Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I have helped you with a photo or such..then you are welcome! All I ask is that you return a random act of kindness to someone in need.

I enjoy helping people, photography and genealogy so visiting nearby cemeteries to provide photos is a natural fit and my pleasure.... besides it gives me some needed exercise!

If you see a memorial I created that you want to manage please email me and I will gladly transfer it to you. Please include your Contributor ID# that appears beside your name in your profile.

If you want to use any of the photos that I have taken and posted feel free to do so...just drop me a line, I may also have a different view of the photo.

I have copies of the old Philos Cemetery burial books and maps and also I have access to St James' Episcopal Church records here in Westernport.

Information for many of the Fazenbaker memorials is from the book " The Fazenbaker Family of Western Maryland" by Walter L. Warnick 1991.

I reside in Westernport, Allegany Co, Maryland

I have permission of the Piedmont Herald Newspaper to use their printed obituaries. The Herald is closed and no longer in business.

RE: Irvin L. Fazenbaker
I added the headstone photo for Fay M. and Charles H. Fazenbaker to their memorial pages.
There is a headstone for Charles L. and Brenda C. Fazenbaker, but it only has the birth info(1946 and 1947 respectively, probably still living).
The cemetery office mentioned Irvin may be buried in a family plot, but they don't have a record of it. I have walked the entire cemetery and have found no marker for him.

RE: Irvin L. Fazenbaker
I don't remember the names, but there are 3 other Fazenbakers at this cemetery.
If you don't already have them, I can get them next time I am at this cemetery.

re duplicate memorials
Hello, This is a note trying to help. I just want to let you both know I have just found duplicate Find A Grave Memorial Records for both of your memorials for Kenneth Harold TICHNELL1924-2001 John Fazenbaker has # 84004859 at Tichnell Cemetery, Garrett Co., and John Evans has # 49040845 at Oleander Memorial Gardens, Wilmington, North Carolina where his first wife Charlotte nee Hagan 1926-1985 is buried. After Charlotte died in 1985 Kenneth remarried in 1987 Rachael Ann nee Audine (1937- ?still alive), the widow of Ralph Edwin Dayton (1930-1972). Hopefully you can both work out to fix this duplication. Good luck. Kind Regards from Barb Muir Gillespie.
PS As the one by John Fazenbaker is in his family cemetery near where he died, and where his parents are also buried I think this is the one where he is buried. Kind Regards from Barb Muir Gillespie

Hi John, You placed an obituary in the picture section of Israel's memorial, I transcribed it into the bio section and gave you the credit for the information. Could you please delete the obituary now please? Thank you.

RE: Kelley, Robert K
No thank you at least not yet I just found this site yesterday and I am very excited to see it. I really wanted you to know how much I appreciate all your hard work. Maybe someday as I get more familiar with the site and such I would love to help.
Thank you
