Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was raised in Elizabethville, PA but now living in Oak Harbor, WA Am retired and doing genealogy for the E'ville Richter family and Isaac W. Mattis family.

I am also doing memorials for my wife's family, Ackley, Priboth, Herbert & Jones. Please see the Ackley Virtual Cemetery for names.

I have completed entering memorials for Maple Grove Cemetery in Elizabethville. If I erred on any memorial please let me know so I can make the correction.

Am also making a virtual cemetery for all veterans in Maple Grove. Please let me know if I miss someone who is in the Find A Grave list.

If you wish to copy a photo I have posted remember they are copyrighted. Credit me with the photo. I have started letting any site with my photos credited to others know they are not theirs.

Thanks to the wonderful ladies that helped post photos from Rome and Florence National Cemeteries.

24 Oct 2015 I just finished adding about 1200 photos to memorials in Maple Grove. However there are still many memorials that are without photos of their headstones. Anyone wishing an unedited copy please email me and I'll be happy to send back by email. this is for only photos that I have taken.

George W. Uhler

Note that Pvt. George W. Uhler (memorial no. 105743502) served in the 127th PA Inf. You can read it on the stone if you look carefully. I posted his service card on his memorial page. I'd be grateful if you could correct this in his bio.

Finton grave
My husband and I spent quite a bit of time yesterday walking Maple Grove Cemetery looking for the grave of his grandparents, Malvin and Ella Finton with no luck. We just stumbled upon your photos of the gravesite!
Your info shows Section 31, Lot 36-1. Is there anyway you can describe where we might find this section when we enter the cemetery?
Thanks so much for giving us hope we will find it!

RE: Mattis?
I sent you one or two e-mails.

RE: Mattis?
My Mattis ancestor arrived in Philadelphia 28 Aug 1750 aboard the ship Two Brothers. He settled in what is now Montgomery county, near Skippack. I am trying to find info on a grandson named John Mattis, born 4 May 1780 in Worcester Twp, died about 1833 in Limerick. I also have a 6th cousin who is researching Mattis family from the same common ancestor. Any help would be appreciated. My email address is
