Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since 2004. I am retired and live in Gambrills, Maryland. My main genealogy interests are in Western Maryland and S. Central Pennsylvania. My wife is also involved in her genealogy in Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. We visit cemeteries to find our ancestors' stones and markers. I enjoy photographing the monuments.

Main families of interest are Minnich (Minich), Keefauver, Lemen, Harsh and Stone, Craig, Lydic, and Buterbaugh. Others are Johnston, Swonger, Lloyd, and Miner.

If I have made a duplicate, please contact me and it will be deleted quickly. Also, since only five free photo spots per person are allowed in findagrave, please do not add unnecessary photos to any memorials. Obituaries should be typed in the Bio sect and not added as photos. Transfers may be made if you ask using the EDIT button and also state relationship. You have my permission to use my grave stone / marker photos for your private use. For any use of my family photos please contact me. Hopefully, you will source or link the photos. It never hurts to give someone credit for helping you.

I have been purchasing "orphan-rescue" antique photos with names sufficient to search and find a 'home' for them. Some success has been had. There are photo albums of Hellyers (Seneca F., etc. - PA) and Hopkins (Arthur, Lewis, etc.) that are awaiting family.

Findagrave is as good as we make it.

Next time you're out at the cemetery, would you check if Bobby Kirk is interred there? We discovered he iisn't at Cheltenham. Thank you

Thanks Mike I've been trying to get everyone linked together. Our Great Grandfather never had a stone so the family is trying to have one set but have run into weird situation with Cedar Hill???-Stephen

Capt Alexander Warfield
Good morning. Thank you for your message and efforts. Please post the photo(s) with the observations you made while visiting the site so others know that it likely is the resting place of Alexander, but we cannot be certain.

~ Yes, 1740 is a long time...too bad his more immediate ancestors were unable to keep the markers in recognizable shape. ~

I wanted to ask if I can use your grave photos for the Mewshaw family. These are my aunt's family and I wanted to add the gravestone to my tree on

If you wish, I can add a tag for the source and credit you.
