Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am Dave Backus, I co-own the Backus Family History web site. I live in Elmira Heights, New York. I am originally from the Oswego County, New York area.
You have my permission to use any GRAVESTONE PICTURES taken by me for private uses. For public use, you may use them as long as I AM GIVEN CREDIT. For commercial use, please contact me. ANY OTHER PHOTOS MAY NOT be used without WRITTEN permission on ANY SITE!
I have been doing genealogy since 2003. I enjoy walking thru the cemeteries and taking photos of the real old stones, wanting to preserve them, because someday they will be gone or unreadable.

My Main Line of Research:

My wife's side:

Plus many more branches. Most are from Vermont, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Pennsylvania, but family is scattered thru out the United States, Canada and England.

While many of my memorials ARE related to me, there are quite a few that are not. I have no problem transferring the non related memorials to family, it doesn't have to be by the FAG guide lines. All you have to do is ask! If you do not get the transfer it means that that person is related to me.

Also I know most of the time I do not get to thank everyone for the photos and memorials, and the corrections. So a BIG THANK YOU!

You were so nice to transfer this page so I could keep working on it. Thanks so much. I didn't see your page listed under Potts because I hadn't gotten to that marriage yet and she was buried as a Richey, so I didn't realize I had made a duplicate page until the dates jarred my consciousness. That's when I asked for a transfer so I could combine the info and delete my new page, but you were so kind to already start the process. Thanks again! I've been searching for WISE family members for 2 days and trying to link everyone up. You are welcome to have her back if you like once I get all my info added. Isn't it interesting that I can find the second husband's parents, but not the second husband? Appreciate your generosity!

RE: Barbara Comfort Memorial
By the way, I went to EFA with a Paul Backus, graduating around 1966 or 1967. Any relation to your Backus family?

Thanks for taking the time and energy to snap a photo of his memorial. I've been spending a lot of time recently researching him and his family's line. It means a lot to me! Mark Hayden

RE: Ray Manwaring Photo
Do you by chance know the Manwaring family? I'm piecing together a branch of my family that I know little about.
