Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Maryland but my heart and much of the family I am researching is in Pennsylvania. The majority of my family is of German origin, emigrating in the early to mid 1700s. On my father's side I have a particular interest in the following families: Stine/Stein, Rittenhouse, Smith, and Hauze. On my mother's side I am deeply vested in Virginia/West Virginia and the Hite and Manning families, as well as the Strouse family in Pennsylvania.

I have more detailed copies of photos uploaded to this site and welcome requests. If the memorial I have uploaded is not related to my family, I would be pleased to turn over ownership to a family member.

Photos on Find a Grave should never be used without permission, and the source should always be credited.

My policy is that others may use the photos of MEMORIALS I have posted for personal use, but do require that the source of the photo(s) be stated as that both credits my work and also provides provenance for the photo. Simply reference that it is a photo posted on FAG by Ellen and give the date.

Please DO NOT use portraits unless you are immediately related.

Thank you.

Your request
I cannot remove the link for Joseph K Biery and Sarah C Keiter Schultheis (1852 - 1916). The other party has to.
