Bio and Links
Bio Photo First and foremost I'm a serious family historian. Like many others involved in Findagrave I maintain memorials strictly for that purpose. I believe that complete correct memorials created by people who care about the people they memorialize will withstand the test of time and scrutiny. Thank you to the many really nice folks who have transferred family members to me so that I may keep them updated and linked as I continue to research them.

My famous bio is for my cousin Francis Rawn Shunk, 8th governor of the state of Pennsylvania 1845-1848, who died of TB within two weeks of resigning his office. I'm also the proud cousin of two Civil War Brevet Major Generals, Jacob Bowman Sweitzer, who made a difference at the Wheatfield at Gettysburg, and his brother Nelson Bowman "NB" Sweitzer, adjutant to General George McClellan, and later in charge of the troops searching for John Wilkes Booth after he assassinated Abraham Lincoln. My Civil War associations also include two other cousins who were officers in the Union Army, and my Great Granddad Edward's four brothers and one nephew who, like him, were all Union Army soldiers.

Included amongst my memorials are most of my Philadelphia and Southeastern Pennsylvania Revolutionary Patriots from both my Mom's and my Dad's ancestors. All seven were German or Swiss ancestral lines making me very Pennsylvania Dutch.
Find my YDNA at: My kit is #3892 Haplogroup I2a2a1c1b M223 L703 which unfortunately is such a rare DNA nobody else has remotely matched my two cousins and myself in the past 12 years.

My bio photo is of my Great Granddad Edward Lawrence holding the youngest of his three sons, my Granddad George Robbin Lawrence. The photo was taken in 1863 in Philadelphia, Pa right before Edward was drafted into the Union Army.

RE: Caroline Eisenbrey Speel
Dear James:
Thank you for promptly correcting the information about Caroline Eisenbrey Speel and for adding her death certificate and obituary. Caroline is a first cousin to my husband's 4th great grandfather. Thank you for all the information you have added to findagrave! Much appreciated!

Eisenbrey - West Laurel Hill
I photographed this stone on Saturday and have added my photo for Philip, Maria, and daughter Sarah. Also listed on the stone are daughters: Anna Sophia (1840-1921) and Catherine Eisenbrey Hall (1839-1931).

Anna Sophia does not yet have a memorial - would you like to create one?

Catherine Hall does have a memorial (#91440439) - I thought you might want to link her up with her parents.

His name is noted as Carl Morgenroth.
His tombstone is mostly buried, so all you see is the last name.

I went and checked the RI transcription and that is the way they have it on the transcription, so I guess I wasn't paying attention and didn't catch their mistake. Let me know what you think, or if you want management.

It looks like you have a wrong tombstone picture on this memorial.

Sarah Harm Transfer
Hope you don't mind the transfer. This was one of my mother's memorials and we are not related. Your information of last year was updated on the memorial.
