Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started researching my husband's family several years ago when we "inherited" all the photos, newspaper clippings, wedding invitations, etc. that his grandmother had kept. I didn't want to throw it all out because it was a lifetime of memories and keepsakes so I began to organize it on a genealogy database. Then I was "hooked"!

I accidently stumbled onto my cousin's posting on a message board while I was searching for information on MY family and this thing just took on a life of it's own.

I volunteered to take photos for Find-a-Grave after I requested and received some for my postings. It was so exciting to see the stones that I thought it would be nice to reciprocate. I also think I have a "sixth sense" or the deceased just "call to me" because since I started taking photos, I've been to cemeteries that I've never been to and I just seem to be able to walk right up to the grave! I've done it almost every time!

If I have posted something incorrectly or if I have posted something you feel is inappropriate, please email me or leave a message and I will correct it.

I am not related to any of the postings for Mifflin County, PA so I will gladly transfer memorials to a family member, no matter how distant. PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB AT THE MEMORIAL TO MAKE THE TRANSFER REQUEST. It's much easier that way and all the necessary information is there.

Any photos I post here are free to be used by anyone. If you do not want me to use your photos, please do not claim my requests.

Mona-

I greatly appreciate all that you do for the Find-a-grave community.

Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to locate and photograph the gravesites of both Moses and Emma T. (Kauffman) Harshbarger and for posting them on Find-a-Grave.

Your efforts and level are support are truly "Impeccable!"

Hi Mona, thank you adding those pictures. It turns out I am going to get the chance to visit McVeytown PA in a month or so to do some research so if anyone else needs pictures of gravestones or info from the McVeytown archives I'd be happy to help.

RE: Barbra (Barbara) Yoder
Thank you, Mona! My Hostutler family as well as a few others have had some "strange" name spellings, and I have often seen even the nicest of headstones with errors on them. Thanks for your work, and thanks for the memorial. -Alan

Louisa Corkle & Mattawana Cemetery
Thanks so much for the transfers of Louisa. She appears to be my only connection with my great-grandmother's family. Also, thanks for the info about the cemetery. Unfortunately, I live about 3 hours away but will just address envelope to caretaker and see what happens.

So sorry I put the wrong number in for Teresa Stuter to add her as the mother. I added her as her own mother. LOL Thanks for the edits. I've fixed it in the latest edit. Thanks for handling the edits so quickly.
