Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and raised in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia and now live in Martinsburg, WV. I enjoy looking up cemetery records for people who request help in locating family members buried locally or in the tri-state area.
My maternal grandparent are from Columbus, Ohio (Schwaigert) and West Virginia, Virginia and Maryland,(Crum). My paternal grandparents from Ohio, Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia are Harding, Jones, and Johnson.
I do try to be exact in my recordings, however if I make a mistake, please let me know. I record from monument and markers that are in the cemetery I am working. I take photos of those monuments and markers to verify name spelling and dates. I do record from funeral annoucements in local and area newspapers. I then go to that cemetery and take a photo of the burial place.
If I can be of service to anyone, just let me know.

Please for the sake of correctness and speed use the edit tab on memorials you want corrected and state the correction. Thank you.

My father's picture...
James Clarence Oates Sr. is my father. The picture you posted IS NOT my father. Please remove it. I contacted you several months ago concerning this matter. I have added a picture of my father and a picture of his burial place. I will GREATLY appreciate it if you remove the pictures you posted. Thank you in advance.

Hello Monte,
Thank you so much for the info on Aretta and Hubert Hershberger. I have updated her page with links to her husband and to her son James.
Could you please visit Memorial# 152689893 and see if my information is now correct?
Also, if you were a friend of family of Rose Marie, please accept my condolences.

I entered these pages because they appeared to be related to a WWII casualty from Maryland. Hubert's name is listed here:
with other casualties from Allegany County.
Thanks again,
Dan Phelan

Hello Monte,
You sent an edit regarding Marcus's birth date ,location and death location. I have looked high and low and can't find any docs anywhere for this little fellow. If you would kindly forward the information or tell me where to look, I can edit,but have hit a brick wall. I can only find his brother's information.
Thank you and have a wonderful week.

You have added his portrait three times. I assume it was a hiccup on the site. Would you please delete two of them?

Correction for Cemetery Location
Hi Monte,

Thank you for all of the entries and info you have posted.

Mr. Ivey Lee Hill, Sr. , your entry #167560759, is my oldest brother. Our family started the Hill Family Cemetery in 2015 where he is laid to rest. The cemetery is located on Hill Circle Road in Garland, NC. Please make this correction. He is not buried in the cemetery in Newton, NC. Thank you kindly.

RE: Cavey memorial
Monty, you are welcome to copy any photo I put up of a tombstone. In my opinion that's why we put them up. It's kind to ask permission, however. I did not keep the originals as they mean nothing to me, but it's easy to save the photo off the website. Best wishes.
