Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been involved with family research for about 20 years. Some of my lines are: Barr, DeMerchant, Gee, Currie, Armstrong, Pelkey, Hanson, Lovely, Boyd, Marnich, Lamphier, Parendo. My paternal side come mostly through New Brunswick, Canada and concentrated from the Perth-Andover area along the St. John River to Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. Those names are as above: Barr through Boyd.
My maternal side settled in the Duluth, Minnesota area through Serbian (Marnich), and German (Lamphier), and Italian (Parendo).
I have visited many cemeteries and taken a few photographs. If there is a photo of a grave that someone would like and within a reasonable distance, drop me a request.

Thanks for the many photos at Grindstone Road Cemetery, I was even able to date date some dates and found a name typo. Again, many thanks.

Ellen Benjamin's Photo
Thank you Ben for the photo. It is through folks like you that make this site so much more rewarding. I'm wondering if you have a different photo in your file because her death date is cut off in the photo? If not, don't worry about it.

Hi Ben,
I want to thank you so very much for the great pictures you took of my great-grandparents gravestones. I don't have any pictures of them when they were alive, but know have these to add to our family genealogy records. With your permission I would like to add them on my family tree, giving you credit for finding and taking these pictures.
Also, I'd like to welcome you to Find A Grave, I have been a volunteer for over a year and find it very rewarding when I can connect a family with their loved ones. Today you made that connection for me, it means the world to me - thank you!
