Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was raised in Elizabethville, PA but now living in Oak Harbor, WA Am retired and doing genealogy for the E'ville Richter family and Isaac W. Mattis family.

I am also doing memorials for my wife's family, Ackley, Priboth, Herbert & Jones. Please see the Ackley Virtual Cemetery for names.

I have completed entering memorials for Maple Grove Cemetery in Elizabethville. If I erred on any memorial please let me know so I can make the correction.

Am also making a virtual cemetery for all veterans in Maple Grove. Please let me know if I miss someone who is in the Find A Grave list.

If you wish to copy a photo I have posted remember they are copyrighted. Credit me with the photo. I have started letting any site with my photos credited to others know they are not theirs.

Thanks to the wonderful ladies that helped post photos from Rome and Florence National Cemeteries.

Have taken 7900+ photos at Sicily-Rome American Cemetery. Am processing requests first but please be patient, it takes time. They need editing because they are white marble without any highlights for the names. I'll upload as I finish a batch of edits.
As always if you desire the raw photo email me.

To all the wonderful people who have commented on the Sicily-Rome photos please be assured I'll get back to you as soon as all the requests are posted. Some of you have been waiting for many a-day.

Reviewing ALL the messages sent am afraid I'll have to settle for a general message to you. The many stories told do my heart good. I understand how much these pictures mean to families. It is my honor and privilege to add my small efforts to support bringing closure to families and adding to the growing base of recording to military history.

Some photos will have very dark backgrounds. Because of the white on white of the crosses and bright sunny day it is the do requests but only way I can show names.

28 Mar 2017. Still posting to Sicily-Rome Cemetery. Again I am sorry that all the photos are not real sharp and clear. I figure better a less than perfect picture than none at all. If anyone requests a photo and a better one is posted I'll be glad to delete mine. Have not started on the positing for the Army Army Air Forces Tablets of the Missing.

6 Jun 2017 (D-Day + 73 Years)
Recently started posting the Army/Army Air Forces Tablets of the Missing, working backwards from Zs. Also have found a better way to edit those washed out crosses. Will continue on them. You may see defects in the marble, the editing highlights the differences in the grain inf the stone. Again if someone posts a better photo pleases let me know and I'll gladly remove mine.

Thank you for the photo at the Sicily Rome cemetery of the gravestone for Charles Ernest James, Jr. I happened to look at his memorial page today today and saw the photo that was added April this year! Thank you!

RE: Floyd Rowe photo
I'd have to look again. I actually took that photograph several years ago. I completely forgot that I had it.

I think Floyd Rowe is located near John Schreiber and family. John's daughter, Orpha, married Floyd's father, George Rowe.

I added a photo of the tombstone for Floyd Rowe.

Could you please remove the "No marker found at this location" image?
