Bio and Links
Bio Photo I must confess that I am a Genealogy addict for which there is no cure. Much to husband's dismay!

In past months I have not had the time for Find A Grave but I hope to get back in to it on a regular basis. With my crazy work schedule there never seems to be enough hours in my day, but I will try to respond to emails and edits as quickly as I can.

Although I have lived in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania for almost 40 years my family history runs through many states. Primarily PA, MT, WA, KY, MI, MO, ID, TN, OH, NC, CT AND NY..I seem to be finding "lost" relatives in new states all of the time.

It is not my intention to amass large numbers 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.

I am not a 'stickler' for the guidelines as they are only guidelines. I do not "own" the memorials that I create, unless I am directly related to them. If someone was near and dear to you and you would like the memorial, please ask.

If you see any mistakes in my postings, please let me know and I'll be sure to make the appropriate corrections.

Carol Esbenshade
Thank you
I am related to many of the Esbenshades buried in Strasburg Mennonite Cemetery. I recently discovered this site. Thank you for the photos and info. I have some of our family history going back to the 17th century in Germany. I may be able to fill in some gaps. Thanks for your interest and hard work in this project.

Carol Esbenshade, Lancaster, PA

Mary Tarbottom Stine
It was reported that there is no cemetery record of Mary Tarbottom Stine being buried in this cemetery. She is buried with her husband in Memory Gardens and is posted on find a grave (see the family links). Please remove this post as it is not correct info. Thank you. Sue Stine Mason (SM)

RE: John Michael Kinzer
Thanks so much! Catharina is on yours now, I don't know why, but I didn't see her there before. In any case, I will delete mine. Thanks again :)

RE: Nelson Family Cemetery
Hi Carolyn,
I didn't take this photo, it was posted on some months ago and I don't remember that person's name. It was stated, as far as I know, that these were the only 2 graves in this place. But it looked so overgrown, who really knows what we might find if we cleared that place out? I would love to see it then! I am a NELSON, which was Andrew's (and his brother, Isaac's) mother's line - Kasiah Nelson! Andrew & Isaac often were listed by their mother's surname of NELSON during their young lives in KY. They lived on what was then called "Nelson Branch" - large clan of Nelsons there. You are a Lowe? I know James Lowe married Andrew's daughter, Calista Athington.. Have been trying to track down these families for more than 23 years! My line comes down through Isaac Athington/Nelson. His son, (John) Wesley Nelson, and his son, Earl Nelson. Earl was my paternal grandfather. If you ever want to compare notes, please email me: !

RE: Gerald Dennin
Carolyn, I am at a loss as to what to do. When I go to the sites where I have posted photos on find a grave the photos look fine to me, right side up and all. You are the second person to notify me that the photos are either up side down or sideways. I am using an iPad Air to take the pictures and they are all right side up in my photos file. Any suggestions would be appreciated???

John Michael Kinzer
Hi - I wasn't aware but you already have a memorial for John Michael Kinzer. Is it possible that you could please connect his sister Catherine to yours (link is on mine) and also add to yours the transcription of the headstone? Then I will delete mine - thanks!

Thanks Carolyn. Audrey Lerew was helping me and she was thinking it was you because your name is under the pic. We will contact the other. Thanks so much, Sheila
