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: Albert Pometto photo
Michael, thank you so much for doing this. I understand about the gravestone. We have a Quaker church and graveyard across the street where I grew up. I have family in there and a lot of people that I knew.. And the stones some of them are he same way.. You are a very nice person and I appreciate your help..I hope to come there and meet my biological family someday soon. I enjoyed reading your page. Thanks again

Hi Michael, do you live close to the cemetery to take another picture? It was very hard to read.. Didn't know if you could get one that was clearer. For Albert Richard Pometto.
Thank you

Bill Huff
Thank you so much for the pic of Bill Huff. He was a girlfriends dad I knew since i was small. He was a Christian and a wonderful, loving fun man to be around. He was always happy and loved God so much. His memorial service brought hundreds. I thought he was cremated so maybe they buried his ashes. So glad he is with his Lord now.

Thank you again

Capt John Reilly Milligan
I wanted to thank you for creating such a great memorial for Capt. J. Reilly Milligan from Crisfield, MD. The notice of his death in the Baltimore Sun was especially interesting, and I appreciated the 1880 census record. Very helpful! I am working on his sister Sallie Milligan who is buried in the Asbury Cemetery, Crisfield MD. Sallie married Edward Sterling, a brother of my 2gr-grandfather. Good to know that J. Reilly Milligan and his family migrated to Baltimore.

Thank you, thank you for making this site such a wonderful source of family history!
