Bio and Links
I work on Find A Grave because I love to do it! I am dedicated to doing a good job so if you see any mistakes I have made or want to add additional information to a memorial I maintain please feel free to contact me.

I want the memorials I create and maintain to be correct and honest. I do not want to perpetuate incorrect information that may be found on some genealogical sites. I strive for accuracy. If you send me an edit please send me sources if it is something that can't be verified by an obit, death certificate or census records. In the past I have added info to memorials from contributor suggestions only to be confronted by other contributors challenging the info. If I cannot verify the info with a source I will add it under the bio section along with your contributor name.

Many of my memorials are for Shippensburg, PA. PLEASE NOTE that Shippensburg is in two counties: Cumberland and Franklin. If a resource states a person was born or died in Shippensburg but does not identify which county I am unable to add Shippensburg to the place of birth/death field unless you can provide me with a street address.

Please also note there is a Southampton Township in Franklin County and a Southampton Township in Cumberland County.

If you take a better picture of a stone for a memorial please let me know and I will remove mine. Also, if you would like me to retake a photo of a stone just ask. When I started Find A Grave, I had an older software that did not allow me to straighten or crop pictures.

I genuinely care about the memorials I create for Find A Grave and the people those memorials represent. It is not a numbers game to me. It is not my intention to amass a large quantity of memorials. My desire is to create accurate, lasting tributes and to be able to aid family members and loved ones now and in years to come who may be doing genealogical research.

RE: Mary Kitzmiller
Hi Sherry,

I have been doing extensive research on the Kitzmillers as my husband's cousin is a Kitzmiller descendant & has asked me to look into the family.

Although we do not seem to be related to Silas Edward Kitzmiller, I do make edits when I find them and only when there is a reliable source or more than one. Since I found his wife's middle name in two sources I made the edit. They are:

1. On their son, Harry Abram Kitzmiller's claim for social security, his mother's name is listed as Catherine Hoover and his father's name is listed as Silas E. Kitzmiller.

2. On an ancestry family tree belonging to the Herring Family, she is listed as Mary Catherine Hoover Kitzmiller.

Hope these will be sufficient.

John C & Marth Anne (Harris) Martin
I also have another more detailed verified source. I will not send you where to find that information on a public message board. If you would like that also, just send me an email & I will be happy to supply you with that proven-verified genealogy web site.

RE: edits
The public information for Martha Anne & John Martin was taken from an approved membership application for the Ohio Society of the Sons of the American Revolution approved Dec 1, 1952. Patriot was David Line. I found it on ancestry listed under David Line, Daniel Line & Martha's mother Eliza Line-Harris.

I read his death info. Now more confusion. The son of Daniel & Hannah (Allen) Line, was born Shippensburg, Cumberland Co. PA, not in West Virginia. Also birth date in 1883, of his son William C, PA death cert# 105129,conflicts with that of a son Donald 1883, on his Find A Grave page. Two Levi's could happen. Two with same birth and death dates, no. So I think the confusion started years and years ago, before our time. After I sent you the message yesterday, I also requested photos for his two pages and his wife Lucy's three pages. Hopefully these will help resolve the questions.

Duplicate memorials
There seems to be a lot of confusion. 54434603 & 148805091 are the same person. The name Lyne, Line & Lein were all used by this family. Levi Lyne, Line and his wife Lucy (Bingham) both have more than 1 memorial. It is a mess, that needs to be resolved. If you need help, we can start at the beginning with the Bio Annals of Cumberland County, Page 386 & continue on with the trail of documentation found at ancestry. Yes, I am decended from this family and it can be difficult to piece together.
