Bio and Links
I joined Find A Grave because I wanted to find where my ancestors were buried. Then I learned that I could link them for not only me, but for anyone else interested in the same line. I now really enjoy creating non family member memorials and linking their family members.

My maternal 3rd great-grandparents were William and Elizabeth Short Dodson.

My maternal 2nd great-grandparents were Andrew Jackson Rebecca Williams Dodson Sr.

My maternal great-grandparents were William and Ida Flack Dodson.

My maternal grandparents were James (Jessie) Joseph and Helen Elizabeth Demuling Dodson.

I'm descended from the Laughlin, Murphy, and McGinnis lines from Onoville, N.Y and the Demuling and Dodson lines in Pennsylvania.

My wife is descended from Isaac and Lucinda Hill Brock from Texas and the William T. and Sarah Sallie Johnson Gaston line from North Carolina.

I've no problem with the use of my photographs for your own purpose's but please be kind and ask first, and if used, please give credit.

I forgot.....
As I mentioned a while ago, I just rejoined Find-a-Grave. Unfortunately I wasn't able to remember my old user name and password. It only matters if someone may try to contact me re the photos I submitted way-back-when. Do you have any idea how to contact the folks at Find-a-grave to have my old submissions added to my new account? Tnx Curley 7/14@2025hrs.

Hi Dave, I have your photos. I photographed all the graves in the area. In that it's a bit confusing, could I possibly send you all the photos (there are 8, I retook some already done) so you can add them? I can send them via regular email directly to you if that's ok. Curley 7/14@2020hrs,

Parish secretary has just provided me with the following.

Rose is buried under the last name of ROSE L. MAGNUSON.
She is buried next to KNUTE MAGNUSON in section 6, lot 66
South, grave #3.

Isabelle GILTINAN is buried in section 6, lot 71 North, grave #6.

Does this sound accurate? It's definitely confusing to me!

RE: Teresa and Ellen Bryne Gribbin
Hi Dave,

When I went back to photo the third (because I thought I shot the wrong grave, which I did) I discovered that her grave wasn't in the Gribbin lot, or at least not marked. I'll have to check the cemetery books to see where she is. There are some Magnusons' there too. Maybe I'll shoot the whole crew and let you know what's there.

I'm working on the others too.

It's no problem at all with any that you'd like me to look for.

I'm at H.C. almost every day and have access to the cemetery books and records.

RE: Teresa and Ellen Bryne Gribbin
Hi Dave,

Happy to do it.......I'll get the third one soon, I photographed the
wrong grave when I did the other 2 or it would be done too.

Lost in space.... (Me)
Hi Dave,
You may remember that I was active with Find-a-Grave a couple years ago........

I will do my best to get the photos for Holy Cross/Jamestown.

I notice you have just recently added a few names.....they sound very familiar......have we looked for those in the past? I'll see what we have in the Parish records; I have access to them, but many are vague and incomplete, no surprise there.

RE: Loretta Eliza Erskine DeVelder
Hi Dave,

I have done the same thing many times. I'm always glad when someone notifies me and so I thought I'd send along a little note to bring it to your attention.

Have a great day,

You're very welcome. I can see the light at the end of the Old Claysburg tunnel! BUT ... sunshine (and grass mowing) permitting, I'll finish photographing the oldest part of Claysburg Union tomorrow. There will be about 40 un-photographed names remaining in Old Claysburg, that I suspect are in Claysburg Union instead.

Stay tuned ... !

Thank you for transferring Elizabeth Cyphert Bedell to me! I appreciate it very much. Gee, that almost makes you and me related!

I photographed all of "Old Claysburg" about a month ago, and have about 250 pics left to upload. As I come across people on the "wrong side of the street" I let the creator of the monument know. I suspect there will be a number who will need to travel in the opposite direction!
