Bio and Links
Bio Photo When you send me enhancements/corrections and you do not provide the source, I will do a search to verify your information. If I cannot find a source, I will then do the correction, but will mention your name as the provider of that information.

Feel free to use my photos for your genealogy research, but please mention that you got the photo from findagrave.
Also, thank you to everyone who follows through and makes the enhancements that I send.

I use a mirror to reflect the sunlight off of the stones lettering. I have a cheap $10.00 mirror that is about 4 feet high. I can hold the mirror in one hand, and take the photo with the other hand.

A complete and searchable listing of the Hale collection is now available on To find it, click on "search" at the top of the screen. Bring down the drop down list, and click on "card catalog". Then, in the search box, type in "Hale". Then click on it, and you can do a name search. Be advised that not all names come up.

My family names are: Kerber, Kerper, Hartsock, Gray, Houck, Carper, Harpster, Gault, all in PA. My extended family names are Miller, Hager, Stamschror, all in Minnesota.

RE: Tuckers in Essex CT
My apology for not replying to your query about Essex Tucker/Tooker date sources. I have been slow learning to check my Find-A-Grave messages.
Please send the names you are interested in.

Edith Avery
They are my friend's grandparents. Family records, pictures, albums, etc. I am working to get her into a lineage society, and am now doing primary resource search. Will get the docs from CT. Their daughter Hazel was my friend's mother. You can trace Hazel and her father in the census; cannot trace Edith because of her early death. CT vital records are not online for this generation; will be paying $20 per to document.

RE: Mary (Harpster) Carper 53900619
Hi Irma,

I'm sorry but I do not have an obit for Mary Maria Harpster Carper. I was looking into the Harpster family for a friend & thought I would link up those that I found since they were not connected on find a grave. I found information on Mary Maria Harpster Carper from her PA death certificate and from the Social Security Claims index both online at I believe she was the aunt or great aunt of the person I was looking for.

Again, sorry I don't have any other information.
