Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an avid genealogist. Paternal lines of interest include Murphy, McLane, Jordan, Ruane, Stark, Hausrath, Farber, Engel, Robertson, Henning. Maternal lines of interest include Protani, Mastracci, Incitti, Fiori, Rosenberger, Fleckenstein, Kostohryz, Bednar and Cunat. I make a note when I am related to one of the people I add to the database, although sometimes I forget to do so. If you're a cousin, feel free to write me. I'm always happy to talk to kin.I have also "adopted" a few cemeteries in Baltimore which I have been trying to document. Lately, I have been making an effort to do some simple research on the people beneath the graves I have been photographing. If you are related to one of them and see any mistakes, please write and correct me. I would also be happy to take down any memorial or transfer it so that you can make your own for your relative.

I am also a writer and filmmaker.

Read my memoir "The Promise, or the Pros and Cons of Talking with God"

Ruth Helen Bridgeman Knoepfel
Hi Sean,
I believe your memorial for Helen should state she was the wife of Harry John Knoepfel not Harry John Knoepfel, Jr. Harry Jr.was her son.
Regards, Don Knoepfel

RE: Katie Amendt
Sorry I didn't get back sooner. I've been trying to find my Amendts on a census but haven't found it yet/ But,my Louis was born in 1896 & died in Binghamton, NY in 1970.He was married to Catherine Spaeder in 1922( my grandmother's 1/2 sister) . They had a child in 1923 who died the same day. They divorced after 1930 & he married Mildred who died in 1962, then he married Harriet. He had the following siblinga:Harry,Allen,Robert & Jack/ There are Amendt relatives around Niagra Falls . I tried to contact them but they didn't answer. So, it looks like you're not related to my Louis. Thank you for your reply,tho, I really appreciate it

RE: Huffers in Emmanuel Church Cemetary, Mount Solon VA
Sean Paul: After a bit of digging I determined that Deborah Lynn and I are indeed 6th cousins; our common ancestor is Johannes Hoffer(t) of Berks County PA. Deborah's great-great grandmother was Barbara Ann Huffer (1832-1897), a great-great granddaughter of Johannes. If you have access to, my Family Tree (HufferFamilies2013June28) has a lot of details about the descendants of Johannes Hoffer(t), including the Crums.

RE: Huffers in Emmanuel Church Cemetary, Mount Solon VA
Sean Paul: Thanks for your message! If your wife is a Huffer from Augusta County VA then we are almost certainly related ... probably like 5th or 6th cousins. I would love to hear about her Huffer family.
