Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in geneology for many years. My grandmother had started a family tree and that has helped me to get information on my family, especially on

I enjoy going out to the cemeteries and taking pictures and finding history along with some of those and also the different types of headstones.

When I go to the older cemeteries I try to take as many pictures as possible. If you see that I have one of your family member's I don't have a problem in transering them to you. Just make sure and let me know how you are related to them. I try to follow Find A Graves rules.

If I get requests for pictures and they are a distance from where I live and there is only a request for 1 person's picture. I will not make a special trip for that. If I am going in that direction, yes I will try to find the headstone for you.

I have had requests from people that live in the same town or live closer than I do. Please if you live closer than I do please don't ask for someone else to get your pictures unless you are in a wheel chair or some other type of handicap.

Best wishes in your family search!

Hi Mary: I am related to the Witherups from Pennsylvania on my maternal side. Alexander Witherup's father, David Witherup, was a brother of my 3great grandfather, Abraham Witherup, from Venango Co., PA. I've been investigating the Missouri branch of the Witherup family. Thanks for all your nice photos posted from Shelby County. They are of tremendous help! Bruce Myers.

William Kennedy picture
HI Mary,

Thank you for the William Kennedy picture! I will check and see on his records I have.
I am related to all the "Kennedy,s" in Hancock county Illinois, they all came from Davidson and Guilford county NC. I see your "Clarkson" name and they are also a popular name in that same area of NC.

Thanks Again

I took another look at her stone. If you enlarge the photo, you can see that it actually says she was in the 42nd year of her age.

Hi, Mary,

Thank you so very much for letting me know about my error about Elsie's burial place. I appreciate your taking the time to set me straight. Just goes to show you can't believe everything that you read in the papers.

Take care.
