Bio and Links
Bio Photo I enjoy helping people, photography and genealogy so visiting nearby cemeteries to provide photos is a natural fit and my pleasure.... besides it gives me some needed exercise!

If you see a memorial I created that you want to manage please email me and I will gladly transfer it to you. Please include your Contributor ID# that appears beside your name in your profile.

If you want to use any of the photos that I have taken and posted feel free to do so...just drop me a line, I may also have a different view of the photo.

I have copies of the old Philos Cemetery burial books and maps and also I have access to St James' Episcopal Church records here in Westernport.

Information for many of the Fazenbaker memorials is from the book " The Fazenbaker Family of Western Maryland" by Walter L. Warnick 1991.

I reside in Westernport, Allegany Co, Maryland

I have permission of the Piedmont Herald Newspaper to use their printed obituaries. The Herald is closed and no longer in business.

Hi John!

I was reading your profile after I found you had fulfilled one of my photo requests (thanks again!).

You had mentioned your wiliness to transfer memorials. Poland is my family name and I have done research on the line. I would love to have you transfer your memorials to my care so I can add information. However, I noticed you had a lot of Polands, so I was concerned you may also be related.

If you are not partial to keeping them, I would gladly send a request on each memorial with my contributor number....I just don't want to bombard you will requests if you are also related and want to keep them.

Thanks again :)

Hello John,

I found an obituary for Mary at, that I thought you might want to add to her memorial. Would you like me to add it myself or e-mail it to you for you to add?
