could you point me in the right direction if it's not too much trouble.

RE: Joseph Garretson 1786-1846
Great. Thank you. This confirms what I had. So you are related to Joseph Garretson then.I have been wanting to get my hands on that book myself. I haven't found one on line. Do you known of any others for sale? Also if you'd like a photo of Joseph's headstone let me know.
Thanks, Scott Eisenhuth

I'm trying to track down this Jason Garretson but can't find any information other than the memorial page. Do you remember what your source was for his burial in this cemetery? Is there anything else you can point me toward for information on Jason Garretson.
Thank you very much.

RE: Josiah Penrose Garretson
I have many photos on my iPad but need to speak with my dad and make sure that I give you the right names with them. I'd also like to send you the transcription of Josiah's diary, he talks about his brother Ben being shot in the head and making arrangements for him. Ben was originally in a hospital in the DC area but Josiah had him transferred to the hospital in Philadelphia where Josiah recovered from his illness. Over the winter we traveled to Petersburg where Ben was shot and have photos of the monument for his Unit. My dad has so much amazing info and I just work to fill in the blanks.
Is the email listed on your Find A Grave account correct? I'll make sure to email everything there.

I'm a cousin...
My dad was John W Ross. I think I may have
met you one time when I was a kid, Nancy. Just wanted to say thank you for keeping our family history alive.
The Turkey Farm is now closed. A Sad day, but life must always go on.
I love all the photos you have posted. I'm amazed at the strong line of genetics that have run through our family. I remeber your mother quite fondly...what a character she was!!
Feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone. 646-761-5052
