Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello everybody. First of all, I'm from Butler County, Pa. and I'm a baby boomer and a retiree as of 2012. I'm a product of my generation and I'm a veteran of the US Army having served a year in Vietnam. Agent Orange assassinated my pancreas and I'm a type 1 diabetic because of it. I'm of the Roman Catholic persuasion deeply involved with my church, a member of the Knights of Columbus, a member of the VFW, and my politics are libertarian but mostly conservative. I became interested in cemetaries because I love history and love the stories of people. Every grave has a story, to be sure. My main goal in life is to be a burden to as many people as I can. (Did I mention, I've been married to a long suffering woman since 1975? I just did, I guess.) I want to be buried when I die and have an awkwardly shaped tombstone so I can be a burden to the guy who cuts the grass around my grave. The tombstone text is to be printed upside-down so that curiosity seekers will have to struggle to read it. The last line will read, "Made ya look!" De colores y Ultreya!

RE: re: Sarah Thompson
Thanks, I can just drag the pic into my computer. I appreciate your taking the picture though. I thought the graves of Sarah and her husband were unmarked. Folks like you help make this such a great site.

Sarah Thompson/Pic
Would you mind if I used your pic of Sarah G. Thompson's gravestone on my Ancestry page? She was the GGrandmother of my G-Grandmother.

Thank you for the great photos taken of Harvey and his wife Edith in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery in Moniteau, Butler Co., PA.

Your efforts on behalf of these relatives are most appreciated.

Thank you
What a wonderful bio. Thank you for taking this picture. Thank your wife although maybe she encourages this to get you out of the house.
