Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired as an elementary school principal in 2000. As a person that sleeps only 4 hours a night that leaves 20 hours to fill. Sitting home is not an option. Now, I drive a school bus 5 hours a day and visit cemeteries every chance I get. I have never been to a cemetery that charged admission and seldom is there a crowd. My wife, Sandra, is of a like mind so it works well. We both enjoy the hunt and the thrill that comes with each discovery. Let us know if we can help. If you have additional information on one of my post or you are a relative and want ownership, I will gladly transfer it to you. Just ask. Oh! By the way just call me Doc!
NOTE: Many times the family plot has names different from those on the headstone. I always attempt to provide a reference point for markers. Hope this is not confusing.

Two quotes worth remembering:

"Tread softly, dreams are buried here." Unknown

"If you wonder about your 'roots' you have two parents, four grandparents eight great-grandparents and 16 great-great-grandparents, and by the time you go back 10 generations 300 years or so- you had 1,024 people from whom you are directly descended. --Mady Castro

RE: Daniel Shives
Hi Richard, I am stumped. Unless someone asked me to remove a duplicate listing and add my photo to your listing, I cannot figure out how I could have added a photo to Daniel's memorial. I do entire cemeteries, so I wouldn't have just gone in to take a photo on a request. But he wouldn't have shown in any cemetery listing because his burial is marked as 'unknown'. So....since I did do the Salisbury cemetery and some of his kids are there, I would think he was at Chestnut Hill. Sorry I can't be more help.

Hello Sir,
I don't normally ask, but will you transfer my 1st cousin Stanley James Blind and his Mother Lelia May Wise Blind, my aunt? I appreciate the consideration. Sincerely, Peter
