Bio Photo Retired military and living near Antietam battlefield.


If I have added a family member or a good friend, I am happy to transfer memorials. I am not bothered by F.A.G. guidelines in transfers. I am concerned about getting family members "back together." I DO transfer distant relatives since they SHOULD be with family.
I am also happy to transfer memorials of close friends as well as family.

REMEMBER, these sites are in memory of someones' ancestors. If you place a photo on a memorial, make it good enough that you would be happy with it on your own.

All men die...not all men really live.

I am looking for Charles & Flo Liddington. Flo died in 1972. Charlie was alive in 1974. They were my mothers' mother & step-father.
I believe they lived modestly within a half hour of Danville, PA. Also,
I am also searching for any info regarding the roster for the 33rd or 34th Battalions of the Maryland Militia. An ancestor I am searching for, Thomas Mock, who served with this unit in New Jersey in 1777 under George Washington. He had a wife named Sarah and parents were George & Catherine Mock. They were from "SUPPOSEDLY" living between Sharpsburg and Middletown, Washington & Fredrick County, MD.

I have just now submitted edits to link Mrs. Snyder's parents memorials with hers. While I have not found a birth certificate for her yet (my wife's family, and I have just begun working on it within the last week), I can send you a copy of her youngest sisters obituary notice, if you would want to use it as verification. The obituary notice lists the parents and all of the siblings. Just let me know.

Thank you for your time.

Elizabeth Schurtz, Scholl Harmon #45097067
Hi, still working on the German Reformed Cemetery in Greencastle, PA; I see that you added a memorial #45097067 for Elizabeth; I cannot find her grave in Greencastle but in your information on the grave, you say she is in the Reformed Church in Chambersburg. Chambersburg is about 30 miles north of Greencastle, so maybe you got the wrong graveyard. What do you think? thanks, Jack

duplicate names
Hi I mistakenly added a grave for Elizabeth Duffy; It was assigned 175437307 AND she is the same as your Elizabeth Duffy 67531067. I can delete my addition or you can delete yours to get this correct. Note that I added a plot location and information about her husband. If you could delete yours it would give better data but, up to you. thanks, Jack

Private Benjamin Beach
Hello. I've been researching my Beach line and had a question about this Benjamin Beach. I was curious where you learned about his possible family ties. Was it through the cemetery records?

Thank you,
Christine Lowe

Reformed Church Graveyard, Greencastle, Franklin, PA
Dear Birdman; are you in charge of the informational page for the Reformed Church Graveyard in Franklin County, PA? If so, can I get the Graveyard transferred to me? For the last year, I have been working on the graves, mapping, and transcribing the graves in this graveyard. The Reformed Church; now the Grace United Church approved of my work and I would like to get all the gravestones entered and remove the find a grave incorrect memorials that are not in the cemetery.

My mapping of the graveyard is almost finished; I have divided the cemetery into 6 Rows and 12 sections and then numbered those graves in the defined squares. I would like to add that map to the Graveyard site.

I will go through all the photo requests that are outstanding and fulfill those requests if the graves have been found. So far, there are over 330 graves in the cemetery and I have identified about 2/3 of them. I have also found about 4 Revolutionary War Veterans, 4 War of 1812 Veterans, 6 Union and 1 Confederate Civil War Veterans. These numbers will change. Thanks for your help in transferring the cemetery to me if at all possible. Jack Webb
