I would like to make some additions/corrections that are listed in your Phoneix Cemetery web page.
KERN, Esther A.
Husband: William J.
Born: 6/10/1907 Died: 4/22/1983
Comments: Oldest of 3 daughters of Harry Lloyd & Ora Van Aken
Husband: Harry Andrew Lloyd
Born: 9/15/1885 Died 5/11/69
Comments: 2nd daughter of Solomon Van Aken and Mary Low
Harry A. Lloyd is also buried along side his wife Ora
Wife: Ora Van Aken
Born: 9/16/1883 Died: 11/2/1938
Comments: Son of Jasper Lloyd & Myra Phoenix
The other child that is buried under the tree along with Susan Ann Kern in the Phoenix Cemetery is Harry Kilbourne (son of I.Dorr Kilbourne and Ollie Jane Lloyd Kilbourne). Ollie Jane was the youngest daughter of Harry Lloyd and Ora Van Aken. There is no marker stating that the children are buried here.
Susan Ann Kern Born 8/19/1942 and died the same day -
is also buried in that row along with Esther Kern and Lloyd and Phoenix.
There is no marked tombstone but there is a stone that leans up against
the tree to the right of Esther's grave.
There is also another young child buried around that tree - I can get more information on that and send it to you.
Esther Kern was my mother and Ora Lloyd was my grandmother and I was just surfing the other day and came across this information and would like to have it more complete. My brother and I also contribute generously to the the Phoenix Cemetery Association every spring to keep it taken care of and mowed.
I have post cards of local things - like an oil well burning in Watrous, a Deer Trail (below Gaines) post card - I don't know the dates but it was when the domestic mail cost one cent. I have a post card of a view of Gaines with a dirt road and a livery stable plus Lloyd's Tourists' Home.
I also have a calendar from 1924 that was given to my father from the Knowlton School, Gaines Twp, Pennsylvania in 1923 that lists the teacher and has her photograph (Miss Dolly Mae Thomas) on the front page and the school board is also listed. I can scan these items and email them to you, if you are interested in adding them to the web pages.
Thanks for your efforts and time spent on these things - it is so important to reserve as much local history as we can.
