TOMBSTONE OF MY GREAT-GREAT GRANDPARENTS, FRANK J. MEINTEL AND THERESA (ANTRETTER) MEINTEL - Greenlawn Cemetery, Hollidaysburg, Blair County, PA


This is the tombstone of one of my maternal Great-Grandmother's parents, Frank J. Meintel and Theresa (Antretter) Meintel. What is interesting to note about this stone is that Theresa's name is engraved as "Tresa." Turns out this was the name she used for most of her life and it was continued even onto her tombstone. I am fortunate to have 2 generations of ancestors buried in this beautiful cemetery.
