Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a family genealogist since 1967. My Skillman line dates back to 1664 in America. I am a member of the National Genealogical Society, The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, Sons of the American Revolution, the National Huguenot Society, and The Order of the Founders and Patriots of America. I am also President of the Skillman Family Association, Inc. and Project Administrator of the Skillman DNA Project.

I am a passionate genealogist and great fan of Find A Grave. I have "met" several previously unknown cousins through this website. Nearly all of the memorials I have created on this website are for family or friends. I will gladly transfer management upon request, if within Find a Grave protocol and your direct ancestor is not also a direct ancestor of mine.

Re photo of Riverside Cemetery
I want to thank you so much for taking this picture. I have some relatives buried there and will never be able to visit this cemetery. Thankyou.

Is my daughter eligible to join the DAR? Can you send me a family tree?

Hi John,
We respectfully request permission to use the entrance sign photo in our personal tree. Marie has a cousin interred there and the photo will make a great addition to our tree.

Thanks for your consideration.

Neurath graves ~ Oakwood Cemetery
Hello John & Lee. I stumbled across Lucretia Neurath's grave and photographed it for you, while looking for someone else. Thought you'd like to see it. And in the process, found a bunch of other Neurath's in the same lot. Point being, if you want them transferred to you just give me a holler, maybe you can add relationship links. Rich.

RE: Daniel Spangler
Sorry for the late reply. If you ever get around there, I would love to have a good picture of Daniel Spangler's gravesite.

Health has been a recurring theme these days.

Thank you for getting back to me...and apologies for not replying sooner.

RE: Daniel Spangler
I got so excited, I forgot to mention...

yeah, my mother and sister are extremely interested in joining DAR. I am merely interested in the history of it all.

Again. Thank you

Hi John,
Thank you so much for the photo of Daniel Spangler. I am wondering if you can make out the inscription on the headstone.
