Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for about ten years now. I am a member of the DAR and Mayflower Society, and I am constantly working to find and document anything interesting about family members. It is a very consuming hobby, but the rewards are great.
If anyone finds mistakes, needs to add info or needs me to make any changes at all just let me know. PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB on the memorial page, it does make it easier for me to do quickly.
I do appreciate any extra info that I can add to my memorials. If I have taken a picture and it is not clear please let me know and I will be glad to go retake it, or if you would like a higher quality sent to you by email, I will try to do that.

The Proper Way to Clean a Headstone
from the International Association of Cemetery Preservationists

It is recommended that clean clear natural spring water only be used for cleaning historical cemetery structures. Do NOT use harsh chemicals, high pressure hoses or equipment, or abrasive tools of any kind.

Use soft-bristled brushes with natural or plastic bristles. Never use a wire brush or any metal object for cleaning. Automobile detailing brushes are very handy for cleaning historic headstones and monuments.

At one time it was recommended to use shaving cream as a cleaning agent on headstones and monuments. This came about when cemetery photography became more popular and inscriptions couldn't be read well. Do NOT use shaving cream to clean headstones or monuments. It has now been found to damage the stone because of the often high levels of alcohol and menthol in the shaving cream.

Charles Burns
Hi, I noticed you have taken a few photographs at Lincoln Cemetery. I have had an open photo request for Charles Burns since March 2016 and no one has fulfilled it yet. I was wondering if you would mind taking the photograph for me. I would really appreciate it. Thank You for your consideration.

Hello. I see you have several members of the same family group here in Hollowell Cemetery in New Bedford PA. Do you have the family linkages? It is somewhat confusing to try and sort out the generational names. I believe many of the headstones are reconstructions.
I would appreciate any clarification you might be ale to give.
Thank you.

Thank you for adding the Grandy/Grandey family to the Slippery Rock Presbyterian Church Cemetery. Is it possible that there may be others there not yet found on Find A Grave?

We are looking for Joseph and Susannah Grandy both died in 1840-1841. Most of their children are buried in Slippery Rock. Although we have not been able to locate one son Isaac and one daughter Susannah or Susan which may be buried there too.

Thank you very much, if it helps please feel free to email us.
Your help is greatly appreciated!
