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 errored on any memorial p;ease 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.

Sicily_Rome Cemetery
I have taken about 330 pictures there 25 June. Am posting them as fast as I can. Please know that
I crop most of the pictures to present a balanced picture. Should anyone wish to have the raw photo email me and will get it to your early Aug when I've returned home.

Anyone wanting to edit their loved ones' tablet inscription closer please send me an email and I'll send you I most likely have close to 1000 names from tablets and just do not have the time to crop each individual name.

Florence American Cemetery Memorial
Our daughter and one of her daughters helped with the photographs I've added. Theirs are the ones that were not on the request list so they are special to them. On the request photos I took 2 different poses for most. Anyone wanting copies please email me. Also if you wish to crop the memorial tablet photo I'll be happy to send it also. We took photos oa all the tablets and I'll be working on them in the comming months, 1400+ names. My email address is on this page.

Thank you "Jack" for taking the time to take a picture of my Uncle Bennie's grave. My mother is still alive and was trilled to see her brother's gave marker. Uncle Bennie left Shreveport, La. after being drafted in WW-2. The family never saw him again. He went to Camp Polk, Louisiana, then overseas. He was wounded, but not bad enough to send him home. He was sent back to the line.
My mother is the only surviving sibling. I am sorry it took so long to reply and Thank You.
I never knew my uncle as I was not born at the time he was killed, however I have heard stories all my life. I am determined for my children, grand children etc. to remember him and pass it on. Thanks again for all you do. Thomas Sapp

Buford Blair Creedle
Thank you for taking the photo of the monument. The family has always believed Blair as he was called was an MIA as of 1944. Then when I saw someone had posted his memorial I thought did they find him? Apparently not must be just plaques for the dead and the missing of the war there?

Thank you so much. He was my mother's cousin.
