I have always loved a mystery and strive to "figure it out". Being adopted I did not know my history until 1993. Immediately I researched all lines and am proud to be a member of the DAR and the Colonial Dames of the 17th Century.
Helping others with their search into their past is very satisfying.
If you wish to use my photos you just need to acknowledge where you obtained the photos and from whom. Do not take credit for work you have not done or photos you have not taken.
I enjoy finding the obscure and documenting for all to see and find. I look for graves that have no flowers, have military service noted and children that don't have a history. I find 99.9% of these are not memorialized so I make sure they are remembered for all to find in their search for ancestors.
Sister Marguerite Therese Foran Hi Linda: I saw for the first time today--thank you very much for posting the photo of my great aunt's stone back in January! Someone had tried to get one some time ago, but could not get into the yard. Best regards, Chris
Evelyn and Walter Gentz pics Thanks so much for adding the pictures to his page. I was glad to be able to remember which cemetery he was in. They lived across the street from my family when I was in Junior High and High School. I don't remember her hardly at all--I wonder if maybe she was in a nursing home or something the last few years of her life.
Anyway, I did a lot of work around their house for him during the last year of his life. He was like the grandfather that I never got to spend much time with, and taught me a lot about electrical wiring, plumbing, and painting. He also hunted squirrel, and that's the only place I've ever eaten any.
I didn't mean to ramble on, but seeing the marker has brought back lots of memories. The SSDI must have had the wrong day--that or it was my typo. But I'm glad there was a correction to accept, so that I would know the picture was there, although I would have seen it before too long. Thanks again!
Carl Seibel and family photos--thank you! Hello Linda, thank you so much for the great photos of Carl Seibel's and his parents' markers. They are greatly appreciated. This is part of a volunteer project to locate and photograph the markers of all of Maryland's WWII casualties. Thanks again, Dan Phelan
