Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a university educated historian, genealogist and cemetery buff living in Raleigh, North Carolina.

My personal genealogical interests are mostly in the Philadelphia area; surnames include Helms, Colflesh, Schick, Henry, Pile, Harned, Stroup and Mowday.

I am also researching my family in northwest Pennsylvania; surnames here include Monago, Monaco, Leone, Monti and Saplesa.

My academic research at North Carolina State University focuses on a number of prominant reconstruction-era families in the Alamance County area including Long, Wood and Albright. I'm also deeply involved in research about the Rollin White and Lucius Pond families in Massachusetts.

I do a lot of "row mowing" with my camera and I'm happy to transfer ownership of a memorial to friends and family of the deceased.

Calvary Baptist Church Cemetery

Hi there Michael :::waving::: Do you know whether this church: Calvary Baptist Church Cemetery used to have another name? I've been searching for Missouri Baptist Church Cemetery, and can't find any GPS for it. This makes me wonder whether the name of the Church, hence, Cemetery has been changed over time? Any help is appreciated. Thanks. Sandi :-)

Thanks for looking for the headstones for Alexander O'Neal and Albert O'Neal in Woodland Chapel Baptist Church Cemetery. Your help is much appreciated.

I apparently transferred the grave of ____ Geer to a KBStewart years ago. I was successful in trans. the grave of _____ Johnson, however. (Don't have the names in front of me, sorry).

Thank you for taking the time to photograph the headstone for Infant Bowles. I apologize for taking so long to respond. I don't contribute to Find a Grave any longer.

Thank you for trying to obtain a photo of the headstones for Albert and Alexander O'Neal in the Woodland Chapel Baptist Church Cemetery. I guess they do not have headstones.

Thanks for trying.
