Bio and Links
I work on Find A Grave because I love to do it! I am dedicated to doing a good job so if you see any mistakes I have made or want to add additional information to a memorial I maintain please feel free to contact me.

If you send me an edit please send me sources if it is something that can't be verified by an obit or census records. I have added info to memorials from contributor suggestions only to be confronted by other contributors challenging the info. If I cannot verify the info myself I will add it under the bio section along with your contributor name.

Many of my memorials are for Shippensburg, PA. Please note that Shippensburg is in two counties: Cumberland and Franklin. If an obit on a memorial states a person was born or died in Shippensburg but does not state which county I am unable to add Shippensburg to the place of birth/death field unless you can provide me with a street address.

I genuinely care about the memorials I create for Find A Grave and the people those memorials represent. It is not a numbers game to me. It is not my intention to amass a large quantity of memorials. My desire is to create accurate, lasting tributes and to be able to aid family members and loved ones now and in years to come who may be doing genealogical research.

Joseph Buckwalter - Spring Hill Cemetery

I am curious where you found the dates for Joseph Buckwalter (memorial 139696299) at Spring Hill Cemetery in Shippensburg. I am attempting to place with particular person and have only found one possible reference to him in the 1810 Newton, Cumberland, PA census. Also, do you know from which church cemetery was he disinterred?

Thank you for the 'Death Certificate' of John Pomeroy. Just now looking over all memorials and finding all kinds of 'Surprises'... I love it!!

RE: Mervin
No I did not know him or his family. I am in the process of looking at all the headstone applications for WWII veterans and happen to be in the letter "V" at this time. Just a strange coincidence. Let me know if I can help you in any way. Jan

Thank you so much for the info on the Russells! I was hoping they were there, too, but wasn't sure. Susanna's death certificate just said Shippensburg, but didn't give the cemetery name.

I'm not related, but I've been researching some of the Reisterstown families & descendants for our local cemetery project. I will definitely add to George's bio!

Thanks again!

RE: Elaine Burkholder
I believe I sent you her mother's number to link to. Check edit tab at top of your findagrave page where your contributor number is.

RE: Elaine Burkholder
you are welcome, just added her mother's memorial to Find A Grave. Elaine's birth year was 1953 instead of 1952

RE: Newville Cemetery
Not any problem at all, and thank you. Like the layout of this Cemetery, and will be hunting down any requests.
