Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been adding older memorials in my area over the winter months and plan to go out, find and photograph them when it warms up. Any information you have to add to any of my memorials would be appreciated. I search the old newspapers for old obits. and also look up the death certificates, as sometimes the obit. does not give specific birthdates, parents, etc...this information is not always correct, but if it is there, I will list it and make a note where that info. came from. If you want me to add information or change anything, please list your source.

I have no problem with transfers if they are not related to me, but please, only ask if you plan to add to the memorial.

Any of my headstone photos may be used anywhere you'd like, I only ask that you give me credit for the photo.

I've fixed the mistakes. Thank you for letting me know about them. I get to typing so fast that I invert letters and I had a habit of not doing a spell check. I do have I need to find Catherine's dod so I can search for her obit. I'd like to link her to her parents.

RE: Hanna Cemetery

Yes it was posted when I was there. My husband's relatives were buried there so we took a chance to go and take pictures. As long as you are not vandalizing the area, I don't see any harm in it. I am not sure who owns the land to go and ask permission. Maybe records at the courthouse in Carlisle.

Karen, are you a relative of Modena Shaffer Smith? I am researching the Leeper Family,and looking for cousins to share information and such with?

Thank for the updated information on her. She definitely was connected to the wrong parents. I would not have made that connection personally and it was probably sent to me as a request by another member. I try to check link requests, but I get so many it is difficult to do. I really appreciate members, like you, who contact me when they see errors like this one.
