Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired in April 2005. I started doing genealogy in August 2005. It all started with my wife, Dianne,(Dianne E. Smith) and her interest. I've enjoy traveling to many cemeteries. Dianne would say, "My best friends were all cold". She passed away, November 12, 2007.

I have since married Bonnie (Snow) Johnson in 2009. I told her I would do my best NOT to let grass grow under her feet. Together, we enjoy "grave searching" for others as we can.

If you would like to use any photos I may have posted, all we ask if you give credit to us something like, "Photo courtesy of member #47060899".

RE: Ladd and Benson Photos
That correct. :-) Wasn't planning on going out today but we are to get a big storm tomorrow. We might get 6+ inches of new snow and the temps are dropping so this might be it for a while - tramping through cemeteries.

RE: Ladd Headstones at Edgewood Cemetery
and I would have but I needed to get out of the house. This week end will be a little warmer so I will head out again.

As an aside. I could not figure out why I wasn't getting any requests for my area so I checked my profile the other day and discovered that I was back to only my zip code. Now I feel better and will start to check off the requests as time and weather and snow levels permit.

I'm glad I could help you out. It was a nice day to be outside so I enjoyed the trip to Easton...
