Bio and Links
I have been researching my family since I was 12 years old. I was curious about a list of names and birthdays found in an old ledger in the bottom of an antique chest owned by my grandmother.

The last few years I have been walking graveyards trying to document and find my ancestors (much to the chagrin of my young daughter!). I always try to imagine which of my relatives stood in the same spot during and after the funeral mourning their loved ones; this is probably the closest I will ever come to connecting with them. I also enjoy the inscriptions and unique artwork on the monuments, looking for the symbolism and meaning behind them.

I hate to see fading and damaged monuments and stones, so often I will snap a picture of them, even if I am not related to that individual. Once, such a picture turned out to be a long lost cousin of mine --- that tombstone is no longer present at that cemetery, and the photo was my only documentation of a birth date for him.

I am now in the process of posting all these photos to this website. Check back often, since this will be a work in progress. I hope my contribution may help you in your own research.

about little Ervin
Dear Ms. Hudson,

Baby Ervin Shaffer was my grandmother's little brother. He survived the death of his mother - who died about a month after giving birth to him. She left a grieving husband and I think eight other children, the oldest who was about thirteen. They did their best to take care of the little baby, and gave him cow's milk in place of his mother's milk, but the cow got into some "bad onion grass" - so my grandmother used to tell me - and the baby died from the tainted milk. Somewhere I have a pencil-traced picture of his little hand with the crude letters "Baby Ervin Our Pet" underneath it.

Would you want any other information about this line - what birth and death and marriage information I have about some of the other children in the family? If I can leave you a private message on Facebook or somewhere, I would be glad to give you my address.
