Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I have helped you with a photo or such..then you are welcome! All I ask is that you return a random act of kindness to someone in need.

I enjoy helping people, photography and genealogy so visiting nearby cemeteries to provide photos is a natural fit and my pleasure.... besides it gives me some needed exercise!

If you see a memorial I created that you want to manage please email me and I will gladly transfer it to you. Please include your Contributor ID# that appears beside your name in your profile.

If you want to use any of the photos that I have taken and posted feel free to do so...just drop me a line, I may also have a different view of the photo.

I have copies of the old Philos Cemetery burial books and maps and also I have access to St James' Episcopal Church records here in Westernport.

Information for many of the Fazenbaker memorials is from the book " The Fazenbaker Family of Western Maryland" by Walter L. Warnick 1991.

I reside in Westernport, Allegany Co, Maryland

I have permission of the Piedmont Herald Newspaper to use their printed obituaries. The Herald is closed and no longer in business.

RE: Frances Mansbach
Thanks, John. That's what I figured. I have to hope she will respond!

Frances Mansbach
Hi John, Thanks again for letting me use the images you have for H.H. Mansbach. I wanted to let you know that the information for Frances Mansbach is not correct. She was the daughter of Louis Mansbach and Clara Nathan Mansbach, not of HH and Nannie Mansbach (who would have been 53 when Frances was born). I was able to find the birth records for Frances in the West Virginia vital records database. I contacted the person who has Frances' memorial, but I thought I'd let you know also since you have her listed as their daughter on HH and Nannie's pages.
