Bio Photo Regarding sharing of my photos:

HELP YOURSELF!! Nothing pleases me more than helping people find their relatives, which may even turn out to be me. Unfettered access to such priceless photos and info benefits us all. And it can be hard or impossible to visit the cemeteries yourself sometimes, so I enjoy helping.

Note: On many of my memorials, there might be a lot more info provided than is apparent from the headstones. This is because I cannot resist the urge to research the people named on those headstones. I will use ancestry.com, newspapers.com, familysearch.org, et al, to fill in some blanks, to make the memorials more useful. This is especially true if the surnames are Smith or Jones. While I have no Smith or Jones in my direct ancestry, I have experienced the difficulty of researching those family names. I cannot pass a Smith or Jones headstone in a cemetery without photographing it!

My favorite location to shoot headstone pictures is western PA, which is where my ancestors all lived after their arrival from Europe. I visit the area often to visit cemeteries and photograph headstones, and will most certainly take pix of anyone whose last name is on the list below, no matter who they are.

I also am fond of photographing any headstones for the Smith and Jones surnames, military veterans, and very young children.

If you see a memorial that has an error, needs linked to someone, or that you'd like to manage, please just ask!! The more we gravers communicate with each other, the more accurate the info will be for all.

Surnames of interest to me are:
ADAMS
CAPOSELL
CABOSSEL
CARY
CAUGHEY/McCAUGHEY/McCOY
DIEGELMAN
DOMAN
FUCHS
HARPER
HARTSUFF/HARTSOUGH/HARTSOUF
HENNON/HENNION
LOVE
McCONAHY/McCONAUGHY
McLEAN/MACLEAN
MORROW
PIERCE/PEIRCE
RITCHIE/RITCHEY
SECREST

RE: Fuchs and Fey
I am always so happy when someone finds a relative.

When I see a monument with multiple people listed I try to post all sides of the monument. Usually, they are related somehow. It is helpful when the people have a common name like Smith or Miller.

I am sorry but I am not related. This is one of the older cemeteries in Pittsburgh and anyone with roots here usually has someone in St Mary or Allegheny Cemetery.

I am always happy to reunite family and would be happy to transfer them to you.

McLean's
They are not on my direct line but they are on my uncle's. My paternal uncle married a McLean. I was able to find death records for more of their children and added them to Find A Grave. I don't have their husband's up there yet. I am going to try to find obituaries as well.

Elizabeth Keck's father is buried at Good Hope Cemetery in Mercer and I suggested you link her to her dad. I can't verify that - I found a tree on Ancestry that said he died on his farm near Greenville, Mercer, PA and that is where he is buried.

I have NO idea where her mother is buried. I have her name as Elizabeth "Betsy" Loutzenhiser. I don't if that is correct. Her last name is spelled so many ways.

I am obsessed about genealogy so when able to find stuff about my relative's families, I try to get them on Find A Grave. I LOVE Find A Grave. It has helped me tremendously to fill in the gaps.

My email is you like is: jane421@gmail.com

Fox/Fuchs
Kenneth E Fox is a family member ... thank you very much for the use of the photo! I see you are interested in the Fuchs surname, I believe our first ancestor in this line was Heinrich Fuchs/Henry Fox from Alsace-Lorraine.

McConahy Family
I was wondering if you are related to Mary Virginia McConahy 1847-1918 who married John Foreman Mitchell 1843-1920? They are both from the Pulaski Township area in PA. I am always looking for relatives and I look forward to hearing from you.
