Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got the genealogist "gene" from my dad and love the jigsaw puzzle-ness of finding the missing pieces. :-) I love to take photos of old stones in cemeteries, and feel the pain of finding broken and vandalized stones. My local family burials are Danforths and Kingsburys. I rely on others for pictures of family burials out of state, so I like to be able to give back by photographing headstones for others that are nearby.

Olive Latimer in Riverside
There is no named marker for her with the other family members there is a family headstone. Do you want me to use that one?

Arthur F Buchner
Arthur was my neighbor when I was a kid. We would take him shopping and bring over meals when we could spare it. I went to visit him one day and found him on the floor of his house. "He had fallen and could not get up." When he passed away the family gave my brother his hand made desk and I received the flag from his military service. I kept the flag in my closet for years and finally flew it after 9/11. I am looking into getting the creek which separated our properties named after him and could use any help locating family members. Thanks for adding his photo to this site.

Caroline Munc is my great-grandmother. I was very pleased to find the memorial that you created for her, including the photo of her grave marker. Her daughter, Anna Urban, is my grandmother. I created her husband Anton's memorial and am the one who has been submitting links to all of Caroline's and Anton's children. I would very much appreciate it if you would transfer Caroline's memorial to me.

Thank you so much for providing me with a photograph of the Belden monument. Silas Belden is my 3rd great grand uncle, the brother of my 3rd great-grandmother. I can't thank you enough for your kindness in providing this photograph.

Nancy Varble grave.
Sorry to take so long in responding to your message. I appreciate you taking the time to search for Nancy's grave at Higgins cemetery. I have added a notation to her memorial that her grave was not found. Thanks so much for your help!

Saint Johns Evangelical Church Cemetery, Sipesville, Somerset County, PA
We were at Saint Johns Evangelical Church Cemetery in Sipesville, Somerset County, PA yesterday, and there are only 8 headstones present in the entire cemetery, the church long torn down. The largest headstone is for Peter Gonder, and his headstone sits out alone from the rest. There are no headstones for Barbara (Queer) Gonder or Elizabeth Gonder, wife #1 and #2.

The photo of the cemetery listed on Find A Grave has all the tombstones in the photo. The darkest headstone in the center of the photo sitting out by itself is Peter Gonder's. In the photo image that views all the tombstones from their front, Peter Gonder's is the one in the front (and not in the row of four headstones) by itself. He is the only Gonder of the 8 headstones left behind.

The church is long torn down, if you walk ten feet beyond the staircase that is viewable in the photo and turn to the left, you would have been at the front doors of the small white church.

An interesting little tidbit to share is that Sipesville is also the location of Quecreek Mine Rescue of 'Nine Alive' fame from 2002. Saint Johns Evangelical Church Cemetery is only about 3.5 miles northwest from the rescue site on Schoolhouuse Road/SR4002 about 500 feet from where it T's up to Keysertown Road/SR4013.
