Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I have helped you with a photo or such..then you are welcome! All I ask is that you return a random act of kindness to someone in need.

I enjoy helping people, photography and genealogy so visiting nearby cemeteries to provide photos is a natural fit and my pleasure.... besides it gives me some needed exercise!

If you see a memorial I created that you want to manage please email me and I will gladly transfer it to you. Please include your Contributor ID# that appears beside your name in your profile.

If you want to use any of the photos that I have taken and posted feel free to do so...just drop me a line, I may also have a different view of the photo.

I have copies of the old Philos Cemetery burial books and maps and also I have access to St James' Episcopal Church records here in Westernport.

Information for many of the Fazenbaker memorials is from the book " The Fazenbaker Family of Western Maryland" by Walter L. Warnick 1991.

I reside in Westernport, Allegany Co, Maryland

I have permission of the Piedmont Herald Newspaper to use their printed obituaries. The Herald is closed and no longer in business.

Date Change
The Death date is listed as 13 Feb 1900 but the newspaper article dated 28 Sep 1900 just below it lists his death as 24 Sep 1900. This would make more sense since the 1900 Census which includes him is dated 1 Jun 1900. Obviously he couldn't be alive on 1 Jun 1900 if he had died on 13 Feb 1900.

Thanks for your efforts here. Jacob was my GGGrandfather. His daughter, Mary Emma, married my GGrandfather, Evan James Sigler, Jr. Their son, John William married Bessie Broadwater whose son, Thornton Vernon, was my Dad.
