Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired high school math teacher and have been doing geneaology for almost 30 years with extensive research on my extended family. I have traced some lines back to the early 1600's with almost all lines into the 1700's. My family is all from either the Pfalz in Germany or from the counties of Carmarthenshire, Glamorganshire, Breconshire and Monmouthshire in Wales, and Gloucestershire in England. All of my lines settled in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The vast majority of my family is buried in Pittston Avenue Cemetery, Abington Hills Cemetery and Washburn Street Cemetery. Although many of my submissions are those of family members and family friends, many more are cemeteries that I have walked and recorded or graves near those which were photo requests. Sometimes I just walk cemeteries to record what is there. Even the best kept cemeteries have stones that are eroding and decaying. If we don't record this information that is there, it may disappear forever, as so many stones have.

I am not territorial. I post photos and information for everyone to share. I don't understand those who feel that they "own" information in a cemetery that is clearly there for to see. We all live in different places. How great it is to be able to share what is close to our homes with people from all over who can never visit a cemetery in person. Feel free to use any family photos for your personal use. It is not necessary to give me the credit. Just don't use them for profit. I abhor people who profit from the stolen work of others.

Although I welcome any corrections that you may find on my submissions and look forward to hearing from any family members or anyone else who is just plain interested, please do not contact me if you are not willing to leave your name. I don't deal with anonymous or someone hiding behind another name. I will happily transfer ownership of any page to any family members who politely ask, but please do not involve me in any family squabbles. I do this to help others and for fun. Let's keep it fun. If you send me obituaries, please include the newspaper name, date, and page number. Without that information, I will not add the obituary.

Just added you as a friend, friend. I've been adding my relatives to Find a Grave. I met a distant cousin through this site. ML

RE: Thomas Appleman

is that of my aunt with nice photo.

most of memorials I created are not of my family. and having discussed with others, I will add a photo to each of the ones who are buried in the "pauper's field" (there's over 700 of them).

See the star marker at this one

That's my great grand uncle and one photographer does that all the time according to her.

The subject of unmarked ones was brought up in F.A.G. Volunteer FB group. Doable with flowers, stars or flags as appropriate to mark the spot where the marker should be.

It was a pleasant surprise to see your name pop up on my request for headstone photos of the Wheeler sisters at Dunmore Cemetery. In the past, you were so very helpful in locating the headstones of many of my Stone family ancestors. I read that you are now retired. I wish you good headstone finds and pleasant weather.

Get a bunch of flowers to mark the spot and take photo of it.

Or you will get repeated requests from others.

There are saavy photographers who used flag, flowers or even a posted star to mark the spot.

RE: Thomas Lewis Alexander M.D.
Thank you for all the good work. I have sent a few links and corrections. Would you see if there is a Frederick Phillip Fleuchaus born around 1892 buried in this cemetery. He was listed in Yonkes New York 1940 Census. I do appreciate your expertise. Alfred Agee.

RE: Thomas Lewis Alexander M.D.
It will not be necessary to send photo's. I looked at James Lewis Alexander and did not see a photo of his marker. You placed his father's photo on his memorial. I hope this was an error and that he does have a grave stone. You help is greatly appreciated. Hope you had a great July 4th. Alfred Agee.
