|Bio and Links|
I have been interested in genealogy since 2004. I am retired and live in Gambrills, Maryland. My main genealogy interests are in Western Maryland and S. Central Pennsylvania. My wife is also involved in her genealogy in Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. We visit cemeteries to find our ancestors' stones and markers. I enjoy photographing the monuments.|
Main families of interest are Minnich (Minich), Keefauver, Lemen, Harsh and Stone, Craig, Lydic, and Buterbaugh. Others are Johnston, Swonger, Lloyd, and Miner.
If I have made a duplicate, please contact me and it will be deleted quickly. Use edit button to add corrections. Also, since only five free photo spots per memorial are allowed in findagrave, please do not add unnecessary photos to any memorials. Save room for future personal photos from family. Unnecessary photos include close-up photos of the plot number on markers and the cemetery plot signs. The plot number should be entered in the Bio plot section of the memorial not as a picture. Obituaries should be typed in the Bio sect and not added as photos. Transfers may be made if you ask using the EDIT button and also state relationship. You have my permission to use my grave stone / marker photos for your private use. For any use of my family or my rescue-orphan photos please contact me. Hopefully, you will source or link the photos. It never hurts to give someone credit for helping you.
I have been purchasing "orphan-rescue" antique photos with names sufficient to search and find a 'home' for them. Some success has been had. There are photo albums of Hellyers (Seneca F., etc. - PA) and Hopkins (Arthur, Lewis, etc.) that are awaiting family. Please visit my Rescue-Orphans Virtual Cemetery.
A free site to check certain years of Maryland State Archives for death certificate index is
This site is a hodge-podge but you can search Baltimore city and the counties for individuals. It has just name and death date and whether death was in Baltimore City or a county. Sometimes the counties have age. Good Luck. I have been using this to upgrade entries in Cedar Hill Cemetery.
I will try to be a friend to all and will help where possible.
Findagrave is as good as we make it.

Thanks for the photo. It gave me the husbands name which is in my tree. By that I was able to get her maiden name and submit the corretion.

Thank you so much for the photo of her stone. She is related to my step-father. We live in Virginia and had no idea she was buried in Maryland.
