Bio and Links
I have been photographing grave stones since the 1980's in the southern N.J./PA area. I first started (like many) with my own family tree, and then I started photographing grave markers of Civil War and Revolutionary War Veterans' gravesites (among others) in the late 1980's and early 1990's. I moved to southeast GA in 1996 and continued with my project. I have MANY more photos from years ago (about 2000) than the ones I have posted on FIND-A-GRAVE. Any changes or corrections to my photos or information please feel free to contact me. Also, anyone wanting to use my photos for ANY reason, please ask first, I usually OK a request as long as I am given credit for the photo. Thanks.

Some of the surnames I am researching include: Lau, Wynn, Scull, Navone, Henderson, Corson, Biggs, Camp, Cheesman, Wolbert (Woolbert), Cresse, Elmer, & Lummis. Most of these family names are from the southern N.J./Philadelphia, PA area.

P.S. I've also been (since the early 1970's) a HUGE Philadelphia PHILLIES and FLYERS fan!! Greg (THE BULL) Luzinski was my favorite Phillie!
