Bio and Links
Bio Photo Originally from central Pennsylvania, I have lived in Clearwater, Florida since my retirement from the U.S. Government in 1994. I took up genealogy shortly thereafter and quickly became a FAG photo volunteer when I had the good fortune of discovering this valuable website.

I will certainly entertain any and all requested memorial transfers and look forward to working with family, relatives, and friends in that regard.

NOTE: if anybody desires a memorial be removed, please contact me and it will be deleted, no questions asked and no need to explain.

Elizabeth Zinore Thorne
Hello there. Thank you for your edits. I accepted them all except the edit to remove Albert L. Thorne as her husband. I declined this edit only on this merit. I did add her parents manually. Thought I'd send you a friendly message letting you know. Cheers! :)

Reason: I've seen a document that says Albert L. Thorne is Elizabeth's husband. I've posted his WWII draft card to his memorial in case you were interested.

Mike I greatly appreciate the photo of Uncle Garner's marker. I would like to place a few more pics on his page. Would you please delete 2 of them, so that I can add more. Thank you.

Speros Dones photo request
You are receiving this message because you have submitted a photo request for the above named person(s). I wanted to let you know that I will be traveling to that area from Dallas during the first week of June and I would be able to get the requested photo(s) for you. I do need some help from you tho. While I am in the Chicago area, I intend to get as many names off the list for Evergreen Cemetery as possible. The list is growing every day and is now at 263 requests! Evergreen Cemetery is near and dear to my heart as I have several of my own family members there. If you would please call the cemetery office and obtain the burial plot locations and send them to me, I will for sure get them for you when I go there in June. If everyone could get me the locations I could really get a lot of requests done but I can't do it alone! The office number for Evergreen Cemetery is 708-422-9051. You can leave me a public message with the information, or you may email me at Please be sure to reference the requested names. Thank you!

Hi Mike, I added a Harry Hooper as Anna first husband. Hope he's the correct one, as I don't see any proof.

Thomas Boring updates
I just found Thomas Boring's death certificate. His birth date is given as April 16, 1833. I have adjusted the memorial. However, it doesn't give any middle initial or middle name. So it's still a mystery to me, unless you can solve it. Thanks again for bringing this to my attention. So great to see his death certificate which I added to his memorial. I also found Isabella's. Would you like me to add it to her memorial?
