Bio and Links
Bio Photo This photo was taken in 1968 as a high school student working on a tiny graveyard restoration project. My family genealogy has been an intense 14+ year study and has led me back to circa 1755 London. Many folks have been kind enough to assist me in the tedious but rewarding research project. Contributing to Find-A-Grave is my way of giving back and paying forward.

I believe that a memorial belongs with the family and loved ones to cherish and maintain. My mission is to be cooperative with others doing research and I am more than willing to transfer memorials I have created.
*** When photographing a memorial, I do not alter it's condition. I take them as I find them!

"I think most people can do a whole awful lot more if they just try, ... They just don't have the confidence that they can write a novel or they can write poetry or they can take pictures or paint or whatever, and so they don't do it, and they leave the planet dissatisfied with themselves."
quote from Gordon A. Parks, Sr. 1912-2006

Most favorite inscription;
"BETWEEN THE STIRRUP AND THE GROUND
IS MERCY SOUGHT AND MERCY FOUND"

Her daughter, Missouri Edley Laffoon, married Peter Branch Bishop (P.B.) not Preston, his brother.

I just noticed this in the notes/bio of Mary.

Peter B.,and Missouri E., were my great-grandparents.

Cammie Alexander Russell was an uncle of Myrtle Russell Bowles. 91143596

I'm trying to figure out how to change his parents' names on his memorial.

RE: McCarthy
Anne's death certificate says Calvary Cemetery, Conshohocken. Fred P. I wasn't sure which Calvary. I based it on a comparison to dozens of other obits. from Narberth, Church of St. Margaret, that were buried in Calvary, Conshohocken, so it's an assumption.

Hi,

I hope you won't be offended . I am sure it was an honest mistake ... You have Emily Boyd Lloyd as Huey Lloyd's mother . Dora Mae Crow & George Washinton Lloyd were his parents ...
Have a great night, Brinda

RE: McCarthy
Hi Louise: you're very welcome. The section has been added to the list of those that are regularly maintained albeit on a volunteer basis. Searching for stones in these "cleared" areas is much easier than those that are not! I'm glad i went during the day, as the sun was just in the right position to cast a shadow to reveal the lettering that is usually tough to make out. Let me know if i can locate anyone else for you at MMC in the future!
