Bio and Links
I have been photographing grave stones since the 1980's in the southern N.J./PA area. I first started (like many) with my own family tree, and then I started photographing grave markers of Civil War and Revolutionary War Veterans' grave sites (among others) in the late 1980's and early 1990's. I moved to southeast GA in 1996. I have MANY more photos from years ago (about 2000) than the ones I have posted on FIND-A-GRAVE. Lately, I've been enjoying helping other members of FAG by taking volunteer photos of grave markers. Any changes or corrections to my photos or information please feel free to contact me. Also, anyone wanting to use my photos for ANY reason, please ask first, I usually OK a request as long as I am given credit for the photo. Thanks.

Some of the surnames I am researching include: Lau (German origin, not Asian), Wynn, Scull, Navone, Henderson, Corson, Biggs, Camp, Cheesman, Wolbert (Woolbert), Cresse, Elmer, & Lummis. Most of these family names are from the southern N.J./Philadelphia, PA area.

P.S. I've also been (since the early 1970's) a HUGE Philadelphia PHILLIES and FLYERS fan!! Greg (THE BULL) Luzinski was my favorite Phillie!

Thank you so very much for posting pictures of my grandparent's headstone! I have just started looking on-line for my ancestry, but I have so much written down from my parents and grandparents. How did you find out that my grandparents were killed in a car accident? I thought that was something only the family would know after all these years. Thanks again and I look forward to hearing from you. I think our paths will cross again because some of the names you mentioned you were interested in are some of my family names.

RE: grave of Lt.Col John C. Mounger
Mr. Lau,
Thank you for your reply. The historical record I located reveals that the remains of approximately 3,320 Confederate dead at Gettysburg were located in individual and mass graves by an effort initiated by a Dr. Weaver who lived in Gettysburg during the period. In 1871- 72 the remains were shipped down the East coast and delivered to the states of origin for each identifiable soldier as far as could be determined. Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, VA. received over 2,200; Oakwood Cemetery in Raleigh, NC received 137; Magnolia Cemetery in Charleston, SC received 82 and North Laurel Grove Cemetery in Savannah, GA received 40 remains including those of Lt. Col. John Clark Mounger. I have been researching this former resident of Quitman, GA, where I live. He and his family, consisting of his wife, three daughters and three sons, is very interesting and perhaps, in some respects, rare. Specifically, not only was Lt. Col. Mounger K.I.A., but all three of his sons were killer in battle between 1862 and 1864.

I have, for the past year under-taken a series of efforts to remember and honor this family's courage and sacrifice. Several have been completed; two are near completion and one, involving moving the remains of Col. Mounger and one of his sons whose present grave location is in Fredericksburg, VA. I believe this latter effort can be done but, it will involve a process which may take time.

I would be pleased to know if you were able to locate the unmarked grave site of Lt. Col. Mounger in Lot#853 Grave#14 recorded in the records of North Laurel Grove Cemetery/Savannah, GA. The location is in the Confederate Section of the cemetery.

Thank you for your help.
