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 Battalion 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 names Sarah and parents were George & Catherine Mock. They were from "SUPPOSEDLY" living between Sharpsburg and Middletown, Washington & Fredrick County, MD.

RE: Rosedale and Greenhill Cemeteries
I took my picture down for Mr. Jones. Yes, your picture showed the headstone in better condition. If you have more, just let me know as you post them. I try to be very careful with these memorials because they are someone's loved one.

Rosedale and Greenhill Cemeteries
As you know, I have been adding pictures from Rosedale but I keep running into headstone where the death certificate states Green Hill. Any advise on how to hand this? Thanks, Amanda

Thank you so much for the photo. I am trying to get as many photos of my family as possible. I don't know if you get to Elmwood Cemetery in Shepherdstown much but I am looking for my 3rd Great Grandmother Rachael Hawn Kidwell, her husband James and her parents Michael and Mary Hawn. I can't seem to get in touch with the caretaker there to see if there are redords for them.
Again thank you so much for the photo.
