Bio Photo Retired military and living near Antietam battlefield.


If I have added a family member or a good friend, I am happy to transfer memorials. I am not bothered by F.A.G. guidelines in transfers. I am concerned about getting family members "back together." I DO transfer distant relatives since they SHOULD be with family.
I am also happy to transfer memorials of close friends as well as family.

REMEMBER, these sites are in memory of someones' ancestors. If you place a photo on a memorial, make it good enough that you would be happy with it on your own.

All men die...not all men really live.

I am looking for Charles & Flo Liddington. Flo died in 1972. Charlie was alive in 1974. They were my mothers' mother & step-father.
I believe they lived modestly within a half hour of Danville, PA. Also, I am searching for any info regarding the roster for the 33rd or 34th Battalions of the Maryland Militia. An ancestor I am searching for, Thomas Mock, who served with this unit in New Jersey in 1777 under George Washington. He had a wife named Sarah and parents were George & Catherine Mock. They were from "SUPPOSEDLY" living between Sharpsburg and Middletown, Washington & Fredrick County, MD.

Hi Ken,
It's been awhile since I've heard from you (through Find A Grave). I was wondering if you were still visiting all those cemeteries.
Thanks for the great photo. I appreciate all you do. Thanks! C

If you can transfer them to me I would appreciate it. I visited and took pictures on a very grey sky day and I think they were clearer possibly. Want to look them out and reassess. The only problem is that I have moved three times since I was there. Also Visited the area of Chanceford Twp., York Co., PA where they originated from circa 1783, on the same trip. Did find the grave of Mary over in Shepherdstown, markerless, but her husband does have a marker, as does his spinster sister (may have been purchased before Mary and Henry married.

That MYTA has sent me a message:
Find A Grave contributor myta has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Sarah Ann Strayer.
Link to memorial:
Link to contributor profile:

Their suggestion:
This is a duplicate of #66488770.

I "own" all of the Strayer's {ie Jacob Seibert, Sarah Ann, Adam Kreglow and Amanda Malvinah,and Sarah Ann Dallas "Dallie"(note sister Mary Catherine Seibert Strayer Clay Is over in Shepherdstown} in Green Hill Cemetery I have full names as known and birth and death info as known. They are my late husband's great-great grandparents and many of their children. I have a CD book with the Salt Lake LDS Library, "Nicholas Strayer of Chanceford and Berkeley". I would prefer to see the full names be the dominant site if possible but am totally at sea on how to make it happen.
Thanks- Glenda S Strayer
