Bio and Links
Bio Photo After my father's passing, I have taken over for him of researching our family tree. This includes our main branches; My parents: the Bonneys and the Pumphreys. My Grandparents: the Bonneys, the Pumphreys, the Weeks, and the Lowes. My great grandparents: the Bonneys, the Pumphreys, the Weeks, the Lowes, the Eddys; the Taylors, and the Baffords.
On my wife Jackie's side I am working on the Silvesters (Di Silvestre), Quattrociocchi, Tenaglia, Histons, Tarants (Tarantinos), Fidler, Cornwell, Mothershead.
I currently have over 72,200 names, 21,535 marriages, 41 generations, and 8160 surnames in my family tree. Please feel free to contact me to exchange information on our respective families.
In addition to my family tree, I have begun transcribing markers at Rockville Union Cemetery, Rockville, Montgomery Co., Maryland and Mount Carmel Methodist Cemetery, Bel Air, Hartford Co., Maryland.
May the Lord Bless You Through his son Christ Jesus.

New edit function

You have to be logged in to findagrave on on your homepage here (where you are reading this message) and you should see and [Edits] tab at the top right next to [Contributor Tools] and [Edit My Profile]. You probably have pending edits shown in parentheses on the Edit tab.

You can Accept, Decline or Ignore the suggested edits sent to you. It took me a while to figure it out... but if aren't sure whether to accept or decline an edit, you should click on Ignore to SKIP it for the time being because once you click on process edits at the bottom, it will either accept or decline... whichever is selected in the box at the right. The default is "Accept"... so make sure you select the one you want. Not the end of the world if you make the wrong choice because you can always re-edit manually... it is still your memorial. It will process the edits and remove them from the list... except for the Ignores, which remain for you to decide later.

Finding Family
Hello! I'm looking on Ancestry and am building up my Mom's side of the tree. My Mother looks to be on the Pumphrey side. Stacie Hodge is the daughter to Louise Pumphrey Brownfield is the daughter to Elizabeth and Arthur. I'm having trouble finding a solid lead on the parents of Elizabeth Alice Scott. Would you be able to provide any information that would help me?

Thanks much!

Harold Chandler Bonney

Hi Gary,

I guess the [Edit] tab doesn't work so I will have to respond to your public message with a public message.

Harold Chandler Bonney in Wayside Cemetery in West Paris needs to be deleted.

The ones you created in 2009 are the ones that show up on This one needs to be deleted before it gets picked up by

The reason there are no photos for the memorials in Pleasant Pond Cemetery is because he and his wife are actually buried in Wayside Cemetery... about 5 miles west of Pleasant Pond.

You can [Edit] the cemetery information to "move" their memorials to Wayside Cemetery and then you can request gravestone photos in a few weeks when the snow melts. ;)

Joseph Fricks
Could I please have (or borrow) your memorial listing for my Great-Uncle Joseph Fricks (Find A Grave Memorial# 40461414)? I would like to put in the genealogical links to his parents and siblings.
Thank you.

Bradford S. Bonney
Hi Gary:
I am not related to the Bonney family. I saw
your message on Bradford Sherwood Bonney's
memorial wanting more information.
I have added a photo of Bradford to his
memorial (#63426596), and a photo to one
of his wives; A. C. Bonney.
I obtained these photos from:
Page 1161
Portrait and Biographical
Record of the Willamette Valley
Chapman Publishing Company
Chicago, 1903
There is a biographical sketch on Bradford
in this book.

Harrison Weeks 61722567
Hi Gary,

Since you asked in the flowers on that page: Harrison Weeks was a graduate of the U. S. Military Academy at West Point, Class of 1868. A summary career biography of him is given in entry #2265 in Cullum's Biographical Register of the Graduates of the Military Academy; it is online on my site at

There is also an obituary, as noted in that entry of Cullum's, in the 1909 Report of the Association of the Graduates of the United States Military Academy; it's about 2 pages long and not very informative. It's nominally online at the Military Academy's website: nominally because it may be hard to find. If you can't find it, and would like to see it, drop me a line, I'll be glad to oblige.
