Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am interested mostly in Pennsylvania genealogy with concentration in LOWMASTER (incl. LAUMEISTER, LAUMASTER, LOWMASTER, LAWMASTER, LOUMASTER) where I've spent more than 25 years trying to see if everyone named LOWMASTER and LAWMASTER are related. I concluded they are. I also concentrate on the SHERRY (Scherie) and STATES surnames with interest in BARTLEBAUGH, KURTZ, MCDOWELL, POSTLETHWAITE (any spelling) SPYKER, and WENGER names. By the late 19th century most of my ancestors were living in a 30-mile diameter that encompassed Armstrong, Clarion, Indiana, and Jefferson counties. My earlier ancestors were in Lancaster, Lebanon, Northumberland, and York counties, Pa.

I try to follow Find a Grave rules and don't post those post-1923 obits to the memorial. Thank you for sending those as suggestions. However, I will be glad to list the source (Newspaper, Date, Page) for more information and will try to capture as much as I can in the biography while staying within F/G guidelines and not posting the actual obituary.

Outside of Fairview Cemetery in Canoe Twp., Indiana Co., where I have more ancestors buried than any other location, the pages I have created are almost always for my family members. Occasionally my research finds people who have no pages for which I create one. If you see a memorial page of someone who is closer to you than to me, just ask, nicely, and I will probably be glad to transfer it to you. I can't take them with me.

Woodbridge, Va.

Hi Barry,

Oops, in my records I had he died "after 2013" but mistakenly put up "2003". I have corrected deathdate to unknown as I don't know when he died. Will keep checking. Thanks for noticing this.

If you need anything, I've added a lot to the Bartlebaughs memorials in Indiana County, PA particularly the Rowley and Thompson Cemeteries in Hillsdale. All are in my family tree, by blood or marriage.

Barry, when I confirm memorials have bios and photos, I will post flowers or if I find someone that doesn't belong, I'll let you know! Thanks for all your help! Jan

Hello there. I thought I'd let you know that I added images to Earl's memorial.
Cheers my fellow Findagraver! :)

I will take another walk around Union here, it is just about 2 miles from me.
