Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please let me know if you would like me to transfer any of my memorials to your family that are not in my family. My grandson Owen and I really enjoy this time together. He especially likes the veteran areas and is really into Gettysburg and Lincoln. We found a relative that had brunch with Lincoln on the day of his address and then she sat on the platform steps to hear his speech.

We have taken many extra photos when looking for family so that someone else can use them. Please do not hesitate to ask for a transfer.

There are many headstones that are completely erased by time or very hard to read. I will list those as Unknown in the hope that maybe someone will recognize them. I will leave flowers so that they know they were not forgotten.

And for all the Findagrave members, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I was fortunate enough to have an encounter with my Dad who passed in 1995. While visiting our cemetery, I always stop and check the flowers I had put on the grave. Last time I was there, I was sitting in my car (hot outside) and a brief fragrance came past me. I recognized it immediately. It was the same way my Dad smelled after showering and shaving in the morning getting ready for the office. I have not smelled that pleasant fragrance since 1995.

The latest surprise I had was at Hampton Union cemetery in Hampton, PA. When I got home and loaded my photos on the computer, I had a picture I did not take. It was a complete figure of a person that was translucent. But the odd part was that I was alone that day. It could have been me because my arms are not long enough to take a full body picture and there was no background--no other stones, trees, grass or houses--just white.

RE: Eyster
This is actually not my family. I am doing research for my cousin who is over 80. This is his family from his "other" side. He barely knew any of his mother's family and she knew little more about any of them - long story. I'm just trying to help him and his family learn more about their heritage. As I find information, I'm sharing it to help others in their research. But, thank you for the offer to transfer. That is very kind of you! And thank you for processing the edits!

Aaack....sorry Sheila...I have so many Elizabeth Manning's in my tree...if you could give me a memorial # that would really help me to narrow which one it is.

Duplicate memorial
Leah Leiphart Schaeffer #119347500 is a duplicate. The original uses the last name spelling of Neiman Schaeffer because she was married twice. I already put an edit in to connect Zacharias to the original memorial so you can delete this one. Thanks, Kasey

Thank you for the pic, Sheila...was this a standalone stone or were there two other smaller headstones on either side?
