Bio Photo (John C. Carter)

(Will be spending part of the summer in southwestern Maine).

Happy to photograph at any cemetery in the Tampa Bay, FL area! (or in the Lakes Region of SW Maine).

Born in Dover, DE, (to parents from NJ & WV), I lived in southern CA until age 12, & then in Raton, (a small town in N.E. New Mexico), which I consider my home town. I attended NM State Univ for 4 years (with a 1-yr exchange to Oregon State Univ), but did not complete a degree at that time, & later moved back to southern CA, settling in the Orange County area. After 10 yrs in the O.C., I moved to St. Petersburg, FL (Tampa Bay area) in 1990, & have been here ever since.

I have avidly worked on my family's genealogy since the age of 15 ... 42 years ago!

I am a 27-yr member (and former chapter registrar) of the SAR (Sons of the American Revolution) with 7 qualifying ancestors submitted (more to come!), a member of the SUVCW (Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War) with 10 qualifying ancestors or brothers of ancestors (more to come!), a member of the SVR (Sons of Veterans Reserve--affiliated with the SUVCW), a member of the S&DUSCT (Sons & Daughters of U.S. Colored Troops), a member of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Indians of New Jersey, and an associate member of the Lenape Indian Tribe of Delaware.

(Click on my profile pic above to read the story of the Civil War ancestor with whose headstone I'm posing).

I'm very proud that every single branch of my ancestry has been in America since at least pre-Revolutionary times.

Having taken numerous college courses over the years, I finally bit the bullet & enrolled in a program in 2003 to complete my degree, & graduated from Eckerd College (a local, private, liberal arts college) in May 2005 with a B.A. in Creative Writing.

Besides genealogy & writing, my other interests include: clock collecting, books, movies, photography, geocaching, the Civil War, the space program, many types of music, & visiting cemeteries!

Thanks to the creators of this site for doing such a great job!

RE: pierce and harmon
Hi thanks for writing back
Mary/Nancy harmon's maiden name i believe is Bailey. She was married to Levi Harmon. She was born abt 1825.
she lived in Goshen, NJ but in 1894 moved to Gouldtown. Some of her children are samuel, ella, isreal, charity, henrietta, dixon, john, levi and sarah to name a few.
thank you
I figured she does not have a headstone.

RE: Suggested edits for George Noble
This may be the wrong Noble family or the same Noble family but a different branch. I will defer to your research since I only have an indirect connection to the Noble family through my son's wife. Thanks for writing.

Biographical and Genealogical History of Cass, Miami, Howard and Tipton Counties, Indiana, Volume 2, The Lewis Publishing Co., 1898
Page 698
Jonathan Noble was a native of Snow Hill, Maryland. He came west to Cincinnati, Ohio as early as 1808. His children were: Henry, James, Elijah, Josiah, John and Henry, some of whom became prominent citizens of Cincinnati, Henry holding the office of coroner and mayor of that city. Jonathan Noble subsequently came over into Indiana and settled in Rush County, where he opened up a farm and spent the rest of his life, and here died. His sons Elijah and James also became citizens of Rush County. At the time of Jonathan Noble’s death he was one hundred one years old. He was a Methodist, a man of deep piety, and was held in high esteem by the community in which he lived.

RE: Suggested edits for George Noble
You're right. After I sent you the edit suggestion, I found more information that was confusing. If and when I find clarification that verifies, I'll contact you again.
