Hi Janice

After reading your message I believe that James Francis and James Franklin Showalter are one in the same. James Francis also worked for the railroad. Since James Francis doesn't have a grave marker and it isn't known if there is another Showalter burial there. Do you know where James Franklin is buried? I travel to cemeteries to photograph tombstones and do GPS on the burial site. I did find some Showalter burials in the Philadelphia area.

Take care
