Some of the most exciting breakthroughs I've made while working on my family tree have come from volunteer sites like this. I have made some wonderful connections, and I also enjoy helping out the community where I can.
My primary surnames of interest include (and this is by no means an exhaustive list): Cornwell, Richardson, Wheeler, Schmitt, Albert, Wagner, Ruhl, Garren, Miller, Sweet, Learn, and Nelson - most of these are primarily from Pennsylvania.
Please note that I relinquish any of my own copyright for volunteer headstone photos that I take and post on this site. If you would like to use my volunteer headstone photos for your own family research, please feel free - that's why they're there.
Some of the memorials I create on Find A Grave are non-relative volunteer additions - if you would like me to transfer the management of any of these memorials to you, please simply message me on Findagrave with the "Find A Grave Memorial#" and I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you.
cozzens Hi Stacey I just wanted to let u know that there are not any head stones for Zeruviah or Emory Cozzens they are buried in plot #189 on Waban ave a few feet away is a Silas B Wayne birth 1830 death 1874., but I went to the office of Lake grove for them to look it up and they said there is not a stone.Sorry for the no picture but she told me that a lot of people have tried to find it and she has told them the same thing (they all told her it was for find a grave ) but you might want to remove it from your photo request.

Henry Garren Hi Stacey, I walked this small cemetery today. It is lovely yet forlorn. The Revolutionary War is represented by about 16 souls, some fathers next to sons. In addition, prominent members of the town of Collingswood are recognized as having their names on schools, streets and there are even plenty of the Collings family. I could not find Henry Victor Lux Garren. but I found some of his paperwork that I posted as well as a shot of the cemetery. He was born 6Jun1838, married Mary Ann Folwell 31Mar1859. Enlisted in the Navy at Camden, NJ Sept 1864 age 26. Fair complexioned, light hair, blue eyes 5'6'. Died 26Nov1913. Civil War on Union side.
Sharon Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Moon Twp, PA Hi. I am president of Moon Genealogy Club. We are doing a project at this Cemetery and taking photos of more headstones, including trying to find the headstones for all 24 current photo requests on Find A Grave. I see that you've taken a few photos there. We are a small group. Might you be interested in working with us and taking some more photos there? Please let me know.
William H Garren You are correct on how he fits. From the SS death index I found that he was born 23 May 1915 and died November 1967 (day not given). From the 1940 Census I found that he was born in DC and his wife was Ann also born in DC. She was listed as being two years younger (they were list as 24 and 22). She is not buried in the family plot in Rock Creek. (Since William died fairly young, she may have remarried.)
RE: Garren You are welcome. Rock Creek does not routinely list DOD but he was interred on 12/1/1953. The family plot was already established with two prior burials so the interment date should be close to the DOD. Maybe 11/29/1953 which may help you find an obit or death record. By the way, there is a William Hawley Garren interred in the same plot on 11/22/1967 and he is not listed in Find A Grave. If you already know about him, you might want to enter him otherwise I can tell you what I found on him. By the way, I grew up in Western PA (Greensburg/Latrobe area) and I do genealogy research in Warren County area also.
Donald O. Christe Hi Stacy. Your father's kin were the Hauck's too. My grandfather was George E. Hauck. Would love to hear from you and perhaps I can fill in any information on the cousins from California, and maybe you would fill any information for me. Although I don't know what I need or would like. Grandfather Hauck is buried in Monterey, Monterey, California. We are in Northern California having moved here about six years ago. My mother Francis Isabelle Hauck Richards is still alive bur bed fast and her memories are kind of dim. Take care, Dorothy Knight
Garren I visited the Garren plot at Rock Creek Cemetery to fulfill your photo request for Ralph Garren. There is a Garren family marker and individual markers for Marion F. Garren and Mary P. Garren but no marker for Ralph. According to cemetery records Horatio A. Garren and William Hawley Garren are also buried there but with no individual markers (unless they are covered over with sod). Only Ralph is in FindaGrave. Do you want to add memorials for the other four? (I'm guessing you have more info on them than I do.) I can then add the pics I have to them. Otherwise, I can create the memorial if you prefer.
