Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please let me know if you would like me to transfer any of my memorials to your family that are not in my family. My grandson Owen and I really enjoy this time together. He especially likes the veteran areas and is really into Gettysburg and Lincoln. We found a relative that had brunch with Lincoln on the day of his address and then she sat on the platform steps to hear his speech.

We have taken many extra photos when looking for family so that someone else can use them. Please do not hesitate to ask for a transfer.

There are many headstones that are completely erased by time or very hard to read. I will list those as Unknown in the hope that maybe someone will recognize them. I will leave flowers so that they know they were not forgotten.

And for all the Findagrave members, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I was fortunate enough to have an encounter with my Dad who passed in 1995. While visiting our cemetery, I always stop and check the flowers I had put on the grave. Last time I was there, I was sitting in my car (hot outside) and a brief fragrance came past me. I recognized it immediately. It was the same way my Dad smelled after showering and shaving in the morning getting ready for the office. I have not smelled that pleasant fragrance since 1995.

The latest surprise I had was at Hampton Union cemetery in Hampton, PA. When I got home and loaded my photos on the computer, I had a picture I did not take. It was a complete figure of a person that was translucent. But the odd part was that I was alone that day. It could have been me because my arms are not long enough to take a full body picture and there was no background--no other stones, trees, grass or houses--just white.

Have been notified that Pvt. Samuel Loucks #98815557 is a duplicate to #40353526 which was the first one posted. Have been told that FindAGrave's rules say I need to delete the duplicate. Therefore, would appreciate it if you transfer your photo to #40353526.

Frances and Sarah Ellis transfer
Thanks for the transfers! Ellis is the middle name of both my father and my older brother but we never figured out where it came from. Maybe this is a clue. Hope all is well and thanks again!

John Taylor photograph #4697811
Thank you for the excellent photograph of John Taylor in Newberry Friends Burying Ground. It is a very old stone. Your photo shows the inscription very clearly.
