|Bio and Links|
My name is MaryEllen Leigh-Stover. I'm a retired nurse, an Ordained Minister and a Doctor of Theology. Cemeteries have always been a hobby of mine, but I find it frustrating that many cemetery records are incomplete. I found this site and decided to do my part by adding those dearly departed that I am personally aware of. This may turn out to be quite a task!|
My friend RMP suddenly passed away on March 31, 2010. She and I had made it our project to add a flower to every one's memorial in our home county of Bucks in PA; I will still be carrying on that project alone. There are so many graves without any flowers at all and that is sad to see. If in your journey through Find A Grave's memorials in Bucks County PA, should you come across a memorial I have missed please post a message for me or send me a link. I really do not want to overlook anyone and would appreciate the extra eyes.
I am also doing all the cemeteries in Wales, and many in N. Ireland, since my heritage is mostly from these areas. If you know of or have any Welsh or Irish relatives that you would like entered, I'd be glad to do that for you.
Another current project is a huge one. Along with the projects I have mentioned above, I am steadily working through all American, Allied and Commonwealth (British Empire) graves in France and North Africa (so far, this will expand to include Germany in the future) for both WWI and WWII. I have always been a student of history and I firmly believe if we don't know where we came from and how we got here, including the cost of lives lost, we will never be able to find our way forward.
If there are any entries that I have made from our local newspaper's obituaries that may be of your loved ones, relatives or friends, I will be more than happy to turn them over to you upon request. Please, feel free to alert me to any additions or corrections that you may find.

Dear Rev. Dr. Mary:
Your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated. The kind words that you left for my Great Grandmother Margaret Steltz, Bucks County Pa touched my heart.
Such good works and random acts of kindness ...matter.

|ian mould||bedfordshire Regiment|
Ive been putting pictures of the headstones of Bedfordshire Regiment soldiers as part of my project and I keep seeing the regimental cap badge and a poem that you've put on . Its nice to see that other people have taken the time to remember these men . is it just the bedfords that you have done it for ?

Hi Mary, I saw that you were at Tullytown Cemetery and lived near that area. I am trying to place family members in there but hesitate. There obits say either just Tullytown or Tullytown Baptist Church with burial in adjoining cemetery. Do you happen to know if this is the same cemetery. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Terry

Dear (Rev. Dr. Mary) Leigh-Stover
Today after years of searching, I found my baby sister's Memorial site. Her name is Janet Sharon Leigh. She only lived 11 days and I was only 4 years old when she passed away. I noticed back on March 11, 2008 you left the following message under Leave flowers and notes.
From one Leigh to another in love, respect and peace. Suffer Little Children to Come Unto Me and Forbid Them Not; For of Such is the Kingdom of God.

I don't know if you personally knew our family or not. However, I wanted you to know my sisters and I are grateful for your kindness in remembering our baby sister.
Mary, Patty, Kathy and Judy
