Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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. Also, since only five free photo spots per person are allowed in findagrave, please do not add unnecessary photos to any memorials. 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 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.

Findagrave is as good as we make it.

RE: William Moody - Crownsville Vet cem.
He is still there, just checked. Try using his memorial number, #136622218. I have noticed things seem to disappear from time to time all over this site, no big deal I guess.

RE: William Moody
Thanks for offering the rephotographing of his marker when the permanent one is erected. I am sure his family will appreciate your kindness. I thought it would be there by now, but I learn something new every day.
Regards, Rosebud

Thank you so much for photographing US Congressman Cooper's grave site. There is so little information available on him and his family - I now have more information on "Uncle Cooper's" family (uncle to my Grandfather).

Hi Mike, Thanks for the updates, they have been made. There is nothing wrong, even by Find A Grave rules, with having two memorials for the same person as long as they are in different cemeteries and as long as one is marked as a "Cenotaph".

The one you have would be a "Cenotaph" in his honor and I think you should add the record. Once added you can contact Find A Grave and they will mark your record as a "Cenotaph".

If you do so .... let me know and I'll also make a link on his record at Baltimore to yours.

( He is also noted on the below webpage with a link to his grave )

Thanks My Friend,
Russ Pickett 46575736
