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, Soppelsa, Bonitate, Di Victoria, Da Corte Cavalier, and Maufioe.

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.

A very special thank you Mr Michael Helms
Thank you so very much Mr Helms for placing the photo of my great grand parents headstone. Omg I can't explain to you how good it felt to see those two names of at least two of not only my ancestors but my heroes as well. I'm creating a tree for my children, grandchildren and so on. One day as I just about give up,,, something said Karen check that find a grave site. Sure enough there they were Mack & Amanda Holloway and everything matched up perfect. I just wanted you to I truly appreciate you. I'm now on the hunt for Mack's parents Clem & Agnes Holloway. Again thank you so very much.
