Bio Photo I live in California and love how this site lets me research my New Jersey family history. Many thanks to all the members who create and maintain memorials, suggest corrections and contribute photos.

Most of my known ancestors lived in central New Jersey or eastern Pennsylvania. Here are the surnames of my g.g.g.grandparents (all 32 now found and photographed in FindAGrave):

Grove and Bastedo
Lewis and Smith
Smock and Schenck
Blackwell and Pierson
Cubberly and Quigley
Black and Wood
Hendrickson and Conover
Cornell and Tomlinson
Morris and Holmes
Martindell and Jemes
Hutchinson and Norton
Springer and Keeler
Whitlock and Schanck
Drake and Titus
Hall and Van Court

I welcome contact from long-lost cousins or anyone with questions about the memorials I manage. Please submit an Edit Request if you have corrections, additional details or family links -- I'm always happy to accept well-sourced updates.

99935922 - Orpha & Albert C. Fries
Hello - I was referred to you as the one who supplied the bio info for Orpha.
I may be related to Albert so I"m wondering if you might know anything about his parents and/or birthplace.
I found the signatures of Al and Orpha Fries in my great aunt's memorial book at her funeral in 1988 and there are Fries family members on our family tree - but I can't find where Al fits in.

Thanks for any help you might be able to offer me. And I couldn't find the 1940 census you referenced in the bio. And hints?

Thanks - Janet
