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.

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.

Photo Requests
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.

Thanks for looking. I found the cemetery name from her death cert. Her husband is also buried there. Maybe no stone. I'll contact the cemetery to find a plot location.

Happy New Year.
