Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in New York City, I grew up in New Jersey where I still reside. I started researching my family in the early 1980s after my two daughters were born. Between my family and my wife's family, I have information on more than 80 surnames. Since many of my family lines have ended in brick walls, I enjoy helping others by visiting cemeteries and posting photos on this website. The photo is of the gravesite of my Foster ancestors buried in Waitsfield, Vt.

Thank you, Slay, for checking and finding no record for my 5X great grandmother in the Pleasant Hill Cemetery. I have edited her memorial accordingly and removed the photo request. Best, Douglas Marshall-Steele

Thank you for the photo of our classmate Marilyn's final resting place.
She was such a sweet girl growing up in Wharton, Rockaway back in the 1950-60s was a very special small town time.
We recently had our Morris Hills Regional High school class reunion and remembered her.

RE: George Wade, Memorial Park Cemetery
There are only 4 memorials on that particular plot for the Wade name. None of them are George. The one you see in the photo is Robert F Wade, Sr. The cemetery lists 9 with the Wade name.

RE: Vesta A. Waid, Waid Cemetery
Well, I actually DO have another source - her husband John Waid's obit: Titusville Herald, 12 Aug 1907, pg 2, specifically states who her parents were...

"Mr. Waid was married in 1943 to Miss Vesta Ann Matthews, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Matthews, who then resided upon a part of what is now the Waid homestead."

I'll add your source as alternate info, since I was only documenting a cemetery that was not yet documented. But I seriously doubt if the History of Crawford County, altho a great reference, is absolutely correct all the time.

Conrad's grave marker photo
Thanks so much for taking this photo of my dad's grave marker. It was covered up when we were there for my step-mother's burial.

RE: Secrest ancestors
Slay, I checked my tree and all the Secrest that I have listed came from Va/WVa and settled in the Guernsey Co., Ohio area. There are so many Secrest's and they all seem to have the same names in every family. :) Good luck in your search. Sorry I couldn't be of any help.
