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.

Hello Michael,
Are you related to William T. Stone, memorial #86285715 ?
I am desperate for a photo of his second wife, Belle Bowie.
Thank you,

Thanks for the picture. I think Frank Drager was my great great uncle. Do you know anything more about his family. Who were his parents?

Thank you for taking the time to find a photo of my great grand uncle. This is very exciting and I will be showing it to my mom as soon as I visit her in Vicksburg. -Langston E Gibson III

RE: John Shover

Thanks for doing the update. I would never have known Harold was related to John except for your note on the memorial. Worked out great!

Thanks for the transfer. What a wonderful surprise to wake up for. I wasn't expecting it. Thank you, she was a wonderful woman and didn't deserve what happened to her.
