Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired mechanical engineer with an interest in genealogy since 1976, and a home computer since 1986.

My sister first got me interested in our family history when she copied some old photos and sent them out to the family as part of her "1776 Bicentennial celebration". After years of research, we haven't found any ancestors who were rich or famous, but the real story we uncovered is better than anything we could have made up.

I'm interested in:
Beaver, Bower, Curran, Darlington, Dugger, Loy, Lupfer, McClure, Monasmith, Pflanz, Pollard and Schlott.

Monasmith is of German origin, and many Manneschmidt households can be found today in the German state of Hessen. In America, the name has been re-spelled as Mahnenschmidt, Monasmith, Monesmith, Monismith, Monosmith and several other variations. Although not gifted in spelling, we are all cousins. We are all descended from Christian Mahnenschmidt (1680-1746), who immigrated to Pennsylvania in 1719.

I have been working on the families of Perry County, and Cumberland County, Pennsylvania for several years now. As a result, I have registered several hundred graves there that are not related to my families, and I would be happy to transfer to any relative.

I'm also working on memorials for the alumni of Frankfurt American High School, and for the Class of 1961 of Wichita High School North. Old friends are not forgotten.

On memorials, I like to see photos of the of the person taken when they were young, as well as later in life.

Then we need one close-up photo of the grave marker, and a wide-angle shot to show the whole monument or adjacent graves.

For the genealogists, I like to add scans of the public documents that chronicle the events of the person's life: Birth Certificate, Marriage Certificate, Death Certificate, Census Records, etc. A $5 donation will increase the photo limit to accommodate this trove of original source materials.

First of all I do NOT even belong to Ancestry...
Second I do NOT post photos unless it is of my family...
I removed the pic of the grave marker. I had taken some pics while I was in that cem...

DO NOT accuse someone of something without first asking how the item was acquired...

you are rude

Thanks for your note. I will check with the sexton to see if we can figure out why he is listed in Oakland's records, complete with burial location. Perhaps one location is a cenotaph, and maybe the records will indicate whether the body was reinterred, or if the stone in Dekalb represents a memorial.

RE: Monasmith graves
Your welcome. I have a bunch more to load up for Greenlawn Cemetery if you have more interest there. It may take a few more days, but when I go to one like that, I shoot all the headstones and then sort them out.
