Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up on Lions Den Road just south of Syracuse, NY. I attended and graduated from Onondaga Central School, class of 1965. I continued my education at Potsdam State University College, graduating in 1969 and entering the teaching profession. I taught grades 3-6 for 31 years before retiring in 2000.
My time is now taken up with baby sitting my grandkids, doing family genealogy, cataloging my mother's photo albums on my computer, and digital photography which includes photographing butterflies at our local zoo's butterfly house (Watertown, NY). I also guide visitors through the butterfly house when I'm there so they don't miss seeing the eggs, caterpillars, chrysalids, and butterflies identified for them. I share the interesting facts I've learned from field guides about the various butterflies. It's fun to hear the folks discussing something they learned as they leave.
As an update (Nov 2010), I've been volunteering as an animal keeper aid (shoveling manure, etc., LOL!!). Have made some dear friends with the animal keepers and other staff, and have been photographing the other critters of the zoo from much better vantage points. Have gotten some incredible pics!
This site has been a real treasure find. It's allowed me to share much family info with relatives far and near that might not otherwise have access.

Walter and Pauline Reed
I noticed that you have added some Reed memorials to the Redwood, NY cemetery. Was wondering if you were related to those Reeds. I am the grand daughter of Harry and Ruth Snell (Pauline Reed's parents and Walter Reed's in laws).

RE: Question
Orleans Cemetery

Ok, gotcha. I kind of figured that there was only one Orleans cemetery. I requested the Findagrave Powers That Be to merge these two together. Thanks for responding so quickly.

I see you took a photo of the outside of the Orleans Cemetery - There's also a listing for an "Old Orleans Cemetery" looks like duplicate memorial pages. You've been out there. Is this the same cemetery you think?
