Bio Photo ATTENTION: I have completed my move to Florida (Youngstown, Florida, to be exact) and it will still be a couple months until I get back into the full swing of things on findagrave. Because of this situation, any updates, corrections, transfers, etc. may not be completed in a timely manner. Please bear with me as my wife and I move in and become more familiar with our new surroundings.

As a result of this relocation, I will no longer be available for Pennsylvania photographs or research and it will take quite some time to become as familiar with Bay County, Florida and surrounding areas.

========================

Born and raised in Apollo, Pa., which was the epitome of "Small Town USA," in the 1950's. Graduated from College, taught High School Biology for 6 years and then I grew up and joined the Navy. My goal was to Serve our country and see the world at the same time and then, after one 4 year hitch, I would resume a Teaching career. Things sometimes do not work out as planned...In 1997, after spending 22 years in the Service, I retired, back to my home, in Armstrong County, PA. Retirement has enabled me to work and concentrate on the main love of my life, which is my Family and Friends and, also enabled me the time to pursue my addiction to our family history and genealogy. There has also been ample time, left over, to engage in the secondary love of my life, which is fishing. Now, there had always been an interest in family history and genealogy and these fishing pursuits of boating, canoeing and tramping the streams, in search of the wily Trout and Bass has led me to many cemeteries, which are located in out of the way places. It is to the point...and, sometimes to the chagrin and frustration of my wife, where I cannot pass by a cemetery without "exploring a little bit." Thankfully I have married a wonderful and understanding wife, who, in spite of her seeming, sometimes frustration, just winks and grins whenever I tell her about the discovery of a "New" Cemetery...and then admonishes me to be sure not to miss anyone's stone. (As if I would, Eh?)
Many of the cemeteries, in this historic area of the country, are very old...some are grown over and a lot of markers are in advanced disrepair and are illegible. I have come to believe that we are losing our heritage and history, by allowing this to happen. After discovering Find-a-Grave, it has become easy to combine my hobbies with family history and the recording of the old cemeteries in my home area.
It is my goal to record as many of the small church or family cemeteries, as possible, in Armstrong County and adjoining counties, before I am too old to get out of the rocking chair. It is a guess there are still a few years, to go, before that occurs: I hope!

Dave
George family
Mr. Stoughton,

I found the obituaries I needed to link Daniel George to Samuel George on

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=george&GSiman=1&GScid=2268474&GRid=67740745&

You would be willing to release Samuel and his wife Isabella George:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=george&GSiman=1&GScid=2268474&GRid=67740742&

to me so I can put in their obits and link them to their the rest of our family.

Thanks in advance

Dave

I sent you a link for my ggg-grandfather. Best of luck fishing and searching out graves in Florida. I'm a bit envious. In mean time, I'll take your place trout fishing and searching graves of relatives primarily in Clearfield, Indiana and Jefferson Counties.

Tarr/St Mark's cemetery
Thanks for posting that information about the Tarr cemetery. That is good information to have. It has confused me previously.

Lower Piney Cemetery
Thank you again for all the hours you have spent documenting in PA. Good thing you did in the case of the Lower Piney/Mt Zion cemetery near Spaces Corners in Armstrong. I recently was in the area and decided to take a look. Thanks to you excellent directions, I was able to find the cemetery. Unfortunately, due to growth of trees, the cemetery sign is now not easily visible from the road and apparently due to flooding or some other weather issues, most of the stones you photographed appear to be lost. The good news is there does not seem to be ditch past the first row of stones anymore, however, the ground is still uneven.

the Georges of Indiana County
Sir,

Hope this finds you well. I am curious if you recall the photographs you took of Daniel George (1780-1843) at the West Union United Presby Church and Susan George (1793- 1865) of the same church. I have assumed they are buried together and are the parents of my great-great grandfather (Samuel George 1811-1896). He was married to Isabelle McMillan George. Any insight you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Again hope this finds you well.

Best Regards,

Dave Campbell

Roy and Margaret
HI Burke,
I did contact with you few times. I was look up Oakland Cemetery, Deckers Point, Ind co, Pa for any new addtion. No none. But I notice that on my print out from Find A Grave. Two were missing, Margaret and Roy Silvis. Did you removed Margaret and Roy? I have 6 photo here with me when I was there and I just upload those photo in your Find A Grave. I understand you were created back then. If you don't mind I can maintance for you or you can transfer to me then I can take care of the rest.

Thank you for your understanding.
Best Regard,
Mike Silvis - California.
