|Bio and Links|
I have been interested in genealogy since 2004. I am retired and live in Gambrills, Maryland. My main genealogy interests are in Western Maryland and S. Central Pennsylvania. My wife is also involved in her genealogy in Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. We visit cemeteries to find our ancestors' stones and markers. I enjoy photographing the monuments.|
Main families of interest are Minnich (Minich), Keefauver, Lemen, Harsh and Stone, Craig, Lydic, and Buterbaugh. Others are Johnston, Swonger, Lloyd, and Miner.
If I have made a duplicate, please contact me and it will be deleted quickly. Use edit button to add corrections. Also, since only five free photo spots per memorial are allowed in findagrave, please do not add unnecessary photos to any memorials. Save room for future personal photos from family. Unnecessary photos include close-up photos of the plot number on markers and the cemetery plot signs. The plot number should be entered in the Bio plot section of the memorial not as a picture. Obituaries should be typed in the Bio sect and not added as photos. Transfers may be made if you ask using the EDIT button and also state relationship. You have my permission to use my grave stone / marker photos for your private use. For any use of my family or my rescue-orphan photos please contact me. Hopefully, you will source or link the photos. It never hurts to give someone credit for helping you.
I have been purchasing "orphan-rescue" antique photos with names sufficient to search and find a 'home' for them. Some success has been had. There are photo albums of Hellyers (Seneca F., etc. - PA) and Hopkins (Arthur, Lewis, etc.) that are awaiting family. Please visit my Rescue-Orphans Virtual Cemetery.
I try to be a friend to all and will help where possible.
Findagrave is as good as we make it.

|Allison Sachs Smith ||Sachs family in Cedar Hill|
Thank you for all of your photographs of the Sachs family at Cedar Hill. I am researching that side of my family and your information has been very helpful!
|Sylvia Fancy||Nibecker Photo|

|Thom Painter||Scarlett Photo|
Thanks so much for fulfilling this photo request.
|Al Haxton||RE: Rhoda Haxton Foote|
Just to let you know after I gave them the location they found her. But her husband was not buried there. They said that grave 2 was empty. Oh by the way Rhoda was my 1st cousin 1x removed.
|Al Haxton||RE: Rhoda Haxton Foote|
thanks will give them another call.
|Al Haxton||Rhoda Haxton Foote|
You built her Find A Grave #120794917 listing her buried in Cedar Hill Cemetery, Brooklyn Park Anne Arundel County, MD Plot Section M. I just got off the phone with Cedar Hill and they do not list any Rhoda Haxton Foote listed in their records. Can you help me on this.
|KE S Price||Sarah ForsythE @ Cedar Hill|
On what grounds do you claim this could be the wife of Rev W H Forsyth? His wife, who spelled her name with no 'E', died in 1899 and that is well documented. Please remove his name from the memorial. Thank you.
Mike, Thank you for finding and adding the photo of William Herbert to his memorial. Photos really make the memorial complete. We have been pretty lucky lately with matching up the pictures we have found at the antique stores with the memorials in Find A Grave. We have also been able to locate some family members and have sent them the original pictures. Thanks again. Louise

|GraveSeeker||Thank you for the Crawford photo|
Thank you for the photo of Elvin Crawford's gravestone.
Happy New Year,
|Charles Zar||Ben Glass|
Thanks for getting out on such a frosty afternoon!
If it's okay, I am going to copy the photo and put it on my family tree in ancestry. I'll attribute you and Find a Grave.
Let me know.
