Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy and graving, are two of my many hobbies. I'm also a history buff.

I started recording cemeteries over 8 years ago
-- that's history and genealogy all rolled up into one. Walking cemeteries is also another way to get some exercise. Since I'm former military, I try and get photos of military gravestones.

I also try and help people find their ancestors in portions of Beaver and Washington counties, Pennsylvania; East Liverpool, Ohio and Chester, West Virginia.

I'm one of those genealogy search angels. If you are at that proverbial brickwall with your genealogy research in Beaver County, Pa., Hancock County, WV and/or Columbiana County, Ohio, I'll be glad to try and help in your search.

I also put abbreviated obits on FindAGrave that I see in the newspaper. If you see any errors or want to add something to any of my submissions, please let me know. If you want to make corrections to a memorial, please use the edit button on the memorial. I'll be able to get to the memorial and edit it a lot quicker going thru findagrave's system.
I'm also more than glad to transfer memorials to family members. Please include your member number.
If you are going to email me, please include the memorial's link as well as your member number.
Please list FindAGrave and/or the name of the cemetery in the subject line so your email doesn't end up as Spam and possibly get deleted.

If you want to suggest changes to a memorial, please use the edit tab on the memorial.

Hi Elton,
Are you related to Bill? Bill was a "foxhole comrade" of my Uncle Robert Coon. Bill also was awarded the Dist Service Cross for his actions in Holland with Pvt Frank P. Garofano. Best,Glenn

RE: Roy Tarlow
You are most welcome.

I walked by it a few times before I finally located it, and had to clear off some leaves. I was glad to to be able to locate it.

I'm not sure how they usually set these grave markers. Your cousin's metal marker is set into what I think is a cement base. It could be that something happened to the original stone marker, and this was just placed there on a temporary basis.

Jacob Packer
I found a Jacob Packer (Find A Grave Memorial# 70197486) at Montefiore. It is a double stone, Jacob (d. March 14, 1959 age 75 years) & Sarah (d. May 30, 1981 age 92 years). Could this be the one you are looking for?

Leona Merriman Shroads
Hi. I am researching the Shroads family of Moon Township and sent some edits to you for Leona Merriman Shroads buried in North Branch Cemetery. My GGG Grandparents were William and Margaret Baker Shroads. Leona was the wife of one of their grandchildren James M. through their son George Washington Shroads. The dates and places were obtained from her PA Death Certificate. The year of birth is one year off from her grave stone. I also sent a transcription of her obit from the Beaver Falls Tribune. Thanks.

Thank you for your photo of Peter Teel. I have had a difficult time with their family. Still kicking information around. But was wonderful to find finally, a photo of a stone, with some piece of confirmation. Thank you. You really ARE an angel!

Thank you so much for taking this picture. This is my great aunt (Fanny Charlotte Levite) husband. I am doing genealogy research and trying to find out if any of their descendants survive. While Fannys brothers and sister lived in Steubenville, Ohio and Pittsburgh, PA, Fanny and Morris lived in Washington, PA. If you are able to photograph any others in the same cemetery I would appreciate it.

Thank you so much for taking the photo of Susan's headstone. She went to my high school and I'm trying to find all of our students who have passed away. Thanks again.
