I recently began my work as the pastor of the McClellandtown and Grace Chapel Presbyterian Churches. I have always been interested in family histories through cemeteries and general American History for many years. I have taken thousands of photos of historical markers and have a blog called "Little Bits of History along U.S. Roadways" which can be found at littlebitsofhistory.blogspot.com You can also check out the church's Facebook page and web site.

Photos Lee, Thank you so much for taking the photos of Samuel D. and Mary Harn's tombstone for me. He is the older brother of John H.T. Harn, my direct line. Both are sons of Thomas S. Harn, a shoemaker in Fayette Co., PA for many years.
I appreciate you taking the time to take the photos and post them for me! LouAnn
RE: H. Walsh In response to your message: RE: H. Walsh You can use the photo for your project on veterans in WWII. I have taken a great deal of photos of the veterans graves. I am the pastor of the church and I am currently working on a church history and want to include the stories of some of the many individuals buried in the church cemetery.
Would like to let you know that the unit Harold Walsh served with during WWII, The First Special Service Force, was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in 2013 and the presentation of the Medal will take place 3 Feb 2015 and will be shown on CSPAN. Feel free to contact me via email on my profile for additional info on Harold or his unit.
RE: H. Walsh If you would like to send me your phone I would like to contact you, this WWII soldier belonged to a unit that has just been awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, would welcome the opportunity to tell you more about him and his unit. Cheers!
H. Walsh Thank you so much for taking the time to locate and photograph the memorial for me, it is greatly appreciated. I would like to ask your permission to use the nice photo you took (with proper credit) for a WWII project I am working on, I hope you do not mind, please let me know. Thanks again for your time and efforts in fulfilling my request, it is because of volunteers such as yourself that this is such a great site and resource, Cheers!!
Deffenbaugh Thank you so much for posting the pictures of the gravestones of Jacob and Eva Deffenbaugh. I especially appreciate you also posting a distant picture showing the location of the graves within the cemetery. Somehow that makes the burial place more real to me. Someday I hope to be able to visit. Thank you for your volunteer efforts. Karen
