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: Wilmer Daniel Johns

Yes I would love to have the picture.

My address is

289 Blanket Hill Road
Kittanning, PA 16201

Thank you so much I really appreciate it.

I wonder if there were other family pictures in there without names.

It's nice that you do this for relatives of the people in the pictures.

Thanks so much,

RE: Wilmer Daniel Johns

i should have sent a message sooner but i have not been on for a while. Where did you find the pictures? Im curious because there may be pictures of other relatives if there are more in the group.

Dates wrong?
The dates on the headstone appear to be Jan 23, 1792 and Mar 1st 1842 or 1843.
There is no way,in my opinion, it is Aug.
Can you check them, please, and let me know.
Thanks, I appreciate your time and help.

Miner family decendent
I have done geneology for the Miner family as far back as 6 generations and need more information. If anyone has more to add to my research I would appreciate it.Thanks to the gentle men who posted the cemetery plot of my great grandfather Allen J. Miner. I also had those same pics and many more than that...if anybody is interested in more information or pics I have quite a few pics of my relatives. I think the research I've done goes back to the earliest census but it anyone has something more please feel free to email me at ewingm95@gmail...Thanks again

Next time you're out at the cemetery, would you check if Bobby Kirk is interred there? We discovered he iisn't at Cheltenham. Thank you
