Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy helping people, photography and genealogy so visiting nearby cemeteries to provide photos is a natural fit and my pleasure.... besides it gives me some needed exercise!

If you see a memorial I created that you want to manage please email me and I will gladly transfer it to you. Please include your Contributor ID# that appears beside your name in your profile.

If you want to use any of the photos that I have taken and posted feel free to do so...just drop me a line, I may also have a different view of the photo.

I have copies of the old Philos Cemetery burial books and maps and also I have access to St James' Episcopal Church records here in Westernport.

Information for many of the Fazenbaker memorials is from the book " The Fazenbaker Family of Western Maryland" by Walter L. Warnick 1991.

I reside in Westernport, Allegany Co, Maryland

I have permission of the Piedmont Herald Newspaper to use their printed obituaries. The Herald is closed and no longer in business.

Thanks so much for the headstone photo for Goldie and William Phillips. You've helped me to nail down the proper burial site for these folks, and I'm grateful for your help.

Hugh Moore & Eliza Moore - Specht
Thank you so much for the headstone pictures of Hugh Moore & Eliza Lower-Moore - Specht and their family. I was really surprised to see the pictures with all their names on it. I live in Iowa and I knew I would never be able to make the trip to see their headstone.
Thank you & god Bless you,

RE: Terrence Woods
Thanks, John. I'll take a look at my cousin's tree on and let you know if it is the right one. Oddly enough, my birthday is also May 9th!
