Bio and Links
I first started taking pictures of graves of only my relatives. I would return home do a little more research and discover that I missed a few. So out I would go to take a few more photos and the same thing would occur again. After my 3rd trip to the cemetery I decided I would just photograph the whole cemetery.

I try and do a little research on each of the stones that I photograph, using various resources. I use other people's trees for clues then try and prove those clues with documental evidence such as obituaries, census data or other records. It's a very enjoyable experience.

At first I also created a tree on Ancestry and was uploading the tombstone photograph's there as well but it became too labor intensive so now I only upload my relatives there. If you are would like to use my photographs for your family or upload them else where please do so. A link back to find a grave along with credit would be greatly appreciated. If you wish to use my photographs in a for profit venture please obtain written permission to do so.

My primary areas of interest for my own family lines are the names: Reifinger, Latshaw, Stufflet/Stofflet, Schlegel, Bower, Eck, Mertz, Day, Christman, Bock, Bennicoff, and Gruber in Berks, Pennsylvania, USA; Haney, Van Buskirk, Heller, Mills/Mill, Starner, Weiss, Hofner/Hoffner, Fetherman, Coslar, Sandt, Price, Houser, Werkheiser, and Brong in Monroe, Pennsylvania, USA.

I'm willing to transfer out of guidelines. If you are interested in doing more work on any of mine feel free to ask. Just take good care of each individual out of respect for their memory. If it is a relative of mine it may involve a little more discussion.

Mary Stitzer Miller
Hi. I believe Mary Etta Stitzer Miller is my great grandfather's sister. If she is not related to you, would you consider transferring her to me? Her parents are Samuel Stitzer and Hannah Louisa Smith Stitzer.

FAG Memorial # 79368134
I had taken a photo of the headstone for this individual but upon looking closer, I realize that it has inscribed "children of".
I was wondering if you have information that Ida and Mabel might be two different children, or is there another child on the back of the stone?

Frances death certificate Shows a correction was made to her death certificate indicating her birth
date is Mar 18 1856. Headstone shows 1851.

Would you please make a note of this on France's memorial.

The date on the headstone has me very confused.
Abraham was born Sep 16 1830 but all military
records show he died Aug 2, 1864 & Sabina applied
for his military funds Oct of 1864.
He died in Bridgeport, Jackson, Alabama.
Buried in Chattanooga, Hamilton, Tennessee.
Memorial #2986068.
The last child of Sabina & Abraham was born in 1862 Is the death date on the headstone Sabina's
Appreciate your comment.

To whom may concern,

I made duplicate back in 2012 for Sarah Kresge Silfiece #101410793. I see your 66096186 has everything except did not add Sarah spouse and their son is missing. Mary Jane have brother James Monroe. You can add John Melchior # 66116734 Sarah spouse and their son: James Monroe # 10141121 on your Find A Grave # 66096186.

Thank You, after I see you made addition then I will delete my 101410793. Smile!

Miller family
sorry to be a bother again.
i just realized that i duplicated Layton, Sadie, Earl, Isabella and their baby daughter. I deleted them but added my photos to your memorials. Theya are buried in section K Lot 46. Dorothy Hallman and her husband Carl are in Row FK lot 3.
I created a memorial for Ruth Miller Keeney's husband. If you would like a transfer I will do that. He is also in section K lot 46.
I have attached the map of the cemetery to him. From there you can download the map.
(Gnaden Huetten cemetery vs Lehighton cemetery)
thank you for your time.
