As a result my relocation, to Florida, I will no longer be available for Pennsylvania photographs or research and it will take quite some time to become as familiar with Bay County, Florida and surrounding areas, as I was in my original home area of Armstrong County, PA.
========================

Born and raised in Apollo, Pa., which was the epitome of "Small Town USA," in the 1950's. Graduated from College, taught High School Biology for 6 years and then I grew up and joined the Navy. My goal was to Serve our country and see the world at the same time and then, after one 4 year hitch, I would resume a Teaching career. Things sometimes do not work out as planned...In 1997, after spending 22 years in the Service, I retired, back to my home, in Armstrong County, PA. Retirement has enabled me to work and concentrate on the main love of my life, which is my Family and Friends and, also enabled me the time to pursue my addiction to our family history and genealogy. There has also been ample time, left over, to engage in the secondary love of my life, which is fishing. Now, there had always been an interest in family history and genealogy and these fishing pursuits of boating, canoeing and tramping the streams, in search of the wily Trout and Bass has led me to many cemeteries, which are located in out of the way places. It is to the point...and, sometimes to the chagrin and frustration of my wife, where I cannot pass by a cemetery without "exploring a little bit." Thankfully I have married a wonderful and understanding wife, who, in spite of her seeming, sometimes frustration, just winks and grins whenever I tell her about the discovery of a "New" Cemetery...and then admonishes me to be sure not to miss anyone's stone. (As if I would, Eh?)
Many of the cemeteries, in this historic area of the country, are very old...some are grown over and a lot of markers are in advanced disrepair and are illegible. I have come to believe that we are losing our heritage and history, by allowing this to happen. After discovering Find-a-Grave, it has become easy to combine my hobbies with family history and the recording of the old cemeteries in my home area.
It is my goal to record as many of the small church or family cemeteries, as possible, in Armstrong County and adjoining counties, before I am too old to get out of the rocking chair. It is a guess there are still a few years, to go, before that occurs: I hope!

No problem Burke, and sorry in advance for the massive overload with editing all my Floyd family. I go through spurts of working on the family stuff so it usually happens in runs.

Photo of Tirzah Hilliard headstone
Hello,
Tirzah is my great grandmother. I was hoping to get a clearer image of her tombstone and wondered if you had a digital image I could play with.

My mother left me a photo but scanning it didn't improve it.

Last summer, I drove to Mount Varnum Cemetery, but I was unable to locate her headstone. I believe it's been moved as the cemetery is rather small and the shape is somewhat distinctive.

I'm working on the families in the area of Leechburg ans currently the family of Phillip George(http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=leechburg&id=I03584)

There appears to be a problem with the birth date of daughter Susanna. In some places it is 21 Jul 1854 and others 21 Jul 1855. Considering sister Elizabeth Jane was born 8 Apr 1854, I would suggest it is the latter.
