Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was raised in Elizabethville, PA but now living in Oak Harbor, WA Am retired and doing genealogy for the E'ville Richter family and Isaac W. Mattis family.

I am also doing memorials for my wife's family, Ackley, Priboth, Herbert & Jones. Please see the Ackley Virtual Cemetery for names.

I have completed entering memorials for Maple Grove Cemetery in Elizabethville. If I errored on any memorial p;ease let me know so I can make the correction.

Am also making a virtual cemetery for all veterans in Maple Grove. Please let me know if I miss someone who is in the Find A Grave list.

If you wish to copy a photo I have posted remember they are copyrighted. Credit me with the photo. I have started letting any site with my photos credited to others know they are not theirs.

Sicily_Rome Cemetery
I have taken about 330 pictures there 25 June. Am posting them as fast as I can. Please know that
I crop most of the pictures to present a balanced picture. Should anyone wish to have the raw photo email me and will get it to your early Aug when I've returned home.

Anyone wanting to edit their loved ones' tablet inscription closer please send me an email and I'll send you I most likely have close to 1000 names from tablets and just do not have the time to crop each individual name. My pictures are not the best of the tablets owing to their size, distance and quality of the camera.

Florence American Cemetery Memorial
Our daughter and one of her daughters helped with the photographs I've added. Theirs are the ones that were not on the request list so they are special to them. On the request photos I took 2 different poses for most. Anyone wanting copies please email me. Also if you wish to crop the memorial tablet photo I'll be happy to send it also. We took photos of all the tablets and I'll be working on them in the coming months, 1400+ names. My email address is on this page.

Anyone out willing to help post pictures for veterans whose only memorial is their name inscribed on Memorial Tablets. I have more that I can handle. Will Send you the original picture I tok so you can add the info to their memorials. Some take a bit of effort to read but if you are good at editing it should be no problem. These are from the Sicily-Rome Cemetery Memorial. I guess I have about 2000. Send me an email if you are willing.

Pvt Noah W Booth (#56306710)
Good morning Jack. In reviewing my messages, I don't see where I thanked you for the wonderful grave photo that you added to Private Booth's memorial on June 30. I apologize for the delay in this acknowledgement. He served in the same World War II combat outfit as did my beloved late father (the 325th GIR). Your kindness and thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

Good evening again Jack. Once more, I don't see where I thanked you for the grave photo you added to Pvt Ausdenmore's memorial on June 28. I again apologize profusely for the delay in this acknowledgement. I am actually not Pvt Ausdenmore's memorial manager, but your time and efforts are greatly appreciated, just the same. Thank you so much, and I hope you have a great upcoming week!

Grave Frederick Charles Harner
I was trying to locate the grave of my grandfather Frederick Charles Harner. I know that he is interred at Maple Grove but I was unable to locate him. Can you help or suggest someone who may be able to help me?

Thank You!
Thank you for taking a photo of my father's cousin's grave (Richard J. Bennett) in the Sicily-Rome American Cemetery in Nettuno,Italy. We had no idea where he died or served until I saw that picture. You made a world of difference to us, as we never got to know any of our relations. You made us feel connected to our ancestor, and brought us together more as a family.
