Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have working with Quaker records for several years now and transcribe from original records... I have used "Old Style" recording of dates. Usually, this means a difference of 2 months prior than converted dates. The old calendar year started in March, not January, as it does now. I write this to help cut down on edits and to clarify when people are wondering if this is their relative or not. This link is VERY useful.

Thanks to Bill Bodkin, for thousands of photos in Allegheny, PA cemeteries.

When writing, use the edit tab on the memorial and please share a bit your relationship to the person.
Blessings to You and Yours, Enjoy Each & Every Day, and Let the Ones You Love.... Know it,
L Evans


My feelings are in each family we are called to find the ancestors.
To put flesh on their bones and make them live again,
To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.
To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead,
Breathing life into all who have gone before.

We are the story tellers of the tribe.
We have been called as it were by our genes.
Those who have gone before cry out to us:
Tell our story.
So, we do.
In finding them, we somehow find ourselves.

How many graves have I stood before now and cried?
I have lost count.

How many times have I told the ancestors
you have a wonderful family, you would be proud of us?

How many times have I walked up to a grave
and felt somehow there was love there for me?
I cannot say.

It goes beyond just documenting facts.
It goes to who I am and why I do the things I do?
It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever
to weeds and indifference and saying I can't let this happen.
The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh.

It goes to doing something about it.
It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish.
How they contributed to what we are today.
It goes to respecting their hardships and losses,
their never giving in or giving up.

Their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family.
It goes to deep pride that they fought to make and keep us a Nation.
It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us
That we might be born who we are.
That we might remember them.
So we do.
With love and caring and scribing each fact of their existence,
Because we are them and they are us.
So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family.

It is up to that one called in the next generation,
To answer the call and take their place in the long line of family storytellers.
That is why I do my family genealogy,
And that is what calls those young and old to step up and put flesh on the bones.

RE: CPT Lathrop # 154967931
Sorry about the "unknown" according to the AGBI he was from England. There are two records for him: 154967931 and 35604092 which has an earlier birth date and that he is buried in the Bloody Brook mass grave. Interestingly when I look this time I got the second one. Thanks for all your good work, Burton

Hi, I recently photographed all the memorials at Soundside FWB, and your Mary J Bateman is there, beside Daniel. If you will please transfer your memorial from Missionary to FWB (fairly easy, just click on 'edit burial'), I will add her pics. That way we won't have duplicate memorials. I plan to photograph the Missionary cemetery this week, to help sort out all the mix-ups, and there are many of them, lol. Thank you, Jackie

Photo request for Thomas Mitchell in Washington Cemetery
There is no marker for Thomas Mitchell in Lot 103 of Section D in Washington Cemetery. However, I will fulfill your photo request with a photo that shows a stone for a Thomas F. Mitchell (1924 - 1975) and the surrounding space of Lot 103. The photo will include a descriptive caption. If you are not satisfied with this photo, please let me know and I will remove it.

Enoch Harlan

Thank you for contacting me about this memorial. I am in the same position as you are on it, as I also went by "family records." In any event, "the" Piney Woods link you provided appears to be for a burial place that didn't exist until the mid 1800's "...the current Piney Woods Meeting House and cemetery date only from the mid 1800's" and of course we know that Mr Harlan died in 1794.

When I get a chance I will tax my memory to see if I can recall where I located my information. And, if I can find it ... I will be glad to share it with you for your thoughts.

Thanks again!
