Burial Search

Dodson Cemetery, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania


On Friday when we picked Hunter up from school we went in search of the Dodson Cemetery in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.  Earlier on Friday I located where Elizabeth Jane (Savage) Thomas was buried.  I had been looking for her for quite some time.  I was searching in Columbia County and then on Friday I thought what if she was buried in Luzerne County for some reason.  I searched on Find A Grave in Luzerne County and low and behold there she was.  I was in shock.  I could not believe that after months of searching I finally found where she was.  I quickly did a search for Dodson Cemetery on Google Maps.  I showed it to Jason and he punched it into the GPS.  I was so happy when we got there and found it!

My number one lesson that I have learned so far on this journey into genealogy is that if you don't find it the first time it is worth a second look!  (or in my case a10th look).

Happy ancestor hunting!!
