Bio and Links
Bio Photo Since I developed an interest in finding my roots, Find A Grave has been a great resource. If more people would connect family links when possible, it would be even better.

One of my grandfathers was born in Tonawanda, NY. His father emigrated to NY from Germany in 1881, married a German-American woman, and lived in a house on the bank of the Erie Canal.

My other grandparents were born in Florida, with their ancestors moving south into Georgia and Florida from Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina.

I am interested in the names Gillett(e), Licht, Brantley, and Page. Also, I have interest in related families that the Gillett(e)s married into, such as Boston, Richards, and Stewart.

Notable ancestors (not necessarily famous):

James Alderman
James Harris Brantley
Daniel Gillett
Charles Wesley Hendry
Herman Charles Licht
Marion Washington Page

If you are a relative of a memorial I have entered, I will be happy to transfer maintenance to you if I am not related, or my relatives if you are more closely related than I am.

When I take photos of grave markers, I don't try anything fancy. I go for maximum readability of the inscriptions. Sometimes this means manipulating the picture in Photoshop, leaving the marker lighter or darker than it actually is.

You are welcome to use my photos of markers for any non-commercial purpose, such as personal family trees, or posting on Ancestry.com and similar sites. I can usually provide a higher resolution copy should you need one.

P.S. If you contact me and don't have messages enabled or a pubic email, you're not going to hear back from me. Why would you do that?

Hi, Hank!

I just wanted to see if you have a connection to Gladys Howell Best (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Best&GSiman=1&GScid=72074&GRid=29941218&)? She is my great-aunt. Maybe we have a connection to each other through her.

Sincerely,
Ashley
