Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live just outside of Gettysburg,Pa. I enjoy doing family research. Most of the memorials I maintain are relatives, some close, some very distant, most are related to me in some way, some not at all. I will gladly transfer memorials of those not related to me or family if you are more closely related and have more info. to add.

I would like to thank all of you that are so kind to leave token's for my family and those that take the time to fulfill my photo requests. It is much appreciated!

Any of my headstone photos may be used anywhere you'd like. I only ask that you give me proper credit for the photo. I use ancestry and have added many photos from this site to my tree- with permission first and I give credit to the photographer. I feel it's the right thing to do as these volunteers spend a lot of time going out, finding the graves, photographing and posting them and I appreciate every one of them. Giving them proper credit is the least you can do.

RE: Jenny Stymiest Verdier
Karen, go ahead and post whatever pictures you want. I assume you took a better picture of the stone than I have. I can't get down on my knees anymore so I seldom do to many pictures at this point unless they are flat.

Let me know if I can correct anything else.

RE: Robert Rowe
Hi Karen, Yes Robert Rowe was my cousin. His grandparents, Bob and Eleanor Rowe were my aunt and uncle. Aunt Eleanor was a sister to my Dad, Daniel Bricker. I don't have any further information on him, other than what is in his obituary. Didn't have much contact with him once he moved away from home.
Thanks for asking! Hugs, Bonnie

Thank you Karen for noticing this. I will have to look at this closer to determine which one to keep and which to delete unless you have some input. I think I might have found the one on some info that I posted the memorial and the other I found the stone first and then posted. I noticed some date variations. I am at work now and need to get home.

RE: I agree!
Hi Karen,
I'm so glad someone else feels the same! I posted that because I'd just lost my husband & he was added before I had a chance to see the photo my children chose of him for the local paper. I wasn't in a good frame of mind to do edits on F.A.G. the day after he passed but didn't want to fall too far behind. I didn't even realize the funeral home had posted his obit on their site yet but there it was already on there & on F.A.G. Two good friends had it removed for me & saw to it that I was able to add it myself & I was so grateful! Thanks so much for your message-it made my day! Dee

RE: Rev. George W. Leisher
Regarding a funeral record for Rev. Leisher, I don't need it, but I thank you for offering.

However, if there is anything on there that should be added to the bio, please let me know.

Thanks again,

This may help. If not, I'll try to scan it for you. Jesse Hager is also in the book. Judith
