Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a resident of Somerset County, PA and started this adventure with researching genealogy for my family, this led me to searching for family members headstones to add to my research files. A posting on a forum page led me here and it was been fun surveying my local graveyards and taking pictures. Now my family thinks I'm a total nut. Oh well, here are the fruits of my labors to share with you all.

As it is labor intensive to take the time and take the pictures, make the name and info lists, and then post the pictures, I ask that you respect my photos and not steal copies of them from here. I retain all copyrights to these photos and will remove them if I find they are being used inappropriately without explicit written permission from me.

RE: David and Mary E Merrill, Grantsville
Thank you very much. I live abt 30 minutes from the graves. Here's a story for you. Their son, Jesse, wanted them moved from the family cemetery in a farm in Avilton, MD, so he and his son dug up remains and moved to Grantsville cemetery, where he and his wife, Minnie Pope Merrill, are buried.

The numbers are #80301419 for David and #80301587 for Mary, who was called Mollie. Thye come from long lines of Church of Brethren in her side and his. So,lucky to have the Brehren books and researchers.

Thank you very much for your work.

Thank you for your work. Would you want to transfer my great grandparents to me or would you be willing to post additional information? Their daughter, Margaret Edith, is my paternal grandmother.

Evans Family
I am researching the Evans Family of Mt Nebo and surrounding area. After looking at Mount Gilead Missionary Baptist Church Cemetery I found that some of the Info is mixed up. For example Obidiah and William A.are brothers. There was 4 of them that came here from 1836 thru 1854. I am presently trying to find the brothers and sisters of their father,his name was David. Any help you can give me would be appreciated and if there is any thing I may be able to help you with I will. Thanks Jill

RE: Frances Hershberger
Back in 2012, you sent me a message asking if I wanted to have custody of Frances Hershberger's web page. I just discovered this message and am sorry that I am so late in responding to you. Yes, I will be willing to take charge of her web page, if you don't mind.

RE: Hershberger Cemetery, Elklick Twp.

I have put her 27 memorials into a virtual cemetery so they can be quickly located and will be contacting one of the admins to have them merged into the originals in the correct cemetery. I will also get her main cemetery photos moved to the correct place. I will let you know when it is done.
