Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy helping people, photography and genealogy so visiting nearby cemeteries to provide photos is a natural fit and my pleasure.... besides it gives me some needed exercise!

If you see a memorial I created that you want to manage please email me and I will gladly transfer it to you. Please include your Contributor ID# that appears beside your name in your profile.

If you want to use any of the photos that I have taken and posted feel free to do so...just drop me a line, I may also have a different view of the photo.

I have copies of the old Philos Cemetery burial books and maps and also I have access to St James' Episcopal Church records here in Westernport.

Information for many of the Fazenbaker memorials is from the book " The Fazenbaker Family of Western Maryland" by Walter L. Warnick 1991.

I reside in Westernport, Allegany Co, Maryland

I have permission of the Piedmont Herald Newspaper to use their printed obituaries. The Herald is closed and no longer in business.

Thank you for taking her gravestone picture, I really appreciate your picture since I live in Indiana and don't know when I would be able to travel there to take the picture myself. Thanks again.

I am looking for a photo of the headstone of Amelia (Millie) Baker 1816- 8 May 1894. Also any information about the Baker family from that area. My grandfather was Joseph Granville Baker who, I believe, was Millie's grandson. My father was Joseph Granville Baker, Jr. I have been unable to find anything on this family. Thank you so much. My email is

Thank you for the great photograph of Richard Fairall's stone. Amazing isn't it, that a stone that old is still standing AND legible! I so appreciate your time and effort in obtaining the photo and posting it on Find A Grave.
