Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native of Northern Virginia, having lived in Fairfax County and Loudoun County my whole life. I became interested in researching my family history after my mom passed in 1995 and my dad in 2004, both from cancer.

If I have created a memorial for someone close to you, please let me know and I'd be happy to transfer them to you as long as they are no relation to me. Please don't hesitate to ask.

If I have added a photo to a memorial and you would like additional photos, better quality or close up, just let me know and I will try to help. Feel free to use any photos of headstones that I have taken for your own use in family trees, etc.; no need to give me credit.

I will add as much information to a memorial as I can find; not just what is inscribed on the headstone.
I will use genealogical sources to research family links, middle name, maiden name, nickname & full dates and places of birth and death. This information can prove to be invaluable to someone who is searching for a loved one.

Surnames I'm researching on my dad's side: CLOBUS and NOLL from Germany and Pennsylvania, CROUP/CROOP of Allegheny Co. and Butler Co., PA and in FL and on my mom's side: ENTZIAN and MAIER/MAYR of MD and WI and MAYERLEN/MAIERLEN. Other surnames I'm researching: MARBURGER, GLOCK, SISTEK, GRUNTZ....all of Allegheny Co. or Butler Co., PA. Also interested in KLOBUS.

RE: Ann M Turley's Parents?
I have a note in my tree that says, "parents Alexander? Charles and Anna?"

I haven't worked this line in many years. think it needs to be worked up in Loudoun.

Sorry I cant be of more help, but I believe there strong enough clues for your fella to run on.
Thanks for helping,

Cemetery Transfer
Hi Diane,

Would you be amenable to transferring some of my Trammell relatives to me or letting me send you bios/links for consideration? The ones I'd like to update:

- Samuel Trammell (100867602)
- Zella Coffer Trammell (100867627)
- Jane R. Trammell (100897231)
- Reuben B. Trammell (100899083)
- Joseph F. Trammell (103689369)

I have updates to the other Trammell's you have, but I don't have direct descent. I can send those to you or add a photo.

Thank you!

RE: James Cotton Allen - 95463075 - WHS Alum
Dear Diane Clobus Dean,

Thank you for your offer of Transfer. As James is an alum from my HS, I would be honored if you would Transfer his memorial to my care.

On a different topic, as your Surname is Dean, might you be from the Dean family of Fairfax County, VA, centered around the Braddock & Backlick Road area? I ask as one of my close friends/neighbors is related to them and we have searched for the Dean family cemetery in that area w/o success. Any clues to its location, if you know would be of great help.

Thank you for all your F-A-G efforts and kind Transfer.

Always, in F-A-G brother/sisterhood,

RE: Allens in Woodlawn Cemetery Bronx
Hi Diane
It's so nice to hear from you again. I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas & New Year.
I think I have more pictures for graves in the Allen plot. I will take a look today and add them. I had taken them before I
joined Find a Grave and just never got around to adding them.
I also have a plot plan for all the people buried in the Allen
plot. If you give me your e-mail, I'll send it to you.
In regard to the management of the Allen's, yes you can turn
them over to me. I do think that you have done a wonderful job
in managing the sites. You have done a better job with them
then I would have done.
Stay in touch
