Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

If I claim a photo request for an area not local to me (Stafford, VA) 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. :)


I have taken 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! UPDATE: 20 MAR 2016 - I am down to only 783 more pictures to enter for this cemetery which at my current pace will take about 3 months. Once competed I will start on Mount Calvary, in Pleasantville. COMPLETED! I am now working on Mount Calvary.

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.) COMPLETED!

I have completed taking the pictures in Emeth Shalom Cemetery, Cardiff, NJ. I will hopefully complete entering them into FAG by the end of 2014! COMPLETED!

I have photo documented the Stafford Memorial Gardens, Stafford, VA 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. This cemetery buries people in the order received so it will be easy to keep updated.

Edits and Transfer requests should be made through the edit tab. Thanks.

RE: updates
Well that wasn't easy...I couldn't click on them either...I guess because there is no first or last name. I had to recreate the steps I took to get there...and that wasn't easy with my memory, or lack thereof! I think it must be # 115076663
and # 115076686.

I saw your partial obit added to the memorial and was wondering if you could send me a copy. And I would also like to know how you obtain those obits from the Baltimore Sun. I know very little about the family and would like to take care of some of the loose ends. My father was Roy E White the son of Henry E. White Jr. Thank you. My email is

Could you please transfer memorial # 95903397 for Bruce Bolling to me. He was my 1st cousin and I would like to add information.

Thank you,

Thanks for heads up. I deleted the duplicate, sent my info to the original contributor. I had mistakenly ended the last name with a k instead of an h, so the duplication didn't readily show up. Good catch! Thanks for all you do

Alice Fowler
Hello Carol,

I will make the changes for Alice Fowler; however the last time I did so another member told me to change it back to "Shackleford" because all of her children used that name. The argument made no sense to me, but certainly there is a bit of a mystery about the surname.

I descend from a long line of Shaklefords, but I cannot find this one in my notes. Of course that is a huge family with many branches.

If you happen to uncover the answer to this, please let me know. Thanks.
