Bio and Links
I've been working on my Family history since I was 11 years old. I started this because of a homework assignment and became hooked when Grandpa explained that he was Grandma's third husband. I had no idea!

I've used this site for a long time, gleaning little tidbits of information that I needed. Then it occurred to me that I may have information that someone else needs so I should give back. I signed up as a member and I've been adding my little tidbits as I find them. I hope it helps someone.


I have photo documented the Stafford Memorial Gardens up through last summer (2012) so now we just need to keep up with the new additions. But there are hundreds of unmarked graves in that cemetery.

I have taken all photos for the AMAA Cemetery in Brooke, Stafford/Fredericksburg, VA. All names and photos have been entered as of June 2013.

I have completed the photos for Rodef Shalom Cemetery in Cardiff, NJ. I will be entering those as I can. There are over 4000 photos so it may take me most of the winter to get them all entered!

I have taken photos of about 1/3 of the Beth Kehillah Cemetery in Cardiff, NJ. I have completed adding the photos that I have until my next trip. (Except for the ones that need translating from Hebrew to English.)

Also, if I claim a photo request for an area not local to me don't panic. It means that I was there and already have the picture and I will upload it once I return home from my travels. Along those lines - when I am traveling I may let you know that I have claimed one of your photo requests. If you will go ahead and request the rest of your family in that cemetery it helps because if I am running out of time, memory space in my camera, or battery I will try to concentrate on requests that have been made. :)

RE: Bobby Williams
Hello, Carol

Thank you.

I created the memorial for my Uncle Bobby the day after I returned from his funeral. I knew no one else in the family was active in Find-a-Grave. It did not dawn on me that someone outside the family would have already created a memorial for him. I apologize for my error . Thank you for your contributions to Find-a-Grave.

Fred H. Sherman
Moved Fred to his correct resting place. Thanks.

Also, put a period after his middle "H". Ten years I have been here and was told no period and now recently they have changed the rule!!!! What can I say!!!

Thanks for the help and all you do for everyone on Find A Grave.

I was wondering if you are related to Chris Wallace, as when I got his photo today I also found Harold Wallace not far from him and took his photo too. I've made him a memorial and if he's yours just let me know as I'd be glad to transfer him to you.

Ciculya in Beaver Meadows
Hello! I was recently in Ss. Peter & Paul Cemetery in Beaver Meadows, PA. I uploaded a photo for Christopher and added a few other Ciculyas. Just wanted to let you know, take a look if you are still interested. Bill Fisher, 'delancey23'

Transfer request
I usually don't ask for transfers, but I am requesting this one because I have additional information to add to the memorial and she was my mother-in-law (as a matter of fact, my name is in the obituary that you added to the memorial). :)

If you would please transfer the memorial for Marcia Lynn Terry Kling, # 97887849, I would be really appreciative!

Thanks for considering it my request!

Hi Carol,
I was wondering if you might have noticed a Homer Augustus Post (1876-1918) while you at the Brookside Cemetery in Shortsville, NY. His parents were Fred H. Post (1851-?) and Eunice A. Bliss Post (1853-1927). Thanks
