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.

Jack Schlappy
Hi Tom, Saw your record of John Schlappy grave in Abington Hills Cemetery. My mom was born in West Scranton (maiden name Price) and thinks she might be related to his first wife Bertha Rose, whose family came from Wales.
Is your Price line related in some way to either Jack Schlappy or a marriage relative of his?

Thank you for your efforts to take a photograph of my great-great-grandmother's and great-great-uncle's gravestones for me in Dunmore Cemetery. I am disappointed that no stones existed for them, but applaud your photos all the same. Best wishes, Ruth

Shoemaker Cemetery
I see you've posted pics from Shoemaker Cemetery in Dalton. I have family there - Gilberts (I think) and Jennings and Rineharts. I believe there is one more spot in the family plot, but I'm not sure how to determine that for sure. I haven't been able to find any contact info for the cemetary, and I don't live close. Since you seem to be a frequent visitor of the Lackawanna cemeteries, I wondered if you wouldn't mind jotting down the phone number for Shoemaker Cemetery so I can contact them? There seems to be a phone number on the sign you posted, but I can't make out all the numbers.
I very much appreciate any help you can offer.
