Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a lifelong resident of Sussex County, NJ with long and old roots in the area.

My mom told me about this site while she was doing research on some of our lesser known family lines and when I checked it out, I was hooked. I have greatly enjoyed taking my trips to the cemeteries and enjoy helping others fill in the blanks in their family trees.

The majority of the memorials I have created are the result of the headstones I have photographed. As a result, the information I have is often limited to whatever information was on the headstone. If you have any information to add, please let me know and I will be more than happy to add it to the memorial. Or, if you are a family member and wish to have the memorial transferred to you, I will be more than happy to do so.

The website link goes to my Flickr account, which contains albums with my cemetery photos. Feel free to browse and take what you need for research purposes. But, please give credit where credit is due. There may be photos on there that I haven't posted on this site. Any questions please feel free to ask.

Family names I'm looking for include: Demarest, DeMarest, Courtright, Cortright, Simmons, Card, Crill, Predmore, Swartswelder, Kinney, Struble, VanHorn, Mabee, Mabie, Vanderhoof, Beck, Kirkhuff, Babcock

and from my husband's family, Blackford, Tidaback, Heater, Raser, Lambert

Henry and Sarah Moore
Thank you for posting the picture of the tombstone! I was very happy to see it as Henry was the brother of my 3rd great grandfather Dr.Cyrus C. Moore.

Sure, I would like the transfer. Maybe I could find a relative or two out of this. The relatives back here in WI would want to know if they had children, since we didn't know that he was married. :)

I meant Clifford Westphal not Brandt. Brandt was his mother's maiden name.

Clifford Brandt
Mandy Lea,
Thanks so much for the picture of the grave stone. He was a first cousin to my father. His mother was my dad's aunt who died at 20. This Clifford was raised by his father and a step mother. He was the only child of his mother and was raised with MANY 1/2 siblings. Our family never knew him, but knew of him. It is nice to finally know where he was buried. We never knew that he was married either. It would be nice to know if he had children, that we may have cousins in New Jersey.
