Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for about ten years now. I am a member of the DAR and Mayflower Society, and I am constantly working to find and document anything interesting about family members. It is a very consuming hobby, but the rewards are great.
If anyone finds mistakes, needs to add info or needs me to make any changes at all just let me know. PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB on the memorial page, it does make it easier for me to do quickly.
I do appreciate any extra info that I can add to my memorials. If I have taken a picture and it is not clear please let me know and I will be glad to go retake it, or if you would like a higher quality sent to you by email, I will try to do that.

SSW- means side by side with, usually on same stone.

The Proper Way to Clean a Headstone
from the International Association of Cemetery Preservationists

It is recommended that clean clear natural spring water only be used for cleaning historical cemetery structures. Do NOT use harsh chemicals, high pressure hoses or equipment, or abrasive tools of any kind.

Use soft-bristled brushes with natural or plastic bristles. Never use a wire brush or any metal object for cleaning. Automobile detailing brushes are very handy for cleaning historic headstones and monuments.

At one time it was recommended to use shaving cream as a cleaning agent on headstones and monuments. This came about when cemetery photography became more popular and inscriptions couldn't be read well. Do NOT use shaving cream to clean headstones or monuments. It has now been found to damage the stone because of the often high levels of alcohol and menthol in the shaving cream.

Easter Thank You
In the event that I have not thanked you, personally, for the transfers that you have provided me with, I wish to do so at this time.

Didn't think that retirement and providing day care for my-now-5 month old Grandson would be so taxing, yet fun. It has allowed me some time to work on my genealogy project, and Find a Grave project, that you have been a tremendous help.

Happy Easter, be safe, have fun and Thank You.

Lloyd Paul Brannon, II

RE: Ann Madge Dick
/Users/owner/Desktop/James Dick - Overview -
I did a Overview from my Ancestry Tree as PDF of what I have on James, but it has alot of guesses.
Who did he marry before Ann? in Penn.? Date?
I have Ann's Last name as Roberts 1780-1868 and guess marriage after Robert Madge died 1822 as 1823 Lackawannock Townsp. Mercer, PA. James died before 1850 census and after he was in 1840 census.
