Bio and Links
I have been a genealogist for the great majority of my life, and am amazed by the power and richness of Findagrave. It is an honor to contribute.

All of the memorials associated with this account (I manage another account for volunteer work) are for blood relatives of mine or their spouses. Some remarkable volunteers created a number of these and have graciously transferred them to my care. Note that I have built a large number of virtual cemeteries for my ancestral families. I am in the process of breaking some of the larger ones down into more manageable groupings.

Please visit my virtual cemetery of direct ancestors before requesting a transfer. If you are more closely related to one of my ancestral aunts, uncles or cousins and your request is within Findagrave guidelines, I will be glad to transfer the memorial to you if you will explain your connection.

If you are more closely related to the person in the memorial than I am, but your request is outside Findagrave guidelines (i.e., the person is not your near direct ancestor), I will be glad to consider transferring it to you if you will explain your connection in detail and let me know how you will build out the memorial.

Linking children or getting children linked to your relative, and sponsoring the memorial, are good indicators that you are committed to improving the data.

Also, if you are a direct descendant of anyone for whom I have created or maintain a memorial, I will gladly add a link to your profile from that memorial noting that you are a descendant. Just ask.

I welcome contact about any of my ancestral families, and hope the information I have posted is of help to you. If you want to contact me, please leave a public message or join Findagrave and send a message through the edit function at one of my memorials. I am always glad to meet new cousins, or reconnect with old ones.

We are put on this planet to give of ourselves as we can to the people around us and the strangers we meet. In the interest of accuracy and fostering appreciation of our ancestors, we should try to share information with our kin and the public as much as we possibly can. If our ultimate purpose is not to disseminate what we have learned, then we are just navel-gazing.

Acts of genealogical kindness always come back in kind one way or another. It might not be direct or immediate; but I have found this "pay it forward" principle to be true time and again as a genealogist.

Finally, I believe graves and the memory of our ancestors are sacred things, and foremost the responsibility of family. We are commanded to honor our mothers and fathers. And it is a blessing for ourselves as well when we help others to do this.

Special thanks to the following contributors for their volunteer work and their many kindnesses: Wayne Irons, Scott Balyer, Carol Foss, Judy Ryan, Donna Jones, Leigh Miller, Jessi-Schnittchen, T.V.F.T.H., Albuquerque Firefly, Sharri Bodnar, Steve Grove, Hamilton Square Presbyterian Church (Jean Woodman), Mary Ann Missimer-Moore, Bill McCrea, Rob Minteer, Debbie Davis, Rebecca Evans, Clara McIver, Kathy Smith, James Seidelman, Mary Harrell-Sesniak, the late Meg Stevens, Graves (West Laurel Hill Cemetery), The Bull, Walter Hellerman, Larry Krueger and Jenny. I am simply in awe of all of them.

What a wonderful resource Findagrave is.

Larry Krueger
Eglington Cemetery
I was just trying to clean up folders that were on my desktop to be sure I hadn't forgotten some stuff over the busy winter and ran across one with your name on it and it was full of photos from Eglington.
I went through them and found they were from memorials you have now from Breeze that I transferred to you. I remember some I transferred and some I cleaned up photos and must have replaced them for the memorial with a slightly cleaned up one. I also saw a couple I missed so I put on what I had. Something is better then nothing right?
If I forgot to do something since the last we spoke PLEASE remind me! It's been a busy winter and things may have slipped past me!
But my main reason for writing was to tell you THANK YOU. I noticed on some you added a note thanking me for pictures and transfers. I was totally surprised. That was very kind of you. It was not necessary for you to do, but it is nice to know someone appreciates the work volunteers do out here for families and especially nice to see someone still remembers what what being polite and manors are.

Rocky Hill transfers
Hi Joe - I'm not related to anyone in this cemetery. I used to work over that way - and would periodically escape the cube farm to copy the stones. This was before all the linking capabilities were added to Find A Grave. the two requested have been transferred - and let me know if anyone else shows up.

Martha Jones Howell
I have added a note indicating that Martha died in Philadelphia and the exact location of her grane is not know. I think her name was on the memorial, but I am not sure, it was too long ago. Hope this is ok. If not, let me know.
