Bio Photo Retired military and living near Antietam battlefield.


If I have added a family member or a good friend, I am happy to transfer memorials. I am not bothered by F.A.G. guidelines in transfers. I am concerned about getting family members "back together." I DO transfer distant relatives since they SHOULD be with family.
I am also happy to transfer memorials of close friends as well as family.

REMEMBER, these sites are in memory of someones' ancestors. If you place a photo on a memorial, make it good enough that you would be happy with it on your own.

All men die...not all men really live.

I am looking for Charles & Flo Liddington. Flo died in 1972. Charlie was alive in 1974. They were my mothers' mother & step-father.
I believe they lived modestly within a half hour of Danville, PA. Also,
I am also searching for any info regarding the roster for the 33rd or 34th Battalions of the Maryland Militia. An ancestor I am searching for, Thomas Mock, who served with this unit in New Jersey in 1777 under George Washington. He had a wife named Sarah and parents were George & Catherine Mock. They were from "SUPPOSEDLY" living between Sharpsburg and Middletown, Washington & Fredrick County, MD.

Ruan Huffer Motter
Birdman, unless it's one you're interested in, I'd be happy to have memorial 84625311, Ruan Huffer Motter transferred to me. She's my Great Great Great Grandmother, and I have more than a passing interest in maintaining her memorial. Although Ruan passed away nearly 150 years ago, it's been passed down to the current generation what a kind and loving person she was. In fact, there are no less than eleven of her descendants that have carried on her name, including my own daughter Emmarie Ruan Green. In any case, I'm grateful for the time you've taken to fill findagrave with your work. Regards, Darren Green.

Francis Cassidy #901
Dear Birdman,

I am a National Park Ranger working at Lowell NHP in Massachusetts. We are making connections to other NPS sites for the Centennial year. I would like permission to use your photo of Francis Cassidy's gravestone for our post to FaceBook on Saturday. He was a painter whose family could not afford to bring him home for burial.

Please let us know and tell us how you would like to be credited.
