Bio and Links
Bio Photo Let me begin by saying that cemetery research and genealogy are much more than simply a hobby for me, they are my passion. I desire to capture the history of every day people, to make sure their lives are remembered.

In all my hunting, one of the stories that I've uncovered and touched my heart isn't a relation to me. In fact, she has no descendents of her own. Hers is the the story of a young girl known as Minnie Adams, "The Wild Girl of Brush Valley Township." If you get the chance, stop over at her memorial, read her story, and remember her.

Little Angels and Angel Mothers Project
A personal project of mine is to create virtual cemeteries for Pennsylvania infants and children and for mothers who died in childbirth. Please feel free to contact me with additions to these virtual cemeteries.

Read about Madeline Kunkle one Little Angel whose life story might break your heart.

Updates and Corrections
I am more than happy to work with others to make additions and corrections to the memorials I manage. That said, I very much appreciate when updates provide the source (that's not just a family tree someone found online). Unfortunately, I have been given incorrect information in the past and wish to avoid that.

When Memorials Don't "Look" Like You Prefer
Also know that for memorials of those who died 100+ years ago, the "traffic" is high as those individuals may have a 1000 or more descendants. Please understand that everyone has their preferences of what to post on a memorial and how it should look. The memorial may not appear exactly the way you want it (ex: the photo of the stone isn't at the top, there is death or marriage certificate included ), but there may be someone else out there who likes it that way. In my view, I may "manage" a memorial, but it isn't "mine." This is a public site, and the memorials are here for everyone. As long as what is posted on the memorial is respectful and relative to the person, I leave the memorial for the living to honor the dead.

When Resources Conflict
Always be aware that sometimes obits, death certs, and even carved headstones can have errors. In those instances of conflicting sources, I will make the best judgement I can and will note it in the bio.

Be Kind... Always
I do take pride in the memorials I manage, and I do my very best to promptly make updates that are sent my way. I take that responsibility seriously and always appreciate it when others manage their memorials with the same diligence and respect. One thing I've noticed across the board here at Find-A-Grave, kindness when making requests most often is rewarded.

I also would eagerly transfer management of a memorial page of a person whom I am not related (primarily anyone buried in New England are non-relations) to a descendant as well as Greenwood Cemetery. I do expect that if a transfer is requested that you are an active Find-a-Grave member and will continue to maintain the memorial and graciously network with other descendants to ensure accuracy.

However, please respect that I retain management of the memorials of my ancestors. If we are both descendants, I certainly respect the Find-A-Grave policy on transfers. If you are looking for a way to "gather" your family and loved ones together, please check out the "Virtual Cemeteries" feature on your profile. This is an excellent tool for you to connect your family together.

PLEASE send corrections/requests by clicking the "EDIT" tab at the top right corner of the memorial page. Then click "suggest a correction or provide additional information". For transfers, state your relationship and include your member number. I sometimes miss messages posted below, so you'll have much better luck emailing me through the "edit" function.

About Me
As for me, I am a work-from-home mom of several passions. Family, genealogy, freelance writing, and Bible study are just a few. Check out my bio here.

RE: McDermott
I don't know. Several of their children listed Higgins as their mother's name. I haven't really dug into it yet. Could you send me the info you found. Here is my email addy:

Here is something on your Patrick Dennis McDermott. I noticed on the census that one place he was Patrick another Dennis P and finally Dennis, all with the same wife and kids. I found a Pa Death Cert for Bridget under the name McDennon corrected to McDermott. I think this is yours as the person providing the info is Dennis.

RE: William T. Putt
Sorry, I sent the message to the wrong person! I noticed in the flower section who I should contact.

Thank you for responding.

William T. Putt

I believe William Theophilus Putt was my 3X great grandfather. His granddaughter, LuLu Putt, was my great grandmother. For a long time I suspected Lulu, who my family knew as Grace, was the child of Theophilus W. Putt. A few days ago I found an obituary for Lulu's brother, which confirmed my suspicions.

So I think we are somehow related through this connection. I would love to hear from you. If you are interested in Lulu's story, I would be happy to share it with you. I would really like to know more about the Putt family.

My email is

I look forward to hearing from you,
Audrey Foreman
