I just visited three old cemetaries in Newton Ransom and Milwaukee townships in Lackawanna County, PA. (once a part of Luzerne county). Here are just a few of the surnames I came across:
Richards Ebser Getts Blackwell Bedell Ace Lacoe Stine Triveley Klippel Klipple Davis Kliem Petty Williams Courtwright Metzgar Hopkins Hoffman Zeiss Winters Nafus Howorth Walter Ayers Coon Jacoby

There is a lot more. most of the dates are from the 1800's and early 1900's. I will visit and do look ups. email me for more information at manwarren@epix.net

Interested in the names of Stevenson, Brodhun, Dymond

These are relatives who were buried in that area. Also, do you have any information on the Poor House or Ransom Asylum ?

I think the Ransom Asylum is the current State Hospital on Newton Ransom Blvd. It is a facility for the insane and mentally ill.
Why did you ask? were one of your ancestors somehow connected? I could visit there and find out, if you would like. Also, with the names you gave me, do you know where and when they died? or even where they may be buried?
Sincerely,
Julie

Don't have my data with me on birth dates / death dates. I do know that several of the Stevensons and Brodhuns were in the Ransom Home and died there. I thought that the buildings were torn down as they were empty for many years. Perhaps I am thinking of another establishment.
I born and now reside in Kingston. Most of my reatives are from the area.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Kindest regards,

John

I know this is an old message, but I am interested in the Getts' names. Hit a wall trying to find ancestors. myg-g-grandfather was Benjamin F. Getts. Any help you can give will be appreciated. Laureen

Hi! I am willing to do a search for you at our local cemetery but do you mind telling me a little more about Benjamin Getts? Do you know for sure that he lived in this area of PA? What do you know about him? Birth date? Death date? Wife & Children's names? Did he serve in a war? Any info would be helpful. You can email me directly at jmanwarren@gmail.com
