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.

Child Craig

I am working with burial records and added a Child Craig to Spring Hill today. Find A Grave Memorial# 142768166. I don't know if you know anything about this child. The records do not indicate age or gender and only say child of Wm. Boyd. It seems like it may be the Wm. Boyd for which you created a memorial but your Wm. would have been older. He is the only Wm. though that was living at the time.

If you would like I will transfer the child's memorial over to you if you are working on the Craig family.

I want to thank you for finding and photographing my relative's gravestone. I can now add this to my family tree. I have been working on my family tree for years and having this information is invaluable for me. Thanks ever so much again.
