Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a historian, genealogist and cemetery buff living in Raleigh, North Carolina.

My personal genealogical interests are mostly in the Philadelphia area; surnames include Helms, Colflesh, Schick, Henry, Pile, Harned, Stroup and Mowday.

I am also researching my family in northwest Pennsylvania; surnames here include Monago, Monaco, Leone, Monti and Saplesa.

My academic research focuses on a number of prominant reconstruction-era families in the Alamance County area including Long, Wood and Albright. I'm also deeply involved in research about the Rollin White family in Massachusetts.

I do a lot of "row mowing" with my camera and I'm happy to transfer ownership of a memorial to friends and family of the deceased.

RE: John Locksley Hall
Thanks Michael! I had not looked at his memorial. That is a nice photo of his marker. I would bet that John had the same thing but his was lost.

RE: John Locksley Hall
Did you take a closeup photo of Claude's marker? If not, could I ask you to do that? I don't have any details on him, or his parents, if they are there also. I don't even have enough info right now to even create the memorials. Just any time that would work for you. It rained here all day today, so am guessing you also received the same. I live on the NC/VA border between Rt 85 and Rt 95.
I truly appreciate your help with this family.

Well since John died in 2014, they evidently did not give him a tombstone. However, I want to thank you for your efforts in trying to find one for me. I truly appreciate your efforts on my behalf. Maybe they will put one out for him later.

Michael you posted a photo of a footstone for Eudora B Williams, the memorial is not managed by you but I was wondering if I could have permission to use your photo in a family tree. Eudora's footstone is in the Ceder Cemetery, Milton, Caswell County, North Carolina. thanks so much Linda
