|Bio and Links|
As my Findagrave Profile name suggests, I am one of the many people to be diagnosed with Autism (Aspergers, to be specific). As one diagnosed with this syndrome, one of my characteristics is that I focus my attention around specific subjects. Most people with Autism or Aspergers may focus thier attention on dogs or subway routes. During my early high school years, I was fixated with graves after I stumbled across Findagrave. I would usually travel to cemeteries within my neck of the woods (Pennsylvania's Main Line), or whenever I was on vacation. Eventually, I felt that my fixation with cemeteries became morbid, so I slowly shifted my attention onto another subject: the US Presidents. To this day, I can still recite (1) the names of the Presidents of the United States in chronological order from George Washington to Barrack Obama, (2) the years they served in office, and (3) thier Vice Presidents. I also have an odd interest in visting State Capitol Buildings. Every once in a while, however, I would enjoy roaming around a cemetery (mainly if a President was buried in the cemetery). In October 2008, I decided to create my own Findagrave account, so here I am =)|
DISCLAIMER: As of January 1, 2013, I'm taking a year off (& possibly a little longer) to spend some time away from FAG so I can focus more on my own personal life. I'll be back sometime in (or after) 2014, but right now I just need to focus on my own personal life -- meaning, until then, I do not wish to get any personal e-mails asking to fulfill FAG requests.

A photo is already up at 133535688 but thank you for the offer. Unless you have a better photo than the one shown, I'll leave it alone. The photo was put up by Crypt Tonight. If that's you, thank you! The date of death was 1871 not 1873 she was buried 30 Aug 1871. I *don't* have a photo of her husband's memorial tho. Irad Manning There were multiple Irad Manning's...but this one was born sometime between 1830 and 1835. From records I'm finding he may have been born in 1832 or 1833. If you have a photo of his memorial I'd love to have it...his memorial is at 133534976 Plot: Section 18 Lot 126 as far as I know. I'm sure it would be near Margaret A's memorial if its there. If its not, I'd like to know that too!

Please do. My Grand Father passed away when my father was very young - Ruby was my Grandmother's second husband.
|Michael Newman||Thank You|
I just want to say thank you so much for posting the picture of the grave of my gr5andmother. She passed away when I was in first grade, but I spent nearly every weekend with her when I was young so I still remember her. This is very nice of you to do.
|Ben G||Re: Benjamin Gross|
Thank you for finding his marker. Thought not a relative, I want to make sure that all those with whom I share a name are properly memorialized.

Thank you for your time and efforts. You are amazing at helping others. The headstone is hard to read with shade and all. The time of day that a photo is taken can have an effect on the outcome.
|TurningHearts||RE: Samuel John's grave at West Laurel Hill Cemetery|
Yes, do download the photo of Sam's wife.
|maxezimm||RE: Norman Slott at Mt. Sharon Cemetery|

Dear Autistic Wonderboy,
I'm very happy for you that you find many different ways to stay interested in things and in helping others; I enjoyed readying your bio.
Thank you very much for taking the photos of the Mowrer family in the Old Saint David Church Cemetery. My cousin Phyllis is still alive (born 1930) and there is no memorial for her. So thank you for taking photos of memorials close to the same spot...you are really going above and beyond the call of duty!
Your volunteer work is so important and again, thank you.
