Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you contact me, please take a moment to say hello, good morning, or hey how are ya. On occasion I get "suggest a correction" notices that are brief, abrupt, and unfriendly in tone and seem more like robot communication than actual human beings. It's a personal pet peeve and I don't react well to those sorts of messages. A little simple human courtesy goes a long way with me.

I research my family history in southwestern and south central Pennsylvania for the most part, although I live in northeastern New Jersey. Counties of interest include Bedford, Blair, Franklin, Fulton, Somerset, Westmoreland, Cambria, Fayette, Washington, Indiana, and others.

PLEASE: If you request an interaction with me, whether to discuss a memorial or request a transfer, please do not be "Anonymous" and not provide any means to contact you. I recently had someone request a transfer but when I tried to contact the person, was told that the submitter was anonymous and there was no way to leave a public message for him or her. I'm not comfortable with this method of communicating. Thanks.

PLEASE: If you write to me via "Suggest a Correction" PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE provide me with evidence in the form of some kind of documentation for any edits you'd like me to make. This is especially true if I don't already know who you are. It's not possible for me to simply accept what someone out of the blue tells me is valid without sources, documentation, proof or some other compelling argument. Sorry to sound like a grouch, but that's just the way my work goes.

You're very welcome! I enjoyed searching, and the grave is old and beautiful.

Would you have any more information on Thomas Bonner's wife, Florence A.? Could she possibly be the daughter of Quintin Geddes #102823219 & his second wife Mary Jane Gardner #102823231 in Grandview Cem. in Johnstown PA?
Thank you so much for all your research & the obituaries that you have placed on the memorials.

RE: Lear
No problem. I either linked, or requested to have links established for all of the children of John & Cadilla Lear. There's a daughter at Richland Cemetery and one in Berlin, and Eugene is in Altoona.

Hi Michael,

I am looking for a great grandfather who was buried in Zimmerman Cemetery in 1910. There are no records at the cemetery for him but I noticed he had the same undertaker that your relative did - J.D. Schaub, Knoxville, Pa. Do you have any information on this undertaker or how to get to his records?
