Bio and Links
Bio Photo Regarding sharing of my photos:

HELP YOURSELF!! Nothing pleases me more than helping people find their relatives, which may even turn out to be me. Unfettered access to such priceless photos and info benefits us all. And it can be hard or impossible to visit the cemeteries yourself sometimes, so I enjoy helping.

Note: On many of my memorials, there might be a lot more info provided than is apparent from the headstones. This is because I cannot resist the urge to research the people named on those headstones. I will use,,, et al, to fill in some blanks, to make the memorials more useful. This is especially true if the surnames are Smith or Jones. While I have no Smith or Jones in my direct ancestry, I have experienced the difficulty of researching those family names. I cannot pass a Smith or Jones headstone in a cemetery without photographing it!

My favorite location to shoot headstone pictures is western PA, which is where my ancestors all lived after their arrival from Europe. I visit the area often to visit cemeteries and photograph headstones, and will most certainly take pix of anyone whose last name is on the list below, no matter who they are.

I also am fond of photographing any headstones for the Smith and Jones surnames, military veterans, and very young children.

If you see a memorial that has an error, needs linked to someone, or that you'd like to manage, please just ask!! The more we gravers communicate with each other, the more accurate the info will be for all.

Surnames of interest to me are:

Sorry, of course it's Betsy! I had just corresponded with a friend named Nancy. I guess she was still in my mind.
If it's ok with you, I could add them back to F.A.G.
Also, are you related to Guy Ulysses Stevenson who lived in Venango and married Alena (Lena) Limber?
They moved to Illinois and are on my tree. Their son was Herbert.
You may call me anything except late for dinner.
Best regards,

Biel & Stevenson
Hello again, Nancy.
The parents of J Lawrence Stevens appear to have been removed from F.A.G. According to each of their death certificates, they were buried in the Stevenson Cemetery, the same as J Lawrence and his wife. I know that the death certificate is no guarantee that they are indeed there. Is it possible you could confirm one way or the other whether or not they are there?
Marshall Sumner Stevenson b 1862 d 1951, Sarah "Sadie" Biel Stevenson b 1860 d 1944.
I can email attachment of a copy of their death certificates if that would help.
Thank you.
Best regards,

I believe Matthew Fields and my 3rd great grandmother, Mary Fields (married name: Milbourne) are brother and sister. Do you any more about his family? You have him listed under your "Find A Grave" site and am hoping you can provide me with more information.
Thanks, Joan Milbourne Heinicke

J/Jay Lawrence Stevenson
Hello Betsy,
Regarding J/Jay Stevenson, my understanding is that he only had an initial for his first name as that was the naming style of the day when he was born. He does appear on his WWI draft registration and his marriage record as Jay. However, it may be that officials insisted on a first name so he just spelled out his initial. I respectfully request that he be changed to J Lawrence Stevenson.
Best regards,
Barbara Long
