Bio and Links
Bio Photo Live in Baltimore County, MD; summer at Limekiln Lake in Inlet, NY. Write historical articles for Weekly Adirondack in Old Forge and appear on , am interested in Adirondack and Fulton Chain historical figures, of whom many are in Oneida and Lewis Counties and other NY cemeteries, many now inactive, often in obscure locations.

I work from my cemetery photos, then linking the graves through trees, and newspaper sites such as and I often contact ancestry trees to let them know I've found their family members, especially if I've used their trees to confirm or help link family members on findagrave.

There is always a chance for errors and happy finger typos. So please do not hesitate to let me know if you find something needing correcting, have more family connections or question the links I've made, using the "Edit" tab on the memorial.

If you find I've added a photo where one was already present, I often take photos to get the whole stone and a closeup for clarity or to get the family group of stones. If I find a photo of part of a stone and I have the entire stone , if the back of stone is shown without the front, I will add my own to the benefit of the memorial and the deceased's family who may not be able to go to that location.

In like manner, if someone has a better, clearer photo than mine, please add it and don't hesitate to ask me to remove mine. Please contact me and I will be glad to do so for this any other reason.

I don't add to existing photos to replicate what is there or to add to my statistics. If you believe mine repeats what you've added without additional benefit, please ask me to remove mine and I will do so promptly.

Rather than add memorials from listings, I add memorials from walking the cemetery and taking photos.

Anything I add to findagrave is intended to be used by you.

My profile photo was taken at a mock cemetery at Sturbridge Village.

What leads you to believe William and Hannah Burt are her parents? I can't find anything.
Thank you,

RE: pending edits
Thanks for all the edits. I got my information from an old list. I haven't been able to get up there to look around myself.

Pohl graves / West Leyden
Just wanted to say thanks for the photos of George Pohl and family in the cemetery in West Leyden, Lewis, NY. George and Hannah are my great great grandparents and it is wonderful to have the information as I live on the west coast and it is hard to get to New York!

Thanks again -

RE: herman sylvia janitzky
A few years ago I received a package with photos of my Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother and family, as well as a number of letters that my GGM (Herman's Mother) wrote to her family in Germany in the 1920's-1940s. The letters are in old German, but my cousins in Germany also included typed up transcriptions. I haven't fully translated them, but my understanding is Herman's father headed west, and his family never heard from him again.
