Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since 2001. I have added both family and non family members. Any additions or corrections are greatly appreciated. I have also added people that had both positive and negative contributions to society as well as some that were just caught up in events that they couldn't control. I feel we can learn from their mistakes as well as their accomplishments. Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.- George Santayana

I like to do corrections so send me what you have, preferably using the edit tab located on the upper right hand corner of each memorial. I want the memorials to be as complete as possible. Due to time constraints I don't always reply but I will do them within the 30 day period.

Note: As of 2/23/14 I should be all caught up with corrections. Please resubmit any that I may have missed updating the memorial.

RE: Conrad Miller sponsorships
Oh my goodness, you are welcome. So glad to meet you, how nice. We have now known for very long- it's a very long story. Conrad and Pierson ( who we also never heard of ) are buried next to our plot at Union, never thought he was ' ours'. Longest story ever. My 3xgrandfather, wish there were more photos of he entire family! If you do not mind, which of his children is your grgrandparent?

Our part in the story is fairly sad- a year old, orphaned baby, a Civil War cavalry vet and a mother with TB. It's taken me a good 20 years to find the Millers, some were under my nose all along. :)

RE: Lawrence
Thank you for sponsoring my list of veterans in Trinity Cemetery. I made the list to make it easier to put flags out on Memorial Day. Also, how did you like the pictures on the 4 accident victims?

RE: Lawrence
No problem. Was glad to do it... solved an old 'tale'. I hope the pictures I took of the lake for their memorial pages were alright... seemed a little inappropriate for some reason, but 'their' lake is so beautiful and peaceful it kinda balances out the tragedy of what happened to them. If you ever come across their birthdates I hope you can add them! Have a great day!

Hello! I just mailed out the articles for you on the accident. I wanted to go take pictures today, but it's too rainy... maybe tomorrow or next weekend.

Big Ern...I love that name! I just want to thank you for sponsoring my aunt's memorial. I've got a ton of photos to go through but can't bring myself to do it just yet.

Thanks again...

Hi Big Ern. Ran to Eglington Cemetery today on my lunch break for a map of Gates of Heaven. Section Washington 29 are donated lots. They don't have markers. I asked what needed to be done to get them name markers and was told that because the plots were donated, the plots would have to be bought first by a blood relative before a marker could be installed. So, what I'm going to do is take pictures of lot Washington 29 and add them to James, Emily, Betty and Pearls memorials. In the meantime, I went to the Gloucester County Historical Society Library the other night and found the newspaper article from May of '56 and a write up in a GCHS book. If you're interested, I can send them to you. Have a great day!

RE: Elmer Clothier
It was my pleasure to sponsor Mr. Clothier. It's the least I can do for his daughter Candy who went to the same High School as me. I read a report when his older daughter was talking about him and said her father was 48 when he died. I thought it would be 1919 but I didn't realize he died 2 days before his 49th birthday. It was such a tragedy. He died from a broken heart & the stress. Coping with Candy's death then had death threats against his older daughter from the killers. He died 4 months after Candy.
