Bio and Links
Bio Photo Have been busy taking photos. I am especially interested in Lithuanian Genealogy and Nanticoke Genealogy. My mother came from Minersville and my father from Nanticoke. If anyone needs a particular headstone (Nanticoke and Lithuanian cemeteries in Schuylkill or Luzerne Counties), please post then send me an email. I will be on the lookout.

I have a lot of pictures to post yet. I am a little slow because I am trying to enter relationships and any additional information I find. I am also spending a lot of time putting in edits for the mass posters, which is very discouraging. FindAGrave should stop rewarding people for their massive postings of graves. Incomplete entries creates more work for those who spend hours walking around cemeteries taking photos. No thanks are given to the editors.

If you can copy the photos, anyone is more than welcome. I am just glad that I can help.

Happy Hunting!

Deshler & Achey @ Morgenland Cemetery
Dear Gwynspekes,

Thank you so much for posting the tombstone photos of Bertie L. (nee Baer) Deshler and Sarah "Sadie" Mary Ann (nee Deshler) Achey for my family and me!

Helping those who live so far away from their deceased ancestors and relatives is not only a selfless act of kindness on your part, it is also a cherished and priceless gift that you give to us.

May God bless you and yours in all your endeavors!

With heartfelt gratitude,

Thank you!
Thank you for the image of my Aunt Gale's grave marker. I will treasure it forever as I am on the other coast of the US and will likely never get to that cemetery before I die. I am so very grateful for your efforts at getting to the family plot. ~Descendant

Hi Gwyn,
Would you be able to make a pencil transfer of Missouri's gravestone to get the dates?

I can make out Dec 1823 and then it looks like her death was in 1905??

Any help with the dates would be greatly appreciated.

Happy Hunting,
