I am sorry that it came down to this as I dislike having to make a little request. Regarding Obits/funeral notices you may find for memorials I maintain at Chestnut Hill Cemetery, Portville, Cattaraugus County, NY. I have access to all the newspapers in the area and I am posting obits. as fast as my little fingers will go. Please don't send me a obit. for one I haven't got to yet, I will get to it soon. If you have a obit. or funeral notice for one of my memorials that is from, other than, Chestnut Hill Cemetery please feel free to send them. Thank You!

snyder beck connections
My 2nd grgrandmother was Barbara Beck, dau of Philip Beck and Anna Maria Labar. She married John Philip Snyder. I have tried for 20 years to find his parents. B elieve he was raised by Beck family. Many related families among Snyder, Beck, Emerick, Weidman etc. I have come to believe maybe his mother died in childbirth and was unmarried.I am a professional genealogist and have l;ocated many people for others, but can'ty get through my own brickwall. My John Philip Snyder was born in PA Aug 30 1808. Have you ever ran across any opf those people? Getting really desperate. Since so many of related families are in Snydertown Cemetery and the Old German one, they just have to be connected. Thanks Barb Snyder McQuen

RE: Preston Lucas
Thanks for posting their grave in the first place. I though Roy was going to correct it, but he didn't, so I did. I hope all is well with you and your family. Peggy/Maggie

Albert Blakeslee - Amos Blakeslee
Hi Mark,

I do not want to be in charge of the gravesite for Albert and or Amos Blakeslee. I was just informing you of the new information I had uncovered for you to review, and see if I was correct. I realize how difficult it is to keep all the names flowing in the correct path.

Please remove my name from this memorial site.

Blakeslee brothers, Albert & Amos
Hi, I believe you have the obit for Albert's wife, Maude Mable Blakeslee pictured under the wife of Amos wife, Maude Ellen Hatch. The OBIT states Maude died in 1958 and is married to Albert. The tombstone is for Amos and Maude Ellen Hatch Blakeslee. She died in Dec 1968

I realize it is very confusing when dealing with people of the same name. Maude M. Hatch Blakeslee is the daughter of Willard Ernest Hatch and Alice Connor Hatch.

Maude Ellen Hatch Blakeslee is the daughter of George Washington Hatch and Livera Aurilla Stevens.

I hope this information will clarify the problem I found.

Susanna #120358926
I sent edits identifying her as Susanna Meckley. Info from the Salem Bethel Reformed Church Cemetery book by the Tulpehocken Settlement Historical Society. You have notes on her last name in her bio. Would you please remove them.

I am a great-grandnephew of her husband, Mortimer Simpson. I have add links to her parents find-a-grave sites. Her parents' sites only had referenced two older sisters, whose sites are linked However, I note that according to the 1880 census, she had a twin sister, Ada, and an 11 year old brother, Frank, living at home with her at the time. Apparently, the two older sisters were out of the home (married?) by that time.
