Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm an amateur genealogist learning more and more every day. My ancestry has been traced back to a Revolutionary War patriot, Reuben Stearns. I believe he may not be the only direct ancestor who served in the Revolutionary War since family on my father's side also arrived with the earliest ancestors in the 1600s. It's exciting to search, but not easy to prove. I'm hard at work doing just that.

I remember how thrilled I was when I found the head stone picture for Reuben Stearns on this site. That's when I decided that I wanted to help others by taking pictures of head stones and posting them in the cemetery listings posted here.

There are many very old cemeteries around me and I'll be uploading pictures as I find them and suggesting corrections to others when I see errors in listings. I will also add obituaries that other members are kind enough to send me for anyone whose memorial I manage.

I would be happy to turn over management of any listing to a family member, so feel free to contact me about it.

Dear Mary,

Re: Anna Anderson Hull

Anna is my second cousin. Would you give permission to use the photo please. Also, are you related to her?

The actual family name is Andryzewski, but Anderson was used as well. Thank you.

Hi Mary
Thanks for your effort. Sharing your cemetery walks is appreciated. VERY APPRECIATED. You included Beatrice R Hilbert Beeler in the Manahath Cemetery. I was lead to believe her husband (Edward) was also buried there, but you don't list him. He died April 30, 2013.

Do you have an information about that?

I updated john's obit. I've seen John on the job somewhere. I worked in most of the telephone offices. Over 40 years with Western Electric Co. I would gladly transfer John and any other memorial I have that is related to your family.
