Harry Gipson #119435716
Hello, Harry is my uncle, and I am trying to find out what happened to his sisters, my grandmother, Lucille Gipson and my aunt, Genevieve Gipson.

This is the last record I can find of her and her sister. Do you know if the funeral home would have names and whereabouts of the people mentioned in the obit? I am at a total loss. Thank you for any help you can offer.

Warm regards, Cherie

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.

Hilda St. Louis
Sorry, they did correct all her information but didn't add her obit that I submitted. They didn't correct Gus St Louis, so am going to try and resubmit his so they will correct his name and add the period at St. Thanks for your help.

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

RE: Mary Jane Barefoot Stanton
Mary Jane Barefoot Stanton was my dads great grandmother. My dads grandmother was Mary Jane Fleck (Stanton) His mother was Pearl Berkebile (Fleck) My dad is Richard F. Berkebile Jr. My wifes father Melvin Causer was also born in Scalp Level. He was born in 1918. He was Chief of Police in Johnstown Pa. He also became Chief of Police in Windber Pa. for several years in the late 70's I believe.

RE: Jason C. Garretson
Thank you for the response. What I'm doing is writing a guide to this cemetery.
Preserving in photos the headstones that are still there and including a little research on each person buried there.
When I'm done I'll be adding almost 30 new names of people as buried in Friends Cemetery. I have found headstones that were never photographed, I've found headstones that were knocked over and almost completely covered by grass. I have even found a hidden dumping spot in the woods where broken pieces of headstones have been pitched. I am getting near the end of this project and am trying to finish up by July.

You mentioned "...I got the information from the Cemetery book for Springmeadow Cemetery..." Can you point me to that book. I don't think I have seen it?

I had the same questions for you on another one of your Bedford Friends Cemetery memorials but can't remember who it was right now.

You said you were related to some of the Garrteson's. By any chance are you related to Garretson, Joseph
(18 Mar 1786-02 Jan 1846). The reason I ask is that I just found his dumped headstone about two weeks ago.

If you could point me in the direction of that book you mentioned that would be a big help. And of course if I can help you I will be happy to do so. Thank you for responding I know it takes from your time but I am grateful. 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.
