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.

Very glad to help, Mike, and to know that my work and time appreciated. Makes it all worthwhile. And if you're ever in the area, I'll gladly take you up on the frosty beverages! Take good care.

Ida Osborne
Hi! I found John Osborne in the plot listed, also found a James Osborne next to him. However there is no marker for Ida. She should be buried with him per Lawncroft.com. I have added a picture under James Osborne.

HI! I tried looking up Ida Helms on Lawncroft.com, there is no listing. Is she buried with someone else maybe?

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 :-)

Transfer
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.
