Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been adding older memorials in my area over the winter months and plan to go out, find and photograph them when it warms up. Any information you have to add to any of my memorials would be appreciated. I search the old newspapers for old obits. and also look up the death certificates, as sometimes the obit. does not give specific birthdates, parents, etc...this information is not always correct, but if it is there, I will list it and make a note where that info. came from. If you want me to add information or change anything, please list your source.

I have no problem with transfers if they are not related to me.

Any of my headstone photos may be used anywhere you'd like, I only ask that you give me credit for the photo.

Thanks.

RE: William Henry Lippy, Cedar Grove Cemetery
Thank you! I also noticed that you added the headstone photo for William Henry Lippy's first wife Catherine, so thank you yet one more time!

RE: William Henry Lippy, Cedar Grove Cemetery
I didn't realize that Mary's first husband was buried in Cedar Grove, let alone that she was buried with him! I don't know much about him, but I went ahead and created a memorial for him (Find A Grave Memorial# 175704470); could you add your photo that you put on Mary's memorial (133946293) to his as well? Thanks so much!!

Oh my goodness! I'd given up hope of ever seeing this; thanks so much! I'm hoping that his second wife, Mary Catherine (nee Burkepile)'s headstone can be found too (I have a request for it also).
Thanks so much.

Abigail Gillan Hamliton
Thanks Karen,

I see I made a mistake when I created Abigail's memorial. I put her last name as Taber, I've corrected it to Hamilton.

Thanks again,
Richard

Help with the Wagamans
I just want to thank you for all of your recent help with the Wagamans at Cedar Grove Cemetery. Your gravestone photos are perfectly framed and highly legible -- I really like your photography! Thanks again!

RE: Photo of Elizabeth Wagaman's gravestone
As further follow-up, today I discovered a memorial for Annie Wagaman (d. 11 Mar 1865) (infant daughter of Jacob & Maria) at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=74204981. This grave is located in the Old Order York Brethren Cemetery.

I've now added memorials for Jacob Wagaman and Maria (Sollenberger) Wagaman at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=174762268 and http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=174762362, respectively. I've also submitted a number of edits to provide family links.

RE: Photo of Elizabeth Wagaman's gravestone
This looks like a fit for Simpson Wagaman -- he was born 6 Jun 1876 and died 15 May 1882. (I made an error RE his age in my previous message -- he was only 5 rather than 15 when he died.
