Bio and Links
Bio Photo Regarding sharing of my photos:

HELP YOURSELF!! Nothing pleases me more than helping people find their relatives, which may even turn out to be me. Unfettered access to such priceless photos and info benefits us all. And it can be hard or impossible to visit the cemeteries yourself sometimes, so I enjoy helping.

Note: On many of my memorials, there might be a lot more info provided than is apparent from the headstones. This is because I cannot resist the urge to research the people named on those headstones. I will use ancestry.com, newspapers.com, familysearch.org, et al, to fill in some blanks, to make the memorials more useful. This is especially true if the surnames are Smith or Jones. While I have no Smith or Jones in my direct ancestry, I have experienced the difficulty of researching those family names. I cannot pass a Smith or Jones headstone in a cemetery without photographing it!

My favorite location to shoot headstone pictures is western PA, which is where my ancestors all lived after their arrival from Europe. I visit the area often to visit cemeteries and photograph headstones, and will most certainly take pix of anyone whose last name is on the list below, no matter who they are.

I also am fond of photographing any headstones of military veterans and very young children.

If you see a memorial that has an error, needs linked to someone, or that you'd like to manage, please just ask!! The more we gravers communicate with each other, the more accurate the info will be for all.

CAUGHEY/McCAUGHEY/McCOY
DIEGELMAN
DOMAN
FUCHS
HARPER
HARTSUFF/HARTSOUGH/HARTSOUF

Duplicate records
Betsy, Not sure what is happening with the "duplicate records" you are finding. 5-6 of them are coming up as "No Memorial Found" when I attempt to open the record. The others are all corrected. Thanks again, Tom

Duplicate records
Hi Betsy, Thank you for catching the duplicates. I have deleted them. I make every effort to check for duplicates but those got through. Tom

RE: chloe mclean everett
She must have NO marker. I'm sorry too. She's not the first relative of mine that does not have a marker. My great-grandfather on my paternal side did not have one. I bought him one. And my grand-aunt on my paternal line does not have one either. Thank you for trying. I appreciate your efforts more than I can say.
