Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired mechanical engineer with an interest in genealogy since 1976, and a home computer since 1986.

My sister first got me interested in our family history when she copied some old photos and sent them out to the family as part of her "1776 Bicentennial celebration". After years of research, we haven't found any ancestors who were rich or famous, but the real story we uncovered is better than anything we could have made up.

I'm interested in:
Beaver, Bower, Curran, Darlington, Dugger, Loy, Lupfer, McClure, Monasmith, Pflanz, Pollard and Schlott.

Monasmith is of German origin, and many Manneschmidt households can be found today in the German state of Hessen. In America, the name has been re-spelled as Mahnenschmidt, Monasmith, Monesmith, Monismith, Monosmith and several other variations. Although not gifted in spelling, we are all cousins.

I have been working on the families of Perry County, and Cumberland County, Pennsylvania for several years now. As a result, I have registered several hundred graves there that are not related to my families, and I would be happy to transfer to any relative.

I'm also working on memorials for the alumni of Frankfurt American High School, and for the Class of 1961 of Wichita High School North. Old friends are not forgotten.

On memorials, I like to see photos of the of the person taken when they were young, as well as later in life.

Then we need one close-up photo of the grave marker, and a wide-angle shot to show the whole monument or adjacent graves.

For the genealogists, I like to add scans of the public documents that chronicle the events of the person's life: Birth Certificate, Marriage Certificate, Death Certificate, Census Records, etc. A $5 donation will increase the photo limit to accommodate this trove of original source materials.

Mr. Martin

Jerry Martin said to tell you thank you for Tanya's page. He really appreciates your doing this. He was the one who told me that she had passed away.

Once again, thank you!

RE: Another Fallen Eagle
Thank you, Allen. I signed her guest book. I didn't know her, but she's still an Eagle. She deserves to be remembered.

Empty guest books make me very sad.

Thank you so much for the edits on the Jamison family.

The only info I have on them is only from cemetery records. If you have sources just let me know and I will add the source to the bio section in case someone in the future asks me where it came from.

Thanks again.

Another Fallen Eagle
Tanya was an FAHS Class of 1973 graduate, I believe. This obituary is so short, I'm not sure what can be done, to be honest.

Scanned documents

Please do not add scanned documents to the photo section on the memorials. Photo will remove them, and census sheets add no value whatsoever.

He was listed in the original transcription for that cemetery. That is why I entered him there.
