RE: Wife of Francis W Meade

I just saw your message. Martha Crozier I believe may have been married before Francis to a Parks. She was born in 1828 in Ireland. She died Feb. 9, 1898 but I don't where. I have a very small newspaper clipping from It is so small I can't read it even with a magnifying glass. Francis and Mathilda's children were: Sarah married George Thornton, John M. Meade married Olive Ann Jackson (my husband descends from them),Francis, Georgianna, Andrew Jackson, James P., William C. and Warden. Are you related to Matilda?

RE: Deaths with cremation -
Non-Cemetery Graves are some times troublesome. If you put in the persons name and nothing else, you will get a list of all of that name on findagrave with that name. Then you have to go down the right side and look for "No Cemetery".

If you put in a name and a death date or year, then you will narrow down the list.

you cannot qualify by state or country, as the state and country don't exist on Non-Cemetery entries. The state is associated with the cemetery when you do a search in a legitimate cemetery, not the occupant.

RE: Nantmeal Friends Burial Ground
There are very few Nantmeal MH records available online. Unless there is something local, I am afraid we have hit a dead end. John,

Ludwig, was my 6th great grandfather. My ancestors later changed the spelling of their name to Albright.

RE: Just a note
Johannes Albrecht and his wife, Anna Barbara Gossauer, arrived in Philadelphia from Rotterdam on September 18, 1732 with their five children: Matelina (Magdalena), (Anna)Barbara, Christiana (John Christian), Jacob, and Lodawick (Ludwig). Their ship was the Johnson Galley. The family settled in Lancaster County in an area, which is now in Berks County. Johannes and Anna Barbara were my 7th great grandparents and their son,

Nantmeal Friends Burial Ground
I see that there only 31 memorials in the Nantmeal Friends Burial Ground. For a cemetery that old there should be three times that number.
I know from my tree there should be several more Hawleys, Merediths, and Kirks. Even if they are just initials I may be able to make sense of them.
If there is anything I can do to aid your efforts,
please let me know. Thanks, John

RE: Just a note
I just sent you an invitation to my ancestry site. It is private. My earliest Albrecht ancestor on Find A Grave is Ludwig Albrecht, #5452136, who is my 6th great grandfather. I have no information on his wife, Anna Maria Keller. Some researchers list her parents as a Bucks County couple, but this is not correct. I have researched that family, who also had a daughter, Anna Maria. There are numerous records on her husband, children, etc.

I see I made a typo. I meant to say makes sense.
