Bio and Links
Bio Photo trying to stay ahead of developers who want to cover historical markers... and the weather, time and vandals that obscure the inscriptions... to honor those that walked before us.

Although I visit cemeteries whenever I travel (to the dismay of others in the car), most of my work is in Vermont, New Hampshire, New York's lower Hudson Valley and Washington State's Skagit County.

Whenever possible, I post a photo--a photo makes it real. I also try to list the sources I've used to stitch together family relations or any info that I might find. I will not link to those who are listed as burial location unknown.

Thank you in advance for sending in corrections or additions using the Edit button. I appreciate your updates very much. Although I try to thank and acknowledge all corrections, I may not always have the time. Edits posted in the message area below will be ignored and deleted.

I transfer direct relatives within three generations (that means: your siblings, parents, grandparents, children, and grandchildren). As Richard H so aptly puts it:
"... someone who died 200 years ago could be related to thousands of people." Please use the virtual cemetery feature to group your family memorials.

My activity is seasonal--I use the New England winters to create new memorials with the images I've collected the rest of the year. There are several thousand waiting to be processed...

I love doing genealogy Especially on the Woodhouse house family. It took a lot of Hard work and most of All with people like yourself help connecting the dots.

It's so much fun this way.

Thank You

RE: John Bell
Thanks for your note. Sorry to ask you twice about the headstone - you have a better memory than I do! I'm actually fairly close to Howells now, but I suspect that there is too much snow to make a good inspection of the cemetery. Maybe this Spring.

Thanks again, Steve.

Hi LadyGoshen,
You may recognize me from Find A Grave. I'm trying to trace a tombstone cutter who worked about 1825 - 1838. I've just published an article with photos of his work here:

I am dithering whether these are slate or bluestone markers, both types of stone found in the region. They share a polished face/rough back, shallow relief decorative elements, and crisp lettering after all these years.

If you happen to see any tombstones with the same style of carving please do let me know. I'd also appreciate your opinion on whether they are bluestone or slate.

Thanks, Jane

hey lady Goshen happy holidays -- I stand in correction -- im working on mount Moriah cemetery -- that is the largest cemetery in the state of Pennsylvania -- it covers over 200 acres of land -- the cemetery became a mass of jungle when the city refused to keep an update maintance on it back in the late 90's now it has been turned over to who has taken an interest in this historic land mark -- there about 200 volunteers that work year on this cemetery trying to clean it up from the brush and over and under growth through out the years -- I was asked as a volunteer if I would come and try to photograph this thing as much as possible --- their web site is --
I hope you enlighten me on lost cemeteries -
sincere happy holidays

Carolyn Ringe Miele
Hi LadyGoshen,

I noticed you are the owner of Carolyn Ringe Miele's memorial. Here is her birthday. FYI, this is from her son, my second cousin.

My mom was born, Carolyn Sandburg Ringe, at Sibley Memorial Hospital on May 4, 1924. She was the third of three children of Fred and Ethel Ringe. Fred, a sailor,and Ethel, a government clerk at the printing office downtown, met, fell in love, and settled in Berwyn, MD to start a family. Back then, babies were usually bornn at home, but Ethel had been stricken with rheumatic feverr as a child and had a weak heart, so my mother and her siblings were all born at Sibley.
