Bio and Links
Bio Photo FindaGrave has some incredible research I never would have uncovered, but take heed, I've also found creeping in here with less than stellar research and records.

I began researching my genealogy using the research of my grandparents. I found some errors and corrected these and marched on with my research. Been at this for probably over 20 years depending on how you want to calculate it. I find genealogy is just a puzzle, and the only way to solve it is with evidence.

I am a retired U.S. Army, Ranger and Special Forces Team Sergeant (Green Beret).

I walked this cemetery and the photos were NOT taken by you. Please correct this statement as it is NOT correct.

Is there something that I should correct? I walked this cemetery and photographed the entire cemetery. She has the same family stone as the other members of this Younkin family? If the links should be removed, please let me know. Have a blessed day.

Dear Glen,

Thank you for written to me. I have not found anything either that show that Catherine maid name is Cramer either. I have not spent to much time on this family, I just got back into research this year. Your question about should you us Cramer or Unknown, I guess it up to you. I have never give to much thought and at the time when I found it, I was just starting out, but now I probably would have made it Unknown with a note that her last name might be Cramer.

Glen, I fulfilled your photo request for Samuel and Mary Strickler from the Providence meeting House. There are three other associated grave including: Emily, Halleck and Unknown. If you would like these photos simply generate a photo request for each, send me a note, and I will fulfill them. Enjoy, Tom

RE: Owensdale Cemetery
Thanks, Theres not much there now. The cemetery photo on the page is older.Right now the stones are mostly illegible and scattered {p0ssibly vandalized) and the wooded growth makes it nearly impossible to find much. Nature has nearly complete takeover of the cemetery. I had to crawl to find some of them. I have more photos from there but all are unreadable.

RE: Baker Street Cemetery
Both memorials are there??? Yes, yours does not have a Bio, but only you or the admins could have changed that.
I deleted my dup, we had the first name spelled differently and apparently that is why I missed it when entering the info from the DAR records.

Also deleted a couple of other memorials of mine that were close but the data did not match exactly. I think the cemetery is clean and there are no dups.

I did at no point change or have changed any other memorial data than my own for this cemetery!

RE: Thank you :)
It was a labor of love on my part because some of the old stones would have been lost and forgotten lying on the ground covered with leaves and brush. There could be more there according to other records but it would be difficult to locate them because of the condition of the entire area. How do you have interest in the cemetery? Just curious. I'm glad my research was helpful to you. Regards, Judy

RE: George Friedline
You are very welcome. It's ironic - I found that cemetery by accident while on the way to another site. Actually I didn't even see it - my passenger in the car spotted it, and we stopped on the way back. :)
